Wish Big...

Morning all...

Its Sunday.. again... and I'm off to work in a bit... 2 days off is simply not enough... between the painting and housework, I did however escape to my little craft room for a bit of therapy...
This card was so much fun to make... lovin' 3D flowers... the sentiment 'Wish Big' was from my new Stampin' Up! Stamp Set 'A Dozen Thoughts'... head over to my Stampin' Up! website  HERE if you wish to purchase this or any thing else...

Anyway, back to the card...here it is...





Well... time to go to work...

Till next time,

Paper Doll #5


Hi all...

Well Halloween is on its way... so, I'm a bit obsessed with this time of year, so my latest Julie Nutting Doll Stamp has had a 'Haunted' makeover.... not quite the 'pretty' version you so often see... I'm liking this look, so you may see another version... maybe her sister...

So, her wings were originally a bat that was quite brutishly dismembered... as you do... and the candelabra, cat and webby flourishes were all Silhouette downloads... and I used one of my all time favourite Stampin' Up! stamp sets French Foliage for the splashed & stamp... this has been retired but you can still purchase it as a digital download...CLICK HERE to check out this & more... and there you have it... the latest Paper Doll with a Gothic twist....








Well, my paint brush is calling... the kitchen wall awaits... exciting day ahead with more painting... windows outside are on this afternoons agenda... and maybe some red wine this evening to sooth the weary bones... oh yer, and some chocolate.... Yummmm..... chocolate... mmmm....

Till next time,

Take Care...


Morning all...

I have 15 minutes till I have to leave for work.... so, I had better type quickly...

This card was made using one of my favourite Stampin' Up! Stamp sets... 'Take Care'... it lends itself to so many different variations...

I used the new 'In Colours' Baked Brown Sugar & Coastal Cabana... love these colours together... I also twisted a bit of bronze bullion wire in the nest for a tiny bit of bling...




If you wish to purchase this cute stamp set or to check out more goodies, click below....



Well, I had better get going...
Till next time,

Happy Birthday Greg...


Hi all...

things here have been going slow & steady... packing, painting, cleaning... mmm... not very exciting... not a lot of crafty therapy!!!

I did however manage to make a card for Greg (he owns Select Chickens down the road...) who turned 40 today... Tanis has been doing work experience down there and when asked what he has learnt about cooking chickens, his answer was... 'they are heavy!!!!' ... not exactly the answer I was looking for, but anyway, he has had a fun week meeting the family and learning what it takes to run a chicken shop... a lot of hard work... Greg however is always quick with a smile & friendly hello when I couldn't be bothered cooking & decide chicken & chips is the answer... yummmm...

This was a combined Birthday & Thankyou card... and of course... it had to have a chicken on it...

 
This cheeky little chook was the inside left part of the card...
 


Stay tuned as I have a couple of new cards on their way...

Till next time,

Skullduggery...


Morning all...

Both 'the boys' are still in bed snoozing, and as usual, I'm in my little craft room taking some time out before I have to get ready for work... mmm... yes that 'W' word that pays the bills... & pays for more stamps & paper.... a necessary evil...

Anyway, with Halloween just around the corner, I thought I would start doing some 'scary' bits & pieces... this skull card would be perfect as a birthday card for the more 'Gothic' teen as well as Halloween...




'Alas poor Yorick!'....(for those who like Shakespeare...)
Well, had better hit the shower and get ready for work...

Till next time

Fingerprint Tree for Dad...



Me again... (busy morning in the craft room...) I quickly just wanted to share a 'fingerprint painting' on canvas I did for my Dad... being a wood turner, I thought the tree was quite appropriate...  it bares a message that is to true to many Dads out there... especially mine...

 

What Is A Dad?

A dad is someone who
wants to catch you before you fall
but instead picks you up,
brushes you off,
and lets you try again.

A dad is someone who
wants to keep you from making mistakes
but instead lets you find your own way,
even though his heart breaks in silence
when you get hurt.

A dad is someone who
holds you when you cry,
scolds you when you break the rules,
shines with pride when you succeed,
and has faith in you even when you fail...

 



 
For you Dad... I love you with all my heart...
 
Deb & 'the boys'

Happy Fathers Day Dad...



Well Dads Day has arrived...

..some of the kids making Dad breakfast in bed.. them eating it regardless of is the toast is burnt, or if they have put not enough sugar in their coffee... they will eat it and think it is the most amazing meal in the world because it has been painstakingly made by the little loves of their life... sorry Dad I'm not with you this morning to make you that brekkie.... but I will see you tonight for tea...

This card is another Cameo creation... (my stamps are very patient and are waiting for me to play with them again... I will, I promise...) I intend to do different versions of this... use the handle & latches and basic shape, but do a wood effect and a checker plate look... I will post them when I get around to making them....



Well, once again, Happy Fathers Day to all the 'Dads' out there... enjoy the day... get spoilt rotten!!!! The channel changer is in your control to watch what you want.... have that extra piece of cake or biscuit & enjoy your 'nanna nap' in the afternoon without being poked in the ribs to wake up because you were snoring...

Till next time,

Luv Deb x
