Combined Challenge

Well guess what, I made pretty good progress on that to-do list, so I have had some time to play this afternoon. I have finished off this month's card's for class, done a scrapbook page and played along with this colour challenge from Twilight Tuesday and a sketch challenge from a Yahoo Group Stampin Up In Oz which I am a member of. The colours I have used are Real Red, Baja Breeze and Sahara Sand. I have used the Party Hearty stamp set again because it was still out on my table from the other day. I also got to use up some of my scraps that were lying in a pile to be put away which also was a bonus. Hope you are having a great Sunday afternoon, I am off now to get tea and kids organised so I can watch the Men's Australian Open Final tonite at 7.30pm. Wow we have been so priviliged to see some awesome tennis this year!!!!!

Razzle Dazzled

Here is a card I made at one of my previous classes. I have used the Razzle Dazzle Stamp set and coloured with my markers. The colours are Chocolate Chip, Really Rust & Close to Cocoa. I used this card to demonstrate the use of the circle scissors. Sorry about the photo, it really looks heaps better IRL. I just don't have time to retake a photo this morning. My to do list is jam packed today. I have Miss 3 starting Preschool tomorrow and Mr5 started Kindergarten on Friday. So tomorrow will be an interesting day for me........ Anyway back to that to do list.......Hope you liked the card......Once my to do list is finished, I am hoping to have time to play along with some challenges......if so I will be back here to post......

Boys Birthday card

I am back with another Twilight Tuesday challenge this week it was a Sketch Challenge, as I have mentioned before I am behind on some of my cards so I needed a boy's birthday card for this one. I used the Urban Oasis DS Paper with Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss & Baja Breeze. A button, a brad and some star punches and lookie here what do you get, A Boy's birthday card. I have been trying to get organised for Feb's classes as well today, so I carn't show you those to next month but just got round to photographing last months so hopefully this week I will be able to show you those. Sorry for the lack of post's last week but my husband and I took of to Melbourne for 4 days to watch the Australian Open tennis. Now it is back to the real world!!!!!

Birthday Card

I made this card for the Twilight Tuesday colour challenge and also incorporated their previous sketch challenge as well. This colour challenge was all to do with Edward, the colour of his eyes, skin & hair. I needed another colour as well so I went with black being another colour of his eyes. If you have no idea what I am talking about, you need to read the book!!!!! I am behind on a few birthday cards and so this will be one of them. I was really happy with the finished product. So the colours are Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Basic Black & Confetti Cream. Hope you like it.......

Extreme Sports

I needed a birthday card yesterday for a special little man and I found this card on Jayne Mercer's blog which was originally inspired by Michelle Zindoff. I havn't had my brayer out in probably over 12 months so I dusted it off and pulled it out. This is something that I want to play more with this year because I love the look that you can achieve and also because it is so individual each time you do it, you can get a bit different effect. Well I do anyway, lol...., maybe it's just me.....Now I do have to apologise for the photo because it has gone all grainey and the yellow hasn't shown up at all. I tried to photoshop it to make it look better but all to no avail.... I would photograph it again but I have already given it away..... Will be back with some of my projects we made last nite at class.

Hi there everyone, It's been a while since I have managed to get back here. We have been away between Xmas & New Year, so Happy New Year to you all, I hope you had a fantastic time wherever you may be. Now those of you who know me well, know that I am a huge fan of the twilight saga. So when this weeks sketch challenge popped up on the twilight tuesday site I thought I would have a little play along. I wanted to play with some of my new stamps out of the summer mini being the butterfly prints and the butterfly punch. I also wanted to create some blank type cards that I can stamp a sentiment on it later when I need it because I am running low on my stash. So this card will fit for many different uses. Now the colours are Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirrouette, Baja Breeze, Whisper White and some Silver Metallic paper to match with the silver wire antanea. I just loved there sketch it was so easy to work with. I have some birthday card's to catch up on and I think it would also work really well for those as well.
