It takes a long time....

Today's card just sort of happened, I came out and made made a master board with my DI's then stamped some flowers randomly over what to do...I had been looking at the latest challenge from The Paper Players for a couple of days now, but I must admit, I'm not a big fan of tags on cards so I wasn't sure if I would play along or not but after mulling over my master board, I came up with this.

As is my Noel card for our local ABC challenge. As we are up to 'N', I had to make a tag or card with N as it's main theme. I have had this Noel die cut floating around on my desk for ages so I was determined to use it and after seeing Bev from Uniko Studios latest challenge of Black and White with a splash of colour...I knew how to make it work.

Happy Birthday....Nostalgic Car

Hello Fellow Bloggers....I'm at my desk for a couple of hours of playing and the first card I was supposed to make was a 'Noel' card for our ABC challenge as we are up to N's but as you can see that's not what I made. I the latest colour combo from the DT at Fab Friday caught my eye and Sweet Stampin' have the theme 'Boys and their Toys' which got me here is my Noel card....hehe....not! I'm sure you can guess what me next card will be...anyway, hope your week is off to a great start. Thanks for popping in...

It's a spotty Christmas

 Well I saw the latest sketch from the DT at CAS(E) this Sketch and knew exactly what I was going to do with it! So I went digging through my Christmas box to find the stamps I needed and sat down to look for a colour combo to use and I found this lovely and soft colour challenge over at Tis' the Season which suited my 'different style' Christmas card and it turned out so lovely...I had to make some more!

 I made this card with a more traditional colour scheme.

And then I used some fun colours for the presents. So within minutes I had 3 more Christmas cards to add to my stash! I'm also posting my card to Cards in Envy who want Christmas in July. Well I think that's it for me always thanks for popping by and I hope you are having an enjoyable weekend.

Floral Construction Card

 Hi All, I don't really 'do' construction cards as I usually don't have a lot of time to 'fiddle' with them but after seeing one of these cards made at a friends house and as I am temporarily a lady of leisure, I thought I would give it a go. 

It's also my cousins birthday on Monday and I know she enjoys my hand made cards so I have made a concerted effort to get it finished.

 I'm in a real 'flower' zone at the moment, probably because the weather is warming up for us, not that winter is not technically finished, I think it pretty much is for us in northern Australia.

For this card, I have used the latest colour combo from the DT at colourQ which has suited my summery card. Thanks for stopping by...

Off the page...Christmas Tree

I whipped this card up late this afternoon after seeing I only had a few hours left in this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch latest challenge. When I saw the sketch, I just thought Christmas tree so that is what I went with...even if it is an understated Christmas tree...I have also used this weeks colour combo from Color Throwdown for my card which I thought suited it perfectly.

My last card for the day...I been wanting to make this card for a few days now and was just looking for a layout and colour combo to suit, so today I'm playing along with Feeling Sketchy's latest design and Stampin' Royalty's photo inspiration. I'm also smiling because I was able to use my new die for the first time. Well that's it for me, we are off tomorrow for a 4 day camping trip. Hope you all have a great weekend....


Prancing Deer

Another Christmas card and I'm noticing a bit of a theme this exactly a colour you would normally use for Christmas but I think it is working.....for this card I am playing along with Tis' the Season for the very first time and I have used the latest colour combo from DT over at Color Throwdown. Thanks for stopping by,

Limited Edition

I had a late start to my stamping day today as I had a late night out dancing with my cousin and her friends. I love the dancing but late nights are not something I usually do... Anyway, I didn't intend to make a male card today, I actually intended on doing a floral card that I have had in my mind for a couple of days now...oh well, I'll get to it eventually. ;-)
So today for my male card I have taken up the challenge from STAMPlorations and used their latest sketch and  I have used the colour combo from the team at Stampin' Royalty. Hope your weekend is off to a great start and thanks for popping in...until next time, happy stamping!

Christmas Penguin

Well this is my last card for the day...this time I have gone 'cute'...I don't really do 'cute' but Merry Monday have asked for a penguin and as he is my only penguin...cute it is. Pals Paper Arts have given me my colour combo and Freshly Made Sketches have given me the layout. So..I'm off now, I hope you have some great plans for the weekend with a bit of craft involved. TGIF!

Funky Flowers

This card makes me smile as I am a '70's' girl and I just love the funky feel of this card. I have used the latest layout from CAS(E) this Sketch, the latest colour combo from colourQ and over at Allsorts they want flowers...always a favourite! I've had this stamp set for a while and had only used a couple of the sentiments from it so it just had to be these flowers when I saw the sketch. Thanks for popping by...
