This envelope still had most of the address on it, so I know who it belongs to, and I have emailed that individual. But it makes me wonder if any others ended up this way as well. If you won a set of pencils from me and either never received them, or received them damaged, could you PLEASE email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would like to send you something out to make up for not getting your pencils. Please don't be shy - I am mortified and would like the chance to follow through.

Speaking of pictures, I unfortunately had to replace my camera. We decided to do it in the States as we saved about $130 - the differences in prices between the U.S. and Canada is just ridiculous!! My Canon S2 IS died after only 2 years. I am bummed because it was an expensive camera and it didn't hold up. I get the dreaded E18 error - which seems to run rampant in Canons and they won't admit there's a problem. Anyway.....
I did get some time to go shopping while in Georgia! I went to the cutest little stamp store in a house - rooms full of stamps. I bought some Lockhart stamps there. And I got to go to Archivers - which is always super fun!! Tomorrow I'm off to Hobby Lobby to pick up a couple of Copics that I'm having a hard time finding back home and hopefully a couple of the new Cuttlebug folders!! Hope to have some Disney pics up soon!! Hope you're all having a great week!!!

This card is one I've been thinking of for a while. I got this SU set - Spring Song last month at my SU club and haven't been able to make a card with it yet. I was determined to get it done! I stamped the bird in Versafine Onyx black and embossed with clear detail embossing powder on watercolour paper. I watercoloured it using my aquapainter and my ink pads. The paper is Basic Grey mellow on Pumpkin pie cardstock. I distressed the edges with my Tim Holz paper distressor and added a Prima flower and a Bella bauble. I was a little afraid of this image but am loving the way it came out - I see lots of bird cards in my future 'cause I just love this little one!

I am honoured to have been awarded an award from my friend Michelle! I'd like to pass it to a couple of my fave bloggers.
Card Metaphors (have you seen the new stamp set Alli Miles created for Papertrey?! OMG!!)
Card Creme (Sherrie Siemens is so inspiring to me and has been so willing to help and share when I've emailed her)
My Favorite Things (cause I love all of Dawn McVey's cards and her style)
Mish Mash (Michelle Wooderson is constantly giving me new ideas and inspiration)
Heartfelt Greetings (Amy is so open and honest and makes beautiful cards)
There are tons of others I'd love to pass this to - but these are some of my daily fix! Hope to be back tomorrow with a new card! A good friend and I are going into Toronto to hit a couple of fabric stores - I know I will be inspired! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

I stamped the flourish from Baroque Motifs in Versamark and embossed with silver embossing powder. I used a tutorial from Natasha to dry emboss the rectangle. A neat effect that I'll use again - until I get my own set of Nestabilities anyway.
Here's another Baroque card - these are pretty simple and I haven't had time to really "play" with this set yet.
Colours are Blue Bayou and Soft Sky and I overstamped everything with Versamagic Platinum metallic chalk ink for a bit of pizzazz. I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line everything up when stamping for the second time.
Thanks for stopping by. Sending you all healthy vibes so that you can avoid getting sick!!!

Check out the latest entry by Nate, husband to Tricia and Dad to Gwyneth. I mentioned them in this blog a while ago and have been enthralled by their story and they have remained in my heart and my prayers, although I don't know them. I am compelled by their faith and trust. What an amazing example of God at work!
