Baby Girl

My husband's sister and brother-in-law welcomed their first grandchild recently. A beautiful baby girl.

I found this cute little image and used some papers from my stash. Added heart shaped doily, lace, flowers and embellishments.

Thanks for looking.

Dad birthday

This is my Dad's birthday card.

I found an image on the net and then edited through Picaso to give it a sketch/vintage look. Added lots of embellishments I found at the craft convention in Brisbane last month.

Lost Post

I've just been sorting through some photos and found this card I made last year but somehow forgot to hit the publish button. 

This was for my niece Keely. She has been playing the violin since she was quite small so when I found this image I thought it would be perfect for her.

This is a Digi image which I have coloured with copic pens. The birthday greeting is from LOTV. Pattern papers from Stampin up.

Thanks for looking.


More Vintage Cards

Here are some vintage birthday cards I made earlier this year.

The images are from Magic Moonlight Images.

Mothers Day


I've spent a lovely day today with my family at the Botanical Gardens. We found a beautiful shady spot to have a picnic lunch and good chat with family members we haven't seen in awhile. The kids had a great time too with lots of footpaths to ride their skateboards and feeding the ducks and turtles.

This is the card I made for my Mum. I found the pattern for the teapot at  I've used Kaisercraft pattern paper (Magnolia) and  matching pink bazzil cardstock.  Flowers, pearls and  accessories are from Wild Orchard Crafts. I coloured the pearls with a copic pen to match the pink. Greeting stamp is from LOTV.

Hope you enjoyed your day. Thanks for looking.

Foxy Card

This card was made for my friend Debbie who celebrated her birthday recently. 

She is a collector of all things Fox so I had to use this vintage image which I sourced from Google images. The scalloped circle is a Marianne's die which I've made into an easel card . The patter paper is digital paper which I've printed. Also used flower from Prima and some pearls.

I also put together this little cutie for her;

I got the kit from Happy Sew Lucky. She loved it.

Thanks for looking.

Vintage Card

Thought I would try some vintage for my card today.

The image is from Magic Moonlight free images and is called "1925 young sweet" . It is aptly titled as it's a beautiful image. The patter paper is a digi download and is called Vintage Postcard.  I've been unable to find where I sourced this from but will update when I do. I cut out the butterfly and added some foam dots to make it pop up. The little postcard is also digital.

I've added some ribbon, pearls and metal embellishments which are all from Wild Orchard crafts. The flower is from Prima Flowers.

Thanks for looking.

Christmas & New Year wishes

My kids and our little Buddy on Christmas day.

Hi everyone. Merry Christmas and Happy 2012 to you all.

 I thought I should post some of the christmas cards I made this year. Unfortunately I didn't make as many as I would have liked to. I used a selection of papers from Papermania. I actually bought this paper pack last christmas and didn't really like it so just put it in my stash. I must admit I've really enjoyed using these colours this year.  I also used a selection of LaLa Land digi stamps, a Wild Rose Studio and a little Hanglar Stanglar stamp I had never used before.

Here's a close up of each card:

All the images where coloured with copics.

Hopefully I'll get some time again this year to make more cards and I'm hoping to start some scrapbooking again. It feels like forever ago I was scrapbooking.

Until next time - thanks for looking.

Chinese Tilda

I recently made these cards using the Chinese Tilda. I've had these pattern papers for years in my stash.

I've coloured the flowers to match with my copic pens. Added metal embellishment, pearls, die cuts and MS butterfly punch.

The inspiration for these cards can be found at My Magnolias.

Thanks for looking.

Marci in Paris

Just catching up with a few cards I've made over the last month but haven't yet posted.

This lovely stamp is from LaLa Land Stamps. Instead of colouring with copics this time I've paper pieced her clothes and hat from matching paper. The design paper is from Kaisercraft as is the Ifle tower chipboard shape. Stitiched around outer edges and added pearls,flowers and swirl. Die cut shapes are from MFT.

The idea for this card came from Rosie Bridges.

Thanks for looking and hope to show some more over the next few days.

All That Jazz

Today's card was made using an image download from Printable Heaven. They have lots and lots of digi papers and card fronts to choose from.  I've used some pattern paper from Kaisercraft which fits the theme perfectly. Used metal embellishments from my stash.

Thanks for looking.

Tilda and Cat

I'm slowly catching up with all my birthday cards. This one went off in the post this week. I've used a different colour combination for me. I'm very partial to pink so doing a blue card this time was quite a challenge.

 The image is coloured with copics. The garden seat is from CC designs and fits perfectly with Tilda. Pattern paper is from Kaisercraft Utopia paper pack.

The weather here is quite ordinary today. Started with sunshine and then quickly developed to a storm. Has been bleak every since. Good crafting weather though, so hopefully will get a few more cards off the list.

Thanks for looking.


Tilda with frog

Another froggy birthday card for my sister in law who loves frogs. It's become quite a challenge to find froggy images each year. I love this stamp from Magnolia and this is the first time I've coloured it. Used Copics for colouring and some diamond stickles for sparkle. Paper is from Papermania Rose Garden paper pack.

Thanks for looking
