Naomi's Birthday Card and Liz's Thank You Card

Ssshhh...this is to be my friend Naomi's Birthday card, but I will give it to her in person when I visit her in a few weeks time in Melbourne.
I have had Pick-A-Petal for a few monthsnow and have wanted it so much but havent even used it last night was the night! I cased the idea from here. I really love this card - I think it has a real fresh, happy feeling about it. The top leaves are acetate and the stitching is my "fake-stitching" (shh dont tell). The quote is a rub-on that I found amongst my supplies as well as the purple. The green is Certainly Celery. Hope you like!
This one is a Thank You card for my friend Liz with a home-made button courtesy of Danielle Daws fabulous tutorial - you can find that here.

My Craft Area

OMG look what happened!!! Someone broke into my house and turned my ultra-tidy craft area into a shambles!!!!!!! Or...maybe it was me.....I dont know....hmmm............. at least I now exactly where everything is!!!!!
Soon I will have my very own room - where I can shut the door on it all!!! LOL - no, I'll have a cupboard where I can shut just that door!!!

The next pic is a cupboard that I had made for my daughter Charlotte's playfood - but seeing as she got a new fancy play-kitchen, I stole the cupboard to use for my "few" stamps I have....seeing it like this makes me go WOW!

Mojo Monday Week 119

The sketch below is this weeks challenge:
I woke this morning feeling a bit yucky - recovering from the flu and feeling the effects of being a woman...happy happy joy joy!!!! I buried myself in my craft desk and this is what I surfaced with about 2hrs later!

I'm happy with it. I did wonder if paper I should've softened it a bit more with less Chocolate Chip or maybe not the Kraft, but sometimes I think life just isnt always pretty and I think the verse sums that up! Hope you like!

Embellishment Magazine Colour Challenge with Snowflakes

I was so inspired by Danielle Daws card for the Embellish Magazine Challenge, that I decided to give it a go too. This is my first time so thanks Danielle!
The above picture was to be used for our inspiration - using SU's Yo-Yo Yellow, Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise and Kraft and of course incorporating a Snowflake theme. The colours were so hard for me to use - I'm not really into "primary" colours and to me, Yo-Yo Yellow is PRIMARY +, but I am quite happy with the result!

Embossed Whisper White courtesy of the lovely Bronwyn Eastley! Thank you Bronwyn!
Cardstock: Chocolate Brown, Kraft, Tempting Turquoise and Yo-Yo Yellow
Stamps: Sweet Serendipity, Snow Swirled
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise, Versa Mark
Glue, Dazzling Diamonds, non-SU bling, and non-SU ribbon, SU twine

Mum's Christmas Present

Introducing one of my mums Christmas presents - ssshhhh - she hasn't received it yet so "mum's the word" ok? LOL - I crack myself up!
It's taken me a while, but I've just cottoned onto covering things with paper (instead of material that I once would've done). So here, I've made mum a craft-pen box/holder/thingy - I showed her the paper the other day and asked her if she liked this paper, she hesitated, so I said "you better like it.....!"...lets hope she likes it!
Also, got to use my Flower Fusion II - that I FINALLY got around to ordering! Love them! Love Baja Breeze!!!

"Memory Is" Notebook

Just had to show you my lastest creation - I have decided to keep this one for myself to record all the cute and funny little things my daughter Charlotte says and does.
The quote on the front says: "Memory is a child walking along a seashore. You can never tell what small pebble it will pick up and store away amongst its treasured things."
This just reminds me of Charlotte so much - she just loves to keep and baby 'rocks' or bird eggs or feathers or even a leaf! She is known to have a piece of wood that poppy gave her, next to her bed, or an old bolt or something! They are her treasured items!!!
