Some play time !!


Good Day dear friends !!! I hope everyone’s week is going well. It is almost the weekend for all the hard working people !!!

As for me, well I am still off work . Yes I went and seen the surgeon  yesterday and he is not letting me return to work  yet. I go back for another follow up in a couple of weeks

It is nice to be off work but not without a paycheck coming in. Plus I am really starting to get bored lol Yelp you read that right. i was sort of ready to go back to work. Maybe just not the long hours lol

But today I wanted to show you a couple of things I have made over the last few days that I finally finished.

First up here is a birthday card for my brother. I am not very good doing guy cards so no flowers here lol. But I have used Edwin here from Magnolia. He has been colored with my copic’s and  the sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.  I have used a label from Spellbinders and some brads with spacers in the corner.

These gorgeous papers are from Maja Design that was from the Crea Shop. Oh how I wish we could get these papers here in the states !!!!!!!!


Next I finally finished a bag I needed to put a gift in and I used these adorable Hanglar images. Papers are from K&Co and I used Spellbinder corner die, Cheery Lynn Designs for the doily and a die from Tim Holtz for the bracket.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I have used a Magnolia leaf die and a MS branch punch. The lace was from my stash and I distressed the edges of the papers with distressed inks.  And the border punch I used is from SU.

I also used a Viva Decor Pearl Pen to make some  flat pearls on the corner dies. Susana has lots of Viva Decor Products in her store and am so loving playing with all these products.


Here is a close up of the bag.


Well that is it for me for today. I need to try to go do some cleaning and then hope to get some more play time in.

Thanks for stopping bye and visiting me and I so appreciate all your lovely comments you leave me. They do mean so much.

  1. Such pretty creations you have made. Love the card for your brother. My kind of colours. :)
    Love n hugs

  2. Well, I am sorry you are still not well enough to go back to work yet, especially when you don't have that pay check coming in. Sorry honey....But, Look at all these goodies you are making in the mean time You have definately are making some eye candy.. Love everything..haven't played with any of my Tilda, Edwins or hAnglars looks like I'll be dusting them off this weekend thanks for the inspiration

  3. Glad the surgeon didn't let you go back too soon - sometimes it's better to take longer to recover for you then are much stronger & less likely to pick up any bugs around work. Your body needs time to heal but it's not easy when it depletes the funds.
    I love the colours of your brother's card & the way your patterned paper edges are finished. The bracket works superbly in both the compositions but it is the lace & white edging of the bag that really draws my eye. Just a lovely composition & great fun.
    Do take care & wishing you all the best for 2012.
