Hope Your Day is Fabulous!

Happy Saturday lovely friends ~

Yay it's the weekend. We've had a busy week, with part of it spent at the hospital following a sporting injury Gorgeous Kid had at school on Tuesday. Turns out no fracture, just a sprain with some pretty coloured bruising and lots of swelling.

I managed a little time in my craft room last night - not because I have any mojo happening at all, but because I WANTED to make something! I'm hoping it might get me in the mood to create a bit more over the coming days.

I've used the Stampin' Royalty #112 Colour Challenge. The colours are Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Lucky Limeade. I've layered my designer papers on a base of Naturals Ivory. I couldn't decide whether I liked a portrait or landscape orientation so I did one of each. Which do you prefer?

I hope your weekend is off to a good start. Nice and sunny and warm here in Canberra so it's going to be a good day!

Scooting by to say Hi - Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge

Hi friends ~

I put this little card together on Sunday evening after a day in the garden. It was the perfect way to wind down and relax after working so hard on a hot afternoon.

I love the cute quirky images that Kim designs over at Paper Smooches. This week there is a gorgeous inspiration pic and I took some of the colours and put them into this brighter than usual (for me) card, made especially for a friend who deserves a little happy mail this week.

I coloured the scooter with copics and paper pieced parts of it and popped them up for dimension. Don't you love those little 'puffs' at the exhaust? So sweet.

Thanks for popping by. I really love having you visit!

The 'Opposite' Card - A Valentine

Oooops I'm here a little bit later than I planned to be today. Gorgeous Kid and I have just arrived home from dinner with friends at Hog's Breath - yum!

I mentioned in my previous post to pop back and see my 'opposite' card. Well here it is ... red on white this time. I love these little felt flowers.

Which do you prefer?

JAI#103...Just Add Red & White

Happy Friday friends ~

It's time for our weekly Just Add Ink Challenge and this week Mae has given us the lovely colour combo of Red and White - any Red you like. With Valentines Day coming up I went with that theme, however, not being a huge fan of all things lovey dovey I've kept it pretty CAS.

I've used Real Red c/s and the gorgeous Polka Dot embossing folder for my front panel which is popped up on dimensionals. Using a couple of Dies I cut my roses and leaves out of felt. Hope you like!

Head over to JAI to check out the Challenge details and get some gorgeous inspiration from the other fabulous design team members.

Pop back tomorrow and I'll show you the opposite to this card.

Enjoy your Friday.
