Darby & Penelope

13 Jun

Hi there, I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. We have a long weekend here in Australia which I love. It is nice knowing that there is no saturday morning sports or going through the morning routine for school and to be able to doing things at a lazy pace.

Yesterday Michael worked so after spending most of the day cleaning I decided to sit down and make a card. It is my gorgeous friend Kirsty’s daughter birthday next week so I sat down to make her a card. I looked for sketches and although there are plenty of great ones out there none of them were pulling me in so I decided to think outside the box and come up with my own. I have to say that I am quite happy with the layout of this card.

I wanted to use the Darby & Penelope stamp as I can imagine Elizabeth and Kira sitting on a fence of wall and having a good yarn like a couple of old ladies! They have known each other since they were born (Kirsty and I met through mothers group) and although they may not see each other all the time when they do it is never strained.

I am going to enter this into’s this weeks challenges for:

Anya Ink – Button & Bows

All That Scraps Challenges – Buttons & Ribbons

Stamp Something – Happy something (I think the image symbolises happiness)

I have used Darby & Penelope Stamp from CC Designs, kaisercraft ribbon, lace, kaisercraft pearls, October Afternoon Paper, sprays from spotlight, button from stash and spellbinders Labels Nine.

I have a couple of hours now till we need to go out again so will see if can get a sketch challenge in.

Thanks for stopping by, until next time xoxo

A day of celebrations

20 Mar

This afternoon I surfed my way over to The Pink Elephant and was looking through their top 12 when I discovered that I was one of them. I am surprised you did not hear my squeal of delight after I found this out as it the first time I have won an award. I am now proudly display my award on my sidebar!

My second celbration for today was that Elizabeths netball team won their game 19-0 which is a hige achievement for them. They only started in September last year and to see them have such a good game is just fantastic.

Then the third celebration for today is I am off to an engagement party for my cousin. As she is still relatively young I wanted to make her a card that was a bit funky and a little left to the centre. I decided to do the sketch over at Friday Sketchers and I also incorporated this weeks challenge over at All That Scraps Weekly Wednesday Challenge (easel card). I have never made an easel card. I always thought they looked a bit fiddly but they are the complete opposite they  are so simple and I love the effect of them.

Anyhow I better make this short as I have to get ready. Here is the sketch:

  

And here is my card:

 

I have used another of my stamps from the Sugar Plum Spring Set that I got from All That Scraps a month or so ago (still got about another 3 images that I am yet to ink). I have used my copics for colouring, paper from October Afternoon, Stampin Up Cardstock. and the Fiskars Apron Strings punch. I think that I have listed it all!

 Well I better be off now as I have to get ready.

Until next time xoxo
