May schedule

I used mostly "This and That - Epic Day" designer kit for this design. This was actually created to be sent out as my newsletter - I think it turned out great - just love the colours!

Boys will be boys

This was a challenge for last week.
I knew right away when the challange was posted what kind of page I would create. My dear husband with his toy :)

The papers are from the kit "World Traveller" (just changed the colours a bit) and the tire marks are done with a chevron stamp - just added several one after the other (had to crop some) and then copied it for the second track
I also worked on the same picture - just did it in different colours, tones (the top photo has been edited on my iPhone)
We actually went to a Classic Car show here in Ottawa yesterday - one guy had a cute sign on his car.

 I thought I should make one like that for Tom to put on his window when he parks somewhere else than in our garage :)
Hope you are enjoying the sunny Sunday - I started mine slow (we had a late breakfast - well... I guess it was actually lunch - it was too late for brunch too. Check the time on this picture :)
Then I did our sheets and went to the garden (well... let's be honest - it is a back yard! NO gardening has been done there. I think our grass is more weed than grass!!!
So I was pulling out weeds from the back yard (you name it - we have them - you are more than welcome to get some if you want!!!)
I also blow toached our patio stones (those weeds get there too!!)
Then it just got too hot so had to come back in :)

Special "Buttons Galore" card class, Thursday May 2nd

Thursday May 2nd at 7pm
Special"Buttons Galore" card class
This is an older card, but we will be doing one similar to this
Since there are so many buttons retiring and I have TONS that need to be used - I figured why not do a card class focused on BUTTONS!

Cost of class 10 dollars (4 cards)
(place an order of 15 dollars plus s/h&tax, and the class is FREE!!!)
Please RSVP by Tuesday April 30th

One set that we will be using is this "Button Buddies", which is actually retiring this year.

I love how it is so versatile. It gives you birthday cards, thanksgiving/halloween cards, Christmas/winter cards, baby cards and so much more.

Button Buddies
Another stamp set we will use is "Itty Bitty Bits", which we will be using with clear "Bitty" buttons.
I have an idea for the 4th card, but I'll have to work on that a bit...

Here are 2 more cards we will be making (both using Button Buddies stamp set)
The one covered with flowers (Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight and Lucky Limeade) is also using a technique called "masking"

VERY unproductive week!!!

And it's all due to the devious new game app - Hay Day!!!
Warning - it is very addictive. So much so that I haven't been able to produce much more than virtual crops and pies :)

Well - finally I dragged myself away from my iPad to create a new smoothie/coffee mug cover.

I used the "This and That" Epic Day  embellishments on this digital project

Photos with phone

In the past couple of weeks I have tried to learn how to take pictures with my iPhone5 and edit them with various programs.

All the programs have different features, so I have been flipping the photos from one program to the next. I still have hard time remembering what features are in each program ;-)

Here are my top 10 editing apps


Color Splash
Color Effects
Handy Photo


I still haven't ventured to the world of Instagram.... I guess I have to take that step sometime in the near future.

The first picture is with very little editing, and the second picture is with colour enhancement editing
