Pink Spots…

I fully intended to have these cards made over our recent long weekend – however other things got in the way of my crafting time.

I made this for a couple of challenges this week.


I used ABSC033 for the layout. I have used cardstock from my stash. The image is from ABS Tomorrows Dream paper pierced with bits again from my stash. I coloured her scarf and hat band with markers before adding glossy accents. I used an alcohol marker to colour her face. I die cut her using a circle die before mounting to a scallop circle.  I replaced the kite with a felt balloon cut from PTI die and added twine from the twinery (blossom). The card front is embossed using swiss dots. The sentiment is from ABS Party Animals 1. Before finishing off I added some  punched flowers with rhinestone centres.

I then decided to make a second card.


In this card I used ABSC031 sketch with ABS digi paper in spots with some ABS ribbon. The sentiment is again from ABS Party Animals 1. I added a Kaisercraft pre cut flower, Basic grey button tied in the centre with blossom twine and finished with a row of rhinestones.

These cards were my post for the Lollipop Ladies this week and I am linking them up to the challenge at Annabelle Stamps.

Thanks for stopping bye for a peek.

If you are any where near where I live I hope you are staying warm and dry!

Hope to be back again soon.




Happy Birthday – Notebook cover

IMG_3359I made this for a friend for her birthday. The pattern/inspiration is from Handmade Magazine Vol 31 Number 2 by Jemima Flendt. I varied slightly in the number of pen/pencil spots inside. It was really quick to make up and I had everything on hand. I used fabric from my stash – no idea by who or how old! The buttons are from basic grey and the orange twine is from We R Memory Keepers.


My girls liked it so I suggested instead of buying gifts for their friends maybe I could make something like this next time they have a party. So you might see a few more variations here.

After a recent tidy up of my room I have found lots of things I forgot I had – need to be a bit more productive using supplies. I found fabric to make Miss A (8) pants for school – great I can cross those of the school holiday shopping list. Fabric to make Miss E (17) a handbag. YEAH. I started on a quilt for Miss S (13) – cut out the fabric and got main panel of the quilt together – will show in another post. Debating at the moment whether to put a border or not. I also found lots and lots of Unfinished projects in a very full box. It is bit embarassing – skirts/dresses from too many years ago – cut, sewn, almost finished just requiring a hem or a button! Must finish those and give to someone who can use them.

Hope the Easter Bunny found you and you had a lovely and safe Easter.

Thanks for taking a peek.
