Hang in there!

Hi bloggies!

I made some cards recently to encourage some year 12 friends who began their final exams yesterday. It took a couple of nights in front of the TV to colour them all (12 in total) … but it was very therapeutic! 🙂

So … all the images are COPIC coloured and the backgrounds are done with Distress Oxide Inks sponged over a stencil. Yes … it all took ages … 😁 … but worth it in the end.

Click images to view.

I used a white gel pen to add details to the images. Totally unnecessary … but it does add a nice effect. And … after all … I needed to give myself more to do! 😉

  • Clearly Besotted Stamps – Cheeky Monkey (+ dies)
  • Tiddly Inks – Hang in There (no dies – fussy cut!)
  • CC Designs: Swiss Pixies – Field Fence
  • My Favorite Things stamps – Cascading Scallops stencil

My quick trip to Q’ld was so worthwhile and the funeral was very special. I am so glad I made the effort. I am hoping for a quiet day tomorrow … perhaps even do some stamping … but don’t worry … I still have heaps to share!

Hope you get to Stamp tomorrow too!

Under the Sea

Hi bloggies!

I have had a project going lately … to fill up my stash with some encouragement cards … so you will be seeing a few over the next few weeks. You won’t believe it … but I have nearly finished my Christmas cards too!! So … plenty to share! 😃. Now just need to find the time to blog!!

EC77D633-657D-44DC-9594-3F456F073102

I fossicked around in my goodies and found my metallic gelatos and thought they would be perfect for colouring this fab Stamping Bella background image. They worked beautifully! I used Copics for the images and some distress Oxide ink to add colour to the sea weed die cuts.

With an unexpected trip to Queensland this week … it is going to be tricky juggling all that is in my calendar. Yep … last week quiet … next week quiet … but the week I have to go interstate I have a week of something on EVERY day … AND EVERY night. But …. it will happen! 🙃

  • Faber Castell Metallic Watercolor Gelatos
  • Taylored Expressions – Under the Sea stamps & dies. 
  • Taylored Expressions – In the Word

Hope your week is a little quieter than mine!

Grand Final Champions!

FullSizeRender 6

Hi bloggies!

Well … much to everyone’s surprise except the loyal fans … who knew what Port Kembla was capable of and their proud history … Sandy’s football team WON the grand final on Sept 24!!

IMG_1926

We managed to keep the highest scoring team in the IPL comp and 1st div minor premiers to a 0-0 draw after 90 mins game time plus 30 minutes extra time plus injury time … and so the result was decided by penalties! Not how you like to win a grand final … BUT … it was a tough slog keeping the pressure on for 120+ mins and I feel the better team on the day did win!

Poor Sandy started the game with a hamstring injury that he had seen the Physio about in the week leading up to the game. He had chances and was making an impact but … even though he pushed through the pain for about 70 mins … he ended up having to sub off injured. He was frustrated but he did so well and we were proud of his efforts. A championship medal helped make up for the disappointment of not playing a full game.

Please don’t feel you have to click these links (below) … I just wanted to store them here with the story for my own info … scroll down for today’s card …

Anyway … I just wanted to share the excitement with my blog pals. I hope you will forgive me for the moment of self indulgence! I also wanted to share the card I made for Sandy for reaching the grand final. I wanted to recognise this achievement no matter what the result.

  • Simon Says Stamp – Like a Champion (+ dies available)
  • Lawn Fawn – Gleeful Gardens (+ dies available)
