Challenge #29 at Get Creative Challenges

Yeah, we've finally finished all the bouquets for my daughter's Feb wedding. We had quite a few to do and it's nice to be able to pack them away ready for use next year. Not finished yet though, we still have the invites, petal cones and fans to do and possibly some more floral decorations. Once the invites are done we can relax a bit and enjoy ?  Christmas prep and family get togethers.
Time now for the next challenge at Get Creative Challenges and this one has a Holiday Theme.
Our sponsor is the wonderful Sami Stamps
Here is my card......

White card for cardbase and die cut from stash
Small scraps of SU Kiwi Kiss cardstock
Scraps of SU Pistachio Pudding cardstock for snowflake border
DP from Francheville 12x12 paper pad - Christmas Basics
Image is from Sami Stamps - Little Star Angel
Sentiment from SU stamp set - Versatile Christmas
Nestie Die - Curved Rectangles
Memory Box Die - Gabriella Border
Copic Markers
D/S tape roller, foam dots and tacky glue

Okay, I'm bushed and its late. Hubby has been away overnight and has just rung to let me know exactly where he. He is still at least an hour away so we will be eating around 9:30  - 10 pm tonight. At the moment all I want to do is sleep so will go and make a coffee and hopefully wake up a bit.
Before I leave you to your day or evening let me encourage you to come and share your Holiday creations with us by linking up on the new challenge. A great prize to be won from our sponsor.
Love to check out your fab works of art.
Thanks for stopping by,
Take Care,
Hugs, Sandy

Challenge #152 at 613 Avenue Create

Our second to last day of Spring and it's been a lovely day. We've had a few bad windy days lately and a major fire up north of the city. At least two deaths, many injuries and lots of loss of property, crops,and livestock. Heartbreaking for those involved and made even harder in the lead up to Christmas.
Before I move on and share with you regarding the new challenge at 613 Avenue Create, I would like to send thoughts and prayers to all who have been affected by this tragedy.
So..... the new challenge at 613 Avenue Create starts today and the theme is Anything Goes with an Optional Twist of using Paper Piecing Technique.
Our sponsors are Bugaboo Stamps and SLS Lines
I've used an image from Bugaboo Stamps and I'm also using the Twist..
Here's my card.......

White cardstock for basecard and mattes and to print image out
SU green (not sure which one as I couldn't find a pack (it's either a discontinued one or I'm just out of it!)
DP from Couture Creations 12x12   paper Pad ~ Vintage Christmas
Image from Bugaboo Stamps - Deacon-Piper  - I've paper pieced his hat using DP and cardstock, his hair with cardstock, his tunic -with DP, belt, hands and boots with cardstock.
The image does come with some music notes either side of it but because I fussy cut the image out and then adhered it to a diecut rectangle, I drew them in by hand so they are not accurate as per the original image
Sentiment is from SU stamps set - Christmas Cuties
Dies - Die-namics ~ Pierced Rectangles and a part of a Kaisercraft die
Copic Markers
Memento Tuxedo Black inkpad
D/S tape roller, tacky glue and foam dots

Hubby has just returned home after being out for a few hours looking at Volkswagon vehicles in town - an anuual show.
Please stop by the challenge blog and check out all the wonderful DT inspirations and we would love to see your creations as well. So come join in the fun of the challenge and be in the running for a wonderful prize from our sponsors.

Time to hang the wreath - Challenge 87 at Crafting From the Heart

Hi all, hope you've had a great weekend. Mine was a bit up and down with not feeling 100%. Our DIL left to join our son in Japan to start their two week holiday before going onto Vietnam to surprise her family for another two weeks. Youngest daughter and my friend Rose came over today to once again do some more crafting for the wedding. We are nearly finished making all the bouquets, only have to bind them and add some ribbon tails. Then.....still have flowers for the groom and groomsmen and all the parents & grandparents. We are getting there! Lucky me woke up with a runny nose as well so I'm hoping it won't go into a full blown cold.
Anyway, onto sharing my DT card for the start of the new challenge at Crafting From the Heart. We are an Anything Goes challenge blog and this week our sponsors are Dis Digi Stamps and Beccy's Place.
We would love to see your creations this challenge so come join in the fun and be in the running for a super prize.
Here's my card.......

Time for me to go get another tissue, lol and maybe a nice warm drink. Silly cold must be the fickle weather we are having. High temps for a week and now cold windy days, we even had rain overnight!!! It's nearly summer here so should be a bit more consistent than that!!!
Anyway, thanks for stopping by and we really would like to catch your entries this week so please stop by and link up one of your masterpieces!!!

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Another scorcher here in Adelaide, didn't manage much sleep last night and also had our 13 month old granddaughter sharing the bed with me. She woke up once during the night so I gave her some water and thankfully she went straight back to sleep. We started the morning off with a trip to the accountants to finalize our tax for 2014/15 and I forgot one of the details of a share sale so still have that to do tomorrow. A visit to Mum and then back home to go to a friend's for craft but we decided to go see a film instead since there was just the two of us today.
So here I am posting a bit late for the new challenge that starts today at Crafty Girls Creations. Hope you pop over to the challenge blog and check out all the fab DT inspiration using images from our sponsor Sami Stamps
