Cardabilities #99

Cards were the creations in the weekend.  After visiting the Embellish It Crop I came home and created a Bereavement Card inspired by Cardabilities Sketch #99 and then decided to have a play with the scraps of the BoBunny range and created 5 mini cards.

It was fun using up the mainly Bo Bunny bits and pieces along with the Glitz paper used as the background for the large card. .

This is what I came up with.


 and the sketch.....
and now for the mini cards...

 At long last it is great to have a stash of ready made mini cards 'just in case'.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Your visit is much appreciated.   Happy Creating!!

Until next time

A Card or Two

Well the weekend came and went and the only creating that took place was a Mother's Day card for my Mum.  We had a lovely Mother's Day due to travelling to Oamaru to meet up with our three girls and two grandsons and J from Dunedin, and my Mum and Dad came too so it was a lovely celebration with four generations.  The dear little boys were just lovely as usual.

My computer has been a challenge tonight - trying to edit some photos but since I have a new 'Windows 8' computer my faithful photo editing programme 'Ulead'  is no longer available to me.  Has anyone got any suggestions of  user friendly photo editing software.  'Gimp' is downloaded but it is completely foreign.  So these photos are unedited.

Anyway here are a couple of cards - the first a 'Thank You' card made for the friend I stayed with recently.  Products were mainly Prima. Made at Autumn Escape.

and Mothers day card made with Prima Stationers Desk Collection.

I had made another 'Get Well' card while away but forgot to take a photo of it. My Best Wishes and healing thoughts will be with Aunty J as she undergoes major surgery this week.

That is all for today.  Hope your week is going well. Thank you for taking the time to visit today.  Would love to know you have been by leaving a comment.

Until next time....

M-I-A... and Ombre Dreams

Where has the last month gone.  I see it is more than a month since my last post.  Well I was lucky enough to attend Autumn Escape at Taupo and then have a little holiday in the Bay of Plenty afterwards so I have been creating but haven't taken any photos yet - it has been all go since returning home on Saturday and now it is back to work - busy busy.

Today I am going to post Blue Fern Studios Collection release and chance to win.

What a delicious collection.  In awe of these gorgeous papers.

Hopefully I will be back soon (by the end of the week) with some pics of the April creations. 

Hope all is well in your part of the world.  Thank you for visiting today.
