When your best friend is a cat...

I'm ending the year on a bit of a sad note, but I'm OK with that. Means that 2019 will be better and brighter right? Some friends lost their dear kitty just after Christmas, and I wanted to send them an extra special card. I put this together with some new products and some existing favourites. It doesn't have to be a sympathy card, but in this situation it just seemed to fit.


Did you notice that those heart epoxy drops are coloured in? You can make embellishments any color you want by colouring them with Stampin' Blends!

Another day another Christmas card I mass produced! This one was greatly aided, and inspired by, November’s Paper Pumpkin kit. I cut the paper down to make these notecards and used left over pieces to get more bang for my buck! #CraftyMedic #craftygram #stampinup #stampinupcanada #paperpumpkin #toyouandyours #christmascards #handmadechristmas #handmadecards via Instagram https://ift.tt/2GvtuEE

Wednesdays with the West Coast Creators

If you've been following my Instagram, you'll have seen that I'm madly scrambling to get over 200 Christmas cards out this week. What I didn't mention is that I'm not even home! I'm staying at my parents' so I've had to pack up the supplies I though I'd need and am working from that. Well for the West Coast Creators challenge this week I pulled together a bunch of bits and bobs to make a card from a sketch... And somehow it worked out! Here's my card, literally pulled together in five minutes from the scraps I had sitting on the desk (and very limited access to any additional supplies).

Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop - December


Welcome to my part of the blog hop! If you missed the intro elsewhere, this is a blog hop where the participants are all taking part in Kylie Bertucci's demonstrator training program in 2018-2019. We're learning so much, so this is a fun little break from all of the business to share some of our creativity.

This month I decided to use this platform and the additional attention it gets my blog to do some good. I recently started using the hashtag #StampingDiversity to try to bring some attention to the amazing diversity our crafty friends bring to our lives. Many of my friends around the globe celebrate holidays that we don't have stamp sets for, or have occasions in their lives that you can't always find a commercial sentiment for. Over the next while (maybe weeks, maybe months, hopefully years) I will be sharing my creations with this hashtag and I hope you do too!

So my card this month is a little out of season, but one I've been looking forward to making. I have family who is from India so I'm familiar with some of their holidays and celebrations. Holi is one that just seems to lend itself to cards! I sort of CASEd this one from Gisela Suski who made a Holi card for my swap at On Stage, so I do need to thank her for the extra inspiration. If you don't know what Holi is, here's the description from Wikipedia, and you'll find a lot more if you search for it as well:
Holi ( /ˈhl/Sanskritहोली Holī) is a Hindu spring festival, originating from the Indian subcontinent, celebrated predominantly in India, but has also spread to other areas of Asia and parts of the Western world through the diaspora from the Indian subcontinent, also known as the "festival of colours" or the "festival of love". The festival signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, end of winter, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships.

I hope you enjoyed my card! You'll find a complete list of products I used and a link to the instructions below the list of other participants in the blog hop. Don't forget to check out everyone else's awesome projects!
