Birthday Wishes

Hello Ladies - (and Gentlemen??)
It's Thursday and that means only one more day until the weekend!!
This weekend will be bitter sweet for me...
My brother is moving away and I am so excited for him. He is leaving to go to a new city because he got a promotion at work. I am so happy for him but I can't help but feel selfish and want him to stay!! But I do hope he enjoys himself and I know he'll be home for the holidays. I guess I better get on making him a good bye - good luck card,
but for today I have a quicky card. I created it using an image I colored a few days ago, so this card came together really quickly. I used the sketch at Stampin' Royalty :

Okay well, gotta run.
Today is a busy one. I have to work and then daughter has swimming and then I'm off to teach a class at my LSS. If you live locally you should check it out :

Have a good day,
I'll be back with another one tomorrow!

Think Spring!!

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!
With all of this beautiful weather that we have been having on the West Coast of Canada - I cannot help but wish for spring. This card was inspired by that lovely feeling. I did have a little help with the color combo at : JUGS

and the sketch at The Sweet Stop
I am also submitting it for the Cards TV Spring challenge

I love this sentiment. It's so true!!

I feel very fortunate to have a wonderful group of close friends and I cherish each and every one of them.

Take the time today to show one of your friends how much they mean to you. I already know who this card is going to and I have already tucked it into an addressed card - ready for mailing tomorrow.

Have a great day.
As my dad would say : "It's all about the love!!"

Funky and Smooth

Happy Sunday Everyone,

This card was created for the SMOOTH coloring challenge at Make it Colorful
and the FUNKY challenge at Stamp Something

And a close-up of the funky and wild girl :

Well, I hope you like.
Gotta run, we are on our way to dinner.
I hope to be back tonight to show a few more.

Chubby Bubby

Hello all of my blogger friends.
Today I have an adorable little girl to show you that my daughter has lovingly named Chubby Bubby.

I just recieved my order of C.C. Design stamps and have been busy coloring. This is the first completed card and I love it!! Green is my favorite color and I wanted a wacky hair color so I thought - why not purple??!! I was inspired by the challenge this week at Mad for Markers. I used the sketch over at Cardibilities.

I am also submitting it for the Papertake Weekly challenge : anything goes with flowers
and the Copic Creations : cool colors.
And here is a shot of the Copic Markers is used :

Well, I hope you like my wacky hair color and enjoyed peeking at the adorable little cutie.

Have a good day.
Go out and do something childish - it's good for the soul!!
