A Long Due Post........

It has been awhile since I have posted.

I have been finding it hard to be overly creative as
of late. My last post, June 17th, was EXACTLY a 
week before I found out my mother has breast cancer.

Cancer is not a rarity in my family, in fact, I pretty much
know my fate, it is just a matter of when. 
For some reason {because my mother was turning 70} 
I thought she was in the safe zone.

Silly me, being in the medical profession, I knew
that was not the case but I was hopeful. 

You never want to see your mother go through 
something like this. 

My dad is also a survivor of cancer and I know
my mom will also fight it because she has
her family in her corner fighting with her. 

Hopefully, once everything has settled down
a bit and we find out what the next steps are
{she is currently healing from her 2nd surgery}
I can join the ranks of creating and posting again....

Birthday Wishes For a Coworker... =)

It's feels good to be posting again....

Today's make is for a coworker who
has just joined our team over the last month.

As many of you are aware, I make
birthday cards for all my co-workers.

This card is using the Saturated Canary
image. This little cutie was part of a digi 
pack that is currently available.
Her name is Sweetheart!

This is quite a simple card but that seems
to be my type as of late. I am really liking
the clean and simple lines.

For the sentiment, I used Stampendous's glitter
embossing powder.

Happy Birthday to My Nephew With Kenny K.. =)

So it's my nephew's birthday today!

I can not believe that he is 11 years old,
where does the time go?

I had a hard time finding the perfect digital
image to use for his card. He is a sports
fanatic! He plays on his LAX and hockey rep teams.

I am certainly super proud to call him my nephew!

The image I used was from Kenny K.
It is called Anime Hockey.

I chose to ink it up in his team colours
so it is more personalized.

The sentiment for this card was made
by me on my computer.

OMG! I made a couple of cards....... =)

So I have truly been lazy, I don't know how 
quite to explain it but the MOJO has 
been sucked right out of me!

I have no desire to make cards
and this really hurts me because I love making them.

I did manage to get a couple done for my
cousin(s) birthdays. One is from my mom's side of the
family and the other is from my dad's side.

So that means that they are very similar, 
but cute none the less.....

These images are some oldies from CC All That Scraps.
Their names are Birthday Boy and Cupcake Girl.

Right before they went postal, I 
decided to add Glossy Accents to the balloons
and the top of the cupcake to add some depth.....

I really hope you enjoyed these cards.

I will try my hardest to get my butt in gear and 
post some more creations.

Pocket Letter Pals...... SO MUCH FUN!!!

I am so excited to share with you my very
first completed PLP or Pocket Letter Pen-pal.

It is all the latest rage and let me tell you these
are SO MUCH FUN TO MAKE.......

I came across it surfing YouTube, the creator, Janette Lane
came up with this idea as a new way to exchange
interesting creative stuff with pen-pals from all
over the world. 

You can do themes if you would like... Me, personally 
I am a huge fan of Anything Goes. It allows
me to create from my personality and I love that....

You can join here, it is free and it is FUN!

This is a great way to use up scraps of paper 
you have lying around OR if you are like
me and have too much paper and there is not enough 
 time in this universe to use it all up.

So basically you use the 9 pocket trading card
protector sheets and you fill them with whatever you want. 
Being that this is my first one, I am thinking I will keep this one
to start my binder off with..... I have 3 more on the go right now.
I also have 3 partners that I am trading with.

This is a really unique way to send little goodies to
your swap partner. They can choose to use the stuff OR
you can keep it just like it is and store it in
a regular binder, which I think is what I want to do.

This is a picture of the back and of the goodies that
are put in the protecter. So as you can see, I have shaker stuff, 
stickers labels, die cuts, wash tape, twine, button accents 
and the most important, TEA!

I used Gold and Glitter tea from David's.

You also should include a letter to your pen-pal
and an About Me section, which is the centre.
I have listed 5 things about me.

I really hope you enjoyed this and I hope you
join us over at PLP. Who knows, maybe we can
become pen-pals!
