Inkspirations Sketch Challenge 17

LOVE LOVE LOVE Makeesha Byl and her challenges however haven't been able to play for so longggg. I needed to add to my Christmas card total so used her sketch to make this. I totally missed the deadline but it was fun all the same.

I have recently found Flower Soft and this one is called Vintage Christmas. I really enjoyed giving this card its 3-D effect with this. The stamps are all from All That Scraps.

So here is her sketch and my take on it.

Thanks for looking have a lovely day. LOL Tamara

Mojo Monday 117

Well its all happening! I have had the most amazing albiet VERY busy week but am thrilled that I haven't been into the office and am officially an at home MUM! The kids have all had tons of stuff on with school and kindy and I have been able to attend it all and even made genie bags with one of my daughters class. So much fun and I am LOVING it.
So suprise suprise my eldest daughter was invited to another party last night and she had a ball. They had a fish and chip night with a movie with lots of time for the girls to play and it was a lot of fun. What a great idea for a party (well done Rebecca!!).
So I used this weeks Mojo sketch for her card and the new Tall Tales DSP. The stamp is Apple Emma from All That Scraps and I have used Crackle Accents on the cut out apples just for something different. I have also made a bag which is a Lauren Meader Template called "its on the house".
Here's the sketch and my take on it

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend. LOL Tamara

Another Christmas Card - A CASE

I Love love love this card. It is a CASE (sorry I don't have your name, but you are brilliant and I thank you!). I love how the colours work and that I finally used my cuttle bug for some embossing instead of just for my nesties for a change. I love the pearls and the use of ribbon. Am looking forward to sending this one out.

I have used real red with pink pirouette and tons of dazzling diamonds. I have also used the Christ is Born stamp set.

Thanks for looking LOL Tamara

Flight of the Butterfly and a Basket

I know, I know.... Christmas is fast approaching and I am still making Birthday cards and accessories. Unbelievable but my eldest daughter has another 2 parties to go to tomorrow. I did enjoy myself of course as I was able to use my new butterfly punch with the Flight of the Butterflies stamp set. Too easy and lots of fun. I have made the basket using guidelines from Lauren Meaders "timeless templates" called Basket Basics.

I have also used the Tea Party DSP and co-ordinated buttons now retired.

Thanks for looking once again

Mojo Monday 116

I have a couple of postings for tonight just to once again prove that I have not been idle. Its all happening now. Christmas is around the corner and I am busy preparing for a very exciting break back home (to sunny Perth) and I have yet to complete and send out my Christmas cards which in past years I have definately finished by now. So I will be keeping things brief.

Here is this weeks Mojo sketch and my take on it. I have once again used the Ski Slope DSP and the Snow Swirled stamp set. I have also used the gorgeous new Real Red Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon from our Summer Mini. Just loving it.

Thanks for looking and have a lovely weekend. LOL Tamara

A Very Special Birthday

Wow the kids have actually left me along enough to share another post with you today. Who would have thought??? This gift went to a very very special lady in my life who had a birthday yesterday. I sure hope you had a lovely day yesterday Cherie. We LOVE you!!!!

Cheries' favourite colour is blue hence why I used Temping Turquoise and as I had the Pixie Pink out already I thought why not. The house is another of Lauren Meaders Timeless Templates called "Home Made" and I have used the Swiss Pixies "Heidi Among the Flowers". It was intended to be very girly as I am very conscious that Cherie is surrounded by blokes at her house!!!!

Thanks again for looking. We are off to visit with Santa for our annual photo. Wonder how many kids will cry this year. Its always one of them. LOL Tamara

Mojo Monday 115

I managed to have a chance to play with the latest Mojo Monday 115 sketch. You'll have to excuse the colours though. Yes I like bright colours IRL but to put pixie pink and green galore together was a wee bit of a challenge for me. There is a reason and I am not sure you want to hear it but sorry here goes anyway. At our church we run a program called IFG (ICONZ for Girls) and our uniform colours are bright pink and bright green. So when it was requested that I under take the task of providing a gift for our leader I of course had to colour co-ordinate it. We have been running just under 3 school terms now and its for 8-11 and over year old girls and is a branch of the Girls Brigade. We have a fabulous leader (Hi Jo) who does an amazing ton of work to provide fun, adventure and fellowship to both community and church girls. I tell you as one of the leaders I have done things that I never would have tried before and in the process have made some amazing connections with young girls. Praise God we are making a difference in their lives!

Well enough about that. If you would like to know more about the program you can email me

So here's the sketch and my take on it. I have used the new SU Kaleidescope DSP and new stamp set For Everything.

Hope you have a lovely weekend and thanks for looking.
