How is your Monday going? I haven't been feeling well for a few days and almost as a "joke", I thought I'd test myself for COVID. What do you know? I tested positive. I felt that I had been careful but clearly not careful enough. I'm feeling much better today and hopefully I'll be back to myself soon. Guess, it gives me lots of extra time at my craft table. Talking about craft tables, it's time for a new challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. Here's our sketch for the next two weeks

How are you doing? Hope you're finding time to craft. There is very little that makes me feel better than playing with paper at my craft table. We have a new challenge at Try Stampin' On Tuesday that we hope will inspire you.

For me, there is something very calming about clean and simple cards. Making clean and simple cards for me is relaxing. None of the fancy layered die cuts and embellishments for me. If you're like me or like to try different styles, we have a new challenge at Addicted to CAS that you might be interested in.

Here I am, going along with my daily things, totally oblivious that it's Monday and not Sunday. That's what happens when here in Canada, it's Thanksgiving. That means that I'm a bit behind schedule. I typically like to have my blog posts written a couple days in advance so I'm not scrambling - like I am now! LOL!

Here's my card
For my card, I used Birch Press Design's Dainty Rose and Leaves Contour Layers craft dies. I die cut the pieces using scraps of cardstock from my stash. I adhered the layers of flowers and leaves together. Then, I arranged them on a natural A2 card base and glued them in place. For a sentiment, I used Papertrey Ink's Keep It Simple: Thank You stamp set which I heat embossed with gold powder.
We love to see your layered creations in our gallery this month.
Thanks for stopping by

Stencils - I love them. For me, it's an easy way to add color to a card. With the layered stencils, it's so easy to add multiple colors without having to cover areas of the stencil. If you're like me and love stencils, we have a challenge starting today for you at Happy Little Stampers ~ Stencil Challenge

Happy Monday friends! In Canada, it's Truth and Reconciliation Day. It's a day to reflect on the children sent to Residential Schools who either never returned home or were subjected to inacceptable conditions. Honestly, I hadn't really thought about it until suspected graves of children were identified around the properties of the former Residential Schools. Residential Schools were designed to assimilate Indigenous children into "Canadian" society. I'm understanding better why some people are "messed" up by this and will offer them more grace.
As it's Monday, it's also time for a new challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. Here's the sketch, we hope will inspire you
I'm happy to share a card today that I sent to my sister for her birthday. She has received it, so I can now share it and not spoil the surprise.
