Cheerful Card

Wow it's been awhile since I've shared something new.
We've all been very busy organising my partner who is being deployed tomorrow.
I've also been busy with phone calls both from my sister and Mum with news on my Dad who is unwell in hospital. Without going into all the details, he has had a brain bleed and after all the procedures he is doing well. Another few days yet left in hospital until he passes the danger periond and then hopefully he will be allowed home.
Now enough of the sad news and on with a card!

I coloured this gorgeous Anya image quite awhile ago. My pile of coloured images seems to be growing (because I love using my Copics!!) and so I thought I better start putting them onto cards!! This is a bright and cheery card for keeping away those blues.
I hope everyone has a lovely day and I'll be around to check on your blogs soon.

Pixie Chick

Another digital stamp. This one is from Pixie Chicks.
This time I followed some advice I've been getting from all of the lovely ladies in blog land. First I got some paper, then a sketch and lastly coloured my image. I think it worked. It certainly was a lot easier. At least this coloured image didn't go into the ever growing pile of coloured images that I can't seem to put on a card!!
The papers, border and flowers are all from Bizzy Bec's.
Have to run. Looking for a new washing machine and want to get it done before it gets too hot.
Talking about the weather, we had a massive thunder and lightning show here last night. It would have to be the LOUDEST one we have had yet! It sounded soooo angry. My 13yr old daughter hates storms and as usual came bolting into my room. The lightning was so bright she thought I had the blinds open and asked me to close them!
I hope you all have some way of keeping cool over this scorching weekend. Tomorrow is forecast for the 40's. (thank goodness for airconditioning!!).

My Dark Side

I just love my new set of digi's from CC designs. This one is called 'Gossamer'.

I loved colouring this one in with my copics. (and Jackie's copics too. Thanks Jack!) Jackie also showed me a different technique for shading in her dress. It took me forever but I think it was well worth it.
I used SU Perfect Plum and Basic Grey papers along with DCWV printed paper. SU basic grey ribbon, Kaisercraft flowers and the rest is from my own stash.
Yay, the weekend is here but wow what a scorcher it's going to be. 37 degrees with thunderstorms. Still, we are not going to be as hot as Adelaide and I do have airconditioning. Great day to stay in and stamp I say!!

Bec's Free Digi

Well I've just created my 1st Christmas card, can you believe it? Has anyone else NOT started yet?
Bec has a free digi at the moment over on her blog. It's the christmas ticket thats on my card. Cute ey?

The printed paper is also from Bec's store. I was going to enter this in the Creatalicious Challenge but I don't think there's enough glitter on it. I was then going to enter it in the Mojo Monday challenge but I changed the sketch a little and then it all became too hard. So what now you say? Well it's my 1st Christmas card and I posted it for eveyone just to enjoy! So....enjoy!!
Yeah I know, I can hear you... go and make some christmas cards as it's only around the corner. I will, soon, promise. (oooh no, I shouldn't promise.)

"Happy Birthday Jax"

I have just had a fantastic weekend away with the girls at Sydney's Fashion Weekend. The 'girls' being Nat, Nik & Danielle. I drove into Sydney for the very first time which I was quite a bit nervous about but I had the Navman and a well travelled 'Deej' in the back seat. (Thanks again Danielle). Poor Deej was also on crutches as she has not long had knee surgery. She was an absolute trooper all weekend even with her swollen and bruised leg, she had a blast. I think the rest of us complained more as we were all silly enough to wear heels at the fashion show! Those babies soon came off when we got back to the appartment and our feet went into the pool! (aaaahhh, sigh of relief!) Note to self: 'Don't wear heels when on an all day shopping extravaganza!" We headed out that night (in flats!) and had a fantastic night but, 'what happenes on camp, stays on camp! lol.
Well enough of me. I want to wish my nephew Jackson a wonderful birthday, so "HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAX". Love ya mate.

This is a digi stamp found somewhere out in cyber space. So please, if this is yours let me know so I can give you the credit for such a fantastic 'pirate dragon'.( Late note: Thanks Cheryl. I think this is a Dustin Pike dragon but I can no longer find this particular one. There are many more to choose from though. Go and have a peek Here.)
Yes, I used my 'health hazards' (my copics) to colour this guy in. He was a bit of fun to do and I had to put him together fairly quickly as I forgot that I needed to make it a week ahead. My nephew lives in country Vic and the mail takes a few days to get there and so I had to put my skates on to get it finished in time.
I hope all of you had a fantastic weekend also either stamping or just hanging with family and/or friends.

I've still been practicing with my copics and have coloured a few images now. The really frustrating bit is how to assemble the card without taking it away from your image.
Jackie mentioned over at her blog today how hard it is to assemble a card once you've coloured your image. (feel your pain Jack!)
It took me a whole night to piece this baby together. It made it harder when I buggered (Aussie slang) up the sponging around the outside of Tilda. Yes, that's why there is a tab hanging off the side!!
Maybe I need more bits and pieces to make it easier!! You know, a broader choice of goodies to paste on the page. lol.

It does make it a lot easier though when you have a little stash of Bec's papers. (Love that online shop). This little Tilda image was included in one of Bec's kits. Gorgeous isn't she? (yes, Bec too. lol)

Once again I've used copics to colour but these shades are from Jackie's collection until I can add more to mine. Thanks Jack.

The cs is from SU and is Old Olive and Really Rust. The printed paper is from Bec as is the rose and the butterfly.
Hope you all have a lovely day stamping.

No Pinks!

Yes, still loving copics. I am learning to breathe gently out of my nose now when I colour. Go me!! (Still no large areas for the moment though).
I wanted to do a 'pink' card for Jackie's dear Nan who is having a birthday on rememberance day. "Happy Birthday Mammy!"
I asked Jack what her favourite colour was and the answer was pink. I wanted to use my new Anya stamp (isn't she gorgeous!) and decided to do a pink card of course. BUT guess what? I HAVE NO PINK COPICS!! Can you believe that. MY fav colour combo is pink and green and yet I have no pink copics. (except for R20 for the cheeks of course).
I told you I need more copics. Look out Christmas!
I made do with what I had and so used my beautiful greens and then incorporated pinks with papers and embellishments. The beautiful pink and white roses are from Bec's store along with the patterned papers.

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend. It's meant to be raining here again tomorrow so I'll just have to stay inside and stamp. (whoo hoo).
Keep creating, Kylie xo.

Halloween Goodie Boxes

Just a quick post today. I wanted to show you the goodie bags I made for my daughter's Halloween themed birthday party. They were filled with 'eyeballs', 'ears', 'tongues', 'spider rings', 'zombie chews' and a few other goodies.

These were made before I got my copics. I so appreciate now what the copics are capable of. Yes I still luuurrve them and very busy practicing. I had a fabulous day yesterday 'practicing' with Jackie and Vicki. Thanks girls. (and of course a lot of chatting!) I sooo have to get more. It was great being able to share the other girl's copics and using some different colours. At the moment I am just rearranging colours to make each image 'appear' to be coloured differently. My eyes are hanging out of my head as I just can't seem to put the copics down, hence the late nights!!
I am starting to 'breathe' now when I colour but I discovered yesterday I can't colour and talk at the same time!
More practice please girls!!!

More Copics

Yes I need more 'health hazards' (copics). I'm trying to colour some different images in and get some pracitce using my new babies but I don't even have my favourite colour of pink! I wonder if my family really need to eat this week? Well I know I would survive on my copics alone. lol.
I made this card for Anne-Maree's birthday. "Happy Birthday!"
I've used a stamp image the lovely Bec sent to me. The beautiful patterned paper and flowers are from Bec's online shop. Here. The other paper is Stampin' Up's So Saffron and Bashful Blue. SU So Saffron ribbon and sentiment. The pin was in my stash.

Congrats also to Jackie who had a fantastic Christmas workshop yesterday. Hope we get another one in before you leave. :(
