Love & Marriage … made this card just to add to my stash.
Stamps are Papertrey Ink, cardstock, ribbon & ink as always is SU. 
Off to create a card for our nephew Kyle and his fiancé Faye for a group gift so I think I might have to use this set again but make something like the Meander Book (tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers) for everyone to sign. The challenge is on!

Working on next year’s Christmas cards …

I ordered some wonderful new Papertrey Ink products a while back but haven’t had much of a chance to play with them until now. In today’s card I’ve used Rustic Wreath in a very clean and simple design. After stamping in black I coloured the wreath with a white gel pen and then added some red dots using a clear red gel pen. Nothing too hard, just a little time consuming colouring the wreath. I think it would look great as a square card but if posting within Australia then the post office likes to charge extra for square cards, so I’ve kept it as a rectangle.

Christmas Card #2

Posted on

It’s incredibly hot outside again today for the 3rd day in a row the temperature has soared over 40°c – currently it’s about 44.7°c outside … no wonder the poor air conditioner is struggling!
So today I share the 2nd of the Snowflake themed Christmas cards I made, again using SU’s Snowflake Soiree … did I mention that I LOVE this set!! Clean and simple in design although not so when you are trying to replicate for an order  – had to replace the bad photo I had here as the more I looked at it the worse it was, but still can’t for some reason, get a good photo of this card!! :)P1200771

Christmas Card #1

Posted on

For me this year it was all about snowflakes! I really love snowflakes, they are so delicate and beautiful so created 3 cards around snowflakes. I had a corporate order and used 2 designs of the 3 to make up my order and luckily for all our family and friends I had enough left overs from the order that everyone (except 1 person) will get a hand made card this year, unlike last year where no one received a hand made card.

A Chocolate Affair #1

Posted on

About a month ago I said I was going to share some cards I’d made with a stamp set gifted to me by my fabulous friend Courtney – you can check out Courtney’s blog HERE. Courtney is one of Australia’s first CTMH (Close to my Heart) demonstrators and during the month of August their stamp of the month was the awesome “A Chocolate Affair” set comprising of 16 stamps. Anyway today I share my first card made with CTMH stamps and SU papers & ribbon.

Two posts in one week!

Posted on

I’m on a roll … 2 posts in one week. Now the challenge in on myself to keep it up.
As mentioned in my post the other day, Brian and I recently celebrated a milestone anniversary so we had a bonfire and BBQ here at home. Awesome night, fantastic company … will be remembered for a very long time. Despite asking for no gifts (being as our plan is to sell everything and travel Australia) my family gave us money, which went towards some new Baccarat Saucepans, including a steamer, pasta cooker and sauté pan with egg poacher insert … much loved and very much enjoying the new cookware! Brian’s family all pooled together for our anniversary and Brian’s birthday and bought us a HOT AIR BALLOON RIDE!!! I am thinking August next year would be perfect as the canola (rapeseed) will be in flower then but it’s a 2 person decision, so only time will tell.
Anyway, here is my cards for today. The first is the invitation for our party, to which I added a couple of sentiments and suggested to people that they up-cycle the invitation into a card.

 This second card is the Thank You cards that I sent out to those who joined us on the night and give us “non” gifts and helped out in the kitchen, on the day or by supplying some extra firewood!
