This card is for a little girl who lives up the road & will be celebrating her 4th Birthday this week, the silhouette stamp reminds me of her when she is wandering about outside collecting flowers, & of course pink is her favourite colour.
I chose to make the card following the Sweet Sunday Sketch.
Now this is the mess it's actually two tables together & I have at least 20 ink pads 15 SU stamp sets Various other stamp sets card stock uncut & scraps asst of tools & embellishments, & of course rubbish that I should put straight in the bin as I go. I guess you can say I am a definite messy stamper.
The spot I was crafting from was about a 20cm square in the foreground of the picture on the left. It's amazing I could make anything, hubby's comment last night was "who made this mess". I don't know who he thought it was as I was the only one in the room all day so I couldn't even blame the kids. I am off now to clean it just a little.
I am here this morning to share a card I made for my Sister -inlaws birthday. My hubby's family had a VW beetle when they were kids, so I hope she likes it Hubby thinks it's alright "Yeh alright with a nod" to be precise. Typical man!!
I first saw this stamp on Karen Thomas's blog (she does the most amazing work) & new straight away I had to have it.

My card is for the Stampin Royalty challenge & I have used the gorgeous Elements of Style stamp set. I used my water brush & stamp pad to colour the flowers in Concord Crush & the leaves in Old Olive.
The second card I have made for the challenge is for my sons Birthday next month. I can't believe my baby will be 10!
Well thats enough waffling for now, let me know what you think by leaving a comment.
Stamp sets; Extreme Elements & Extreme Dirt bike & It's your Birthday.
Ink; Bordering Blue, Blue Bayou, Not Quite Navy & Pacific Point

I made the flower from the Fancy Flower punch following a tutorial off the web, the rest of the card is pretty straight forward if you would like more details feel free to Email.

For those who are wondering the two thin lines around the edge are drawn on using the marker, otherwise the rest of the card is pretty self explanatory.
Also Thank You to all the lovely ladies who left comments last week, we were away from Sunday morning so I didn't have time to look at all the other creations & leave some comments, will endeavour to do so this week.
Stamp sets; Just Believe, Teeny Tiny Sentiments & En Francis
Card Stock; Early Espresso & Crumb cake
Ink; Early Espresso
DSP: Crumb Cake from neutral stack
Accessories; Early Espresso ribbon, Crumb cake button & Linen Thread.
The card is for the Stampin' Celebration Challenge they have a new look blog so pop on over & check them out. I just loved the colours from the picture & new immediately that i just had to have balloons somewhere, bringing it all together was a challenge.
I paper pieced Bella's clothes as well as all the balloons, I also added crystal effects to the balloons & the icing on the cupcake for definition. I really love how she turned out it, looks like she is ready to attend the party in the picture.
I would love to here what you think so please do leave a comment.

One of the many things happening in the lead up to Christmas was my daughters graduation from Primary school. It was such a lovely night which started with Mass, then an awards ceremony & cutting of the cake, Emily was lucky to be chosen to cut the cake with one of the boys, it was then onto dinner prepared by the year 5 parents & finally a disco for the year 6 students.
I just had to include this photo above as Emily thinks her Dad looks grumpy & this is the best of 4 photos (he is trying to give James directions on taking the photo, not that he needed any)
part of this award is to tell you 8 things about me.
1:One of my new years resolutions is to loose weight for my nieces' wedding in Bali in June & possibly even a couple of kilos for my cousins wedding in mid February will keep you posted with my progress.
2: another new year resolution is to post more regularly to my blog.
3: I don't like vegetables (not for my parents lack of trying either).
4: I went overseas for the first time last September.
5: I love to visit theme parks & go on most of the rides (California Screamin at Disneyland is one of the best)
6: the best job I had was Manager of Bed Bath n' Table in Canberra a position I held for 4 years prior to having kids.
7: I am a director of a company that supplies Wind Turbines, Parts & Services in Australia
8: I am the only one in our family who can't ride a motorbike.
I am supposed to pass this onto 8 people but Sonia has included some of those I would choose & I can't pick anyone special out of all the blogs I visit ( I know I was never any good at choosing). maybe that should have been on my list above.
Bye for now
Stamp Sets: Because I Care & Whimsical Words
Cardstock & Inks: Basic Black Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Going Grey & Pumpkin Pie.
Accessories: Scallop Trim Border punch.
Bye for Now
