A Quiet week on the blog front...

I had great plans for this last week of getting up to date with my blog but fell behind when we all caught colds! Nothing too serious thank goodness and all better now which makes for a much happier household. Nothing worse than a sick hubby and child when all you want to do is curl up in bed.

Anyway, I was able to get a few cards made this week which made it more bearable. So here they are:

The first two were sketch challenges from Split coast stampers which was a lot of fun to try. The 'Celebrate' card, I was trying to do something a bit masculine with DSP and also used some hodgepodge which I love. And the 'welcome' card is for friends of ours who are due any day now and are sure they are having a girl!
If you would like any of the details of these cards please feel free to contact me here and I will post the full list of products used.

More creations as promised...

These are a few more cards I've been making lately. The wild rose card was made for a workshop with Paulette and the girls on Sunday Arvo and they all did beautifully.
The Baroque Motifs card was such a quick and easy card to put together but it is such a stunning set I really don't think you could go wrong when using it. I also jazzed it up with the scallop circle punch and pretties kit- half pearls.

My first 12 x 12" Scrapbooking!

I now know why I am a Cardmaker who scrapbooks! When joining Stampin' Up! My initial reason was to get my scrapbooking up to date. ( Or started for that matter!) But fell in love with cards instead. These pages where my fist real attempt at 12 x 12 layouts and I must admit I am really proud of how they turned out.
My fist goal was to only use Stampin' Up! products, ( and I ended up using quite a few of my favourites in there!) and secondly was to show off my beautiful girl. And yes I am totally biased but she just constantly amazes her dad and I! Hope you like them too.
I'm sorry the photography is a bit ordinary but if you click on the photo's you should see them bigger and clearer.

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope you all had a wonderful day on Sunday either being spoilt by your kids, or spoiling your own mum. I did both and spent a beautiful day on the Central coast with my mum and daughter ( hubby was there as well. Better mention him 'cause he cooked us both breakfast.) And even found time to do some creating as well! Once I've charged the camera batteries some more I'll be able to upload what I've been up to.
