Birthday Princess

I found another blog challenge recently, Simply Stampin' Challenge, and have finally been able to play along! The challenge this week was a gorgeous colour combo - perfect for a girly birthday card.

One of Miss L's friend's is turning 6 next week, and she is very girly and loves everything pink and princess (just like my big girl), so here's what I came up with - appropriately pink, lots of sparkle and a crown on the cake to make it a princess :) MissL Loves it, so hopefully so will the birthday girl!

Thanks for visiting!

Simple Thanks

Don't fall off your chair. Yes! It's another post from me! I think my mojo has decided to return, and it certainly helps that my little one had a total of 3 1/2 hours sleeping today! Yay!

I have still been blog hopping during my absence from posting and came across Freshly Made Sketches. You know I'm always up for a challenge and inspiration, so I decided to play along this week with this fantastic sketch. I'll be using this one again.

A friend requested a nice thank you card, so I started with the sketch and the Everday Enchantment paper available through Sale-a-Bration and took it from there - it all fell together nicely! A little bit of Very Vanilla velvet ribbon, the jewellery tag punch and the fabulous lace ribbon border punch and it was done! My friend has given the nod of approval, so all is good.

Have a great week and thank you for visiting!

Three T-Rexs

Hello again!

Apologies for the lack of postings again - I am seriously in awe of those of you who have two or more children and still manage to find time to indulge your passions :) I have managed to squeeze in some time over the past couple of days to finish some long overdue projects.

Today I have used the latest Sweet Sunday Sketch to make a card for my godson (not sure if I'll get it in for the challenge on time though....) HAD to use Dinoroar for him and of course his age is an important addition at three! I pulled the colours from the DSP, used the new 1" square and postage stamp punches for the dinos and faux sueded some Baja Breeze for the panel.

Thanks for visiting
Hope you have a great weekend!

Fish Kisses

Wow, doesn't time fly? I hope you all had a wonderful Festive Season, and that 2012 is treating you well thus far. We had a lovely trip away visiting and family and friends, and I didn't realise how many activities we participated in until I printed all my photos today - it was a lot!! Hopefully I'll be able to get some scrapbooking done soon to share the memories with you.

Valentine's Day is almost upon us, and many of the challenge blogs have Valentine's/love themes, including Stampin' Royalty. Due to being away, it has been quite some time since I've been able to sit down at my craft desk and participate in a challenge, but that has mow changed. I think it's a bit cute, and Luana came up with the title of Fish Kisses :)

We used a window shade with a fish on it while we were away, which inspired my punch art fish for this card. These little fishies were made using the Ornament, 5 Petal Flower, Small Heart and Owl (for the eyes) punches; the ends of the fins have been popped up with dimensionals.

Must head to bed, but hopefully I'll be able to share a few more projects with you over the next few months.

Thanks for visiting!
