Hello stamping friend!

I hope that you’re enjoying your weekend; it’s another beautiful day here in Vancouver, B.C.

I’ve been working on my cards for the upcoming Watercooler Wednesday and Paper Craft Crew challenges – there’s still time for you to join both of the current challenges for these!  I’m really looking forward to seeing what you’ve created 🙂

See – isn’t it beautiful?  (Actually, I have to admit this picture was taken last year – but it’s the same again this year! 🙂 )

I’ve also been busy doing a lot of research online, as our youngest son, who graduates high school this year, has just been accepted to the University of Liverpool!

Yes, that’s a huge trip away from home (and yes, I’ve already started my weepy moments), but it will be such an adventure for him. All while getting an education, of course!!  I will be making the initial trip with him; to get him settled and also visit some family in Scotland, and do some sightseeing.  So if you have any recommendations on where to stay or visit, please leave me a comment!

So while I’ve been busy doing all this, I wanted to remind you that there’s still today and tomorrow to take advantage of this week’s Weekly Deals!  Remember, this coming Tuesday will be the final week of the Weekly Deals – so take advantage of the awesome discounts while you can!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

  1. Hi Deb, Congratulations to you and your son on his acceptance to university! I am sure you are the reason he has done so well, proud Mama!! Thank you fo the heads up on the current sales. I will miss the weekly deals but I bet SU has something terrific in the wings!

    1. Thanks so much for your congratulations for my son, Laura! He has worked very hard for his good grades, and we’re very proud of him 🙂 (okay, I did do the majority of the nagging
      er, encouragement!) Yes, I’ll miss the weekly deals as well, but as you say – there will be occasional special offers to replace them. Thanks for visiting, and leaving your comment; I do appreciate it!

  2. The Isle of Skye is beautiful. Also the Royal Mile in Edinburgh is great with the castle and the palace. If you are there during the Tattoo, the bagpiping is awesome.

    1. Thanks so much for your recommendations, Sue! I’ve never been to Isle of Skye, but have heard that it’s lovely. I can remember the Royal Mile, and watching the Tattoo at Edinburgh Castle when I was young – the bagpipes are amazing! I’ll have to double-check the timing; I’d love to see it again. Thanks again for your ideas!

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
