Here is a layout that I did for Prima's monthly sketch contest. There are SO many amazing entries, I can tell you now that I will not be winning, but nevertheless, it's great to have some inspiration from Prima. :)
Bye for now.

Now comes all the Thank You cards. I really tried to keep it simple, and I found that using an embossed image that I could sand, gave a nice effect and looked pretty cool. :) Again, the sentiment is printed.
And now for this year's Christmas cards - I made about 40 of these, and they came together quite quickly. One night, watching TV, I used my Spellbinders to cut out all the circles. The stamps are Gel-a-tins ornaments and the sentiment is a Kim Hughes stamp by Cornish Heritage Farms. To save time, I bought pre-folded cards of all different colours, by DCWV. I found them at HomeSense for 7.99. I would do this again in a heart beat.
And for some great news - I made the design team for Scrapbook Star, an on-line shop and retail store in Montreal, Quebec, starting in January 2010. I am very exciting to be creating again on a design team - and they have monthly kits too! Being pregnant while working full-time drained me of all creativity, but now I'm pumped to get started again!
And now - time to attend to the little one.

Will is by far, the chubbiest Langdon baby, beating out his siblings by a whole pound! I guess that's what an extra 11 days will do for you in utero. Everyone is happy, healthy and tired, but we are all in love with our little blessing.

For some scrappy stuff - I made this tri-fold card for my sister-in-law as she hosted Thanksgiving, which is always A LOT OF WORK! Unfortunately, those with bigger houses tend to get stuck with the job.
I used Bo Bunny yummy paper for the inside, outside, and envelope. I made about 6 cards in total from a couple sheets from this line and I am in love with the pinks and oranges, the trees, the NOT TOO FALL colour scheme.

My Special Card for World Card Making Day:
I wanted to make something special to share with you today. A warm and cozy card that looks homemade and is filled with love!
About the Card:
I used fabric to hand cut a heart, used Mod Podge to glue it to the cardstock, applied Distress Inks around it, and then some rub-on stitches from Daisy d's. The stamp from Unity Stamp Co. was stamped onto a clear card sheet with black Staz-on, and the image coloured with Copic Markers. To make the black text stand out more, I applied Brilliance Moonlight ink to the back of the clear sheet.
Thanks for your visit and I look forward to seeing what you do to celebrate this special day!

For the Memory Box, I went to a cigar store in Yorkville in Toronto, and picked up a used cigar box for $2.00. Otherwise, they would just throw them out. She would appreciate this as she is an avid recycler! I covered it with paper that we used for some of her wedding invites, an embroidered "K" I found at Fabricland, and Prima Crystals. I also covered the sides with Bazzill Bling cardstock, Prima velvet ribbon, and a Melissa Frances keyhole.

For some scrappy goodness, I found these envelopes on sale (4 x 9.5) and in a wonderful lime green, and used that as a starting point for my card. I also got Jen Burt's Bee's Baby Soap (which I highly recommend for a gentle soap for babies). Thinking of a new set I got from Cornish Heritage Farms, "Sweet Bee", the concept for this card all came together.
