Two in One

23 Jan

Hello again! I hope you have all had a great week and now getting into a nice relaxing weekend.

 I was spoilt by hubby on Thursday night as he took me to the movies to see The Avatar and some dinner out. It was a great night, thanks to Dol for our tickets to goldclass (Christmas present 2008), my wonderful supportive parents for taking the kids for the night and of course for Michael for actually thinking of taking me out. The movie was great I would recommend you go see it.

My sister, Sarah, called this morning for a chat and asked if I had a spare card laying around that she could use for an engagement. After looking through my stash I realized that I didn’t so off I went to quickly whip something up. I ended up following this week’s challenge at Quixotic Challenges, stamp up something old, and this weeks sketch challenge over at The Pink Elephant.



I really enjoyed making this card as I got to use Fifth Avenue Floral, which I have had for about 6 months but only used maybe once or twice.

I have used lots of Stampin Up on this card, DS Paper and Cardstock, stamps, scallop punch and watercolour crayons. The only things not stampin up are the pearl ribbon, watercolour paper and the kinder glitz I have added to the tips of the flower (you cant really see this in the photo).

I will let you get back to enjoying your weekend.

One more week of school holidays (not that I am counting) and then after that I can hopefully get some routine back and perhaps be able to bring you more cards.

Until next time xoxo


Amy Rysavy Sketch

13 Sep

Hi again. I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend and are rested for the new week ahead.


My friends, Kirsty, Deanne and I often find it difficult to catch up for a bit of card making and gossiping because as you know life gets busy and our schedules always seem to clash. Last week we decided rather than letting another week go by we would pick a sketch challenge and all complete it. I am two days late, the deadline was Friday, but I am sure I will be forgiven, lol! We picked the Amy Rysavy sketch



When I first looked at it I wished that we had actually looked at the sketch rather than just saying we will do Amy’s but now that I have finished I can say that I am really happy with the result. Here is my card: 


I actually 3D the flower but rather than doing it as one object I cut it up into individual petals. Here is ma close up:



Supplies: SU Cardstock – Kraft, Baja Breeze, Going Grey, Rose Red and Urban Oasis DS Paper, SU Stamps – Fifth Avenue Floral and Great Friend, SU- Watercolor Crayons, miscellaneous embellishments.


Be sure to pop over to Kirsty’s site (Dark Arts) and have a look at her creation.


Till next time xoxo
