What I did this weekend!!!!

I have been busy with a crop day and an online crop. 
This post is image heavy - but I would love to know what you think!!!!

I made this wall hanging with Wendy Vecchi stamps, Tim Holtz grungeboard and distress inks.  The album is from 7Gypsies.  The paper on the acrylic is from Tim's new paper line, too!!!

The following LOs and cards were for SSZ - the online crop they had this weekend - Stevie's bookmark card challenge.  The papers and embellishments are from Kaiser.

This picture was probably the last photo we had of the 4 of us, before my stepdad went into hospital, over 3 years ago.  It has been up in my scraproom - so, I decided to scrap it using all Kaisercraft, except the ribbon (unknown) and flowers from Prima.

This stamp is one of Krista's new ones - from the Stamp Barn. 
I coloured it with my copics and added some stickles.

I coloured this image using my copics - I will have to check who makes it. 
I can't remember right now.  The flowers and paper are Prima.

We went to game 5 of the first round of the playoffs - Buffalo vs Boston. 
It was a great game and Buffalo won!!

This stamp is adorable!!! I coloured it with my copics. 

A very cute stamp from Stampavie.  I love their new line of stamps!!!

The challenge, here, was to make a card using red, white and black and a symbol from the rummoli board
 - I picked the heart.

I LOVE this stamp by Mo Manning at Stamping Bella - how cute!!!!!

When we were at my mom's, Cuddles took up residence on the tub mat.  He sits on the mat at home, too, but it is on the floor.  Too funny.  Chris's uncle called him the tub ornament - hence the title.  I used Tim Holtz paper, sizzix die cut, letters and distresss ink.  The flowers are inked with distress ink, too.

A sweet birthday card for Michaela. The images from CC Designs are so cute.

One of Magnolia's newest images - Tilda the Pirate - so sweet.  This paper is perfect for the stamp!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Just Magnolia - One for the Girls

The last card for today is for Just Magnolia.  "One for the Girls".
Here is my card!

Pixie Cottage Challenge

The 3rd card I did was for the Pixie Cottage Challenge.  I met Tanya (one of the DT) at my Copic Certification class a few weeks ago.  She encouraged me to stop by - so here I am!!  Great sketch and challenge!  It is an image from Stampavie!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge

The second is for Simon Says Stamp - their challenge blog.  It was based on a sketch.  The stamp is from Stampavie!  Here is my entry:

Online Challenges

It's been awhile since I have posted a card in a challenge.  Here are 4!!
The first one is for the Copic Colour Challenge #64 I have used one of Krista's stamps from Sunshine Designs.  I had to use the copic colours - G00, BG23 and BV02.

A Thank You and a New Certification

A big thanks to Denise at  Scrap~tures for having me as her first guest creative team member.  Despite all the family challenges I have had over the last few months, I really hope that I was able to inspire and provide ideas to the message board and the kit members.  I plan on sticking around!!!  Hopefully, I'll get back to a normal routine in the next few weeks.  I loved my spot as GCT!!

Today, started a new certification and hopefully, some new opportunities.  I completed my certification as a Copic Designer.  I can teach other about my favourite colouring medium - to scrapbookers, stampers, quilters and even Manga enthusiasts!!  I can't wait to see where this will take me.  Watch for some classes at Verna's in Smiths Falls (at Memory Lane) and perhaps some other places, too!!

Copic Weekend

Yesterday, I took 3 classes on Copics, Glimmer Mist and Prima Products.  Today, I am off to take the Copic Certification Course.  Both are being taught by Sally Lynn MacDonald!  Verna invited me as her DT - it was a great day, Saturday, and looking forward to so much more, today!!
