Paper Bakery post

Today is an exciting day for me because I have my first blog post for Paper Bakery right here.

I got to play with the January card kit "Love Potion #9". It's full of so many awesome goodies that you should run over to the store and get one for yourself.

Here is my first card.

Here are a couple of close-ups too.

Stay tuned for more cards from this fabulous kit!

Seize the Birthday

Today is my first day as a member of the Seize the Birthday challenge blog.

Our "toppings' option this month is "COLOURING".

Remember that you don't have to use the toppings option. As long as you create a "birthday" project you are good to go!

Here is my card and I DID use the toppings and chose to colour with my copics.

Cardstock: AC, Neenah
PP: Basic Grey
Pearls: Doodlebug
Dies: Spellbinder, Wplus9
Ink: Versafine
Stamps: Wplus9, Penny Black
Ribbon: May Arts
Other: enamel accents, uniball, stickles, copics
I hope you will play along and also see what the rest of the DT created right here.

Santa's List

First I have to apologize for the quiet blog. Of course there was the hectic time before Christmas with all the shopping and baking etc. but then on Christmas morning my sweet Mother had a stroke.

Of course life was turned upside down!! She is doing fine physically but she is having a difficult time finding her words so she is very frustrated. She can't seem to do simple functions involving numbers and letters so cooking and microwaving meals are not an option.

We are settling into some sort of a routine and hopefully we can get her the rehab she needs.

I was given some of the wonderful Teresa Collins "Santa's List" to play with from the store Scrapbook Memories and More.

Here is a card that I made.
