Playful Snowman

I made this card using my nesties - Labels Two. The snowflakes were cut out using my Cricut. I found 2 small red buttons & some even smaller white buttons that are on 3 of the snowflakes! A quick card to make:-)

This is middle/bottom part of the mobile I made. I used my new shape-abilities (Like nesties). These are so easy & fun to use! I threaded some clear plastic thread through the top & bottom of each flower shape to hang it. It's now hanging on my doorway in the kitchen where I can see it often! They would make great presents to post because they are so light & wouldn't cost alot!
Hope you are all having a great weekend - I am! The weather is just gorgeous, sunny & very warm! Thanks for visiting! Hugs from Sunshine!


This is the top half of my hanging mobile thing I made using the shapeabilities I just got. SO easy to make!

My Little Princess!

Here is my little Princess, "Bella-Rosa" being cute! She comes 'alive' late at night & likes me to get down on the floor & play with her! Fine getting down, but it's the 'getting up' bit that I have a challenge with! She is moulting alot right now & I have hayfever & the cats fur does not help! I am sure she wonders why I sneeze so much when I pat her! Is she cute or what?! (Ok, so I am biased, but she is cute!!)

Squirrels & Bunnies For Christmas!

Well! I am back at the stamp desk again & have made these 3 cute cards today! My new nesties got a bit of a work-out too! This is just one of the new sets I got. I added some chunky glitter with stars in to the snow flakes. Looks better IRL!
Got to go & try out my other nesties now! Thanks for visiting & enjoy the rest of your day!

Squirrel & Bunny Christmas Card

My very dear friend Rosy gave me this cute Christmas stamp a few years ago & I just love it! She knows I am 'nuts' about squirrels! (Thank you Rosy!)This was an easy & quick card to make, just used the nesties for the shapes. They are seriously fun to use!

Penguin Christmas Card

Well here's the first card made with my new nesties that just arrived! Are they fun or what?!
They are so cool to use, I love them already!
I just used scraps of card for these, as they are not too big.
Thanks for visiting & hope you are having a great weekend! We are into Sunday downunder!

Made With Punches

I got the idea for this card from Valita's blog, check out her blog, she has some really neat stuff! Scroll down & click on her name to get to her blog. (Blogs I visit)
The swans are made from 4 punched leaves, & the swans necks are made from a cuttlebug die; the heart shaped bits are cut in half. The heads are a tear drop punch I have. I used my nesties for the scallop circle & a Fiskars round punch for the blue circle. I think these are so cute & oh so easy to make! Thanks for visiting & enjoy your day!:-) Thanks Valita!

A Little Bird Told Me...

Here is another photo I took last week. This little Sparrow was not at all shy about having his photo taken! He let me get very close to him to take the photo & didn't fly away afterwards! My new camera has a very quiet shutter so it didn't disturb him at all!
I am working on some Xmas cards at the moment, I have 6 more to do & they are finished. A friend asked me to do them but there is no hurry to get them done.
Thanks for visiting & have a great day!

A Rose for YOU!

Ok, so I haven't made any cards lately...forgive me! My "other" passion is photography, & having been recently given an awesome new camera (Canon 450D DSLR twin zoom lens) I just had to go & try it out! Anyone that knows anything about camera's will appreciate the "wow" factor in it!
I have made several calendars using my photo's in the last week but sadly forgot blog them & have now posted them all around the world! Can you believe it! I did them for Xmas gifts and they are quite cheap to post. I am also going to make cards with some of them. Anyway, I ramble on too long, this is just one of the 100's of photo's I've taken recently & I thought I'd blog it 'cause I haven't got any cards to blog! My new nesties will be here any day so I imagine I will be inspired by them & have some cards to show you!
Thanks for visiting, and not giving up me just yet!
Have a fun week - I have my Xmas tree up already, am I mad?? Well "Bella-Rosa" just adores it & the bits hanging off it! We've already had one "crash", but nothing broken, on either cat or tree, so that's good!
Ciao for now, heart hugs from Sunshine!:-)

More Roller-skate Cards!

Here are some roller-skate cards I just made. I just LOVE roller-skating & have my old skates from when I was about 14! (Yes, they are 'antiques' now!!)
Susan will understand this! These cards were made by stamping an ice skate stamp I have (I love to ice skate too!) & I chopped off the blade & added buttons for the wheels.
Scroll down a bit to the last one & check out Cammies blog, that is where I got the idea for these cards! Cammie has some neat stuff on her blog so check it out! Click on Cammie to see her blog! Thanks again Cammie!
There are stick on pearls on the lace studs on the skate & I added a bow. These cards really are quick & easy to make, and FUN!! I am taking some cards to the local hospital for them to sell, soon, so I will make a couple of these for them too.
Thanks for visiting & I hope your day/evening is going well!

Are there any other stampers out there who like to roller skate?! Let me know! :-)

I got the idea for this card off Cammies blog, PLEASE check it out, she has some awesome stuff! (Thank you Cammie!)
Years ago when my friend Susan & I were kids, we used to go roller skating every weekend, we loved it! So I made this card for her!
I used an ice skate stamp from thINKing Stamps Australia & chopped off the blades & added some big buttons for wheels. I used a word stamp (memories) from Art Impressions & had to chop it up because it didn't fit on the card. I used a rectangle nestie for the pink card & added some stick on pearls for the studs on the laces. The final touch was the blue bow - oh so quick & easy to make! I am going to make some more of these in different colours
I had fun making this card!
Thanks for visiting, have a fab week!

Circle of Love

The word "Love" is a small silver sticker. I used my nesties to cut out the pink, lavender & silver circles & layered them onto a pale pink card. I put some paper flowers & stick on pearls in the corners & added a tiny drop of kindy glitz to the scallop circles. A really quick cad to make!
Have a great day & thanks for visiting!

Snow Much Fun!

My Spiral Whisper stamps arrvived three days ago, they only took four days to get here from the UK! Wow, quick service!!
"Milly On Yule Log", is the little girl, & "Row of Tree's" is the Xmas tree's.
I first stamp Milly then made a mask for her & stamped one row of tree's directly behind her. I then masked the tree's & stamped them on each side of her to get a longer row of tree's. I masked her again & stamped the snowy hills (Stampendous). Oh yes, I added the tiny bird (also Stampendous). I coloured the whole card using my copics. I lastly added kindy glitz to the snow on the log & the snowy hills & tops of tree's. These stamps (Spiral Whisper) are just gorgeous, do go to their site & check them out! As I said, they arrived within four days!! I want more...
Have a great day & thanks for visiting:-)

Here is another card I made. This one is on dark silver card, sort of iridescent & sparkly. Much nicer IRL! I added some white paper flowers & gems. The flowers around the words have tiny gems in the center.
I like working with this card as it is a nice firm card & holds it's shape well.
I am a bit cranky right now - my glasses I need for distance vision have broken...yet AGAIN!! I have not had very much luck with my glasses & refuse to go back to my original optician after the last episode with my glasses. As luck would have it, I am off to The Eye Institute tomorrow to find out if I am a suitable candidate for either lasik or laser surgery. Because I have extremely little peripheral vision, glasses block my vision so much so that it is dangerous. I have huge trouble crossing roads etc. So now I just need the 'money fairy' (I know there is one...) to drop me some money to pay for the surgery!! Wish me LUCK! At least I have my reading glasses so I can still STAMP!! Have a fab weekend & see you again soon! Thanks for visiting!:-)

Well here's how I celebrated Halloween! It's not all that popular 'down under' but I found this cute "Casper the friendly Ghost" in the $2 shop & just had to have him! I attached him with fine wire to my shopping trolley & took him shopping!
I have been stamping but due to a fall I had earlier in the week, I haven't done much & haven't posted what I have done. I had just (last week) finished four months of physio for my left hip & now I am back at physio again with my other injuries:-( (Nothing broken thank goodness!)
Right at this moment I am working on a wedding card but it has a bit more to go before I can post it. Stay tuned...I am still stamping! I have a busy week ahead with physio & other appointments but don't give up on me yet!
Hope you all had a fun Halloween - thanks for visiting!
