Pawprints… and some flowers!

Today I have a cat sympathy card to share, I just love this sweet image from Tiddly Inks and think it’s perfect for such a sad occasion.

While I’ve got you here I thought I would also share some pics of the flowers in our garden, I would love to say that it’s my green thumb, but I’d be lying, it’s all my husbands hard work that keeps our yard and vege garden blooming.

We’ve been sooo busy lately, just got back from the Hunter Valley (a wine district near Sydney) where we had the most amazing time celebrating a friend’s 40th birthday and this weekend it’s off to Rockhampton, an 8 hour road trip each way….    I really hope to find some crafty time very soon (cross my fingers maybe next week things will return to some kinda normality lol.

Rockin’ those Spring digi’s!

My wonderful friend Jackie has created the most awesome digital collections which she is (get this) giving away for free…  now who can’t afford that.  She has also been having some fun cas challenges on her blog giving us the chance to use these fab stamps.   I gotta say that my most fave thing about digi’s is that you can resize them, so I made mine BIG, and I couldn’t resist adding this cute little bee from Lisa Lara’s Bumbles set!

Welcome back, it’s time for a new sketch challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps!  I kinda struggled with this one, and just when I thought that I was getting better at sketch challenges…   so after totally ditching the first card, I thought I would play with my Inktense pencils again and I also printed out some digital paper on AnnaBelle Stamps light weight cardstock which is just perfect for layering!

Print Candee – Anything Goes!

It’s time again for another blog hop with Print Candee!  Today is a little sad as it’s our last hop, but I gotta say it’s been the most amazing experience being a part of this very talented team and Jocelyn has been the most awesome coordinator!   Our theme is ‘Anything Goes‘, which is actually very difficult when there are soooo many fabulous digi images,cliparts and design papers to choose from at Print Candee.   I thought that my card for today had the perfect sentiment…   and I definitely will miss you all (but you can’t get rid of me that easily, I’ll be visiting for sure)!!   From here you are off to visit Kalyn’s blog.

Tama’s Birthday!

So I had heaps of fun creating this awesome bright ‘monstery’ card for a little boy we know (called Tama-iti, or just Tama for short – it’s a Maori name, just in case you were wondering).  I kinda went a bit digital crazy at Print Candee, which is not hard to do.  These images are awesome and I can see just so many uses for a paint splatter, how much fun is that!  I made this card a little while ago and realized that I hadn’t shared it…  hope you are having a great week,  I’ll be back tomorrow with a Print Candee Blog Hop, see you then!
