Bitty Blue Dino's - #GDP139


Happy Holiday Monday to my Canadian followers! It is May long weekend and the official kick off to summer! I am writing this post on Friday and am excited for a sunshiny weekend filled with friends and summer fun! I went to the greenhouse this afternoon ... everything was picked over and nearly sold out! I did manage to get some flowers so planting will be on my list of summer fun.

Cue the confetti - The Crafty Carrot Co blog hop


Hellooooo! Welcome to the May Crafty Carrot Co blog hop! We are featuring the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set and the new 2018-2020 Stampin' Up! In Color's this month!


Two weeks ago I got to spend 5 days in Salt Lake City at the Stampin' Up! home office and with Cindy Schuster! I created this card during one of our craft sessions when we were together! 

Crafting in Cindy's kitchen!






It amazing spending the week in the home office at Stampin' Up! but I truly think that spending the week with Cindy made it perfect. Stampin' Up! has given me many gifts over my eleven years as a demonstrator. Friendships from around the world are some of most cherished things that have come from this crafty thing that I do! Cindy and I laughed, cry, crafted, hiked, ate, drank and talked and talked. 

On our hike, the great salt lake behind us.

My first trip to Hobby Lobby and we found a barn door that matches
the Stamp Set!

At the Stampin' Up! home office!

Soft and swirly - GDP136


I have struggled with this layout challenge this week from the Global Design Project! I am not sure why ... maybe I my layouts are more abstract and less lineal ... 


An awesome card from Allison, right? After a few failed attempts this is my CASE card ...

CASE-ing with the Fancy Friday Blog Hop


Welcome to the April Fancy Friday Blog Hop! We are a group of current and past Stampin' Up!© Artisan Design Team members. The last Friday of each month we come together to share very Fancy Blog Hop! 

This month our theme is ...

Inspired the Occasions Mini Catalog! Select a project and
recreate it in your own way but make it REALLY fancy!


I selected the above card from the Occasions Catalogue. It was created using the Petal Passion Suite. I CASED (copy and selectively edit) the layout but changed the stamp set, greeting and color combo.





Keep following the Fancy Friday Blog Hop!!!
