Crafting retreat

Hey fellow crafters, I am planning a crafting retreat with my downline Rosalyn. Just curious as to which month would be better for you? October or November. This event will be held locally here in Prince George at a local hotel. We will also be securing a few rooms for those that would like to not have to drive home late at night.

You can email me at or call me at 250 649 0902 if you are interested in attending and being placed on my contact list when we have the event planned.

Wednesday and its Borderline Buddies time!

Hey so I'm now back from vacation. Spent ten days with my hunny and my daughter. We travelled from Prince George BC to Nanaimo BC. We made a stop in Surrey to visit with my brother Brad, my Auntie and Uncle, and my girlfriend Andi who had some very important news to share. She is pregnant! We (ok I) did some shopping at my old haunts. Oh ya this crafter is born/raised down there in the Surrey area. Man oh man has it changed since the last time I had been there! Kinda sad, to see the farmland being turned into houses. Once we got on the boat (as my daughter was calling it) we made our base in Nanaimo. The reason why we were there is because my cousin Shannon McGarrigle was getting married. We spent a day down in Victoria as well to visit with some of my husbands friends/family. I got to spend a day at the ocean with my bff from highschool Jackie and her muchkins, though they are not munchkins anymore : ( this is what happens when you yourself start having children later in life. Oh well, moving on.

So this weeks challenge was from Susan. Her Challenge is: Anything Christmas. So since I have not received my FREE Stamps!! yes I earned 2 FREE stamp sets for working on challenges from Stampin' Up! They actually should be here tomorrow. Ask me how you too can earn FREE Stamps! 

Anyways I used this stamp set that I purchased last winter, and even though it was discontinued, Stampin' Up! brought it back for this years Holiday catalog. Don't have a Holiday catalog yet? Ya me neither. I will be getting one here shortly for my self, if you would like me to mail one to you or I can drop one off to you later in August/September.

This card I cased from Kim Ryden. It is clean and simple, very easy to make oh all of your Christmas cards in a few short hours.

Items used:

Stamp set: Endless Wishes
Cardstock: Whisper White
Ink: Coastal Cabana, Smokey Slate, Night of Navy
Extras: Rhinestones.

Thanks for lookin' and have a Stampin' Day!

Borderline buddies

Yep you guessed that its Wednesday again.
This week's challenge is mine. My challenge was gift giving. So anything like bags/tags/boxes/note cards/gift card holders. I needed to make a cute gift card holder for my girlfriend Andrea who moved from Prince George and is now living in Mission BC. I just got to see her and she is five months PREGNANT!! I got her a gift card to spend on her new little bean. She isn't sure yet of the sex of her new baby but should very soon. Happy shopping Andi!

I had this mostly made before we left, so all I needed to do was to add some stamping and embellishments to it. I didn't write down all the product that I did use as I am still on holidays while I make this post. A few of the times were: Envelope punch board, paper trimmer, snail, sticky strip, and dimensionals.

Thanks for lookin' and have a stampin' day!

Its Wednesday! Borderline buddies time

Happy Wednesday. I am going to get this posted before Susan can tell me I forgot : ) I am on my holidays right now. My view from the table I'm sitting at includes the ocean, and some mountains. I am on the Queen Of Alberni BC ferry from the lower mainland to Vancouver Island BC. We are spending time in both the Victoria and Nanaimo areas, as well as travelling up to see my other very good bff Jackie and her family in Port Alberni. Moving on to BORDERLINE BUDDIES.

 This week's challenge was from Susan. Her challenge was to use some of our wonderful Designer Series Paper, that is on sale this month, purchase three (3) packages and get one (1) FREE. To see what Susan has created head on over to her blog at:
