Kitty Bee Design Team - Challenge 84


Hi, my Kitty Bee Design friends!
I'm so glad you dropped by my blog to check out the card I created for Challenge 84 - Fall Colours!

For this November card I've decided to use Carrot Wagon Bun! 
he's just so ADORABLE! 
I can just imagine him harvesting all his carrots before the first winter frost LOL!
I really wanted my cards to match his carrot and wagon... So for this card I used Michael's Crafts brads, Chapter's book store green ribbon, copic markers and some seasonal paper scraps I found in my recycling scrap bin... hehe

So, if you love this digital image as much as I do, please head over to the Kitty Bee Designs Etsy shop and snag this little bunny before he hides for the winter or if you want to get this bunny for FREE... click HERE to join our challenge ! 
happy crafting!

I'm so glad you guys trekked over here from my November Spotlight!
and since November is Thanksgiving for my American neighbours (In Canada, we celebrate Thanksgiving in October), I've decided to use Owl Buddies for my spotlight card! 
They look like a couple who are just giddy to be beside each other. Awwww! 

For this card I used my dcwv 'the green stack recycled paper pad', copic markers, some Michael's Crafts black ribbon and a little wink of stella; that's is it! 
Sooo easy and so autumn themed!

Hello, Windy City!

Well this is a very late post for my last vacation with the hubby last month! 
Just to mix things up, I wanted to keep you all updated with our latest trip, away from home... and we decided in the last minute to go to Chicago!!! 

If you've even been to the city where America's current president used to reside, it's a mellow but beautiful city. We stayed on the Magnificent Mile, just beside the 360* Chicago building / John Hancock Tower. 
My husband compared Chicago to, NYC's calmer brother, because of the friendly people and city's slower pace about town. 

Here's some photos we took during our week there 

 

 

 
Of course we had to have a Chicago style hot dog minus the ketchup hehehe


 


 
At the navy pier during their 100 year anniversary!

 
At Wrigley field for a cubs game with our hotdogs again hehe 
 
Of course we can't enjoy the game without proper Wrigley Field hotdogs. 
... So much hotdogs during this trip lol haha 

 


 
My favourite buildings in Chicago, the marina city towers. They look like corn on the cob hehe


 

 
Having our first deep dish pizza at giordano's on mag mile. 

 
At the Chicago art museum 

 
Hanging out where Batman was filmed. 

 

 
The famous Chicago Bean aka Cloud Gate. 


Well that's about it folks!! I hope you enjoyed our mini trip to the USA :)

Time for Tea Designs - September!




Hi guys!
I hope you're all well! I'm so ecstatic to share with you all the new images from Time for Tea Designs! For this card I used geeky glasses.... She's so sweet!

I coloured this digital image with copics and with my wink of stella glitter pen. I imagined this 'studious' girl to be an international student studying somewhere in Europe; so I used my MME traveler paper pad and stacked 4 layers of card stock for my card... with some recollection pearls on the side. 

So head over to Time for Tea Designs to get her!!! See you all soon!

Hello, Sunshine State!

Hi everyone!
I hope you're all well! My hubby and I just came back from Orlando, Florida! Which is also known as the Sunshine State, how adorable! It make me so happy just thinking about it :) 

We ended up spending several days between the Universal Studios resort and Disney World Resort. 

Flying the red eye flight from Vancouver -> Toronto -> Florida was pretty easy... Except for all the babies we sat with. Yikes! I've never heard so many babies cry in unison. Lol

Anywho, we ended up staying at the Cabana Bay Beach Resort in Universal Studios to save time with transportation to the parks. It was a 50s themed hotel, that reminded me of Dexter's apartment from the TV show hehehe 

The front area was so large, that several huge Palm trees can fit inside the main lobby. 

Anywho, the main reason for our stay at Universal Studios was to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!!!

I'm a huge Harry Potter fan since I was in the 7th grade and grew up reading the books. I'll attach some of the photos I took from the theme park. 

This was the knight bus in front of the park.

This was taken inside the Leaky Cauldron Restaurant (you can see the leaky cauldron behind all the people eating... and it actually has a crack)

Our first butterbeer from the Leaky Cauldron of course ;) with the souvenir mugs 

Weasley's Wizard Wheezes store across the Leaky Cauldron! 

We had the Toad in a Hole and Fish Pie as our first meal at the Leaky Cauldron. The service was really fast and there were LOTS of seats.

Inside Gringotts Bank

We also had to buy pumpkin juice and gilly water. The pumpkin Juice was OK, and the gilly water was just plain water LOL

sign outside the Leaky Cauldron

First night at florean fortescue's ice cream parlour;
I had butterbeer ice cream and the hubby had, salted caramel and apple crumble :)

#12 Grimmauld Place, London ... Where Sirius Black grew up heheheh look you can see Kreacher the house elf looking out from the second floor window. 

Hogwarts Castle the following day.

Inside the 3 broomsticks


Cauldron Cake from Honeydukes 

Of course we had to go back and try chocolate and taste ice cream with chopped nuts 


Here's a photo of the Gringotts Bank and the dragon that exhales fireballs. 

In front of the Universal's Globe
--- 

We also stayed at Coronado Springs inside the animal kingdom of Disney World 

There's an alligator living in this lake (which Disney didn't tell their guests, we found out through another guest... Yikes!)


Cinderella's castle in Magic Kingdom 




The tree of life in animal kingdom 

Giraffes during our Kilimanjaro Safari 

a couple of zebras mooning the safari folks LOL

EPCOT!

Flower and garden festival at Epcot
