Party Time

Happy Monday to you.
Yesterday my son went to a neighbours 5th Birthday Party, so like always I made a card.
It was the first opportunity to use the new stamp set Party This Way. I used colours from the Brights Collection, as kids love bright colours.

The party was great fun. I had a laugh when the Pinata couldn't break open, so a hammer was taken to it (a Dad did this). In the end the sweets went flying everywhere and we all were hit with them.
A kids party isn't a party without some casualities.LOL
A fun time had by all.

Stamp Set: Party This Way
Ink: Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise and Delightful Daffodil
Card Stock:Delightful Daffodil, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise,Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White
Other: Versa Mark, Scalloped Edge Punch, Circle Sizzix Die Cut, 1 3/4"punch, Embossing Dots.

Thanks for stopping by.

Halloween Is Coming!!!!

Hi to all of you.
I wanted to share a Hostess gift that I made for the Workshop last weekend.
I had so much fun making this and as I do love Halloween it was a great treat for me to do it.
I got to use my new Mini Milk Carton Big Shot Die Cut for treat boxes.
Now I can't put my finger on who's blog I saw the little characters for decorating the cartons, so I can't take the credit as original ideas. They are very easy to do and of course this is helped with the 2 step owl punch.

Next photo

How cute are they?
I used the Got Treats Stamp set which is really cute also. I used a tutorial from Stamping My Life Away to
make the milk carton caddy which I did previously for my Christmas item.
Now why don't you have a go.
Thanks for dropping by.
Until next time.

Mum's Birthday

Hi all.
Yesterday it was my mother's 60th birthday and as she lives in Queenslands I unfortunately
could not be there to help celebrate.Nevertheless, she really enjoyed her day and here
is the card I sent her.

I just love the colours of the new Sweet & Sour Speciality paper. They are Very Vanilla, Rose Red & Pumpkin Pie.
The idea came from the cover of The Idea and Catalogue with using the Die Cut Top Note.
The flower is cut from the circle scallop punch and folded like a fan. I punch 2 scallops to
make this one and placed an antique brad in the middle.
I should think she will like it.

Stamps sets: A Word For You
Cardstock:Very Vanilla
DSP:Sweet and Sour Speciality Paper
Ink: Rose Red
Other:Circle Scallop Punch, Top Note Die Cut, Big Shot, Pumpkin Pie Ribbon & Antique Brad.

Thanks for stopping by.

Up Coming Workshop for Calendars

Hello there folks,

Hope you are enjoying the Spring School Holidays for those out there with kids at home.
Time I must say goes really fast and that is a great intro for the project that I will be showing you.
My dear friend who has finally agreed on being a Hostess for a change. She always came to card nights
and now it's her turn to earn some free gifts.
My team managed to get a hold of these mini calendars to buy in bulk and as a Christmas gift for teachers, friends or family it's easy to do.
I used watercolour paper for the watercolouring and used mainly the new In Colours.

Second Version

As you can see I made an Easel Card for easy posting and to pop onto a desk and it doesn't take up much room.
I followed a tutorial from Dawn Olchefske which she made a really cute Easel Calendar card. Check it out.
I love the way these turned out and hope my ladies will to.

Take care and thanks for looking.

Something Fishy

I know you haven't heard from me lately, but that's what happens when it School Holidays.
Not so long ago I made this card for a friend of my son's for a Birthday Party.
For some reason I like making this card for the boys. I like the illusion of a fish tank.

 Of course I just had to use the cute treat cups for this effect and used Pocket Silhouettes stamps to give that seaweed look.

Stamp Sets:Something Sweet, Pocket Silhouettes, and Whimsical Words.
Cardstock:Tempting Turquoise, Tangerine Tango & Whisper White
Ink:Tempting Turquoise, Tangerine Tango and Pear Pizzazz
Other: Treat Cup, Scallop Edge Punch, Ribbon (non SU)
