Back to School:)

As the Summer holidays quickly come to the end..I found myself today crafting with a school purpose:) Aaaahh how nice my hobby and my work can cross over occasionally:) This fortnight over at Stamps R Us the theme is 'animals'...(its a two week challenge so pop on over here to play along as well) using my cute Stampin' Up! Fox & Friends set; Chocolate Chip ink; Old Olive, So Saffron; Chocolate Chip & Very Vanilla papers; Two-Step Bird Punch for the stem/leaves; Cuttlebug 'Olivia' letter die is a little 'Welcome' door poster for my classroom (which I can add the children's names to when I get the official list) and some name badges to use on Day One...again...left blank at the moment:) The weather was a scorcher here today so it was nice to stamp with a purpose and then head to the beach with the kiddlywinks this afternoon to cool down! Check out K1's yummy 'Iced Chocolate' creation here and K2's array of 'flies' he has made for fly fishing here! We've had a terrific summer break:)

Happy Monday:)

Happy Monday to you wherever in this wonderful world you are right now:) Here are the latest creations to travel across my craft desk! Yesterday I managed to transform Stampin' Up! papers, stamps, punches, brads & ribbons, Cuttlebug embossing, Magnolia Stamps and Copics colouring into these cards! The first card - Happy Hellos - uses the theme of 'wings' from Stamping Royalty #55, the sketch over at Unscripted Sketches #90 and the colours of Blushing Bride, Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz and Vanilla from Inkspiration #54:)

The second card - Just For You - Tilda with Cherries, uses the sketch over at Just Magnolia (Week 90) and the combination of colours from the Analogous Colour Scheme at Our Creative Corner (clisk here to see the many possible colour combinations you can use).

The third card - Surfin' Tilda - again uses the colour combinations from Our Creative Corner and the great sketch over at Clean & Simple there you have weekend creations:) Hope your week is a wonderful one...x

Celebration Cards:)

I grabbed a few crafty moments last night and finished these cards off this morning:) Both cards use this weeks monochrome themes at Just Add Ink and Cute Card Thursday and the sketch over at Unscripted Sketches. The first card celebrates a 'Happy Birthday and the second 'Happy New Year'. Using Magnolia Stamps, Copics colouring, ribbons, Stampin' Up papers, flowers, brads, Cuttlebug embossing...layer upon layer of crafty fun:) The 'Happy Birthday' card also fits in nicely with the theme of 'Let's Party' over at Cards for Men as I am popping this card in the post today to my great uncle:) The 'Happy New Year' card also fits into the bright & cheery theme over at Oldie but a Goodie. Aaahh...I'm lovin' these snippets of crafty time!! Anyway...better dash...we're off to take the kiddlywinks canoeing on the lake:)

ClearlyiStamp Blog Hop:)

I've just been on a blog hop over at ClearlyiStamp and while I was hopping along I came across a story about Katie who has stage 4 Stomach Cancer ( ) after reading about the rollercoaster ride she is currently on I discovered that a wonderful lady by the name of Jak Heath has organised a digi click here to find out how you can help:)

Happy New Year:)

Ho! Ho! Ho! and a Happy New Year:) After holidaying and celebrating Christmas with family...we are now back...home sweet home! It's been a busy but enjoyable and relaxing Christmas and New Year! So today I managed to dust off the craft desk and clear out the cobwebs...and get a little crafty for 2011:) I managed a little 'copics' colouring while we were creating this 'Happy New Year' card was just a matter of coordinating the paper and finding a sketch! I popped in to see todays Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC#100) at The Sweetest Thing and after having fun in the sun with friends while we were away, Surfing Tilda just had to make an appearance for this weeks Just Magnolia theme of 'My Favourite Things' - mind you not that I'm a surfer by any stretch of the imagination but the beach with family and friends is for me!
