My New Craft!

I'd like to show you a new craft I have started.
I had never heard of Zentangle till my cousin Marj posted a picture she had done on Facebook.  I asked her more about it and decided I had to give it a go!  It is fun to do and it's claim that is is relaxing is very true!
I have a ways to go before I can frame any so practice, practice, practice! LOL!


Have a great day and stay warm!

Wedding Card Box

Here is another card box I made today for a Wedding.  Now if I had to mail this card I would make a shallow card box to accommodate the thickness of the flowers and pearls.  You can get instructions to do this on Pinterest.  Just search Stampin Up envelope maker.

That's it for today!  Have a good evening!

My First Box Card

Well it has been awhile since my last post!

I looked back and it has been since Christmas!  What the heck!!  Its not like I haven’t been making cards!  I have done several orders for Sympathy cards and Wedding cards…… but nothing new and exciting.

We went to Mexico for a family holiday with my daughter, son-in-law and the grandkids at the end of January.  We had such a good time!  Loved the heat, the people and the food!  Hated to come home to the freezing cold temps!!

Then we have had the last couple weeks of the 2014 Olympics!  It was great watching all the events and watching the Canadians do so well!!  I’m VERY proud!!

Anyway here is my first box card.  All supplies used is from Stampin Up.

These are not that hard to make!  They fold flat for mailing, just raise the flaps and push to one side. 

Thanks for stopping by!

A Kcup Christmas

Today I found this Kcup holder on Pinterest.  I just had to give it a try.  I printed off the template and found it was too small for the size punch I needed to use so I reprinted the template and changed the setting to "fit to page". It turned out perfect!
Here it is.
Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!

In a “Fall” Mood

Fall is in the air here in central Canada!  harvest is in full swing and the leaves have started to fall off the trees!  Where did the time go??

So because of this I made a fall card today.

a BIG posting today!

Hello everyone!

I have not been on to post for about 3 weeks now!  I had my granddaughter for the last three weeks of her holidays from school.  She spent a lot of time in my craft room making cards, boxes, key rings…..you name it!  It was a lot of fun!  I even got some things made but never got them posted so here we go…….

This card is my first try and making a chalk board card-

This next one I cased from Pinterest.  It is called floating circles-

Duct Tape Flowers??

That’s right!  Duct tape flowers!

My grand daughter Avery is staying with us till school goes back in and like all the young girls she is going crazy making duct tape wallets, headbands and bracelets.  I too a look and thought why not flowers for cards?

So all i did was put the tape on some card stock and then used some CB flower dies and voila…..

I love how shinny they are!

I made a Sympathy card and Thinking of you card using my flowers.

Productive Day!

Hey everyone!

Wasn’t feeling well today so didn’t do any yard work.  Instead I stayed indoors and worked on a couple cards and a card set.

First up is a very simple card.

DSCF1888-kimr

Next up is a card I made using a Tim Holtz die set.  I did the grunge look on this one.

DSCF1887-kimr 

The last item is a card box with 12 all occasion cards.  It is the same box pattern as my previous post.

Boxed card Set

Hi Everyone!

Today I made a boxed card set for a dear friend of mine who’s birthday is coming up next week.  Her favourite color is navy so this is what I used.  The set of cards are good for any occasion.

The box pattern is very easy to make and came from Pinterest.  you can find the pattern here.

I filled the box with a set of 6 cards but it could hold more if you wanted.

Here it is-

My New Purchase!

I haven't bought any new card supplies in quite awhile now so when I found this 5 pc. Flower die by Spellbinders for only 7.99, it was mine!
Today I made a wedding card using only three layers.  It was very simple to make and I think it looks very elegant!


Thanks for looking!
Have a great weekend!

Cards Finally!

Well it has been awhile, yet again, since my last post!  I have been very busy here!

First working in the yard getting everything in shape for the summer.  Now that hubby and I are both retired we are enjoying working in the yard doing things that have been waiting for some time now!

Then mid June My brother and I did a 10 day cousins trip!  We drove out to the BC coast and worked our way back home visiting cousins along the way.  We put on 4055km and had a blast getting to know our cousins better.  We now feel like we still have family!  We never got to know our cousins because our Dad was in the Air Force and we travelled all over the place!

When we got back we had our 2 grandkids for 2 weeks and they sure kept us busy!!!

Now things are back to normal for awhile.  We had such a storm here today that the power was off for 4 hours so I figured it would be a great time to make a couple cards!  Here they are!

An Exciting Weekend

My daughter asked me a couple months ago if I wanted to join her and do the Bridge City Boogie 5k in Saskatoon on June 9th.  Well I said yes even though I was in terrible shape!!  I hadn’t kept up with my walking all winter.  No excuses, just got lazy I guess.

So I got busy walking again and trying to get my distance up.  Years ago I used to walk 2 miles a day but again, I got lazy and was only doing one mile and not everyday!!  I really need to smarten up and start taking better care of myself now that I am retired.  I have no excuses any more like I’m too tired after work, or I just haven’t got the time!!!!

So any way today was the day of the 5k.  I was thinking to myself that if I could do it in 90 min. I would be happy……..but……..I did it in 51.09 min!!!!!!!!!!!!  I am so proud of myself, and so grateful to my daughter!!!  She is an amazing person!!!  She is in amazing shape!!!  She has always been able to run and I know she would have signed up for the 10k run if I had of said no to doing the walk!  She stayed beside me all the way and we walked across the finish line together!!

Holly you are my hero!!!

Here we are waiting for the race to start.  There were over 5000 people taking part.
