Viva La Verve March Sketch

March is here and the weather in New Zealand is getting cooler, whilst it will hopefully be getting a little warmer for my blogging friends in the USA.
Here is this months sketch

This is my card.

PTI Make it Monday

Sunday, March 4, 2018

Just in on this one! Had a long stretch of nights and not so easy to get creative when one is tired. I am enjoying the Make it Monday series as I think I have only ever masked once before.  It is great to be trying different techniques. I have had this stamp set for quite some time, really enjoyed opening it and giving it some ink. I have used the larger apple from the What the Doodle series Apples.
Here is my card for this weeks Challenge.

Viva La Verve February Sketch

Wednesday, February 28, 2018

Just got this card in by a day ;)   Here is the sketch for this month.

Here is my card :). I feel like a woman of so few words but my eyes are like closing as I type. It is midday and I worked last night so need to get to bed and have some sleep. Thanks for dropping by!

February Blog Hop PTI

Sunday, February 25, 2018

Cannot believe another hop has come around. Before we know it we will be marching on into March. How quickly the months roll on over. Wonderful inspiration for this months hop. I have to say I have been pretty tired of the last week and inspiration has not been my friend. Now that my card is done I am thinking of other possibilities or ways I could have gone with my card :)
Here is the inspiration pic for this month.........

Here is my card for today. I purchased the Vintage Jadeite some time back in cardstock and patterned paper and thought this was the time to open and use it. I did cover the dotted paper with a piece of frosted plastic which muted the colour a little. Thanks for calling in today, I am off to sleep now that I have posted my card as had a very busy nightshift (my fourth) and looking forward to counting bunnies :) Good night all

Make it Monday PTI

Tuesday, February 20, 2018

I love the Make it Monday happening. It helps me to think outside of the box as my sentiments are mostly cut out and added. Today I decided I wanted a card that could be used for the man in someone's life. So without further ado here is what I came up with. Thanks to Laurie for all the wonderful inspiration. I so totally adore her creations

Last Challenge for PTI 11th Anniversary

Friday, February 16, 2018

Wowser what a fun time this release has been and really enjoyed the FB live yesterday. Congrats to the winners, so excited for those that heard there names called. Right straight to the posting as I am so tired. Worked last night then home and put a lamb casserole in the slow cooker and made a big tray of spaghetti bolognese so that I don't have to cook for the next three nights :)

PTI Day 7 Use dies only

Tuesday, February 13, 2018

Day 7 was a call to use dies only for a stamps! I don't think I have ever made a card with dies only until today. I was so happy to be able to shout myself some of the new coordinating Bitty Big papers to make cards with and used them for the first time today for this new challenge.
Hawaiian Shores has to be hands down one of my fav PTI colours. Today I made a birthday card to celebrate PTI's 11th birthday. It was a great thing as I discovered those gorgeous little hearts in a set I bought a few years ago for Valentine cards.

Happy Birthday PTI
