Another B/day Party

Another party another birthday card. But I am on top of it this week, I have made the card today & the party is not till Sunday. I am also thinking about entering this card into Mel's latest challenge at http://www.melhanlon.blogspot.com/ , the kill two birds thing:). I love the "Daisy Dash" jumbo wheel out of the Mini Catalogue (which is only available till November 31st feel free to email me if you want to see what other great items are in this Catalogue at vickrich2@hotmail.com ).
I think adding the Stampin' Glitter to the Daisy Dash has added the texture to the card & looks very cute (photo not doing justice for this card).

Used: CS: Chocolate Chip,Whisper White, Regal Rose Ink: Regal Rose Stamp Sets: Occasional Greetings, Boho Backgrounds, Daisy Dash Wheel Other: Chocolate Chip Ribbon Vintage Brad Stampin' Glitter.

15min B/Day card

Charlotte (my daughter) has been invited to so many b/day parties in this last mth you would think I would be ready with cards of all things, but no. We got up later this morning & as we stumbled around each other to get breakfast we remembered that Charlotte had another party today. As I was wrapping the gift I started thinking that I have no card to give, I had completely forgot to make a card. Richard finished wrapping, finished dressing & started on hair as I made the card, this is my 15min b/day card for a 4yr old boy. I think it's pretty good for a quick think up. ( I also took the time to take a photo).

Used: CS: Sage Shadow, Whisper white love note Paper: Outlaw Stamps: Wanted, Occasional Greetings, Ink: Chocolate Chip

No Layers into a Layers Card

Ok I couldn't leave this as a no layer card, I have made it into a card with just one layer & think it is a huge improvement. I will have to do the same with the friendship one as well I think.

I am back

It seem forever since I last entered my blog & posted something new. My sister Michelle & her three kids where visiting us from Melbourne last week so I have been distracted from my norm. Michelle loves her scrapbooking as much as I do & over the last week we have had many attempts at scrapping, but with six kids in the house it seem less than more. With Christmas fast approaching we made the time to make a few Christmas cards. I have taken photo's of a few cards & I hope to take pic's of the rest soon & will post them when I do.

Michelle has never made cards before and I think she had fun making these, she left very happy with her new stamp sets and accessories telling me she wished she had brought more.

These cards are made from CS: River Rock,Always Artichoke,Purely Pomegranate Paper: Happy Harmony Ink: Purely Pomegranate, River Rock, Always Artichoke, More Mustard, Elegant Eggplant Stamp Sets: All About Christmas Jumbo Wheel, Crazy for Christmas Other: Double-stitched ribbon Purely Pomegranate,Clear Button, Linen Thread, Brads

This little love note set was made at the Sydney regionals, I liked it so much I wanted to make another one. This little set is easy to make & I am very happy with how it turned out.

CS: Wild Wasabi, River Rock Paper: Happy Harmony Ink: Purely Pomegranate, Basic Black Stamp Sets: Merry Merry, Season of Joy Other: Love Notes Very Vinilla, Jumbo Eyelets, Linen Thread, Mellow Moss Taffeta Ribbon.
