New Challenge time at Digital Delights

This week we have a challenge........ we are challenging you to use TEXTURE on your creation!!

and it is sponsored by none other than the fabby Simon Says Stamp

The prize is a $20 gift certificate to spend in their store

I had sooooo much fun with this challenge but also found it a challenge lol.....
I just had to use Wonderland Briley and this toadstool. First off I hand stitched around the outside, then around the next layer (that took ages lol) Then I embossed the lard blue scalloped circle and distressed the edges and all the outside edges of my layers. Not sure if you can tell but the spots on the toadstool and also the stem are glitter.
Items used: copics, wonderland briley, toadstool, pearls, stitching, embossing glitter, ribbon & brads.
Have a good night

Just because

Good Afternoon

I made this card just because and am not 100% happy with how it looks :( Don't you hate days like that!

Please help

Lisa at needs your generous cards....

Details from Lisa's blog....

I am having a special event for my sister Jayme. She is in her early 50's and has terminal lung cancer. To make it worse, her sweet dachshund Molly passed away a couple weeks ago. Today we learned her cancer has spread to several other areas and her time is running out. I am asking for all my card making friends to send her a fun card...not really get well cards obviously, but something pretty or funny that will make her smile. She is a frog collector so frog cards would be awesome! I have been blessed by all those I design for to have a wonderful offer of blog candy. Details are below on how to enter. I will choose a winner June 2nd.

Hope you can help Lisa out for a smile for her

I'm Back!

In the land of internet and blogging :) Golly gosh what an exhausting few days I've had! I'm still recovering! I shopped til the kids dropped hehehe and had a great time away at the folks. I forgot to take my card making stuff so I'm really behind in that one. Hence why I'm having a movie day with the kids, so I can make my deadlines!!!

Hope you all are well.

While ago I posted about how we got flooded and were waiting on a new camera from the insurance place....well 4mths later I got the phone call to say it had finally arrived. So i drove 1.4hrs to get it (luckily was staying at my parents near bys) and I go today to pick it up to find the stupid company has gone into receivership!!!! OMG I was sooooo annoyed! So back on the phone to insurance who are being rather kind this time round.....and the worst part....on our way out of the store the local news crew bombarded me with questions and so I ended up on the news! (hangs head in shame!) I'm soooo embarrassed lol....never mind, atleast they didn't show too much off me and only a few sentences thank goodness!

Am still out and about but will be back on track from monday :)

take care and have a good week

Over at Digital Delights there is a Retiring SALE. These super cute images are being retired to make way for some new ones coming so get them while you can....and they are $1.00 or LESS!!!!!!


I know I've asked before but is anyone keen for a stamp swap? I'd love to get some more Magnolia stamped images or Gorjus Girls by sugar nellie. If no one is interested in any images I have, I'd actually be happy to pay for some stamped images if anyone is interested?


Best Friends

Good Morning!

Over at lily-boo's a Best Friends release has just come out. It's so cute (and a must have!) I made this card so I could use this image.

The bus has hit me!

The Flu bus that is! OMG I'm so sick! My lovely kids have coughed all over me and shared their horrid germs :( I feel so darn horrible and sick I can barely move! No crafting from me for a few days, I'll be in bed :(

Tuesday, May 4


Well I'll humour you all.....we have a small acreage and hope to be moving next year to somewhere with lots more land., we have no idea where hubby will get posted but we find that exciting (and I'll admit, stressful!) but anyways we have a Ram, I got him from my BFF as his mum rejected him so at 2 days Old I had Jasper and was bottle feeding him. He started to think I was his mummy and I loved it! He even would chase the car out the drive way, jump at the door to be let in and chase the dogs, I actually had to stop babying him cause he thought he was a dog he was supposed to be whethered (ringed) but well something went wrong and he grew horns and knackers :)

We got him a girlfriend to mate with and I called her Alice (Twilight fan here lol) and he loves her, and I mean smitten with her kind of love. Then something happened the other week - I touched his horns, and now he hates me! So bad that we are going to eat him - sorry if that offends anyone, I always said I'd never eat my pets but well, when he ramed me, starting bucking trying to hurt me I knew I couldn't keep him. He's even now done it to my hubby! I'm so frightened he will hurt a child that I can't risk it.

Here is why he hurts!
