"It's a sunny day Mommy!"

Those words when my daughter woke up this morning, her and Chase ate breakfast quickly and darted outside! I'm doing a quick blog on this holiday Monday and then I am "darting" outside too. I took my husband to Casino Niagara yesterday for an all expenses paid birthday present. We hit major traffic on the way down and he wanted to turn around and go home, I told him no way! He proceeded to complain a bit more and I ignored We finally got to the casino and we played a coulple slots and then it happened, he last credits on one of the machines and he hit the progressive jackpot! very exciting!! What a day.

Where the heck did that week go?

So, it's been a week since I last blogged, and it's been a busy one. First of all, with all the season finale's happening, I have no "spare time" (how about that Grey's Anatomy finale???!! Amazing!) and today, is my hubby's birthday. I have been racking my brain on what to get him, I really wanted to do something different, but I just didn't know what, finally I just settled with treating him to the casino, all expenses paid. He'll have a great time.
Okay here is a card that I did for my hubby's b-day, it is a card-lift and I am really sorry but I don't know the name of the person who did it. But am pretty sure I saw her card on and it just sort of stuck in my head, so thank you very much for the inspiration!

Ahhhh Saturday...I love you!

How much do I love Saturday's? The chance to sleep in (a bit), to spend time with my hubby and kids, to do errands that have been put on the backburner all week, to SPEND MONEY (one of my fav things to do), ahh yes, I do love my Saturday's. I'm also still getting over the season finale of Vampire Diaries last night, ohh baby, what an episode! It's going to be a long summer waiting for that show to start up again.
I'm going to try to get some cards done this weekend, a couple of my co-workers would like to pick and choose from what I have. So we will see what I can come up with. I bought some Copic markers today, never used them before, I;m'll see what I come up with soon:)

Loving the Sunshine

Can't believe I have the time to do another post today, loving the sunshine today, here is an appropriate card for a day like today! TFL!

Kindergarten Blues

It's not my daughter that has the kidergarten blues, it's me. This morning, I took time off work to take my 3yr old to visit her kindergarten classroom (she starts in Sept). I was so nervous this morning. She blended in nicely, she had fun with the other kids, she did some colouring and crafts, but was very shy. I am going to have a hard time when the big day arrives in Sept and I have to walk her into that classroom and leave her there...oh my heart! There will be tears that day. I can't believe how things have changed since I was in elementary school, the learning is completely different, but different for the better. The kids have to know more before going to kindergarten, they have to know how to count to 10, sing their abc's and print them, print their name, call 911 etc. I'm pretty sure that when I went to kindergarten, there was a lot of singing and clapping and playtime, now they get homework! kindergarten! Good to know my kids will be smarter than me:)

Anyways, here are a couple simple cards. I have a hard time with simple cards, I always want to do more, I have to remember that "less is more" but I always want to add a ribbon or buttons somewhere, so, yeah, simple cards are hard for

Hey there
For the past week and a half and I have searching for a dress, pulling my hair out trying to find the perfect one and the perfect fit. I couldn't find anything! The reason why I needed a dress was because I was going to a gala, the LG innovators gala. This is a black tie event and I ended up having to wear a dress that was in my closet and I was not impressed. The party was good, I went with my sister in law, I felt a little out of place, most of the people there worked with each other and were schmoozing, we, on the other hand, were just there, participating. But, it gave us a chance to people watch and comment on other peoples outfits and shoes. I think if we were to go again next year, I would search longer for a new and fabulous dress, spend more time on my hair and make-up and show up later for the party.

Now back to the cards, I managed to do a couple cards last weekend (in between shopping for a dress), and to be honest with you, I am running out of ideas. I have been online a lot looking at sketches and buying Paper Crafts magazine for inspiration. Problem is, I can't find anything that I really like. So, the search continues.
