I decided to make another personalized baby card to celebrate a friend having a baby recently. The name she chose, Brent, also happens to be the middle name of our son, Alexander! I was very inspired by Grace Camou's recent starry night sky card where she created a moon using an outside in circle die set. I loved the dark blue sky that she created with the puffy vellum cards and just had to make one myself!

 I recently found out that I got another position teaching at our local college! I will be team teaching another University of Victoria course in the teacher education program. This course is the first year seminar course in preparation for the first teaching practicum in the program. To celebrate, I just HAD to make a card for my new teaching partner!

 Today was my Mom's birthday and I am so happy that I found some time to put together a card for her using some of my favourites from The Greetery! I just so happened to be given an incredible bouquet of flowers from MJ's Floral and was pretty stoked to pair it up with this card for my photo :).

 Did you know that the Caesar is Canada's national drink? I did not! Here, on this stamp, it is called a Bloody Mary - I definitely like our name better! I absolutely love these blueprint stamps by Tim Holtz. I was very inspired by my Aunt's recent cards with them and she very kindly sent out some blank ones for me to colour up - thanks, Auntie Karen!

 I discovered this amazing combination of distress oxides the other day to create some beautiful hydrangeas with the Budding Beauties - Summer set from The Greetery. I used Salvaged Patina distress oxide and finger daubed in some Twisted Citron distress oxide. I used Chipped Sapphire for the petal details. For the stem of the hydrangea I used Rustic Wilderness and Twisted Citron again for the leaves. I paired this stem with another from the same set. I went for a pink peony by using Spun Sugar + Picked Raspberry distress oxide. Rustic Wilderness was used again for the stems and accented with Black Soot distress oxide.
