Blooming Friends!

Welcome OCS Fans!

Today is Wednesday and Spring is in the air! The snow has finally melted and now I can’t wait for the flowers to start blooming and adding some colour to our yard and other yards around us!

For today’s card I’m sharing Blooming Friends by High Hopes Rubber Stamps. I’m pretty sure this little girl and hedgehog are probably talking about the beautiful flowers and what a gorgeous spring day it is outside! I coloured in the card with Copic Markers and to finish the scene, I added in some clouds and made the grass look like she was up on a hilltop.

Hope you like it and have a wonderful spring!

Party Animals

Welcome OCS Fans!

Sharing a fun card featuring: High Hopes – Wild Party and sentiment High Hopes – Birthday Party Animals! I just love these little characters.


I first stamped the sentiment using Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Dusty Concord and then to emboss it I used some Versamark and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Using my MISTI, made this very easy to do. I decided to add a little bit of bling as well, so I die cut a few small balloons and added them on each side of the sentiment. I also decided to give them some fuzzy pop-poms on their hats to finish them off. Enjoy!

Thank You Sew Much Card

Hi There!

My parents recently celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary! Such an accomplishment and we are all so proud of them! We had a wonderful celebration with close friends and family.

I wanted to make my parents something special and unique for their special anniversary and I knew a friend who did quilting. I’ve always wanted to learn how to hand quilt and so I approached her and asked her if she would teach me. She agreed and I was super excited, I was going to learn how to do quilting.

First thing!!!!! I have a lot more respect for all of you quilting ladies and gentlemen out there!!! I had no idea how much work went into it! LOL! However, I loved the final result and so did my parents and family and that made it all worth it!

As a thank you to my friend Marilyn who graciously put up with all my questions and who assisted me on how to cut the fabric and line it up as well as doing the 3 layer sandwich and then sewing the border, I made her this little thank you card.

Coffee Time Kitty

Hi There,

Back to share another card with you. It is a freebie from Craftin Desert Diva’s called Coffee Time Kitty. I was hoping to share it in the Coffee Blog Hop too, but I was a little late! LOL!


Here is a close up:


To make this card, I printed out the image in grayscale and then coloured the image in using PrismaColor Premier pencils and Gamsol. I cut out the image using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out and then went around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Dusty Concord.

For the fancy border, I used Spellbinders Lacy Squares – S4295.

The sentiment is from Craftin Desert Diva’s – Got Coffee stamps. Created flag by using die cut from Craftin Desert Diva’s – Flag Banner Dies.

Added in some ribbon on the side made by American Crafts.

Hope you like it!
