Baby processing...

Was so excited to hear that my cousin is expecting her first child in December. She was also my flowergirl 24 years ago! lol.
I also discovered these fantastic images from Slinky♥Tart. This little image with "Baby Processing. Please wait" written accross her tummy was perfect to send to my cousin.

I used a new die, burlap ribbon, lace and of course my favourite....buttons :)

I am going to enter this into Cute Card Thursday Challenge which requires lace.

Mother's Day

Trying to find my mojo and get back into my love of copics and card creating again.
I bought this sweet little bird cage die to help spark some creativeness. (any excuse to buy more crafty goodies right?!)

I had already coloured this gorgeous Magnolia image a little while ago. I actually coloured up 4 as we had a terrible storm and ended up having no power for 3 days. My girls and I sat at the kitchen table colouring together. A moment to treasure :)
It's really hard to try and piece a card together after not being in the groove of it for so long but I had fun playing. Especially when I had a new die to play with!
I sent this to my Mum for Mother's Day and she loved it which is all that matters.

I've entered my creation into a first challenge for a couple of years. Eeeiikkk!! lol

Surely Not?

Check out my last post date. Geez!

Have I really not posted anything for 2 years? Has my life really been that crazy? My jaw is still resting on the floor! How I've missed my babies (copics).
Slowly been renovating my house and that terrible thing called work have just gotten in the way of my mojo and craft time.
Is there anyone still here?? lol Well just in case I'd love to share a card I made for my gorgeous niece who just turned sweet 16. I chose a Saturated Canary digi as my niece looks just like her and even wears a check shirt tied around her waste.
Colouring was so therapeutic, using my big shot was fun and the mess meant I had actually created something. Go me, yay!

I plan to be spending more time creating so I hope to see you back here.

It’s me again!

I know, I know Winking smile
It’s been a little while once again but I did promise you another card.

Just returned home from a little holiday with my BFF Jackie and her beautiful family. We had such a relaxing and fun time as always and I find myself energised and ready to go again. I can’t believe this was my first trip there that we DIDN’T go in the ‘craft room’!! Can you believe it? No crafting what so ever this trip but we did visit the local craft store Winking smile
I made this one for one of my daughter’s friends. Her favourite colour is blue which I didn’t know at the time so it worked in well.


This is another adorable image created by Krista at Saturated Canary. This one is “Sabrina”.
(it looks lopsided but it was the way I took the pic. Promise ;) )

Well I better start my clean up and my BIG pile of washing after being away.
We’re also trying to rescue 2 male kittens this weekend and we’re off to meet them to see if they’d like to live with us. They are just too cute, Toby and Ollie. Will post pics if we’re successful.

Thanks for stopping by my little neglected blog.

NOOOO! Is it possible??

So sorry to leave you all stranded here on my lonely blog. My family and I have had such a whirlwind last few months to put it mildly and I’m trying to connect back with the things that I love and that bring me joy. Of course colouring is one of these things BUT when I sat down to colour I hit a blank! What colours were my ‘go to’ colours, how do I blend, HOW DO I COLOUR??? Was it possible that I had forgotten how to colour with my precious Copics?? NOOOOO!! LOL.
Let me tell you it was NOT like riding a bike. I couldn’t get back on and remember how to do it. I really did struggle.
I made 2 cards for special birthdays and I wanted to share them with you regardless of the struggles I had trying to remember my love of copics Smile


This one I made for a special little girl who was turning 4. Such a fun and bright card to make. I also tried the new (new to me!) watercolour background. I was even stumped on how to piece a card together. I went for my favourites to save me of buttons, bling, flowers and lace and made what I thought to be a fresh and fun card.
The image is ‘Ellie’s Birthday” from Saturated Canary.

I’m going to enter this into the following challenges just for fun!!

Creative Inspirations – Spring colours
Cute Card Thursday – Anything Goes
Stampin’ for the weekend – Child’s play

I think I’ll save my other card so I have something to show you again in a few days time!
Thanks for stopping by.

Been Awhile :)

WOW! I cannot believe that Christmas is almost upon us and I’ve barely started shopping! We’ve also asked Santa if we could have our Christmas a little early so the kiddlins and myself can drive down to Victoria to spend the ‘real’ Christmas day with family we haven’t seen in quite a few years! I can’t wait to meet their extended families and chat, chat, chat……..
I’m late in getting some birthday cards out too and it’s been soooo long since I’ve created a card to share with you all. I needed some therapy today so thought I would join in the fun over at Magnolia Down Under Challenges with Kylie’s sketch.


I’d coloured this cutie up awhile ago so it was just calling out for me to give it a home. I also had no baby boy cards left in my stash so why not?  A few of my favourite things were added and da dah!! hee hee.
Have you finished your Christmas shopping? No, don’t tell me. I better get moving then hey?! lol.
Thanks for stopping by my little blog and I hope you’re having a great day!

Sweet Sixteen!!

Just wanted to share the card I made for my beautiful daughter’s 16th birthday.
I didn’t even start this card until THE DAY of her birthday as I wasn’t feeling that well. I let her pick out the image and I’m so proud she picked a Saturated Canary image “Hippie Love”. This is the first time I’ve coloured this cutie up as well and she was fun to do.


I used some Webster’s Pages, lace, bling and rose ribbon I got from WOC.
We all went out for dinner and then came home to an awesome mud cake which was soooo rich but delicious.

I can’t believe my little girl is growing up this quickly but very proud of the beautiful and caring young lady she’s becoming. That’s not to say that she’s not your typical teenager though!! lol.

Hope you all have a great week and hope you stay cool if her in OZ as our hot weather is here! Yay!!

50 and not out!

My completed ‘commissioned’ card thanks with the help of my gorgeous crafty friends!
I had to make a card for someone who was turning 50 and the lady wanted a cricket image on the front. Well I never knew it would be so hard to find one!! There is everything else but cricket images out there. I put out a plea asking for help and my friends came through for me. Thank goodness for that as I don’t like to disappoint people. Then of course comes the stress of if they ‘like it’. We all have such different tastes and perceptions on how certain things should look, so I hope this will do the job Smile


I’m still not sure on how much I can ‘bling’ up a male card but I just luuurve buttons and so they managed to find their way on there…in a manly way of course Winking smile

I'm entering this into Sentimental Sunday Challenge. I have 3 papers, 2 binding, 1 brad and a sentiment. Check!

Well I better go and wash my clothes AGAIN!! We have a puppy (LARGE puppy) with us and it decided to have fun with the clothes on the washing line. Gggggrrrrrr. Needless to say it’s now going to go back where she’s supposed to be!! YAY.

Step back in time!

I was asked to make a 20’s style 40th birthday card in greens and blues. Well what image could be better than the gorgeous “Lil Lolita 20’s Evie”?? She’s just so sweet and a dream to colour.


I added a few of my favourite things such as pearls, lace, flowers and a charm.
Thank goodness they loved it. I’m always nervous when I’m asked to make something for someone as our tastes vary so much from styles and colours. Phew!! lol.

I’m entering this card into the following challenges.

I hope the Aussie mum’s out there are enjoying the school holidays. We have family visiting us today so I better finish cleaning! GGRRR.
