A new Fabulous Friday Challenge

Frosted Designs have got a new challenge today "Stripes & Polka Dots"  I have put my own little twist on the stripes.  I didn't really want to introduce some stripey paper so I rolled a ballpoint pen in a versamark ink pad and created some stripes.
This is a picture of my only daughter and myself, last year.  It is nice having a girl in a house with lots of boys! and besides being mother and daughter we are friends too!

Case #36

I've just got back from a wonderfully, restful time at the beach.  Recharge the batteries and raring to go for Term 2!  Another challenge from Case Study and their muse Silke Ledlow gorgeous card is very inspiring!

TFL :)



I really love Case's Muse this month! Silke Ledlow is a pretty awesome cardmaker!  all her cards are really clean and polished looking!!!
how gorgeous is the colouring! Just beautiful!  I pretty much cased the colours and design, and it came together quickly.

I borrowed the Stampin Up Just believe set (love love love) from Nai and I churned out quite a few cards...........
later for them though! lol


Nothing beats hand made!

Frosted Designs have an awesome challenge this week! handmade embellishments~!! I got all my punches and scissors, sewing machine and PP and I was in heaven!

I just love this photo of Patrick. He was lying on the grass outside and I started snapping away and before he had a chance to complain..........all the stars aligned and I took the clearest, best photo I've ever taken!  I just love how the sun is shining on his head and the  freckles and the look!
Love this photo!
Go and see what the DT have created!


Case #33

I just love this week's card at Case Study their muse this week is Julee Tilman. This card is simply stunning! I loved the greens ( my fav colour!) and the DT had some beautiful inspiration too!
Isn't it just beautiful and I think I have found a new card blog to stalk!!

I decided to get my Mother's Day card organised! I need to post it early so it gets there on time.

I have used my Martha Stewart scor-pal (going to have fun with that) and as promised, I am working my way through my stamps.  I have used the PTI Larger than Life set with the die as well.  OMG I love this set!!!! along with my Stampin' Up DP and some bling, I am really happy how it came together and all ready and waiting to be posted!

Frosted Designs BLING challenge

Who doesn't love a bit of bling?......

at Frosted Designs it is
 our challenge is to use BLING on a card, layout or project!! And what could be better for doing that than the i-rock tool!! This compact tool heat sets gems to your project in a matter of seconds! It can be used on paper as well as fabric and many other surfaces! And they are giving you a chance to win one this week!! That's right! Just for playing along, you could win an i-rock Starter kit along with an extra package of crystals!

All you have to do is make a project that has some bling on it to qualify! Note: you do NOT have to use the i-rock to enter. Any bling will do... gems, sequins, glitter glue, anything pretty and shiny!!  :)

Also a BIG welcome to our Guest Designer Valerie

a LOT more sparkly IRL!!!
as you know I have just celebrated 22 years of holy matrimony! (28 together!) less for murder.......I'd be out by now! lol
