Thank You Sew Much Card


Hi There!

My parents recently celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary! Such an accomplishment and we are all so proud of them! We had a wonderful celebration with close friends and family.

I wanted to make my parents something special and unique for their special anniversary and I knew a friend who did quilting. I’ve always wanted to learn how to hand quilt and so I approached her and asked her if she would teach me. She agreed and I was super excited, I was going to learn how to do quilting.

First thing!!!!! I have a lot more respect for all of you quilting ladies and gentlemen out there!!! I had no idea how much work went into it! LOL! However, I loved the final result and so did my parents and family and that made it all worth it!

As a thank you to my friend Marilyn who graciously put up with all my questions and who assisted me on how to cut the fabric and line it up as well as doing the 3 layer sandwich and then sewing the border, I made her this little thank you card.

Vet Thank You Card


Recently our little girl (cat) Boo was very sick. The amazing staff at Robinson’s Pet Hospital managed to help save her life and make her healthy enough to come back home to us. Since then, she has been doing amazingly well. “Boo” means so much to us and we’re glad that she is back to her old self.

Here is a card that I made to thank the Vet (Dr. Emmanuel Aziz) and his terrific staff.

Used Cricut Design Studio and Cricut Explore to cut out the doctor and nurse are from Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut Cartridge. Stamped their faces with Peachy Keen PK-490 Everyday Character Face Assortment. Used Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen for their eyes and some pink chalk on the cheeks.

The little cat is from Local King Rubber Stamps “Kitty Love (4)” and the matching die Kitty Love (S). Coloured the kitty in with a mixture of Copics and Spectrum Noir markers.

The sentiment is from Craftin Desert Diva’s “Tissue Time”. I re-arranged the sentiment so that it would fit on the card.

The tag is from MFT – Die-namics Pierced Fishtail Flags.

Background paper is from DCWV – The Pets Stack 6.5″ x 4.5″ printed cardstock.

Hope you like it!

Thank You Card


Hi There,

Like to share a Thank You card I made for my neighbour for coming to my rescue the other day. Needed to go in for some minor day surgery and my husband just started a new job and therefore couldn’t take me. My neighbour was so good, she took me to the hospital and stayed the whole time with me. 7 hours in total if you include the drive time. I’ll be eternally grateful. It’s so nice to have great neighbours that you can depend on.

Here is the shaker card that I made for her.
