Just another manic Monday...

Mondays are my day to get everything done without any children under foot and today I went for broke...lol.

Both fridges are sparkling inside and out, both cars are sparkling inside and out, been to the organic grocery store to grab some yummy goodies, took the vacuum in for repair and even managed to have a lovely coffee with hubby at the most gorgeous little cafe that a friend suggested i try. And she was right...the most divine coffee ever! :)

Just popping in to share my card for the My Minds Eye card sketch.


And a few others...



Thanks for stopping by...

Sunny Summer Sundays...

...are extremely rare around here. Not sure how the rest of Australia is fairing but NSW were told at the beginning of Summer that it would be 'the Summer we never had'...and so far it has lived up to that quote!! In my 35 years I can never remember a summer where is has rained and rained and rained and can count on one hand the amount of days where the thermostat has reached over 30degrees Celsius.

But today the sun is shining, the washing is drying outside for a change and hubby and the kids are enjoying a bike ride together while I get a bit of quiet time....ah bliss. If time permits before they get home I might go outside and sit and read in the sun for a while...fingers crossed...lol.

Sharing my card for Colour Q today...loved this combo...



Hope the sun is shining in your little corner.

Saturday Sketchbook...

I am really into sketches atm. I have hundreds saved on my computer and I am always trolling for more but rarely use them...hehehe.

The other night I was almost desperate to create something....do you ever feel that way? I had some beautiful new paper pads and stamps sitting in front of me but I just sat there. I opened up my sketch file and 20mins later had a completed card sitting in front of me...it was liberating, I tell ya...lol.


So I just kept going and played along over at Chupa's blog with here Saturday Sketchbook sketch...



Thanks for stopping by...have a great weekend!

Paper plus time...

equals a card set...:)

I guess I also need to add in the fact that the creative juices were flowing and digging to the bottom of my paper stash to come up with these October Afternoon papers was so much fun...lol.

I created these for this weeks challenge over at Meljen's Designs to use Pastels.


After preparing and hosting my little girls 4th birthday party on Saturday and having house guests I was surprised I had any energy last night to complete these but now I am wondering how I can get back in the groove and churn out 3 cards every night...hehehe.

Hope you are all well and thanks for stopping by...

PTI Favourites...

Just had to play along because:
a) the kids are both at school today :)
b) who doesn't want to lift every card that the PTI girls create and;
c) PTI products....need I say more :D

I used Betsy's cards as inspiration...


and came up with this...


I used the limited edition 'a big thank you' stamp, raspberry fizz and aqua mist ink, aqua mist buttons, rustic cream cardstock and distress dots patterned paper.

Would love to create more but I think my time is up. I am off to finish organising Miss A's 4th birthday party.

Oh lovely colour...

Once again it was a colour combo that got me crafting this weekend.

Do you every have those times where the mojo is there but you just can't produce? That has been me for the last few weeks. Granted life has been crazy...kids are back at school and pre-school and hubby just had a cornea transplant...yep, you read right....a cornea transplant.

I knew that life would be a bit chaotic for a while but i had no idea of his limitations while his eye recovers and accepts the new cornea....the man can't even bend over to get the milk out of the fridge. The first few days were MANIC...but we have found a rhythm and he is recovering very well and very fast. His Dr only tells us good things at his check ups and for that we are grateful!!

So you can understand why my mojo felt a bit neglected...:)

Last night I finally had success after sitting at my desk and procrastinating for an hour...lol.

I played along at Colour Q and Meljen's Designs...



Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
