Sweet Summer Sunshine

Here is a fabulous challenge at 1 2 3 Get usual I must say.. I love these 
tic tac toes!


I chose the top line for my page....

Sunshine, Hand Drawn Stitches & Hearts 

Now before I add the photo of this page is poor, sorry.  We are in the throes of Tropical Cyclone Marcia...well, the very wet bit & there is 
no proper light to take the photo.

I have also used a very old photo & worked my page around the 'retro' look as I have been doing lately. It is great scrapping the oldies!

I have used fabulous white cardstock, & inked some lovely yellow ink across then used all my scraps on here....

Along with a cluster of die cuts....I love buying them, but dont seem to add them to my page often...that's weird hey!!

I have also made this page with Scrap Africa in mind too.  

Their challenge is 'Die cut Delights'

My die cuts are from Ruby Rock-it & Amy Tangerine.

Thank you for looking..

Love @ Fusion

A wonderful challenge across at Fusion Card Challenge once again...


And here is my card..

I have used the wonderful white Bazzill card as my base - I just love its texture, & used 2 stencils & gesso, then 3 gorgeous Heidi Swapp mists to begin the colouring...

I used some die cut leaves I purchased off Ebay last year...I think I had better buy my own die now.

Using a lovely KC woodgrain scrap & a cork embellie, & some older flowers & bling I am happy with this card...this one will be easy to give away!

Together @ CASology

This weeks challenge at CASology is

and I love mono's!

I have used lovely Bazzill white card as my base, then used one of my lovely stencils & texture paste (cos I love it)...and (im)patiently waited for it to dry.

 I then added another circular punched layer, along with a Card Topper mailed to me by the wonderful Clare Earl from the UK.  Added some Kaisercraft bling & Prima flower & voila!

I think this monochrome card will come in handy very soon...

Thank you for looking.

Love @ Feeling Sketchy

I have had a quiet morning at home as my FIL died earlier & my hubby is at the hospital..sad times for sure.

So I had to work on a card & thought that my sketch at Feeling Sketchy was just the one to do...

Sketch #114

I really love designing sketches & when I am well I will start to design more..

So here is my card...a sort of Valentine's card....

These are beautiful flowers I purchased from Wild Orchid Crafts in the UK...fantastic aren't they & the freight to Australia was very reasonable.

Hugs to you xx

Grand Parents @ The Memory Nest

Playing along this time with the fabulous Crystal Schneider sketch at The Memory Nest, plus also TBT (Throw Back Thursday)...

I have just sat & worked on this LO as a tribute to my Father-in-law who passed away early this morning...he is now with Norn. 
My Pete has been at the hospital most of the time this last week, & our niece Tam was with him when he passed. So now the saddest time of the funeral will come....

This is an old photo from 1985 when my hubby & his twin & their sister & all of us met for a picnic lunch at Minnie Waters..

I have used a selection of paper offcuts here....all in my stash....

Here is the sketch which I have turned 90deg.

Love @ CASology

Joining in with this fabulous inspiration at CASology...isn't it fabulous?

So I had to join in!

I used some brilliant paper 'We Are Memory Keepers' Love Notes, on top of my Kraft card
some lovely washi tape 

along with this 2Crafty chippie word. I coated my 'love' chippie with glue, then used 3 Glimmermist colours over the top & let it dry...just gives a different finish dont you think?  Then I highlighted parts of the word with my gold Posca pen.

design defined:
Create your own image and keep the sentiment in the middle of the card for a unique CAS design.

It was lovely to scrap this card this morning.

Thank you for a great challenge.

Hugs xx
