Excavator B'day

Good morning one and all,
I think it's a start to a beautiful day.  The weather temp outside is mild and cool.  The sun is slowly peaking out from the clouds.  Been up before the birds this morning, don't ask me why.  So just sitting here watching the Crossfit finals happening in the US.  Some super fit and strong ppl.
Here's one card nearly made from purely paint samples I've collected.  They do have a lovely glossy finish to it.  Used some shimmer power and on the lettering. Going into the challenges

Lavendar b'day

Morning one and all,
A new start to the week.  My o my - how time flies.
Here's a card I've put together by trying to get more creative with all the stuff I don't use.  I'm sure many of you have the same problem.  You find stuff that's been hidden in the back of the drawer and it seems like Christmas when you re-discover it. - - flowers

Morning one and all,
This weekend has been lots of viewing on the Crossfit reginonal finals all over the world watching all these super fit men and women do their workouts.

Well this card came together nicely and fits into a few on the challenges atm.  We've been having to go to the hardware storeBunnings to get stuff for painting the house and I've rediscover paint samples.  Lol so you can guess what happened.  They have a million colours to choose from and I've come across some beautiful metalic paint sample as well.  So this card has some of the samples used for die cuts. Have to admit putting this card was just a fluke when I had the various die cuts lying around on the craft table. going into  #236 - Lace

Hi everyone,
On the weekend I got to do a class doing this lovely shadow box.  We were lucky to have the owner herself Sophie teach the class.  We got to use the beautiful die cuts from her company called Scrapmats.  It was a lovely hr of just sitting there and putting the box together making it more our own.  The word Paris and Eiffel Tower is hidden behind the mannequin.  So this is going into the challenge on

Scrapmatts - Shadow box, wooden die cuts
Brilliance inks
Gelly roll stardust pen
Chevron craft straw
Stamens and rose

Angus' Happy Mother's Day Card

I've been asked by a mate to make a card for his mum.  Lol last year's card considered ok so I thought I'd better pull my socks up and try harder this year.  So a little I've rolled some flowers, die cut a teapot and cup to jazz it up.
Going into the challenge on
