quickie post ....

Just dropping by to say hi and a quickie update.....

Whats news in this part of the world? well Ive applied with my friend Jenny to be part of Christmas Handmade market stall on Dec 18th . We don't if we have been accepted yet but we are in planning stages. Ive been working on some collages and card ideas as well as making some sewn things like pincushions. Its all very exciting!

I'm off to Heathcote for crafty girls weekend away this weekend, cant wait! more fun, lots of laughs and great food for sure !

2 weeks later I'm flying to Brisbane to attend the Gutsy girls art day. Jenny and i have taken some time off work and will spend 5 days up there . the stitches and craft show is on too , so it will be another wonderful mini holiday.

Lucy has her dress entered in the ag art show tomorrow , so keep your fingers crossed!!

Charlie has just returned from a 4 day school trip to London. While she was there she texted me to say how she would like to catch up with some of the English rellies. I texted over Paul's Auntie J's no and lo and behold next thing she caught two trains and spent a lovely few hours with her.
I found out later that that she snuck off during free time on the tour.
My Miss Independence!

Other than that here is my metal card for Inkurable stampers, using my foil background.


And then some Birthday cards....
I love this one, the background is all layered napkins and the butterflies [from Blue Bazaar but their website is under construction] are just gorgeous....The back side actually looked better but i broke the body pulling it apart. However i did manage to rescue the antennae....

This one the text background is form the packing off some lovely flowers i ordered, probably Prima ones...


and this i used twinkling's on the vintage Japanese prayer book paper. They work beautifully , it just sucks it up....

and lets not forget Halloween

Smokin hot..


House of fun....Traded.


Waiting forever....

Sure is a mixed bag....great artwork Jen. Lots going on in your life these days. Your weekend with your arty/crafty friends...always a great catch up. I usually come home with artisit overload. So much to do...so little time.
The trip to Brissie sounds fun (especially as it coincides with the craft fair!!!).

Have fun! I'm sure there will be lots of inspiration.
