Muse #106

WOW! It has been so long since I've been able to just have a play!  I had an idea in my head and it almost came out as I'd imagined it!  I am off to a wedding on Saturday and I wanted to make my card a little non traditional and also use colours associated with the theme of the day.  I wanted a more gradual variegated look but I am overall happy with the result.  I thought I play along with Muse #106 as I really love Shona Chambers soft and subtle inspiration card.

thanks for popping by :)


Happy Belated Birthday!!

I am pretty good at remembering birthdays, so I don't really need this type of card too often......  I did make this card, knowing the recipient would get it three weeks later!
Using a bit of washi for the flowers as all the PP I tried just didn't pop like it wanted it to!  It is pretty easy just cover some cardstock with your washi tape and die cut your shape.  Gives it a funky look too.  I'm going to do another and use a few different tapes.

Here is MY take on the challenge:-

My youngest, Patrick is starting year 12 this year ( his final year of high school)  He is super organised and has made a plan ( hopefully he will stick to it!)  I am liking his new approach to school!!  I am SO LOOKING forward to:  * not paying any more school fees,
                                              * not making lunches,
                                                      * not driving him to school
                                                         * not reading English novels
                                                            *not Proof reading/critiquing 
                                          * not writing notes
                                                                             *not attending Parent teacher interviews

After 19 years of having primary and secondary school children, I am sad (NOT) that it will all soon be over!!
I made this card to let Patrick know he is so capable and we are proud of him no matter what!

Hi there! It's all a go here with the kiddies starting back tomorrow! I am NO WHERE near ready but things always seem to fall into place!! Thank Goodness, I was organised, because I haven't really had any time to play in my craft room (despite a 6 weeks holiday......) ANYWAY...
Honeycomb is trending at the moment, I've seen lots of inspiration on Pinterest especially with mixed media and I love it.  I have just got some new stencils, so stay tuned!!!
