As luck would have it,
I have found myself with some time to craft
and enjoy myself.

Once in a while, I like to use precoloured
digis to create some quick cards that still have
some degree of creativity.

Here I used a digi from Meljens Designs
called 'lovey pup'.

I printed off a few of the digis and created a couple 
of different designs.  Fast, easy and cute.

Having some time for myself, I have been attempting my
Copics once again.  This cross over card has
a hand created chiffon flower and a Copic coloured Tilda.

My friend Jenny is celebrating her birthday this weekend
and we were planning a little overnight trip to
Niagara Falls to take in a show and do a bit of shopping.  
But due to some nasty weather warnings, 
we have decided to cancel our plans.

Here is her card:

Bugsy is almost a year old now and is pretty
much full grown.  So his little ball caps that I made for him
last Summer, no longer fit him.

I am a stickler for protecting his eyes from the sun
just as I do my own, especially when we are on our boat.
I knew that if I waited until the Spring, I probably would not
get new caps made for him in time
for boating season.

Whenever I see fabric that I like, I buy a chunk and
tuck it away for 'something'.  In this case, the something
was new caps and matching bandannas for
my little man.

He has also outgrown his life vest so that will be the next
thing on his wardrobe shopping list.

Thanks for stopping by.

Saying farewell to 2013 was much anticipated 
and much welcomed.

Last year brought many, many lows
but it's behind me now and
time to move forward.

Here are a few of my Christmas creations that did
not get posted.

This was my card that I made for my girlfriends.
Love me a poinsettia!

This little stamp has become one of my favourites for Christmas.
Although I chose unconventional Christmas colours,
I really love how these cards turned out.

And last but certainly not least,
here are a couple of recent BUGSY photos ...

Does this schnauzer like the snow? Ah, that would be a YES!!!

And he has finally decided to use his little bed that I
built for him ...

... as a means of jumping up on the filing cabinet
to get a better view of the street!

BFF's forever!

Thanks for stopping by.
