Foilalalalaaaa la la la la….

Welp, tomorrow is turkey day in the US so that must mean, Christmas can’t be too far behind!  The stores are full of bright, sparkly things and strains of snow, red noses and angels are following me everywhere!  You’re probably gearing up for the holidays yourself already!  Well we just made it easier for you!

I’ve designed an assortment of greeting cards and gift tags for your foiling fun!  They will be available next week when Lori hosts the Love is in the Details Open House!  Here is just a sampling of them.  And forgive the photo quality…as I’ve mentioned before, the shine of foil is so hard to capture on camera!

I had a lot of fun designing these and I hope you like them!  Thanks for stopping by today!

The best day ever

As I get older, I am realizing that it is the little things that make a life special.  I am a labour and delivery nurse by day, and by night for that matter!  It is easy to get caught up in work and overtime and live for just that.  The gjrls at work make special effort to get together and do things outside of work.  It is these little events that create memories. This beautiful lady is my friend Sue from work. She is retired now so I don’t get to see her very often and when I do get to see her it is a special time.  I decided to scrap one of those special times.

I used Kaisercraft Betsy’s couture collection. I distressed all the layers and inked them with the new ground expresso colour from Tim Holtz.  It is very dark, but works well for this use in very small amounts.  I added some plain purple cardstock and some metallic ribbon I still had from my daughter’s wedding.  The Bo Bunny flower cluster is simple but elegant. I like that ombre colour palette.  I make 2 loops of the metallic ribbon and tucked them into the flower cluster.  The pearl and purple bead accents used add a little unexpected elegance as well.  The title is from My Mind’s Eye.

I encourage you to scrap your special little moments.  I promise that when you look back on the layouts, it will bring a smile to your face.
