Back again with another great sponsor over at Penny's.

This challenge I got to work with LeAnn's World 101/

Looks like Spring where these 2 are.  Oh to be outside without a care.  The gingham in the background kind of reminds me of a picnic blanket, don't you reckon?  That was a very happy coincidence.  

Now with the character on the left I reckon it could be a boy or girl but I coloured it so it is up to the viewer.  You can choose.  And I done the jumpsuit on the right.  I thought of pretty in pink.  

Thought on some flowers and a sentiment and there you have it. If you would like to play along with us, please do.  There are prizes up for grabs.  

Happy crafting!

This weeks challenge is Butterflies!  
Once upon a time....most of my cards I taught a class would have a butterfly on.  Well, sort of.  If any of the ladies made a mistake we would die cut a little butterfly and cover that mistake right up.  Worked a treat. lol.  
I honestly cannot remember the last time I made a card with a butterfly on it.  So I dived into my stash looking for this set, Avery Elle I think?  I have had it so long I honestly do not remember.  

The trellis die is one I have in my stash but never recorded the company I bought it from...Darn it!
The cursive writing and greenery are a SU set called Very Versailles set.  The sentiment is from the Taylored Expression set.

Slim Line Fun

Wow!  This is me sharing a second card for absolutely no reason, except for, simply, I can.  I got a little time in the craftroom to play. 

I am sharing with you today my latest crafting purchase/obsession.

Slim Line Dies

And in Australia we have our very own home grown company with their very own line of dies.

Today, I share with you a project I made using 

Gum Leaf Slim Line Die

Stitched Rectangles

Slim Line Card and Envelope (10pk) (very reasonably priced!)

Gums and Roses stamp

Gum Leaves (the original one I used has been retired but this is close)

The colouring is very simple.  You don't need too much else with this.  I just love that they have Aussie images for us to use.  Cannot get enough of these.  Will have to try and make a few more.  
These will be available in my market stall or upon request.  So stay tuned for more slim line fun in the future!
Happy crafting!

We are back with another great Sketch for you this week.  


Used another one of my great sets from Kindred Stamps.
Science Geeks.  But now that I check for the link it turns out it has been retired.  Sadface I know. 

For those KS fans that would like to know all colour combinations with Copic markers that I use for all the sets, I will be making  a Pinterest board and sharing them all in there.  Will save you all scrolling through my blog (unless you really want to...lol)

#139 Include an Animal


Another month of some great inspiration for you all is happening over at

The theme this time around is Include an animal.  So, again, I have printed off some digital images from the 

I made this for my young niece.  I kept it very simple.  I just love CAS (clean and simple) cards.  They really make the main image pop! Isn't he a cutie!

This is one of 4 images available in the set.  It also comes with some sentiments.  The clouds are a set of 3 dies from Lawn Fawn.

Party Birds

Today I am sharing with you my latest project as Guest DT over at 
And I was lucky enough to get the chance to work with 

Our theme this month was animals. So what better way to celebrate than with some party animals....er...birds!  lol.  They were so much fun to colour and can be used for many celebrations. And I also thought putting them on a banner would be perfect. I can see a whole length of them at any party.    
And don't forget one of the best things about using digital images, is you can resize for whatever size you need for the project you are doing.  I use my WORD document most of the time but there are many different programs out there that can be used.  You just need to find the perfect one for you. 
If you pop on over the Facebook, join the Digi Doodle page and find the challenge for the month for your chance to win.  We would love to see what you come up with. 
Happy crafting!

Wow!  That last week just flew by.  We are back with another great challenge for you this week.  

This one is a sketch challenge.  These take a lot of the hard work out for you.  

And here is my take on it.  

It has been a long time since I stamped with my Heartfelt Creations flower sets.  This is the Dogwood flower coloured in pink.  The geometric shape is from a Gina K set (the only one I own :-(.  The wood panel is also from that set.  I masked them both off when stamping.  And I placed a light blue hue in the back ground and finished off with a couple of gems randomly placed.  
I had a customer ask me the other day for a belated birthday card.  Out of all the cards I have made over the years I have not one.  So I have now rectified that.  Not something I would think of doing. You have to listen to what the customers are after.
