Sunsrise Over The Waitakere Ranges

This is what I see out of my kitchen window every morning.  I am nestled in between two hills, and as the sun rises from the East (behind me in this photo) it lights up the very tops of the trees in the West, which is in front of me. (This photo is looking to the West) It's only at this time of year that I see this view, and every time I see it, I love it.
At the end of the day, I see a similar view, looking towards the East, as the sun sets.

Isolation Day 18 Bits And Pieces.

 I've been baking to distract me from the fact that today is day 17 of isolation at home, for me. No leaving the property for 18 days = no fun!  Top photo is of my gluten free blue berry muffins. They were SO light and yummy!  Bottom photo is of mu Gluten Free Cornflake and Sultana biscuits, also yummy!  Crunchy and chewy, just ow I like them!
 These coloured squares and flowers are made from some origami paper I had stashed away.  Each square is just over 1 1/2 inches square.  I looked at the squares and the SU Pansy punch was sitting right beside me, so I started punching out some flowers.




I made these little inspirational cards using some scraps pf water coloured paper I had made awhile ago..

I will add some stars and things to the last two cards when I get around to it.  My Mojo has all but gone, but I'm trying! 
Below is a card that wasn't supposed to be!  I stamped and water coloured the bunny, and didn't like it and was going to trash it.  However it was sitting on my desk with bits of card all around, so I randomly grabbed some pieces and (almost) made it into a card!  It needs some embellishments to finish it off.  Some gems/sequins and maybe one of the flowers I punched out above.  I'll play with it and see what happens!
 Below is a photo of one of the gorjuss sunshiney yellow flowers on my wild pumpkins.  You can even see the ant that was crawling on the flower!  There are plenty of pumpkins coming on, just as well I  like pumpkin!  The vines are now growing across part of my lawn, but I'm fine with that.

Sparkly Card.

This card was hard to photograph due to the soft colours I used.  I stamped the dotty background first, then attached the fine silver thread using a tiny glue dot.  I stamped and punched the flowers and attached those over the silver thread.  I lastly added gems to the center of each flower.  Below is a close up of the flowers and silver threads.  The cards looks way better in real life!

Copy and paste  this  and watch the video, it gave me goose bumps and bought tears to my eyes.  We so needed a wake up call.
Stay well, stay calm and be kind to others.  We are all struggling.

Coffee? - Tea For Me!

 I am desperately trying to keep my mind busy, and stop listening to the news on the radio!  Anyway I made this card using some card fronts that Andrea gave me!  I added the green ribbon, the sequins, the gem on the little flower, and also the DSP behind the picture.  It was a nice simple and fun card to make!  I have another three card fronts Andrea gave me, so I have a few more cards to create!  Thank you Andrea!  Please pop over to her blog and check out her cards etc!
Ok, once again, thank you for dropping by!  Have a SUNSHNE day!  Stay well, {HUGS} from me to YOU:-)

A Little Calm In Among The Chaos!

I managed to make a card this morning!  I got sick of listening to the radio and all the stuff about this dam virus, so I switched the radio off and decided to make a card!  I'e had an overdose about the virus.  I know I need to keep up to date with what is happening here in my own country, but honestly, I've had enough for now! I water coloured a piece of water colour paper with 3 different shades of ink. (I run a wet brush over different Stampin' Up! ink pads) Then I die cut it and stamped the words using black Stazon ink.  I stuck it to a piece of gold card and then on to the  pink/lilac card.  The tiny diamonds on the card (hard to see) are very tiny and are nail embellishments.  They look very sparkly IRL!  I added the two angel wings (Ali Express buy) and finally added a die cut flower.  I added another die cut flower cut out from some vellum, and added a tiny bit of gold thread to the flower.  I put a pink gem on the center of the flower and the card was done!  There wasn't much to it so it was a fairly quick and easy card to make.
