This weeks Inspiration Challenge is Rain!  LOL, honestly I live in the Fraser Valley, which is 
on the WestCoast of BC.  We know about rain, I swear 10 months out of the year we
 have rain.  So it was not hard to think about this challenge.  The problem is I came upon 
a Sentiment Stamp by Paper Make Up Stamps about rain that I loved even more. 
 I decided to use that instead and it was digital which won me over even more.  I 
may do some more cards for this challenge we will see as I have oodles of Rain Stamps too.

Don't you just love that saying also?


Over at SplitcoastStampers the are having VSN (Virtual Stamp Night) which includes many different challenges by many great hostesses.  The first on that was posted last night was kind of a thinker for me.  We had to incorporate at globe into our card somehow.  I had to think and think, I went through my stamps and finally found a globe!  It is by Crafty Secrets.  We were also supposed to use green, I failed a that part so I am hoping that this will work for the challenge.

Stamps:  Crafty Secrets
Ink: VersaFine, Vintage Sepia
Cardstock:  from stash
Patterned Paper: from stash
Misc.: pop dots & brads

Well, off to fill up my coffee and start on some more challenges
to see what else I can come up with.

A Finished Piece of Work

I finally got something finished :) I love knitting and only know really some basic stuff but I still think the Cowl turned out great!  Not so sure about the colors but I am trying to use up the yarn I have.  What do you think?

I can never seem to get my variegated colors to work for me no matter what I do.

Here is the matching headband too.

I have to admit that these are great Fall colors, but on the other hand it is not Fall and we are all looking
forward to some Springtime around here.

Bates Motel

I am not sure how many of you watch the show Bates Motel.  But I love it!  I recently caught up on all of Season One just to make sure I know exactly what is going on.  But this is the exciting part... Season Two starts tonight!   Super Excited.  

The other exciting part is.... This show is filmed about a 20 minute drive from my house.  I love watching the show ans trying to pick out areas I know :) 

How super cool is that?

One thing you will learn about me is I am seriously a coffee addict.  Flavoured coffee, plain coffee, Tim Hortons Coffee, Starbucks Coffee you name it.  I love it.

A New Leaf

I have gone through a lot of changes within the last couple months.  Trust me some big ones.  My now focus will be me.  Loosing weight, eating healthy and getting finances in order.  That means more exercise, better eating and no more silly spending and using what I have here.  Especially my crafting items.

I am a Scrapbooker, Cardmaker, Crocheter, Knitter, CrossStitcher plus I want to learn how to Quilt.  How many others find themselves doing every kind of craft out there.  I also love to cook.  So that is the kind of stuff you be seeing here.  I love comments so please bring them on.

Thank you for sharing all these adventures with me and have a great day :)
