Tangerine Cat Card

Hey everyone!

So I always have excuses why I don't get more cards made in a week but like I said in my previous post, I don't know where the time goes! I always feel so busy but it's not like I'm getting anything done :P That's not true. I spent a good chunk of the day yesterday fixing up my bicycle (now I have transportation when my hubby's at school!) My husband is also back at school (like most of your children :P) equally as stressful as relieving, you know? I've also taken up Kung Fu twice a week so that's exciting! Anywho! Lets get on to this weeks Scrapmaster's Paradise Colour Combo Challenge!

This weeks swatch:


I loved this combo. I wanted to do something for fall but that seemed too obvious :P Wanted to keep it simple, so here you go. I really don't have that good of lighting, the pictures never seem to do the colours justice. Oh well, all the colour in the background is red. Looks much better in person :P Enjoy.

Paisley Owl Card

Hey everyone!

Yikes! I honestly don't know where the time goes! I guess time flies when you're having fun. It's time for this weeks Simply Sunday Challenge from Getting Cricky.

Challenge: Winged Things

I decided I would use one of my new Cricut cartridge: Paisley! It is absolutely adorable and I couldn't wait to cut something with it! Well, here is my winged thing.

Blue Bird Buzzer Cover

Hey everyone!

I figured I would post another card before the weekend since it's gonna be crazy, so I guess it's time for this week's Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo Challenges entry. 




So we have this INCREDIBLY ugly buzzer by our front door (it's like half painted and the directions are written on it in sharpie, it's gross) that I covered up with a drawing I did of a pug when we first moved in. Well, just a few days ago the pug fell down, so I decided to replace it. With a blue bird!

Red Card With Stars

Hey everyone!

So if you don't want to hear my excuses for this week then you can just skip ahead :P Ummm, where do I even start? Of course I went to my parents one last time before my mom is back to school, the Toronto FanExpo was this past weekend, went to Wonderland on Wednesday and today my husband had his first day of teachers college! Yay! Well it was a mandatory registration/orientation but he had to go all the way to London for it. And tomorrow too. He's trying to make the transition from working nights to SLEEPING at night now that school is starting back up. It'll take him a few days to switch back so he's been sleepy. I've just been busy, as usual. Hopefully my schedule will get a little more boring after labour day. Have a wedding, a family corn roast and a funeral, with LOTS of driving in between this weekend. Should be crazy.

Anywho! I'm awful close to the cut off for this weeks Paper Cutz Challenge but I'm just sneaking it in at the very, very last minute :P

Challenge: Use stars and any colour or theme you'd like.

Easy enough to whip it up in an hour or so. It is pretty simple and flat but I kinda like it like that. Haven't quite decided what I'll use it for yet but I can fit a little "Happy Birthday" or even "Merry Christmas" down the left side there.
