Tea for Two

The other day I visited a wonderful tea store and purchased coconut almond rooibos tea. It is amazing! You must try some when you see it in your local tea store. I have added two more cards to the tea collection from Renaissance by Design. I hope you take the opportunity to visit their site.

We are going to the Zoo!

This time of year was my favourite time to go to the zoo when our girls were small. The temperature was great, the animals were lively and it just made for a great day adventure. So here are some fun cards I created using stamps from the Unity Stamp Company.. This is my first set from Unity, a Momma's Day present from my daughter. They are great durable red rubber stamps and they were awesome to colour with my tombows. More creatures will be sure to follow!

Tea Time

Tea is one of those drinks that passes the test of time as a wonderful way to soothe the soul. It can invigorate, calm , or even be used to celebrate life's moments. This stamp set is from Renaissance by Design It is an amazing company owned by Devon that creates beautiful stamps in Canada. Yeah for Canadian creators! Her stamps come beautifully packaged in tins and I am so impressed with the images and phrases that I know that Renaissance by Design will become a new favourite for me. I will be posting more images later that were created with some of the other sets. So enjoy a soothing cup of tea today - it is raining cats and dogs here today so a good day for something warm to drink. Enjoy!

Mojo Monday 86

The world of Mojos has been the greatest inspiration for me. When I have a template I run up to my loft and pull out all my odds and ends of paper and think about what I can create. It is great way to use up tidbits! This time I watercoloured three pictures from Sunshine Designs with tombows and I must say I will be sad to see Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze leave the SU lineup. Hard to believe they can come up with new colours that will be as popular. Thanks for looking!

Happy Momma's Day

Wishing all a very Happy Momma's Day! Being a momma is truly the greatest gift of all - and the only role that will give you the affirmation that you need in life. I wanted to share the gift of flowers that my daughter Adi sent me. I LOVE gerber daisies - I think I would like to create gerber daisy stamps one cay. Aren't they gorgeous! So enjoy your day - enjoy those around you.

The past few days the buds on the trees are popping out, the flowers are starting to open their eyes to the sun, and you can hear the buzz of lawnmowers in the neighbourhood. So spring is here!!!! I decided to watercolour some great stamps from Krista Schneider who is the creator of Sunshine Designs. I love colouring her images because they come to life when you blend the colours. Enjoy the smells and colours of spring.
