Happy 10th Birthday Keili

Hi there and thanks for stopping by!

Today is Miss Keili (10) and Master Hamish (4), (our neighbours) combined birthday party.

This is the card that I gave Keili. I used Gorgeous Grunge.

I chose a card for Hamish, from my stash, of which I forgot to take a photo.

The photo is of my Cait and Keili taken yesterday. They are like 2 peas in a pod!

When we moved here 9 months ago, (today!) from a street full of kids to a new estate, our only hope would be that the kids would make some new friends. And they have! ๐Ÿ™‚ Which is so nice! If Cait cant be found at home, she will be at their place!





For the gorgeous Marci

Hi there and thanks for stopping by

Marci is my photographer friend, whom my kids modeled for last year and whom I modeled for this year.

Recently it was my friend Janet’s 40th birthday, we had a girls night out, I wanted to wear something special for the occasion, as I hardly ever go out. I think the last time I went out for such a big occasion was my own 30th (9 years ago), very sad I know. Anyway, I had a brain wave, MARCI! ๐Ÿ™‚ I text her and she was ever so happy to loan me about 10 dresses and said wear whatever you like! It was so much fun, I got the whole family involved in picking the dress!

So anyway – getting back to the card – this is a thankyou card for Marci, in allowing me to borrow her clothes. She is just so lovely, generous and gorgeous! ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope she likes it, I go to visit her tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

Her favourite colours are White, Natural linen shades, Sea Blue and Yellow.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I truly appreciate it.

Gorgeous Grunge

Hi there and thanks for stopping by!

There are a number of awesome trainers at the gym I go to, this card is for Anneka, one of my favourites. Its her birthday tomorrow, but as I have to work, I will miss her classes, so this will have to go to her tonight after Body Combat.

She always wears Purple nail polish – so Im hoping she likes Purple! ๐Ÿ™‚

I made 3 cards and Gavin and I chose this one, he decided chocolates over flowers. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for stopping by! ๐Ÿ™‚

Take care




Orange, Blue and Black colour combo

Hi there and thanks for stopping by.

It was the Lovely Lorraine’s birthday on Tuesday, Id asked her what her favourite colour combo was and she told me Orange, Blue and Black and I said, perhaps colours that co-ordinated. She replied they do! That was a great surprise! LOL!

This is what I made this morning, before dropping the kids off to school and going out for lunch with the Lovely one. Its not quite what I had in mind. I inked up Gorgeous Grunge for the first time. And used my Chevron embossing folder for the first time too! ๐Ÿ™‚ Special!

We had a nice lunch out, with some other lovely ladies, from Church! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for stopping by!

Will be back soon. Im husbandless due to work this weekend, so more than likely will be getting my craft on ๐Ÿ˜‰

Baby Joseph


Hi there and thanks for stopping by!

A few weeks ago Peggy had her baby shower, 3 days later and a month early she had baby Joseph! ๐Ÿ™‚

This is the card Ive made them, I used Pennant Party, for the first time and used Pacific Point, Bashful Blue, Baja Breeze and Marina Mist. The card is not quite what I envisioned, but Im fairly happy with the outcome! Except as you will be able to see I used too much Crystal Effects. Oh well, Peggy and Mena wont mind in the slightest!

Thanks for stopping by!
