I have another Whimsy Stamps card to share. I am in LOVE with their cutsie images! They just put a smile on my face!
I have done 3 different cards with this image. 2 similar … which I will show you later … and this one!

The snowflakes are punched and lined with navy card and some clear Wink of Stella has been added. See you again soon! Hugs xx
I have done all my Christmas shopping and it is gift wrapped and under the tree! Feeling pretty organised … but still have to think about food for 3 family Christmas events at our place. Christmas Eve is our time with our kids and grandkids. My extended family is going to be away over Christmas so we are having a day together on the 17th Dec … and Gav’s family is coming on the 26th. So … I had better get myself organised … I have cooking to do!
I usually make 4 of each Christmas card … just to be efficient with my limited time. This one I did in two different colour schemes … one mainly gold colouring to match the DSP … the other a little brighter.
A cutie-pie image and some glitter snowflakes on the black background is really eye-catching.

Hi again friends!
Time for another Christmas card … I still have quite a few to share!
This is one of the images that I pre-coloured with my COPICS. When it came to finishing these cards … it was a little tricky wondering what to do with them. Then I found this new sentiment stamp I had recently bought … problem solved!
The snowflakes are die cut from white card stock and then the colour was sponged onto them. An easy option for matching colours!
How are your Christmas cards going? I was finished even before the end of November. It was such a help to have done all the COPIC colouring during our October holiday. Hugs xxx
So much to share … so little time! This is one that I have put on instagram a while ago … but haven’t yet shared here!
I don’t wish to be a broken record … but have I mentioned how much I love my Stamping Bella stamps?
For some reason I found the lighting on this one tricky when I was taking the photos. So … apologies for the bad editing – the card base is WHITE! But … trust me … this card is super pretty!

Yes! A Shaker card! I haven’t done one in forever. But … saw this idea of using more than one window and just had to try it. I am pretty happy with the result! Don’t you just love those cute little heart shaped shaker windows!?

Hi blog friends!
Has it really been over a month??? Really??? Life is just far too busy! Since the two girls have gone back to work after babies … and I have been minding kids across 3 days (not full days … 1 full day, 1 half day & before and after school on another) … I am finding blogging has been almost impossible! I am sorry! But … I will stop with the excuses and share a card ………… You may have seen this on instagram … but I finally got around to blogging it! 😀
I do have plenty of cards to share … even though regular card making has come to a halt recently. But … a couple of stamping days have helped replenish my dwindling card stash.
I hope you stopped for a moment to click on these photos … you will see each one enlarged and better detail of the colouring etc. I just L-O-V-E my Stamping Bella stamps … and am always happy with the result when I use them. Still on my “L” (learner) plates for colouring with Copics … but I am gradually getting there! I did heaps of colouring for some Christmas cards on a recent holiday week away with Sandy while he studied for his exams.
Sandy’s Yr 12 Graduation Ceremony – Sept 2016
Illawarra Christian School – Tongarra Campus (small country school)
Yes … my baby has his final school exam tomorrow (chemistry) … and his schooling days will be over. It is bitter sweet for me. 26 years of being a school mum coming to an end. I am proud of all that all 5 kids have achieved and the lovely adults they have grown into. But … I am sad that a HUGE stage of my life is now over. Done! What am I going to do with myself??? (grin)
Take care everyone! Hugs xxx
Sharing quickly … I know … the story of my life!!!

A busy, emotional week with Sandy finishing school … with just exams now to do! I will share some photos soon! Hugs xx
One of my sweet delights in life is my morning cup of coffee. Not only did my dh (Gav) buy me a ‘u-beaut’ Nespresso coffee machine for Christmas 2 years ago … he also gets up every morning and brings me a cup of coffee in bed! Yes! He is DEFINITELY a KEEPER! 😉
So … I needed to send a card to a couple of people recently and thought … what better than a cuppa as a “pick-me-up”! I hope they got the link!!
The navy and red card backgrounds have been stamped with ‘confetti’ images using silver encore ink. The images are coloured with COPIC markers.
It has been another frantic week! I hope to catch up tomorrow with some replies to your kind comments. Hope you have a great weekend. Hugs xx
