Here is a quick card I pulled together using the CTMH September SOTM and this week's Unscripted Sketches sketch. The colours were inspired by the JRL Colour-Me-Monday combination; Red, White and Blue revisited.
This stamp set reminds me of the outdoors with all the dandelion fluff's blowing in the breeze - I just loved blowing all the fluff off the weeds as a kid and now my boys love it too! This colour combo reminds me of fall, and I can't wait for autumn to come around - it is my favourite time of the year! Until then, be sure to check out the Autumn/Winter idea book for all the new CTMH products!

By the way, the boys had a blast riding their bikes/scooters through the puddle and posed for pictures for me too - it was a fun time for all of us LOL!
Thanks for stopping by!

It is my wonderful husbands birthday tomorrow, so I pulled this card together just for him! I find it so hard to find masculine images and I really didn't want to make him another birthday card with a cake on it... so here is my creation. All the supplies are from CTMH
Let me know what you think - I'd just love it if you'd leave a comment!

I LOVE to create paper artwork; scrapbook pages, hand made cards, gift items etc... but a lot of the time, life gets in the way (read between the lines - kids, work, house chores LOL) and my paper creations get pushed to the side. I am hoping that by starting this blog, I will hold my self accountable to my paper hobby and be sure to create at least one card or scrapbook layout per week to showcase here!
I have a few items that I have created in the past few weeks to start off, I'll dig out pictures of my favourite paper art and post those here in the next little while too!
Please be sure to stop by and visit again soon - and be sure to leave a comment now and then to keep me encouraged LOL!
