Created a card today and will share .

Christmas elegance

Hello , welcome to my room and thanks for calling in .

Almost the end of October and I don't have enough Christmas cards . so have to get a move on .

This one has a die cut image from a  Debbi Moore Art Deco Christmas pack .

Card base is SU , paper is LOTV , bow stamp from Lucy's stamps , sentiment from Stamp Art. and pearls from Kraftyhands .

Going to enter this challenge .. The only real rule to link up your cards is to make a holiday or Christmas card.

Had another great morning on the trail and saw another koala . I must make a book of all the photos I have taken there  one day ..on the to do list.

Friday tomorrow .What's that I hear some of you saying? "Thank goodness it's Friday !"
Well I hope that everyone has a happy weekend .

Hats are in .

Hi there , welcome to my room .
Thank you for popping in .

Another hot day in Adelaide . No gopher ride today as it is Tuesday and that means a craft morning with beautiful friends , Sandy and Fran .

Doug was not his usual cheeky self though . I think that the heat got to him and he is tired from the last ride still . I do have to watch him closely in hot weather as he does not like drinking water and if I don't push/ NAG  him to do that he tends to get a bit lethargic . Here is hoping that there is a cool change for tomorrow and he will feel better .

Tonight I am sharing a vintage style card using printed material
 from Kraftyhands CD , Femme Fatale.

Card base is SU , Marina Mist .
Just added a few rhinestones from my stash .

Vintage Christmas

Remember when I said that I was so over Winter?
Heard the saying , "careful what you wish for."?

Well, I take it all back!!

Hello , welcome to my room . Thanks so much for calling in .

We have had record hot Spring days and I am thinking that I am not going to like Summer either .

But this morning was beautiful on the banks of the River Torrens . Photos  are on my face book page .

Tonight am sharing a couple of Christmas cards .

Printed material from Kraftyhands Create-It    magazine issue three.

                             This one was printed as for a 6x6 inch card.
                                  Love the images and paper.

This second card was for a A5 card  but I printed out as page set up on A5
and every thing came out to scale beautifully.

Both card bases were SU card stock from my stash .

Talking about kraftyhands . There is still time to enter October challenge -Tagtastic

Have a great week every one .

 Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.

Time for Him .

Hi there , welcome to my room .
Thanks for calling in .

Quite cold today . Doug decided not to get up this morning while Sandy and Fran were here for craft  session  . So he and Twiggy just rested and listened to the wireless and dozed on and off.

The girls and I enjoyed each others company while cutting and adhering images to create cards. Thanks to Fran bringing the jar of  gherkin  we could have our usual Jatz , cheese and gherkin serve with our coffee.

Will share two of the cards finished today .

First is a masculine card printed from  kraftyhands CD, Man about Town


The card base I made 13cm square. Kit was  printed at A5 page set up .

The second card

                  Sorry not a great photo . This was printed from kraftyhands CD that came
 with Create-it       Magazine , Issue Three.      Also printed with page set up set for A5.

Late afternoon now and time to start dinner so....
