A new week and some new shouts!




My friend Bela from CROPPERSTIMEZONE frequently hosts Kards for Kids which members of her group participate in to donate the cards to TORONTO SICK KIDS HOSPITAL! These cards bring such joy to everyone! The kids have access to them so they can send a card to someone and the staff have access to them to add some joy to someones day!
Altered notebooks are great for taking notes and memos about medications etc! I crated the notebooks above and also some of the cards for Bela to take to SICK KIDS! I love the idea of giving joy to someone with something that brings me joy!
If you would like to be part of a down-to-earth group come over and say hello to Bela, myself and the other wonderful girls!

Many of the projects i do are done on the go! I bring something to do on the bus and on my breaks! The UHU glue stik comes in handy for this! It is small, portable and reliable! No worry of messes or spills! The cards and 4 small notebooks were done on the go and the UHU glue stik never let me down! I also recieved a sample of UHU TAC and discovered it is great for popping embelishments on cards! you can use as little as you want (no cutting of adhesives to make the sticky smaller) When making kards for the kids embellishments and small pieces cannot be added to the cards so I dont have a UHU TAC Embellished card to show at this time! UHU TAC is great to attach "works of art" to the fridge and to post reminders!
Wishing you all a happy scrappy day!
