On Your Wedding Day

We recently attended a beautiful Wedding of our dear friends Donna & Bob on Stradbroke Island, in Queensland, it was a lot of fun and of course the bride was absolutely stunning. 
I made them a lovely wedding card that reflected their wedding day as much as possible and also a message in a bottle for he precious Bride & Groom.
Here are the photos below for you to look at, thanks for stopping by today :)
My work this week was also entered into the following sites:
This was the entire gift package, more details and the inside of the card are in the photos below... Enjoy!

I found some gorgeous padded card stock which I used the die cut from Martha Stewart for extra detail

Just Couldn't resist decorating the top of the glass bottle...
The card reflected their Wedding day theme of the beach and also releasing of butterflies as you will see further in the card details with the butterfly card stock on the inside layers within the card

Beautiful butterfly card stock to reflect the precious part of their special day with the releasing of the butterflies

I added a cute detail of a satin & iridescent crystalline ribbon & bow on the first inside page

On the next inside page where the wording went, I added another ribbon & bow, this time it was satin heart ribbon I wanted to make the inside extra special by adding this detail.

The writing is my own hand written & heartfelt for the Bride & Grooms journey ahead together

Back inside page with my stamp

The bottle with the message in it

Couple more close ups

Now the final and my favourite part of the whole creative expression was the envelope, I hand made each flower and curled each petal, then added pearls and Crystals galore for extra exquisiteness!
I have loved sharing this with you today, I hope that you enjoyed it nearly as much as I did making it :)
Thanks for stopping by, I wish you lots of creative moments ahead :)

I had so much fun making this cute little card, we have been invited to a Halloween Party at one of our friends, Back in New Zealand where we lived a few years back, Halloween was not celebrated, But here in Australia we have had a Halloween invite every year, it is just sooo much fun to be a part of :) We can't wait to celebrate this year once again! Check out my card below:
See how cute this Witch is, she is just adorable :) especially with the frogs hanging on!
 Check out the Skulls in the designer paper!
I used Cuttlebug shaping for the background elements on the cardstock behind the witch
The flowers were carefully selected with Halloween in mind and carrying the colour of the frogs out to the outer edges of the card where possible for balance of my overall design of the card.
For the inside of this card, I decided to do a cute little Trick or Treat check list, as you can see
Then of course the written details to our friends of acceptance for their lovely invitation summed up with the cute little frog wearing the witches hat at the bottom right hand corner of the card
And I couldn't finish this blog post without showing you this cute little witch getting her treats with her pumpkin bowl, such adorable stamps! 
these stamps can be found at: 7 Kinds College Fund
Thanks for stopping by, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

I haven't done a blog entry for so long...Sorry everyone, I have just been too unwell, however I made this cute little card for my Brother In-Law, I'm sure he will like it, I loved making it, it was just such a cute picture and the black & white really stands out :)
Isn't it cute? but quite manly with the colours I've chosen :)
I loved the detail of the button and ribbon threaded through it
Thanks for visiting me today :)

A simple matchbox.....
 turned into something cute, whimsical, and very girly!
My creative thoughts went to town on this one, a Tooth Fairy box! made from paper with fairies & Butterflies, flowers & gems... glitter here & there, and a few pearls along with way for the fairies earrings etc... 
I have entered this into a few places, check out the sites below:
Below are a few more angles of the tooth fairy box
The little round note token says:
Dear Tooth Fairy, please be careful opening the box, a special tooth is inside.
I balanced all the blue and mauve out with a few bright colored flowers.
This is the other side of the box, both sides are uniquely different
I have also used a liquid application in various places to leave a wet look
 as you will be able to see in a few photo's
Thanks for popping by today

Pretty in Tulips

Hi Everyone, today I have a nice card to share with you, I had a rather busy weekend, so I was hoping I would have posted this card before now, never mind... no rest for the wicked ... as they say! hahhahahaa
The stamp is from Bugaboo she is cute all dressed up in tulips, and of course pretty in pink :)
I added some butterflies from other paper that I had, so I took time to cut them out, and as you can see, pretty gems & glitter, and card stock to compliment the pretty papers, quite a refreshing card I think :)
I entered the card into the following sites:
Cute Card Thursday - where the sketch came from
Crafty Creations Challenges - Challenge # 81 - use butterflies
Flutter by Wednesday - use of butterfly, fairy or angels challenge
The sketch from Cute Card Thursday was a straight sketch, I turned mine slightly to the left to add further dimension and make it more interesting. Here are a few more angle's as below
As you can see the Butterflies are not completely glued down, I decided to make them look like they were flying by letting one part of the wing come out from the card to add further dimension.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a great day :)

Happy Birthday

Well, it's been a while since I have had a decent blog, due to random things happening, so I'm pleased to show you a card I made for a friend today for her birthday. 
the adorable digi stamp is from Bugaboo stamps
I have also entered this card into the following blogs:
I loved the paper from Bo Bunny I managed to purchase this a while back, but the colors are more for a Halloween theme but they go really well with the ivy image of the stamps and I then tied in more green, black & purple with embellishments and bling, to get it away from such a Halloween theme, I think it turned out really well. I love the black grid sticker I placed on the bottom of the card, it made the card look really cool!
Don't you just love the Ivy Girl!
Thanks for stopping by today :)

On Your Engagement

This was meant to be for a pink & dots challenge, but due to being so unwell I wasn't able to enter it in time, so I've entered it into the summer card challenge with One Stop Craft Challenge - Butterfly's are out in summer, aren't they?  It's a simple card, the inside has more detail than the front of the card, on the inside you can move the butterfly wings to see what is written underneath, the photo doesn't do much justice for the card, due to the poor lighting, sorry for that, but it was a very pretty engagement card to make for a lovely couple of friends, we are very excited for them :)
You can find more inspiration on One Stop Craft Challenge
I used the Christina Rae paper range for a bit of a change, it's just so pretty, and also flowers, gems, glitter, the computer helped with the words :) have a look at the inside of the card as below
Thanks for looking at my blog today, it was a pleasure to have you visit :)

Hello Ladies, I have really enjoyed using this Tilda stamp, she is just so pretty and cute, I had fun with the chocolate challenge, but I couldn't help myself a splash of pink went in I'm a huge fan of pink, as you can see from my blog :) The challenge was for Totally Tilda join in if you like there is still plenty of time left to submit your chocolate Tilda creation :)
Below is a close up of the pretty Tilda
See, only a dash of pink here and there, not too much but just enough to pretty it up :)
I used copics, flowers, designer papers, card, ribbon, gems & glitter of course ;)
It was lovely to have you stop by today :)

Hello, Thank you for visiting my blog today, it's a pleasure to share my latest creation with you from the Sketch Saturday Blog

I have made this card for my Dad, who is unwell at the moment awaiting a surgery which should happen in the next couple of months (fingers crossed) I really hope it's soon so that he can be out of pain.

Anyway, on with the card, I loved using the soft green colours, but had to try as much as possible not to make it too pretty... so I held back on the glitter where ever possible and left the flowers in their natural state, so I hope you like it :)  I know my Dad will love it :)
Isn't the Sock Monkey ever so cute!, you can find him over at BugaBoo Stamps, I used Card stock & designer paper from Kaiser in their Spiro range, but it was an old piece of paper, not sure if it's still available now. I also used, heart shape brads, gingham ribbon, gems & pearls, flowers and a little bit of glitter, sentiment is my own, check out some close ups below
My cards are also on sale click HERE to see them

Hi There, It's been a busy Saturday for me today, I have been to work and back home now, I found this fabulous Monochrome challenge at to enter, it just so happens that I have made a couple this week for a shop that I supply some one off's to, anyway, I'll let you be the judge, 
I hope you like it :)
I followed the colors of the designer papers closely, so many pretty shades of pink, and I loved this paper it's just so feminine with lots of hearts everywhere, it went nicely the with the gingham ribbon I chose and the white satin lace ribbon too, lots of pretty white flowers and I decorated nearly everything in site with glitter.
Thank you for stopping by today, it's been a pleasure sharing with you :)
