I haven't forgotten you

Hi all,

So it's been a while since blogging last, and it's definitely not through lack of want. I have been creative yet unable to take pics, then I overcame that little hurdle, and that's when my back went out of action for ... well it's still out. I have  a rather nasty flair up of Sciatica and have been in bed and on pain killers for two weeks, and am only now comfortable enough to sit for longer periods of time.

I promise you I have lots of pics to come, and am even setting up my Instagram account which I shall link you to on my next post when the details are set.

Going for Physio tomorrow, so soon I will be moving forward again.

Thank you every one,
Love always,

Happy Anniversary

 Art Impressions Spinner Winner

Hi everyone, it's been a crazy couple of weeks, 
but I'm back with my all time favorite card to date.

This card is not only an anniversary card I made for my in laws,
but it is also the stamp and die set I won from an Art Impressions contest I had entered on Facebook a while back.
It is a 5.5" square card base, with a piece of silver reflective card stock in the background, and then I added a paper doily which I painted black and adhered over the reflective piece as though it were some lace curtains.
The sentiment says 'Love is all around' and my in laws are still more than happy to have it on display.
See you all again next week, Lord willing,
where I will have some more goodies to share with you.
Love always

Black, White ...... and Gold


Hi all, 
today's card was made for one of my Husbands cousins and she just turned thirty.
We don't really see her a lot, and am really not sure what her likes or dislikes are, apart from her being a free spirit.
In saying that, I thought about what type of card she would like, and flowers or cutesy just did not seem to cut the mustard, so I went with an 'In your face' kind of card with a gold glitter card stock for the 30 inlay so it would pop. In hie sight, if I was to make the card again, I would have used a larger number die to make it pop even more.

Oh the joys of card making and learning as you go.
See you all next week, for one of my most favorite cards I have made so far.
Love always

Ice scream you scream ........ for ICE CREAM

Hello Ice cream lovers, and everyone else too.
Today's card reminds me of an old Ice cream shoppe, well that was the plan anyway.

This card was made for a very sweet young lady, who loves going to the Ice cream shop with my mother in law, (her Gran Ruth) when she comes down to visit her.
The only stamp used on this card is the Birthday sentiment, and that was done with Versamark and heat embossing it with white embossing powder by Ranger. The rest is hand drawn and colored using coloring pencils.

I do hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed making it. If you have any questions or comments, don't forget you can leave them for me and I will be more than happy to get back to you.

Until next time,
Love always

A special Birthday

Hi friends,
what a nice week it has been, I hope you all have had a lovely week too.

This card was quite fun to make, I knew I wanted balloons and the elephant as well as the die cut 4, so Pinterest inspiration I went.
I love the way the card turned out, I can't remember now (as this card was made in January) but I think the elephant came from one of the Mama Elephant stamp sets.
The card base measures 5.5" sq, the die cut 4 comes from a Kaisercraft numbers die I have, the Happy Birthday is an old stamp set I own and the balloons are hand drawn and colored with Crayola coloring pencils. The enamel dots are a DIY find on Pinterest, which you can see if you click here.
So that's it my crafty friends,
I really hope you have a great week, I am off to make some happy doggy cards from a Mama Elephant stamp set. 
Love always

Birthday Piano

Hi guys,

I hope everyone is having a great day, it is poring down here in Geelong.
My card today is a take off from a very familiar card going around on Pinterest.

Here I have made the card on a 5.5" square card base, and instead of leaving the keys all flat to the card, I have popped all them up apart from a few which I was told is a chord. 
I have heat embossed the greeting on a piece of black card stock and adhered it to the card where the piano lid and the keys meet.
Thanks for stopping by,
and I hope you all have a great weekend.
Love always,

A huge Birthday

Hi yo friends,
It's been a busy week with lots going on, just not much crafty.
This card I made is yet another shaker card. The image is that from Art Impressions and it is Set 4475 - Cake Popper.

Sorry about the way the image is taken, I can assure you it does stand up straight and shakes really well, ha, ha. Anyway the image is colored in with pencil and blended with Gamsol and a blending stump, the sequins are a mix of magenta white and clear, with some white sea beads and some mini red metallic circles to make up the shaker portion.
This was all framed up with red card stock and a faux white stitch line, then added to an A5 card base to complete the card.
Thanks all for stopping by,
see you next time,
Love Kerrie,
