Mojo Monday # 84 - KIND WORDS...

This week I actually made a card ON Mojo Monday (not days later - are you impressed dear reader? It was a long and hectic day at work, and I came home late, had supper with my family(:)) and then took a few minutes to create something for someone on my heart. This card is for someone whose kind words have breathed life into me this past week when I was hurting...

Happy Birthday Candace!

It was our neighbour, Candace's birthday today! It's awesome to have a neighbour who is also a friend!!

Another Post It Note Holder

You know my penchant for office supplies already, so it should come as no surprise that when I saw that Angie had a new type of post it note holder on her site today, I HAD to make it:)

Desk Set

I'm still not completely done, but here's the desk set I've been working on using Becky's tutorial (Becky's site is Inking Idaho - thanks Becky for such great inspiration!). It's going to be real handy to help me organize my craft desk a little more:)

It's Spring Finally...

The snow is pretty much gone finally and the birds are singing... not too much longer than there should be lilacs in bloom (ok, at least a month, but a girl can hope!)

This Week's Splitcoast Tutorial - Post-It notes....

So, by now, you know my love for school/office supplies:) ...and you've probably seen me make a post-it note holder or two as well! So you know I couldn't resist trying out this week's Splitcoast tutorial, right?

I made this one for my mother-in-law. Her birthday is on Monday, and purples are her favourite colours. Of course, we've got all her gifts ready, but I thought I'd throw this in with her card for fun too:) Unfortunately, she had a fall yesterday when she was out for a walk and is in quite a bit of pain right now. I'm praying her ankle will be better soon!

Colour Inspiration 48; Mojo Monday 81

I made a quick card after work tonight for this week's colour inspiration and mojo monday sketch. I loved the K&Co paper that I used, so this card is mostly about the paper:)

Birthday Card for a Friend

One of my oldest friends (well, not that she's old, although she is older than me, but more that we've been friends the longest, you know!) is having a birthday this week, so this is the card I made this morning:)

Whew, what a busy week it has has been my first moment to craft, can you believe it?!!
