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




Thanks for dropping by!


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

Sunday, November 4, 2018


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.


Altenew Oct Inspiration Challenge

Thursday, October 25, 2018


Loved the colours for this challenge, whilst the USA is in Autumn mode we are warming up and enjoying a little more sunshine here in New Zealand. I loved the challenge of these colours and hope you enjoy my card today. Here is the inspiration for this challenge by the lovely Virginia Lu





I used a butterfly the painted butterfly set and then found a leaf from my Beautiful Day set which I have long adored. the sentiment is from the thinking of you set (another one I love and use often)
For my background I used the halftone circles on kraft cardstock and then flicked some of the blck watercolour paint from the Altenew pellet and that was my card complete....Oh and of course a string bow :) 



Color Throwdown #512

Monday, October 1, 2018

I just recently started playing with some stamps that I have had waiting to be inked for longer than I care to confess!. Recently I have been playing with Altenew stamps and inks and have fallen in love with the inks. I am going to have to build upon the inks that I have and see through a peek on their fb page that there are new colours coming! Exciting, cannot wait for the October release.
Here is my card for this weeks Challenge.
