The Land of Blog

I am not particularily good at keeping my blog up to date but that is life I suppose.  Even though I havent been sharing here I have been stamping lots!  My eldest daughters kindy is having an art auction and I decided that Cards are art and have been furiously creating as I set myself a target of 100 cards and i have just 4 to create from scratch to get finished, although i have a few 'in progress' on my table.
So i thought i would share a photo of a set of 5 I have made

I am glad that we get to keep tangerine tango when the colour renovation is rolled out as I love it and I love that it goes with Rich Razzleberry which we are also keeping!!!
Stamp sets used are:Vintage Vogue, Cottage Garden and All A Flutter

Thanks for visiting, have a great day!

Card One-Dazzling Pony

On Saturday night I have got a workshop and have just finished prepping my samples and cardstock, I'm not particularily motivated as I have a sore throat and am also trying to make about 100 cards for the local kindy to auction at their art auction on the 11th of June.

Attendees have the choice of real red or razzleberry.   I have used Pony Party which I got in clear mount.

Just lately I have been very slack with blogging and participating in the online classes and challenges at the lovely Swap Sisters, however this week when Sue posted the Sketch Challenge I knew I wanted to make a page and it had to be grey and so saffron, only problem was that the 12x12 grey was in transit, now that it has arrived i am finally home and had an hour to very loosely follow the sketch and here is my version

Now that i have started again I hope that my mojo will continue however life has the habit of eating into my creative time!

I MADE A CARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WAHOO I made a card!!!!!!!!!!!!  Very exciting as I seemed to have lost my MOJO I think it ran away somewhere and hitch hiked a ride back with the box of SU loveliness that arrived at mine this arvo!!

On the lovely SS Melissa set a challenge a week or two back to use Dazzling Diamonds and Heat and Stick Powder.  I didnt own either so when i placed my order last week I made sure to include them so i could try the technique.

Below is the card I made, Im not really happy with it but any card is better than no card and it also gave me the opportunity to get my new Clear Mount stamps out and inky!

Thanks for looking

A different kind of baby card

Yesterday morning my first nephew was born at 0158 and i got to witness the joy of birth! My lil sis and her hubby had a wee boy they named Slade.

Then yesterday afternoon I had a card class which is really interesting to run after 3 hours sleep!! I had joy fold cards and springfold cards for them to make.

Both cards were using the fox and friends set and the joyfold was in kraft and chocolate chip.  i made my card to welcome Slade and will give it to my sis when we visit them this afternoon for my first proper cuddle, then i need more sleep and to get cracking on some cards for the kindy art auction and also design some more card class cards.  Gosh my brain hurts thinking about it.
i apologise for the photo being sideways but thats how blogger uploaded it, it is the right way round on my desktop.

Thanks for visiting, have a great day!
