Birthday candle

Gotta admit, I don't think I've kept a card so simple.  Colours here don't do it justice.

Elizabeth Craft - Candles die; Presents die, Silky micro glitter
gelly pen
copic pens
Brilliance inks 


Hi di ho neighbours,
Can you believe it's already Wednesday.  What happen to the days.  Have to say we still have warm sunny days which is perfect.  Here's a card I've done trying out Elizabeth Craft silky micro glitter and normal glitter on the bear and the background.  I use Memory Box Chesapeake die for some embellishment and some washi tape as well.  I coloured his nose and muzzle with copic pens.  I should mention how I've started using paint sample cards for this card.  The range of colours is humangous.

So it's going to be entered into the challenge on

Sizzix - Bundle of Joy, Girl
Memory Box dies - Chesapeake; Mansfield frame set negative,
Elizabeth Craft - silk microfine glitter

Good morning beautiful people,
I can't believe I'm actually up getting ready to go to do a wod on a long weekend.  Must be short a few sausages in the barbie.  So hopeful I get this card into a few challenges this morning since the phone took so long to send to the home comp.  ANZAC is just around the corner and I had this wonderful die.  I hope this fits into the requirements needed on Freshly Made???  Opps another boo boo I think, just realized that Stuck on Sketches might want a machine die cut, I'm sure they'll let me know.
Its going into the challenges on  just realized that I've already got one in on this.  I like this one better.

I'm on a roll...
Atm my poor brain is obessed with dies and I love cutting the shapes out.  My poor poor cricut is not being put to good use.  Some times it's just so easy to get the Cuttlebug and cut the shapes out.  Not sure about the colours on this card.  She'll be going into the challenge on

Boy's toys b'day

Hey everyone,
Hope you all have been keeping well.  It's been a hectic couple of weeks this ends.  Craft shows, cooking demos and exercising.  It's been crazy.  Lately my body feels like it's been hit by a mack truck from lifting so much heavy weights.  Apart from that the creative juices has been leeched out of the body as well.

I've been seeing all the fantastic challenges I've been meaning to do, but alas I keep missing the cut off date.  So hopefully this one might just make it into the challenge on

Memory Box die - Excavator
Elizabeth Craft die - Happy Birthday

Mum's Birthday

Hey everyone,

Sorry for the lack of posts lately.  Been busy with my various work - cooking demos and craft shows.  On top of that I've added another day of Crossfit into the mix, as they say no rest for the wicked.  I've managed to get my hands on some of the new Elizabeth Craft dies designed by Karen Burniston.  They are so cool.  On top of that I got to meet the lady behind the company Els herself and have a photo with her for the .  She had so many wonderful sample cards she had displayed.  Wow....

I've made this card for my mother's birthday.  I've used Fancy That dies for the flowers and leaves as well as mum; Memory box die - Happy Birthday; Elizabeth  Craft dies - Accordion oval card.  Glitter, foil and double sided cardstock was used.  Tattered Angel's glimmer mist was used on the flowers.

Entering into the challenge over on  Buttons and Rhinestones (Any type of Bling will work)
