Farewell Jules


It was very sad to say goodbye to one of my coworkers and good friend Jules. Although I could say much about how I really feel about her dismissal; I will keep my mouth closed and swallow hard. One thing I can be happy about is that we are friends outside work and that will not stop us to continue to do things together. I will miss my lunch buddy though! :(


I made a big huge card for Jules and had every one sign it. I should have taken a picture to show you all the farewell wishes; the card was covered. I used an older image by Kenny K called Download Diva. She looks just like Jules.



I entered this card in the following challenges:
ATCs & Cards With Attitude - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz - Use a digi image
Lily Pad - Flower Challenge
Stampin' For The Weekend - Anything Goes

Guylou's goes one color


This monochromatic challenge was so timely. I needed to make a sympathy card for two of my childhood friends (two sisters) and their family. They lost their mom recently in a snow mobile accident. She was only 69 years old. She was a wonderful person, always so welcoming when I used to visit. I will miss her.


I wanted to make a card that was feminine and serene just like Mme Huot. I chose Gabrielle because she is praying and expresses peace, serenity and beauty. 



The challenge starts today and ends on March 29th at 10pm. Remember if you use one of my images, you get two entries in the challenge. A random winner will be selected and will win a $10 gift certificate from Guylou's Online Store and will have the opportunity to be a Guest Designer on one of our upcoming challenges.

Please take a moment to go see what my fellow DT members and our Guest Designer, Heather, did for this challenge at Guylou's Inimitability.

Mahvelous March at The Outlawz Color Challenge - Week 2


This week, I am your host at the Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge. I am challenging you to use the following cool color combo: Winter Blue Sky, Dark as Night Black and White as Snow. This week the Mahvelous March Twist is "Include a Fuzzy Friend on you project".
 

I know what you are thinking... why oh why would she want to remind us of winter. Sorry about that! I just like this crisp color combo. We did not have much of a winter in T.O. this year and I have to admit that it was nice. No snow to shovel; no long commute to work because people don't know how to drive on snow and no need to put booties on my doggies' paws as the sidewalks were nice and dry.

For this challenge, I selected one of my images called Serena on her bicycle. She is riding with her little dog who seems to have a great time with his ears flapping in the wind.



This month our sponsor is ME, Guylou. Our winner this month will win a $20 gift certificate from my online store. Please take a moment to visit my store and to see all my wonderful images.

Mahvelous March at The Outlawz Color Challenge - Week 1


Welcome to a new month of challenges at the Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge. Sara selected our first color combo: Pink Flamingo, Sun Shower Yellow and Fiesta Orange. Our Mahvelous March Twist for this week is "Add a rosette".


I made the above card for a dear friend who recently turned the big 5-0. She enjoys yoga and I thought my new image called Lotus does Yoga would be perfect for this card. I broadly interpreted the twist by copying a flower from the inspiration image. I picked up the stamp for the inside sentiment in the $1.50 bin at Michael's. I really enjoyed working with this week color combo. I like these three colors together... so festive!!

First Card for the 13th CDAC Progressive Challenge


This is my first entry for the 13th Progressive Challenge at CDAC. You have to be a member of the CDAC site and also of the Progressing Challenge group in order to participate. For every challenge you get wonderful images from quality artists for FREE!! Oh yeah!! FOR FREE!!! There is a small fee if you are joining for the first time or have not met the "one project per challenge" minimum requirement ($1). 

While surfing the net; I came across a page that contains lots of wonderful Irish proverbs. One in particular caught my attention: "May you live to be 100 years, with one extra year to repent." What a great way to live your life. :) I had to make a card with this wonderful saying and that's why I selected to use a wonderful image by Back to Paper called "Miss Beth". She looks like a little Irish girl to me and suited by purpose perfectly.

The papers and embellishments are by Cosmo Cricket: Social Club collection.



A Thank You card for Robin


Robin is a friend and also one of my co-workers. He is a wiz with computers. He recently re-formatted an old computer that was given to me and made it better than a new one. I am so grateful that he did that for me. Although he does not want anything in return; I have decided to get him a gift card from his favorite coffee shop and I made this card to thank him.

Unfortunately, I don't know who is the artist who created this fun cat digi. If you do, please let me know. I like to give credit to the artists. The front Thank You is from a set of rubber stamp sentiments I got at the Dollarama and the inside sentiment is a freebie from TLC Creations.

All the papers are from my scrap box. I don't like waste and it always feel good when I am able to use my scraps.

Fly so high to catch the sky - New challenge at GI


Every time I see a challenge that has to do with wings; I start singing "Wind beneath my wings" by Bette Midler. So it was no exception that I started to sing this song when my dear friend Sara challenged us to make a project that has things with wings. Unfortunately, due to health issues, Sara had to step down from Guylou's Inimitability Design Team. We were all very sad to see her leave and we pray for a quick recovery. Sara, you are the wind beneath my wings! Get well soon!

The good news is that my dear friend Roxann will join us on the team. Roxann and I have been teamies on The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge for a year and she is wonderful. We are so happy to have her on the team. Welcome Roxann!


So for Sara's challenge I made a birthday card with Fairy Bear. I usually keep my cards very simple... less risk to mess it up. But this time around I got embellishments busy. The challenge starts today and ends on March 1st at 10pm. Remember if you use one of my images, you get two entries in the challenge.  A random winner will be selected and will win a $10 gift certificate from Guylou's Online Store and will have the opportunity to be a Guest Designer on one of our upcoming challenges.

Also, for 24 hours only starting March 2nd, Fairy Bear will be available for free. Check Guylou's Inimitability for all the details.

Please take a moment to go see what my fellow DT members and our Guest Designer, Carla, did for this challenge at Guylou's Inimitability.
