A big hello to all! We've have been away on holidays for the last 5 weeks so it has been a while since I have been crafting and it's a good feeling to be sitting at my desk playing. I must admit I struggled a bit with this card...it's very different for me and it took a bit to get my mojo going again but I am happy with the end result. I'm posting it to the current challenges over at:

I made this card yesterday but have only just had a chance to post it. For this card, I have used the latest sketch from the DT at Feeling Sketchy. I've had this masterboard sitting on my desk for a while so thought I would use it. I stamped some circles over it then die cut a hole out of it and then stamped my sentiment under it. This sentiment is out of a new set of stamps I got just this week and I can see it becoming a firm favourite. I then fussy cut some flowers left over from another card and added bling to them. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend planned.
Well another month has gone by...this year is just flying and with the start of a new month, there is a new Tim Holtz Tag Challenge.
Tim's tag is very masculine but I have decided to go feminine and use a stamp out of a new set I got only this week. I've also used a sentiment from another stamp set and fussy cut out what I wanted and the row of shoes that are in the same set as well. I think overall it needed to be a bit brighter than it turned out...but oh well, these things happen. Thanks for popping by.

And another card for my stamping Saturday...for this card I have taken up the challenge from CAS Colours & Sketches where they have a double challenge happening. They want you to make a card using the colour combo and the sketch. I started off using my DI's but they didn't stamp clearly for my 'banner' stamp so I dug out my chalk inks which I must admit haven't seen the light of day for a very long time but the troopers that they are...they stamped like I had only bought them yesterday!
Thanks for popping by....
Another card for my stamping Saturday with my stamping bestie while we Skype together and challenge each other. This card feels so 'right' as I am turning into a CAS stamper more and more. I have used the latest CAS(E) this Sketch for inspiration and the latest colour combo from colourQ. I just adore the softness of Distress Inks and they have worked perfectly for this card.
For today's card I have used a masterboard I had made using the left over colours from some other creation. I then stamped the floral stamp in strips with Weathered Wood Distress Ink onto it as I just wanted it to be soft in the background. I then added some flowers a die cut frame and sentiment and finished off with stamping 'friend' under it. I have actually added a little glitter on the frame but it's not really showing up in the pic. Today, I'm playing along with Try Stampin' on Tuesday...thanks for stopping by.

Today's card just sort of happened, I came out and made made a master board with my DI's then stamped some flowers randomly over it...now what to do...I had been looking at the latest challenge from The Paper Players for a couple of days now, but I must admit, I'm not a big fan of tags on cards so I wasn't sure if I would play along or not but after mulling over my master board, I came up with this.

As promised...here is my Noel card for our local ABC challenge. As we are up to 'N', I had to make a tag or card with N as it's main theme. I have had this Noel die cut floating around on my desk for ages so I was determined to use it and after seeing Bev from Uniko Studios latest challenge of Black and White with a splash of colour...I knew how to make it work.
Black & White with a splash of colour
Hello Fellow Bloggers....I'm at my desk for a couple of hours of playing and the first card I was supposed to make was a 'Noel' card for our ABC challenge as we are up to N's but as you can see that's not what I made. I the latest colour combo from the DT at Fab Friday caught my eye and Sweet Stampin' have the theme 'Boys and their Toys' which got me thinking...so here is my Noel card....hehe....not! I'm sure you can guess what me next card will be...anyway, hope your week is off to a great start. Thanks for popping in...

Well I saw the latest sketch from the DT at CAS(E) this Sketch and knew exactly what I was going to do with it! So I went digging through my Christmas box to find the stamps I needed and sat down to look for a colour combo to use and I found this lovely and soft colour challenge over at Tis' the Season which suited my 'different style' Christmas card and it turned out so lovely...I had to make some more!
And then I used some fun colours for the presents. So within minutes I had 3 more Christmas cards to add to my stash! I'm also posting my card to Cards in Envy who want Christmas in July. Well I think that's it for me today...as always thanks for popping by and I hope you are having an enjoyable weekend.
Cards in Envy: Christmas in July Challenge!
Hi All, I don't really 'do' construction cards as I usually don't have a lot of time to 'fiddle' with them but after seeing one of these cards made at a friends house and as I am temporarily a lady of leisure, I thought I would give it a go.
It's also my cousins birthday on Monday and I know she enjoys my hand made cards so I have made a concerted effort to get it finished.
I'm in a real 'flower' zone at the moment, probably because the weather is warming up for us, not that winter is not technically finished, I think it pretty much is for us in northern Australia.
For this card, I have used the latest colour combo from the DT at colourQ which has suited my summery card. Thanks for stopping by...
