Celebrate Today!

Hello everyone,

I have participated in a Sketch Challenge that is from a little crafting group I am a part of on Facebook.

Here is the sketch

Sketch Challenge

I don’t do square cards very often, so this was a welcome change. Another requirement in the challenge was it that it had to be a Baby card. Which again is something I don’t do very often.

Here is the end result.

Celebrate Today, Baby Card

My colour combination is Night of Navy, Tangerine Tango, Pool Party and Gold. I like this combo and may create another. I envision butterflies on that one.

I used the Bravo Stamp Set for the sentiment. For assorted colours I used the Pen to Marker technique, which I call the Halitosis Technique for short. LOL!

I used some paper from the Cherry on Top Paper Stack for the background. I love all those balloon strings hanging down. Very celebration style.

I will list all products used below as usual for your convenience and remember if you would like any of these products just click on the product and it will take you to my store.

Thanks for dropping by!

Baby Onesie Cuteness!

Hello everyone!

A couple of years ago my Mum asked me to whip up for her 2 huge cards that her and all her fellow staff could sign for maternity leaving staff. Do you remember them? There was a yellow one with a kangaroo on front and a green one with a hot air balloon on the front. Well, Mum has asked for another one. And I think this is my favourite one by far. I must apologise though I took these photos at night and the quality is a little poor.

Here is a close up of the main image

It is the Elebration stamp and again I have covered the cake with a present that I handmade. It makes this stamp so much more flexible. I also used the ABC block stamp from Little Additions and clear embossed it on the base. Colours used are Wild wasabi, Bashful Blue, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and Naturals Ivory cardstock for the base.

Inkspiration Challenge #96

Hey everyone!

I must apologise for being so late in getting my post up. It has been one crazy week I can assure you! lol! This weekend is to be different and no one is going to change it on me……NO ONE!!!

Anyway, on to this weeks Colour Challenge.

I first thought Christmas but I was in the mood for a Baby card, not that it had anything to do with the fact that someine had ordered one, LOL!

I finally used Elebration! This has to be the cutest darn stamp I have ever seen. My friend needed a Congratulations card and I think Elebration is for 1st birthdays, but I still wanted to use it. I decided to make a present out of CS and I then used it to cover the Birthday cake in between the Elephants legs. Pretty cute huh?

Inkspirations Challenge #81

Hey everyone!

I bet you all think I dropped off the face of the planet! LOL! In a way I did. I have had sick kids home from school, 72 meters of 6ft fence to build, children’s parties to attend, tax appointments to keep, a hubby’s BBQ birthday to organise, workshops to hold and not to mention the usual day-to-day running of a four children household. All this just after I said I would be blogging more regularly. I have also had a lack of mojo, this certainly doesn’t help and I even missed last weeks Inkspiration Challenge. I do hope things slow down soon. I need a time out! LOL!

Anyway this weeks challenge is a sketch challenge.

and my submission

I love this stamp set. It doesn’t look it but there is a lot of paper piecing going on here. I spent all day yesterday getting that little panel together and then late last night I misplaced it. I nearly cried! LOL! I eventually found it and finished the card this morning, so I am not completely happy with the end result as I rushed it so I could have it uploaded. I had grand plans but ended up simplifying it. Oh well maybe next time I won’t leave it to the last minute.

Don’t forget to go to the Inkspirations Challenge Blog and check out the rest of the DT and to link your creation.

I do have something else to do as you all might remember I said I would give my last challenges’ card away to a subscriber to celebrate the amount of subscribers I have. I went to Random Number picker and the number 79 came up, which I thought was fitting considering it was Challenge #79. So after going through all the subcriptions #79 belonged to

Nicole Derendorf.

So I will send the card to Nicole as soon as I get her details! Talk soon girlfriend.

I have one more thing to share. It’s a photo of my boy Darcy with his new toy.

He absolutely loves it! He loves anything “car” He went to Mopar Sunday at Willowbank Raceway on the weekend and had an absolute blast. He totally loves Dodges, in particular the Dodge Superbee and the ’69 Dodge Charger. When he came across one he would tell his dad to take a photo of him with it. Very cute. He did impress some owners with his knowledge and let him sit inside their pristine show quality cars. He was in seventh heaven I can assure you. I have some photos of the day and I will share them with you next time.

Oh well have heaps more to do so I best get to it!

Another CAS…..just couldn’t help myself!!

Hey everyone!

I had a couple of days off from crafting, and in those two days I had so many ideas going through my mind…..don’t you hate that?! You have a couple of days off and you have lots of ideas and when you have time or want to create there’s nothing, zip, zilch, nada going through your creative banks!! That’s why keeping a craft journal/notebook is a good idea. When you see something or have an idea in places you would never expect you can jot/draw it down while it’s fresh in your mind and use it when you can sit down to create.

But onto what I have created…..You know how I have created something for the Clean And Simple challenge blog…..well I made some more!

Pretty cute HUH?! well I have sort of decided just recently that I would create two of the same cards at once, and when it comes to doing a girl card I would do the same card in boy colours…..so here is number two

I like them both very much and cannot choose between the two. Which one is your favourite?

Baby Bundle!

Hey everyone!

On Thursday I told you all I was off to visit my buddy Michelle. Well I had a fabulous day! Even though we intended to stamp all day, we didn’t quite get there! LOL! Firstly I left home 2 hrs later than planned {don’t ask, LOL!}, got there did some chatting, started creating, did some more chatting, had lunch, more chatting, and then more stamping……….OMG!!! I have to go, it’s getting late! Oh well! The day just went too fast. So after saying my goodbyes I head off in the sunset only to get stuck in traffic on the Pacific Motorway for an hour and a half! I’m not even sure what it was that made us sit there that long….all of a sudden we were off and there was no clues to what blocked us. Later closer to home on the Warrego Highway there was a terrible accident in a well-known black spot and I was thankful ten minutes earlier I jumped off to get some dinner {which I planned to get in Gatton} at Plainlands.  What a mess. Wreckage was strewn all across the four lane highway {{{{shudder}}}} Scary stuff!

But anyway I did manage to create 2 cards on my visit and this is one of them

I was very impressed with the example in the catalogue, I recreated it some what. I left out a couple of the stamps and did a couple of my own things, but generally the same. I think I might love this set! I will play with it some more and I will let you know!
