For the Love of Framelits!!

Hello everyone!

What a weekend I have had….actually make that a week! My youngest has come down with a middle ear infection, poor little thing, he was crying so hard and was inconsolable. I HATE that. You feel so useless and you cannot take their pain away. We are just super lucky our Doctor opens at 8am on a Sunday and we can come in without appointment. We got in straight away without waiting and it was our Doctor that was rostered on that weekend too. Extra bonus!! I love our Doctor! It is so hard to find a good one, especially one so good with kids…….Gee I can go on can’t I?!

Anyway, I have this super cute card to share. I made this a little while ago, I actually made a few of them I liked it so much. My new love is the Framelits Dies and matching Stamp Set Apothecary Art. I just wish I had more time to play! LOL!

I used colours Blushing Bride, Regal Rose and Crumb Cake to colour in the Image using a Aqua Painter. I used Water Colour paper for the image and Very Vanilla for the base and textured section. I also used some of the lusciousness that is Blushing Bride Pleated Stain Ribbon. Love these ribbons.

Festive Friday Challenge #20

Hello everyone!

Time for a Festive Friday Challenge. This week we have an Inspiration photo…..a real pretty one at that.

Isn’t that just gorgeous?! It took me a while to think about what I wanted to do. My thought process is so out of whack. All I could see was the Candy Canes, LOL!

This is my creation

As you can see I made some candy canes, lol! I also used the colour scheme and the ribbon. I used the flourish out of the Always Elegant stamp set in the background, the idea was to make the candy canes ‘pop’ off the page and also to make it a bit more elegant. I think I succeeded! I used the stripes embossing folder for the bottom half of the card to break up the simplicity.

Now don’t forget to head on over to Nicole’s blog and submit your creation and share it all with us.

So Grateful!

Hello everyone!

Again long time no post. I don’t know what to say, except I am just not feeling it anymore. I think it has a lot to do with time. I am hardly crafting anymore and I am not sure why. My youngest is now in school and I thought for sure I would have more time to create and play, but I seem to be taking on more things, like I am now working in the uniform shop at the kid’s school on Thursdays and I help out in class each week, sometimes twice. Hubby has also had a change of job which requires him to be away a week at a time and it doesn’t feel right to spend days crafting away. I’m hoping life settles into a rhythm soon that also sees me doing more at my craft desk.

I do however have something to share. It is a card I made for my last ever hostess.

A very quick simple creation, but that seems to be my style lately, lol! So quick in fact that I just coloured the image in with markers….No blending or watercolouring, just whacked those markers on there. I love it! I used Parlor Prints on the bottom of the card to break up the background. The strip of Red Riding Hood stitched Satin Ribbon looks great and creates a lovely border to the non-stamped background.

Festive Friday Challenge #18

Hi everyone!

I am a little late today posting this. My week has been quite busy and I hope to get back on top of it before Mother’s Day on Sunday so I can sit back and relax! LOL!

Todays Festive Friday Challenge hosted by the lovely Nicole Derendorf is a colour challenge

I love this combo for Christmas cards, it has a lovely country feel to it.

I have used the Framelits die yet again, but this time I used the negative as an accent. You can also see I have used the gold Shimmer Mist over the card to Christmas it up a bit. Stamp set used is my favourite Christmas set, Winter Post and the sentiment is a part colouring of a stamp out of Tags til Christmas. I also used my favourite background for Christmas cards, Woodgrain.

Come along and have a play with the challenge and don’t forget to link your creation at Nicole’s blog
