Kristina's Colour Challenge #26.

It's time for another one of Kristina's Colour Challenges and the colours this time are: Rose Red, Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi and Whisper White.
I don't have any Wild Wasabi so I had to substitute with Certainly Celery and this is my card......

I wasn't going to do any card making last night because I was tired and just felt like blobbing on the couch and watching mindless T.V.....which is exactly what I did until around 10pm when I decided to quickly check if there were any emails and go to bed. Just before I turned off the computer I checked what was new on Kristina's blog. Big mistake! Of course I HAD to play along with the challenge and I ended up heading to bed at midnight! Anyway, hope you like the card and thanks for visiting me.
Stamps: Time well spent. Inks: Stazon black, Rose Red, So Saffron, Bashful blue, Whisper white. Cardstock: Certainly celery, Bashful blue, So saffron, Rose red, Water colour paper. Accessories: Sweet Shop ribbon. Tools: Mat pack (paper piercing), 1.3cm circle punch, small corner rounder (guard off).

Happy Birthday Poppa!

Gosh, it feels like it has been absolutely ages since I've posted anything to my blog!! I am so sorry that I have been out of action for so long but it has been such a struggle with all of us being sick.
Anyway, we are much better and I am finally getting back on track.
I made this card for my Stepfather, who is the most wonderful Stepdad and Poppa. I always find boys cards soooo hard to make but I am pleased with the way this one turned out.

Miah (miss 4) stamped and coloured some images to represent herself and her sisters, which I stuck on the inside of the card.
Needless to say Poppa loved his card and made such a big deal about the coloured animals that we had a very happy and proud little 4 year old girl!!!
Thanks for visiting and I will be back soon with another card for you to see.

Stamps: Artifacts, It's your birthday. Inks: Chocolate Chip, Cardstock: Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Mellow Moss, Recollections DSP. Accessories: Moss Gingham Ribbon, Vintage Brads.

An update.

Hello everyone.
I thought that I should give you an update about what has been going on around here lately, just in case anyone was wondering where I had gotten to.

Well here goes......

We all came down with VERY bad colds which I still haven't been able to shake off yet and Miah, my eldest, got a case of Chicken Pox.
Then Miah was playing in the backyard and decided to go down the slide sitting on her knees and peeled back a large amount of skin on the top of her foot as a result!! (friction burn!). So she has needed an antibiotic ointment and clean dressings to help that heal.
At the same time Grace got an ear infection and is on antibiotics to clear that up AND Emily fell off our bed, while I was running them a bath, and put her tooth all of the way through her lip which needed stitching!!!
Of course that just leaves beautiful baby Hayley who is now sporting a terrible case of Chicken Pox!!
Can you believe all of that?!?!?! Because I have been living here and even I have trouble believing that it has all happened in my house over the last 3 weeks!!!
Anyway, now you are updated and because I am feeling a little bit better I hope to be back making cards and posting them here within the next couple of days....hopefully!
