Isn’t this banner so fun and colourful? I love colours and to do colouring so I’m thrilled to be part of this blog hop. I often colour just for the fun of it and end up with lots of images ready for card making, it’s such a lovely way to have some me-time and clear your head.

I have had the Pattern Play-Circle stamp for ages but never used it so I thought why not try it for this project with my Artist Markers

PFS July Release Blog Hop Banner

I created a card using the Merry & Bright Toy Shop and let me tell you – it has my heart in a time warp….  I didn’t have much growing up, so I lived vicariously through Christmas movies and this card reminds me of that feeling!

The Merry & Bright die cuts and embosses the card front to resemble the front of a toy shop – how cool is that?!  The details are so intricate.  I could’ve left this layer bright and white, but I decided to give it some color using Copics.  Instead of writing down the colors, I’ve taken a photo to give you a visual of all the colors…

This is such a beautiful way to look at every situation! So many times I miss opportunities to be kind because I am tired, annoyed, stressed, etc. Thanks Marvelyne Engel​ for the reminder to always be kind even when you least feel like it, it may be the only good thing that happens to someone that day, week, month, or even year.

a little misadventure

I boarded a recent early morning flight already tired. As I settled into my seat a woman approached carrying a screaming infant and a tantruming toddler.

I knew what was next – they were destined to sit near me. I’m pretty sure it’s in my frequent flyer profile that anyone loud, stinky, annoying, snotting and eating smelly food must sit by me.

And here she comes – settling in to the seat right in front of me.

I have been that woman, I had empathy! But that didn’t make me less tired or less… ok. aggravated.
