Inklings Blog Hop!!

Hi everyone,

Tomorrow night I am taking part in the first ever Inklings Blog Hop, If you have never been on a blog hop before all you need to do is click on the link at the bottom of my post tomorrow night at 8pm and it will take you on to the next blog. There are 20 Inklings taking part and they will all be showing you cards, scrapbook pages and 3d projects based on the Masculine theme. Male/ boy cards are probably what most people struggle with the worst. I know I do!!

We will have Blog Candy to give away, (prizes for those who are not familiar!) all you need to do is leave a comment on every blog and you will go in the draw to win. That means you could win up to 20 male themed cards and pages plus a few other items just by leaving a comment.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to your comments tomorrow night.

Happy Mothers Day

Hi ,
Just want to wish all the Mum's out there a great Mothers Day, hope you are all getting spoit rotten. My day has been great so far, a sleep in, some new pj's a circle scissor and some great gifts the kids had made themselves at school and daycare.
Here is what I came up with for my own Mum, my hubby's Mum and our Grand Mothers.
the first card is one that I made for my Nan & Martins Nan.
Andthe rest show the card folders i made for my Mum and Mother in Law.
The purple set was for my Mum, who is also known to most as Fragon, This was meant to be Dragon but my eldest could not say in properly at age 1, so Fragon stuck.
The blue set is for my MIL Sandra. I hope they like their gifts and have a great day. We dont get to see them todya as they live in Geelong.
Thanks for looking

Baby Summer

Hi again,

I am back to show you a card that my sister Natalie had asked me to make for her best friend who recently had her first baby. Natalie was present at the birth of her newest God-Daughter Summer Jade Price on the 6th of April., which also happens to be my youngest daughter Breanna's birthday. Baby Summer as Breanna likes to call her shares Natalies middle name and is a very beautiful baby. So Congrats to Mal & Brendon.

test run!

Hi again,

I am putting this post here to test my computer skills! As part of the blog hop I am taking part in next week I need to be able to link to the next blog and also the person before me. As I have never done this I am giving it a try.
I am hoping this will be a link to Clare who is a fellow INKling and whose idea the blog hop is.
If any one has problems with this can they please leave a comment here and I will attempt to fix it.

Thanks for looking

I'm Back!!

Hi all, it's been awhile!
We have been so busy since moving last year so my blog was very low on the priority list!
All good now and hopefully i will be a little more consistant with my posts. My aim is to take part in at least one challenge a week. Either colour, sketch or just a inspiration challenge. I would also like to post at least once a week a project or card that Ihave made "just because".
next week I am going to take part in my first ever blog hop, I will be joining my fellow 'INKlings' on a blog hop themed around masculine cards & 3d projects. I am looking forward to this as it is something I struggle with. Cards for men and little boys are not the easiest. I will let you know details later in the week. For now I am going to go make my Mothers Day gifts and will be back soon to post photos and details.

Thanks for stopping by,
