Friendship is a promise for the heart....

My second card for the day it is definitely CAS which is why it came together so quickly. Over at CAS-UAL Fridays they want hearts with bright summer colours which sounded fun. Make sure you pop on over and check out the other great cards and as always...thanks for stopping by.


July's challenge (yes I am actually a day early with my post) for the RobVikVik challenge was a technique challenge that Robyn put forward. She saw Kristina's beautiful card here and challenged us to use the technique Kristina had used. So other than using this technique our colour and layout was 'anything goes'. Sadly I must admit it has been so long since I have heat embossed that I didn't know if my powder would work but lucky for me it did and I am really pleased with how the card turned out. I have used the latest sketch from Freshly Made Sketches but didn't make the band quite as big as it should be as I didn't want to cut too much of the pretty background card I had just made. I was also able to use one of the die cuts I cut out while visiting Robyn last month to finish it off with a sentiment. It feels really good to have made this card and be happy with it, the fact that it has come together so easily is nice as I have been missing my mojo for a while now. I wasn't able to have my regular stamping day on Saturday as our son turned 18 and he had a party that night but lucky for me it is a public holiday (Show Day) so I am stamping today. On that note...I'm off to search the challenge blogs....thanks for stopping by.

Take time to the sun

Well, today I have struggled to get my mojo happening and my card to come much so I have changed tact about 3 times but finally I have finished a card and I'm really happy with the end result. I made this card with the latest theme from Cards in Envy in mind - Fun in the Sun....this card shows exactly where I live, in the tropics, even though it's not summer here at the moment but then most people would say we don't have a winter <grin>. I hope your weekend is off to a great start and as always, thanks for stopping by.

Our Beautiful World...By the Seashore

 Well it's been a while since I have been able to play along with the Our Beautiful World team so I was happy to see that this week's theme was By the Seaside which I have lots of photos of. My first shot is of  little Soldier Crabs...I love these little guys and its so nice to see them when we walk along the beach as there doesn't seem to be as many as there used to be when I was a child.

  The next shot is of friends and family having some quiet fishing time...I'm not much of a fisher person but when I saw them stretched out along the shoreline, I just knew it would be a great photo.

This is just a nice scenic shot....

And an early evening shot of the moon rising up over the horizon...

And last but not is my hubby and our little dog Ozzie. Ozzie used to be terrified of water so it is great to see him walking out into the waves quite happily these days just because he was walking with Dad he knew he would be safe.

Make sure you pop on over and check out the other amazing photo's and perhaps join in....thanks for stopping by.

RobVikVik June Challenge

 Well it's been a couple of weeks since I've had a play in my craft room and this is what I came up with. This challenge is created by our small group, my friend Robyn + my sister in law Vikki R + myself which is why it's called the RobVikVik challenge. This month Robyn chose the layout, Vikki R requested a dress to be used and I picked a photo inspiration. I love this dress stamp but don't use it enough so it was a great suggestion by Vikki. It's a wet and cold day here in Nth Queensland which to be honest is making it a miserable day so I hope your Saturday is much nicer....until next time, happy stamping.

Sending Hugs Your Way

I've finally been able to post my card...yippee!!...damn internet!! ongoing saga in our house. Anyway, I have chosen to play along with Cardabilities using their latest sketch and the latest colour combo from the new Time Out Challenges to help create my card. Also over at The Shabby Tea Room they want wheels, pink flowers & texture and I've had this lady on a scooter and those tiny little flowers floating around my desk for a long time now so it's good to finally get to use them, I knew they would come in handy one day...hehe....
Well, I'm off to do some chores as I have been out with the hubby all morning visiting an injured friend and then going out to lunch together. We regularly go out to lunch when we can because he is a shift worker who works away which I also work out of town too and we haven't had dinner together since last Sunday. So now I have to catch up on my house work or it won't get done until next weekend as it just doesn't happen through the week for me. I hope you're having a great weekend...until next time, happy stamping.
