This is the last for today, I have had such a great day at finishing all the cards that I have started and being time challenged I haven't been able to finish until today, it's a shame I have to work tomorrow :( .
This is for another challenge this time over at Paper Take where you can pick your own colour combo. Sorry the photo is a little dark still using Possum's camera.
I have picked a maroon card (from my stash) and a very dark blue/green from the Bazzill range called Bahama. I have coloured the awesome Tilda in water coloured pencils added a bit of Kaiser craft pearl chalks, pale blue, to get rid of the stark white background and added a Prima flower with a Kaiser craft Rhinestone to give it some Bling.
Thanks again for stopping by.

Creative Card Crew #20 Polka Dots

Told ya I would be back and I hoping I will get one more card done today before tea needs cooking.
This one is for the challenge over at The Creative Card Crew where the theme is Polka dots.
I have used another one of my Tilda stamps, I have an obsession with her, coloured here my water coloured pencils and my Tom Bow pens. The dotty paper is from The Glitter stack, yep it has glitter in it, the pink card is a Bazzill card called 'Bubble Gum'. The little brass flower charm is by Francheville, the ribbon by Dashes, Dots and Checks.
O.K so I'm off again maybe back later with another finished card. Thanks for stopping by.

A Spoon full of sugar # 61 Swirls

Well Howdy Ladies, (oh and men)
Hope we are all fine and dandy and the sun is shining brightly where ever you may be.
Well it has been an extremely busy week I'm really enjoying my new job. Don't worry Heidi I have kept away from those mouth watering cakes, it's just the pizza's that are jumping out at me saying "eat me, eat me".......lol.
Anyways, this is my entry for the super challenge over at A Spoon Full of Sugar. The theme this week is Swirls.
I have used some more new paper, this one is by Alison Ellis titled 'Her Birthday Swirls' it has the most beautiful glittered swirls on it, and I just love pink and lime together. I have also used a lime and pink ribbon that is made by Creation Station (can't believe how well this matches the paper).
My sweet little Tilda is coloured with my fav. water coloured pencils with some stickles on her wings to add a little sparkle.
The sentiment is from my stash as well as the card stock. The rhinestones are by Kaiser craft.
Well I'm off to finish another card for another challenge, see you (type you) in a bit.

A Few Cards

Hello there all you lovely people of Blog land,
All the kiddies are back to school today and it is so quiet in the house it's a little lonely :( .
I'm off to work shortly, I have a new job working in a friends Cafe'/bakery for a few hours today and Friday so I thought I would pop these cards onto my blog before I left. These aren't for any challenges I fell in love with this paper and just brought it, as you do. In my excitement in using this paper I have cut off the makers name and forgot to keep it, sorry. It's just gorgeous it has glitter weaved all though the rose pattern, trust me it's yummo.
I have used leather textured coffee coloured card stock from my stash (on both cards) and the gold letters are also from my stash. On the wedding card I have given it an acetate cover which I then decorated with some glittered hearts. I also popped a few on the inside, These were done using a craft punch, jac paper and Jones Tones glitter. I have keep them both simple so the rose paper stands out. Oops almost forgot the ribbon is by Wrights and has a shimmer effect to itand the rhinestones by Kaisercraft.
Well, it's that time I'm off to work keep you fingers crossed for me.
Bye for now

One more for today

OOPS! I found this photo in the millions that we took and it would have to be one of my favorites. This is of my babies sitting on the barrier about half way to the top of Red Bluff. AAHHHH don't they look like angels.
Bye for now

We are home

Hi Everyone,
As you can see I'm back from Kalbarri and gosh what a great time we had. It only rained a few days but we still got out and about. The kids had a blast with fishing, swimming ( to cold for me), kicking the footy and playing in the playground. Even though we had a fab time it is nice to be home it's just a shame that a truck load of washing followed us.
I haven't had a chance to do any cards yet, thanks to the washing, but I thought I would share a few happy snaps with you.
The first couple of photo's are of the views from the top of Red Bluff. Once at the top of the cliff you can see for miles and miles. The waves were enormous the day we went it was truly amazing. You can also see the whole town of Kalbarri at the top. We were so high it felt like you could touch the clouds.
The next photo is of my kiddies at Pot Alley, this is also part of the Kalbarri coast line.
The last photo is of the house we stayed at. It had a massive back yard and heaps of room on the inside, the best part was that it took us a 2 minute stroll to get to the beach. Each morning we would wake up to the sound of the waves hitting the beach, it was so lovely. I hope you enjoy looking at them. I will bore you with a few more tomorrow. I'm having a few problems uploading them, I had to use my daughters camera seeing mine decided to stop working day 2 of our holiday, and now Leigh-Annes camera just doesn't want to load them into my computer. I dunno modern technology tutt tutt.
Enjoy your day people and hopefully tomorrow I can finish the washing and pop by to see what you have all been up to.
Stay safe
