Happy father's day!!

I just thought I would share a card that I made - whilst having a go at colouring in - using a blender pen and some inks...

I hope you like it!

As you can see I have used basic grey card with kiwi kiss, urban garden backed with not quite navy, stamped on whisper white. .
Stamp sets - Short order alphabet and Loads of Love.
Ink pads - black, basic grey, kiwi kiss, baja breeze and riding hood red.
Chalk - not quite navy.
Brads - vintage (antique brass)..
And the last ingredient - lots of love for my dad.

Have a great night

My first workshop/class

My thanks to my friend Annette, Sandra, Jenny and her friend.. (and to Neil who went shopping and left us girls to it!)

We had a great time and apologies for the blinding flash/glare in the mirror...

It was a hoot and I will be wanting to do this again soon..

As you can see we made quite a mess, but geez did we have some laughs.. especially when the demonstrator got her own card a bit out of whack!! But then isnt that just having a creative moment.. ha ha..

Ok, I'm off... have a great night

Some new cards

I have had some time to be creative and have put together these..

I hope you like them.

Take care

My beautiful Girls

I thought I would share a mum's moment with you all and show you how beautiful my girls are! This was at their birthday dinner and I love them heaps.
They are both clever, intelligent, beautiful, smart, wonderful, caring, women and I am so proud of them both.

Aren't I the lucky mum...

Its all over

Well, the birthday (s) are over... I feel exhausted!
We had a lovely night at the Burswood - with dinner at the Atrium restaurant... Did someone mention that PINK was playing at the dome.. OMG!! there were people everywhere!

So anyways - I am back at work (sigh sigh).. and I have a workshop booked for sunday..

I thought I would show you what I made my daughters instead of the usual stock standard key!

I hope you enjoy them!

Most of the gear I used is available through Stampin Up, except for the paint and the chipboard pieces.. I had a lot of fun making these, as the girls chose their paper and then all I had to do was match the paint and ribbon. Between their name and messages I placed some card which everyone at their dinner signed and wrote lovely messages.

Have a great night.. I will post after this weeks workshop and you can have a look at what we made.

Bye for now.

Spring Mini Catalogue is HERE!!!!

Click here to view it online. Just email me at if something takes your fancy - there are a couple of small single stamps that would be great for someone starting out.

I haven't been able to have a play as yet, as I have been working on my daughters (yep I have two) 21st birthday which is on tuesday, with most of the family arriving from the eastern states... we are on a count down - 7 sleeps to go.

I will upload the project i am working on for their birthday as soon as i have finished...
Well we are all off to the Wine and Food festival.. Might even be able to have a gander at George and Gary cooking...

Have a great day.
