A little foxy for Colour Me...!

We are celebrating autumn over at Colour Me...! again this week with some subtle, neutral shades. 


I decided to use a retired single stamp from Stampin' Up! that I haven't used in ages. I just love this little cutie! I stamped him in Cajun Craze cardstock and highlighted a few areas with the lightest Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities. For the belly and face and use Ivory, Nude and Neutral from the skin tone Blendabilities set. I cut out the belly/face and adhered them onto the Cajun cardstock.

I can't for the life of me remember what these little cards are called... Heidi Baks introduced me to these fun mini cards a long time ago, but I haven't created one in a long time!

Check out the challenge this week:

Celebrating numbers at MDS Monday!

I am hosting this week over at MDS Monday, and I have a pretty simply sketch with a little added challenge; adding in a number!


I decided to use this awesome photo of my son that his daycare provider took of him. It is a rare 'quiet' moment in Jack's life, so I wanted to make the page quiet and calm as well. 

Check out the sketch this week:

Nutty for Colour Me...!

This week at Colour Me...! we are going Striking and using Night of Navy and Tangelo Twist. I can't stop making Christmas cards, so that's where I went with this combo as well.



My son thought the 'nutty or nice' saying was just the funniest thing. I have to admit, I really do love this stamp set! And it's so much fun to colour... so many options. If you don't have Santa Stache, you should definitely consider it!

Museum of Science & Tech for MDS Monday!

Long time no blog! I was having some computer issues, which have now been resolved. I'm in the process of updating as much as I can now! This week is 'getting back on track' week :)

This week at MDS Monday, Jeanna is keeping us playful with her first sketch as part of the DT! It's a super fun one.


I had a rare day off with my littlest little boy back in September and we went to the Museum of Science & Technology here in Ottawa. A week later, the museum was closed 'indefinitely' due to mould (sad day for Ottawa!), so we were super excited to have gotten in one last time.

Jack's favourite part was the cars, and the 'circuit' maze... and the trains... and the snowmobile ride... and.... :)
