Hello.... Remember me?

Wowzy wowzers!  It's been over 6 months since my last post and I feel I need to purge!

And I might not get too much chance to create too much over the next two months as the family become 'in transit' from Sydney to Melbourne... yes, that's right... my craft goodies will be going into storage.... OOoooooHhhhhh NNNoooOOOO!  Definitely not sure how I will cope but to try and choose a SMALL numbers of items and stamps to keep out is just TOO HARD!

So in the meantime, some of my 2012 Christmas collection: -

 Above and below are cased from my gorgeous pal Sue Dean xx

Oh my - these two involved SO much colouring ... as my Stamp-A-Stack gals discovered one long long session!

 And this last one was an 'en masse' card made for our school class parents - 45 all up; loved every minute x

Australia's Biggest Morning Tea

What a cracker of a day!  The team over at Crafters Anonymous hosted another brilliant ABMT event with new projects every hour over 8 hours (7 projects with a lunch break!!)

So here are my projects with a brief summary... I might run out of words as my brain's battery fades!!

3d Project - favours box - just love this and my DD8 wants them for her next birthday... 'just in prettier colours, please mum' !
 Next, a colour challenge - Neutrals - I stayed simple (like I am!)
 Punch Art - flower - I think I was more excited about making the box than the flower as I have admired these cake boxes for some time; the flower turned out ok too!

During lunch, after stumbling across some random rub-ons, I made this card using nesties to create the embossed circles...

After lunch, a sketch challenge - I made a card although layout was more designed for scrapbooking; loving all the colours!
 3d Challenge - Cupcake - based on 'the' flowerpot design, here is a cupcake version... although mine appears to be having an 'ice-cream' identity crisis with the flakes!
 Ingredients challenge - toothpick! This challenge really did... challenge!  All ingredients were fairly straightforward ... until the toothpick appeared!  So after a fair ole struggle, here's my lame effort!
 ... and finally - a sweet treat pocket!  Simple yet super!
What a great great day and for a great great cause xxxx

Here's a couple of blatant CASE cards I've enjoyed copying recently!

Firstly, my version of Chupa's bold and simple card - I love it as it crosses gender and age I feel...

Secondly, my only-marginally altered version of a divine card I saw via Just Add Ink by Judy May...  it's so pretty and I loved her placement of the pearls...

Birthday bonanza...

Because I don't already have enough birthday cards in my stash **chuckle chortle **
I saw this first one on one of my many blog treks so forgive me for not acknowledging source at this stage but after a little wee purchase of MFT goodies, I had to CASE...
These next cards are based on the birthday card I received from Stampin' Up earlier in the year - a simple but great way to showcase in-colours!  The second one was born from stamping the sentiment upside-down!

 And finally a couple of cards using the Sale-A-Bration dsp (now sadly ended) - I wasn't too keen on the papers at first.... yet now wish I'd stocked up on lots more!

Thanks for looking!

... hello ... remember me?

I cannot believe it is Easter already?  Where has 2012 gone?  Doesn't help that I'm still writing 2011 as the date... I am turning into my grandmother!!

So here's a few shares from Valentines Day ... with a little pledge to make sure I update my blog more often!

2 little cards I popped into my girls' lunchboxes xxxx

1 card for hubbie, using a GORGEOUS rusty button from heartsupplies on Craftumi.

And finally, 2 cards made in case my hubbie needed to rummaged through my card collection, like he did on our anniversary!! xxxx love him xxxx
