We are part way through the school holidays here. Boy a week flies by so quickly. Pity only another week before we are all back to our routines and sports. Ms E and Mr M are still at uni though while Ms S and Ms A are home along with hubby. When Ms E went to uni in Geelong yesterday the girls and I tagged along for a day trip to the arts and craft shops down there. There are a few art supply shops within working distance of each other not to mention a Kaiser outlet on the drive into town from Uni. I was rather restrained and only purchased 3 items not on my list! Although I did top up Ms A’s craft stash.
Here are a couple of cards I have made.
For the current challenge at Scrapbook Boutique here
at Seize the Birthday here
no toppings for me this time
I have used ME up and away and co ordinating dies coloured with alcohol markers. The sponging and background cardstock are SU dapper denium. I used a piece of card board cut out as a stencil for my clouds. The sentiment is from Papersmoches Hullabalo.
While I had the sponges out I created this card with PTI Tremendous treats
for the current challenge at Uniko here
Fantasy Stampers here
I needed a new book mark for book club so I created this one by colouring my stamp block with markers and stamping into the ink before stamping onto my paper. By doing this I got a few variations of colour on each stamped image to replicate “fall” or autumn as we call it here in Australia. I used images from SU Thoughtful branches and Jane’s Doodles Read all about it. Even though I used greens, browns and orange markers the orange markers look pink in the photo above. Trust me they are orange!
I have also began work on a HST quilt top. Will share that another day.
Until next time
Thanks for stopping
