Monster Birthday Card

Following on from my last post..

James had his birthday in Melbourne and he had been eyeing this stamp set off for a while in the Catalogue, so while I had some spare $$ I bought it knowing that it would make his day seeing a birthday card for him with these images on them.

He aboslutely LOVED his birthday card, and said it was the best one that he received. Gotta love 6 year olds.

I made the card using the colours of his Favourite Football Team (Adelaide Crows - Red, Blue, Yellow) and threw in some purple just to finish it off.

Owl Thank you Cards

While I was in Melbourne for my Son's surgery I had plenty of time to sit and craft.

Because he was having a small Birthday Party on one of the weekends with some people that we had never met (All from a parenting website whom I have known for about 7 years) I felt the need to make up little Thank you Cards to put inside the kids party boxes.

This is what I came up with, again I've used the Owl, I LOVE this little stamp set.

Sorry they're not very clear... I only had my mobile on me that day and that was the best I could get. I did blue for the boys, and pink for the girls. They all loved them, and James had a WONDERFUL birthday party with some lovely new friends.

Card Organizer Revisited.

Today I had a day where I could just sit and play all day. I decided to make today a day of finishing off projects that I'd started but never finished. Well this Card Organizer was one of those things.

Do you remember this post back in Jan of this year, I made it up for a friend. Well I really wanted one for myself as well, and started making it, and then of course life got too hectic for me to spend any real time in here finishing it off. So TODAY was that day. I'm quite pleased with the way it's turned out.

10 years today...

I know it's not a crafty entry but I just wanted to wish my darling Husband


I can't believe that we have been together for 10 years today.. Where have those years gone. We've had a LOT of up's and down's as most couples do, but no matter what we have stuck by each other to get to where we are today.. I know this past year has been HELL on both of us with what we have been through with James, but we WILL come out on top and make at least another 10 years..

Non traditional Christmas Card

New Stampin' Up 2011-2012 Catalogue goes live today!! Whooo hooo!! There is soo much in there that I want to get my hot little hands on...

So with the new Catalogue due out, I decided to sit down and try my hand at a Christmas Card with Non traditonal colours. Not just for something different, but because we have a few friends who don't celebrate Christmas.

So this card is one that I can send, without it having to have Christmas sayings on it.

It also uses the new Just eat Cake DSP from the brand new Stampin Up! Catalogue, and the new Tags till Christmas Stamp set.
