Hope your week is going well.
There is a Pajama Party on at Waltzing Mouse Stamps
I took this sketch and flipped it so the circles are on the right side of the image
I am also linking to the challenge at Muse
Muse Challenge #89
This is an attempt for me to use some of the patterned paper I have collected.
Thank you Therese for the inspiration.
Before I started I consulted Ms 9 on which image she liked best and colours to use.
She chose the elephant from WMS Half Pint Heroines which I stamped onto blending cs with memento tuxedo black and coloured with alcohol markers. I chose some patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket Mini deck Baby Jane to create the card front and banners. I added SU Pool Party ribbon. The sentiment chosen by Ms 9 is from the same set again stamped with memento tuxedo black and popped up with foam tabs. I used a 1 1/4″ circle punch and layered into on Artisan label punch. The banners are a mix of free hand cut and the SU Banner punch. After playing with buttons and paper flowers I settled on hearts punched from the patterned paper with SU itty Bitty Accents heart punch and finished with some glossy accents.
Today I’ve booked tickets to the girl’s dance concert in November then I joined a relatively new group of friends at the local library for 2 hours of crafty time. These ladies are so inspiring. I am in awe of one lady who is 95 hand stitches beautifully, doesn’t wear glasses and is more mobile than some half her age. I wish she would share her secret 🙂 We come together in the middle of the library for 2 hours (or whatever we can spare) and do a crafty project with a cuppa and a chat. Some are making hand stitched quilts, one lady makes envelopes freehand, some crochet and some knit. Today I started a doll from Knitted Babes – Claire Garland. Here is a link to the ravelry page
Some have been creating for a long time others are new and come to learn. Miss 9 had so much fun coming with me in the recent school holidays I have to take her crafty projects for show and tell so the group can see what she has been creating.
Until next time

It is my walking, book club friends birthday this week.
Happy Birthday Susi
and the back
I used her favourite colour orange (SU Pumpkin Pie) along with some SU patterned paper. The image is from Papersmooches woofers and twitters coloured just like her dog Zander. The rest of the front of the card is embellished with SU Label Love and Pretty Petites and the co ordinating punches. On the back I used a Dienamics tag die and also a PTI birthday word die and stamped the “happy” from PTI Communique Curves in SU smoky slate. The stamps on the back are I think See D’s – sorry I don’t have any packaging for those. These stamps represent some of Susi’s other favourite things. The button is from Annabelle Stamps threaded with some ribbon from Kaszazz. I also stamped 2 stacks of books from Papersmooches smarty pants, coloured and attached to the top of 2 of the blocks. I put a little glossy accents on the books and “Zander’s” bow tie. This didn’t come together how I had imagined it would, I hope she likes it.
I followed this you tube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4H6Kveu0ctc for a block card
I also have a little bit more Christmas
This is my take on the current challenge at the Lollipop Ladies.
Challenge #81 Reindeer cupcakes + Grids
I have used a MFT Dienamics Traditional tags Stax (3rd largest) and added a piece of Pebbles Happy go Lucky cardstock and a small piece of red cardstock (unknown brand – truth is it was sitting next to my guillotine). I punched a hole in the top and threaded some WRMK red and white twine through. Rudolf (no red nose) was made using the SU owl punch and little leaves die. I drew the whites of his eyes with a gel pen. I got the inspiration for Rudolf from Jacquii McLeay http://splotchdesign.blogspot.com.au/search/label/owl%20punch
There is a second challenge also running at the Lollipop Ladies
You can enter either challenge at the moment.
Hope your week has got off to a great start.

A little something for Miss A (8) to take to her party next week.
I have used Uniko Round in Circles stamped in SU Melon Mambo along the base of my card front. I die cut 3 butterflies using Uniko butterfly die in glitter paper. The sentiment is from Uniko Fontiments Birthday stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and punched out using SU Artisan Label Punch and layered onto scrap of pink using the same punch.
I am linking this upto the following challenges
2TC57 ~ PINK as All Outdoors!
Thanks for popping by.
I came across this great video yesterday and was totally inspired.
I made this very cute and really simple gift box. I used some retired Stampin UP! 12″ x 12″ cardstock I think it is stitches or something like that please forgive me. I used a strip of SU Polka Dot Parade CS for the belly band and the new label love set stamped with SU Lucky Limeade and used the co ordinating Artisan Punch. As I was making this up I realised I was using the colours from the Moxiefab World Tuesday Trigger. Now if I had realised before I started I would have used some chevrons or stripes too – basing my link on the colours only.
