Luxe gold card with leaf element

I have created another card for this month's Archiscraps challenge. You had to have something moveable or dangling.  I've used another unpaired ear ring on my card to meet the criteria.
It's a very pretty gold leaf.  I have decorated the inside and outside of the card in a very similar way. This card has a luxe look as the base is a shimmery gold cardstock and the other paper I have added has a vintage feel. Paired with gold washi and ribbon I think all of the elements match well.

Card for wedding lovebirds

I have created this card for a wedding. Now someone needs to invite me to theirs. I love weddings. Love is in the air, there's dancing, drinking and eating. What's not to like?


The luxe card and envelope, coupled with lace and ribbon give this card an expensive feel. I have added two gold rings tied in the ribbon to add a special touch.

This card is for Another-freaking-scrappy-challenge. The theme is wedding.

Thanks for looking.

Masculine card

Today I have made a card for a new challenge blog that I have found. It is Cards in Envy.

The challenge for this week is to make a masculine card. I like making these. I have a lot of men in my life and they like my cards.



There are some rules for this blog, no lumpy bumpy and you have to make a card, no tags. I assume a tag on a card is OK.  I've used inking, a border punch and stamping as my techniques.  A muted palette with pops of red.

I'm glad to find a new challenge.  Thanks for looking.

Foxy birthday card

The challenge at Unstampabelles for June is:

#69 To the Men in our Lives TWIST add an animal

To the men in our lives..... TWIST add an animal

Remember, don't use any stamps.

My son Damon turns 20 years old today. I made this card for him. He liked the fox.

He has been studying overseas in Ohio in the United States. (We live in Western Australia). He has been away since New Years Eve last year and he arrived home yesterday. I'm very happy to have him home. He had a great experience.


Let's see what you make. There is a mystery prize on offer this month.

A card using a repurposed item

A CARD

Oh My God!  What an incredible house this is.  Could you live in it? I don't know if I could even step out on to it and I don't have a fear of heights.

This is the inspiration piece at Archiscraps for this month.  You also need to add something that hangs.

Image may contain: sky and outdoor

I made this card. I've used the colours in the pic.  My hanging item is in the centre. Can you guess what it is?  It is a single ear ring made of metal and beads which I have repurposed. I think it looks pretty cool.

Thanks card for Kaisercraft

Feeling a bit sick atm. Winter is coming.

Yesterday I created this card for the May Kaisercraft challenge. Nothing like getting it in on the last day.

If you look below you will see a grid. I had to choose 3 letters to include with products starting with those letters.
I chose p for paper, b for blooms and s for stickers.
I've used 100% Kaisercraft products.



May Blog Challenge

I'm also entering this card in the card challenge CC62 at Soul Scrappers which is to make a thank you card.

Silver Medallists

It is possible that one or two of my readers may be wondering where my Chorus, A Cappella West, came in last Saturday's competition.  I can't believe a week has passed since we crossed the stage.

We placed second with a score of 614 and received a silver medal on a red ribbon. We are all very pleased and we scored consistently well across the four categories of sound, showmanship, expression and music.

Here are a few picks of the competition.




Our two Master Directors also won gold in the quartet competition for the 6th time in a row with their Quartet Hi-Jinx.
