Happy birthday Debra

Morning All,
well its another rainy day here in Perth! and wouldn't you guess - Its Debra James's birthday! Yep she's only 35 would you believe it.. ha ha ha
so below is the card I whipped up for her!

Any who - I was back at copic class today.. whoohoooo dontcha hate having a break from something that you really love! although I must admit we all were really hesitant at this weeks lesson - colouring sheer (see thru).. OMG we had some fun! Although I do recall some one saying 'Oh I can't colour this - I don't have the right colours' ha ha... I am sure she is practicing at home as I type!

Moving on - I thought I would enter this card into a couple of challenges!
By the Cute and Girly - Anything Goes
Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar Challenge - PINK for Breast Cancer awareness

Have a lovely weekend.

Yesterday was a blast!

Yesterday I flew back from Melbourne to Perth. It was an awesome day thanks to my taxi driver (Thanks Sarah). I managed to get to the P2P craft fair in Melbourne. I had the most extreme pleasure of meeting Zoe from Make It Crafty - She is a fab lady!

I also got to watch her colour!!

I also had the pleasure of meeting Bron from ShopBron. Oh and I spent a lovely afternoon wandering around looking at inks, paper, punches and other crafty stuff! Shhh dont tell hubby - but I could have brought a few extra little items back home with me.. ha ha ha.

How good is that!
Well am back in Perth - but a bit weary today.

Have a great night

Happy birthday SIL

I have created a card for my SIL's 40th birthday, with limited crafty items.. Again with the help of my daughter who selected the papers for me (as I am currently staying with my parents in the middle of country victoria with no scrapbooking store in sight).

I coloured Mo's digitial pencil - 'Sugar plum fairy' with my copics, added some stickles and pearls. Distressed the edges - inked with versamark bark. Apologies for the picture, but i don't have a camera cable so it was taken with my phone camera. The background looks a bit dark, but was coloured with V000 - I think its the way the light has hit the card (sigh)..

Ohhh - nearly forgot - I am going to enter this card into Bizzy Becs October Challenge - girls and pearls.

Let me know what you think.
Have a great weekend.
ps.. back to civilisation tomorrow.. back to my craft room.. wooohoooo :)

Happy birthday Bro

As most some of you are aware I am on long service leave and visiting family in the East.
Yesterday was my baby brothers birthday (ha ha 41!).. So as you know when you travel you can't take your whole craft room with you (sigh) so with my meagre supplies and with some assistance from my beautiful daughter (the favourite one!) i created the card below for my bro.. Oh I did forget to tell you that I don't have the cable to use the camera - so the pic was taken with my mobile phone and downloaded....
As you can also see we haven't had a copic class for a while, but don't dispair! we will return (smile).

The papers are Kaiser and the image is a Bizzy Bec one, coloured with Copics and not too much bling!
