Happy Wednesday

Hi Guys,

I can't believe how much time has passed since I last posted, sorry... I hope you are all enjoying the summer weather, relaxing, stamping and having fun.

My daughter the Dr., has moved back to Toronto from Windsor and is living with us (love it) for a few months 'till she can find a place to live. I hope she takes her time and stays with us this year and saves her money, so she can buy a condo or town house. I love having her home again, she is so much fun to be with, and she is a great stamper to boot.

I did my first Demo at Pointers Scrapbooking store and want to thank everyone for coming out and supporting me. It was great to see all of you.

I am so excited that my new Copic Markers came last week and my Flourishes stamps came the same day. I really haven't shopped on line much, as I am a feelie touchie kind of person, but Man oh Man is it ever easy and fun to shop on line with just a push of a button. I am hooked (where have I been).

All of my other purchases should be arriving in the next couple of weeks and then there will be no excuses for not posting a few cards a week. I am slowly getting my mojo back, I think.

I redesigned an old card of mine with a Penny Black flower stamp in black Versafine ink, and Chalked around the flower with a cotton ball using blue chalk. I then edged the card stock with a black marker. I used Stampin'Up patterned paper in Baja Breez, and embossed the white card stock with Sizzix dot embossing folder. I also used EK success scallop border punch on the bottom of the black layer. The sentiment is Stampin'Up.

I am off to Montreal for a few days and will be back on Sunday, and hopefully I will have another card for you on Monday.

Have a great weekend.

Thanks for stopping by, I would love to hear from you.

Hey Nicky! Glad to see your mojo coming back. I've been checking your blog often in hopes of this day! For the layout impaired like myself I always look to you for inspiration!

Hi Nicky:

Hey Nicky!!
Glad you're getting your fingers all inky and getting those juices flowing again. My juices don't have time to stop but i have a little more free time now to hope around on the blogs and see what you all have going on. I dropped MFT a couple weeks ago... I was getting too stressed with the continuous card making and dirty house! lol Love the Penny Black, watch that online shopping!! *wink* it's soooo easy and fun!

St├ęphanie B. said...

What a nice surprise to see something new on your page!! I agree with you as web shopping is addicting ...careful, you might not be able to resist getting more and more new goodies!! See you soon.
PS: Very elegant card ...reminds me of someone's style ...maybe a teacher of mine!
