Panda hugs


Playing along at the Gerda Steiner Designs' monthly challenge with a rather CAS card. This panda is so super cute! I hoped to give him a bamboo-looking background with the Altenew watercolor stripes stencil, but these must be super bamboos because they grow horizontally πŸ˜‚

You're "sew" awesome


My first time to play along with the Gerda Steiner Designs' monthly challenge. This bunny is "sew" cute!

I wanted to paper piece a felt heart, but the -20ΒΊC temperature outside dissuaded me from going out to get some; brrrr!

Hello!


I am following A Blog Named Hero's current challenge to copy a designer. I used an old Hero Arts set called Happy Day Animals, and changed the colours from red/black to yellow/grey, to make this sweet and easy card.

Here are the designers I was inspired by:


In retrospect, the original red/black definitely has more oomph!

Balloon shaker card

Hello there! I think happy days are days filled with rainbows and ballons. Don't you agree? :)



This shaker card is filled with Taylored Expressions' Little Bits - Balloons. I used the Taylored Expressions 9th birthday sketch (Happy birthday TE!):


One thing I need to remember is that scraps maketh scraps. I set out to use up some scraps and I really feel that I ended up with... more!

I have been building a stash of cards to send to Send A Smile 4 Kids Canada. This will be added to the pile and sent off shortly.

Sweater weather!

Happy September! Up here in Canada, there is definitely a fall breeze about already.


I had fun using the inlaid die-cut technique on this card with the SSS coffee cup die. One thing I've learned – don't throw out any of those little die-cut pieces until the card is done! You never know if you may need it...


I used the Coffee Loving Cardmakers' Sunday Sip and Sketch, and the current YNS colour challenge:

Happy holidays

Hello! There's (still) 130 days until Christmas 😁


I quite like this Christmas card. I randomly stamped snowflakes to create a background, and used the YNS Christmas Chickies paired with a sentiment from Lawn Fawn Winter Penguin. For some pizazz, I created a tiny wire coil behind the chickie, but it's a bit on the short side to be wobbling much.

Again, I was inspired by an old Mojo Monday sketch and the current YNS colour challenge:
