I have been busy getting few more cards done before I return to work!! UGH! This scrapping all day is going to stop...why do we have to work?

This is for another card kit from Ana - love Cosmobella!

This card is for Aimee - Happy Birthday!

This card is for Pam and Carla's challenge - using a blossom and a button!

A colleague at work - her father passed away...
This was created at Heather's Stamping Haven. Every year she does 1hr make and takes for Victim's of Violence and her anniversary sale.

They are Krista’s new stamps. We used the H2O daubers to create the background behind the bird. We then used the Polished Pigments for the bird and the stem of the white background.

The card above is for another challenge on Carla's blog. I will post a link from SSZ to her blog later. It was a card sketch.
This challenge was for SSZ - use the same stamp 2 different ways. The right one was to be with yellows and oranges to make it more fun and the left was to be in darker colours to make it more sophisticated. How did I do?
I have entered this card in the Sunshine Designs contest. Krista *loves* red so she wants cards created with as much red as possible. I emailed it to her today! The prize is $50 in her products. The contest is open until the end of August and there is only one other participant so far!

When I get my laptop back from repairs, I will post some more cards that I have made!

Here is my entry for the summer SSZ contest!
One of our favourite activities in Niagara is wine tasting. The summer months allow us to see the grapes growing on the vines with the beautiful views overlooking Lake Ontario. Last summer, we joined the '30 club' - we are one of about 100 people who get wine delivered to the house every quarter. The winery is called Thirty Bench, on the 'bench' of the Niagara escarpment. There are wine notes included from the winemaker as well. While we were there, I had some fun with the camera and our tasting glasses.
Materials used: bazzill, Bo-Bunny's Napa Valley Vineyards, Napa Valley Stripe, chipboard letters - unknown
Good Morning! I have made two more cards..

This card is for Regina - a colleague of Chris - who is leaving.

This card is for SSZ weekly challenge - use one of your oldest stamps. I have had this forever.

We are off for a week of shopping and touring of Pennsylvania - can't wait to see what goodies I find down there!
