1 Week to go.

Hi there.  Sneaking in a bit of craft time lately has been a bit difficult.  We are on the move in 1 week and 1 day today so I have been packing, organising and cleaning to get ready to go.  We are off to my beloved sisters house for an unknown length of time while we (not so) patiently wait for our home to be built.  The final decisions have been made this week in regards to finishes in the kitchen and bathroom and we are right on budget for a few extras we wanted.  We even have a little to play with in case anything goes wrong (god forbid) so crafting out of 2 boxes of stuff (that are overflowing out of those 3 boxes) has been a challenge and not being able to get to alot of my supplies has been difficult.  Megan has allowed me to set up camp in her back room with all my things so at least I can still do something, I won't have everything but I'll have my 2 boxes and some extra papers that are over there already.  And my beloved Cuttlebug! 

I wanted to share some pics today not only of a card I made but of my gorgeous babies, Axel and Peppa after they came back from the groomers yesterday.  It was Peppa's first shave and she was very good.

This is Peppa. She is 7 months old and a little sweetheart. We can finally see her lovely face.....after looking like this...

And this is Axel, 8 months old with his trendy scarf on which was still in place when I got home from work this morning at 12.00am. 
And he started like this....

See the spikes on his nose, yes well that's mummy's attempt at grooming so he could and that's why I pay the money to get them groomed.  
So here is my card I made today.  Using CC Designs Fiona and a sentiment from the Tags It Set, some random flowers from BIG W I bought years ago (see i do use everything eventually), papercraft patterned paper, and some ribbon and brad I also bought years ago from Spotlight.  Coloured with copics and a little glossy accent to highlight the tag and her headband.  I think she's adorable and i enjoyed colouring her in.
I am going to try and get some more made as I have some images coloured already so stay tuned and hopefully I can get those done today some time.

Bye for now xx

Challenge busy...

Hi there.

Well it looks like i'm hooked, maybe not yet but's another challenge I have entered into over at Club Anya and Friends. Go on over and check it out. They are running a sketch challenge this week with the sketch below:

So I thought with all my treasure from the Craft Expo I would use a few things to help me with this challenge. 

I kept it nice and simple as I think Miss Anya here is rather classy and I didn't want to take the focus away from here.  A bit of roughened edges as a contrast and voila! Hope you like it xoxoxo

Bizzy Becs Colour Challenge

After putting in an order today with Bec I decided that YES it was about time I got into these challenges.  So for my very first challenge EVA, I have created the following card.  Using Nora on a swing from CC Designs , copics, Me and My Big Ideas paper, Kaszazz ribbon, punches, brad and rhinestones, and a few flowers from my stash.  Here are the colours....due to my limited copics I had to do a bit of improv. with piecing but she came out ok.

Now unfortunately it's off to work, playtimes go too fast.

About Me

My photo
Hello and welcome to my work in progress....I am a mum of two very outgoing children who keep me on my feet all day. A wife to a man who works hard for our family and doesn't like my craft at all (lol) and a dedicated yet part time Admin Assistant for a charity organisation. I have a love for motorbike riding as well as craft and love to shop - who doesn't right?! Back onto craft - craft in general has been a BIG part of my life for so many years I couldn't possibly tell you when it all first started. Around 2008 I fell in love with Papercrafting, of all forms, off the page, scrapbooking and card making and stamping (my fave). Going from just fun to running my own party plan business with Kaszazz and then back to "just for fun". I hope you enjoy the journey with me as I experiment with techniques, colours and product and learn with me also as I inevitably make mistakes and disasters....all in good fun. Enjoy!!
