A Wee little post

Happy Wednesday all, or hump day as some refer to it.
Just wanted to share this little cutie I colours with my copics......

The papers are from My Minds Eye, Lime Twist collection and the little friend sentiment is out of the Mega Mixed Messages set from Papertrey Ink.

Better continue on with house work....;o(

Happy Stamping

Try Stampin' on Tuesday

It has been a while since I played along with a sketch from Try Stampin' on Tuesday so when I seen this one I thought I would have a go....

And this is what I came up with...
Sorry this is a really poor photo but it was quick and light was fading fast and I had to post it off to make the Birthday in time.
I have used Cupcake collections from Papertrey Ink and the sentiment is from the Sweet As Can Be set also from PTI.
A day full of crafting today so maybe back with more.
Until then Happy Stamping

More On my Couch

Sick of lazing around on the couch yet????
I promise this is the last of them but I really did have fun using this stamp set that has been a little neglected of late in fact most of my stamps have been a little unloved.
This one is done in the colour combo of Always Artichoke, Cajun craze and Concord crush, the background behind the couch is from Kaiser and the polka dots are PTI along with the sentiment being also from the On My Couch set from PTI.
This one I think is my fav out of all of them, How about you which one do like the best?
This again has the combo of River Rock, Marina Mist and Cherry Cobbler.
All stamps are PTI.

Until next time
Happy Stamping

On My Couch

Well as promised I am back to show you some more cards I made using the On My Couch Additions stamp set from Papertrey Ink.....

So the first one is using Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler along with some papers from On the bright side 6x6 pad from My Minds Eye and the sentiment is from Signature greeting from Papertrey Ink.
 This one is using Concord crush and Peach Parfait DSP from Stampin' Up and the sentiment is from one of the Flower Fusion sets from PTI.
I still have a couple more might schedule them for mid week some time so I will see you then if not before.

Mojo Monday

OK Iam just scrapping this one in by the skin of my teeth.....
I played along with the sketch from Mojo Monday you can check it out here....
And this is what I came up with....
As you can see I flipped the sketch sideways, I have used Stampin' Up colours of River Rock, Marina Mist and Cherry Cobbler one of my Fav combos. I have also used the stamp set On my couch additions from Papertrey Ink.
I actually had a whole day on the couch this week, no not being lazy! I made a few more cards using this stamp set I will post them tomorrow so be sure to pop back and have a look.
But anyway I just might go and spend the rest of today really on the couch since it's the big B day toady for me and few to many wines last night doesn't make for an active day (wink ;)
So see you tomorrow.

Retro Sketches

On a roll...... This time I have used the sketch from Retro Sketches....
I have used one of my favorite images Rainy day Emma from CC Design and flipped the sketch on its side.....

 The sentiment is a Kazzaz stamp and there is some paper there from October afternoon and Kaiser.
I went to add some more to this card but nothing seemed right, I really liked the clean simple look of it so that's how it stayed.

Until next time

Two for One

As I mentioned in my last post I have been playing with a few challenges this morning.
I have combined two the first being The Paper Players with the theme of week being In Stitches

I have also taken the sketch from Sketch Saturday...
and this is what I came up with....
The image is a digi stamp from CC Design in which I coloured with my copics, the stamped sentiment is from Every Day Button Bits stamp set from Papertry Ink and there is a mix of papers from October Afternoon, Stampin' Up! and Simple Stories.
I have another to show but will save it for tomorrow so be sure to pop back then.
Happy Crafting

New Beginings!

I hang my head in shame over six months of pure neglect of this old blog and my blogging friends.
For this I am sorry.....
But we have been a little busy around here (Living the Dream)....As many of you know my Hubby and I own and run a family grain farm just south east of Toowoomba in which we are 6th generation we also owned a property near Millmerran an hour away in which we commuted back and forwards to work. October last year we sold our Millmerran property with great relief, planning to sit for awhile. But come December our lovely neighbours came to us with plans of retirement and an offer to buy that we couldn't refuse, as this has been the family dream for many many years, to expand our home land.
So as you see we really have been.... Living the Dream!!
I wont promise to be blogging regularly again for awhile as I have a lot of work to do to the main house before we move in but I will keep you updated and maybe some pics.
And the best news is now we have enough houses for all the family to move back home, with my oldest son taking up nest in the smaller house not to far away from us so I can keep an eye on him lol and my Hubby's Auntie and Uncle who grew up here moving back to our house after we move.
So all that and throw in Christmas a trip to beach for a few weeks and Kids getting back to school and thus is the reason for my lack of any kind of blogging or blog surfing. But I hope to catch up with some of you soon.
I have been doing some crafting though and have even sat down today to play with some challenges I will pop them in a new post next.
So keep looking
