I am still here

Hi all I am sorry for my absence I know it has been a long time in between post I hope to be back posting soon.. I have been flat out with SU! demo's & classes plus trying to get my Personal Training business (Fitalicious) up & running, whilst keeping up with family commitments so playing time has been few and far between for me.. We have also had a sick puppy dog over the last couple of mths & last Wednesday we had to say good-bye to our beautiful boy Jet he was only 6yrs & to young:(
So I just wanted to drop in to let you know that I am still here & hope to be back in the swing of things soon. I hope everyone is well & I look forward to have a blog surf tomorrow..
Cheers for now Vicki

Good Morning

I hope everyone is having a good start to the week..
I have two projects I have made, to show today. These are not made for challenges, just made for fun & because I love the images..
Last week I went blog looking at all my usual haunts & came across a digi image fromKennyK on Cheryl's blog (My Cardmaking Haven). I loved what Cheryl had made I purchased a few & cased her Allura Von D card, I hope that is ok Cheryl:)

Project #1
We had a 40th Birthday this weekend for one of my husbands work colleague & I made a Birthday tag with the cased Allura Von D image..

Card #2
I had a card making day yesterday for the girls & being the host a didn't seem to get much done, so I kept it simple & had a go at a ATC card that seem to be getting around the blog world a couple of mths ago ( I am a bit behind), so here is my attempt & other KennyK image All That..

Bookmarks

Hi I am back today with some more bookmarks I have made.. I have become a bit addicted to making these little bookmarks.. Today I have two to show I am working on two more, that will be tonight while watching Packed to the Rafters:)
I have made these using silver bookmarks I brought from ebay awhile ago, when I had a plan to make them for my Twilight books, my sister Michelle is also waiting on hers to be made, (sorry Shell side tracked)...The beads are a mix of mine & a friend Julie we have been having fun trying to look like we have some idea of what we are doing.. I love the Tinkerbell charms I think they are great for little girls and getting them to read..
I hope you are all having a good day...

Challenge card

Hi I am back with another challenge card this card is entered in
Lil Lotita Boutique Challenge Inspiration Challenge
The Wild Flower Patch Lace & Sparkle #24




I have paperpieced Lilith with SU! DSP for something different.. SU! ribbon & button's.
My friend Tamie gave me the Black Lace used for the base of the card she has stiffen the lace so it holds to the cardstock or you can cut out the flowers so many ways to use it. I don't know how Tamie has done it, but if you want to know email me & I will ask her for you, the photo does not do Justice to this card & the Black Lace.
This is is a 50's Lilith stamp from the Lil Lotita Boutique collection..
Coloured with Copic's..

Bookmarks


Bookmarks.. After my sister saw my daughter Michaela's bookmark here on my blog, a request was put in for one of her own & one for her daughter as she knew that's where hers would end up if I didn't...
Deanna having two daughters that means three bookmarks.I have finished two of three, yours will be made on the weekend I hope Em...
So the one with Betty is for my sister Deanna & Tinkabell is for Katelin.
Deanna's has hanging red & black beads, this is one of my first attempts I will post more soon I am going to try some Twilight inspired ones. Who knew beads would be so fun to make.. I have them hanging on every thing now from my phone, bags, wallet, & my daughter who started me on them also has them attached to everything, as she was the one who got me started..

Lilith Challenge Card



Hi I am entering another Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge. This week is Challenge #3
No Designer Paper Make Your Own.
I wanted to enter this one as this is a challenge I have never attempted before..
To make my DP I have use tissue paper and stamped Whisper White CS, then covered the CS with the tissue paper to give it a soft look, inked the edges as I do & a bit of tread to finish it off.
This is my own DP:)
I have used Lilith again because she is the only stamp I have at the moment & because why wouldn't you she is just gorgeous. I have added a satin ribbon to some lace & sewed it in as well.
Coloured white heart pin's with a copic maker.

A Masqueradea Party

My oldest Michaela has a Masquerade party tonight.. We brought the Mask from the Riot craft shop & I have painted it with Making Memories red paint & Glimmer Mist (Peppermint Stick) which has given it a real shimmer but the photo is not picking it up.. I have used rub-ons on the side (old Basic Gray) and Feathers I picked up from the local scrap shop.. The Mask is held on by adhesive, we took the ugly elastic off & I sent her off with the roll & a pair of scissors..
I have made a card to match Michaela's mask to keep with the theme of the party I hope her friend likes it all I know Michaela did..
I was still making the card as they where walking out the door to go so I didn't get a photo of Michaela but I will when she gets home will post it tomorrow...
this is mine & this is the one Ethan (7yrs) Made for her.

Challenge card

I had some unexpected spare time today, so I put it to good use (no didnt do house work)I finished a card that I started yesterday, to enter into this weeks
Welcome to Colour Create challenge.. For this challenge the colours are Mint, Chocolate & Cream. Chocolate wasn't a problem for me but the mint was a huge challenge as this is not a colour I would buy or use very often & I didn't think about this yesterday when I started colouring my image from the Greeting Farm TT-Izzy.
I still cant seem to get my skin right, one day I will get it. I do tend to learn by repetition:)
The stiching is all done by hand with cotton thread, I love sewing on my scrapbook pages so why not bring that to cards.
Thank you for stopping by...

Used: Paper Webster's pages Lullaby Lane..
SU! Chocolate Chip Sage Shadow ( which is the closest I could get to mint). Button.
Colouring Copic's
Other are all random's from my 6yr stash..
