Happy Birthday Em!

Told you I would be back soon,   Yesterday was my Daughter Emily's Birthday so I wanted to share with you a pic of the card I made her

and a pic of my Baby girl turning 10....
Not quite a baby any more (apparently) but being my youngest and only girl, she will always be my baby.


Card Packs all round.

I made a card the other day when I was planing an up and coming workshop, I wanted to use the technique of markers to stamps and when I had made it I loved the bright colour of the flowers against the white back drop so much that I decided to make a few in different colours.......
So when I had so many made I thought they looked so good together that they should be in a set
so I decided that was their fate.
Here is the box I made to hold them all....
and the inside.....
Then while I was on a roll I make some smaller note cards similar.......
Sorry about the pic of these ones but my batteries just went flat and living out of town does sometimes have its disadvantages, like when you can't just slip down to shop.
But anyway back to job at hand,
This is case I made to hold the smaller cards...
Yes it was a long day in the office that day, with all that colouring of stamps but I really think it was worth it, what do you think?
Back soon (I can hear you all go yeah yeah but no really I will be)
But until then
Keep warm

Clean and Simple # 149

Yeah Yeah I know, back again, two posts in two days, it's a near miracle, but don't get to excited it probably wont last although I have a slow schedule for a few weeks now so who knows I may just surprise you.
Anyways on to job at hand, the sketch at Clean and Simple this week looked rather interesting...
and the new papers I got last week from My minds eye were screaming to be used, so this is what I came up with...
This sketch would also look great turned on its side, why don't you have a go and then pop over to Clean and Simple and check out what everyone else came up with.
I feel its to cold to craft today my little fingers are like ice blocks, we have a wind chill factor here today of minus 2,  hopefully the sun will pop out later and warm things up but until then I am off to the fire.
Keep warm

Try Stampin' on Tuesdays #23

Finally time for challenges, and I am just scraping in by minutes for this one at Try Stampin on Tuesday's....
Here is the sketch they gave us....
and this is what I came up with....
Now to look hard this card could send your eyes a little funny, but I just love the country look paper, which is from Kaiser,  the Red Heart paper and Thank you stamp is from Stampin' Up! and the cute little cherry stamp is from Everyday button bits ( PTI.)
So I  better rush off and enter this card over at Try Stampin on Tusdays as I think it is down to just minutes to go... You should go and check out the DT cards this week they are all really pretty too.
Happy Stamping

Still Here

Ok Ok I am slack I admit it, but it has been school holidays..... and yeah  I know... that's no excuse so I will just get on with the post.
I am hoping to make up for the absence by showing not one but two cards!!!
So here is the couple of cards I did the other day...

Now I cased using these colours with this stamp set from the very clever Alisa Tilsner, I found them in one of my old editions Stamping and Paper Craft Magazine, but I am sure if you check out her blog here they should be on there somewhere and who knows what else you may find along the way because she does such beautiful work.
The colours are Old Olive, So Saffron, and Riding Hood red with the Aviary Stamp set, all from Stampin' Up!
Best be off,  hopefully back sooner than later!
Happy Stamping
