Hi again girls...I know 2 challenges in one week, I must be back on track. Thanks to the girls over at Just add Ink for a fun and open challenge this week. Pop on over and have a look at the amazing creations the girls have made this week.
Below is my card I made for our gorgeous 3 year old neighbour Samuel. Don't you just love that cute little grin. It's a little late, but I know he will forgive me!!!
I just love using Party This Way with the Celebrations DSP, just can't go past the way it all matches. I have made lots of birthday cards using these combos and each time they look fabbo and bright. The Celebrations stripe also looks good used for a Christmas Card.

Hi again everbody!!! Hope your day has been a good one, with the summery day it is today, mine has been fantastic. On Saturday the next group of girls did a slightly different spin on the week before. We had a great afternoon with lots of talking and laughing, the girls did get all their cards done in amongst all this!!!
I won't name all the ingredients in the cards but I will just give a quick run down. If you need to know anything just drop me a line and I will let you know.
Card 1 using Jolly Holiday DSP & Dasher was a personal fave along with the cute Top Note little calenders. These are a great little idea as that something extra for a Christmas gift.
Card 2 was done as is then the girls did the reverse with Old Olive.
Card 3 with the Snow Swirled tree was done in everbody's fave colour. Yet again I forgot to take photo's. Mine was orange of course, but we had purple, pink, greens, and blue. They all looked really gorgeous together and would make a great little set, just a nice quick easy one.
The 4th lot of cards was not part of the day but I just popped them in as I was playing, trying out different and quick cards. I like how they turned out I hope you do too.
Everything has been spritzed with Champagne Shimmer of course, it is not clear in the photo's. I went nuts again with this gorgeous product.

Thanks for popping in and it always makes my day when you leave a comment.

I will be back in the next day or two with a challenge from over at Keesh's blog.

Have a great day

I LIED!!! Yes 3 posts in one day. This one is my first blog award from a lovely lady Patrice this is her gorgeous blog. Pop in sometime and take a look at her beautiful creations.
I am a little challenged in linking name with blog, will have to figure that one out
Thankyou Patrice it was a lovely surprise when I came back from holidays.

So three things about myself that you may not know

1. My absolute favourite food I could live on each day is seafood

2. Besides crafting I love curling up with a great book

3. I'll throw in a wacky one , all my labels in my pantry must be facing forward!!! I know...weird.

Have a great day and thanks Patrice.


Yes I'm back with the second post of the day, I can't believe it myself. As you know bright is me, but I just love this stamp set and the gorgeous DSP to go with it. Not usually my colours but they just go so well so stay tuned for more to come with this gorgeous set.
I made this card just because I could, but I have just the perfect person to give it to now. I love it when that happens...just meant to be.
The spritzing of Champagne Mist is more sparkly in the first photo than IRL. I do get a little outa control with the Champagne Mist at times, a girl just loves sparklies.
Thanks for popping in for a look and I hope you my card.

Forgive me fellow bloggers for I have sinned!!!LOL Wow, how long ago was my last post. Anyhoo back with 2 posts in one day and I just might take up a challenge or 2 this week. I must say, lucky there is only a few people who read my blog so there are not too many that would notice how long it's been.
Yesterday I had the girls over for the first Christmas Stamp a Stack. It challenged a couple at times, but being the troopers they are, they finished and were very proud of their efforts. Below are the cards we made, the girls like to do totally different ones so we don't follow a stamp theme. The Merry Christmas card is a case from the catalogue. I am just loving Dasher he is one of my many faves at the moment. You may be able to pick up on most of the cards that I have spritzed with Champagne Mist. I just mixed with some Isocol and het presto magic glitter for your cards and pages. I won't name all the products used but if you would like to know any ingredients please let me know.
I liked the way they turned out and I hope you do too!!!

Have a great day and I love reading your makes my day
