I'm back!!

Hello friends! I'm back after a long sorry but I'm having trouble with blogger, and apparently it's them not me. How are you all??! I am well and plodding along one day at a time. Winter has just left us here in Australia, and Spring has begun! I hope it stays awhile..summer is not fun lol  but, we continue and I'm thankful for each day. So, onto my card! I got a new die set from Kaisercraft recently, when they started selling online. Everything half price so a good buy!! It's called Flloral Cluster and has 9 dies. I also used one of their embossing folders as well but it's no longer available. I stamped a few times in the background with a stamp from SU Gorgeous Grunge set, and added a few tiny bling. I love how it turned out! I hope you get to see my post and there are no problems. Thanks so much if you have stayed around , and thank you for your comments. I appreciate each one. Many blessings hope to be in again very soon xxx p.s I'm challenging myself to do a card a day! 😃☺️🤗😉

Happy 50th Rhoda !

Hi friends! This card was made for a dear friend for her 50th.. She loves Purple , so was easy to make a beautiful card using the papers and butterflies from Lemoncrafts Violet Silence . The butterflies are on a sheet and you have to fussy cut them, but I enjoy fussy cutting!  I think it turned out lovely, and I know she was happy with it. The 50 was die cut using MFT big numbers. Hope you are well and finding time to craft. Thanks for popping by and many blessings xx

Shadow Box Mothers Day Card!

Hi friends! How are you all? It's March and finally over the last 2 days has cooled down!! Hopefully summer has gone and we can enjoy Autumm 😀 Now on to my card! I watched a you tube of this fancy card tutorial, and had to try one as it looked pretty easy, and was. So I used some Graphic 45 "A Ladies Diary" paper and flowers from my stash, and love how it turned out!!!  I think my mum will love it too. Mother's Day here is on the second Sunday in May, so a few weeks away yet, but I'm now ready with my card! Thank you for popping by and many blessings xx

Happy birthday Billy! ( goodbye summer!!!)

Hi friends! Sorry it's been awhile between posts, I have been making cards, mainly for my card sets for church, but also it's been horribly humid here, and without air con my craft room is a no go area! We do have air con in our bedroom, but only use it when the humidity is high at night. Electricity is very expensive here in Australia, so we have to be careful. Thank goodness today is the last day of summer woohoo!! So looking forward to cooler days! The next 9 months will be a relief! We don't have extreme cold in our winters so it's nice to to rug up and wear jumpers for a change. Average temperature here in southern Queensland in Winter is 6-20 Celsius. Which is around 42-68 f. Ok, so onto my card! The 26th was my hubbys birthday! He lovesthe beach, so I made this card for him using a collection from Kaisercraft called Sandy toes. I used a sketch  I think it was from MFT, and loved  how it turned out. He loved it too! The background paper was glossy ( from the 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 pad) but I did put glossy accents on the thongs ( you call them flip flops lol )  I do hope you are well my friends, and excited to be going into Spring I can imagine! Thank you so much for popping by, many blessings xx

A tribute to Jacqui McNeill.

Hi friends! It's been 5 years since Jacqui McNeill owner and designer of The Digi Garden passed away, so I wanted to pay tribute to her by making a few cards with her ever so cute digis.i had so much fun making the first one I had to keep going!! I do basic colouring and I'm happy with that, and just used papers from my stash. I really love the last card with the cake, but didn't think that it was a lot of candles fior a little girl lol, but hey, I'd send these to any of my friends not just little girls. Thanks for stopping by and many blessing xxx
