Saturday challenge

Hi ya everyone,
Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.
I know I haven't been around lately but it's is still school holidays (they end Monday) and have been busy keeping the kiddies happy with trips to the beach, play dates, shopping for uniforms and books, swimming lessons etc....
I spent last Wednesday morning at the hospital because Luke has tonsillitis and on Monday my Doc informed me that I have a fracture in my foot so I guess it is off to have an x-ray. booo whooooooo :(
One fantastic thing that happened, was I had a great 2 hour long chat with my Cuz, Heidi aka The Crafty Goat Girl we laughed and laugh and then laughed some more , always good to have a giggle or two, or in our case 20 or
So that's enough about my week this is my entry for a great challenge over at The Secret Crafter where the challenge is set by Wendy. You have to use hearts.
I have used a fab stamp by Pollycraft this one is part of the Sherbert collection, coloured with my Sugar Loaf markers. The blue background is sponged on with blue ink. The other multi-coloured background was done using Tim Holtz alcohol inks and applicator, the sentiment is a stamp by Kaszazz. I used some double sided tape and popped some glitter on it to create a border, this is a great idea if you can't get straight lines.
I'm off now time to start cooking my babes some tea and get them, cleaned. They are also going to clean their rooms up while I'm cooking they don't know it yet so sssssshhhhhhh it's a surprise. I can hear them moaning already.............hehehehehe
Have a super day/night and maybe I will be back tomorrow. I still have a zillion books to cover, poop!

Allsorts challenge, Pink and Brown Combo

Hi Ya everyone,
It is so hot in Perth today I can't even try to describe it to you. I have just checked the old thermometer and it reads 42*C. OMG! it is HOT, so it's indoors for us with the air con cracked up high.
So, while the kiddies are watching a movie and hubby is having a snooze I thought I would sneak off to the craft table and do a challenge.
This one is for the Allsorts Challenge where the challenge is to use a fab colour combo, pink and brown.
The pink card is a bazzill, the image tittled "Bigsby" is by Karen over at Karen's doodles (click Here to check her images out) coloured with my sugar loaf markers. To take the starkness away from the white of the image I sponged on some Close to Cocoa ink from Stampin up.
The sentiment is a stamp I borrowed from my Poss (Leigh-Anne). Thank you Poss.
Thanks for stopping by I'm of to have a nice cold glass of wine and a swim. Don't forget to checkout Karen's images they are really gorgeous and you won't be disappointed.

Sketch and Stash challenge

Wow! Where does the week go. They certainly do fly by don't they.
Anyways, this is my entry for the fab challenge over at Sketch and Stash where not only do you have to follow a great sketch but you need to use your newest stash and this is what I came up with.
I have use a Tilda stamp and sentiment which was a Christmas present from the fabulous Crafty Goat Girl - Heidi (thank you Cuz) coloured her with my Sugar loaf markers. She has been cropped onto some Bazzill card stock- Bahama. The pink floral paper is from my stash the rhinestones are from Kaiser craft. The flourish stamp, which I have used as a background on the Bahama Bazzill, is by Kaszazz and the deep purple is also a Bazzill.
Well that's it for now we are still melting here is Oz so it's back to the pool for me and the munchkins.
Thanks once again for popping by hopefully there will be some "me" time later today I just won't hold my breathe

2nd post for the day

Hi again,
I will just wait for you all to get back up off the floor.........................I know, who would have thought the worst blogger in the world would have two postings in one day, I can't believe it
So, this is my entry for the Moving along with the times challenge, I hope I'm not to late, the challenge is to pick a previous sketch. So I have picked one that Heidi came up with back in October.
The popcorn bear is a stamp that I have borrowed from a friend, thanks Jo. I coloured him yesterday with my sugar loaf markers while the twins were in the pool. The card stock is a pale mauve bazzill. The Rhinestones are by kaiser craft, sentiment by Kaszazz and the heart paper is from my stash.
Well, the kids are driving me nuts to go back in the pool, I don't blame them it is 39*C in Perth today, extremely hot.
Thanks for popping by
