Happy Birthday today to our nephew David  Hope your day is extra special 


Dave is both a player and a keen watcher of baseball so I thought this Le Suh 3D image suited him really well.  I have made an easel card and added a fence and a Spellbinders tag.

Last week my precious husband Ron passed away after a very long illness. He was farewelled by 100 + family and friends on Friday . Ron passion was the Fire Service and he spent 30 years as a firefighter and another 5 years as a senior fire education instructor with the seniors in our community, then 12 years as an examination assessor with junior fire fighters at the Academy.   He will be always loved, always missed and never forgotten.














Julie Nutting Paper Dolls Card

Image
Today I would like to share a card I made from the Julie Nutting Paper Dolls paper kit . It is a wonderful kit which includes 12x12 paper, stickers and tags and you really don't need a whole lot of other items to make some really sweet items. I just added a couple of  Spellbinders die cuts and a couple of rhinestone to complete this card 

Calendar

Image
My brother recently had his 70th birthday so I made him a calendar using the Couture Creations Australiana range of dies.  I cut a windmill, water tank, fence and the Holden ute which I rusted up with some ink and added a patterned paper background behind the calendar.

Julie Nutting Doll House

So yes, I guess I am still a child at heart. I love the Julie Nutting doll stamps and now I was given this beautiful Paper Dolls paper pack for Christmas. I have had the little case for some time trying to decide what to do with it so I thought the paper teamed up so well with it. I hope you enjoy my little trip back to childhood :)

Craft Mad Monthly Swap

Image
The theme for our monthly card swap at Craft Mad was to create your own background. This is my second card for my partner and I will admit to not being overly excited about it however at the moment I am pretty busy with a sick husband so crafting time is a bit short these days. Luckily I swapped with a very understanding partner  I used a Spellbinders die for my background and Spellbinders butterflies and flowers cut form glitter card. Finished with a Sticker store greeting.

I used a Spellbinders die for my background and inked it with several different colours and chose an image and flowers to match the inking.

Already the year is slipping by so quickly.  Already we are up to the March Craft Mad Monthly Card Sketch Challenge.  I have used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background of my sample card  and Bazzil patterned papers. The greeting is a cut from a die.
