Can Ya Doodle?

Can Ya doodle?? Yes of course. Everyone can do it, it all comes down to how confident you are at putting it on a card. They key is put pen to paper and DON'T hesitate.

Doodling is this weeks challenge #31 over on the High Hopes Blog.
I have chosen one of my favourite stamps and I have doodled around the edge using a black millennium pen, they are waterproof and are good to use with any colouring medium. (Also good for drawing in missing lines of your stamped image)
I have stamped this gorgeous elephant in black stazon ink and coloured her with prismacolor pencils and blended with odourless mineral spirits. It is all layered on to designer paper from Junkitz's Salsa range.
Hope you like this card it was quick and easy to do.

Until Next Time

High Hopes Challenge #30

I am back from my holiday and I am straight back into creating cards. The first one I have done is for the High Hopes Challenge... The theme... One for the boys.
I have used Froggy Gift. This is one of my favourite stamps and I just love this bright colour scheme. The colours of course come directly from my paper choice. These designer papers are from Scenic Route.
I have stamped the image using Black stazon and coloured in using Prismacolor Pencils blended with odourless mineral spirits. The coloured cardstock is Cranberry Crisp from SU and the green is Bazzill. I cut the stamped image in a circle using nestabilities.
The sentiment I used is a rub on.
In Australia you can buy these stamps at Heavenscent Crafts. If you would like to check out the Challenges go to the High Hopes Blog

Until Next Time

Viva Las Vegas

Hello everyone. I hope this post finds you all well. I have just arrived back in Australia after 3 weeks in the USA. I started off in San Francisco and then spent nearly 2 weeks in Las Vegas. My husband slipped and hurt is back and I ventured to the craft stores and Viva Las Vegas Stamps it was probably a good thing I was on my own as I spent lots of money. Whilst in Las Vegas I had an absolutely fantastic couple of days with Laura Canale, (aka Lov'n life n Vegas on SCS). Laura would have to be one of the nicest most gorgeous people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. We had such a nice girly day. Then we had a Barbeque at her home the next day.

Here is Laura and I at the Fabulous Las Vegas sign

Here is the card I gave Laura, it says 'Let's do Lunch'.
Stamps by My Favorite Things.
Not only did we do Lunch we also did morning tea. We also went to the Local scrapbook store where Laura teaches card making classes. Before long our day was over. It just went so fast. Time really does fly when you have fun.
We still had a chance to catch up the next night for dinner and here is Laura and I in her kitchen.

Laura is a kind hearted wonderful lady and really talented stamper you can check out her blog 'Wish you Were Here' in my Favourite Blogs on the right or click HERE
Thanks Laura for a great couple of days. Here's to new found Friends.

Until Next Time
