Quick catch up!

The weeks have been passing by so quickly haven't they?
It feels like only yesterday that I posted some creations on my blog, but it was almost a week ago!
So a quick catch-up on a few cards I have made recently for Sweet Pea Stamps.

This first card uses a cute little image from Samantha Rawling's sheet #3, plate #125.

Next up is a set of three Christmas cards. A little early I know, but it is never to early to get a head start on these things right?

There are so many things going on over at the Sweet Pea Stamps blog at the moment, so be sure to pop over and check it all out!!!

Finally I just wanted to say thank you to all the wonderful comments I received for the Sweet Pea Stamps blog hop.  I read and appreciated every single one of them!
Until next time
Take care

She Art's good to get messy

Hi everyone
I am a little bit excited tonight. Today I started and finished my first canvas from the She Art Workshop.
I have absolutely loved watching  the first week of videos and tutorials from Christy Tomlinson, and had even more fun creating. So much so that I couldn't even wait to take a photo of my canvas in the I apologize for the dodgy lighting. I will update with better photos and close-ups tomorrow :)

So please meet my first girl....I am pretty happy with my first attempt.

I had soooo much fun creating this canvas.  There were no rules, it was just pure messy fun and I loved every minute of it.  Once I started I couldn't stop lol.  I am thinking I will watch the next lot of videos tomorrow, so no doubt there will be a new girl by the end of the weekend.
Thanks for stopping by

Busy, busy, busy!

No rest for the wicked...or so they say.
I have been  busy, busy, busy.
I have been working on my absolutely delightful Half Tart from Lime Tart.
Here is a little sneak peek of on layout I have made..all will be revealed soon.

I have also been working on a couple of little sewing projects, which I am hoping to finish off today.  I will pop some piccies up when they are completed.  I have signed up for a mixed media class, which starts today...yay!! I have made some little (last fact still drying) Easter gifts for Miss Emily's Preschool teachers.

 Busy, busy, busy, but I love it. 
Wow...I have rambled on this morning.  I had better go and make the beds before we head off to school.

A card or two or three

Hi everyone.
I am back today with a few Sweet Pea Stamp shares.

This first one is one of my favourite cards to date.
It is Meredith Dillman's Broken Angel. It can be purchased by itself or together with three other gorgeous images on Sheet #5, Plate 107. 

These next two images were more of a challenge to myself. I love the colour purple, but find it very hard to work with. So in all my wisdom I decided to colour a couple of cards using purple.

These images can be found on Meredith Dillman's Sheet#3, Plate #94.

I hope your Monday is treating you well.
I will be back again soon.

Our little athlete

Just had to pop on today with a quick share.
Kayla particpated in her first athletics carnival today.  I am so glad that I found the time to go and watch her, she had an absolute blast.
Because she is only in Year 1 it was more just fun activities, and letting the kiddies have a go at a few events.
Here are a few happy snaps from the day.
 I was so thrilled for her when she won the 70m race, and her little beaming face made the whole day worth it. It just goes to show that even though she has had trouble with her legs and feet, that nothing is going to hold this girl back. Oh and can I say, boy can this girl jump.  Considering she has never stepped foot near a long jump pit, check out the air that she got!
I had a few other things that needed to be done today, but I was really glad that I was there to spend this time with her.  At the end end of the day, she told me how much she loved having me there.  
So special.
