After I had my cardinal put together I made this card for him using the retired set, Peaceful Wishes. I cut the pinecones out and used a dimensional on the front one. I also used my :Dazzling Crystal on the cones.

This morning we had a beautiful sunrise that inspired this card. The trees glitter and glisten. I made Dazzling Crystal, with a 1/2 bottle of crystal effect and 3/4 container of DD glitter. Just remember to shake the bottle well before use as the glitter settles to the bottom. I have been using this on almost everything I've made lately. Appling glitter this way eliminated having glitter everywhere.

Christmas is coming, so that means it's time to start thinking about Christmas cards. I am offering a Christmas card camp again this year on Nov 1st at my place( 3341 McConachie Ck Rd).
These are the designs we will be making. I will have everything pre-cut, all you have to do is stamp and assemble the cards. There will be 4 each of the 5 designs for a total of 20 cards, envelopes included. We will start at 1:00 and should finish around 4:30. The cost is $40. Pre-registry by Oct 25th is a must so I can have everything cut and ready to stamp. You can phone or email me to register.

I finally took time to stamp tonight. Hubby is gone for the weekend fishing and I decided that the unplanted flower beds can wait till tomorrow. The last 2 weekends I was babysitting 2 of the grandkids ages 3 and 6 so stamping didn't happen.
Splitcoast had the tutorial for this card this wek. I thought it looked very interesting. It is actually quite easy to do. I plan to make another one for our friends 25th aniversary.
If you live near me and would like to learn how to make this card, contact me and book a workshop and ask for the double pocket card. I will demonstrate it for you and your friends.

I used the piercing tool for the edge of the carousel note, and colored my image with the WWC and an aqua painter.
The greenhouse is very busy now but hopfully I'll have an update by next Sunday.

I ordered the carousel Notes and got them on Tuesday. Tonight I finally had a bit of time to play with them. I didn't have a lot time to play so had to come up with something that was quick and easy. This is what I came up with. Hopefully in the next few days I can play again and try something a little more elaborate.

Today I wanted something to remind me that spring is REALLY coming. It has been cold (-13C)and windy. This is what I came up with. My card is 8 1/2 x 3 1/2. I used Carte Postale for the flowers and the chickadee is from Spring Song. I stamped the flowers with pretty in Pink and then used my markers to color the leaves and stems

Well look no further. You can have any one of SU's 48 colors plus the in colors. This ablum started out as natural linen album, then colored with pumpkin pie. Mix equal amounts of reinker and water in a bowl. Take your ablum apart and lay it flat and use a sponge to apply the color. Let dry and sponge again to make sure the color is even. For this 12 x12 album we used 3 reinkers. We are coloring another one Blue Bayou and it is going to need 4 reinkers. It seems the darker the color the more reinker it takes. I have also colored one with perfect plum
