Big Heart

Recently a friend of mine dropped off a large bag of Tonka trucks for my boys to play with outside. These aren't your regular plastic kind that you would find in the stores these days, either. They used to be her son's toys and they are the GOOD kind. The metal kind. Let me just say, my kids were thrilled!

Mom was pretty thrilled too. They can play outside for hours with those wonderful trucks. I knew the perfect set to use to make her a nice card to say thanks. Toy Truck Ants from Doodle Pantry is the best, don't you think? I thought it was perfect for this! 

Off to go play outside with the kids! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Flying By

Summer is just flying by, isn't it? Before too long the kids will be back in school. I need to start getting things ready for their return to school - I haven't purchased any of the zillion supplies they need for school to start back up (and they didn't even hardly use them all last year, either - good thing I saved them!) I am sure I will get to it some time. 

I thought this new set from Doodle Pantry was really fun and wanted to make a card with it. I am not the greatest at making masculine cards, but I love how the colours pop on this one at least!

Flying Hi is free with purchase until the 24th, so go and shop so you can snag this gem!

Do  you like boating? I haven't been on a boat in a very long time. I do enjoy it, but usually don't get to go out very much. They don't make life jackets for fatties like me! Ah well. Instead I can make cute cards about little people who like boating.

I went with the nautical colours for this one. It was kind of fun! Loved using the little crochet flowers my sister made for me. This image is from Whimsie Doodles. They're pretty cute, don't you think?

Figured I would enter this into a few challenges. Check out Crafts Galore Encore, and the Crafty Bloggers Network

Have a great day!

My friends have had me start watching Sherlock again. There's just something about that show! I kind of like it. I really enjoyed the movies, as well. I am going to have to watch them again! Nothing like a good investigation!

Sometimes I just like to make my hubby a card, just for being him. I kind of love him a lot, you know? Thought this one was cute and haven't used it in awhile! The Detective Sheep set from Doodle Pantry is just superb, don't you think?

Have a great day!

Happy Camper

It's August! Summer is pretty much half way over now! I know quite a few of the children living in the States will be back to school this month, but we will have a lot of time left here - one month! Summer time is so wonderful because the kids are home and we get to do all kinds of fun things together!

Doodle Pantry knows all about summer, there are TONS of awesome sets that are summer inspired. Here is a new one called On The Road that I just had to use!

Last month, we had a tropical storm roll through. It knocked out our power for six days because a lot of trees came down all over the city. Some people had to wait almost two weeks for power! It was horrible. We are fortunate that we hardly ever are affected by the tropical storms since we are more in the mainland area, but I guess it was our turn! We went over to a friend's house who had power and they let us sleep in their camper. It was awesome! The kids had a great time and we totally enjoyed ourselves.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Don't forget to check out ALL the awesome new sets at Doodle Pantry! There is a sale on right now, so you want to check that out!

Burn for You

Is it hot enough for you? Not too long ago we had a heat pump installed. It is AMAZING! It was 32 C outside the house, and 38C inside. AAAH! Way too hot...I even passed out from the heat one night. I was soooo happy to be cooler! It is wonderful. I was totally ON FIRE before that!

Speaking of which, this card is made with the Heart on Fire set from Doodle Pantry. It is typically used around Valentine's Day but hey, it's hot and I was inspired! 

Hope you are enjoying this summer heat! 

Have a great day!

Just a fun post today with this super colourful card. I loved the Clown Birdie from Doodle Pantry and had never made a card with it yet. But, I am not 100% in love with it. It is missing something! I added some red chipboard and I liked that, but it's still missing....something! you think it needs something else? What would you add?
