Tuesday Pinterest Challenge

Tia and Anne started up a Challenge for those of us that are hooked on Pinterest. We have to make something that we have seen on Pinterest and then post a pic of it onto the FB CA page.
Oh my goodness so many projects and so little time - its a big decision on what to do... I decided to go with this card as I didn't have much time.

Mine is not as good as the original but at least I now have another card made for my Birthday box.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting.

A Rose by any other name

On Monday night we had the talented Deb Speijers as a Guest teacher for the Crafters Anonymous Monday night class. She taught us this beautiful flower. I nearly got RSI with all the punching and sponging, lol but it was alot of fun and the flower is HUGE! For some reason I just made the flower and didn't even think to put it onto a box/container... Duh!!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting.

Finally a Wedding Layout

After 20 months of marriage I have finally done a scrapbook layout of my youngest son's wedding. I know.... how bad is that????
Any who, there was a challenge over at Scappit on FB to do a page with stamping. I knew that I wanted to do one of my fav photos of Scott and Alesha but after faffing around for a few hours with one idea I decided that I would mimmick their wedding invite. "Voila" and in an hour it was done... Lots of versamark and silver embossing powder involved but I must say I am pretty pleased with the end result.

It's beer now Mike...!!

Here's a card I made for an old mate who is going through tough times at the moment. I have told him when he gets better that I want to have a drink with him for old times sakes. When we were very young (I was 18 months approx and Mike 2 1/2 years) my parents went to Mike's parents for a Christmas do and apparently we disappeared and when they found us we were a bit tiddly from drinking miniature bottles of spirits..... I can still remember being behind the couch and the china cabinet that housed the little bottles!!!

I found this card on that fabulous site Pinterest (lol). I also entered it into Crafters Anonymous Facebook Tuesday Pinterest Challenge started by Tia and Anne. Roll on next Tuesday!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting.

3 Panel Card

We had another great class last night at Crafters Anonymous. It was taken by the lovely Julia and we made a 3 panel lace up card. Very groovy - reminds me of a corset...
Here's my take on it.

Swinging Butterflies..

Last Monday was my night to take the online class for Crafters Anonyous. A few months ago I had seen this style of card somewhere in blogland and so I made one for a swap that I was involved in. I really enjoyed making it so I decided to recreate it for my class.

Gosh I love the butterfly dies....

Speaking of butterflies - the very talented Tia has given my blog a makeover. I just love it - its got bling and butterflies and its purple!!! If you are wanting a makeover just click onto the button at the top of my posts and flick her an email.
