I have used some ribbons that can be found in the August ribbon club and I must say I am in love with the measuring tape! 

The Stamp set is Stampin' up and I got it for a bargain price over on facebook Aussie Scrappers Garage Sale... great for off-loading excess craft stash and/or adding to your collection.

~banners and bling, with folding and wings! Thankyou card~

Made a few cards this afternoon thanks to my awesome husband John making tea and playing with the kids. I snuck off to my craft desk and made 6 cards! Here is one I would love to share, so happy with how it turned out!

I punched some 1 1/4 inch circles and folded in half over the twine to create the banner. Fussy cut the butterflies and added some bling to their little bodies... and sponged around the edge of the pretty pattern paper. Finished it off with a thankyou sentiment stamp :)

I'd like to enter it in the banners and flags challenge at Cas-ual Fridays (woops they like you to keep it under 4 challenges combined I missed that bit until I linked sorry ladies x)
 try a different fold challenge over at Speedy Fox and Friends
and make your own embellishments at The Pink Elephant
and the bling it up challenge 231 at CCT
things with wings challenge at The Poodles Parlour
and last but certainly not least.... try a new technique at CardMakinMama's

I will be back tomorrow with my DT project for the new challenge at Feeling Sketchy, I hope you can pop back and check it out :)
take care

~new card for the stamp spot monthly challenge!~

Good morning friends!
Here to share my third card this month using the challenge spots at The Stamp Spot blog!

I'm also entering in the flowers challenge at Crafty Sentiments Designs

and the birthday challenge at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge blog

See my polka dots on the brad? The leaves and the colour orange pretty obvious :)
I have used the royal leaves and flower MFT die-naimcs from the store.
I sprayed the flowers with glimmer mist and scrunched them lightly before poking the brad thru the middle.
I love the confetti white cardstock from SU... sad to see it on the retired list :( 
but I did manage to order 2 extra packs before they sold out.

Well that's it for me, have a sick 4yr old and a snotty clingy almost 2 year old to share my day with :)

Looking forward to the weekend :)
thanks for stopping by today, take care xx

~1 card for 4 challenges~

Good afternoon, here to share a card for the monthly challenge over at The Stamp Spot blog

I'm also entering in the 'tag' challenge at Cute Card Thursday 
'spots' challenge at Speedy Fox and Friends challenge 120
and The Poodles Parlour they want to see die-cuts and I have used 3!

And here is my card....

I've used some leafy vine pattern paper, the polka dotty spotty panel is some packaging from some Pretty Little Studio products i held onto. The 3 die-cuts I used are MFT die-namics rolled rose, royal leaves and the bracket tab. Tag is from TSS but sold out now, and the sentiments are stampin' up for the top and hero arts for the happy birthday. I think thats about it!

Thanks for stopping by and I would LOVE to see you link up your creations using orange leaves and polka dots at The Stamp Spot blog to get your name in the draw for some lovely prizes at the end of the month

~ paper flowers and a bit of bling! ~

Good evening, another card to share as I mentioned in my last post. 

This one is for the paper flowers challenge this month at Unstampabelles
and also for the bling + nature challenge at OCC

both blogs have some amazing inspiration from their DT ladies, be sure to pop across and check them out!

I have used kaisercraft rhinestone strips, rhinestone brads I got on ASGS and die-namics perfect petals with some scraps of stampin up paper and curled the edges slightly. 

Michelle at The Stamp Spot has a huge range of MFT die-namics in the store and has amazing prices, if there is something out of stock you are after let her know as she orders in on a regular basis :)

Left it without a sentiment and could be used for a few different occasions.

Thanks for stopping by today, feeling rather tired so might hit the hay since my darling girls are all sleeping, we have been playing musical beds with the almost-2 and 4 yr olds for a few weeks now and lack of sleep is so draining on mind and body.
