Hey Valentine

Wow Friday already. The week sure has flown. I borrowed the stamp set Hey Valentine from my friend. I had fun colouring the little pirate and the fish also.I used a piece of paper from the Adventure Bound designer paper stack from the Occasions catalogue. I cut the circle for the second card out of the front piece on the first card. I got both cards and the strips in the centre out of the one piece.

 I cut the words off the pirate and used it for a birthday card. Once again I have used the Irresistibly Yours DSP and brayered it with Pacific Point. 

Have a good weekend

Indescribable Gift

hi there, 
I have been busy with the renovation. We have painted all through the main living areas and had the floors ground and tiles laid. it looks so good. Today I have been washing down furniture that got all dusty while outside so we can bring the furniture back in.

Andrea Buckland's photo.

 Anyway back to cards. I so love colouring the blossom branch from the Easter set Indescribable Gift. While the Big Bash cricket was on I kept my hands busy colouring stamped images while I watched, or more listened each night with Graham. I now have a container full of coloured stamped items ready to put on cards. Anyway here is a couple of cards made with it. 

 I used the Irresistibly Yours DSP from SAB and coloured it to match the Calypso Coral card stock.

I really love the new Spring Flowers embossing folder and have used it here and also cut around the buds that poked out from my oval cut.

thank you for stopping by and I will have some more cards for you tomorrow.

A Happy Thing

Hi there, 

I love lemons. They are so good in cooking and makes a glass of water taste wonderful with a few slices in. I have a tree in my back yard. 

When I saw the set A Happy Thing in the Sale-a-bration catalogue this year I had to have it. The stamp only has one lemon but with some masking you can add as many as you like, I also love the bird and have used it by cutting it out and adding to a floral stamp or just on its own like on the calendars. Blendabilities make colouring it so easy.

 I haven't added a greeting to this card yet so I can choose one when it is needed

 The DSP is from Birthday Bash and Painted Blooms. The sentiment is from the Lotus Blossom stamp set.

 the greeting here is from Guy Greetings 

 The blossom is from Indescribable Gift

I'm doing well this year as it is only just over a month and I have posted more than I did all of last year. Now I just need to keep it up.

For my launches I made some calendars using sets from the Occasions Mini and the Sale-a-bration catalogue. I gave everyone one and have some sitting here in envelopes ready to post to my family. I must do that very soon or the year will have gone before they get them.I used the Top Note bigz die for the base. I put magnets on the back so they can be used as a fridge magnet. 

 thanks for stopping by.

Moon Lake

hi there, 

Before I get into card making I would like to spare a thought for all the firefighters down in the Manjimup Shire fighting the Northcliff, Windy Harbour fires in the South West. My brother and 3 of my nephews are out fighting these fires. I am praying that they and every other fire fighter keeps safe. They are volunteer fire fighters. 

The stamp set I have used for today's cards is Moon Lake. Its a nice set for male cards. I have used a piece of the Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP on the first card. I love this paper. You can colour it by either sponging of brayering any colour on it. I have sponged this with crumb cake.

This card I have used Crumb Cake for the base and Early Espresso DSP and Crumb Cake seam binding for the ribbon.

 Have a great weekend
