Oh no, panic, panic!!

No don't panic. Crisis averted.
Well my 1st sketch challenge was nearly a head on collision! All of you lovely ladies out there were just too sweet to even tell me I goofed!
When entering a challenge at 'Anyone for Anya', you are meant to used an Anya or Greeting Farm image. Well my card had a Sarah Kay image on it didn't it!? So I can still enter this card but would be unable to win. So I hit panic mode and quickly whipped up this next card. Oh and look at that, it has an Anya image on it. Clever me ;)

Whew, now I can breathe again.
The plain CS is SU Brocade Blue and Bravo Burgundy. The border punch is also SU eyelet punch. The DP, clear pearls and main flowers are from Bec's online store. I sprayed them with Pearl Shimmerz and added Ice Stickles to her headband and bobbles.
Well with that done and dusted, it's nearly midnight so "Happy New Year" to you all.
(I'm off to bed :0)

My 1st Sketch Challenge

I followed the Anyone For Anya sketch this week and thought I might enter it. Well that's if I figure out how to do it. It's my first ever challenge I'm going to enter so cross your fingers and toes for me. (It's randomly picked so it's pure luck).
I've made this for my dear friends, Jackie and her gorgeous family. They are deserting me next week as they have been posted to Canberra. How rude!!

I loved making this card. I love this Sarah Kay image. I just started colouring her with my copics and just wouldn't you know it, I used my favourite colours. Well that's not really fair to say now as I have a few favourites now. Ssshhh, don't tell my other copics ;) I used dimensional magic on the bow and flowers. The pink ribbon, white pearl ribbon slide, leaf border punch and flowers are all from Bec's Online Store. (link in my side bar). The plain CS is Stampin Up's Pretty in Pink and Chocolate Chip. The border punch is my new one from Martha Stewart.

Finished in the nick of time!

Not sure why this card took me so long but here it is. This one is for my dear friend Jackie and her family. Mmmm, maybe it was the pressure of making a card for someone so talented!!

This cute little digi image is from Simply Inger and I've coloured her up with my copics. The papers, diamond dust, ticket stub and pearl brad are from Bec's online store, I've used my brand new Martha Stewart border punch and the ribbon is So Saffron from SU.
Yay, I've finished it just in time for Christmas. I will be seeing Jack and her family for an early morning cook up for breakfast and I will be able to give it to them then.
I hope everyone is ready for Christmas and that you all have a wonderful day surrounded by family and good friends. I hope we all eat too much and have Nanna naps in the afternoon ;)

Another Birthday

Yet another birthday card.
This one is for gorgeous friend Jay. "Happy Birthday Jay!!"
My dear friend of 15 years celebrates her birthday Christmas Eve!
I've chosen this Victoria Case image as when I first seen it, it reminded me of Jay. Jay has that wonderful curvacious womanly body and I've always teased her of her perfect butt! No matter what size she is, she always looks ALL woman and dressed to impress. (Killer heels!). Jay also has one or two tatts like this image.

I've used DCWV papers and used my brand new Martha Stewart border punch. These gorgeous flowers are from Bec's online store. Of course I've coloured her with my precious copics.

"Happy Birthday Nat"

Happy Birthday Natalie.
This card I made last night for a friend of mine. I picked this image as it actually reminds me of her a little.

The patterned paper, roses and ticket stub are all from Bec. The plain paper is Stampin' up and the flowers are Kaisercraft.
I've coloured her using my gorgeous Copics. I just love these markers. I colour more images than I make into cards, so I better get on top of that!
I hope you like my card. I have more red on this card than I do my Christmas cards.
Keep creating, Kylie xo.

I've done it!!

I'm done!!
Well just about but you were surprised right? And you all thought I'd have to buy my cards this year didn't you! (I did!).
I have a couple of 'special' ones I need to put together but now for the hard part. Writing on them all and posting them. AAAggghh, I hate the addressing part.

My son has a last minute party to go to today and of course I didn't have a male card handy, so I whipped this up quickly. Notice the paper? I've used the scraps from my christmas cards above. The scraps were all laying around and they matched this image perfectly, so I put them to good use.
This is Ian from The Greeting Farm. Love these images.

Well I wish you all a great weekend and good luck with all your Christmas cards.

Summer Fairy

I just love these digi fairies from The greeting Farm. This one is called Summer Fairy.

I've coloured her using my copics. The cs is SU Close to Cocoa, the tulip and music sheet papers are Bec's digi papers as is the ticket stub and flowers. I've added stickles to the flowers and the centre of the coloured flower. The lace and crystal spray is from my stash.
This card came together so easily. I just love it when that happens. It's also my fav colour combo so I'm happy :)
I'm trying to get my christmas cards finished but now waiting on some more cardstock to arrive. (any excuse, right?!) I will get them done but people may not receive them until AFTER Christmas! I hope not. I like to have them out early but that's not going to happen this year. People are probably already thinking I've forgotten about them! Don't worry, they're coming! (eventually).

"Happy Birthday Lauren"

"This is my 2nd post for today. Please scroll down for my 1st"
"Happy Birthday" for tomorrow Loz.
I've had Lauren's gift for some time now but only realised this afternoon that I hadn't wrapped it and her party is tonight!!
I got this tutorial from Splitcoaststampers. It's a gable box by Regina Andari.

I've used SU elegant eggplant and Basic Grey cs to go with the card we'll be giving Loz for her birthday. Here. Also used SU 'Oval All' stamp set again.
This is another Greeting Farm digi image called Winter Fairy. It's a shame I had to cut her dress off but you've gotta do what ya gotta do!! It was all in the name of 'craft' so that makes it ok.
Yes I know the ribbon is off centre so lets just pretend that's the way its supposed to be :)
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend.

Dad's Card

This is a get well card I made for my Dad who has just left hospital after suffering a brain bleed. The doctors said we are vey lucky to have him. (I say they were lucky to have found his brain. lol.) Apparently this hasn't changed his outlook on life and is still the same 'old grumpy buggar' he used to be. I'm sure secretly he is thankful to be able to spend more time with his family especially with Christmas around the corner!

I found this image at Lost in paper scraps by Dawn Moore. Although it doesn't look like my Dad it still reminded me of him. lol.
I coloured him using my copics which are not so hazardous to my health anymore. You'll be happy to know that I don't hold my breath when I colour now! They are now only hazardous to my bank account!
I've used Stampin' up's Sahara sand cs and ink and their 'Oval All' stamp set. The patterned paper is Kaisercraft and the buttons and ribbon are from my stash.
Happy to have you safe at home Dad.

This is NOT a typical card for Jackie. She is love with all the pixies and fairies and as much glitter as one can handle. So of course she would be expecting a beautiful glittered fairy card but NOOOO. Not this time.
So what else does Jackie like? Diamonds, Edward (Twilight), mmmm, of course!! Edward's skin in the sunlight dazzles like diamonds, so a card of Edward (showing a little flesh) covered in diamonds! (stop it Jackie, I can see you drooling!).

Here is a close up of the ticket punch I got from Bec's new digi shop. I glittered around the edge but it's a bit hard to see.
I thought the sentiment was perfect for Jackie, especially when she seen the print out of it yesterday and loved it!!
"Happy Birthday my dear friend"

On another happy note, my Dad came home from hospital late yesterday. He's doing really well but there are still some hurdles. Just happy to have him with us.
