Oh what a hoot! My SU upline, Angela Sargeant, sometimes holds cyberstamps through her Elite Stampers group. I’ve always wanted to take part, but it never really seemed to fit with my diary. Also they are usually at night and I have difficulty creating at night because of poor light/vision problems. Well yesterday’s began at 10.00am so I decided not to head to the garden, inspite of it’s neglected look. And took part in this cyberstamp. I had lots of fun. This is the first entry that I made. We were required to use a sketch (another first for moi) I’ve never created anything from a sketch before. The sketch was from Kimberley Van Diepen who can be found here: (http://stampinbythesea.com/youve-been-waiting, and this is my take one the sketch (don’t forget to double click on the photos to enlarge)
This is a photograph of our grand daughter, Tannikah. It was taken at the Brisbane Airport whilst waiting to board a flight to Perth. I’m pretty sure it may have been the first time that she flew as an ‘unaccompanied minor’. To think, she has been flying that route alone since she was six years old. She truly is a wee Jetsetter.
Recipe for Success:
Cardstock – Night of Navy, Wild Wasabi, More Mustard (soon to be retired) and Very Vanilla
Stamp Set – Lacy and Lovely
Buttons – More Mustard
DSP – Regals Colour Family pack (Night of Navy)
My second challenge was to use as much ‘texture’ as I could on a layout, and the colors – Sahara Sand, Raspberry Ripple, Pool Party and Very Vanilla. Eeeekkk! I’m not wildly into way out texture embellishments. Don’t get me wrong! I love texture, that’s what’s holding me back from experimenting with MDS, but for some reason, I don’t think that, this quite worked for me…….texture wise that is! But I love the pics and the finished product.
I’m just blessed to have the two best looking grand children to work with.
I hope you love my creations as much as I loved creating them.
Until next time, happy stamping.

I really love this stamp set so don’t understand why I’ve not used it more. The details in the flower and leaf is so clear and yet intricate. Love. Love. Love.
Just as my own personal ‘celebration’ of SU’s announcing that both Pool Party and Island Indigo are joining the ranks of the permanent colour families I designed this card to compliment the Summer Solstice stamp set. And yes! There’s even a butterfly! What a surprise coming from Moi.
This is one of the cards that my Tenterfield and Stanthorpe classes will be doing this month. So if you live in the area and want to create five beautiful cards and have a day of creative fun and quite a few laughs, contact me for venue details.
Until next time

I loved this little toys when I was a wee kid. I remember my parents buying my first pinwheel which was plastic and pinned to a long wooden skewer. I remember I was at the Lismore Show and I was allowed a doll on a stick or a pinwheel. I chose the pinwheel. It took me ages to choose just the right colors that would whirl in the wind and make this amazing pattern. (so much more sensible, to me, than a stupid Kewpie doll on a stick!!!).
Well SU have released a new Sizzlet die for a cute little pinwheel. It loves to be on cards and scrap pages. Here I have done a SLO of my son Tony and grandson Xavier (I’m not too sure about it but I think Xavier loves his daddy big much).
(don’t forget to double click on the pic to get a closer look)
The DSP in this LO is now discontinued (Under the Big Top) however I’ve thought that it worked well with these pics and teamed it with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch.
(close up of the Bunting made from the Pennant punch)
Here is the star of the page. A close up of the Pinwheel Die. How stinken’ cute are they????
So have you guessed what I’ve used to replicate a type of ‘fence’ along the bottom of the page? It’s the Modern Label punch, cut in half. Brilliant! Get those punches out and start creating, not just on cards but scrap pages as well.
Remember! Sale-a-bration finishes this Friday (23/3/13). If there’s something that you are wanting for free, then call/email me your order and I’ll have it delivered to your door!!!!
Until then happy stamping.
