Making Paper Bows.

I should be packing for my girls creative getaway that my friend Debbie and I go on every year.
But I went into my craft room and got a bit overwhelmed by the chaos.
So grabbed my Envelope Board Punch and made some bows instead.
There is always tomorrow to start packing ;)






















Today Luna had to go to the vet to get her shots.
She went in her carry crate easily and was great during the drive there.
She didn't want to get out of her carry crate though, but once she did, she was a perfect angel :)
It turned out the vet herself, was Luna's foster. So the vet was really happy to see her :)
And was really happy that she got adopted into our family.
Luna was so relaxed in the jeep on the way home, that she actually fell asleep on the drive.






















I hope you all had a Creative Day today :)

Thank You card from Luna

Today we got a thank you card from Luna.
The organizers at Kitty Kare keep in contact with those that adopt from them to see how things are going with our new cutie.
They phoned me yesterday…and today this was in the mail.


















I cried when I read it.

















Honestly I bawled.
I am so sensitive.
Mind you Ashley asked me to text her the note as she was at work.
She said she had to stop reading it as she got teary eyed.

















I have some fun crafty news to share with you, but I will save that for another post :)

Hope you all had a Creative Day :)

Its not easy being green

Look at the pretty tree frog that was at the cottage.
It attached itself to the side of my FIL's cabin.
So pretty.






















And just because its been a few days since I shared a photo of our cutie.
Here is our adorable Luna.
She enjoys slipping behind the chair to watch the goings on in the neighbourhood ;)






















I just felt the need to get a close up.
She is looking at me like "What the heck are you doing lady", lol.

















I was planning on going for a walk tonight with my friend Debbie.
I was on my way there, when she texted me.
So I pulled over..as not only is it illegal to be on your cell phone here, but it is also extremely dangerous and careless.
Well it turned out it was raining at her house.
I U-turned it back home and went on the treadmill. No sooner was I home that it started raining here as well.

Today was a day to tidy our house, so no creating for me.
But I hope you all had a very Creative Day today :)

Coloured image and a peek of our Cottage Life

I thought I would share a bit more of my colouring I did over the weekend.
I didn't bring my paper trimmer, so wasn't able to make any cards.
Ok, truth be told, I can make cards without a paper trimmer, but didn't feel like fussing with a razor knife and a wooden ruler ;)

This image here is from Sarah Kay.
Isn't she so sweet. Reminds me of the "Little House on the Prairie" days.
Or when my girls were young and I use to put these cute bonnets on them :)






















I coloured her up with my coloured pencils and gamsol.
I am really enjoying playing with them :)
Don't get me wrong here, I still LOVE my Copic markers :)
I thought I would share my colour choices with you. I use Blicks coloured pencils, so if you use a different brand I am sure the names and colours will be different.






















I did a video of a card I had made and the last few images that I have coloured.
I also shared a bit of our cottage life in here as well ;)
If you would rather watch it on my YouTube channel, just click the link "Tracy's Treasures24"


I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and that it was a Creative one :)

A New Kind of Stamping Block

I got to colour today :)
It started out as a cloudy day with a bit if rain. So I decided to do a bit of colouring.
I didn't bring my stamp block with me, so I had to improvise. 
When there is a will, there is a way...right!? 
I don't like coffee, so thought this is the best way to use this thing, teehee. 
Not sure how many use the brand "Blick studio" coloured pencils. But thought I would share my colour choices. 
Turned out to be a beautiful day after all. 
Hope you all had a creative day :)

Morning Walk with my Girls

We are heading out to the cottage, so I wanted to get this post up before we left :)
My morning started out with a beautiful walk with 2 of my daughters.
Neither one had to work today, so we decided to go for a walk around Boulevard Lake.
Kristy took this photo, and of course when she sent it to me, she made sure she sent the one where SHE looked good in it, lol.






















Heather was excited when she saw the swings and decided to re-live a bit of her youth ;)
They wanted me to swing as well, but I kind of get a bit dizzy when I do that now….nothing like the dare devil I used to be. Man, getting older sucks, lol.






















I was sad to see that the beach was deserted :(
When I was young I loved going here and spending the whole day. It was always busy.
When my girls were young, we would spend most of the day here swimming and enjoying the treats at the concession stand.

















Today was a beautiful day and here not one kid in the lake.
Even the girls were wondering where everyone was.

















I just had to share this.
We had seen this yesterday while we were doing some errands.
Don't worry, I wasn't driving, Kristy was.
This dog was loving it. I got a chuckle at the dog wearing the goggles…soooo cute, lol.
I am surprised that he/she even kept them on. Any dog I know, would be trying to get them off.
This just made my day.
Its the little things like this that put a smile on my face :)

















I hope you all had a Creative Day:)
Just a tidbit…I didn't make it posting this at home, so hoping I can use some of Wayne's hotspot here at the cottage to post my blog post.
Plus there we hear thunder and it looks like a storm is coming.

Ashley got Engaged!!

Today is an exciting day!!!
My daughter Ashley and her boyfriend Tyler got engaged today :)
It is also their 4 year dating anniversary.
I am so happy for them both :)






















Ashley was so excited, she tried to phone and text us.
But we didn't hear the phone, and cell phones are not allowed at the dinner table so we didn't know.
When I was done dinner she "FaceTimed" us with the news and a photo of her beautiful ring.
As you can see Tyler is over the top happy that she said "yes" ;)


















I am so happy for them, and excited for their future together :)

Tracy :)
