We all have our little secrets, but I guess this one isn't a secret anymore!

As promised, this is a get well card for my dear friend. I can't claim any creative prowess for this card as it is a lift from the new Stampin Up catalogue. I used the now retired GROOVY GUAVA designer paper and textured cardstock in the matching colour. I think it works and hope she will like it too!

Just thought I would share a couple of pictures of our beautiful little granddaughter in her playhouse and wearing the RCMP paper hat we got when we were at the Sunset Retreat at the RCMP Depot in Regina. We were fortunate to have witnessed this patriotic and inspiring presentation by the cadets of the historic center for training of our national police force. The newly opened and modern designed interpretation center was really interesting and really gave you a sense of the history of our country thru the growth of the RCMP.


My dearest friend, Debbie, is so sweet to ask us to dinner to celebrate our anniversary together. Unfortunately, she injured her shoulder and the dinner was postponed until next weekend. What a trooper!

(I guess this should be a get well card and I may still do that), but this is the one I made to thank her for being such a good friend. It is mostly Stampin' Up products, N. of Navy, Creamy Caramel, Very Vanilla cardstock. The ribbon is retired 7/8 inch navy and creamy caramel grosgrain. The punched edge is a new Martha Stewart punch that IMHA is just great!

I was hoping the stamped image would turn out a little darker for the camera, but I wanted it to be soft. It was coloured with copic markers and brightened with a little Stickles.

I know, I know!

I am sorry it has been so-o-o-o-0000 long since I have blogged here. Life has a way of getting away from you sometimes!

I hope to be putting up some pictures soon of what I have been up to over the months, my travels and, of course, my beautiful granddaughter. Off to work now.
