Roses Challenge No. 14


I received the most beautiful cards from the Roses, for my birthday, you are all truly amazing card makers! so a BIG thank you. I spent my birthday, with my two beautiful daughters, adorable mother, and two gorgeous grandsons, then spent the evening with my buddy, Sue 'Rose'.

Now, it's that time of the month to reveal our 'Roses' Challenge, and this month was hosted by Mary Anne Rose, and as spring is heading there way, on the other side of the planet (LOL), the theme was 'Spring'. I used my flower punch, and punched out lots of flowers from my scrap bin, put a sprinkle in the centre of each flower, sentiment is Gina K, added a ribbon and bow, and yes there is the butterfly... I'm wearing this punch out!!
Now if you have time go check out the talented Roses.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Thanks for taking the time to visit and leave a comment, very much appreciated.

Hats Off

Good Morning/Evening,

It's only a week to go before we commence filming a new television drama series 'Wild Boys', which is a period western. Wow, its been really busy the last month, as all the cast have been in full horse training, just learning to stay on a horse, slowly into a trot, now a gallop!... they are all doing extremely well. As well as them, we have had full time stunt training, as the hero cast won't be doing there own stunts, so they have to be doubled.... what a pain this is for costume, as they have to make doubles of everything!, I think it will be a very successful show..

When I finished making this card I was in two minds weather to put happy birthday, or just leave it? ... what do you think... I used american craft card, then embossed with swiss dots, my dp is scraps from my craft bin, and the image is The Greeting Farm - Hats Off, coloured with copics, and the flower is from Joans Garden, Heartfelt creations, with a brad in the centre.

Ok better run... enjoy the week.

Elizabeth Bell - Little Best Friends

Hi blogging buddies,

Hope your enjoying the weekend, such a gorgeous day today in Sydney. I went and had a quick visit at the heritage market at the local RSL, it wasn't overly crowed, but quite a few people, had a little wonder around, and came across a stand with hand made cards. They were ok, but the ones I see around blog land have so much more detail.

Ok, onto my card, soon as I saw this digi image from Elisabeth Bell - Little Best Friends, I put it in the shopping basket straight away, I just love this cute little image, that I'm made two cards.

Hope you like em!

Until next time!

Fussy & Fancy

Quick post today, want to get to work early, so I can leave early, and call into see my father, as its his birthday!.... The challenge this week at Fussy & Fancy, is they would like to see paper piecing and embossing. I've created this quilted card, punched out 3o, 3/4" squares, once arranged, I glued into place, then put through one of my cuttlebug embossing folders, humm .... sounds easy, to be quite honest, its very fiddly.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!
