Thank you, Thank you, Thank you and Thank you!!


Sometimes I feel I don't say thank you enough. What amazes me is that I am currently grateful for a bad situation that happened in my life several years ago. I recently renewed friendship with someone I have not seen in many many years. We bumped into each other at a Starbucks on a Saturday morning a few weeks ago. Neither of us live close by that particular Starbucks and yet we met there! Luck!! I don't think so!! Providence!!! Most likely! I don't believe in luck; I believe there is a reason for everything. The sad thing is that he is currently going through what I went through a few years ago. I am able to offer him a much needed support and maybe a bit of wisdom to help him make the right decisions. I am also there to listen when he needs to vent; I wish I had someone to vent to when things were tough for me. This situation he is going through is messy, just like what I had to face several years ago, but if I did not go through this; I would not be able to relate and offer educated support to my friend during this difficult time. For this I am grateful.


This week, Carla is our host at Guylou's!! She is challenging us to make a Thanksgiving or Thank you card.  I used Felicia Mermaid on her side for my card.

The challenge starts today and ends on November 29th at 10pm. Remember if you use one of my images, you get two entries in the challenge. A random winner will be selected and will win a $10 gift certificate from Guylou's Online Store and will have the opportunity to be a Guest Designer on one of our upcoming challenges.

Nostalgic November Challenge at the Outlawz - Week 1


This week, Teresa is our host at the Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge. She is challenging us to use the following color combo: Saguero Green, Totally Tan and Downing Earth Brown. This week the Nostalgic November Twist is "Make it Vintage".


Ok... this was very very hard for me. I am just not a vintage girl. I was stock and was seriously thinking to skip this challenge, but I really wanted to do a card for Memorial Day. Teresa inspired us with a great pic of her father and I had to man or woman up and just do it.

I used one of my images called Praying Soldier and tried to make the card as vintage as I could. 



This month our sponsor is Delicious Doodles. She is offering 4 images to the winner's choice. What an awesome prize!!

Tickle me Challenge at Guylou's Inimitability


Roxann is our host at Guylou's!! She came up with a fantastic challenge: Add one or more feathers on your project. I knew right away which image I was going to use for this challenge. I used my Singing Pirate and added the feathers to his hat. My brother Réjean's birthday is coming up in December and thought it would work well for him. I wish I could translate the card for you, but it contains French Pirate's sayings which would not make any sense in English. 

The papers and brads are by My Mind's Eye from their Lost & Found » Union Square » Home Sweet Home series. 



The challenge starts today and ends on November 15th at 10pm. Remember if you use one of my images, you get two entries in the challenge. A random winner will be selected and will win a $10 gift certificate from Guylou's Online Store and will have the opportunity to be a Guest Designer on one of our upcoming challenges.
