The Journey

It's my grandsons birthday and he is turning 21.  He has decided to leave Burlington, Ontario and move to Calgary, Alberta.  He has a truck and a trailer as shown on the card.  We hope that he will be able to get suitable lodging and work when he arrives.  Don't know if he is taking his dog with him or leaving it for mom to look after until he gets settled.  His girl friend was transferred to Calgary by the Company she works for.  I do hope everything will work for them and that they will enjoy their new surroundings. Should take them three or four days to get there.

Used a google map as the background for my card - the route shown is the shortest one even though it takes them through the U.S.  (Hope they both have passports.)  Just added three sentiments and the truck silhouette along with the red dot stickers.

He does have a job here and I hope that he will be able to pick up something in the same line when he gets there.  He will be missed he is such a nice young man.  My friends are always calling him to take junk to the dump or move some furniture for them.

Ghoulish Boy

At last I think I'm ready to start posting again, away for a few days with hubby and then company over the Thanksgiving weekend.  Great weekend visiting with family, and enjoying too much food and drink!   Even felt better so that I went out to curl on Tuesday morning we won!  My first game of the season, got spares until my leg healed.

This image is from  Mo's Digital Pencil and was so much fun to colour with my Copics and I paper pieced the clothes.  Spellbinders die cut and used Hero Arts little inker for the background colour inside the die cut.  DP from K& Company - stamped sentiment and cat from my stash.

Flowers of Friendship

These pretty flowers are a digital image from Two for Tuesday, one of their wonderful free images.
I used my new Spellbinders die to frame the image and coloured the flowers with my copics.  The sentiment is on chipboard, and I added the brown pearls and one gold rhinestone also from my stash.
Don't know how but I missed the date, but this was quite late arriving at the destination!

Have to catch up with several more cards, so must get busy!  It seems some months there are so many more Birthdays than others, and then there is Halloween and Christmas!  Time does fly by!

Fairy Princess

Beautiful Image for a young lady turning 12.  Coloured with copics, fussy cut, Glossy Accents added to wings and Lady bug.  Background cardstock covered with a piece of netting with pale blue flowers, and small flower sequins with pearl dots added on one side.  Petaloo flower coloured with metallic paint. Charm from stash.
Have not made many cards, sore back and leg,  but pain only in leg now so must be getting better!  Couldn't seem to concentrate on anything for too long but hope that has changed too.  Very cold here to-day and rain most of yesterday, it really is feeling like fall.
