Southern Girls Challenge

Tuesday, December 4, 2018

Yay this week is anything goes and I am happy as I have really enjoyed doing blended backgrounds so much and this gave me a very good excuse to do another. Please go and check the blog out as the team really did give some awesome inspiration and there are more than cards to check out.
I am so hoping to do a wedding album for me next year full of beautiful memories of the hubby I still love and miss so dearly. This weeks inspiration has spurred me on to stop thinking about it and start doing it!. Here is my card for this fortnights challenge. I so LOVE snowmen and this one just captured my heart. He is from Sweet n Sassy and I love him so. I cannot believe that this is the first time he has seen ink!


Thanks for stopping by!

Couldn't resist!

I so enjoyed ink splatters that I decided to have another play and here is my second card for the Southern Girls Challenge.  Check this blog out and it is super awesome as there is a good component of Kiwi and Aussie Cardmakers in this group. It would be lovely to get to know a few more local crafters!
I have had this set sitting in view for more time that I care to confess and thought it would look good with a oxide ink backdrop with splatters. I have lots of distress inks but only one oxide pad and was keen to try it out. LOVE how it blends onto the cardstock!
So here is my second card with oxide ink splatters and stamps coloured with distress ink pens.
Many thanks for dropping by.


Southern Girls Challenge

Saturday, November 17, 2018


This fortnight for the Southern Girls Challenge the theme is Inks and Sprays. I received a little parcel from Papertrey ink this week and had spoiled myself somewhat with the beautiful Botanical Bounty set so thought I would ink up those beautiful blossoms and throw a few ink splatters about :).
I also used a lovely die that is from a series being done this year called shape shifters............Love them to bits!. I used Papertrey Inks to colour my blossoms and the light blue is looking a little gray in my photo. So hard to get a true reflection of the colours :). Well here is my card, thanks for stopping by.  Check out this awesome Challenge,  would love to see you sharing there to!


Papertrey Create Along With Us

Monday, November 12, 2018

Yet again Papertrey ink are sharing peeks of another amazing release. I just keep loving everything and wish I had a Champagne pocket rather than a beer pocket :) but hey I am blessed to be able to purchase some of what I love. I am playing along with the Create along with us challenge and today I have been insprired by Betsy Veldman's beautiful Card. I have taken the inspiration of her beautiful sky background to make my card today
Here is the card I used for my inspiration, so beautiful!



This is the card I created after being so inspired by the talent of Betsy <3

Southern Girls Challenge Use a Sticker

Thursday, November 8, 2018

I recently found a close to home challenge that while open to everywhere has a large component of New Zealand and Australian crafters :) would be nice to get to know others from closer by that have the same passion for crafting. I took a look around the wonderful sponsors store 'Kinda Cute'




 I just could not resist this gorgeous snowman! I cut him out and did a little colouring to tie in with my background paper and then finished my card of with some slightly puffy stickers as was the challenge this week :) . I sure look forward to seeing what others have done with this challenge and hope to drop by your blogs soon. Happy Cardmaking! Here is my creation for this challange





Make it Monday #341

Make it monday is something I always look forward to, it has been some time since I actively participated as working fulltime night shift has its challenges on its own!. I loved this technique and decided I would love to make a Christmas card using this technique. Double whammy as I get to play along and I can also add a card to my growing pile of Chrissy cards that I am determined to have sent out in good time this year.
Here are Dawns BEAUTIFUL challenge cards...............


Gorgeous to the core!. This is what I created, thank-you to Papertrey Ink for all the wonderful inspiration you share.

How delighted I was to see a sketch by Julee up :) not that I need reason to pull out my beautiful Verve stamps, but what better way to play along! I hope you like my card today and thanks bunches for dropping by. I am now off to visit some of the blogs that have played along in the challenge.
