Some days I feel like this non-stop heat will be the death of me. But I also know that once summer is over I’ll be complaining about the cold, rain and wind, so there’s no pleasing me, is there? 😉

Despite the mind-numbing temps we’ve been having I managed to find it within myself to make a Christmas card. Crazy, isn’t it? I mean, it’s JULY. But Novmber will be here sooner than we’d like to think and I just don’t want to panic like I did last year.


Friday Sketchers had a wonderful sketch and I just had have a go at it.


Stamps: Stämpelboden (reindeer), HOTP (text)

Papers: Basic Grey Wassail, Bazzill

Here’s another LO I made of my girl. It’s about how she’s learning to talk and the funny words she uses. She has a juice addiction, but she calls it “chi”. 🙂


I used last week’s sketch over on Creative Scrappers.

Papers: Diane’s Daughters, Crate paper, Basic Grey

Inks: Distress inks, Versacolor

Chipbord: Lil Davis Design that I painted over with acrylic paints

Other: cardboard, cuttlebug (Labels 1), lace from stash.

Thanks for looking!

I took these pics of my girl back in March and thought I’d use them to write a little about our favourite park here in Grottaferrata. It’s so worn down, most things are broken, yet it’s the one closest to us, it’s sort of cozy and we spend many mornings there. As our time in Italy is nearing its end I feel the need to document more about our life here.




Paper:  Generic cardstock, Crate Paper
Stamps: Prima Build-a-Frame and Build-a-Swirl, Inque Boutique (title)
Inks: Versacolor Black, Distress inks (Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Spiced Marmelade, Fired Brick)
Other: Cuttlebug and swirl die, Photoshop Elements (photo strip), Prima flowers, brads

I have been so bad about blogging lately, but it doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy! In fact, I have many projects that I’m working on simultaniously, but it is slow going getting them finished. I am making a set of 20 Christmas cards for a friend, a mini album for mom for Christmas, 3 different scrapbook LOs, 3 kiddie birthday cards, not to mention that I haven’t made our own Christmas cards yet- so yeah, I’m busy! 😀

I decided to take a break today and do something just for me, for fun. I haven’t done a Splitcoast sketch challenge in forever and this sketch from last week just called out to me! LOL! Here’s what I made.


Take care, everyone, and thanks for stopping by!

My nephew turned three years recently and I made this card for him. It is my first kick stand card and I used a sketch on Splitcoast for inspiration. I bought some new Magnolia stamps and this is the first time I had a chance to use any of them, so my birthday Tilda makes a debut! :)The papers are from BasicGrey’s Oh Baby Boy collection. The ovals are made with Nestabilities on my brand new Cuttlebug – YAY! It’s like Christmas! 😀

This pic shows the strip of Choo-Choo paper inside.

Thanks for looking! Ciao!
