Merry Monday #39

Hi All, I have been able to steal a bit of time to make a Christmas card using the latest Merry Monday sketch. The DT have made some really pretty cards which got me motivated to sit down and make a card and it always feels good when I get one made through the week. Well I had better go pack as I am off for 3 days with work today and haven't really thought about it yet. Hopefully I will see you Saturday...thanks for stopping by.

Freshly Made Sketches #58

Hi All, well I am back with my last card for the day as I am off to go and listen to a great local band and have a dance with my hubby (after he's had a couple of coldies ;-) ) and then we are even staying out for the night as we have booked into the Casino where the band is playing. Fun, fun, fun!! So anyway here is my card, I have used the latest Freshly Made Sketches design and I also got some inspiration from Cindy who posted her card #37 on the site too, thanks for that Cindy. I had a new set of stamps from Flourishes that I hadn't used yet so now that I have, that's a good feeling too. Well, thanks for stopping by, until next time...happy stamping.

Mojo #264 + PDCC #155

Hi Stampers, I am back with my first Mojo in a while. This card wasn't really working for me but after changing a few things it finally came together and I am quite happy with it. Like I said I used the latest Mojo design for inspiration and for colour I have chosen the latest Play Date Cafe selection and the best thing is..I have another xmas card added to my selection...woohoo!!
Thanks for stopping by,

Distress Inked Christmas Card

 Hi Stampers, well I am back with another xmas card. I bought the latest Australian Simply Cards magazine this week...needed the free stamps that came with the know how it is <grin> and inside they had made this card using a couple of the stamps. For the background they had swiped it with a Tim Holtz distress ink and as I just happen to have bought my first 3 distress inks just recently I thought I would have a go. I didn't really know what all the hooplah was about with these inks but I must admit I like the effects they have...just have to do a bit more research on techniques with them. Once again, thanks for stopping by...until next time, happy stamping.

Late Dynamic Duo #44

I really like this colour combo from Dynamic Duo's #44 challenge...I actually started this card while it was still open but then decided to send the card to my friend I knew I couldn't post it while the challenge was still open because she is always visiting my blog and would see it. So this week it arrived in the mail so it's all good now..I can post!! I have also coloured my ribbon/seam binding on this card with new sprays I got from the recent Craft Show - Lindys Stamp Gang Starbursts (Tibetan Poppy Teal). This is the first time I have coloured ribbon and I am really pleased with how it turned out so I can see I will be doing this more often. Well I am off to make another card, thanks for stopping by.

Craft Weekend

Hi Stamping Friends, last weekend we had a Craft Weekend to officially open my new craft room and we had a ball!! So much so I am struggling to find my mojo today sitting here in my room all on my!! As you can see from the pics there was a lot of activity going on and it was fantastic to get together with my family & friends and see all that great talent at work. Even my beautiful daughter and beautiful niece sat down and made some cards...the next generation of crafters maybe.
Good times, good friends, good food & good wine...what more can you ask for??

Retro Sketches #32

Hi Stampers...I am back with another card. For this card I have used the latest Retro Sketches design and I chose to do a monochromatic colour scheme with browns. Once again, I have used some new stamps, I don't know about you but I struggle with 'male' cards so it is always a good feeling when you finish
Anyway, I hope you are having a great weekend, until next time, happy stamping!!

SSC #80

Hi Stampers, well I am back a lot later than I thought I would be but there has been lots of gossiping along with lots of stamping. For this card, I have used the latest Sketchbook Saturday Challenge with lots of new products too. I bought this beautiful ribbon yesterday at the new Lincraft store that has opened recently with a new embossing folder and my new stamp is from the my flourishes stamp set I picked up from the Craft Show. I really like this card and I loooove that ribbon and mannequin. Thanks for stopping by...

Mojo #262 + DD #23

Hi All, I am having the most fabulous weekend and it's only Friday!!! My good friend Robyn has flown into town from Perth and my sister in-law and another good friend have come over to my place for a 'Stamp Camp' to help celebrate the official opening <grin> of my new craft room. We have all been working on cards and this is my creation using the latest Mojo for design and the latest colour combo from Dynamic Duos. The Craft Show has just been in town and I have used some of my new purchases on my card. The new pennants die,  my new fairy dust glitter and one of my new embossing folders. Always good to have some new toys! Thanks for stopping by, I am off to make another card...see you soon.

Cardabilities #60 + CR84FN #64

Hi All, I am at my desk for a regular Saturday stamping and skyping with my mate Robyn. Next week she will actually be here stamping with me in the same room...woohoo....can't wait!! But back to why we are actually here card for the day. My design is from Cardabilities & my colour inspiration is from CR84FN. I am not really a 'pastel' girl but I must admit eventhough I struggled with this card at first and it took me all day to make, I am really happy with it. Sadly, I don't think the photo does it enough justice and I am ashamed to say there is no stamping on it....but then that happens sometimes. <grin>
As always, thanks for stopping by...until next time, happy stamping.

FMS #55 + PDCC #152

Hi All, we are back from our few days in Cardwell...always good to come home, especially with my awesome Craft Room waiting for me these days...<grin>
I made this card yesterday but couldn't post it because of our stupid internet connections...apparently it was on holidays and wasn't ready to get back to work - lol!!
But we seem to be up and running this morning so here is my card. For design I have used the latest Freshly made Sketches layout and for colour inspiration I have used the latest Play Date Cafe challenge. It has been a while since I have played at the Play Date Cafe.....
I really seem to be in a 'flower & butterfly' mood lately as that is what I am gravitating to regularly. That's ok, they are always good reliable images that pretty much go with everything.
Well, I am off to the Craft Show that is in town for the week, so I might catch you all later this afternoon. Have a good TGIF!! Until next time, happy stamping.

Mojo #260

Hi Bloggers, this is my last post for a few is school holidays here in North Queensland so we are off for a few days to do something together as a family. I wasn't going to do this weeks Mojo Monday but I changed my mind at the last women are allowed to do...<grin>...what changed my mind was, yesterday DH was helping me sort out my Cricut as it hadn't been cutting properly and after we had it right he tested it by cutting out this cute little bird. When that was cut out beautifully, I got him to cut me out a couple of leaves to match and voila!! I had the basis for a card!! Isn't it funny how the little things get you motivated to create...LOL...
Anyway, here I am posting my Mojo in the dying minutes of the challenge so I had better stop yapping and post it then go and start packing, nothing like leaving things to the last minute, especially when you're on holidays, no need to rush...<grin> Have a great week, thanks for stopping by and until next time, happy stamping!!
