Happy Birthday

I would like to share the birthday card I made for my daughter last week. Her favourite colour is pink so of course that had to feature! I used my alcohol inks on glossy card and then stamped the image from Stamp-It called  Always Dream. The flowers are from Prima.

Thank you for looking at my blog. Enjoy your day.

Life is an Adventure

I made two extra cards this month which fit  Bizzy Bec's "Fun in the Sun" Challenge here. When it came to deciding which one to share I found it very hard to make the decision (typical me!) so have decided to put up both!!

On the first one I played around with my new gelato crayons to make the background, rubbing over a background stamp which I had heat embossed. I then used two memory box dies: Swaying Palm and Brand New Bicycle. Memory Box Dies are available  for pre-order at Bizzy Bec's Online Store.

On my second card I used paper from a paper pad I purchased from Bizzy Bec's Online Store. It is called Summer Splash and is from My Mind's Eye. The only extras I added were the ribbon which was from my stash and the wave border. I wanted to make the card using  the design paper pad with minimal extras.

Take a look at Bec's Online Store to see the collection of craft goodies she has available. The prize for this month's challenge at the Bizzy Bec Store Blog is a new Memory Box Die so join in the fun and enter the Fun in the Sun Challenge.

Fun in The Sun - Bizzy Bec's Challenge

When I chose Fun in the Sun for this month’s challenge theme on Bizzy Bec’s Store Blog I had no idea that WA would have  such an intense heat wave over Christmas and the New Year! I must admit to staying inside my house with the air conditioner on rather than being out in the sun! My husband and I did, however, spend a few days after Christmas in the south of the State with family. During this time we did lots of reminiscing about our childhood, which is where the inspiration came for this card.

The Cody Fishing image from Bec's Blue Butterfly Digi Stamps Boyz Will be Boyz collection available here reminds me of the time spent with my brother when we were children fishing with my Dad in his dinghy. As a child many of our summer holidays were spent at the Great Lakes in Tasmania surrounded by the cool waters and fishing in the sun!
I have used two Memory Box Dies –Leafy Branch and Spring Border. Both these dies are available for pre- order at Bizzy Becs Online Store. The sun stamp and paper are from my stash.

Create your own Fun in the Sun Card and by entering the Bizzy Becs Challenge you could win a new Memory Box Die. 

Here’s hoping that 2013 will be a great year for everyone! For me I hope to be able to make more time for craft ........ mmmm I say that every year!!
