My First Mo's Digital

I first saw Mo's digital image's at Debbie P's Blog and I have to say I have been wanting one ever since. Debbie did the most gorgeous Holly card, that I knew eventually I would have to get her. So now I have her and I made this beautiful purple card for my good friend Annette, who's favourite color is purple. After using the acetate over at AnyaInk, I decided to use it again. I love the different look it gives the card.

Well I can't believe that it is only 3 days till Christmas! I just love Christmas! I was out for tea last night with some friends and we ended up in target as it was open till midnight and they had 50% off their animated Christmas things and I ended up buying this singing Christmas Tree, cause I knew my twins would love it. Anyway I can safely say that I have had enough of hearing the tree sing 'rockin around the christmas tree!' plus the many punch ons that come with one singing Christmas tree and two little girls!

In case I don't get back here, I would like to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas!

Digi Stamp - Mo's Fairy Holly
Ink - Copics and Touch markers, White Gel Pen
Others - Flowers(BizzyBecs) Lace (My stash) Sentiment-Kaisercraft Rub On

Some Very Exciting News!!

I am so excited to announce that I have been asked to be a Guest DT member for AnyaInk for the first week back in January. I have never been on a DT before so I am super, super, super excited!!! I told my 10 year old son when we were walking home from school and he was just as excited for me. He always wants to know when I have put a card in for a challenge and wants to know if I have won! I think he may be just a little bit proud of his mum!

AnyaInk - Acetate Challenge

The last AnyaInk Challenge for the year is to use acetate. I have seen some fantastic things done with acetate and had actually bought some only a few weeks ago, so this was the perfect opportunity to have a go. I think that this turned out pretty good, although it was hard to take a picture of. I have included two pictures as I think the first one is better, but you get the flash on the acetate. So I added another one, you can never have enough photos of your cards!! Anyway I white embossed the greeting on the inside of the card so that you could see it through the acetate window.

Paper - SU Riding Hood Red and SU Whisper White, Oh and of course Acetate!
Tools - Swiss Dots embossing folder, Eyelet Borderbilities and Nestabilites Labels 1
Stamps - TGF Christmas Sweetie and SU Sincere Salutations
Other - Mini roses and red rhinestone's (Bizzy Becs) white ribbon (my stash), pink kindy glitz, white liquid applique and riding hood red ink sponged around the window.

Well it sure is a hot one down in Melbourne today. I have let my older two stay home today because it is so hot, but I have threatened a few times to drop them off at school because they keep fighting! Is 1pm to early for a glass of wine!! Lucky for me Hubby came home early and I nicked out to the shops for some sanity relief. I ended up down at Chemist Warehouse smelling perfumes. I need a new one and I was after something different. I smelt so many perfumes, but as soon as I smelt Vera Wang Princess I knew that I had found my new perfume, not to mention it comes in the most gorgeous bottle, it is a heart shaped pink bottle with a little tiara on the lid, so cute! So Santa will be bringing me a nice new perfume! I can't wait.

Past AnyaInk Challenges

This first card was entered into last weeks AnyaInk challenge for their 'Christmas Challenge'. I used one of the Christmas Sweeties stamps, they are so cute! I put some Liquid Applique across Santas hat, beard and coat. I also use some Basic Grey DSP which is from their Eskimo Kisses Range. Across the top I used my Martha Stewart Doily punch and some felt flowers. I also sparkled up my flower to add a little more bling, you can never have enough bling!! I was really happy with how this card turned out. I also did another one of these cards using the other Christmas Sweeties Stamp. This one I did using my favourtie color Pink!

This next card was for AnyaInk's Vintage Challenge. I used my labels 4 nestie to cut around Anya and I embossed the background paper and then ran some white ink across the top of the paper. A little bit of lace and some gorgeous flowers from Bizzy Becs. I really challenged myself to use different colors in this card and I was happy with the result.

The next card was meant to be for the AnyaInk blue and orange challenge, but I didn't make it on time and luckily enough the next challenge was to make a boys card, so I entered it for that. This card was for my son's 10th B'day. I can't believe that he has just turned 10. Makes me feel old!! I used surfer Ian, he is such a cool little stamp. My daughter actually gave me the idea for the waves, she made a card for her brother using the same stamp and she cut out waves. I thought it was a great idea, so I used it on my card. Sometimes the simplest of ideas can come from an 8 year old! Anyway my son loved the card, which made for a very happy Mummy!
Anyway, hope you have liked seeing my old AnyaInk entries, or some of them anyway, as it takes a long time to post so many pictures to your blog, never knew it took so much time. Although I have had fun doing it!! I can see I am going to get hooked on this blog thing!

Magnolia Down Under Challenge

Here is my entry for the MDUC. I have use this gorgeous Tilda with present, which I got off my good friend Annette and colored her up with my touch and copic markers. I just love her she is sooo cute! Anyway I decided to have a go at a shadowbox card after seeing the beautiful Jodie's creation, who is on the DT of MDUC. I have use dimesional magic on tildas boots and hat, but it is a little hard to see in the photo. I was really happy with this creation. Sometimes trying something new works out!!

First Post!!

I thought it was about time I started my own blog. So here it is and here is my first card to share with you. It is card for the Anyaink challenge. You had to create an odd shaped card. So I made an ornament card. I have used Fairy Chloe and this is the first time I have colored her up. I have used my Touch and Copic markers, which I know Santa is going to bringing me some more colors to add to my collection!
