Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop

Hello Ladies,
Well it's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop time again & the challenge this time was the Inspiration picture below.
While I loved the photo lots of gorgeous colour, I struggled to make only one card. I set out to do lots of creating the after my last post but our holiday has not been great for the MOJO it's definitely gone AWOL maybe I left it in Bali lol.

For today's card I have used the Signature Dress form die & sentiment from the Flower Fusion 3 stamp set, both from Papertrey Ink.
I have use the Papertey Ink Felt which is just fab in the colours of Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shore & Simply Chartreuse.I have then hand drawn a border with a felt tip fineliner (not bad for my first ever attempt).
Be sure to pop over to Nichole Heady's blog to check out all the other fabulous creations, whilst you are there check out the rest of Nichole's blog she does some amazing work along with the rest of the design team.

Thanks for dropping by, I would love to know what you think.

Deadline missed

 Just  a quick post to share a card I made earlier in the week for the Sweet Sunday Sketch but missed the deadline to post it.
It's a sweet little digi image I had on file not sure where it's from, but she sure is cute. This was one of the first images I coloured with my Copics. I still have a few more that need to be made into cards, not sure when that will happen though.

I have also made a card for the Papertrey Ink Blog home which goes live at 12 midnight Australian time so please do pop back to check it out.

 Bye for now

Off to do my first bit of stamping since returning from holidays, I've got some challenges printed out so hopefully that will get the Mojo flowing.

Bye for now

Back to Reality

We are finally back home to reality after spending 10  nights in Bali for our nieces wedding, & the hardest part of coming home was leaving the 30degree days to arrive home to a freezing 7 degrees  at 11am yesterday, not funny !!!!!!!!

We had a lovely time in Bali, The wedding was held at the Grand Hyatt in Nusa Dua & was just beautiful unfortunately the reception got rained out just as we were finishing the main meal, we then had to wait in a downstairs restaurant whilst they prepared a function room for us, the party continued with lots of dancing & singing & was still going strong when we left at 1am, we only left then because we had to check out of our hotel at 11am. Can you believe it hadn't rained or even looked like rain in the 8 days we had already spent there.

We didn't venture far from our resort the Novotel Nusa Dua, although we spent the first full day in Kuta at the shops & markets, that was a real eye opener. Emily was absolutely petrified at the markets as the vendors really targeted her & would grab at her to look at something or try to get her into their stall for a girl who's favourite pastime is shopping she never wanted to go again she even stayed in the apartment for the morning when Robert James & I went to the markets at the front gates to Nusa Dua. We also spent another day at the Waterbom water park with cousins & another family we met at our resort.

For some reason all the photos I took look quite grainy, so I have only a few to share with you & the best photo I have of the bride & groom is one I have cropped another couple out of.

The gorgeous couple
Nadia & Josip

 The pool area at the Novotel

 Robert & I dressed in our wedding finery I definately need to loose those kilos!!

 Emily James & I. A rare photo of me with the kids as I am normally the one taking the photo.

 One of the many gorgeous flowers at the resort.

Wow its now 11.30pm & I better hit the sack, the kids are back to school tomorrow & i am sure they will need a little prodding in the morning to get ready by 7.30am.

I hope to get back some time this week with some cards although I am not feeling the MOJO lol!!!!

A CASE & Fav Colour Combo

I hope you are enjoying my scheduled posts, at the time of this post going live our family should be celebrating the wedding of my husbands niece in BALI & possibly dieing from the heat.We head home tomorrow & so I will have some photos to share.
The last of my Peach Parfait & Very vanilla cards is a case of a card from the Splitcoaststanpers website, this is a link to the card. As soon as I saw it I new I wanted to case it. I haven't really changed anything other than using the seam binding & placement of the sentiment & of course the colour.
The card uses the Strength & Hope stamp set from SU.

This card is also a great layout if you wanted to mass produce some cards, just personalise it with your chosen image & sentiment.

Thanks for dropping by & for the lovely comments.

CAS & Current Fav Colour Combo

As the title says a CAS (Clean and Simple)  card using one of my current favourite colour combos.

This card uses the Beautiful blooms flower die & sentiment from Papertrey ink, Card stock & ribbon from SU.
This is a great card to mass produce, as it is very quick & could be personalised with any number of sentiments & the flower could be substituted for any punched flower. 

Hope you are enjoying my regular posts, I have one more card to show using this colour combo, so do please drop back.

A new favourite Colour Combo

Todays card is one I have made using my new favourite colour combo, Peach Parfait & Very Vanilla.

I have used the Strength & Hope set from SU which is a really pretty set, with some of the proceeds of the sale going to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
The gorgeous cream seam binding & pearls add a soft & luxurious feel to the card & once all assembled I have spritzed the whole card with some glimmer mist.
 In case you wandering the butterfly antennae are made from slivers of card stock.

I have two more cards to share over the next few days using this same colour combo.

Thanks for dropping by.

Mothers Day card

I know it's a little late for Mothers day but thought I should still share with you a card I made for my Mother in law for Mothers Day, well actually hubby chose it from several samples I had made.

 Unfortunately it is not an original idea I found it on the Splitcoast stampers website, the original card was made by Kirsteen Gill. Being an easel card it stands up well, I have added a different butterfly &
 heaps of Dazzling diamonds so it really glitters, otherwise it is pretty much the same as I thought it was such beautiful card just the way it was.

Many Thanks Kirsteen my Mother in law loved it.
