Catching Up

Hi again.  I haven’t been madly creating in all this time i’ve been away.  I’m not sure what we’ve been doing.  Life I think!!  LOL

The paper flowers below were a get well gift to Mark’s Nan who had some surgery on her knee a month or two back.  I wanted something more lasting than flowers but just as cheerful!  I’m pretty sure she liked them!! (Big thanks to Vickie for the box & Cello!)

And then the card to go with.  It’s also a card we made at a Big Shot Workshop that I did here.

Gotta love Petal Pizazz!!!

Must keep running now.   I do have a couple of other things I have made recently which need to be photographed, so hopefully it won’t be a gazillion days until i’m back!!

Until then,
Happy Stamping!!

Another Challenge

Hello again!

I’m trying really very hard to get back into my stamping via challenges!! Is it a week since I was here last?  Where’d that go??  Makeesha’s Challenge this week is a colour one.  I love colour challenges!

I have used Great Friend which was in the Summer (spring?) Mini Catalogue and my favourite Organic Outlines.  I predict that Great Friend will make a return in the new Catalogue due out September 1.  I also predict that Organic Outlines will make the retirement list that’s going to be available on 1 August.  :-(

I used the 1 3/4″ circle punch for the Vanilla circle on the card and two little Designer Labels in Choc Chip placed together make the perfect mat!  tricky huh??

Ok, gotta keep running.  I’m up to my eyeballs in doing things for my Christmas {Cards} in July class next weekend!

Until next time,
Happy Stamping!

Abduction and a Challenge..

Nope.  I’ve not really been abducted.  I’d like to say that was the case and it explains my lack of blogging.  Perhaps I could say my creative inspiration has been abducted?  At any rate, once again I apologise for my absence.  We have been having school holidays here.  I have enjoyed having a break from the monotony of the school term, however I am looking forward to some quieter days. Enough said!

So to kick my mojo back into gear I decided firstly to clean my desk (shocking I know!), and secondly to do Makeesha’s challenge this week.  A sketch.  Not my favourite kind of challenge and I’ll admit to it taking longer than it reasonably should have.  I had to swim through the glue that has taken over what used to be my mind!

The sketch:

My interpretation:

So very unexciting but I’ve climbed back in the saddle of creating again and hope to get some more stamping done this week.  Fingers crossed!!

Until next time,
Happy Stamping!
