Happy Birthday to me!

Hi Gals,
So sorry I haven't been around still trying to get onto a new routine with the new job, which I might add I'm loving.
Guess who got a new camera for their Birthday, yep, ME! I got spoilt rotton and had a awesome day. I was woken up by my babies who brought me a new camera, a camera case and some P.J's. Then it was off to school for them and off to work for an hour for me.
After I had finished deliverying my catalogues my mum and a dear friend, Simone took me to the pub for lunch then it was off to bingo. I had a small win, $30.00, but a win is a win no matter how little.
I have been itching to do a challenge so I can use my new camera and here it is. This is for the challenge over at One stop craft challenge where you have to use die cuts.
I have used Dark Orange Dream by ColorMates the patterned paper is by Basic Grey titled Sugared luscious all the rest of the card is from my stash. I have used my cuttlebug and my nesties for the circles and the Happy Birthday is a die cut from sizzix.
Thank you so much for dropping by I'm off for a little retail therapy with my birthday money.
Take care

Stamp Something

WOW! I didn't realise it had been so long since my last post, tutt tutt what a naughty girl I am.
So much has happened since I last added to my blog, the biggest would be that I have now stopped working in the bakery and have started a new part time job, delivering Home Care products. I'm thoroughly enjoying myself so far and to make it even better I'm getting paid to exercise.
Any ways that's enough blabber, this is my entry for the fabulous challenge over at Stamp something. Please pop over and check out the DT's wonderful creations they are absolutely beautiful, well done girls.
So here is my take on the challenge, this week you have to use your favourite colours or papers and I have used both.
First I have used my beautiful Tilda stamp (as you all know I have a little obsession with Tilda) coloured her with my trusty water coloured pencils and added a little bit of sparkle using my Kindy Glitz on her wings and the bows in her hair. The flowered paper is one of my fav. because of the colours and the odd bit of sparkle through out the design. I'm unable to tell you who made it because in my rush to use it I chopped it off the label and now I can't read it, what a goose. The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment was done by using my new toy, The cuttlebug and a scalloped circle Nestabilities with a Kaiser craft rub on.
Well thanks for dropping by, I'm being kicked off the computer so Poss can do her home work.
Bye for now

Just because

Hi Girls,
How are you all? I thought it was high time that "I pulled my finger out" (Have been told more than once) and do a few cards so here are the first with more to come, I hope.
I have done the backgrounds using a kaleidacolor ink pad and a brayer on some glossy card stock. This is a new technique for me and after a few goes this is what I came up with.
The ribbon is from my stash. The black Rhinestone by Kaiser Craft. The flower stamp is by Stamp In Up, the Birthday Wishes is a stamp by Stamp It and the large Happy Birthday is done using the Cuttlebug and a Sizzix Die.
So it's of to the table for a little while before the mad 5.00 pm hour hits the house.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your evening or your day depending where you are.
