It's a Guy Thing...


Mornin' all...

Yes, crazy me... its 5.30 in the morning and I am already at it!!! My adorable 'Other Half' is off to work... early start... my son is at a friends house and speaking of houses... I have mine all to my self to craft till my hearts content.. housework is done... OK maybe not the floors as Chewie (my 65kg puppy) has spread muddy footprints the size of dinner plates up and down the hall!!!AAAHHH!!!! It doesn't help when my floors are black so you can mop them & 2 seconds later they can look dirty! Mmmm.... not happy... but, because it is still dark outside, they look clean... that works for me...

Anyway, today is going to be all about the boys... there is always a fine line when doing 'boy' cards... you need them quirky enough so they don't immediately chuck them in the bin... so they think... 'Oh, that's cool.. love it!'... and actually mean it... and not too girly... so the challenge has been set!

While we are chatting about 'boys'... here is a card made from a stamp set I got from work... 'Dapper Dan'... very cool... I kept it quite natural looking.. bit of black embossing powder... and there you have it!





Ohhh... my coffee cup is empty! Who drank it? Have you ever had one of those mornings when you can't remember drinking you coffee... mmm... OK... time to put the kettle on and get to work... should I say 'play'...

Till next time,

Happy Birthday Mum!


Hi all...

Today's post is going to be very quick... feeling tired and having extended blinks... time to hit the sack soon... before I do however.. I wanted to quickly share a card I finished up giving to mum for her birthday... 'Happy Birthday Mum!'

I used the Stampin' Up! 'Flower Shop' Stamp Set and the coordinating Pansy Punch with the "Petite Petals' Stamp Set... I also dragged out my old favourite Martha Stewart leaf punch for a bit of added foliage...






Well... my lovely little puppy is snoring next to the bed so that is my cue to follow...

till next time,

Blow out your Candles...



Hi all...

Well... I have had an industrious day out in 'Deb's Craft Shed' while listening to the rain on the roof... I made a pretty awesome card for a friend... 'glitterfied' (is that a word???) some votive holders and a wine glass (will take photos to share later)... speaking of wine glasses.. I did enjoy a glass or 2 of red whilst 'Crafting'... ate chips, biscuits and pastie slice... mmm... all is right in the world!! Healthy eating will start again tomorrow!! Yer, right...

Anyway, I quickly wanted to share a couple of cards I have made a little while ago using simple paper straws... I got a bit obsessive in collecting straws after making these and now have a whole box of different colours, styles etc... yes, I went a bit overboard but they will come in handy down the track... so I keep telling myself!







Well.. my gorgeous brown puppy is snoring his head off next to the fire... he is out for the night... good guard dog! I think that is my cue to grab a quick drink & call it a night...

Till next time..
