As the weather starts to change and leaves start to fall off the trees, I feel its to soon to welcome fall into my world. So to keep me balanced and genitally roll into fall slowly I designed a card with more of a spring/summer feel to it.

So for today's card I used bright colours of red, yellow and purple with ribbons and embossing and those wonderful Silver Flourish Designer Frames. And here is today's card!

It is Christmas Time in the Studio!

It's December Here in the Studio!

So last Thursday I was honoured to be a presenter at our annual Holiday Hoopla. This event happens after the release of the holiday Stampin Up catalogue. First we have a little chat about what is wonderful with the catalogue, (Hello everything!) a quick review of the make-and-takes and then it is demo booth time. 

Demo Booth is so much fun you have 10 mins to show ya stuff and show how simple it is to showcase 3D items. For my demo booth I did a folded panels that open to form a star with these adorable danglers so friggen cute and so easy to create. Great as a little gift or for a table display (which I am working on for this year, creating one 6" x 6" plus some other secret things that will be coming soon)

6" x 3" folded and tied with a matching ribbon.

It takes LOVE

This past May my Dad passed away from brain cancer. He was such a wonderful man who would do anything for anyone. Who loved his family, his friends and his church. 
During his final weeks Dad was admitted into the hospital, though he wanted to pass at home, the care he required was more than we could handle.
His time there was long with many struggles but he was so loved and cared for by both the Dr and the nurses that when we couldn't be there we knew that he was loved.
As a thank you to the nurses I created this t-shirt letting them know that we appreciated everything that they could do for our Dad and that it was very appreciated.
I am also offering this for sale $36.00 including taxes plus shipping, with portion going to a scholarship in my Dad's name to the Nursing program at Algonquin College.
