Just for you!

As New Year approaches things are warming up. I think today was about 36 degrees here in Melbourne. Monday is up to 38! Then some nice ones at 25-28. 

I came up stairs to have a play and my brain just couldn't get going so I had abit of a clear out and found a few things I needed to do something with. One was some strips of c/s that I intended to make some rosettes with. These I just cut a piece of c/s that I think was about 4cm wide from a A4 piece c/s, I cut two out of it ( one length just wasn't long enough to get right around to form it) and scored at every 1cm.  

So I finally put that together and I had a little play with a Unity stamp set. I'm not familar with the name of it, as it was a friends. A Christmas set, thats about all, with a little bird on a branch.

I haven't played with using a Nestabilitie die and leaving some of the image out. I probably could of started with something abit easier but... Go hard or go home! lol.

So this is what happened.
Bling is coloured by copics and the bird is coloured by watercolour pencils.

As fireworks start to be set off for the kids early show I will say good night and God Bless and May all your dreams come true in 2012.

Thanks for looking.

Snow globe

Hi all,

Things are heating up here, about time! :)

I wanted to share a card I made recently unfortunately stupid people who won't be mentioned here forgot to take a good photo before giving it to the person it was meant for! Ugh! So this photo is an almost finished card.  

This image is one a recieved as a challenge image so I killed two birds with one stone, so to speak but I knew what I wanted to do and who it was going to right away. All the basic shape is off a bought card someone gave me a few years ago and found again when I was having a clear out and move around. It was hard to do the middle as I had no nesties that were that size and it isn't quite a circle.

Papers are Kaisercraft and Ribbon is Wisteria Wonder ruffled ribbon (122973) and a lovely Stamp It sentiment.

The bear is coloured with copics and all layered up. His little hat is puffed up with liquid pearls. Lots of others were using liquid applique but I wanted something abit different and I sprinkled ultra fine glitter over the top. He came up really cute.

If you are interested in getting this ribbon just leave a message and I can get back to you

Thanks for looking
