Sunshine-y Anya

Well, hello there!

Another beautiful Sunday here in Toronto and here I am relaxing indoors. Summer may be ending, but Anya's out there enjoying every minute. I made this card using an Anya stamp from The Greeting Farm. My inspiration came from this weeks Farm Fresh Friday sketch challenge on TGF's blog: , as well as a colour challenge I found on Splitcoast Stampers (CC284). Typically I shy away from using red and green together unless I'm making Christmas cards, but add a little pink, and it's got a cheery life of its own to it! I just loved this colour combo challenge. The pink dp from Basic Grey was fun to use too.

What do you think?

Christmas is coming!

Top o’ the mornin’ to ya!

I hope you had a great weekend! Over the past few weeks I’ve been working on some Christmas cards. Have you started yours? I’m not trying to brag – really. My hubby and I have been watching 24 on DVD so I just starting colouring some Christmas-y images while watching.

Have you made any so far? How many do you typically make if you do? Feel free to leave a link in your message to any holiday cards you’ve made. I’d love to see them!

Hi there!

Hope you're enjoying your day so far. It's quite rainy and a bit cool here near Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I just got home from church and took home only one thought, and that is that God can make something good from your failures in life. We're all flawed, and we all make mistakes, so this is comforting to hear.

Today I thought I'd share a fun card I made while enjoying crop night at Scrapalicious in Mississauga a few weeks ago. I really like some of the Kraftin' Kimmie stamps out there. They're really fun and whimsical. I find they're really eye catching too - different from the norm. Anywho, this card was made from their Goldilocks stamp. I raised the three bears she's holding with some foam and used my copic markers to give her some life.

What do you think?

Have a great day!
