Sunday Shares


Hello! So this is how I feel today! Sadie says it all!
This past week was super busy to say the least. 
I was busy organizing the daffodil sales for the Canadian Cancer Society, which was a smashing success. We sold out super early. So we know for next year to order more flowers. Thanks to all the people who volenteered their time to help such a great cause.

I was also prepping this past week for yesterdays craft show in Kerrobert! Thanks to my friend Sharon for taking the time in the evenings to come help me prepare. She was a lifesaver!! 
Then in the midst of my super crazy week, poor Max the dog got sick, and I mean sick! Throw up 9 times in 3 hours sick! Which continued into the next day. So up to the vet he went where he spent the day in observation. He really wasn't himself, but after blood work, xrays, antibiotic shots everyday and special dog food diet & pills for the next week he actually wagged his tail today! And here I almost wrote him off for doggy heaven. Nothing that $500+ can't fix! We do love our pets don't we.
To end off the week, as soon as I got home from the craft fair, I quickly changed clothes and went to help cater a wedding reception for my friend Jackie. I truely love helping this fabulous lady. It's always quick, exciting and lots of work but it is so much fun and the food afterwards is to die for! I do not eat this well at home, Prime Rib!! Are you kidding me... Yes Please! It was so delicious, I really have no words.
Alright, enough about my week, let me share these super cute treat cups that are available from Stampin Up!



Now my friends know how much I love paper and even more, how much I hoard my paper! LOL! I know we all do it. But this Gummy Bear DSP is the reason I bought this Sweet Treats paper pack! And I actually used it!
These are food safe treat cups and the Shreddie you can fill the cups with is on the Clearance Rack for $4 and you get a very large bag of 3 colors! 

Thanks for stopping by today! Check back again for more shares.

Mailable Monday - You're Inspiring

Welcome to another Mailable Monday card share.
I was lucky enough to borrow this set from a friend to create my fabulous thank you cards!
 I will also have to give credit to the other fabulous creation from Stampin Up! the wonderful Stamparatus! Without this tool from SU! I would not have been able to create 25 identical cards in an afternoon.
If you know me, I will honestly tell you that I cannot, and I repeat CANNOT!! make more than 8 cardsof the same design. I have worked my way slowly from 2 to 6 to 8! That seems to be my new limit. I get bored very easily, so having to make 25 of the same card is truly amazing! 
This stamping tool is a must to add to your stamp room. You might not always use it but when you need it you NEED it! LOL!
Here are my thank you cards, now I just have to sign them all...

Stamps: You're Inspiring, Artfully Aware
Cardstock & Ink: Whisper White, So Saffron, Memento Black Ink
Stampin Blends: Light Daffodil Delight,Light Granny Apple Green, Dark Mango Melody
Note Cards - Micheals
I didn't have enough SU note cards in my stash so I stopped in at the big box store and grabbed a couple of packages to finish the job!
I will be handing these out this week to some very special people! Maybe you will be one of them.
Have a super Monday friend!

Sunday Shares

Good morning! Welcome to my Sunday Shares.
We wrapped up another successful all day crafting fair in Glidden yesterday.
I didn't get as much done as I was hoping for, but to be fair we did have a power outage for 2 hours. Luckily I was coloring my stamped images so I was able to see enough to do that. 
I finished 25 thank you cards that I am needing this week, so I am very happy with that. I will share those cards tomorrow for my Mailable Monday Blog post, so check back again tomorrow!
I also taught a bag making class in groups of 2, so that was fun to!
We made these fun bags that I also shared in my Friday Blog Hop post. These are 2 that I gave away to my Card Club members as a thank you. I still have to make the rest today! I cased these from the fabuloius Lee Ann Greff, SU Demo.



I used the beautiful Botanical Butterfly DSP from this years Saleabration Catty. This is a great way to use up all the beautiful paper I tend to hoard!

Stamps: Butterfly Gala, Wonderful Moments
Cardstock & Ink: Basic Black,Whisper White, Memento Black Ink, VersaMark ink, Botanical Butterfly DSP
Stictched Framelit Dies, Big Shot, 1-3/8" Circle Punch

Blogging Friends Blog Hop April 2019 - Happy Easter!


Hello! Welcome to another Blogging Friends Blog Hop! 
We are celebrating this month with our Easter creations. I am sure you will be impressed by all the talented participants this month.
For todays card I used the Hold Onto Hope stamp set.
I really had good intentions to come up with a jaw dropping card but sometimes simple is just better!

Now for some fun! How do you like my Retro Garfield Bunny!
My Dad had bought this for me many years ago, lets say 32ish years ago. 
I thought he looked perfect posing with these cute little bags I created. 
Lee Ann Greff had a quick video and they really are just that easy to make!
I made quite a few for an up coming craft show and also for my Club Ladies as their thank you's this month.




Thank you for taking the time to stop by today, we do appreciate you our loyal friends and customers.
Please leave a comment below before continuing onto the next blog.
Happy Stampin!

The Clarkes - Family & Friends

Hello and thanks so much for stopping by my Blog today!
I have a really cute project to share with you today using the Family & Friends stamp set.
This could easily be made into a card front, but I really wanted to make a framed piece.
This is only the second time I have used this stamp set and it's pretty easy to use I must say.
Here is my framed creation!
Ok so first I will point out that I forgot to stamp my husband with the goatee stamp for his stash and beard! I think the easiest way to solve this little mishap is to have him shave his beard! Problem solved, I think anyways! He might not go for it though, haha!!
Thanks for stopping by!
I will be offering a class with this set soon, it's just too cute not to!
Happy Stampin!

Happy St. Patricks Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone.
Today was a special day, as it was my Mom's 82nd Birthday. That is amazing in my books! She is an amazing woman and that my friend calls for an amazing card don't you think!!??
I bought the Family & Friends stamp set a couple weeks ago and decided to ink it up today. I love how my card turned out and more important Mom loved it to.
I followed Dawn Griffiths Video HERE for insperation for this Fancy Fold card.
Inside Base 




What do you think? I also love this paper from Sweetest Things DSP 12x12 paper pack.
I am going to miss Lemon Lime Twist it is such a bright and fun color and goes with everything!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Super Cute 3x3 Thank You's

Hello! I have a super cute thank you card today featuring 2 Sale-A-Bration items.
I made these cards for my Card Club Ladies. 
I used the NEW Painted Seasons DSP paper pack from the second release. I love this pretty paper especially the mushroom paper which I used on these cards. 
I normally hoard the paper I love but today I cut it up! Yay me!



Stamps: Part of my Story (SAB 2019)
Cardstock & Ink: Call Me Clover, Whisper White, Poppy Parade, Painted Seasons DSP (SAB 2019)

Aren't they cute! All the pages in this paper pack are so versatile. 
Like I said, super simple and I love the sentiment, we must tell our friends more how much they mean to us.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have an awesome evening.
Michelle

Blogging Friends Blog Hop March 2019 - April Showers!


Hello! Welcome to another wonderful Blogging Friends Blog Hop.
Our theme this month is April Showers, and with all the fabulous choices in our current cataloges, I am sure you will be wowed by all the projects you see today!
For my card I used the Sale-a-Bration stamp set, Lasting Lily.
I also just received the Well Said Stamp and Die Bundle and I came up with this simple but elegant Sympathy card.

I stamped everything using Basic Gray ink on matching cardstock. Then I used my favorite Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut my cardstock. It adds just a little extra detail to a simple card. What do you think? I love it.
I made a second card using the same techniques just in portrait and in a bright and cheery Daffodil Delight!

I am having lots of fun with my new bow maker! This is a triple loop bow and I love it! I kept trying for a double loop bow... I must keep practicing.

Thank you for taking the time to follow our blog hop today.
