Happy Birthday Zest Blog

Lime Tart are celebrating the birthday of their Zest Blog & are having a challenge to make them a birthday card.
Here is the card I've made, it's also based on their May sketch.

I've used Pink Paislee papers.
Happy Birthday to all the creative girls at Lime Tart.
You can check them out here:

We are having a cyber crop tonight over at Scrap Pile. Everyone is welcome to come & join in the fun. We'll have lots of great challenges & there will also be 3 games of bingo. Would love to see you there.

Sketch This #50

Sketch This are celebrating their 50th sketch so I thought I'd join in & have some fun with the sketch too. I still have my Pink Paislee obsession but have moved on to their other range "Office Lingo" which is just as beautiful as "Spring Fling".

This is my take on Sketch #50.

All the paper is Pink Paislee & the stamp is Melissa Frances.
Congratulations to Sketch This & thank you for all the inspiration.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all you hard working fabulous Mums. I hope you all have a wonderful day. I was spoilt with some lovely flowers, hand made gifts & toast.....that wasn't burnt, LOL.

I'm still loving playing with my Pink Paislee papers & made this card from Sketch #63 from . It's the first time I've done a sketch & really enjoyed it.

WOW...3 Posts In 3 Days!!!!

Here are the rest of the cards from my May DT kit.
These ones all use October Afternoon "County Fair" papers. I like the combination of colours in these papers.

This one features an Inque Boutique stamp.

This is a little purse card, something a bit different.

The MME journal card slides out of this one.

I love these chip butterflies from Maya Road.

Now I need to get cracking on making a special birthday card for my little one who will be turning 6 in a few weeks.

National Scrapbooking Day Fun

We had lots of fun over at Scrap Pile celebrating National Scrapbooking Day.
I actually called my very first game of bingo, LOL.
After bingo I put up a quick little card challenge. It had a 2 hour time limit & needed to include a stamp, some chipboard & dots of some kind.
Thanks for playing along Jaki & Mel, I loved your cards.
This is my card...

Mel paired us up for a partner challenge & Jaki & I were put together for a card challenge.
We had to choose 3 things each to challenge our partner to use.
I chose 2 PP, a flower & ribbon for Jaki & she made the most gorgeous card.
Jaki challenged me to use scallops, a bird & the colour green.
Gosh I had a lot of fun with it & this is the result. I just LOVE this Pink Paislee paper range.

Where Does The Time Go?

Gee I've been a bit slack with updating my blog but I have been really busy otherwise.
My DT kit arrived at the end of last month & I got stuck straight into it & managed to create 8 cards from all the goodies Mel sent me.
I couldn't share them for awhile as they were for May so I needed to wait a bit.
Here are 4 from the first kit. I'll upload the others next time.
This kit included papers from Paper Loft's "Well Worn" range & some cute chipboard.
I love the little bugs on this one, I think they're snails, LOL.

I made this one from a Heidi Swapp file folder & it's for my cool nephew who is turning 18.

I had a good laugh when I was looking through my kit when it arrived. I pulled out the bottom part of the house & stared at it & scratched my head, thinking what on earth is this???.....then I found the roof, LOL.

This last card did take awhile. My trusty scissors got a bit of a work out but the result was worth it. I picked up the Wild Asparagus frame while I was in Melbourne & just love it...wish I'd bought more now.

That's it for now. Hope to be back tomorrow.
