My TOP 10 for 2011

I follow the adorable Miss Waffle's blog aka Kellie Winnell and she's hosting a.. yes, I'm joining in!!
So funny and a little scary going back through my creations this past year. Some I thought were wonderful just aren't that wonderful 12 months later!! lol.

Here's what I've found...

 A little bottle of handmade vanilla room spray.

My favourite Christmas card this year because it isn't RED!!

 Saturated Canary Image that I coloured for my 5yr old's birthday. I've fallen head over heals in love with these cuties! Thanks Krista.

 My 1st bookmark (also inspired by the contagious Kellie!) I love the simplicity of this one!

 My Wee Image card that won me Top 3 at WOCC.

TPS image Fairy Kira. Pretty in pink!


I'm not usually the animal lover on cards but I loved this little cutie from Pollycraft and I surprised myself on how it turned out!

I love the vintage look and another cute Pollycraft image.

I struggle a lot with Male cards but loved the finished look with this TPS image.

Last but not least, a baby card that's extra special as it was given to my new little (tiny in fact) nephew, Mitchell ♥

Phew!! Lucky I only had to find 10.
Thanks Kellie, it was quite funny going back in time!

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas.

Just for fun!

I'm still trying to get back into the 'enjoyment' of making my cards.
I finally ordered a stamp that I've been wanting for a long time now. A gorgeous 'boy' stamp from Lili of the Valley. Although my 'male' collection has grown a little, I still wanted this one!!
I found a sketch that suited my image size and this card was coloured and made in less than an hour!!! Can you believe that?
No pressure, no time lines and yes, I relaxed a little. :) Maybe because this guy is sooo relaxed?? I was so relaxed that I didn't even notice the 'extra' piece of twine left on my card!! Can you see it? lol.

I love this image as I think it's so versitile. It could be for a little boy or a granddad. Love it.

I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday so I'm entering my card into their challenge this week.

Something I Love!

2 posts in 1 day! I know right!
I couldn't help myself. Finally I created something that I'm quite proud of.
I made up some vanilla room spray mix and put them in little plastic spray bottles.
Then came the hard part. Decorating them!! Arrrgghhh.
Well after  a bit of messing about and adjustments, I came up with this.

I printed some images from The Graphics Fairy, cut, punched and inked and da dah!! Of course I had to add ribbon, flowers and some bling.

A little magnolia tag with the name of the scent and of course the most important info, "shake well". hee hee.
So....what do you think? Do they look ok to sell at a market? That was my intention but of course need blogging buddy approval :)

Love to hear what you think. Thanks ♥

Need more Christmas cards!!

Well I forced myself to sit and create some more Christmas cards while I still had my copics out from my last creation. I'm struggling trying to get back into it so went on a search for a sketch. I found a few but the one from Sketch Saturday best suited my image I had already printed out.

Yep, another 'big head'. lol.

Once again I've used a Tickled Pink Stamps image, "Lil Victorian Christmas Lolita, Lylah". She's available in digi for only $4 AUS. Hey and then you can do 'big heads' as well :) lol.

I also quickly made up this card using 1 of the freebies from Wee Stamps. So generous to give out some Christmas spirit! Such a quick image to colour up too.

Phew! I'm exhausted. Hee hee.
I hope you're all getting prepared for Christmas, remembering to have fun!!

I made a card!!

I know this is easy for most of you but since my mojo up and went on holidays I haven't been able to put copic to paper :(```
I sat down today and got inspired by the beautiful Christmas images of 2010 from Tickled Pink Stamps.
I've just noticed that Kellie still has some of these Lil Christmas Lolitas left in store with a SALE here.

So as I'm not a huge red and green Christmas fan, I decided to go the more suttle aquas for my card.
I think it worked out ok?

The sentiment is also from Tickled Pink Stamps Store.

Now that I've broken the drought, hopefully I can make some more cards! I think I've left it too late to make my cards for THIS christmas but I can make a start for 2012 right? lol.

Odd one out?

Thougt I'd pop into blog land here for a bit to show you what I've been up to!
It's all Debbie's fault. lol. She'd created some gorgeous candles a little while back that inspired me to give it a go. I love doing these so much that I've decided to make some for our local market this weekend. I figure if they don't sell then our home will be filled with beautiful candles for Christmas ;)

Can you pick the odd one out? I've got that song from Sesame Street stuck in my head! "One of these things doesn't belong here, one of things isn't quite the same......" lol.

Did you find it?
Obviously I've flooded the candles with the gorgeous images from Magnolia but at the last minute remembered the digi image from Krista at Saturated Canary.
I think she looks lovely on a decorated candle.

These are for teacher's christmas gifts but made a larger one for our family to keep.

Thanks Debalicious!! If you need some inspiration then pop over to Debbie's blog here and tell her I said 'Hi'.

I'm also entering this into the Magnolia Down Under Challenge which is to make a Christmas Ornament. Does this count?

Playing around!

I feel like a stranger in in blog land at the moment and nearly forgot how to type up a post!! lol.

My crazy life here is only getting crazier. You think you have it all under control and then 'BAM'. Such is life ey?

I finally got copic to paper last week and had some 'chill' time to myself.
I'm head over heels in love with Krista's Saturated Canary digi's. They are too adorable. This little cutie is simply called 'Kite' and a dream to colour up.

I added some cream lace, vintage seam binding, flowers, glimmer mist, liquid pearls and ta dah!! A card completed that I'm actually happy with!
Let's see if I can get another card completed in the next couple of weeks. It looks like I might be buying my Christmas cards this year. Oooops! lol.

Hope you're all well and getting ready for the jolly man in red!

A little song for you (and eye candy!!)

It's time for a little change here for me.
I've stepped down from my DT commitments for a little while to get my personal life back on track and to spend time with my family.
I thought I'd share my favourite song with you so every time you hear it you might think of me! lol.
I love the song but I think it's the video clip that I can't get enough of! Adam and no shirt, Oh my giddy Aunt!! I've been a fan of Maroon 5 for so many years and have never seen him like this before. Why not??? lol.
Enjoy ladies ;)

I hope I've done this right and it works for you.
I'm also linking this to the blog called "Music Saves My Soul". (Marcea's crafting corner) I hope you like my choice.

Tickled Pink's 2nd Birthday!!

It's Tickled Pink's 2nd Birthday and it's time to celebrate with a Blog Hop!!
As you've already guessed, Kellie (owner of TPS) has prizes, prizes, prizes!!
Need to know more? Pop over to the Tickled Pink Stamps Blog and join in the fun.
If you have arrived here from the lovely Jeanette's blog then you are on the right track! If not, head back here to find the list.

I've created a card using my all time favourite image. The original and what I think is the best, Lil Lolita Lilith. Love this girl to death. Kellie can make her into any character and she just rocks it. I couldn't have her alone on my card so I thought I'd pair her up with the very handsome Lil Valentine Lad Luca.

I've made a tag card and followed the instructions from the delightful Jane again. They're sooooo easy.
I've made I suppose what you'd call a non-traditional christmas card. I'm not a huge red fan so I thought I'd make it a little different. I used some Webster's Pages and coloured my images to match those. And yes, there are a couple of buttons as well :)
This week Tickled Pink Stamps is proud to be sponsoring Crafting When We Can with their Christmas Comes Early challenge. Hence my christmas card! lol. There are Tickled Pink Stamps prizes up for grabs so we hope you pop on over and play along too.

Now, on with the hop. Jump on over to the amazing Maya's blog and see what delicious eye candy she has waiting for you. Don't forget to have fun!!

Another October Birthday in our house!

October is a huge month for us for birthdays!!
Just celebrated my own, my 5 yr old daughter, my Mum's and now it's my 'big' girls special day today!
Miki also shared her birthday with her Great Grandmother who is no longer with us.
No wonder I put all this weight on in October with ALL of these cakes!!
Tonight we celebrate with Mikaela's favourite cheese cake which will be our dessert after her favourite home cooked meal, Roast Pork Dinner! (with gravy of course!) lol.
Here's the card we gave to her this morning along with some money inside. I also have her favourite frozen berries (raspberries) waiting for her when she gets home from school :)

Miki doesn't like me putting pics up of her but I WILL!! Just don't tell her ok??

She is sooo going to hate me for this one. She likes photography but her main subject is her little sister Jorjia, so there weren't too many with just Miki on her own.
Don't I make the cutest kids?? lol. And, no...they're not fake eylashes but yes...they are loaded with mascara. She loves that stuff!! lol.

Anyway, that's all from me today. I hope you're all having a fantastic day!

Happy Birthday Sweet-heart!

Just quickly popping in to show you the card I made for my little girl's birthday.
We had a party for her on the weekend and she absolutely loved it.We hired a small jumping castle and her Dad made all the kids scream!
She chose a Freddo Frog Ice-cream cake so that made me happy! No cake decorating this year for me. Whoo hoo.
So here's the card I made for her using the sketch from the new challenge blog, Saturated Canary.
This reminds me of Jorjia so much. She has wild curly hair and I'm imagining to look like this as it keeps growing! lol.
So of course I've entered this into Saturated Canary's challenge this week.

Here's a little pic of Jorjia, blowing out her candle.
Can't believe she's heading off to Primary School next year.

Thanks for taking the time and stopping by today.

Challenge time!

Welcome to another challenge over at Pollycraft. This week the lovely Arabella chose the theme as...
"Tags & Bookmarks"
I've made a little bookmark using the sweet Sonny Honeycloud - 'Poetry'.

These are so quick and simple to make up and you can use your stash of scraps to make them. (I did!) These were papers I used on a previous project and they were still on my desk. (yes I'm a messy cardmaker!)
I added some MS butterflies (inked and pearled), some vintage seam binding and my favourite, a button!! I also added a little glossy accents to her glasses.

I hope you can join in with this challenge at Pollycraft. The possibilities are endless and I can't wait to see what you create!

New Images and a new Challenge Blog!

Well I sat down last night and coloured in my new AMAZING images from Krista at Saturated Canary. I couldn't resisit buying these cuties and then she decided to release some more! So guess what? Yep, I went shopping again only this morning!!! I think I'm in 'luuuuurve' with these digi images. You can get some too at her Etsy store HERE.
Of course I like to follow a sketch and while surfing the net I discovered there's a new Challenge Blog in town! Whoo hoo. So I followed Debra's sketch from "Friday Sketch Challenge".

I only used a couple of colour groups as I wanted to keep it simple. I didn't have the right coloured roses so I coloured them with my copics!
The sentiment is from the Valentine Sentiments stamp set from Tickled Pink Stamps.
This card is going to a very dear and special friend, Jackie, who sadly lost her Pop yesterday. Love you Jack! xx

"Baby Love"

The only thing to get excited about on a Monday is a challenge for all the crafter's out there at Pollycraft!
It's even more exciting this week as it's my turn to choose the theme!
With all the chat about babies and our very own DT girl Emma due to have her baby in only 5 weeks, I thought I'd set the theme as...
My sister has also just had her baby, a tiny, tiny bundle of baby blue!! Hopefully my scheduled post here has worked and I've made the trip to visit them and having snuggles as you read this. hee hee.
*no, haven't left yet. :( They're still in hospital after a little trouble but both are doing well now*

I've used one of the images from the fairly new Baby Love Collection.

I've already completed a baby boy card for my gorgeous new nephew so I thought I'd do a 'pink one'.
I loaded it full of flower power added some lace, a bow, pearls, charm, butterflies with some trailing liquid pearls. I'm so addicted to this stuff now! So much so I didn't add an old favourite of mine....a button!?
I also put some glitter on the flowers but it hasn't turned out so well in the picture.
Our amazing sponsor this week is

The lucky winner will receive a £10 voucher to spend in store!
I hope to see you in the Pollycraft Challenge this week.

Pollycraft Challenge Time!

Happy Monday crafters!
Yes I'm late, I'm late!! AAARRRHHH!
But better late than never right?

This week in our Pollycraft Challenge, the Sassy Sheena has chosen the theme of:

So we want to see reds, oranges, browns, etc in your creations.

I'm not great with these colours so it was a  little bit of a struggle but I found these fantastic papers to help me out.
I also struggled for an idea so I searched for a sketch and found an awesome one over at Sketch Saturday. Phew! lol.
I've used the gorgeous Pollycraft Image "Flower Girl" from the Swings 'n Slides #2 collection.
I've also used some Liquid Pearls on here for the first time. I bought some a couple of days ago and thought I'd try it out. Don't look too closely though as I dropped it before it had dried. Well that's what I get for running late and trying to get a picture of it hot off the press!! lol.
This week we are delighted to be sponsored by
Bunny Zoes Crafts
who are offering the lucky winner a £10 voucher to spend .
