Cardabilities #84 & Inspired by Stamping 2nd Birthday Challenge & Seize The Birthday Challenge

Hey Everyone

Cardabilities has a fabulous sketch that I couldn’t wait to play along with this weekend.

How it is that you can lose a stamp set for 6 months and then it all of a sudden appears under the couch in my living room?  It happened to one of my Inspired by Stamping stamp sets called Elegant Flowers.  I just may be losing my mind as I don’t remember taking it from my craft room!  I’m entering my card into Inspired by Stamping’s 2nd Birthday Colour Challenge, their Birthday Theme Challenge and their Customer Gallery Challenge.

Seize the Birthday #1

Hey Everyone

Seize the Birthday is the new challenge in town created by my blogging friend Lesley.  She is amazing and very creative to have thought of so many different ideas for challenges.  This new challenge is a great one – week one is a sketch for a feminine card. The same sketch is used for week 2, but it will then be for a masculine card. How cool is that?

My idea of “girlie” is lots of pink, so that’s what I’ve gone with for my card.  Stampin’ Up!s  Fan Fair DSP has the perfect colours for a girlie card and I’ve teamed this with my new stamp set Secret Garden (I can’t believe my Stampin’ Up! pre-order finally arrived! I think I’m the last SU demonstrator in Melbourne to receive theirs!).  Oh I love new products, especially a leaf stamp that has it’s own die – I’m in heaven. You’ll probably get sick of me using these….

Mojo Monday #271 & Seize the Birthday Linky Party

Hey Everyone

Gee I’ve had a busy weekend.  I’ve decided that I’ve gotten old – we had our work Christmas Party last night and I feel I could sleep for another two days to catch up on missed sleep (even though I only got home at 1am)!

Inbetween laying around on the couch for a lot of the day I made a card for this weeks Mojo Monday challenge and also for Lesley’s new challenge blog – Seize the Birthday.
