Beep Beep

Sylvie @kaliscards is sharing one more project with us as our spring guest.


Hi everybody!

Today is my last feature on the blog. Today’s card is to say good bye and give a big thank you to Julie and Karen for inviting me. I would also like to thank you all for your likes and many sweet comments. It has been a wonderful experience guest designing for YNS!

Thank you so much for joining us Sylvie! We are hoping to see many more of your YNS creations in the future. You knack for combining sets and creating fresh and fun scene cards is inspiring. Thanks for sharing your creative with us all!!! Be sure to visit Sylvie on Instagram @kaliscards.

Pride Month Giveaway

Today we are celebrating Pride Month. I truly believe what the banner above says…LOVE IS LOVE and when you find love your life changes forever and sometimes it’s in a different package than expected. Are you ready for my love story?

Over 2 years ago my husband and I separated; I was happy on my own taking care of our 2 beautiful children, the business and home until I met someone really special who changed my life and taught me what love really is…her name is Judi. I met Judi 19 months ago and I’ve been hiding this relationship for too long. Judi has shown me what it’s like to live again and we’ve survived a pandemic together which brought us even closer. She helped me rediscover the outdoors which I somehow forgot about. I know that may sound strange but I love hiking, biking and kayaking…I haven’t done these things in over 10 years.

It’s important to me to also mention that my kids love her. She has a 7 year old daughter who is best friends with my daughter Jessica, which has been a blessing through this pandemic.

It’s been a crazy year with so many emotions and with us living in what feels like constant lock down in Ontario. I’m so grateful to have someone so strong and loving by my side. I have to admit that I’m such a private closed off person when it comes to social media so sharing my story is a big step for me. Thank you for being here, thank you for reading this and thank you for allowing me to be me. 

Now who’s ready for some awesome RAINBOW inspired projects by the DT and a GIVEAWAY!!!!
