Freshly Made Sketches #28

Back with another little cutie I coloured in front of the box the other night, this time I am using the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches....

I have used a cute little stamp from the Sarah Kay range which you can find at Scrapbook boutique, along with some more paper from My Minds Eye...
The greeting is from the Wishing You set from Papertrey Ink.
Well gotta run, off to town again today to the Orthodontist for middle child to have his braces tweaked so I guess I am in for a few restless nights, poor thing struggles with the pain after each visit for a couple of days, lucky its school holidays Yay!!

Sweet Sketch 147

Last night I stamped and printed a few images, grab my bucket of copics, perched myself in front of the telly with a coffee and big block of chocolate (cadbury of course) and set about some colouring.
So with my coloured images looking all so pretty today I went on a search to find a sketch to use them.
My first stop was at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and perfect....
 And here is my little Matilda looking her finest and of course some yummy papers from My Minds Eye just makes her look even finer.
 Its show holiday here in Toowoomba, so the Children and I are off to have lunch with Nanny for her Birthday, so I better go scrub up.

Flower Die work out

Hi All,  just wanted to show a few cards I made using the flower die From PaperTrey Ink.
I would have to say most of my inspiration for these cards came from the very talented Karen Thomas, she seems to have making a CAS card down to a fine art....
So here are my attempts...

Sorry the pics have not good lighting to read the sentiments but for any other details on these cards just flick me an email.

Well I just received in the mail an armful of 6x6 paper pads from My Minds Eye and October Afternoon  so I am off to drool a bit and may be bring my self to use some.
Is anyone else out there like that, not wanting to use some paper or embellishment because you like it too much and want to be greedy and keep it all to yourself.
(Yes I know one who is like that Don't I Chris!!)

Till next time

Throwing Down a Bit of Colour

The last lot of colours over at Colour Throw Down are soooo out of my comfort zone that I had to try it.
The colours to use were
Now I missed the boat on the cut off for this one but I still wanted to play along any way, so here is what I came up with...
Defiantly not one of my favorite cards I have made, but it will pass.
Sorry for the lighting but getting late in the day and I know if I don't do it now it won't happen.
Now for the particulars, I have used Stampin' Up! Morning cup stamp set along with some DSP also from Stampin' Up!

The Deconstructed Sketch

I found this great challenge site the other day while checking out some blogs its called The Deconstructed Sketch, so I thought I would play along, Here's what their sketch looked liked...
And this is what I came up with...
Only I forgot to add the scalloped boarder which would have gave it a prettier look, Oh well next time.
This is a CC Design stamp coloured with my copics, and the paper is My Minds Eye, Stella and Rose.
I hope you like her, I think she is a supa cute image.

Try Stampin' On Tuesdays #56

Ha you thought I was off to do the daily chores as I mentioned in last post, but I decided to have a quick blog surf and got a little carried away, so needless to say the chores can wait!!
When I first seen the sketch over at Try Stampin On Tuesdays I quickly shut the page with a "oh that's too hard", but I thought... no that's why its called a challenge so I went back copied it down and put the thinking cap on,
Here's the sketch...
See what I mean a bit tricky,  But this is what I came up with...
The flowers were actually coloured by Hubby, sometimes when he is sitting in the office (he thinks, its really my craft room) doing the farm bookwork he will have a play with my copics, I really think its his artist side coming out when he has these urges as his Aunt, Uncle and his Sister are all very talented potters and painters. So give him some credit as well...
The stamps We have used are Elements of Style and Simply said.
Back soon

Life is a Matter of Moments

I have used Elements of style stamp set along with the neutral colours whisper white and espresso
Well off to do the daily chores.
Till next time
