Hope your week is going well.
We are heading into the last week of netball. Ms 19 & Ms 15’s team have made the Grand Final this coming weekend.
Very exciting. I have to keep telling myself it is just another game! It is a great achievement for the team. Last season the team only won one game for the entire season and this year Grand Finalists.
Anyway I am sure you didn’t stop by to hear about netball
Today I am sharing a card I made using Annabelle Stamps Designer Flower and co ordinating die. The flowers are stamped in MFT snow cone ink and SU So Saffron. The background was embossed with SU Modern Mosaic EF and the leaves were die cut using CC Designs Leafy Branch.

I have a few things to share today.
Ms 10 helped me last week sort through my stash and we found a few gaps. Mainly due to the fact I make as I need. So I have been making a couple of things over the last few days to fill those gaps.
And doing so I am linking up to a few challenges as well
This first card I made in two colour ways using a range of stars from Annabelle Stamps Boy’s Party, Uniko Balloon Bash, Inspired by Stamping Build a Stocking, Papertrey Ink Star Prints and sentiment from Papertrey Ink.
I am linking upto the challenge at Pinterst Inspired Challenges here
and the next card I am linking up to the challenge at Scrapbook Boutique here
I stamped my image from Stamp It and mounted onto chocolate coloured card stock. The pattern paper is from a Kaisercraft pad along with the tag I stamped the sentiment on. The sentiment is from PTI World’s Greatest.
I also have a little update on my jumper.
I am knitting in Bendigo Woollen Mills Athena yarn I purchased last year. It is lovely and soft.
Thank you for getting all the way here.
It is a long post today.
I am stopping today to share a link to Kathy from the daily marker’s pop up challenge here
All the details over on Kathy’s blog
If you haven’t heard the Crafting with Dragonflies challenge blog is back.
First challenge can be found here
I am happy to hear Hilde is upto running this again.
It was a little prompt for me to get some butterflies who have been sitting on my workspace onto a card!
So while I was linking up to this challenge I will also link up to the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge here
I stamped these butterflies a couple of weeks ago and that was as far as I got. I have been busy knitting and haven’t got back to my workspace.
I started with a whisper white thick card base. The butterflies are stamped from SU Watercolor Wings in crushed curry marker, daffodil delight ink and memento tuxedo black ink onto a scrap of whisper white cardstock.
I then die cut with the co ordinating framelits. I finished the buttefly with black rhinestones. The pattern paper is from SU Cherry on top mounted onto black cardstock. The sentiment is from SU Butterfly Basics.
As I had a few more butterflies cut out I created a couple more cards.
and to finish off today
Mr 17 has an 18th this weekend and needed a card. I coloured this Jane’s Doodles digital image some time ago with alcohol markers and he picked this for the card front.
I finished off with Papersmooches Digits and numbers dies and mounted onto co ordinating cardstock.
I hope you have a great weekend planned.
This morning I have been marshaling at a walk-a-thon for Ms 10. Tomorrow we have only 2 games of netball (down from 4). Ms 15 & Ms 19’s team is in the first preliminary final. To round out the weekend we have a few parties and the normal mum’s taxi service will be running.
Hope to be back soon with some more creations.
I have just committed myself to an Artisan Market in my local area. Will post details later.

How time gets away.
Thanks for stopping today.
Today’s card I am linking up to the current challenge at Scrapbook Boutique here
And here is my card
I started by stamping Kaisercraft lace stamp using PTI aqua mist ink onto my cardstock. I stamped the images from Mama Elephant Up and Away in memento tuxedo black ink onto blending cardstock before colouring with various alcohol markers and cutting out with the co ordinating dies. Before I fixed the die cut images to the card front I added small flowers from the set in SU pink piroutte ink. I used the Mama Elephant stitched die from the basic set I ran it through a second time to make my rectangle smaller. Before adhering I added a small piece of SU Mint macaron dotted lace trim. The sentiment from Inspired be stamping small fancy labels 1 is stamped in SU smoky slate ink and punched using the designer label punch.
Hope you have a great weekend planned.
I have one more card from my watercolour play to share
I am linking up to the monthly challenge at Stamplorations here
I stamped and coloured onto watercolour paper. The darker areas of colouring I added using water colour pencils from the same set. The stamp is Stamplorations Blooming buds and the sentiment is from Jane’s Doodles Doodle Flowers II.
