Happy New Year

Hello fellow bloggers. I have been away for awhile due to health issues but that isn't really a good enough excuse. I have been crafting alot just not blogging so my KINDA new years resolution is to try to blog every day or so.. Even if I am not showing my crafting goodies I will blog a little something about something.
Its a nasty day outside in Southwestern Ontario.. snowed overnight and now is trying to rain.
The wind is blowing strong... oppps just looked outside as I sit at the computer and its snowing great big flakes (wonder what happened to the rain?) It's a good day to stay inside and craft and read and
make meatloaf and mashed potatoes for supper.
Hope everyone had a safe and happy Christmas season and a Happy New Year!
(Im off to find my camera so the next post can have some pics!!!)

Easter Card

Happy Monday, 
I can't believe it's been almost a year since I have blogged.
It is a wonderful day here in Southwestern Ontario!
I made this Easter box card to celebrate Spring.

The Easter eggs are files from Miss Kate's Cuttables from last year
but they are so cute I had to use them.
The grass and butterflies are die cuts.
Have a great Monday!

Mojo Monday #391 Penguin Birthday

Happy Easter Weekend Everyone!
I saw this Mojo Monday sketch and I had to use it for Emily's birthday card.
I got this free Penguin from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs 
I added a few layers to the flower and added Stickles.
The little heart stamp is a Stamp Up stamp.

I tweaked the Mojo Monday sketch slightly making it 6 1/4  x 6 1/4
The penguin is pretty big so I wanted a bigger card..
The happy birthday is a die cut.


I did enter this in the Mojo Monday challenge

Thanks for stopping by..
Have a wonderful day.

TR Mechanical Error - Altered Notebook

Happy March 31st!
March came in like a lion so its mostly going out like a lamb..
 it has snowed again.. about 2 inches..
it is quite warm out but pretty flakes of snow... 
Wednesday will be warmer.. and Thursday and Friday are good...
We are supposed to have double digits on Thursday so it will be warm.
I have my fingers crossed it will also be sunny..

Here is my Altered Journal made with Mechanical Error digital paper. 
I honestly thought I would have trouble as I am not into steampunk. 
But this journal has it all.. Combining beautiful roses with steampunk designs..
 I love the sayings and the colours are fantastic. 
I have a few more projects in mind now that I have actually used this paper. 
I think with Tsunami Rose Digital Papers all ideas are stepped up a notch to make them more interesting.
 I wanted to showcase four different papers so I quartered my front page. 
I also used two sayings and the beautiful stop watch... (Don't you just love the colours!)

Come and check out Mechanical Error...
and all the other wonderful digital papers at Tsunami Rose Designs..
(If you get there quick there is some gorgeous but cute Easter paper!!!!)
