When i first saw these colours i thought yuck!!! But i actually like them together, i tried a different layout with this card, it didn't really turn out like the picture i had in my head but nevertheless this is what happened!! Lol!!! I will be sad to see Purely Pomegranate disappear in a few days - really love that colour, but am starting to warm up to the new in colours as i have used them a bit lately! Right time to go and have a shower and clean up my house - oh the joys!! Lol!! Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.


Love these colours this week, the first stamp that came to mind was the giraffe out of wild about you (i love that set) and i used lovely labels. Now i will load up the colour throwdown!

Well i have been missing in action!!! It has been 6 days, nevermind i am back now - i have just started a new job this week so i am finding a routine, unfortunately my creating time has been left till last but i found some time this afternoon and got 3 challenges done, mojo monday being the first, i had to make another birthday card so used this for it. I have used chocolate chip, very vanilla and kiwi kiss card stock and the new DSP called Good Morning Sunshine, i used eastern blooms and short and sweet stamps and used flower fusion (which are old olive but extremely similar to kiwi kiss). I have got 2 more cards to post but will leave them till tomorrow!!!
Have a great night, thanks for visiting!!

Well it's been awhile since my last post so thought i had better get my act together today, decided to do this challenge as i had to make a card for a friends daughter turning 6 and thought these colours were ideal for this, so here it is, not really liking this card alot, have used time well spent stamp set (hostess 08-09) and have stamped best wishes out of short and sweet in pretty in pink ink but it hasn't photographed well!!! And i have used the new flower brads - they are sooo cool!!! Well that about sums it up, might get some more creating time over the weekend - thanks for visiting and have a good weekend.

I finally managed to do the colour throwdown this morning, i have really lost my mojo this week - it is taking me ages to get inspiration for these challenges!!!! ho humm!!!!
My green of choice was old olive, and i used for a friend stamp set and some flower fusions!!!
Maybe while i am creating i may give mojo monday a go - gosh its saturday and i am going to do mojo monday - bit behind this week. Anyway enjoy your weekend!!! thanks for visiting.

Hi there, well this card has certainly challenged me!!!! I like the choice of colours (or no colours) but i only have the black ink pad so was slightly limited, this was my 3rd attempt at this card, wanted to go for an elegant look but wasn't working so went with this!!!!
Have used Garden Whimsey stamp set, and scallop edge punch, i am really liking that punch at the moment!!! Right - now i will have some lunch and find some inspiration for the next challenge!!
Thanks for visiting!

Hi, its been a few days since my last post so thought i had better get to it!!
Not sure about this card, sitting on the fence about this one but however this is what i came up with. I used polka dot punches stamp set, using sky blue on the 2nd heart but it hasn't photographed very well, and i found some random heart brads to go with it!!!
Well had better go and cook some tea for the family!!!!
Until next time.......

Colour Throwdown

Well here is another card that i am not 100% happy with, first time i have used Barely Banana and regal rose, and i only have pretty in pink stamp pad, so i was limited but gave it a go, i am actually going to use this card for my friend's daughter who is turning 3 on saturday as it is a girly girl card. I have used Garden Whimsey stamp set and For a friend stamp set that you can't actually see very well i did it in versamark, i also used some jewellery wire to make the butterfly attenna's just for effect. All in all i have had a productive afternoon even though i'm not completely happy with 2 of them, however its another day tomorrow!!!! I think we are in for a WET long weekend, oh how sad - just an excuse to escape to my craft room and stamp!!!!
Until next time- c u later!!!!
Thanks for visiting.

Mojo Monday #76

I am not really liking this card, i wanted to use colours that i don't normally go for, and this is what i came up with. I used Taken with Teal, ruby red and whisper white cardstock, bali breeze DSP and polka dot punches stamp set and short and sweet stamp set. Looking at this card now i am sure there is something missing about it but its done and dusted now, on to the next one!!!!

kwerner Challenge #44

Hello, my afternoon was spent in my craftroom catching up on all the challenges for this week, after looking at this one i knew exactly what stamp set i was going to use- i LOVE these colours together, i am sooo disappointed that 'Like it a Latte" stamp set is retiring - i have only just got it, so i could not pass up this opportunity to use it. I have used versamark with the Baroque wheel on the close to cocoa and pretty in pink card, and i made use of my new scallop edge punch too!!! with a little bit of puff paint for effect!!! Hope you like it!!!! Right now i need to oublish the next 2 challenges that i have done.

Wedding Anniversary

I seem to be on a roll making cards at the moment!!! This card is for my brother and his lovely wifes first wedding anniversary today, i can't believe its been a year already, and more exciting is that they have a little bundle of joy on the way (their first) - hence the cutie teddy bear that i brought for my soon to be neice or nephew, it is the cutest bear i have seen, i can tell i am going to be such a sucker of an aunty when bubs is born especially if its a girl as i have boys and i only have nephews too!!!!! But as long as bubs is healthy and happy it doesn't matter if its a boy or girl. I have used very vanilla, choc chip and old olive cardstock with matching DSP and have used the cherish out of baroque motifs and the flower out of eastern blooms stamp set and of course flower fusions.
Well i had better fly and put boys to bed and feed hubby, thanks for visiting and have a happy monday.
