Let’s Pawty

Hello folks!  Ready for spring?  Today as I type this out, it is still freezing outside, but I have my window open in my studio and am listening to the beautiful song of the birds.  It cries, “spring is around the corner.”  I live in an apartment where it is 25 degrees C so an open window is welcome.

As you can see, I’ve been busy pounding out the cards and made a birthday set using Technique Junkie’s Let’s Pawty stamp set.  On the inside of my card I have, “Let’s Party” stamped out.  Cute for the dog-lover.

You can receive this stamp at 10% off if you use my code.

As a little surprise, Pat is offering a free stamp called, “wildly capable” with any  $30 purchase before taxes and delivery.

Paper colours used:

Blackberry Bliss, Pumpkin Pie, Lemon Lime Twise, Early Espresso, Island Indigo

You’re in my Prayers

 

Good day folks! I’m mixing things up a bit and have a sympathy card for you.  Before I describe it, I’d like to let you know that you can get 10% off of these, and any stamps or product, at 10% off just by using TJ10Beth.

I have a coworker that lost her father and our department is getting a fruit basket.  This card is going to be wrapped up with the fruit and I think it will brighten their day.

Hooray it’s your birthday

Hello folks, I recently went to a Stampn Up cardmaking party and this is one of the cards we made.  It went to a very special cousin on her 50th birthday.  We celebrated at the Keg and went back to party at her house.  It was a lot of fun.

Have a nice weekend.

Love What You Do

Hello folks!  Yipee, it’s the weekend.  This card was made at a Stampin Up! class, and the sentiment is fitting for me today because I am going wedding dress shopping for myself with three of my best friends.  We are road tripping 100 km away and I’m so excited.  I have no idea what style of dress I will buy.  After looking on the website of the store I want to go to, I’m more confused, but I’m sure my friends will point me in the right direction.  Oddly enough, the dress I really want is on sale on-line and is the same colour as the light beige in the background of my card.  What’s stopping me from buying it you ask?  Well, I don’t buy much on-line and certainly not clothes because they might not fit and I don’t want the hassle of returning it.  If I buy on-line, it’s stamp related–LOL.

08-18-18 isn’t far away, so I better act fast.  Wedding reception invitations have been sent out and thank you cards are made.  Meal is figured out and will be made by friends and myself.  Vera, the hostess of my wedding reception is a fabulous cook and has everything under control.  I’m a wreck and a worrier and she’s as cool as a cucumber as hosting parties for 40 people is nothing to her as she does it several times a year.

So, wish me luck today–I’ll need it.

I’m a Winner

 

Hi Folks!  Would you believe I won back-to-back challenges at Impression Obsession?  I had $50 to spend and this is what I bought with my winnings, and a little bit extra money.  I never tire of cupcakes and went crazy for them.  The remainder of what you see were items that enticed me to buy from the bloghop I followed to get my winnings.  Can’t wait to break into all of them.

Technique Junkies Monthly Challenge – Transitional Ombre

Hello fellow stampers and fellow Technique Junkies.

This month’s new challenge is called Transitional Ombre and is such an easy technique that I hope to see a lot of participants for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate.

The stamp I used is called Besties and reminds me of the fun I had in the water this summer.  Recently, I dipped my toes in the Atlantic ocean.  I noticed the cold didn’t bother the children who were having fun in the waves, while us adults were less brave and sat and watched the world go by.

You can get 10% off your order by using code TJ10Beth.

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by.

Vacation, Part 2

We toured the original beer brewery of Alexander Keith’s, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and was one of the highlights of the trip.  I forgot how homesick I was for Halifax, and Nova Scotia in general.  I wish it were possible to move back.

The biggest highlight of our trip was visiting Oak Island, Nova Scotia, where The Curse of Oak Island is filmed for A&E.  This realistic show is seen in 58 countries and is the #1 show on Tuesday nights, beating out sports.  For those who don’t know the story, it is said major treasure is buried on Oak Island and since the mid 1900’s, men have long excavated the area in the hope that they can recover what is buried.  It’s a show that Al and I have been watching since it started four years ago with the cast seen in this poster.  We saw many of the cast members on the day of our tour.

Our guide was Charles Barkhouse, one of the cast members of the TV show.

This is the swamp that was emptied out in search of the gold.

This is the 10X borehole where divers were sent down to find the treasure, but the silt was so thick, the divers could not see their hand in front of their face.

I’m curious, do you watch the show?
