Why no cards??

Well this is what I have been doing today.! I have been buying a crap load of recipe books and doing nothing with them.. so this morning I decided to try a couple out.
Anyone got a good card challenge site to do today? I need some inspiration!

One more card before I pack!

I have been wanting to do a stair step card with these two images from MelJens for a while now, and with having my mate Marie here doing cards (well trying!!!)... what better time to have a go.. this my end result. I will enter it in Meljens challenge - fibres, ribbon or lace.
This time I really am going!!! Bye bye

One for Marise!!!

I had to buy two images for Marise from Shirley's 2 Girls, and yes both images had poodles in them, and this card had to be PINK!!
Thought I would make this card before I hit the road again tomorrow morning .. yes travelling for work again (hopefully will be the last lime for a while). I have a few scheduled for you to see over the next few days. Anyway this card is for Allsorts Challenge - sketch. And also Papertake weekly - Ice Cream flavours - mine is Lime and strawberry flavour (my favourite) , and lastly - Shirley2 Girls - something old... well I have have these flowers for a while now and never used them !
Have fun this week.. see you all when I get back!

Bear Hug

Weather isn't looking to hot outside now.. (evil laugh) I can now leave pruning the roses and come in and play!!! I had happy mail today where my Oregan raindrops from Pink Hedgehog finally arrived... WOW, you should see the range of colours... so of course I had to use "Buttercup" colour on this card, plus as much as I love my "Water Babe" stamp from Wags n Whiskers I just had to go shopping and get another WnW digi called Bear Hug.. isn't she cute!!!
Anyhow.. onto the challenges...
Wags n Whiskers - Lemonade (use as little or as much yellow on your card)
Have a great weekend...(I am sure I will get around to making more cards to show you!!)

Anyway - onto this weeks challenge at Sassy Cheryls... we want you to create a homemade flower on your card. Its that easy! I have never been that successful at Lollipop flowers, so it was a great challenge for myself!

Now.. what are you waiting for.. start making your flowers, I cant wait to check them out! Oh and don't forget to head over to challenge blog to see what the other fantastic Sassy DT have created!

Water Babe

HI all, another dreary day here. I decided to take a break from my DT cards and enter a couple challenges at two of my favourite challenge blogs (apart from my DT challenge blogs that is!).
And here they are....
Wags and Whiskers - distressing. (where this Water Babe image is from)
Delightful Sketches - followed their fab sketch!

Hope you all are having a great weekend. Mine has been rather quiet, with my two stamping buddies Denise and Viv both got colds (they are both out of bounds!), and now my daughter is going through the tissues like you wouldn't believe!! Hopefully I'm not next!

Sneak Peak

A week or two ago my Aussie friend Zoe from Make it Crafty announced that she will be opening a digi online store for background images. I was honoured that she asked me to make a card for her. The background image I have used for this card is called "Hilly Lane" which will soon be available over at Zoe's Make it Crafty site. Isn't it wonderful.!! I also used "The Lovers Tree" from Sassy Cheryl.
I wish you all the luck for your new venture Zoe! If you want to see more sneak peaks, head over to Zoe's site and see the beautiful sunset background.

Aaaaa Tissssuueee

Get it??? Oh well, for those of you that are a bit confused by my sense of humour...
This fortnights challenge at Mad for Markers is to colour on something other than paper..EEKKK. Lucky for me my new Whiff of Joy "Unwell" stamps arrived... so yep, I inked one up and stamped on tissue paper. Next I layed coloured tissue on candle and wrapped wax paper around and scrunched at back so I could have a good hold on it while I heat gunned the front to get the tissue to melt into the candle! Its really that easy, and a nice pressie for someone who isn't feeling the best if its a scented candle.
