I was thrilled and hopping for joy when my husband said yes to me purchasing a Silhouette Cameo.  To fit it into my craft room I needed an extra desk and I had to have a big and I mean big clean up.  It is amazing what you can find when you have a spring clean.  I was able to have a wee play with it last night and I made this card for a friends son.

Tools - Silhouette Cameo
Dies - Lil Inker Designs Retangle Stitched Edge Dies
Card - Kraft card
Sentiment - Computer Generated

Christmas is just around the corner in fact 67 days away.  I can't believe this year is nearly over.  While I was away from the blogging world I was playing around with different computer programs.  As the theme for their current challenge is "Trim the Tree" over at LET'S CRAFT & CREATE I thought I would make a framed word art in the shape of a christmas bauble.



Today I would like to share a baby boy's card I have made to have on hand.

There are two challenges I would like to enter my card into.


Card - Bazzill Smooth
Dies - Simon Says Stamp! Tilted Banners, Papertrey Ink Sweet Baby, Lil Inker Designs Square Stitched Edge

Hi everyone.  Here I am back after several longish breaks from posting on my blog. While I have been away I have discovered Clearly Besotted Stamps.  I have tried several times over the passed years to learn how to make cards using ink stamps and I have never liked the outcome, so I had given up.  With a new frame of mind I thought I would have another go and I am loving these stamps and are having alot of fun playing.  I have just received another order today so hopefully I will be back later today to share a card I have made. Please check out Stephanie's blog.

Today in New Zealand it is not only the first day of Spring but it is also Father's Day.  Every so often I go out to the local school two of my boys attend and create something with the kids in Discovery Time. 
I was so please at the way the kids creations turned out I thought I would share them with you.  I am sure you will agree with me on this one.
Please click on this "LINK" to take you to Room 2 at Lee Stream School to check out the fabulous frames the kids made for their Dads or Grandads.

I am sorry for still being a bit M.I.A.  Been busy, busy.  Still crafting but not getting the time to post.
Today I would like to share a card I have made for a friends daugther who has recently gone through a major operation.
The image of Tatty Ted is from the Docrafts Digital Designer Especially For You double disc set.  I have added a little bit of glitter here and there.
I thought I would enter this card into two challenges running at the moment;
Let's Craft & Create - Fancy Edges
Creative Craft Cottage - Things With Bling

Thanks for stopping by.

I apologise for not posting alot this year.  With one thing and another I not sure where my time has gone.  I completely lost my want to be crafty there for a while.  Anyhow I am slowly getting back into it and have been making a few things lately.  Watch This Space.

We are half way through our fortnightly challenge over at LET'S CRAFT & CREATE.  As I was looking around the blogging world I came across these cute images from Papercraftsuprint. 

For some added inspiration I have made up this cute shaped card.

Go on over to our challenge and join in the fun.  Only one week to go. You may even be the random winner of a wee gift.

This fortnights challenge theme over at LET'S CRAFT & CREATE is "CONFETTI".  I must admit I was a bit stumped on what to do for this challenge.

I finally decided to find some spotty paper which I thought looked like confetti and I made this simple but pretty style dress shaped card.  The paper came from Pink Petticoat and I used a combination of two dress templates.  To finish it off I simply added some ribbon and a rose.

This challenge runs through to 11.00am Wednesday 20th March (NZ Time).  Check out the rest of the design teams inspiration.  Join in the fun and you could be the lucky random winner of a wee gift.

The theme for this fortnights challenge over at LET'S CRAFT & CREATE is "SWIRLS".  We are wanting to see you using some form of swirls on your projects.

This fortnight I have made a very clean and simple wedding card using a combination of an embossing folder, ribbon, rubons and a diamante buckle.

Take sometime out and join in the fun and you may even be the random winner of the wee gift.

Hi and welcome to a New Year.

The first challenge for this year is themed "ANYTHING GOES" over at Let's Craft & Create.  I just love this theme as it gives me a chance to show other crafts I like to make.  This year I have decided to get into jewellery making.  So I am going to give Chainmaille a go.  Today I would like to share with you my first ever piece of Chainmaille, a pair of Sterling Silver Infinity Love Knot earrings.
I will be posting more as I make them.  Just waiting on more supplies.
Take time and check out the other design teams creations.  This challenge runs for a fortnight so you will have plenty of time to create and share with us and you may be the lucky random winner of the wee gift.

Thanks to next time.
