Colour Throw down #143

Well the lack in posts has many excuses, some including computer problems, blogger being troublesome, and probably the main reason is just plain lack of mojo!!
So to try and get it back I thought I might play along with Colour Throw down this week, here are the colours they gave us to play with...
And this is what I came up with...
Now you can see... were oh were has that mojo gone lol, It didn't turn out anything like it was ment too, but then I thought hey something at the moment is better than nothing!!
I have been doing a lot of catering for our sports days at school lately and while in the catering supply shop picking up some coffee cups I came across these cute little paper doily's, they were only $1.80 a pack so now I have 250 of them lol.
I have also used PTI tea for two stamp set, Hero arts saying stamp, and Tres chic Stampin' Up! stamp.

Better go and work on that mojo...

Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Good Monday Morning to you all...The start of another week already, But for the first time in ages I have nearly a free week Yeah!!! more stamping time.
I decided I need a few boy cards in my stash so I used the sketch at Sweet sketch Wednesday this week to make this cute little rocket card...
The rocket stamp is from the Pun Fun stamp set from Stampin'Up! along with the Real red card stock and Night of navy card stock and ribbon. I have also used the Polka dot stamp set from PTI and there new set Grunge me for the subtle mess in the back ground (a little hard to see in pic) and of course I have coloured the rocket with my copics, have I told you how much I love them lately lol.
Since its a quite week for me, might see you back here soon!

More Colouring with Copics

I told you a few posts back I would show what else I had been colouring with my new Copics...
So here is another cute little pic. This one is a Stamp called A kiss for Chloe from Sarah Kay.
I just love the way these pens blend and are so easy to use, I am currently in process of choosing some more colours to purchase and let me tell you it is a process!! I spend days looking at that big colour wheel its starting to send me dizzy lol.
I just wish we had some classes close by, the nearest I have found is Brisbane which I don't mind to travel to  but they are booked out until July!  So I guess it's back to good old U tube!!
Thanks for stopping by

Try Stampin' on Tuesdays #13

Happy Mothers Day to all, I hope you all enjoy a stress free day, which would mean no Children fighting, mine try hard we usually get to about lunch and they finally have had enough of looking at each other politely and someone has to start... but hay that's part of being a Mum refereeing and you know we wouldn't have it any other way really! (Would we???) lol

Over at Try Stamping on Tuesdays is a sketch of course for you to play along with again this week, and this is what I came up with...
I have gone back to the Morning Cup stamp set from Stampin' Up! it seems to always call my name when standing in front of my stamp shelves picking what to use. I have coloured it using my copics and I have used So Saffron, Chocolate chip and Whisper white card stock along with some double stitched chocolate chip ribbon all from Stampin' Up! as well.
Again Enjoy your day!!
Happy Stamping

Scattered Showers

I found a challenge site a few weeks back that I thought was right up my ally... I Love to Stamp...it's Monthly!! Now I thought great! I am sure to get this one done on time, but where does the time go??? here we are a new month again, So I miss the cut off, maybe next month! Anyway since I did it, I might as well show you...
This was the sketch
and this is what I came up with...
I have used the very cute stamp set from PTI called Scattered Showers along with some 6x6 DSP from Kaiser Craft. The colour combo is Old Olive and Rich Razzelberry from Stampin' Up!
Now I had some scraps let over and have decided that after my clean out I was going to try and use scraps straight away in stead of letting them build up (yeah like this is going to last lol) but anyway I am off to a good start I also covered another little note book...
So I hope you like, and may be I will get next months challenge done a little quicker!!
Happy Stamping

Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Here's the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday this week...
 I got a nice little parcel from the States yesterday full of some cute little stamps including some from Tilda Town  I know the Australia Dollar being so high is not good for the exporting trade, but boy its good for the pocket on craft shopping at the moment!! You have to be mad not take advantage. I think I have already spent my yearly allowance and each day as the dollar goes up, I have a good excuse to buy more!!
Any way this is my card for the sketch...
Sorry the Pictures not so good but it is late afternoon and the sun is fading fast...I have used my Copics to colour her of coarse, I also have used a PTI flower die with some felt and I have also used Bashful blue and Pretty in Pink DSP along with Crumb cake and Whisper white card stock from Stampin' Up! also the greeting is from Short and Sweet a Stampin' Up! set.
Until next time
Happy Stamping
