Goodness it's been a longer absence here than I intended. Life tends to get in the way from time to time and of course one of the first things to suffer is the fun stuff! We've been on school holidays in the ACT and that's always a busy and fun time. Picked up a shiny new iPad a couple of weeks ago too so I've been hooked on Draw Something ever since *smile*. I'm really not that good at it but it's soooo much fun!
Over at Just Add Ink this week Mae has given us a sketch challenge. I haven't been feeling very crafty lately so I knocked out a couple of lame cards earlier in the week in the hope the mojo would return in time for JAI. I'll let you be the judge.
I busted out my yummy Lime Twist papers and some Rich Razzleberry for this one. You can't see it in the pic but there is some lovely shimmer around the little felt roses.
Pop on over to JAI and check out the gorgeous design team inspiration. I hope to see lots of gorgeous entries in our challenge this week.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a fabulous weekend!

It's turned a little chilly here in Canberra this afternoon. Once the sun starts going down you can really feel Autumn is here. Time to dig out my socks and slippers.
I'm just popping in quickly to show you the remaining cards from this post. I forgot to mention that the Crumb Cake layer on each of the cards has been stamped with Versamark using the (retired) Linen BG stamp.
Daffodil Delight with a Tangerine Tango sentiment (because DD didn't show up so well on the linen background)
Not Quite Navy
So there you go, all six cards from my gift package. Hope you like. Thanks for popping by today and as always thank you so much for taking the time to leave me such lovely comments - they really do make my day!

Happy Easter Monday dear friends ~
We're back from our little beach break away! What fun we had...swimming in the ocean, walks to the lake with the dog, jet skiing at Callala Bay, dinner with friends and the highlight for me...visiting the fabulous little spot that is Jindyandy. Oh my goodness there are some terrific finds...antique furniture, toys, a lolly shop and best of all...a huge well stocked craft store. I spent several hours there over the course of two days and managed to pick up a few new bits and pieces.
I did promise I'd show you the contents of my little gift package posted here. I made six cards in all, three birthday and three thanks. I'll come back tomorrow to show you the thank you cards.
As you can see the cards are all the same but for the colour. Base is Black, Vanilla and Crumb Cake mats popped up with Dimensionals and the wide Striped Grosgrain Ribbon threaded behind. I've layered up the flower from Creative Elements and topped each with a pearl (hard to see in these pics) and a little spritz of Champagne Shimmer Mist. The insides were finished with a Vanilla mat and the flower image.
I hope you've all had a wonderful long weekend and indulged in plenty of sweet treats. It's the only time of the year we can really get away with a chocolate breakfast, and we did just that! Such fun.

I'm popping in briefly tonight to show you a little package of cards I recently made for a dear friend of mine. She is always so good to Gorgeous Kid and I really wanted to do something nice for her.
The cards are packaged in an acetate box and I've wrapped some of the lovely Black Satin ribbon around it, and added a Very Vanilla tag and some Hemp twine.
We're off to beautiful Culburra Beach for the long weekend. Hope the weather holds out. It has been lovely the past few days, really mild and warm.
Wishing you all a fabulous Easter, enjoy your days off and indulge in some yummy chocolate! I'll be back in a few days to show you the contents of my gift package above.
