Feb=Luv, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hello peeps,

Today I bring you another Valentine's day card, very cute and fun, lots of layering and punches - the birdies, doily heart, it's just fab :) I have been trying to channel Tara Anderson her style is amazing, lots of layering, you can see here work HERE.
Also, today it's really snowing a lot! Took me a good 15-20min to scrape my car windows, it was covered in thick ice :S But, I managed to make it to french class ...
Well, let me know what you think, I think this card will be a one of 3 cards that will be made with my peeps, I'm hoping to have a couple friends over and make some Valentine;s day cards, they are excited!!! I'm excited too :) Although, I think I will make a slight change, the bingo card has to be repositioned straight, I was trying to give it more edge but it just look crooked :S If you want scrap supplies list, click on the pic.

Take it easy,
Clouds :D

The usual stuff

The usual stuff, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hey there peeps,

Hope yer Sun is going well. I didn't have to work today so it was wonderful to sleep in. Thank you so much for pitching in yer 2 cents on my previous post - the dilemma concerning my noisy neighbors. So perhaps I shall indulge and let you know that once again Scott and I made to the leasing office and well, they are trying to take care of it and I think that the people above us are moving soon, we hope this is real soon, for the sake of my sanity!

Anyhoot, the page, made with my JB Jan paper crafting kit which can be found HERE. Lots of fun paper to work with, cute elements and other JB embellies which can be found at their online store. (it may sound as if I'm advertising their shtuff but I'm not, hehe) The pic is of me and my fav fav scraf, so soft and colorful! I'm taking a french class this semester since Scott and I are planning on our Europe trip this year. The french language is something I've always been fascinated with, and find it easy to grasp. Thank goodness this time I have friends who know french, so it helps, they are wonderful and cheering me on. It's heaven, learning another language, hopefully I can master it in the future....Flickr post, so click on the pic for complete list of supplies.

Au Revoir ;D

Friend's Affection and New Blog.

Friend's Affection, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hey there peeps,

I hope yer wkend went well, not much on my end 'cept work and more work. Today I bring you a card that was meant for a pub call but didn't get accepted so I figured I'd post it instead. Lots of JB stuff, friends theme and real cute. I really like the Studio Calico Dress Form stamp, perfect for the card. Do you likey?

Couple things before I go, this might be sort of long post so hold on there ... :)

1. My host sister (long time ago) Brittany Meek has just recently created a brand new cute card blog, which can be reached HERE, here blog is called Darling Creations and she writes about herself so you can get to know her. She's just started out and I want you all to show her some luv and go by here blog and welcome here, cuz that's what we do rite? Remember when we all started out and it was wonderful when you got yer first few comments and it was nice to know that people know yer out there? I'm sure you do, so lets show here some luv and let her know we care!

2.. I need help with something, or at least advice. So we- Scott and I live in an apt complex, we are on garden level, so that means people live above us. For the last 5 yrs we've been here, we've liked it, real nice and quiet. Last yr though, a family moved in, they are real heavy set and since they have young kids, they move around a lot and unfortunately, we can hear their every step, where they are in the apt and it goes on till late at nite around 2a in da morning. It's hell, especially since I'm a lite sleeper. We;ve made our rounds to the leasing office, they have let it come to their attn and we've had to knock on their door to let them know that they are rowdy. I know they are young kids, but this happens 24/7 and even late at nite, they've said they;re sorry and they'll try to keep in down but I dunn think they get it. We've been real nice about it, gone the right way to address this but it's not enough. At times, I swear one of them will crack the roof with all their walking around and fall on top of us :S it's really that bad. So, they are not cooperating, and it's not fun coming home anymore. I rarely post personal stuff on my blog, but I am not sure what my next move is, have any of you come across anything like this? I need some advice. Help!!?!?! Anything will be greatly appreciated!

Take it easy,
C :)

Moments spent with him, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hello there peeps,

Happy Friday to ya, today was the perfect day to scrap, since I got my Epson PictureMate for Xmas :) So now I can print pics on the spot, it's so small and portable and doesn't take much space in my craft area. This page is made with Jenni Bowlin goodies, because he's worth it :) I really like how the page turned out, I really like clean line and luved how every element fit together. This pic was taken while enjoying a nice lunch at Sushi Tokoro, a Japanese owned sushi place, all mom-and-pop nook! They are they sweetest family and are always welcoming, and they're not afraid to say, all bluntly - "You lost weight,!!!" err, ok, well thank you very much for noticing there mom and pop :)

Happy Valentines

Happy Valentines, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hey there peeps,

Another card today, real cute, pretty and red :) I'm on a roll here to make valentine's cards because for some reason, I kinda like the occasion. Funny story ... while at work I was sharing with my coworkers that this yr Scott and I will celebrate 5 yrs of marriage (funny how time flies, I still can't believe it's been that long :) and that;s the reason why I tend to go all out for Valentines and well as cheesy as it sounds, my parents got married on Feb 14th. So one of my co-workers (she really should be a motivational speaker ... errr) says that the average marriage lasts 5 yrs!?!/?! I was like, Oh! Ok! Thank you for the grim future that lies ahead for my marriage :S hehe, some people I tell ya! :) I laughed, I told her she shouldn't work at a suicide hotline or some place like that, those poor people don't stand a chance!

The card, lots of goodies, Jenni Bowlin, Making Memories, the whole shi-bang! :) For complete list of supplies click on the pic. Let me know what you think, do you likey?

Take it easy,
C :)

Adore ... XOXO

Adore ... XOXO, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hey there peeps,

Happy New Years to you all, I hope that this year brings us as much craftiness and creativity as the year before :) New Yrs resolution? not quite, I'm not the kind of person to set myself up for failure. I try to be realistic about what I can and can't do, but i do hope for a few things, for my blog - to just blog more and craft more, and I think that will be doable :) How about you? Is there something you want to accomplish this yr or attempt to? I'd like to know :)

Ok, the card, I love-y!!! Like any crafter out there who moves on to the other occassion so am I :) A very vintage-y valentine/love card, I really like how the red seam binding just pops out, cute embellies and well, Jenni Bowlin bingo card that cannot be missed! Let me know if you likey, and if you have any questions about supplies, email me or just click on the pic for complete list of supplies :)

Take it easy,
Clouds :)
