Hi there

Australia Day today and it has been a nice long weekend too..Darryl and I have had a nice relaxing couple of days..

I have had some nice time just creating in the craft room, for once only doing basic stuff around the house and spending time in there just creating, it has been nice, I have so much product and yes some are older, but never having the opportunity to create, for once I have and it was great..

Last night, I decided to create my Sister In Law’s birthday card, with her birthday at the end of the week, this will be winging it’s way in the mail and hopefully arriving in time, I am also hoping she does not read this post either :)


I chose to take out the Ruby Rose stamp and die set from Papertrey Ink, die cutting on white card stock and stamping the corresponding stamps in various ink colours, adding it to the Full Card Triangles die from Simon Says Stamp, finishing off by adding a Wet Paint, Celebrate die cut, that was die cut several times and layered together for dimension, another corresponding sentiment under and scattering of enamel dots to complete…

I sure hope she likes her card…it was fun to create..

Hope you are enjoying your weekend and having some crafty time..

Thanks for stopping by..
