A friend asked me to make the cover for a guest book at her Pop's 90th birthday coming up. She wanted to be able to hand out pieces of A4 paper to guest to write a note to their Pop on and then slip them back in the book. All the books she could find were already bound. So this is what we came up with. I was severely distressed when they said - No ribbon, No rhinestones. What else is there!!!! No ribbon - not even manly colours!!! So I have used rub ons and fabric badges that Kaiser craft have brought out to match their pattern papers.

I needed to make a card for my daughters teacher so I thought i would use this sketch as my basis. I have stamped the bird onto blue cardstock and then paper pieced several parts of the bird using different patterned paper. Then i used UTE on the wings and tail of the bird to make them stand out. I also used UTE on some circles of matching cardstock and then stamped a flower into them. I hope you enjoy, Check out the other entrants into the challenge here

My brother Jeff's birthday was on Saturday and I am always telling him how old he is (he is only 3 years older than me!) I wrote on the inside of the card that because he is getting SOOO old that soon he will be as wise as an owl!
I got a new stamp set on Friday - it is a Kelly Panacci Clear Stamps set of Owls and it is so gorgeous! My only mistake I think I made with the card was stamping the bottom layer of the owl and branch in black! Ah well! I'm still learning. I will endeavour to take a photo of the whole set and maybe of the other stamps I purchased on Friday too! I am really looking forward to make some cool cards with them!
Hope you enjoy your day!

Well I got busy last night to make a card for Mum today! When I left NZ Amy put into a bag some papers that I had been looking at to make a card over there - but ran out of time - so I thought I would put them to good use and make a card for Mum. I also played with the UTEE that Sandy and Amy showed me how to use and made an extra little flower to go in the centre of the large flower. It was fun to play with some new stuff and gorgeous papers.
Happy Mothers Day Mum!!
