Mixed Bunch Butterflys...

Hi all...
 
I'm back after a quick trip to the fridge... after Xmas, don't you find the most wonderful goodies in there that you wouldn't usually find!!! Yummm... I should have chosen something healthy, but New Year is not till after tomorrow... the Cadbury chocolate sticks won out. They were meant to go on a gingerbread house but left them out of the fridge on a hot day just before Xmas & they sort of melted together!!! They look ugly but still taste awesome! mmm... if you haven't guessed already I believe chocolate should be on the bottom of the food pyramid along with the veggies...
 
Well, back to business...
 
Here is the next card on the list... this time, thanks to a bit of trimming, we have cute little butterfly's. I decided to do a couple of different colour combos....
 


 

 
More cards are on there way...
Maybe after a cuppa...

Hi all...
 
Well, its a bit more of a respectable time to be blogging... its only 7 in the evening... not 10 at night.. I might make a bit more sense... or maybe not!!!
The next few cards were made with my new 'toys' from Stampin' Up!... gotta love new toys!!!!
I used the Mixed Bunch stamp set and the co-ordinating Blossom Punch... you can do soooo much with this stamp/punch combo...
 
As you will notice I'm starting to gear up for Valentines Day... yes I know, you are probably thinking.... oh nooo... Xmas is only just over and its time to spend more money!!!! Well, it doesn't have to be too costly... The way I see it, there is nothing nicer than a beautiful hand made card to give to your loved one.... you don't need expensive pressies... Its really the thought that counts and all the TLC that goes into making a love filled card... a few yummy choccies never goes a stray though... mmm... chocolate... mmmm..........
 
Anyway... enjoy the following few card ideas....
 


 
It time to scrounge up some food before my next blog...
don't go anywhere... I'll be back soon with more!!!

My Ginger Boys..

 
Hi My Friends..
This is the last X-Mas card I wanted to share... this one was for the 2 Boys in my life... My gorgeous partner Torsten... I my wonderful son Tanis... we are sort of like the 3 Muskateers... & I had my first atempt at making gingerbread, so this cute little gingerbread stamp from work was quite appropriate..




Well, thats it for me today...
time to eat & drink again... mmmm... nice...

Enjoy the holiday...
Luv Deb x

Happy Hootmas...


Yes, me again... with more cards to share...

I simply couldn't resist this cute little owl stamp from work.
This one was made for a lovely work 'neighbour'... someone who always offers a friendly smile & hello.. Hope you had a great X-Mas Kirsty...

 


Hope you are all enjoying those X-Mas leftovers... I think there should be a 'Leftovers' Cookbook  to make them taste wonderful... mmm... need some more thought on that one...

Till next time..

Music to My Ears...

Hi all...

Well, not a lot of card making has been happening lately... you know how it is... the silly season is just around the corner... too much to do and not enough time. I did however manage to make this card with my son in mind... he has recently taken up guitar (he has played piano for 10 years) and so I wanted to make something a bit cool for the musical older 'Kidlings'... well, this is what I came up with...




Well... time for some sleep... work tomorrow... mmm.. pesky work!!!
Till next time,

Luv Deb x

P.S.  Thought I would add a bit of X-Mas cheer to my blog... hope you like the new background... x

MOJO 268

Hi all,

Well its 11 pm.. and yes... I'm sitting in my little craft room creating away... (crazy, I know) Tonight's effort was this weeks Mojo Monday 268 Challenge. I finished work at 9 tonight... got home after 9.30 poured myself a glass of wine and disappeared into my little room of therapy.  I played with this card a bit before work this morning and just had to finish it.  I've been scrounging packaging that we were throwing out at work.. (paint tube packaging..) that was just too cool to throw out. You know how it is, the mind never shuts off... and you are constantly on the hunt for new materials!!! Some days I wish my brain would just slow down and be silent... but I guess that would be boring!! I quite often eyed off this packaging and thought.. mmm.. I could use that... and this is the finished product... this weeks Mojo Monday 268 Challenge...

First of all, the Sketch... and the card...




Well, its getting late so time for some zzzzzz's...
Till next time,

Luv Deb x

Take Care

Hi all...

The moment I saw this cute little Stampin' Up! 'Take Care' stamp set, I knew I had to have it!!! Soooo love the whole little nest factor. This card is pretty similar to the one pictured in the catalogue... but, why mess with perfection! Simple, sweet... Love It!!! Think you could adapt this to a 'baby / new arrival' card maybe with little pink or blue eggs... mmm... will have to get onto that...
I glossed up the googies with a bit of glossy accents for a some cool 3D action...




Well, thats it for now...
Till next time
