Hi Everyone,

Spring is finally in the air and Mother's Day is this Sunday. I received some gorgeous pearlized card stock in the prettiest pastel colours from Paper-Garden and was invited to join their Mother's Day challenge. Please go and check out their site for a variety of beautiful card stock.

Both the Neenah Classic white and green card stock are from Paper-Garden . The stamp is from Penny Black. I used Tombow markers and coloured the stamp , spritzed water and stamped. I don't know if you can see but I also glittered the leaves.

I would love to hear from you. Hope you like the card.

Here I go again

I know it has been a long time since I blogged, but life just got in the way. I am back  and exited to post again . I have quite a few cards to share with you, and I will start with these 4 cards for today. It finally feels like spring here in Toronto, and what better way to start blogging but with flowers and butterflies.

The 2 cards using the pink and red flowers are from one of my favourite companies called Altenew.
The pink flowers are called painted flowers and are 3 step stamping. The red flower card is called Persian Motif, and I water coloured it. I just love these 2 sets and have a few ideas that I would like to try out with them.

The blue card is a one layer card that I did using a mask, and sponged in with Broken China Distress Ink. The stripe stamp is from Papertrey Ink. The fourth card is using a Penny Black stamp, and I coloured it in with Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits.

I really hope you like the cards and I will blog again in a few days. I would love to hear from you, so please leave a comment.

I'm Baaaaack!!!!!

I know that it has been  a long time since I last blogged, but I am back, more energized and I have lots of cards to share with you.

In the last year, I have renovated my bathrooms, which took much longer than anticipated, spent lots of time this summer with my three gorgeous grand-daughters and my retired wonderful husband, designing cards for, and  teaching my classes.

Here is a card I would like to share with you that is from my "Black and White with a Hint of Colour" class. I used an Impression Obsession lace background stamp, made up the bow shape, and used the retro flowers to add the colour. I used glitter here and there to finish it off.

I also used the Hero Arts Unicorn white ink which I love. I really hope you can see the detail of the lace stamp and how crisp and sharp the white ink shows up.

Hope you like it. I promise to post more cards this week.

I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment.

My Birthday Crop

Hi everyone,
I would like to share some pictures from my all-day Birthday Crop, that Heidi and Simon, the owners of Pointer Scrapbooking store where I teach, hosted for me. I was so very much spoiled with birthday cake, cup cakes, gorgeous cards and gifts. Thanks so much to everyone who came, and, for all of the cards and gifts. I especially want to thank Heidi and Simon for being such great hosts, and Heidi for making me a fabulous Copic Marker holder. I just love it!  You can see it in the picture along with some of the cards I received.

Thanks again to everyone who showed up and helped make my birthday so very special.

I will post one of my cards in a few days

Hello again

Hi everyone,

I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted. To make this short,  I went on a cruise on the Allure of the Seas, the largest cruise ship in the world (picture a seventeen story floating hotel with more than 10,000 passengers and crew), and then onto Florida to spend some time with my sister. I had a fabulous time.  When I returned home, I baby-sat my two older grand-daughters for a few days, and then renovated my two upstairs bathrooms (that took a month; wow, what a mess), but the end results are amazing. I absolutely just love how it turned out. I then had to get ready for Scrapfest, where I designed and packaged my "make and take"; designed my new classes for April, May and June, and finally, here I am. Time just flew by.

My email has changed to so put me in your address book.

Simon, owner of Pointers Scrapbooking store, has done it again. He's launched the cutest characters from Dreamerland designs, and I just love them. They are exclusive to Pointers, and I am teaching a class called "New Stamps, New Cards" featuring these adorable little girls. So if you are in the Toronto area, I would love to see you.

I'm using the ballerina image on the card I'm posting. I had so much fun designing her, especially because this is the card I gave my oldest granddaughter Maya for her 7th Birthday. She takes ballet and has to wear her long hair in a bun, and it really reminded me of her. I wanted the card to have some dimension so I added ribbon for the tutu. I used Cheerylyn flourish die, and stamped a script over it with pink ink. I am so happy with how she turned out, and Maya just loved it.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I would love to hear from you, so leave me a message and say hi. I will be back in a few days with more cards.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi Everyone,

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you all had a fabulous day and had a chance to spend time with your loved ones.

I know it has been awhile since I last posted, but beside being busy with preparing classes, babysitting and teaching, I have also had trouble with my new laptop. I might have to change my email addy as of the 16th to and hope that everything goes smoothly.

If you guys are in the Toronto area and would like to attend one or any of my three classes; "Colouring Class", "Share Your Love Class" and "Card Holder and Four Cards Class", and I also give you a template for making a square envelope to match the cards. If you want to register email Heidi at

The card I posted is embossed with a Cuttlebug Heart Embossing Folder, Hero Arts Large Friends Background stamp with Versa Fine Onyx black ink, and, I used lots of glitter all around the heart. I free-hand drew the heart and made myself a template which I then traced onto the stamped background, and cut it out. I hope you like it.

I would love to hear from you, so let me know that you have stopped by. I am going to post again in a couple of days so stay tuned.

Much love,
