Blue Dancing Couple card (Scrapper's Delights image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I love this time of year. It's summer here in Australia, school's just gone back, Valentine's day is coming, our footy season is about to start, my Birthday is in Feb which means crafty pressies yay! Easter is not too far away. So much to be excited about! And when it comes to cardmaking my favourite kinds are Valentine's Day, Spring and Easter - they're all about red and pink and other pretty colours, hearts and flowers, I love it!! But then after saying all that I've gone and made a royal blue card haha!

I cheated with this image (well, not really cheating, I'm not saying I coloured it) as I printed the coloured image instead of the digi. I loved how they coloured it so wanted to see how it would come out. The image is from Scrapper's Delights. Her dress looks so shiny doesn't it, wish I could colour this good!

Cute, Sweet, Gorgeous Girl card (Crafts & Me/Hannah Lynn image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Isn't this image beautiful from Hannah Lynn at Crafts and Me? I know I'm always saying how gorgeous my digis are but I guess that's why I bought them/chose them hehe.

I printed her out in a sepia colour so I could make her hair blonde. I can't seem to colour blonde hair when the image is black as I always want to make it darker. 

I have used a Flourish with a Bling Red Chloe pearl flourish. The set comes with 2 flourishes and some extra red pearls to add to your project and is only $2AUD for the whole set during February! I have also used an Elise flower and Jack olive green vine leaves. Everything in the store is $2 this month, I hope you'll click on our store name to check it out.

Puppy Love to the Vets

Hi Crafty Friends,

My mum had to put her 16 year old dog down last week and she was really pleased with how sweet the Vet and staff were to her, bringing her a cuppa and making sure her little Benson was comfy in his basket and so forth. She was saying how she wanted to buy them a tin of biscuits for morning tea to show her appreciation and I said I could make a card for her to take along too. Apparently they all loved it (and the Scottie Terrier shaped shortbread biscuits and tin we luckily happened to find).

I got this digi from a place called something like Can You Dig It but I have googled and can no longer find them, sorry as I know some of you would like him, he's such a sweetie isn't he? 

The flower and pearls are from Flourish with a Bling who have a sale on in February - every product is only $2 each, if interested please click on the name to be taken to the store to check out the bargains.
