My baby’s turning 8!

5 May

As I mentioned in my last post it is my baby girls 8th Birthday tomorrow. I still see her as my baby so often when I look at her these days and see such a confident bubbly girl I shake my head in amazement and wonder how did we get here. Lizzie darling I know that you want read this, or who knows maybe you will, but I am so proud of you sweetheart with all that you have already managed to achieve in your short life, I look forward to watching you continue to grow. Happy Birthday for tomorrow princess xo

Sorry for my rambling then but I just wanted to share with you all how proud I am of my baby! Goes without saying that the card I am brining you today is for my special girl. I was looking through the challenges trying to get some inspiration when I came across this weeks challenge at Stamp Something, a sketch.

 

I then popped over to Anyone for Anya (lots of layers) and saw Stacey’s card with lots of bright colours. Straight away I was inspired and went off for a search in my papers for the brightest, girly colours I could find! This is what I came up with:

  

I love the Heidi among flowers stamp and think it matches this card well. The papers are pink (not quite as dark as in photo) background from My Little Shoebox-Little ladies-Jana, Blue strip Basic Grey and the green is also from My Little Shoebox, Imagine a forest-get the camera and the chocolate chip from Stampin Up. I have also used my copics for colouring, Apron Strings Fiskars punch, kaisercraft rhinestones, spellbinders Nestabilities, kaisercraft ribbon and love heart pin from Quixotic.

I have lots of cards I need to make this week so hopefully I will be back later today with another card to show you.

Until next time xoxo

The Pink Elephant meets Stamp Something

10 Apr

After being out early for netball and Auskick I decided a lazy afternoon at home was in order. So after lunch (we have a cooked lunch on Saturday before Michael goes to work for the evening ) and a bit of cleaning and washing I sat back and started to make a card.

As I was doing my usual surf through my fav blogs I discovered that I had made the top 3 at Anya Ink, YEY! I was quite surprised as this challenge was meant to be until next Friday (Kristy accidentally closed it a week early and as such has re-opened it and will draw another 3 next Thursday)  but it gave me a huge boost.

I have seen some of the super talented Aussie ladies using paper doilies in their creations lately and decided to give it a go therefore that was one of the basis of my card. The other being that I wanted to partake in this weeks challenge at The Pink Elephant (nature) and Stamp Something (stitching) but did not really have a sketch in mind. I decided to push myself and just make up my own layout and not bother about doing a sketch and I have to say I surprised myself (although it is very basic).

 

 

The image is Swiss Pixie from All That Scraps, Paper is Cosmo Cricket and the cardstock is Stampin Up. I have added so faux stitching, coloured with copics and also distressed my edges. Think that is about it.

You will once again have to excuse the lighting on the pick (it has also not really picked up the shadings too well in colouring) but up here in the Dandenong’s it has been overcast and gloomy all day. Think this is going to be the story for quite a while now with Winter approaching.

 Anyhow I better be off I need to go decorate Robbie’s cake for his party tomorrow.

Until next time xoxo

Sketch Saturday

8 Feb

I hope everyone is well. It has been a few days since I last posted because I have been struggling with my colouring, does not matter what I do or what I use I am not happy with it at all. Today however, I coloured an image which I was reasonably happy with, still not brilliant, nut as I need to get a card made for my nieces birthday decided to use it.

I decided to also play along with this weeks challenge over at Sketch Saturday, which may I add ended up being really hard!!

 

 

 I love this stamp and really wanted to use it as it reminds of my niece. I am happy with how this card came out, I wanted to use these new papers that I picked up on the weekend and thought that as they were quite heavy that I did not want to over embellish. This ended up been very difficult as everything I was trying to use was too heavy. In the end I thought the buttons were my best option. This card has taken me hours to make as I think my mojo has gone for a little walk!!!!!

 I hope you all have a great week and ask that if you see my Mojo to send it back my way LOL!

Until next time xoxo
