Pink Wishes


I've been missing the challenges over this busy Christmas time- but I needed to make this card for a special lady who's fighting breast cancer and currently undergoing chemo treatment. I wanted to send her a pick me up - so a pretty in pink card is just the ticket. Over at Case Study there are some gorgeous cards inspired by Nina, December's muse.

Materials
cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Very Vanilla.
Inks: Melon Mambo, Versa Mark.
Stamp Sets: SU Fresh Cuts.
Other: Ribbon,hemp twine, buttons, diamantes, gold smooch, shimmer paint, glitter, Jewelery tag.

Ventian Dreams





As some of you will know- I love creating themes for our Christmases in NZ. This year I picked Venice. Here are some photos of the christmas crackers I made. And some of the table decked out with the masks I decorated. We ate an Italian feast... and in classic Italian fashion took all afternoon and evening to eat it, finishing with tiramsu and grappa.
I've also added a little video my mom took of the table.

I'm a Ginger Gem!



I've been so busy I haven't had a chance to blog or even check how my card did in the Vintage Hues Colour Challenge over at Gingersnap Creations. So I finally got chance this morning and Whoo how I'm a Ginger Gem- I'm really thrilled about this x

Gifted


Here's a cool page I made with the photos of last years Christmas Work "Do". I've designed the whole page a pressie- which I think looks cool. Then inside the pressie are all the fun photos we took on the day- we always have such a good time :) Friends and good work colleagues are a gift :)

I'm entering this page into this months Stamp A Memory Challenge, check out the design teams pages Here

And as usual I'd love to here what you think of my page.

Vintage Scene


I've been wanting to do one of the challenges over at Gingersnap Creations for a while- and I finally got chance. This card is for their current colour challeng- which is Vintage Hues.
I've sponged and stamped the scene with Soft Suede and Chocolate Chip, with a hint if Baja Breeze. I wasn't sure how the sky would turn out with the brown tones, but actually I'm pleased with the result.
I've also added Victoria lace and Early Expresso satin ribbon and some smooch and of Dazzling Diamonds.

Whoo Hoo Again!!




I'm thrilled because this week- I'm a Top Pick at Just Add Ink. I'v been working on improving my cards- so I'm thrilled to get Top Pick for a card rather than a scrapbook page.
