I'm Still Here...

Yes, you would not know it to look at my blog, but I'm still here...life has been very busy for me, but I still find time to create whenever I can, I just don't have the time to add the proof to my blog LOL...
I just thought I'd pop in let you know that CRAFT QUEEN has a brand new look, as well as some new stock!!!!     Check it out HERE   and then go HERE and leave a comment to be in the running to win some great crafty goodies  (sorry, only open to Australian residents)
Best of luck : )

Happy Birthday, Simon Says Challenge Blog

I had a bit of time this morning, seeing as I woke up "early" (end of daylight saving!!) so I checked out a few of the challenge blogs I like to participate in (though I haven't had much time to lately) and the first one I came across was the "Simon Says Challenge Blog"...They are celebrating their 4th year, so their current challenge ties in quite nicely, it is "Happy Birthday"
And here is my card, using a Penny Black stamp (main image), a Darkroom Door stamp set (sentiment), Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils, a black fineliner(for the hand-drawn frame), Archival ink (jet black) and some Prima pp.

If you get a chance to play along have a look HERE, there are some great prizes up for grabs...
Until next time, thanks for visiting and have a great Sunday  : )

Found Cards

Here are a couple of cards I've just come across in my computer...they were made for CRAFT QUEEN, using lots of different products from the CRAFT QUEEN site.


As you can see, a good variety, and all of them using Darkroom Door's Background stamps...
While I'm on the subject of Darkroom Door stamps...a little while back I was one of the lucky winners of a giveaway over at Rachel's blog, and got to pick a set of stamps of my choice, I have to admit it was so hard to choose (I want them ALL) but I decided on the Carved Flowers set as I had already picked up a couple of the other sets at the last craft show...so Thank you Rachel for picking me as one of the winners, I love the images and products you create for us to play with...
Well, that's it for me on this, the first day of the month, happy April Fool's Day : )

Hello There...

Wow, I can't believe March is almost over!!!     It seems to be getting harder and harder to make time to post in my little blog, but I do have some photos to share...

The above are part of a card kit from CRAFT QUEEN, and you can find it HERE...

And the above 2 cards were made using some of the wonderfully versatile washi tape that Nicole has available online... Check out some of the brand new designs HERE.

And here are some tags I also made for CRAFT QUEEN...

I hope you are well in your corner of the world...until your next visit, enjoy your time : )

Away With The Fairies...

I have been away from my computer quite a lot lately, just too busy with other things, but I have been busy creating samples for Nicole (CRAFT QUEEN)  and here is a sneak-peek:

If you get a chance to go to the show here in Melbourne, you'll be able to see them in real life : )
I've made a few cards as well as some fun tags, all using gorgeous new embellishments from CRAFT QUEEN, including some fab new washi tapes, new background stamps, and some fun metallic look flowers...
And, did you know CRAFT QUEEN is one of the main sponsors of this year's classes?    Have a look HERE for all the information about the show, and HERE for some great classes available (CRAFT QUEEN sponsored classes are being run in rooms 1 and 2, and you need to hurry to book before all spots are gone!!!)
I'll be going to the show on Sunday, and I plan to pick up some new DARKROOM DOOR stamps as well as some other new goodies...I hope to see you there : )

Happy New Year!!!!!!

   2012 has been a very busy year for me, and I'm still on catch-up mode!   But I promised myself I would start the New Year with a tidy crafting space, and I'm half way there...I'm finding treasures and left-overs, new toys and trusty friends that I had forgotten I had!!!      I'm also putting a few bits and pieces aside for the local primary school (thanks to my darling daughter for the idea)
Anyhow, I also promised myself I would try to be a lot more creative this year, and to that effect I have joined in Nathalie's Studio Creative Jumpstart 2013, just finished watching the very first video, and I can't wait to try the fabulous technique, so, if you are looking for a jumpstart to your creativity, have a look HERE           In the meantime, here's a little something I prepared earlier:

There's something else which goes in the middle of the tags, but I will share those in my next post ; )
I hope that wherever you are in this great big world of ours, you have welcomed 2013 with open arms, and surrounded by loved ones...I wish you a very happy, healthy, and creative New Year...Thanks for stopping by  : )
