Colourful Seeds #1

I stumbled across the Design Seeds site late last year and now it is a place a visit almost daily for inspiration.

I decided not long afterwards that I would use it as a main inspiration for my cardmaking in 2012 and already it has pushed me in many different directions and styles.

The first colour palette I used was this one...

I have a major thing for apricot atm... :)

...and created these two cards.

This card was inspired by a Melissa Phillips card.

Thanks for stopping by and all of your lovely comments.
Will have time over the next few weeks to stop by and visit you all.

Happy Heart...

Some days you just feel that way, right?

So many things to be happy for atm but mostly just watching my two precious kids bloom and grow makes me the happiest. Today I discovered that the never ending noise they make also makes me happy (even when I am begging them to be quiet for 5 mins :) ) as they are not here and the silence is deafening!!!

They are having a sleepover at their grandparents house and having the time of their lives! But here, DH and I are kind of lonely...lol. Oh, don't get me wrong...we are loving the time to ourselves and have got an amazing amount of jobs down without two little sets of hands that always want to help and make a job last for an hour longer than it should...but the silence is killing us...hehehe.

Joined in over at Colour Q this week...loved this combo...

...and because I was on a roll (and the house was so quiet :) )...I also used this colour combo to play over at Meljen's again this week....anything goes!!

Thanks for stopping by...

I scream, you scream...

we all scream for ice cream!!!

Well, my kids sure are :). The weather in our little part of the world is finally starting to feel like summer. Today they have two of their closest friends over and while my house looks like a bomb went off, they are having the time of their lives and are currently trying to catch butterflies. Not sure that they are having much success but the giggles coming from the backyard are just the cutest.

Just popping in again to share a few summery cards that I made a while back when we were desperate for summer to make an appearance...

The ice cream is a digital stamp from Whimsie Doodles.

Thanks for stopping by...

Delight in Digi's...

**Happy New Year**

I tend to start the new year dabbling in digital stamps and over the weekend printed out some of my favourites from Meljen's Designs.

So while my kids are outside enjoying the summer sunshine and a large juicy slice of watermelon, I thought I would sneak in and share with you.

I am playing along with the challenge over at Meljen's this week...using stars.

Love that bear...so cute.

Here is another I did last week...

And while I am sharing my love of all things Meljen here are the cards I made for the 10 Quick Cards feature in CSPC magazine...lots of yummy little Meljen digi stamps. So versatile...you've just gotta love em' :).

Off to join the kids in the backyard...thanks for stopping by.
