Cupcake card.

Sorry for not having posted for a while. My gorgeous step daughters are here for 2 weeks and I've been busy entertaining them. Now that they're just about to go home I thought I'd start posting a few different cards that I've made.

 DSD10 and I have been busy making cards most nights, I can't show her's, as I was extremely silly and forgot to take photo's of her.. OOppppss. Next time.

This however is one that I managed to get made up the first night that they were here. I love the way it came together, and think I might have a go at doing it again but in brighter colours this time round.

An up close pic of the card.. Excuse my watercolouring skills, I'm still to master those.

And the finished product.

Christmas Challenge - I forget what we are up to


Well here I am.. I'm about 1/2 way through my calendar template that I'm making, so thought that I would show you each month - month by month over the next few days!!!
Today is January - not really much else to say about it. I had put this one up in the past, but wasn't 100% happy with it, so re did it. This time round I'm much happier..

Christmas Tags!!!

This post is really just an update on the tags that I was making earlier. As you can see I've made a few extra designs, and might even make 1 more up, if I can think of something else to do.

 Snow Man/Penguin Christmas Tags

Joy/Flower Christmas Tags

And the Christmas Tree Tags again. 

All 3 are going to be a part of a Christmas Set that I am going to be giving out as presents.

Christmas Present!!!

This is a Christmas present that I am sending O/S so have to get in quick and get it made up and sent before Sea Mail closes on at the end of the month. AArrgghh I guess that means that I'd better get on with the Calendars as 3 of them are being sent O/S. But back to this present, I've made little gift tags, I made 4 each of 4 different designs. I used the Cute and Curly bundle, Punch and Stamps for this one. I LOVE the way the tags turned out, and might even use the same design again here for a few presents, as they're not just Christmas tags.
I've got a Merry Christmas one, a Thankyou tag, a Best Wishes, and a just for you tag. So hopefully they go down well. And then I've just made a nice little box to put them all in.

The box with the 4 tags stuck on top

The Thank you tags

The Best Wishes tags

The Merry Christmas Tags

And finally the Just for you tags.

And just to finish off a pic of the box all wrapped up and ready to go.

Happy Fathers Day!!!

Happy Fathers Day to my wonderful Husband. The lucky duck is having 2 Father's Day's as per usual. Today and then again in 2 weeks time when his daughter's arrive from Brissie. So today we are just doing something very small and non eventful really. We did the whole breaky in bed, and presents, but his MAJOR pressie he won't get until the girls are here.

I made his Father's Day card, and this is how it turned out. Wasn't quite what I wanted, as I wanted to put pictures of the kids on the inside flaps, but I didn't make them quite big enough, so ended up cutting out the first letter of each of the kids names, sponging them in the colours and then sticking them on. I'm still happy with the way they turned out.
