You Made my day :)

Hello there!  It is all happening here!  I am doing some renovating and of course everything gets shoved in my craft room, which is making it VERY difficult to get creative!!!  I did manage to get to my new Ranger Enamel Dots and YES YES YES these are fabulous!!  Once you have mastered the pressure, they are very easy to use.  A little tip, when using them for the first time, or after a break in using them, you need to do a practice squirt as they tend to splatter.  They make a lovely round 'dot' if you squirt with bottle facing completely upside down.  They are fabulous and come in a range of colours and really reasonably priced too.  Guess what?  I have nearly every colour :)  of course!!
Scrapbook Boutique have all these products and details on how I made this card, head on over and have a look.

Here is my take on the challenge.

I looked and looked and looked at the moodboard for ages...... I decided to take my inspiration from the 'fly' aspect.  This card is a little more watermelon than the pic and if I have time, I will photograph in a better light.  A  little vellum ♥ I do love going back and using things I haven't used in ages!!

anyway head on over to Ann's beautiful blog and I look forward to seeing your inspired contributions for this challenge ♥

Working hard for the money

It is school holidays here and my busy birthday month too!  I try to sneak a little crafty time in here and there, but there is never enough time really.....
Anyway I have a LO to share today using the Simple Stories woodgrain pack ♥♥♥ such an AWESOME pack of paper.  I am drawn to woodgrain, stars and stripes..... AND LOVE love LOVE those ink pads too, nice and sticky and hold their colour on any colour cardstock or paper.
My baby, during his last year of high school, needed to get a part time job as the parental money tree was drying up.... He found a job in a local Vietnamese restaurant that was opening up and quite enjoyed it, although soon realised you work long hours for not much pay.... welcome to the real world Patrick :)
Scrapbook Boutique have all the details and products used to make this LO.
