Mad For Markers DT Call

Ok... so here goes... Mad for Markers currently has a DT call up and soon as I am totally addicted I thought I might as well apply. So first up I have the same CC Designs stamp from yesterday's post but this time using a mix of colours and made up into a card. I also used my Copics to colour the tips and centre of the flower.
The second card for tonight was my first ever Magnolia that I have coloured, and I used the scraps from the other 3 layouts that I am sharing tonight to create the card for the Magnolia.

Thanks for stopping by and good luck to all the girls applying.

Blokey Stuff

Ok this blogging thing seems to have started to become a habit..woohoo lol....
Tonight I've got two cards to share with you, both of which I created for Fathers Day this year. I loved these two images, again some free digis from somewhere which are just great for real masculine cards. I teamed the images up with some black and brown cardstock, a cuttlebug embossing folder, black grosgrain ribbon, Cosmo Cricket mini alphas and my copics of course, lol...
These cards were so quick and easy but yet really effective... and blokey lol.... I don't know about you but I usually struggle to make blokey cards... they usually just don't look masculine enough.

All Things Pink

So tonight I have a really quick post for you... with both some scrapping and copics inspiration.

The first I am sharing with you tonight is just some colouring using "Pinks". This was my first attempt at using Pinks... I used so many colours and shades of pink on this little CC stamp and I really like the result.... I haven't made this little one into a card or anything as yet... I was just 'practising' on this one.... its always good to have some pre-coloured images ready on hand to make a quick card if need be.

The scrapping inspiration for tonights post was created using the Imaginisce collection and was really great for cutesy girly things... the photo in this layout is of my niece a few years back at one of her first physie comps...

I'll be back again tomorrow, some more goodies to share.

Challenge Heaven

A couple of months back I joined in on a CyberCrop over at Challenge Heaven... which was lots of fun and the girls over there on the forum are really lovely... it was a good couple of nights chatting away and scrapping... and it was even better as Sheree and I got together to do the Blind Scrap that they did live on the Saturday night.... It was my first Blind Scrap and I loved it... the page that I created was just awesome. The page is definitely one of my favs!
Product used in this layout was the KaiserCraft stir it up collection.
The second page I have for you today was a sketch challenge, and the other criteria was to use the colour blue..... there is nothing sweeter to me than these baby blue eyes. I actually a prize for this layout... so I was very happy with the result.
Product used in this layout is from the Bella Ever After Collection...
I'm out of here for the night... off to Copics Anonymous with the girls...

Boy stuff....

I know... I know... you are in shock... LOL... Yep my second post in a week.... well I'm going to keep them coming... I figure that if I make a conscious effort every couple of days to do an update it just might become a habit.... fingers crossed.

Todays post is about all things boy... hope these inspire you .....

My first share for today is some fun copics colouring... of a card I made for a 2nd Birthday and it uses the Hero Arts Monster stamps, which I just love for boy cards. I kept the card nice and simple with just some Kraft Cardstock,and the stamps coloured, cut out and the sentiments stamped directly onto the cardstock.
Some scrapbooking inspiration for you today is of our little man enjoying his Christmas present.... hooning around the back yard... he loves his Ben 10 4wd... and we love watching him play in it for hours..... he is a complete dare-devil and seems to have no fear...he has also worked out where to position in the back yard, so that he can 'smoke it up'. I can't believe how quickly he is growing up and how much he is learning. He takes my breath away and makes me laugh each and every day ... I love you B! Well thats it for me today...I'll be back again soon....

MIA...I'm back

Ok ok... so it seems that thing called life has taken over again and blogging was low on priorities for me... oops... sorry.... but in saying that it seems my posts haven't been missed either......

Anyhoo... Well because I've been so slack with my posts that means I have lots to share with you over the coming weeks.
When I last posted back in May I was off to SIA... well SIA was inspiring, and tiring.... but it started me on a new addiction... Copic Markers... I have been steadily increasing my stash of these and now NEED to attend Copics Anonymous once a month ;-) lol... with some great girls who obviously share the love for Copics also... Thanks to Sammi from Mad For Markers who facilitates this group lol....

Copics...takes me back to being a kid again, when I use to just love to sit and colour in... (thanks for the reminder of this the other day Mum xo)

A Copics Certification Course has just been announced for Sydney in November... which I am hoping to attend.... fingers crossed x.

I will share with you today a quick little notecard that was one of my first creations I put together using something I had coloured in with my Copics. The photo is not the best, as I was already at the post office and about to stuff it into the envelope when I realised I hadn't photograhed it. I'm not sure of where I got the image from, it was a free digi stamp that I stumbled across and saved.
I haven't given up on Scrapping.... I'm still doing it... so today I have a layout to share with you, which uses the TPC Studios Girlfriend collection, along with some 2Crafty Chipboard and some feathers for something a little different.

This layout is of a very special friend and I taken late last year... we are joined at the hip .... I am lucky to know you girl... ....Sheree.... Thanks for the blog make over again.... You inspire me to get back to my blogging ways and ,y promise to you is that I will update it more regularly. Lol.
Thats it for today girls... if you stopped by please leave a comment or say hi so I can return the love....and let me know what you think of the new look.
