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?
