Halloween couple card

Hi, this is my 2nd Halloween card for today (thinking it's my last Halloween card but I feel I said that a few cards ago lol). The gorgeous digi couple is from Tiddly Inks (I have created a wedding card using them too as a bride and groom, watch this space as it's one of my favourite cards I've made so far!)

Anniversary card

Not sure my hubby is going to think this is masculine enough for his anniversary card lol, but not to worry. One year I made him a card with the sentiment "I'd catch a grenade for you" because he hated that song hehe, so I guess I like to play around with him a little bit on our wedding anniversaries. 16th November will be our 16th year, I just don't know where the time has gone! I still love him more than ever!

The gorgeous little bear is from Di's Digi's, isn't he just the cutest? I've just recently used his brother with a top hat, I just love these bears!

Dinosaur card

Hi, thanks for coming by. I've made a card using some free dinosaur papers and stamps from a magazine and a fair bit of Flourish with a Bling.

Halloween witch card

Do you ever make a card and there's something about it you don't think is quite right? I created a card yesterday with a great sketch from Delightful Challenges (see below for link) and an absolutely gorgeous free ghost digi from SK Digis but I didn't love my card so thought long and hard before just changing the image and changing the sketch angle and now I think it's really cute, that's all it took lol!! This witch is from Crafts & Me and I doodled the spiderwebs. So my simple advice is next time you don't like your card, just swap a couple of things, it might make all the difference. I'm going to show both cards just so you can see what I mean:

Skateboarder boy card

Hi and thanks for coming to see my card today.

I thought it was time I made another boy card as I'm a bit slack with making cards for boys, I love girly things (so I have a girly card to upload straight after this if I get time lol). I coloured these guys with copics and inked the background with a homemade cloud template for the sky. I made one of the boys smaller and flipped him so he looks like he's in the background, hopefully he doesn't just look like a smaller version of the large boy lol.

This gorgeous boy digi is from Jellypark Friends and the profits for this particular stamp go to charity which is wonderful.





I created this card with the following challenges in mind:

Make a wish Sarah Kay card

Hi and welcome to my blog,

Firstly I'd just like to say quickly how excited I am to have followers! I started my blog a few months ago so I could join in some challenges, I didn't think anyone would ever want to follow me lol! I am so thrilled you do and maybe if I get 100 followers my business buddies (which are also my besties) might let me giveaway a little Flourish with a Bling (FWAB) candy, oh how I'd love to do that for you!

Today I've created a card using a few FWAB goodies - Lee's tree & grass, Trent's fence & sun (Up in the sky set), please visit www.flourishwithabling.com.au if you'd like to see more. We are a wholesale company but we may have a stockist near you (even internationally) and if your favourite store doesn't sell FWAB we'd love you to pass on our details.

A Fairy Garden card

Hi,

Today I've created a little fairy garden although it is still a card (not sure I have an envelope to fit it though lol). I was lucky enough to win this gorgeous new Elisabeth Bell digi stamp a couple of weeks ago so I have been wanting to do her justice. I'd like to give a shout out to the wonderful blog http://www.digibellsdt.blogspot.com.au/ where I won randomly as part of a blog hop - woohoo!! I have used plenty of Flourish with a Bling so please see details underneath the photos (I have done a side on view also so you can see the different depths of the scene), hope you like it:


FWAB used:
Lee's tree & grass x 2
Trent's fence & grass
Taylah's Toadstools
