Birthday cake

So most years for my birthday I do not have a birthday cake.
I love cake but wont eat it so we just don't get one.
This year Butt be dammed I wanted cake so we had two lol.
Granted I didn't actually eat two cakes but I did have two pieces and they were soooo good it was wrong.
Now no more cake.
Maybe next year though just because I think turning 40 will deserve cake and an anti depressent.

I recently found this digi from
I love how cheeky she is.

Eight Months till Christmas Blog Hop!!!

Welcome can you believe thats its only eight months till Christmas.
I was sitting in my living room this afternoon and was picturing where I could put up a second Christmas tree this year.
Since I still have to get through flip flop season before my husband even wants to discuss a second Christmas tree , I will make Christmas cards to get my fix.
This months Christmas Blog Hop Theme is animals.
This was a lot of fun for me since I primarily use people images.
Again thanks to the ladies of the Christmas Blog for inviting me to join in on the fun!!

If you have arrived here from the talented Sallys blog then you are in the right place. If you happened to stop by for a visit, great! I am so glad you are here...but please start at creative Shari'sblog so you can enjoy all the beautiful cards/projects everyone has made. At the bottom of this post I will put the entire blog hop order for you to follow.

Wee stamps Christmas Bunny

I just love the Wee Stamps Christmas Bunny. He looks so happy up there on top of all those Christmas Presents. 
I coloured him up with copics and used some cute little sticky buttons that I found at our local dollar store.
Punched out some snowflakes and glittered the tips up with my spica glitter pen and added a rinestone in the centre for extra sparkle. 
The papers are from my Recollections Blue Christmas 6x6 pack.
I love the blue/pink colour combo when I make cards that have snow.

I just fell in love with this little guy because this is what my husband looks like every year putting up our lights.
Again I coloured him up with copics and chalked the edges in red. Used a sentiment from my Kraftin Kimmie Christmas sentiment pack.
The papers are from Bo Bunnys Mistletoe collection and the rhinestones I used where actually in my stocking this year from Santa.
Again Thanks for stopping by and helping us count down to Christmas.
Hugs and Merry Early Christmas

April Feels Like A Blur

This month has continued whizzing by.
Work and the kids and even my 39th Birthday have kept me busy.
My Bald Man and the kids took me out for fish and chips ( a real treat as I don't eat anything fried )
The restaurant is right down on the ocean so the view was stunning despite the rain.
My kids were even smiling at the same time.
Happy kids but teenagers don't always like to be seen smiling when out in public with their parents.
Today sun is shining  for which I am extremely greatful.
My wee little Chihuahuas are soaking up the rays on the porch as I type.
They are barking a lot today from the porch which keeps me hoping up to see why.
We have a grumpy Cougar in the area.
Where we live we have Cougars out and about alot but for the most part they stay far away from people.
Unfortunately this one doesnt .
Thats one of the perks and pitfalls about living out of the city.
You get to enjoy nature but you also have to always be aware and know the rules.
Today I got to work on a couple more mothers Day cards that I have had people order.

This little Tilda from Magnolia stamps was my first ever stamp purchase

I coloured her up with Copics and the papers I used were from a pad that I found at winners, the company is called Cloisonne. The paper almost feels like wall paper.

Wee stamps I love you Slow Much

I know I used her on my last Blog Post but I just love her. She is just adorable and alot of fun to colour. The papers are also from the same pack I found at Winners.

Hope your all having a great week so far and hope you have sunshine to enjoy as well.
Thanks for visiting

Hugs Sandy

Wow!! Seems like Forever!

Holy Cow!!
Seems like forever since I had time to blog and visit all the Blogs I follow.
Here in Sooke the weather is grey and rainy but I will take it.
Too many family and friends are reporting snow in other places in Canada.
The rain just means I will wait a bit still before I start my flower gardens.
Some good comes from the rain today  I actually got into my craft room.
In honour of Mothers day just around the corner I made two cards with that theme.
Both of these cards have been ordered by a teacher that works at the school I clean.
Still not sure what kind of Mothers Day card I will make for my own mother.

I love you low much

The second card I worked on is also a wee stamp by Sylvia Zet, I thought he was a cutie. When my nephew Jacob was a little guy he used to pick little flowery weeds from the grass and fill my pockets with them before I went home. Now he is a grown man. Time sure does fly by.
