Pink or Yellow

Hi there and thanks for stopping by!

On Saturday I got to do some craft! The boys watched We Bought A Zoo and Cait and I sat at my craft table and crafted together. She made me a fairy. And this is what I made

Gavin, Hamish and Cait all prefer the Melon Mambo card, but I love the Old Olive one! 🙂 Which one do you prefer?

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂 Take care!

For Kitty

Hi there and thanks for stopping by

At the start of this year I started 8 or so new cleaning jobs, one of those clients was Kitty, a 96 year old lady! Always up for a chat, a cuppa and a full on morning tea! She lives at home, by herself, cooks all her own meals and has me in once a week to clean for her. She is such a dear treasure! 🙂

Last Wednesday, the 16th, she had a fall, she tripped on her dressing gown and landed on the corner of a door frame! It made a big mess of her head, the poor love had a big cut that was 20 cm long! She was very fortunate that she didnt pass out, as she would have bleed to death. She is a devout Catholic! So I believe, that God hasnt finished with her yet 🙂

The first card I gave her, I had to dive into my stash and choose one for her, its below, she liked it, but I always like to make cards for the person, not just grab one from my stash!

The last visit she looked very tired and fatigued and had had several fainting spells due to concussion. The Doctors are unsure when she will be able to go home. I gave her some flowers on the last visit, they were bright yellow Chrysanthamums. I wanted to make a card for her to match the flowers, my friend and Up-line Emily arrived home yesterday, from a Pacific Island cruise, thankfully! Im always running round to her house to borrow stuff! For this card I borrowed the Fancy Flower Punch from her and also the Daffodil Delight  cardstock, she saves me everytime! 🙂 Thanks Emily!

Im hoping for a speedy recovery for my lovely client Kitty!

Thanks for stopping by! Take care! Lisa 🙂

EDIT! 29 May – Kitty has been trying to get hold of me to let me know that she is out of hospital, been trying for the last 3 days 😦 She finally got hold of me today 🙂 She is happy to be home! Thanks for your thoughts! 🙂


New toys! :)

Hi there and thanks for stopping by!

Ive not had a chance to play with the Sale-A-Bration Fresh Vintage stamp set, so today I got to work and started playing!

I was inspired by a card at www.angiesmusings.com mine is more simple, but I think Mrs Rampton, Caitlin’s Teacher will love it! She loves any shade of Green! So Ive chosen my favourite shade – Old Olive. I made my own DSP, by simply stamping multiple images of the main stamp and sponged Crumb Cake around the edges. I quite like this, so will replicate some more for my stash! 🙂

Thanks for the faithful few that follow my blog! 🙂

Inky blessings!

Best made plans

Hi there and thanks for stopping by!

I have needed to create for so long, that I thought to myself, that I may as well have a party/workshop!

Unless people are coming over, I dont really CLEAN the house! I tidy the bench and I might tidy the lounge, but I dont CLEAN! 🙂 So yesterday, with a party/workshop planned, I really did get stuck in and CLEAN!!! 🙂 My hubby was so happy!

A few friends were going to come over, but my best made plans come unstuck! 1 was very sick and 1 very tired! 1 at a Church function, 1 in Alaska and 1 in the Pacific Islands!

A few weeks ago when the new mini went live, I bought the Framelits – Labels Collection. Ive been itching to have a play, but just have not had the time! Hence the lack of posts lately! So anyway that is what last night was all about!

I used the My Create Ink – SU Color Lab for some inspiration  http://www.mycreateink.com/  the colours I chose were, Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White, Marina Mist and Night of Navy. Even though I dont LOVE my card, here it is!

I will post some more soon! I promise! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! Take care! Inky blessings!

Year 2 Mother’s Day Cards

Hi there and thanks for stopping by!

Cait’s Year 2 Teacher asked me a while ago to design a card for the students’ to give to their Mums for Mother’s Day.

Ive not done much else lately, but Butterflies, so I thought I would continue the trend and take it to the classroom! 🙂

Last night I was busy cutting and sorting etc. Today I had the greatest of pleasure taking all my work to Cait’s class.

The kids had a choice of 8 colours and here are just some that caught my eye today! 🙂 I was pretty wrapt with them and Im sure their Mums are going to LOVE them too! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! Take care and Happy Stamping!

6 May – thanks for the comments Sal and Robyn! Much appreciated! Sal it is Whisper White cardstock with the flower from Elements of Style, stamped with Black Staz On and then the kids coloured them in with whatever colours they liked 🙂
