New Deena Rutter

Here's a quick card I whipped up with Deena Rutter's latest digital kit 
I just love the colors in this kit.  I pulled out some old Stampin' Up Build a Brad's to make the centres of the flowers - so easy and so cute right?

Thanks for stopping by today!

Deena Rutter Grateful

This cute hybrid card is made using Deena Rutters October Every Little Bit kit.
I added the 'birthday' sentiment from a Stampin' Up set.
 I just love the subtle colors on this card.

Colour Q #261

It's an autumn palette over at the Colour Q this week.  I found some cute photos of my kids out hiking with me a few weeks ago.  This page is called "My Backyard", because it's only a 5 minute walk from my house to the trail head.  I live in an area that is at the forests edge of a large city.  We get lots of wildlife in our yard including bears, coyotes, cougars, racoons and of course skunks and squirrels.

Guest Designer Gig

Here's my last card from my Guest Design Gig over at The Alley Way Stamps.
The set is called Petal Pushers and it's pretty fun to work with.

Colour Q Challenge #259

Well it's Tuesday and time for another challenge over at the Colour Q.

Let me explain this page a minute.  I took these photos of my kids at the beach last week.  We've been having a warm and sunny September here in Vancouver.  And there is not school yet as the teachers have been out on strike since June.  As I am both a teacher, and married to a teacher, it's been a tough financial ride for us.  But spending the morning on the picket line gives me time to spend with my own kids.  And taking them down to the beach last week gave me a lot of unexpected joy during a really stressful time.  

The great news for me was that I woke up this morning to the news that the labour dispute has finally come to an agreement in the wee hours of the morning, and on Thursday we we vote to ratify it.  So hopefully the schools will be open next week - YAY!

It doesn't matter where you live, I'm sure you can agree that we should expect our government to follow the law, and when the break the law they should be held accountable.  And this was a major part of why we were out on strike.  I did it for the future of my children's education.

So enough of the political rant, and back to my page.  I really like using the dark background.  I think it really sets of the rest of the colours on this page.
I used these kits to make this page.


And this fantastic template
