Caz's 40th Birthday Card

Good Morning All

Well another wet and rainy day here in Sunny Queensland lols! So what better to do than share another card creation? This was my first attempt a double easel card. I made it especially for my lil sis, Carolyn aka Caz. She celebrated her 40th a few days ago and we weren't able to go down to help her celebrate so I wanted an extra special card to send. This is what I came up with:



So goodbye for today. Off to my craft desk to work on some new cards. I got some new cricut cartridges this week so I can't wait to test some of them out!

Have a great day friends and as always HAPPY CRAFTING!

60th Wedding Anniversary Card





One last post for the day. Just got my camera out to photograph my latest Twisted Sketches card and realised I hadn't taken any photographs of my tri-fold easel card that I had finished last week and I just wanted to share it with you all. This is the first time I have made a tri-folding easel card and I was so happy with how it all came together. I just hope my cousins in America like it as well. Thanks for stopping by everyone.

Ok I Lied.....



Sorry ladies I just stumbled over ONE more card (well two actually) that I wanted to share. These two cards were "make & takes" from the Stamp It stall at a recent small craft show that came to Brisbane. It was nice playing with some differnt techniques. One card was made by my dd, Nicayla. Can you guess which one? Thanks for stopping by my blog. Happy scrapping!

Valentine's Day



This card was again made for my DH for Valentine's Day. We had to celebrate a little late this year as Ken was away at work but I thoroughly enjoyed making this card for him. A simple but I think stylish card.

Hubby's Birthday Card





Hello me again!

I can't believe I am so far behind in uploading these cards.... this was was a twisted easel card with a small difference! Hope you all like it. Can't wait to see what you might create using the idea. I can't wait to do another one just a tad more girly. I think with loads of flowers, colour & bling it will look so pretty! This card was made for my DH who also had a birthday in the past month.

Pop's 70th Birthday


Hello Everyone

Sorry I have been absent again for so long. Real life has been total chaos in our lives the past 6 weeks! My hubby hasn't been well, my poor dd has reflux (off to see a specialist next week) and now the soccer season has started my ds has a badly sprained ankle! Plus school days & afternoons has been non stop soccer training, gymnastics training and indoor soccer matches! Hardly a minute to catch my breathe.

Anyway I wanted to share a few cards I have made over the past month. Firstly this one (inspired by my lil sis Caz) was made for our adopted Pop's 70th birthday.




Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs
