Challenge time

Ok, instead of cleaning I've been crafting. But I'm enjoying it much more than I would cleaning...lol. This card was made for a challenge at


(I did it, I did it, thanks for the help girls)

I haven't done many challenges, and I had left over cardstock from the card I made the other day, and thought whay not put it to use. Actually I used scraps for the entire card. Not bad for someone who has only done one other challenge and that was only 2 days ago.

All the card stock and dsp are from Making Memories. Not quite the same as the original sketch, but thats called creative licence.

When Inspriation Strikes

Go with the flow.

I was inspired by a lead on Splitcoast Stampers that led me to this blog


(Sorry once again I'm having a problem with my links)

I was so inspired that I went ahead and made 2 cards in one evening. Here they are.

I stamped the blue card and the pink card. I've used Making Memories patterned papers and Creative Memories Card stock (I knew I'd use it one day). Of course I'm using my wonderful pens for inks. I likie likie.

Mothers day stash and another card

As promised, here is the present that my wonderful husband bought me for Mothers Day.

Isn't he just the best. I nominate him for best husband in the universe.

I sat down this afternoon and put some stamps together, and had a wonderful idea for a card, but on trying it it didn't work. But I didn't let that preturb me, I plugged on and came up with this:

Although its a lot simpler than a lot of cards I see out there, I think its lovely. Lilacs are my favourite flower, the smell of them is glorious, the colour and the way they hang off their branches.

I used some old Creative Memories card stock, (I knew it would come in handy one day), white Bazzil, and Petal Prints stamp. Of course I used my new pens, Lovely Lilac, Chocolate Chip, Handsom Hunter and Elegant Eggplant.

I like it, I like it. I was going to give it to a friend, but now I'm having second thoughts. I think I might have to start making doubles.

Monday Monday

Hello World!

I'm in a bit of a nutty mood today, so bear with me.

Thanks to the loverly people who commented on my card I made. I love it so much, I've made an identical one.

My dh who is so wonderful gave me lots of Stampin Up supplies for Mothers Day, including the full collection of pens. Drool worthy right? I had a little play with them last night, but nothing I was happy with. 3 sets of stamps as well, including my favourite Fifth Avenue Floral. I cant wait to play with those. I'll have to have a friend over to play this week I think.

No photos today, but I will take a photo of my stash of stuff I got for mothers day, later on.

Off to read other peoples blogs and see what they do with the stamps I got.

Mothers day card

Ok here is The card. What do you think?

So Saturday

It didn't start too good. What with the girls waking me up early, giggling and thumping on the wall. I felt like thumping them, but I didn't. I finished my card today, but I'm waiting on the battery on the camera to charge so I cant take a photo yet either. But I will. In the mean time, take a look at this blog


while you are waiting. Isn't it gorjuss? Isn't she clever. Love those stamps.

Life is so stressful at the moment.

Today was a busy one as per usual, and hopefully the worst for the week. Tomorrow will be a better day.
