I made this card for the card*a*licious challenge #20. Had to use blue, green, and circles on a birthday card. I used some older Sassafras flower paper that I have been hoarding. This is the first line of Sassafras that caught my attention and started a somewhat unhealthy obsession. TFL!

Birds Hill Park

We took the dogs to Birds Hill Park today. They had so much fun!! Josko has never been to the 'woods' before. I think he was overwhelmed by all of the new smells. We let them go off leash in the giant clearing. Usually this is where we would see a lot of deer, but they must of heard us coming. Here are some photos. Love the one of Josko mid-run with crazy ears. And really, could Cleo be any happier?

poor neglected stamps

I have a little collection of stamps that has been growing a lot lately. And I hardly ever use them. I have had the Trim Trimmery Sassafras stamps for the longest time and haven't even used them once. Until yesterday!!

One of my favourite looks is embossed white on kraft, so I decided to give it a go. I love how this card turned out. The flowers are Sass Paper Whimsies.

As for my other stamps...they will get their turn. I decided I must use a stamped image on every project for the next little while. That way I can justify buying another set of stamps today :)

October Afternoon Cards

I made these cards using a varity of OA papers. OA is definately one of my favourite paper manufacturers right now. The lines coordinate so well with each other and I seem to use up every last scrap on cards. My faves out of this bunch are the monster and the ladybug ones!

My mom is getting this one for Mother's Day!

Page Maps 'What's on My Mind's Eye' Contest

I used this Page Maps sketch to create a layout about my niece Eva. She has been on my mind constantly as it has been so long since I last saw her. She got her ears pierced when she was just 2 months old and already had 2 pairs of gold and diamond earrings!! I love how adorable she looks with her baby bling.

I love our new Jeep!!!

Love, love, love it!!! So does Joe. It has changed things so much already for us. I'm most looking forward to going camping with our little family. Can you even imagine Josko swimming in the lake?? I thing we need to buy a video camera 'cause I'm sure it will be YouTube worthy!!
