Welcome to my happy place.

Hi,

Welcome to my blog. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope that you will find some inspiration for your projects as I have from many lovely people. This is just a little space for me to share some of my cards, scrap book pages and maybe even some of my embroidery and quilting projects.

Enjoy and stop back often.

A Card From Me to You!

Hello lovely Friends,

Hope that you are having a great day. We have sunshine here in Melbourne after a huge weekend of rain and storms. If you live in Melbourne I hope that you weren't hit too badly. We only had a big branch down on a gate so not too much damage so that was good. There has been a lot of flooding in Queensland and NSW as well so I hope that you are all fairing well.

Yes finally I have something to show you. Yesterday I spent a lovely day with my lovely friend Claire, we did lots of talking and I managed to get a couple of cards made as well. One I will show you now and one you will have to wait until April. I was so lucky to get to play with a couple of new goodies that will be coming out in April from Stampin' Up so I won't spoil the surprise.

So I have all this green card stock given to me by my gorgeous friend Shaz so I will slowly use this up but that is why I have another green card fro you. I have made and Easel Card using Stampin' Up Products except the base card but it is very similar in colour to Hunter Green so you could always use that card if you happen to be casing this card. The stamps sets that I have used are from the 2009-2010 idea book and they are both hostess sets, Best yest and Echoes of Kindness. I used water colour paper and the crayons to colour the image.

Hope that you like it, and like usual I have given you all angles so you get a feel for the card.


Here is the card closed:

This is the card open and laying flat. I added the insert so that you could write a note on it to the person you may be sending this card to. It is in 2 parts so accommodate the fold in the card.



Here is the side on view so you get the idea of how its stands up.

Thanks for stopping by and spending a little time with me today.

March already!

Hi Everyone,

Yes I know that I haven't been on here for a while. I must admit that I was so busy at the end of last year that I just didn't have time and I lost a bit of the old mojo so didn't feel like making the time either. Plus I haven't really been looking at any of your blogs to feel inspired but I feel the need to get back into it and to see what wonderful creations you have all come up with.

Then of course came the big 40th and my lovely husband surprised me with a visit from my Mum and Dad for 2 weeks and a surprise birthday party. He really out did himself. It is not his thing to do and he did a fantastic job with help from some lovely friends who were all very sneaky. Thank you everyone.

Now of course we have started renovations on the 1st of Feb and things are all over the place so I have been taking lots of photos so I can do a renovations album. We have a long way to go yet but I already have over 150 photos. I don't think I will be using all of them though. But it is fun to see the progress of what we hope will be a fantastic new space for us. I will then get Michael into his own office and get my craft space back to myself! Ssshhh don't tell him, I said that.

I am looking forward to doing the rounds and finally doing some creating so watch this space. I have a Shop, Swap and Sell night coming up for my Girlfriends night at church in April so I had better get started on making some cards and other things for that.

Hope that this finds you all well.

Thanks for stopping by.

Take care.
