I am really getting sick of all this rainy weather! I'm glad we got one day of sun this weekend, but I really wish Father's Day would've been a little sunnier.

My son and I woke my husband at 10:30am with hugs and kisses followed by a small gift (my husband worked till 3am). We kept Father's day pretty low key with his favourite lunch at a Vietnamese restaurant.  The card above was his Father's day card.

My husband is a police officer with the Ottawa Police Service. It is a job he loves and is very proud of the work he does. The first set I had to buy from the new catalogue, obviously had to be the "You're my Hero" set.

There are so many different ways I can create cards with this set as my SIL is also going to school for paramedic.

My mom will be here on Friday evening  and I am very excited. She is coming by herself and will be here for 5 days. It will be a busy 5 days, but my son will love getting to spend time with just Grandma.

I hope to post more throughout the week. I have been slacking with my creativity lately and I'm hoping that I find inspiration soon!

I held my very first Open House on the weekend! I was so excited to have people come out and want to make a card and browse the new catalogue. Everyone the came was able to pick up their new Catalogue and socialize with each other as well make a card using new products!

I am very happy with how the card turned out! It brings a smile to my face everytime I look at it. I haven't had much time to stamp lately and the one day that I sat down and made this card, it all came together after one try!

Girls were also able to browse my retired products and pick out a few things to take home with the purchase of new items from the catalogue! I placed an order with them and I'm so excited to receive new items to create with. A few of the items that I ordered include the new Designer buttons in Subtles, the Subtle Designer Paper Stack, the 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon in Crisp Cantaloupe & the Flower Shop Bundle!  

Anyways, now I'm off to make a wedding card for a wedding we are attending on the weekend. I'm going to use a technique I saw in the new catalogue and hopefully have it posted for you all by next week (I've been slacking on the posts lately).

BTW, next class is on June 26th and I have updated the pages at the top. If you are looking for any retired products, I have posted most of what I'm selling.
