Happy mid-week, I am having such a wonderful vacation. This morning was a little shopping downtown, then to a few wineries to stock up. I tend to buy a good number of bottles of wine to take home to my husband and we taste them together. Barb and Miles are ever so patient with my as I rattle of my little list of wineries I would like to visit. Every year there seems to be new ones popped up, I have to admit I like the more established ones.

Love this beautiful hot weather, we have spend some quality time down by the lake. There is a storm coming and I am hoping to see some lightning over the lake this afternoon. We don't get much lightning on Vancouver Island so I love a good lighting storm.

Now for a card, I managed to get one done for Clean and Simple Stamping. I made this earlier in the week with my sister Barbs supplies and I think I did ok :).

This is such a fabulous sketch please see Clean and Simple Stamping-FLT152. Again thank you Barb for your fabulous picture taking of my card.

I used my Stamps of Life-friends4ever stamp set for the leaves, I cut them out and embossed them with clear embossing powder. I used 2 layers for the 2D look. I also used this stamp set to enhance the die cut that my sister made with her Silhouette.

I added twine to go with the button and finished with some gems. I am sure I made this a little more complicated then simple but I had such fun making it.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-Memory Skor, The Stamps of Life-friends4ever and getwell2you, misc button,gems and twine.

We found two wonderful craft stores in Kelowna and I ended up spending a little more money then expected, but I don't feel an ounce of guilt and I can't wait to dive in and start using all my new treasures.




  1. Great card Nina! I think one day i will have to try that clear embossing powder as you seem to use it alot and it adds such a nice final touch on everything you do.
