Hi Blogger Friends, I have finally got around to finishing my card for the latest Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge. I have never participated in their sketches as I don't have any Waltzing Mouse stamps but I read the other day that you can use any stamps now but the would like you to use Waltzing Mouse stamps if you have them. I really liked this layout and once again I have dabbled with my Distress Inks to make my background which has turned out really nice. Sadly...or maybe not...this just encourages me to buy more Distress As always, thanks for stopping by.

ISSC#43 + Timeless Tuesday #196

Hi Fellow Bloggers, well this is my last card for the day. It is 11pm so I think it is time for bed....but before I go I just need to post this For this card I have chosen to use the latest I Spy Sketch for my design and over on Timeless Tuesday they have asked for a card that makes you happy. Well this card definitely makes me happy for a few reasons...I am finally getting the hang of these Tim Holtz Distress Inks which I have used to make my background. I have also used some new flourish stamps that I can see becoming a firm favourite and I have had my first attempt at Liquid Pearls that I think worked out well for my first try and...I really like this card!! I think the soft colours and the soft stamping in the background have turned out really nice...what do you think? As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope the rest of your weekend is awesome!! Until next time...happy stamping.

FMS #60 + SOS

Hi Fellow Bloggers, well I didn't get to post my fourth card last night as yes..again..I had to drop my son off somewhere and pick my daughter up so by the time I got home after a big day of stamping (never a chore) and all that running around..I was spent. Had dinner & a couple of drinks and settled down in front of the TV for the rest of the night. But I am up early (as usual) and soon my daughter & I are off to have a 'girls breakfast' with my niece and two sister in-laws so I have snuck into My Third to put my card together and post it. This card has been designed using the latest Freshly Made Sketch & I am also going to add it into the latest Shopping Our Stash challenge along with my other card. For this card..I just had to HAVE that Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch and Flower Punch!!
Well today is Remembrance Day in Australia, a day to remember our fallen diggers that paid the ultimate sacrifice while defending our country and our freedom. Lest we forget...

CAS(E) #5 + AC #146

I am on a roll today...this is my third card for the day!! I cannot remember the last time I have posted three cards in a day and I have intentions of posting a fourth if all goes according to plan. I have even had to stop and take my son here or my daughter there and have still been able to make and post three cards...that's what's possible when you're a woman...<grin>
For this card I have used the latest CAS(E) this Sketch for design and for colour I have used the latest Annabelle Stamps Colour Challenge. I love simple Christmas cards because you have to make so many of them...if I am short a few cards, I think I will make a few more of this one...quick & easy. Thanks for popping by...

The Craft Meow Sketch - November + SOS #76

Hi All, here is my second card for the day and I am very happy with this one!! I have used the latest Craft Meow sketch for my design and over at Shopping Our Stash they have asked us to use something that we just had to have or was a bargain we just had to have....well my just had to have is Distress Inks. I have to admit I am a late starter in the world of Distress Inks but after googling a few sites and seeing what you can do, well I am converted!!! ;-) So needless to say there are a lot more colours out there that 'I just have to have'!!!! Thanks for calling....

RS #36 + JAI #143

Hi Stamping Friends, I am here posting my first card for the weekend. I didn't think anything was going to happen for a while there as I have had some major internet problems today but luckily we have sorted it out and I am back online!! It's like losing an arm when you lose internet...well for me!! I really liked this layout but in the end it was a bit hard but I think that was the colour combo making it a bit tough. After persisting I am quite happy with it. The design is the latest Retro Sketch and the colours are from Just Add Ink make sure you check them out. Well thanks for stopping by...see you tomorrow sometime. Happy Stamping..

Hi Blogger Friends, hope your Sunday is relaxing & fun...I must admit Sunday is my 'housework' day but that hasn't really happened today and I have been out in 'My Third' making another xmas card. For this card I have used the latest Freshly Made Sketches design and for colour I used scrap!! woohoo!! Love it when I am able to use up some scrap. I have to acknowledge two talented ladies that don't know it but have given me some inspiration for my card. I really like how Tui Nathan scored her band through the middle of her card so I thought I would do that too. I have done scoring a couple of times as I have seen it on a few cards of late but I liked how Tui's was a  bit of a centrepiece to her card. The other talented lady is my good friend Robyn who is currently travelling so is living out of a caravan with her hubby and needless to say she doesn't have her complete stash with her (it would fill the caravan all on its own lol) so she has been improvising with her embellishments by decorating buttons and button size circles with bling which you can see here and as I don't have any really nice buttons I decided to dress this one up. So, I will stop talking now <grin>, thanks for stopping by and until next time, happy stamping.

JAI #142 + SOS #75

Hi Stampers, here is my second card for the day and I must say this one worked out much better than my last. I have used the latest Just Add Ink sketch and Shopping Our Stash asked you to us a 3D card which is never a chore for that's probably it for me today as we have friends coming over tonight so I need to get a bit organised before they arrive. I hope your weekend is going well and as always, thanks for stopping by.

RS #35 + PPA #146

Hi All, I am here stamping & skyping with my best bud Robyn which is always good fun even though this card did not work out anything like how I had it pictured in my head...but then that happens sometimes. For inspiration I used the latest Retro Sketches design and for colour I used the latest Pals Paper Arts selection thanks ladies for the inspiration. Well I am off to see what other challenges are happening today, hope to see you back a bit later.
