MIght have been the whiskey...

Sorry for not keeping up to date lately - trying to get the last few bits of summer in before the snow starts flying. - yes, I said snow!!

Chuck and I spent a fabulous weekend at the Morfee Mountain Music Festival and had the time of our lives!! It was the first time in years I saw 4:30 in the am - 2 nights in a row. And I do not think I have partaked in so many "spirits" in years. The crowd was great - the bands were out of this world, and I think we got to meet just about all of them!! And since I am a "groupy" at heart, it was right up my alley. Here is a link the the festival's site where you can take a look at who was there and what they sound like. My fav's were Julian Austin and WIL and Five Alarm Funk had everyone up and dancing!! Since Chuck and Lyle were manning the tables every now and then Chuck would buy a CD and then I would buy the same CD. It just so happens we have an extra Five Alarm Funk CD to give away. For everyone who comments on my blog I will put their name in a hat and on Monday Sept 1st will randomly draw a name and send you out the CD. (North America Only Please) Check out the photos below of some of the performers - cannot wait to scrapbook those!!

Ciao, Sandra

Deja Vu but of another colour

Just had to give one more shot. This and the last one were made using left over patterned paper (and there is lots of it still). Colours Ocean, Breeze and Vineyard Berry, Stampset With Love. Ciao

Random stamping

Just a little quickie post to show what I have been up too. It is a group of 9 from 1 cards using Blooming Flourishes and random stamping an 8.5 x 11 sheet of cardstock. The 9 from 1 isn't really so - it take 4 sheets plus your card bases to make the cards but you only stamp on ONE sheet of cardstock. It is fun though and the looks are limitless. I have another group in progress and will get it posted tomorrow. Till then, ciao

What a mess!!

So there I was about to sit down and work on some more cards and I just knew I couldn't do it without a major overhaul of my space. I stayed up until 2 am but it's now ship shape and I even found a stamp set that I was sure I had bought but could never find - and it was exactly what I needed to begin the next group of cards I plan on working on. So the first picture is as you walk into my little area - computer to the left, sewing machine to the right along with my home made paper rack. As you can see I love to use the floor for storage/garbage.

This picture is taken from dh's side of the basement. You can see both of my work spaces totally covered in junk!! As part of this process I even sorted my scraps by colour into a small file folder system. Should make paper crafting just a wee bit more cost effective and organized. Well I am off to see what kind of damage I can do in the space today. Ciao Sandra

So little time

Where do the days go?? Between painting the outside of the house, staging the inside, building a card workshop for some friends, and planning some classes for the fall I just cannot seem to get caught up. Here are a few of the cards using sasparilla papers and assorted different stamps sets. The designs for the cards come from CTMH as well as all the supplies. Back to the scrap table for me (it's too cold to paint, the furnace is on - um it's August first!!) Hopefully I will have something creative to post later, Ciao
