CARDABILITIES sketch # 60

Hello and welcome back for another reveal of our pretty awesome sketch #60
I hope you have had a fabulous weekend...so far.

Love love love this sketch... I cannot wait to see what people create with this!


I had a clean up of my craft room and found my Heartfelt Creation stamps and I loved the script and thought it would be perfect for my card.  I decided I wanted stars instead of the hearts. You can use WHATEVER you want, just follow the basic sketch.
Pop on over to Cardabilities and see the gorgeous samples out Design Team have created and I hope you join in, I would love to come and visit to see what you have created.


Again, we are generously sponsored by Flying Unicorn, thank you xx

Yes It's A Go!

After MONTHS and MONTHS of research, reading, going to travel fairs, talking to people, surfing the net......Christie and Tom have FINALLY booked their dream holiday to America!! I am so excited for them......but SO UNBELIEVABLY nervous for them. I want them to go and experience the absolute wonder and excitement  that travel can bring.......but I want them to be safe and hurry home....
They have really done their homework and saved lots and now all they have to do is finalise some accommodation and some sporting events they would like to attend and then the countdown begins......mind you Christie has been counting down since January 2012 lol




















Hop along to Scrapbook Boutique, they have instructions on how to recreate this LO.
thanks for popping in.

CARDABILITIES sketch # 59


Hello and welcome to our first reveal as the new DT of Cardabilities 
I just love this sketch and I had endless possibilities running through my head when I first saw it! I am such a fan of the sketch.....great starting point if your MOJO needs a poke....

anyway...I decided to turn the sketch clockwise.  I am having a play with my Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Perfect Pearl Mist and acrylic block.  You can create any colour combination you like and no two will ever be the same....
Flying Unicorn are very generously sponsoring our challenge this month.  I have just had a peek at their store....Yummy Goodness!!!
Head on over to Cardabilities to see the very talented DT samples and I really hope you join in!
I can wait to visit to see your interpretation of the sketch.
thanks for popping in :)

Lazy Lazy Summer

Happy Spring to all you Southern Hemispheres! The weather in Melbourne at the moment is glorious!!! I think Spring would be my most favourite time of year....not too hot and not too cold just right. Bring on summer though....holidays yay!

A very bright and cheerful card today and a centre step card to boot..(one of my new favs...) I found the instructions here and Instructions on how to re-create the card are at Scrapbook Boutique, along with all the products I used especially the delicious Carta Bella 12 x12 pack (heaven!!!)
