and if you go visit there challenge page the cut cupcake is there for the taking so hop on board and lets see what you can do with it…HERE
TFL my card I used the cupcake and painted the image with Prisma Pencils…embossed the tin foil with a Sizzix/SU folder called basket weave..pop dotted the image and walla my super hero is ready for some fun…
Awe did I search or what for this…..so many different kinds of folds I finally came across one called a Canary Butterfly Pop-up and the directions can be found HERE…I just love how it opens up and the star pops off the page…. TFL and stop by Cropstop HERE and get in on this weeks challenge before it is over
Well we had some really cute clip art to work with and HERE is the link to see them all…Martha asks what is our favourite season…man that was hard cause I have 2…Spring and Fall…I chose spring though since it is a time of renewed life from our cold Canadian weather…we celebrate 4 seasons and all are just as amazing as the other…
On my card I used mauve Card stock.. Stampin-Up corner punch…I believe it is the Iron handle but forgive me if its not…the owl is so cut from My Grafico clip art by Designer: JW Illustrations…I used some diamond stickles on it and mounted it with a pop dot…the sentiment also come from Stampin-Up spring collection that I have had for a very long time…
So join us at Martha’s Clear it Out Tuesday challenge this week and show us what you can do…cya there…& TFL…

Well we all have birthdays some we like and some we don’t….my 60th was a keeper man it ran for a whole week…started with my son giving me a new phone…then on the day he took the family out for dinner to the Mandarin Restaurant (Chinese food) then on Sunday, like yesterday… my daughter rented a hall for a some friends and family to come help celebrate. And celebrate we did…lots of fun was had …I even had a cry..why you might ask well a lady who runs the Stampin Canada web site was invited and I was under the impression she couldn't make it so was I looking for her NOOOooo!!!!…all of a sudden 2 girls came in and said we have a surprise guest with us… well holy moly it was her the infamous Wenchie from Winnipeg...and that folks brought tears to my eyes…We had people from Winnipeg,,,Hamilton…Burlington…Woodstock… Thorold…St. Catharines…Niagara Falls…it was all of Southern Ontario crafting friends… family and close friend's…My 2 good friends Lou-Anne and Kathy helped to bring all this together for my special day…I thank them very much…my Bible study gals did a great gift of also helping with setting up and organizing things as well…what a wonderful group effort done by all…we had a pot luck dinner…. as for me at 60 what do you buy but an old gal …other then huge underwear and nighties/socks LOL…So I had asked for fellowship with friends and family and FOOD,that was gift enough for me… for a long time I have wanted those Prisma pencils and have saved and saved and of course things happen and the money dwindles and ya still save cause I know eventually I was getting them...Well guess the word got out because I received so many gift certificates for Michaels that I coulda bought 2 sets of 132 with all the 50% discount coupons I got with them….Was I shocked or what…so I bought 2 circle punches along with the money and I still have 70 plus dollars to spend @ Michaels…I was one spoiled but much appreciated lady that day…
I also got 2 gift certificates for Wal-Mart and I used them to get a wonderful phone cover for that new phone I don't wanna ruin it with dropping…and money still to spend there…as well a wonderful gal and her girls gave me a gift card for another fave restaurant of ours and its enough to take out the whole family…
Like I said spoiled spoiled spoiled…
THANKS EVERYONE FOR HELPING ME SPEND THE BEST BIRTHDAY EVER…
As you can see by the photos I went shopping LOL
Wenchie…Donna….me…Lynne…Jen and daughter Ally & Barb…besides gift cards I also received so other awesome gifts from friends…and a bag of as she called it stuff from Donna… anybody need ribbon I got lots thanks Donna for the loot bag it was awesome..

The title says it all… our young man has turned 18 today… this is also the day and date… imagine that for such a special turn in ones life…I had made a card for this ages ago and danged if I could find that sucker which in turn led me to make this darling one last night… and I must say I am quite pleased with it..
I used silver Card Stock and embossed it with a Cuttle Bug folder that says Happy Birthday all over it…then to my advantage Gina “K” TV was giving away some free decorative paper to play with and that was perfect for the number 18 which I used My Cricut to cut it out and weld together..and on the off stripe I used diamond stickles to give it that wow affect…not bad for a boys/mans card for a birthday…TFL and be blessed always
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SON
TFL and sharing his special day today with us…<((><

The lace edge to create the doily affect is from Martha's Etsy shop HERE
I missed a few weeks for the challenges which I so love, due to some surgery I recently had... but I'm back creating and just loving every moment of it TFL
For now, let's move on to CHALLENGE #105. The theme was chosen by our awesome TALENT, Sue Cooper, from ScoopyStuff. aka: Scoopy! She wants to see lots of ***Sparkle on your Christmas Creations*** That should be very easy to do! :)
Just remember to use a House-Mouse, Happy Hoppers or Gruffies image.
This is my 2nd House Mouse challenge and thought outside the traditional box of Christmas..all I could think of was mint and chocolate…and then I remembered this image …well why not have those cute little creatures savour the aroma of a chocolate-mint tea just right for the holidays…in fact why wait think I’ll have one right after I post this…TFL
Stop by the challenge blog HERE and lets see your entry soon…
I used purple glitter and white liquid pear for the tea pot…coloured my image with Crayola pencils and blended with OMS I used a Martha Stewart lacy edge punch in red and yellow…and of course this sweet HM image…
