A Name Starting With V

Good Sunday to you!!!

The temperture dropped here today, so it was bitterly cold.I hope it was warmer where you are.
Earlier this month my little Niece turned 2 yrs old and apart from making cards I sometimes
decorate wooden lettering. I have never met her as she lives in Brazil, so they are on their way to her now.

The card.

and now the Letter V for Vanessa.
Mainly SU items, but some are not. This can be hung on the wall or stood on a shelf.
The main colour theme if you haven't guessed is Pretty in Pink and Whisper White.
On the birthday card I made the sweets by punching a 3/4" circle and 2 punched hearts, that all.
The stamped image on them is from Delightful Decoration stamp set.
The bow on the letter V is a tutorial Teneale Williams did from this years convention. It is a Satin double bow and I was so chuffed I did it and thought it looked very pretty for a little girl.
Well that's all for now.
I'm glad you stopped by to have a look and would love to know what you think.

Happy Birthday to my Number One Man!!

It is my husbands birthday today and we started celebrating yesterday with a nice meal out.
He is a hard man to gift for and offered to do a days work instead of him, but he didn't fancy a day off(mad).
Years ago he was very into his motorbikes, so I thought it was very fitting to make him this card.

Penguin Birthday

Hello to you out there.
The last couple of days have been very wet in Sydney and colds and flu have been non stop in our house.
I have managed to get some craft done and following on from my last post my son went
to a party of a firend from his pre-school. They unfortuately they don't go to school together, but it was a
nice catch up for them both.
He took this card for his friend.

 Using the 2 Step Owl Punch was how this little guy was made and my inspiration came from Teneale Williams as she made this some time ago. My children kept asking me why has he got a hose in his mouth?
It's not a hose it is a party blower just to clear that up if you all thought the same.
So I hope it was liked by the birthday boy.
Well thanks for stopping by. I will be posting up coming classes, so stay tuned.

All of a flutter

Happy Monday!!!
It was a long weekend here and it is just coming to an end.
It has been poor weather for adventuring out big great for staying indoors and catching up on those things
you have longed to do, but never get round to it. (Are you all saying YES)?
Well I had a go at trying to reorganise my craft room.I did manage to make some difference and it's still
work in progress, but more about that another time.
So this time I made a simple card for the birthday girl and I think butterflies are always a winner with girls.
The colours are Tangerine Tango, Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White.
Framed Tulips (in the new Autumn/Winter Mini) is the embossed frame around the card place onto Whisper White card stock.The gems I used are non SU.
The stamps are from Butterfly Prints and On a Pedestal.
Thanks for stopping and taking a look.
Until the next time ....

Late Mother's Day

Hi to everyone out there.
I hope it hasn't been too cold for you where ever you are.(or too hot)
Now I know Mother's Day was last month, but I made this card  along time ago and I had forgotten about it. Now that doesn't mean my dear mum didn't get one, this is just an extra one I made.
I used the Big shot for the embossing and the die cutting.

For this card the colours I used were Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and White Confetti.
The strips of DSP are from the Patterns Pack Bold Brights and Cottage Wall - (Retired).
I used the curved slot punch either side of the top note to thread through the Old Olive silk ribbon,
as that punch is no longer available you can use a craft knife to place slits each side.
You may not see that I have used Champagne Mist around the butterflies and I daubed on the edges
of each of them.
A better look is by enlarging the photo.
Well I hope you enjoyed looking and please come back soon.Let me know what you think.

Stamp Sets:Well Scripted
Ink:Rich Razzleberry

Princess Scrapbook Page

Good Morning to you all.
I wanted to share something that I haven't done in such a long time.
I used to be really into Scrap booking before I joined Stampin' Up! and now it's not something I do so much
anymore. It was great to do it again and I find the subject of my children so easy to do.
The whole idea of what I wanted on the page didn't come easy, so it did take a bit of time.
Here's the finished product.

My favorite part of this page is the circle.
I used the Eyelet Boarder punch.Cut 2 strips of DSP 12x12 and folded small amounts all the way
round. I then just stuck it down using snail.Placing it on the page was with dimensionals.
The flowers I cut out are from the Bliss Stamp Set.
My colour pallet was mainly So Saffron, Pink Pirouette, Certainly celery and Very Vanilla.
I hope you enjoyed today's post as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Motorbike Male Card

Today I would like to present to you a card that I hardly ever do and that is a Male card.
This one has been sent to my dad who just turned 63 last month and was excited to use the Motorbike stamp which hadn't seen daylight until know.
I have also made another card for another special man in my life
which is my husband. I'll show you that a little later in the month.

My colours are Sahara Sand, Real Red, Not Quite Navy and Very Vanilla.
Square Lattice Embossing folder was used for the background on DSP.
The sentiment was used from the Happy Moments stamp set.
The motorbike was stamped in Staz On Black to allow for colouring.
Well that is all from me today. I have a poorly 5 year old at home and I better give him my attention.
Until next time.
