Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Not a bad one here, the children had a few good games. The U9 Netball (Miss 8) and U16 (Mr 15) Basketball won, however the girls open team had a loss – they were up at 3/4 time – Miss 17 & Miss 13 play open Netball (same team).
I was lucky to get some new stamp sets from Flourishes by way of Moxie Fab World recently. I really like these images – they are great for colouring. I inked up the Garden Gate set and made this card. I stamped the image onto water colour paper. I have coloured it using Stampin UP!, Tim Holtz and Marvey Le Plume markers. The cardstock is from Pebbles and I used Lifestyle Crafts circle dies. The button is from my stash with a little twine from the Twinery (blossom) added. I haven’t added a sentiment yet.
And I made a second card using Flourishes Spring Blossom same cardstock.
I used an Xcut Scallop Circle die and added a Stampin UP! Sizzix Butterfly with a little bling. I also added a little bling with clear and pink Spica pens – sorry they don’t show up in this pic. Perhaps I should have made the butterfly pink. I do like how this card came together.

+ scallops – there are scallops on my background paper too
Thanks for stopping and taking a peek.
This is the second card for the Barbie 18th last night. Just got this finished in time to take a quick pic before heading out to the party. I did rush this a bit and unfortunately I think it shows – my colouring isn’t that great.
I know Barbie and the Tardis?? Not sure of the relationship myself. Anyway it was the DR and a tardis that was requested.
I got he original image from http://mayzyartfree.blogspot.com.au/2013/01/doo-weeeeeee-doo.html
I have used cardstock from my stash including the stripes from Creative. I coloured in the Dr using Tim Holtz, Stampin UP! and Marvy Le Plume markers finished with a touch of spica pen to the sonic screwdriver. I coloured the image from Stampin UP! Happiest Birthday Wishes with markers before punching out using a SU tag punch. The DR is popped up with foam tabs.
I am going to link this up to the anything goes challenge here
Thanks for stopping
Enjoy the rest of your weekend
I am linking this card up to the Anything goes challenge at
and to Anything goes at
All about spring
I have used a free digital image printed onto water colour paper coloured with Stampin UP! markers and spica pens. I used Fiskars scallop border punch for the bright pink border. Buttons from my button jar threaded with hemptique twine.
As a requirement of the Use it Tuesday – using hoarded supplies the newest item on my card is the twine purchased before Christmas – everything else is much older. As for the buttons I have no idea how many years they have been sitting in my jar!
School holidays here. A few projects in mind and outings with the children planned – fingers crossed I get somethings achieved!
If you celebrate Easter – Easter blessings to you and yours. Hope the Easter bunny hops my way.
How is everyone going? Feels so long since I have made anything. Had a few days away with the family and extended family after Christmas. Then I had a few days home without the family. Perfect time for some uninterrupted crafting I hear you say. Oh but I spent the time working – small breaks away from the desk but mostly working.
Just sharing a card I have made for Mr M who turns 15 on the 15th.
He is a huge Dr Who fan. So when I came across this free digi at MayzyArt – mayzyartfree.blogspot.com.au recently I just had to use it for his Birthday card.
What do you think?
Miss A (8) came to give her approval – at her suggestion I added some clear spica pen to the top of the tardis and the sonic screwdriver. Not sure if you can see it in the pic.
I will link this up to the following challenges

I hope if you are in any of the fire zones you have managed to stay safe.
I hope to be back soon.
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.
