~another birthday card~

Here I am to share a birthday card I made following the sketch over at CPS and the colour challenge at Stacey's curtain call.

Not much into halloween here in Australia (although I have noticed it is getting advertised more and more each year) so I made a birthday card, it's always handy to have some spares!

Thanks for stopping by, hope your having a fabulous (and crafty) week! xxx

~seasons greetings~

Here is another Christmas card in non-traditional colours. I based it on the great sketch over at EBTKS.

Not usually a fan of so much orange but still had the paper on my desk from a previous card.
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend! xx

~a happy birthday~

I've got a birthday card to share combining a fab sketch from cardabilities and great colour combo at Stacey's curtain call act 52.

Mostly stampin' up products used here today, but that shiny binding is martha stewart brand, found it in a clearance basket in spotlight! Love a bargain!
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your weekend! xx

~seasons greetings~

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Today I'm sharing a card I made based on Kazan's fabulous sketch 63 over at 2S4Y and Colour Throwdown #114. I've used some lovely new October Afternoon paper I purchased from The Stamp Spot online store, and a new sentiment stamp set and old olive ribbon from stampin' up. Nothing like something new to inspire creativity!

Well I really need to go and defrost something for dinner... so happy it's the weekend!
Take care and happy crafting xx

I made this card last night using Card Patterns Sketch 84.
Quick and easy, using some lovely paper from basic greys sugar rush 6x6 paper pad which came from The Stamp Spot online store.

Thanks for stopping by, and if you have time please check out pillow box in the other post today, I'd love to hear what you think! xx

~Challenge 23 @ ECP~

This morning I have some DT work to share with you. The new challenge this fortnight over at ECP is
Here in Australia we don't celebrate Halloween so I have no supplies and wasn't quite sure what to make.
I found inspiration when my daughter brought home a party bag filled with lollies, and after she tore the bag open we had to find something else to put them in.
Then I spied a pillow box I had made for Christmas last year and thought I could make new one!
So here is what I came up with:

All supplies besides the button and rhinestones come from stampin' up, and I also used a labels 4 nesty.
I tried to use halloweenish colours (if there is such a thing) and I'm sure Aimee will be happy with the result! And I'd love to know what you all think!

On the family side of things, we're heading back down to the hospital tomorrow to keep John company, he is allowed out in the afternoons as long as he takes it easy and keeps his hand elevated. We have done so much driving back and forth these last few weeks, it will be nice to fall back into some sort of routine once he gets home. Fingers crossed he is discharged on Sunday.

Well thanks for stopping by, and if you celebrate halloween (and maybe even if you don't!) I hope you can play along with us over at the ECP challenge blog this fortnight!
Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend xx

~friend to friend~

Just a quick one, I have so much going on at the moment around here, but I managed to squeeze in a little crafty time last night and this morning :)

This card combines Laura's fab sketch over at 2S4Y and Staceys Curtain Call colour challenge.

Those rhinestones are more of a goldy orange colour, the camera picked up the colour funny they sorta look lime in the photo.

Fabulous sketch, may have to save it in my go-to folder for when I'm lacking motivation.

My John is back in hospital... 2 more operations on his hand this week. Hoping he will be home before the weekend, it's our first wedding anniversary on Sunday... which reminds me I still have to make him a card!

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your week! Take care (especially when mowing the lawns!!) xx
