Love. To. Dance.

Do you ever hear a favourite tune on the radio and just start dancing to it in your living room? I think that is fairly common, I know I certainly do it. It is the perfect opportunity to hear great music, and dance like no one is watching. My card today reminds me of the fun and carefree moments created by that, not to mention it is good exercise!!!

Together We Are Better

How many things in life are made better by sharing them with someone, or doing things together? Lots and lots and lots!! Stamping is one of the first things that comes to mind. I love stamping, and spending time in my craft studio, but stamping with friends is the best. We did just that on Saturday at my Stamp-a-Stack. You can see pictures of some of the fun on my Facebook page, Great Stamping With Connie.
For today, I have a card that reflects that same sentiment.

Love To Colour

I love stamping and making beautiful hand made cards of all types, but one of my favourites is colouring on my cards. When I was little, I loved to colour, and the comfort of colouring remains with me today. I think many people feel the same way, as my colouring classes are very popular, and people look forward to all the creative ways Stampin’ Up! gives us to colour our cards.

Simply Grateful

I have spent most of the summer working and living at my cottage. I am so very grateful to have an opportunity to do this. I work as a server at a local restaurant, and I love it. You meet so many wonderful people, and I have also had an opportunity to sell some of my cards. My card today, reflects my thoughts, I am grateful to be able to live in nature, in such a beautiful part of our province, and my heart overflows with gratitude.

Winter Bunny

Have you seen the Nature’s Beauty stamp set on the back page of the Holiday catalogue? It is a stunning stamp set with line drawings that include a fox, a deer and a bunny, along with some trees, etc. The images are lovely, but the best thing about this set is a Difference Maker set. That means that $4.00 from each set sold will be donated to a Mental Health Organization. In Canada, money from sales of this set will be donated to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.

A Colour Challenge

I love participating in different card making challenges, I find they push me to try things I wouldn’t think of. Today is another example of that with a colour challenge. So Saffron, Rococco Rose and Mint Macaron. I love all three of these colours, but probably would not put them together in a card if someone didn’t tell me to!

God Is Love

The Stampin’ Up! Only Challenge gives us a great opportunity to showcase some of our beautiful Designer Series paper. This card is CASE’d (Copy and Selectively Edit) from a card on page 98 of the Annual Catalogue. Today I’m using the Woven Threads DSP. I love the vintage feel of many of the sheets in this pack, and I have used one of my favourites.
