Marie is turning 40

I friend I met through playgroup is having a Birthday this weekend. I have made this card for her.  I think there will be one or two beverages to celebrate as well as lots of laughs and dancing with friends and possibly a few pics taken.


I have used 3 stamp sets (see below for exact names) from The Craft’s Meow to make the “Photo”.  Stamped using Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point Ink and markers from Stampin UP!

Before I go just want to put my mum hat on and share some great news. Miss E (17) and Miss S (13) are swimming for their school on Thursday night. Well done. The best news is Miss E has made captain of the team – she found out earlier this morning at a team meeting. What a great start to her last year of high school.

Thanks for stopping

Hope you are having a great week




TCM November Sketch Challenge

I have used TCM Summertime Fun with Fibi and Lilly along with TCM Stitched Sentiments.  I used various markers to colour her in before adding to my card front. I think she is so cute.

Love the comments you leave – thanks for taking the time.



Moxiefab WCMD – Happy Birthday, The Crafts Meow October Sketch & Splitcoast Stampers Hope you can cling to

Is this stamp cute? This is The Craft’s Meow Summertime Fun with Fibi and Lilly along with sentiment from Good Times. I was lucky enough to win Good Times at the The Craft’s Meow’s September Release.

I have used Tim Holtz markers (Pumice stone, walnut stain, spun sugar, worn lipstick, weathered wood and tumbled glass) along with SU inks (So saffron, daffodil delight, more mustard, pumpkin pie, tangerine tango, crumb cake, chocolate chip, soft suede, bashful blue, baja breeze and real red) to watercolour the image.

I also used SU CS and DSP (twittepated) and the piece of lace is from my ribbon box and spica pen on the sand.

I am going to link this to the following challenges.

There is an address in Queensland where cards  made for “Hope you Can Cling to” challenge can be sent. I will be sending this one along.

Cheers for now.
