Just a quicky

the Sugar Bowl Challenge Blog.  I haven't entered this one for ages but I pulled out one of my all time favourites for a play this weekend.  I love this little hippy.

Just some more cards :)

I am really enjoying making cards at the moment. I've been selling them for the past month and have sold about 20 of them now. It gives me an excuse to make more...ohh, and buy more :) These two cards feature Whispy, a Saturated Canary image.  I've made quiet a few cards with her this past week and she's my current fave.  

This card is being entered in the Simon Says Anything Goes challenge and also a new one I've come across, Dream Valley Challenges and the current theme is sparkle.

and this one is for Saturated Canary Anything Goes challenge.

A few challenges for the weekend

First one is a combined one. Stampin for the weekend has a sketch up on their blog and I combined it with Simply Magnolia which you need to use lace and buttons...the buttons are there, they're hidden in the middle of the flowers.

This dude here is a Spesch stamp and I've done him for Mad for Markers, black and orange challenge.

....and here's Teddy Bo again, he's just too cute. Challenge is pastel.

Saturated Canary challenge is a 123, 1 image, 2 papers and 3 embellies. This is my first go with this little lady and I can see her becoming another favourite.

4 cards and a layout

This card is being submitted for the Crafty Ribbons challenge. I used a Teddy Bo digi image and the challenge is to use ribbon and lace.
This card is for the Teddy Bo challenge blog and this week is Clean and Simple. I've merge my image with another digi I got at All That Scraps. I have printed a few of these and am going to have to be extra careful with my colouring. I put my Teddy Bo image on top of the ATS one and started my editing on the right side of Teddy. It wasn't until I got half way up the left side that I realised I hadn't placed her in a very good spot. It's just lucky that I coloured all my flowers before I did Teddy or else one of those little petals would have been brown and looking a wee bit rude.....plus it's Teddy Bea not Teddy Bo :)

Now poor Nevaeh here was destined just not to work as planned in my head. It's my first play with her and nothing went right. I coloured her one night in the lounge room and realise i have done a pretty messy job. At the time I thought the yellow was really nice and now I can't stand it. I'm trying to get into the habit of picking the paper I'm using before I colour an image but it doesn't work that way all the time. My card is for the Saturated Canary challenge and its suposed to have stitching on it...and it does. I have actually stitched all the way round but didn't even think that I'd covered it up when I put the tulle on there.

I made this card for a Crop for breast cancer day that I went to yesterday that was organised by Katie Green and was an awesome day. This little chickie is one of, if not the, most favourite stamp of mine.

....and for the first time in a while, a layout. Again, done for yesterdays Think Pink day. This is Bron ready to leave for her deb last year. Isn't she gorgeous?

Thank you for looking.

Meet Poppy

So cute!!!! She's from Saturated Canary and I couldn't help myself (again) when I found these gorgeous images. I've used her for this weeks challenge which is a sketch.

Last weekend I did a class at Chandon Craft with Melissa Kennedy and made this gorgeous canvas. I'm really happy with how it turned out.

....we also did a couple of cards.

another new love

How gorgeous are these images? I know I say that everytime I find a new one but hese Teddy Bo images really are irresistable.

This first card is one hat I've cased from a Girls Night In, which was an afternoon class run by Tracy and Tracey from Scrapbooking Allsorts. I really loved the way the one in the class turned out and I will try and get a pic posted later in the week.

I'm entering this one in the Simon Says anything goes challenge.

This one has been made for the Teddy Bo challenge, which at the moment is Things With Wings.

....and a few others

Back in the saddle....and a sketch challenge

So it's been a productive weekend as far as time spent with myself goes. Saturday and Sunday afternoon spent in the craft room. The first page I'd like to share is for The Kaisercraft blog. I haven't been blog hopping in ages and when I visited this one I was really impressed with what their DT are doing. Gorgeous stuff.
Anyways this is the sketch and my interpretation.
Another tractor pic....there are plenty more of these photos still.

This is my Dad and brothers on his 60th.

....and finally, my gorgeous husband.

Enjoy your week.

Bakers Dozen

I've just spent 3 hours (ok make that 4 now) trying to get these pics up here, which in comparison to the 3 1/2 months that I've been meaning too, probably isn't so bad.
Have been so busy and this is the first weekend in so long that I can remember having nothing planned. Gaz is at work and I even did the groceries last night so that I could have the day free.

I've also had my computer crash due to owning a 15 year old boy that doesn't realise what is and what isn't appropriate websites to look at on his mums computer. Even though we did a recovery it's been so messy and I still don't have everything back how it should be.
I don't have any contacts either, have lost them all. My email addy is the same if anyone wants to mail me so that I can get my contact list started again :)
Have quite an urge to get into my craft room ATM but it's such a pigsty that I cringe every time I walk past it. I have just finished making wedding invites for one of our boys wedding plus a 21st card for him and a card for someone having a baby and the mess just keeps piling up. I've also done a couple of classes and a set of cards, oh and some layouts just for fun too, since the last time I blogged. Am trying to work out a way to keep this blog more up to date with the timme I have but hopefully can put some more pics up shortly. Have had very little time to clean it and my room also seems to have turned in to a homeless shelter for every thing that no one knows where to put.

So anyways, here in alpha order are our 12 month Bakers Dozen efforts, layouts done on calico.
pretty gorgeous I think :)

***ones that I made***
FOR JULES, the 1st page is a pocket and the 2nd pic shows the pages in the pocket
We also made tags to go with each of the layouts. I matched mine to the favourite colours of each lady.
***the ones made for me***












Aren't they all gorgeous, so happy with them. I still haven't decided how I want to store them, what type of covers to make.
I also want to let everyone know how much I appreciated all the work that went into these and will treasure them for ever. Really enjoyed being a part of this, thanks ladies.

I did originally add these to my Ipad but couldn't work out how to upload pics to blogger from it. The whole point was to be able to blog while I'm at work (lunch break of course) of in the car etc. If anyone know how to do it can they please let me know.
