Summer Break...

It's been very quiet around here hasn't it?

And it will get more quiet before the posting/blogging 'noise' resumes. I'm taking a month off and will be back in July!

Enjoy your summer or winter!

Sister Friends

Sisters can be such fun friends! I'm thankful for my Sister-Friends!

It took several tries, but in the end we had a picture or two for the photo album!



I used the same kit for my 'First Steps' page which I submitted to the Template Challenge at Gingerscraps.







Finally - I made my LO into a Quick Page for you. It as been a while since I offered a Quick Page. Let me know if you prefer QP's or overlays so I know for future freebies ;-)

What is a Home Without a Cat?

This was a fun one to make. I don't know many people who can stick to getting just one cat. But I guess it is worth a try, right? After all they do add that special touch to make a house a home. And I am not referring to the fur!

This card is for folks who finally got a cat after moving into a new home. Question is - how long will there be just one cat. That is what I want to know...

I tried to imitate the lettering used on the stamp, so it looks somewhat similar, and for the front of the card I trimmed a single cat image from one of the larger stamps.




And inside...a more realistic expectation. The 'current' cat is a ginger and has top spot on the head. For now anyway. I think the recipients will get the idea.




I stamped the cat prints on the edge of the envelope for a fun touch.




This is the set I used. I got mine at my local Michaels store, but also found it on Amazon.



I'm submitting this one to the Art Impressions 'House & Home' challenge. Do take a look at the challenge and play along. Ai has some great new images in the store!

Happy Birthday Gogo!

Celebrating a friend's birthday. This page is especially poignant as our dear Gogo passed away recently. RIP...you are missed!




I used Cathy Krenek's "It's Your Birthday" Bundle for my page. It is such a bright, happy and colourful kit!

Colouring Pages - Violets

And for February we have violets! I used 'African Violets' for my inspiration. These little plants are so easy to grow and are so very pretty! They have been a favourite of mine for many years.

I have not yet painted my copy of these, but I did make a start with digital colouring. I think it will be very pretty when done!



The download includes 2 different pages. One is just flowers while the other has leaves as well.






Enjoy and feedback is welcome and appreciated!

And just as a matter of interest - this is what I did with one of the carnation colouring pages for January - still available HERE. I'm planning on using some of the other page's images in an art journal...
