sweet stop tag

hi ladies!
are you ready for December???
to be honest, I'm not looking forward to it...
I heard it'll be the worst winter for us here on the West Coast of Canada...
oy... I really love rain ...
& the snow is not my best friend...
I'd rather just visit the mountains and go skiing up there if I want to be around snow hehehe...
I prefer walking with my rain boots & my umbrella around the city, while I enjoy that "holiday" feeling =)

(BC is the largest temperate rainforest in the world, and since I live along the west coast our winters are usually milder than the rest of Canada, and if snow falls it doesn't stay long; but I heard we'll have a pretty bad winter this year... =(
*but I'm going to think positively and hope we'll only have a little bit of snow & lots of rain instead hehehe*)

here's my entry for

here's my card

(I was inspired by the twilight tag on TGF - and so I made a mini tag on top of my card heheheh;
its really cold here in Western Canada... well TOO cold for me... its almost 0 degrees right now... and I miss the warmer weather... and I have no idea where autumn went!!! =(
I love autumn too; its my favourite season. Its just cool enough to wear a vest but not COLD enough where your nose freezes off your face LOL.
So now I'm making LOTS of Springtime cards hehehe)

sketching DYSU

hi everyone!!!
hhmmmm... this card was a bit of a challenge...
I didn't know how to put grass in my card LOL
I wasn't sure if I should use some felt and cut it into grass (but I didn't have green felt heehee)
or buy the Martha Stewart grass border punch... but I'm saving my money hehehe
So, I ended up using designer paper with GRASS printed on it!!! YAH!

I entered this card in:
cute card thursday - sketch
and
DYSU - grass 

ENJOY!!!

Here's my entry for
TGF - Step up card

Twinery mini Haul

hi everyone!
so I just got this tiny Haul from the Twinery =)
I wanted to share with everyone how AWESOME the baker's twine I bought from this store.
for $14 with $4.50 shipping/handling I got 240 yards!
I mean, I get charged 50 cents per yard of baker's twine from my local scrapbook store...
I would have to spend $120 for the same amount of twine... that's insane! LOL

So the colour I bought is "Stone - Gray & White Eco-Luxe Baker's Twine"
and they also sent me 4 samples of 4 different colours of their other twines =)
here's some photos of how LARGE this spool is




(I chose this colour because its a neutral and I can use it for any type of card heehee...
I think you girls who love twine should really check them out =) its so worth it!)
