First one in a while

Hi there! Well, I wonder if I'm talking to myself after all this time..................

My poor neglected blog. I really miss popping in here regularly to share what I have been creating (not that I have had any creative time for a while now) and also checking out what everyone else has been up to.

My boys are on school holidays at the moment and that means things are a lot less crazy around here so I have been able to blow the dust off my craft supplies and whip up a quick card to share with you today.

I have used this gorgeous stamp from The Greeting Farm called


available in store at Pink Paper Paradise

New stock arriving soon!


Now I am off to visit a few of your blogs.

Make It Monday #174 with Lacy Sunshine Stamps

Well here we go, heading in to the last two weeks of my boys school holidays.
It has been fantastic, no rushing around, getting lots of large projects ticked off the to do list.

The tropical wet season has decided to make it's presence felt in the last few days and I'm beginning to think it has settled in and has made itself comfy and has not plans to move on anytime in the near future.

I'm ok with that though because it means that the boys are happy to stay indoors and play lego while I craft away in my space.

I created my card for this week's
linky party using a sweet image from our sponsor called  Cupcake Sticky Wings


Isn't she "sweet" lol! 

I coloured her up with my Copics

Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21 (R20 for blush)
Hair: Y21, Y23, Y26 and Y28
Dress: C00, C1, C3

Papers are from My Minds Eye I think.

Make It Monday #173 with Time For Tea Designs

Hi there, welcome back.

Posting two weeks in a row, lets hope that is a sign of things to come in 2014 for me :o)

I felt sorry for my poor Hubby today, back at work after a lovely Christmas / New Year break. Although, I'm thinking he is going to enjoy the rest as he managed to build a fence, take down a palm tree, erect a shade sale over our pool and clear the vegie patch on his days off. Not bad going!

I did help of course but mainly with supplying the food and drinks to keep his energy levels up and by entertaining our three boys so they didn't kill each other out of boredom while these house renovation projects were completed.

I did have lots of fun though over the last few days playing with an awesome gift my wondeful Mum gave me

A Thermomix!!

I have been busy making dinners, deserts, juices, smoothies, yoghurt and icecream, loving it!!

If anyone out there has any good links to thermomix recipes etc I love to see them :o)

But today being Monday that means I am here to share with you my card for this week's 
MAKE IT MONDAY linky party.
