I thought this stamp gorgeous, the best pregnant stamp I have seen. The rose swing stamp in the background I think adds to this card. The swirls in the dress and sleeves is done with a gold marker, the sentiment is from TGF's cake topper stamp set. The colours are SU's kraft and Not quite Navy. She is coloured with copics and SU markers.

I can't believe tomorrow is July!!! Time is flying. Had my dance performance last night and was really please we all got it right first time. We were all in sync and I only made I tiny stuff up at the end. I am thinking about posting the video, but I will think some more.

I have just got my whiff of Joy stamps and have purchase the Woman's Delight series. The stamp above is one of the stamps. I first coloured int he picture using purples and blues, then
used the chocolate chip desinger paper and Opulance card as it fitted with the purple of the dress. I realsed later that it wasn't really boy colours... but if figured the card would be for the mother not the baby. The image is designed by Elisabeth Bell who draws gorgeous designes, alot of her designs of girls remind me of my girls, so that is why I am really falling in the love with them. The stamp image called Daisy is just like my Mikayla (the youngest). I so want that stamp but it is no longer for sale on the whiff of joy site, I will get my hands on it eventually.

Hello everyone,
This gorgeous card was created after I coloured the ballerina. Samantha my eldest daughter told me to colour her hair black, so I did. With all the pink I had to use the theme black and pink. The sketch is from the SCS challenge sc233. The paper is from Stampin Up!. I put glitter on her tutu to give it a bit of sparkle. The Sentiment is from my SU's Best yet stamp set.
By the way I decided not to enter the TGF Fresh Friday sketch challenge, maybe next Friday.

Hi all,

I thought I better start getting into the Christmas cards as I know I will leave it to the last minute or not at all. I was inspired by a talented lady Cheryl Walker who I cased the Christmas bunny idea off. I love this bunny he is so cute. I used the flourish from Kaisercraft and the sentiment is from my new favourite SU stamp set Best Yet. The ribbon is flecked with silver.
I like the simpleness and elegance of the card. I hope you do too.
I have also used this card for The Christmas All Year Round challenge.

Hello everyone! Wow Canberra has had some beautiful days, this week. The girl and a flowers are coloured with copics and SU markers. The stamps are from The greeting Farm's Hope and Grace set and the sentiment is from the SU Hostess level one stamp set Best yet.

Card colours are whisperwhite, ridinghood red and confetti white.
Colours: Real red, Ruby Red, Old Olive and Artichoke, black and copics r29, r59, yr07, yr04, e29, e51, e02, y06.

It's funny the card looks lop sided, but it is a trick I promise. Because you can't see the other side, I think the butterfly on the top that is on the side makes it appear crooked.

I have a another card which I put up tomorrow night.
see ya then,

This is a little card I did for the SC230 or sc231 I can remember now, sketch over at SCS. I didn't like the way the last stripe stood out by itself it looked funny so I added the flower.
Wendy is coloured with copics, the background paper is Spirograph from KaiserKraft. Other colours are close cocoa and baja breeze. All images can be found at The Greeting Farm, from the never ever stamp set.

My scanner is on the blink so I won't be able to post any photos until I can work out the problem :(
keep safe

WOW IT'S THE 1ST OF JUNE.... FIRST DAY OF WINTER!!!! Well for us Southerners.

I have made several cards to show you over the next for days, the first one is Geisha Doll (tiles). I fell in love with this paper from Bella Blue and used the scraps to create a tile background for my Geisha Doll. I colour her in copics greys and black. I used dark brown hair for a little change. I was going to put a sentiment but I didn't know what or where to put it. LOL.

There are new stamps at TheGreeting Farm, which I a busy saving up for. I hope you are all well.
What is your favourite season? Mine is really all season as long as it not too cold and windy. In Canberra we have beautiful winters except when the wind blows of the Brindabella Mountains from the Snowy Mountains (where all the snow is), then it become horrid and freezing, where the sun doesn't get warm. bRRRRR!
