G'Day and a entry for a challenge

Hi Everyone,
I have finally got to the craft table and made a card. This one is for the challenge over at Passion for Promarkers where they want to "see it shine".
I have used a stamp by Sarah Kay. This gorgeous little stamp was given to me by my wonderful Cuz over in the U.K. Thanks so much Heidi, The Crafty Goat Girl I love it.
Of course I have coloured her with my Promarkers, the roses are from Prima, the white card is Bazzill the rest is from my never ending stash. To give her a little "shine" I have added some Chrystalina Kindy Glitz to the roses and the image.
Not long now and the school holidays will be finished. They have flown by with all the activities that we have done, they need to go back to school just so I can have a
My boys are heading out in a minute and Poss and her friend are playing the wii so fingers crossed I may get another card done
Enjoy your day and thank so much for popping by

Good morning

Hi everyone, I hope you are all fine and dandy. Once again I'm starting to fall behind, but like everyone around Australia I have been glue to my T.V. watching for updates on the horrible, devastating floods in Queensland and now New South Wales. These people have lost EVERYTHING and if the uncontrollable water wasn't bad enough some people have started looting. I have to agree with one of the Mayors, they should be used as flood markers. There is no excuse for this behaviour, and should be punished severely. Lake Clifton, south of Perth, have had some horrific fires. People have lost their homes and all their belongings thanks to some heartless firebugs. They too should be punished severely, maybe a fitting punishment is to help the residents of Lake Clifton rebuild their lives and see first hand what they have done and they should do this day in and day out until they have paid for what they have done even if this takes them years. Please if you can donate money (the Queensland Government have a website set up and so does the City of Perth) or even a spare 5 minutes, pray for these people they have a long way to go. Sorry for all my moaning I do appreciate all the comments it just makes me very upset to see people in such bad times, I know the floods are an act of nature but the fires, they should never have been started. Thanks for stopping by I'm hoping my mojo will return soon so I can get to my table and make a few cards. Maree x

my first project of 2011

Hi everyone,
I decided to pop down to one of my fav craft shops yesterday, The Craft Stand and thought I would join in with their paper pack craft challenge. For just $10 you purchase a pack with a few bits and bobs in it and create a page (sometimes it's a card). There aren't many rules but you must use at least 80% of what is in the pack.
The co owner Paula had a great idea of doing a Christmas page so we could all use our Christmas photo's and this is what I came up with.
The papers, the chip board ornament, which I embossed, the silver ribbon and the glitter paper which I cuttlebugged snowflakes with, were in the pack. The rest was in my stash.
Between chatting on the phone, housework and looking after the kiddies this took me all day, it was a long
Well that's the first project for the year for me. Thanks for popping by
I hope your feeling better soon Jo so you can get home from the hospital and craft your days away xxxxx
