Anzac Poppy...


I just wanted to pay respect to the devoted soldiers who fought, gave their lives, lost mates and suffered for us in the war as well as the suffering of their families... not forgetting those who are out there now!!! I thank you...

The poppy symbolised remembrance, so I thought it quite fitting to share my 'Poppy' Card..

Following the war, thousands of Poppies bloomed in the fields of Flanders in Western Europe.  The Poppy seeds had laid dormant until the soldiers boots churned & upturned the soil & fertilised with their blood... symbolising new life from death...




Enjoy the day with family & friends and remember how lucky we all are...

Flower Friends


Hi fellow crafties...

This last week I nearly hurled my laptop across the room!!! AAAHHHHHHH!!!!! I have been missing in action in the yucky world of website setup, legal mumbo jumbo form filling out dramas, codes, passwords etc blah, blah, blah... If things could go wrong did go wrong... (no wonder people get paid a fortune to set up on line businesses!!!) Of course, me being me, decided to give it all a bash myself... mmm....  I am still ironing out the wrinkles.. going to take a while so will keep you posted... If only it was as easy as blogging...

For those of you who would like to follow the progress of my new EShop business Wild Wicks Candles here is the link...

 www.wildwicks.com.au

Please ignore any spelling errors, lack of links etc during the construction phase... they will be fixed... still working through them... The shopping cart is still to be activated and will accept pay pal, and credit cards... I will definitely let everyone know when all is up and running... Stay Tuned!!!

So, back to today's card... yes I did make a little bit of time out to do some mindless crafting for stress relief!!! Hope you like it...




Enjoy the day...
Till next time,

Nannas Garden...

Hi all...

Well, 1st week of my holiday nearly over... not fair!!! They always go to fast!!!!!!!

Anyway, I've been busy watching movies, crafting & on the computer fuddling my way through a stack of legal mumbo jumbo setting up a new website and business for my Wild Wicks Candles. It's been a huge learning curve, a lot of swearing and walking away from the computer wondering why am I doing it all... then, I light one of my candles and am reminded why.... I lOOOVVEEE my delicious soy candles I want to share them with the world!!! So all is right in the universe, the bulk of the hard work is done... fun stuff to come, the website design. I've been playing on a trial version and have pretty much mastered it... still many hours of sweat & possibly tears to come, but soooo excited. There will be big announcements to come once it is all up and running...
Stay tuned... 

Back to business... the card making business that is...

The retired Stampin' Up! Butterfly punch has come out to play again.... used to make cute little sweet pea flowers... Love making these... they always remind me of the beautiful sweet peas in Nannas Garden. Got a bit carried away though as there is a heap of these little flower buds still sitting on my desk waiting to be used... mmm... will get to those later...

Now for the cards...







Well my lovelies, time to put the kettle on..
Till next time,

Well, I am off the flower mission for a couple of days... and playing with shoes... what girl doesn't like that!!! mmmmm..... shoes....

I spotted this awesome shoe book in a cheapie book store... for a whole $7... a different shoe for each day of the year... so, out with the trusty scissors... and away I went... adding bits of bling on the way. I just used my printer on a colour photocopy setting and hey presto, an endless supply of shoes!!!!!
Proves you don't need to spend a lot to make pretty cute cards. I have got an old street directory for my next book recycling mission... cards for the men... stay tuned...
