>Ben’s birthday card – Carte de fête de Benoit

> This is the card I made for my brother. It’s his birthday today but he received the card yesterday. Cette carte a été faite pour mon frère. C’est sa fête aujourd’hui mais il l’a reçue hier.   Sometimes, when I want to make a card and I don’t have an idea, I look for a sketch or colour combination to get me started. Well, for this one, I did both. The colour combination is from the Color Throwdown challenge #106: soft sky, chocolate chip, kraft and certainly celery. I added white and silver brads but the rest is that … Continue reading >Ben’s birthday card – Carte de fête de Benoit

>Shaved head scrapbook page – Page scrapbooking tête rasée

> I can’t believe that this is only my second scrapbooking page this year (the first one was back in January!) At the beginning of the year, one of my goals was to scrapbook more. So, to achieve this goal, I will be doing at least one page per month until the end of the year. And I will mostly be using photos that are already printed. J’ai peine à croire que ceci n’est que ma deuxième page de scrapbooking cette année (la première était en Janvier!) Au début de l’année, un de mes buts était de scrapbooker plus. Alors, … Continue reading >Shaved head scrapbook page – Page scrapbooking tête rasée

>CeeCee’s Colour Challenge

>My friend Catherine (also known as CeeCee) has issued a colour challenge on her blog. This is her third one and I decided to participate in this one. I don’t have the Stampin’ Up! colours so I improvised with what I had on hand. I did use a stamp and a rub-on from SU! though! The stamp says: Always on my mind – forever in my heart. Pretty, no? The card is pretty simple but I like it. Continue reading >CeeCee’s Colour Challenge

>Chaque fleur…

>I’m signed up on quite a few swaps these days over at ATCSforALL. So that means, working on art for other people. Of course the Daily Art Cards are made for me but it’s still not “creating for the sake of creating.” So last night, while talking and hanging out with mom, I decided to make a card. All papers, stamps and ribbon are Stampin’ Up! Brads are from my mom’s stash. What do you think? The saying goes: Every flower is a smile from nature. Works for any occasion! I’m hoping to make a few cards to maybe sell. … Continue reading >Chaque fleur…


>Remember when I was saying that I’ve taken the No Stuff challenge? I’m really struggling right now. My favourite online shop just got some new goodies and I am SO tempted to treat myself. Maybe I will… just a little bit… I’ll keep thinking about it until the weekend. I’ve been noticing a lot of synchronicity (or synCROWnicity as Pam puts it!) lately. I’ve been having a lot of strange dreams and I’m sure there’s a message somewhere in there. Recurring themes and images. One word that’s been coming back for the past couple of days is Renaissance. As in … Continue reading >Synchronicity

>Christmas Eve

>Tonight I’m having dinner with my parents and my brother and as is our tradition, we are opening gifts together. Tomorrow, I’m going with my parents to celebrate with my mom’s side of the family. My brother isn’t going with us because he is working. These small packages will be sent after Christmas. I stamped on the envelops with stamps from the Carte Postale set from Stampin’ Up! I love the bird and the fleur-de-lys. They are just perfect! Merry Christmas… and watch this space in 2 posts (hopefully before the new year!) Continue reading >Christmas Eve
