Flutterby Sidestep


Hi Fellow Crafties...

Well, the rain is coming down in buckets!!! I'm tucked away nicely in my craft room doing the last few bits for tonights get together with the 'girly folk'... this is the card we will be making. There are so may versions of the side step cards... this is mine using the Stampin' Up! Flight of the Butterfly Stamp Set and Butterfly Punch.



The grass in this card look suspiciously like my grass in the back yard... mmmm... gotta luv winter weather... who gets a chance to mow the lawn when its pouring with rain... any way... hope the girls have fun...

Till next time..
Keep Crafting...

Another Cup Please...


Howdie Fellow Craft Addicts...

I was rifling through my drawers today looking for cards to show at tonights card making get together with some girly folk... & I came across this card... It nearly ended up in the bin... It was one of those cards that I wasn't 100% happy with it at the time and didn't bother to blog... well, after a second look today I thought I would share any way seeing I used this stamp set the other day..



The stamp set used was the Stampin' Up! Tea Shoppe set... another stamp set that I absolutely LOVE!!! There simply has to be more hours in the day to do all the crafty things one needs to do..


Well, stay tuned... side step card on its way...

Here Kitty Kitty...


Hi Fellow Crafties...

Well, tonight's mission was to finish 'Kitty'... she was our work challenge... we had to decorate a paper mache mask... this was what I came up with. I know... not your usual furry kitty (like madam Kiara) but when I think of how cats view themselves, I am positive this is what they think they look like to others... fearless, regal, and have ruled for centuries... and yes, they still rule the household to this day!!!! Mine does at least. So I guess this is what Princess Kiara would have looked like in one of her many past lives, centuries ago...


This little Kitties head piece was made from fimo, and old button and some little seed beads... her hair was a bunch of sea grass & paint... and the face decoration was made by piping on some impasto medium and then painted.... her golden head piece was made using fimo & an old vintage button... gotta love those... and finally a little bullring to finish off and hey presto...
'here kitty kitty..... meow.....'
Can't wait to see what the rest of the girls come up with....



More cards are on their way soon... so stay tuned... its Butterflies next on the list...

till next time... purrrrrrr...meow!

The Furries...


Hi De Ho Fellow Craft Addicts..

Well.... I haven't gone into hiding... just been busy painting, card making and mask making.... nothing finished yet to blog so I thought I would just say hi... 'Hi!' and share a picture of the 'Furries'...
Kiara is my demanding diva of a kitty... and Maximus Decimus Meridius... Max for short... (you can tell I come from a household of boys... boy type movie names...mmmm.....) is the schnauzer...

As you can see... they are extremely energetic... NOT!!!



Maxie is a simple little creature... unlike the ever demanding Mzzz Kiara!!! I have had quite a few cats in my years (I used to feed all the strays as a kid... sorry Mum & Dad) but this little creature is a breed of her own!!!!! She is part ragdoll and part Persian... and a whole lot of attitude... she is affectionate to the point of suffocating but I wouldn't have it any other way... LOVE her to bits...

Anyway had better go and finish some crafty bits so I can blog them for you all...

Keep on crafting...

X Box 360!!!


Hi Fellow Crafties,

This card was make for my brother-in law... he just received an X Box 360 for his birthday... poor thing only had a couple of games... mmm... compare that to my two X Box addicts!!! Lets put it this way... no single cupboard is large enough to house all the games they have!!!!!!!! When I comment they compare it to my craft addiction... what addiction... I haven't got an addiction...... really....

Anyway, this is the 'paper tole' version of an X Box controller... all lumpy bumpy, shiny buttons etc... makes you just soooo excited... not.... has to be a boy thing I think.... at least he loved the card!!!
Any way time for work...




Till next time

The New Look!!

Hi Fellow Crafties,

yes... you are on the right blog... I am in the process of sitting down and looking for a new background... Its a bit like trying on new shoes... you have to try on a few before you find the one that's just right!!!
There are so many 'pretty' backgrounds out there but I wanted to stick to a more earthy feel... Dads a woodturner, Mum makes wooden earrings and other bits so I wanted to keep it woody and earthy to stick to the family tradition...
so... to cut a long story short... you may see some changes over the next few days..

Enjoy the day...

Need for Speed 2


Hi Fellow Crafties...

Well all I can say is that have lost feeling in my fingers!!! Is so cold I have fog coming out of my mouth as I breath!!!!! There is no heater in my craft room and the temperature outside is currently about 10 degrees!!! I may have to migrate into the lounge (the heater is on as we speak...) till I can get a heater in here... not good... my little fingers are having problems typing... thank goodness for spell check!!

Back to business... here is the next card from the Stampin' Up! Need for Speed Stamp Set.. this one is for the 'Nautical' man in your life... thought I would get a jump start for Fathers Day ideas....





Well, If you are in Adelaide... stay warm!
Till next time,

Little Cuties


Mornin' fellow Crafties...

Yay for Fridays... (I don't work... Fridays...) gotta luv a day off work.. that means more crafting time. Well the house work is calling, but I have a plan. Get stuck into the yucky work this morning as quick a humanly possible and relax this arvo in the craft room.

Yesterday I received a stack of new stamps... very excited... so playing with these is high on this afternoons agenda. My lovely other half has a birthday coming up as well as my brother in law so a couple of 'Boy' cards will also need to be done.... Its a hard life in the craft room... mmmm... not!!!


Well, today's blog is all about 'The Little Cuties'... this stamp set is from Prima... Yuki for Ruby Violet... lovin' the manic little Kittys... the loose threads from the buttons remind me of little feral cat whiskers..






Anyway, enough blogging for this morning... the housework awaits. Hopefully you will hear from me again very soon.

Enjoy your day,

Luv Deb x
