The Sweet Stop #SSS151 & The Play Date Cafe #124


Hello Fellow Bloggers, well I actually sat down again this morning and made another card, this is a big thing considering I didn't really feel like stamping at all this weekend!! For this card, I chose the latest sketch from The Sweet Stop & for the colours the latest challenge from Play Date Cafe. These are really colours I would think of combining but that is what makes it fun. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by. Until next week, happy stamping or whatever else life brings you.

Mojo #233 & Color Throwdown #CTD184

 Hi Stampers, well I haven't made a card for a couple of weeks now as my stamping buddy Robyn is away for several weeks so I don't have her to motivate me. But this morning after talking to her last night when she gave me a bit of a pep talk I made myself sit down and have a look at the latest challenges. I ended up picking this weeks mojo monday sketch and this weeks color throwdown challenge and this is what I came up with. This card sort of just evolved because of the colours we had to use and with the paper I picked to make it with. I really had to make a sympathy card for another good friend of mine who's Mum passed away last week. Even though that wasn't what I intended to make, as I was busy making this card, I thought it could be turned into one as the paper lent it that way. I hope she likes it and I hope you do too.
Thanks for stopping by....until next time, happy stamping.

Deconstructed Sketch #42 & Play Date Cafe #122


Well Stampers, I am back with another card for the day, this time I have used the latest sketch from Deconstructed Scketch & for the colour scheme I have used the latest challenge from the Play Date Cafe girls. Yellow is not a colour I gravitate too but its always good to step outside your comfort zone every now & again. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by. Until next time....

Mojo #231

Hi Fellow Stampers, I am having a great Saturday, stamping & skyping with my good friend Robyn. Can't beat that for a combination!! I am really happy with the card I have made today using this weeks Mojo sketch. I have to say I got a lot of inspiration from Andrea Ewen's Mojo card as I was struggling for inspiration when I first sat down.  Hope you like it too, thanks for stopping by.

Mojo #230 & Shabby Tea Room #103 - Shabby Shutters

Hi All, I hope your weekend is off to a flying start...I have had a good day today even though my stamping buddy is not with me, hopefully we will have a skype/stamping day next saturday as long as life doesn't get in our way....
This morning, I sat down and made a card using the latest Mojo Monday sketch and the the latest Shabby Tea Room colour scheme. I used one of my new Spellbinders I bought recently. Always exciting getting new stuff!! Then I was off to have a little 'birthday party for my beautiful little niece Kacee. Kacee is a very special little girl, not only was I lucky enough to be able to be there for her birth but she is a 'Leap Year' babe, so this is her very first 'actual' birthday she has had as we usually celebrate her birthday a day early.
Anyway, I hope you like my card, making circle cards is always out of my 'comfort zone' but I attempt them every now and then, hope you like it and until next time, thanks for stopping by.

I am on a Design Team!!!

WOW!! I never thought I would ever be on a Design Team but here I am!!! I made a card using an old sketch design from Sketches:Creatively Yours late last year and when I posted it to Ali she added my email & card to the blog and told me about the DT call that would be happening soon and asked me to apply. After much tooing & froing wondering if I would have the time to give this position the commitment it deserves.....I took the plunge!! I am sooooo excited and very proud to have been chosen to be a part of this team. Ali & Ann are such lovely ladies and I have been made to feel very welcome & wanted from the very first moment I contacted them. They are not only lovely they are very creative and looking at the new DT blogs this also applies to them. Make sure you go and check out the DT amazing creations on their blogs and whether you are a scrapbooker or a card maker there will be something on Sketches:Creatively Yours to give you inspiration. Until next time, thanks for stopping by.
