Feeling a little Grungy!!

Hey everyone!

I had a fabulous day today! I created a couple of cards, I had awesome company {waving at Andrea} and I took some very cute photos of my son, Darcy and his cute little girlfriend Ava.

The card I am showing you today had been sitting on my desk for about a month……not the whole thing of course or I would have blogged it. Have you ever started a card and thought….Hmmmmm it needs something….but OMG!!! I don’t have it. So you buy it just to finish it? Well in this case I needed the Smooch Spritz in silver foil colour and I am so glad I waited. LOL!

I really like this one!! A LOT! There is a lot going on more than you probably realise. The base piece is Naturals Ivory. I clear embossed the diamond pattern stamp from the Grunge Rock set, scrunched up the CS, then smooch spritzed it then ‘tapped’ the real red ink pad over the top. Pretty nice huh?

I ruffled the Black ribbon and stapled it into place. I love this effect and think it suits the style well.

Okay…..now I have to show you a couple of these photos I took today. But first a little BG. We first met the Francis family when Darcy and Ava were a few months old. Ava’s sister, Sahmara, is best friends with my youngest girl Akayla and Ava’s Mum, Andrea, is my good friend and scrapping buddy.

We have always joked about Ava and Darcy being an item…….but not this early!! LOL!

They were super funny. Ava was playing with some lipstick and dolled herself up just a little bit. Darcy also wanted it on so Ava obliged. Ava did inform us though that Darcy’s lippy was a bit messy and hers was just perfect..LOL! We of course had to take some piccy’s…..and look what happened next……

We didn’t want that lipstick to go to waste now did we?! Oh how CUTE!!!

Well that’s all from me today…..I fell like making another card!

Inkspiration Challenge #58

Hey everyone!

I love this weeks funky colours! Absolutely awesome for a boy card. As soon as I saw the colours I automatically reached for my Extreme Elements set. I don’t play with it nearly enough…LOL!

I actually managed to keep this card fairly simple. I surprised myself actually! I won’t tell you how I debated over it for two days whether to add more layers or not……LOL!

If you look closely enough at the skateboarder you may notice he is smudged a little. I wanted to give the impression of movement. It was quite easy. All I did was when I stamped him and before you lift the stamp off the page I “dragged” him to the left (the direction the skateboarder is coming from) just a cm or two. Very simple! I like this card a lot….what do you think?

Make sure you go to Inkspirations Challenge Blog and submit your creation so we can check it out!

Don’t forget to have a look at the rest of the DT, they all have something fabulous to share!

Grunge Rock!

Hey everyone!

I thought I would share with you all one of the projects from my Mini catalogue Launch. I liked this one quite a lot actually and it was super quick and easy to put together and to top it off it is a male birthday card! It’s not very often I make one of those for this here blog! I already have the perfect recipient. I just have to make sure I don’t lose it! You are probably thinking how can she lose it? Trust me….I do it a lot….unless of course I have a fairy card thief. I might just see if I can catch one and send it on over to Karen Thomas’s house to steal some cards for me. LOL! Sorry I couldn’t help it! I just love Karen’s cards so much that I would stoop to thievery!

Anyway here is my card-

See I told you it was super easy. Well I hope I have inspired you to pull out Grunge Rock and have a play because as I have just realised card making is super fun and calming. Actually, I think it has a lot to do with the fact my son just started Kindy this week and that might explain the high volume of card making and blog posts this week! LOL!

Inkspirations Challenge #52

Hey everyone!

I have to admit…….I need to learn how to blog again! LOL! When uploading the above picture I had to think twice about where I do that!. How bad is that?! But instead of blogging I have been enjoying my kids and hubby heaps. Hubby is home on two weeks holiday so we have been catching up on all that work that needed doing in the backyard and around the house. It feels so good to achieve some things around here. This year we are working on installing a new kitchen and I cannot wait!

But that’s not why your here and I know I am a day late with posting this, but hey, remember I am learning how to do this again!

This week challenge is a colour one, and I must admit it was a toughy for me. I really need to get back into the swing of things. I think the hubby is too much of a distraction. I might have to send him back to work early! LOL! Check out the Inkspirations site for the new challenge and check out the rest of the DT’s awesome work.

I had a play with a new set from the Summer mini, Grunge Rock. One of my new fave sets by the way! I also think this card can be used for either girl or boy, don’t you think?

Anyways check out the rest of the DT!
