Sending Sunny Vibes

Wednesday, July 8, 2020
This week has been an incredibly busy one for me so far so I'm glad it's Wednesday and halfway to the weekend! Last week, I was off on Wednesday due to Canada Day and our uni's president closed the school for Thursday and Friday, giving all staff and faculty two days paid holiday in recognition of our work and efforts over the past few months as we shifted to remote work. It was so nice to have the time off! I do absolutely love my job but admit to preferring time in the sun, especially in or near water!

Imke is our hostess at Little Red Wagon and she's calling out, "Embossing!" She's happy to see either heat or dry embossing on our projects. I decided to continue the summertime theme from last week and created my sunny background with some heat embossing made with sparkly embossing powder.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created and then get out your embossing tools to join the fun!

Warmest Birthday Wishes

Happy Canada Day!! I do hope that all my Canadian friends have a wonderful day! It will be a very different day of celebrations given our physical distancing. In my area, we are now permitted to gather in groups of no more than 10 so the kids and I are headed to my sister's place. Even though she lives nearby, we have not seen each other since pre-lockdown!

I'm thrilled to be hosting this week's challenge at Little Red Wagon - Summertime Fun! I love summer - and lazy days at the beach with a book and sand between my toes are like heaven on earth! I had a super fun time colouring up all the My Favourite Things "Sunny Vibes" images for my card. I had to substitute the sun from the set as my Scan'NCut didn't want to cut it as one image!

I'd like to point out that the cups are all reusable and that's definitely a stainless steel straw. Anybody who knows me well knows that I am a HUGE advocate of lugging mugs and stainless steel straws. I carry these things around with me. Anyway, I didn't want anybody to think that I was supporting single-use cups or plastic straws here!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what other Summertime Fun creations the Girlfriends have made - and then create and link up your own project!

I'm also entering this card at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge - Bright and Cheerful!

You are My World

Brenda is our fabulous hostess at Little Red Wagon and she's thinking "About that solar eclipse". Brenda is challenging us to us the sun, moon, planets and/or stars on our projects.

I decided to use Planet Earth and stars to create my card. I did both heat and dry embossing on my distress inked background. My fingers were a huge mess mid-creation but cleaned up quite nicely!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the creations made by the rest of the Girlfriends. We'd love to have you join the fun too!

This week's Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge is Shoot for the Stars. I'll be linking my card up there as well.

Dogs Leave Paw Prints

Wednesday, June 17, 2020
I can't believe it's Wednesday again already! These days are flying by. I feel that I'm constantly on the go - even though I haven't been leaving the house! The weather has been glorious here and there have been several times that I've moved part of my workstation outdoors to work on the deck. Basically, this just means that I take the laptop outside to work but it sounds a bit more professional to call it my workstation! Typically, I work with two large monitors. However, I'm willing to sacrifice screen size in order to enjoy the sun!

Jan is our hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's looking for "Animal Antics". If your project has an animal of any kind, shape or size, it can be a contender in our challenge!

I created a little sympathy card for my son's girlfriend's co-worker who lost her beloved pup. I used stamps from Reverse Confetti and a Simon Says die (which I cut and used as a stencil) for the background. And if you look very closely, you'll see there's a little paw print in one of the hearts above the dog house on the right-hand side.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the Girlfriends' creations - and then link up your own Animal Antics projects!

Sending You Sunshine and Smiles

Wednesday, June 10, 2020
We are finally being blessed with incredible weather here in Central Ontario. As I'm working from home, it's easy for me to take all my breaks outside. I've also been eating all my meals outside and just loving it!

Doni is our Hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's calling out, "Hello Sunshine!". Doni is looking for suns or bright yellow (or both!) on our projects.

I used a Simon Says Stamp "Happy Days" stamp set that was part of a card kit from years ago. These images look so happy that they make me happy!

Please get out your suns and your yellows to create your own Hello Sunshine projects for this week's challenge. Be sure to check out the rest of the Girlfriends' projects at Little Red Wagon too!
