Who would have thought!

Hello it's me again. Who would have thought two posts in one day!!!!
I have been working on this card for a few days now. It is for a wedding me and hubby are attending in a few weeks, I'm also entering it in the challenge over at Bizzy Bec's. The theme this month is "anything goes".
I really wanted the card to be special as we have known Gabe for many years.
I'm extremely pleased at the finished card. I'm also proud to say that all the card stock is from my stash, the roses are handmade by me using a Tim Holtz die cut. The background is made using a Flourish stamp from Kaszazz and Kindy Glitz. The letter are done using a die cut and my trusty little cuttlebug. The only thing left to do is pop the gift vougher in the pocket and write on it.
This was so much fun to do. You will be seeing lots more roses on my cards from now on.....lol.
Seeing I'm on a roll I'm heading back to the craft table
Thanks again for all the lovely comments

An Award

First I must apologise to my dear cuz Heidi she gave me this award last week but I have been so busy I haven't been able to pass it on, BUT today is the day!
The rules are simple:
  1. Thank the person who gave it to you, Thank you Heidi (Love ya heaps xxx)
  2. Put the award on your blog, That will be done in about two minutes
  3. Tell everyone three thing that you love, so 1. would have to be my family, 2. Crafting, of course and 3. Quiet days at home with my wonderful man, Stuart and my three munchkins, it doesn't happen often but when it does I just love it.
  4. A picture you love. This is so mean cause I have lots of photo's and I treasure them all. But because I will follow the rules the photo in my sidebar of my Dad would have to be one of my fav. This is the last photo taken of my Dad and I will always treasure it.
  5. Pass the award on to five blogs you love. This is the hard bit cause I love all the blogs I visit for many reasons. But, again must follow the rules so here goes:

Thanks again Hedi this was so much fun to do. Take care everyone.

My favourite things

Howdy peeps,
Well I didn't realise it has been so long since my last post, seriously where does the time go?
So much has been happening. One piece of great news is that Hubby has started work, YIPPEE, so I guess that's one bit of "normal" life back.
My little man, Luke, received an honour certificate last week for all his hard work.
Leigh-Anne went to Karate Grading Sunday just gone and received her orange belt. I have popped some photos onto my sidebar.
Craige is still a cheeky little guy and finds everything funny and just goes with the flow.
The builders have been round this morning to inspect the damaged wall, again, and have said it will be another 6 to 8 week before they can start work, as the wall is still too wet POOP! One day I might have my spare room back!
Well that's enough about me, onto my entry for the challenge over at Craft Yours Days Away. The challenge is to use your favourite things.
I have made this folder following the instructions in the Magnolia Ink Magazine (I had a little splurge). The twins have a party to attend on Saturday, so for the gift I'm going to buy a movie ticket and thought this was a great idea and yep, I have used Tilda, cause she is my fav.
I have coloured her with my other fav. Promarkers. I made the roses following the instructions also in the Magnolia Ink Magazine, so much fun but very fiddly.
All the card stock and ribbon are from my stash. The butterflies are done with some Jac paper, glitter and a EK Sucess punch. The initial "T" for Tia was done with my Cuttlebug, Jac paper and glitter.
Well that was a mighty long post hope I didn't bore you to tears.
I must be off the washing machine has finished it's cycle. Take care thanks for stopping by
