Australia Day!!!... Sweet Sunday Sketch #253

Happy Sunday!!! I hope you've had a wonderful weekend and all my fellow Aussies... HAPPY Australia Day {long weekend!!}

Here's my card for this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch:-



And here is the sketch for you to play along with:-




Bearing in mind that tomorrow (Monday) is Australia Day!!! I've gone all out Aussie for today's sketch.... I attempted to go Green and Gold... but Green and Gold are NOT my go to card making colours and I can assure you NO ONE needed to see what eventuated from those colours!!... So I decided to go with the Aussie Flag colours instead... much more pleasing to the eye ;-)


I've used Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler and some Silver Glimmer Paper. The stamp set is Starburst Sayings and I've added a little wooden embellishment and just written 'Australia' on that.


I'll be enjoying myself of a HUGE slip and slide tomorrow with some GORGEOUS friends... I hope you all have a wonderful day!!! Happy Australia Day ( for tomorrow!)

Sweet Sunday Sketch #252

Happy Sunday!!... It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge. All the deets are over on Karen's blog, so do jump on over and join in on the fun!

Here is my card for this week:-



And here is the sketch for you to play along with:-


I've gone SIMPLE, SIMPLE this week, and to be honest... I don't really like it!. NOPE... I'm not loving this card, so much so, I contemplated not posting it and starting again... which I'll quite likely do!.

I used one of the sentiments from the NEW Hello You Thinlets... which I do LOVE!! I used Strawberry Slush for that (LOVE Strawberry Slush too!). I added some Sahara Sand DSP and a spash of Blackberry Bliss for the little banner. I added a little Vintage Button with some linen thread at the top and some Rhinestones for some sparkle... LOTS of things I LOVE, however, they just didn't mix together the way I hoped... perhaps I needed some extra layers! ;-)

Anyhoo...  The rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have much more for you to see this week - please stop over and see:

Sweet Sunday Sketch #251

Happy Sunday!!! Oh, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. My beautiful family and I have just returned from a little holiday getaway, which was SO much fun and very relaxing.

I'm back into it now, although feeling VERY rusty!!!. I haven't stamped or crafted in about a month, so please, be gently on me today!

Here is my card for today:-


And here is the sketch for you to play along with:-


I've gone for my SAFE colours today... Crisp Cantaloupe, Naturals Ivory and Soft Suede... a combination that never seems to fail. I decided to FINALLY ink up my Choose Happiness stamp set today and combined it with another favourite, Kinda Eclectic, with a few splotches of Gorgeous Grunge. The colours I used for stamping were, Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe and Soft Suede. I've added some other staples, Burlap Ribbon, Vintage Lace, Crumb Cake seam binding and some bling!

The rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have much more for you to see this week - please stop over and see:
To finish off, I thought I'd share a quick pic of my BEAUTIFUL family... we take a family shot every year (although we were a little late last year, so it ended up being a New Year shot... shhhh), usually in the same kind of pose, so we can see how much we've changed over the past year... well mainly how much the girls have changed...!

Sooo.... Happiest of NEW YEARS to your families from mine!!!

Thanks for much for stopping by.

Sweet Sunday Sketch #248

Alrighty!!!.. So... it's Sweet Sunday Sketch time again, which is AWESOME, however, it would appear that LIFE and the social life of my two little girls has gotten in the way of my stampin' and crafting time this week!!, NOT SO awesome!


Anyhoo.... here is the sketch for this weeks challenge so you can play along, and I will attempt to sit down tomorrow or even tonight and create something myself.

And here is the sketch for you to play along with:-


Today's card was pretty quick and simple and I literally used things I had sitting on my desk. I've used Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette and some Pool Party as my colour combo and used the gorgeous Flower Patch stamp set... LOVE that set. I've added some Burlap and Venetian lace as well as a Doily and some sparkles in the form of Rhinestones... Pretty much ALL my faves.

Here is my card for this week's sketch:-



And here is the sketch for you to play along with:-

I've flipped the sketch for my card... beeeeccaauuuse... I really wanted to use the cute  stamp from the Amazing Birthday stamp set, for a sweet little man's birthday today!

I've used Smokey Slate, Tangerine Tango and Bermuda Bay for the colour combo and added some Smokey Slate Chevron Ribbon for the little flag tags.

It's a pretty Clean and Simple card for me today, but I'm sure little Noah will LOVE it.

Sweet Sunday Sketch #244

Happy Sunday! Apologies for my lack of existence of late!. It's been a tad busy and crazy around this neck of the woods, with school, LIFE, and my little girl having to have her tonsils and adenoids removed. She's been a trooper and is almost back to normal!. 

All the deets for this weeks sketch are over on Karen's blog, so I hope you can join in the fun!.

Here is my card for this week's sketch:-



And a little close up of the main image:-


And here is the sketch for you to play along with:-



I have to admit, when I first saw this sketch I had a little FREAK out!!! Tilted panels!!!!... Arrrrgggg. Anyhoo... I have to admit, I might actually be getting the hang of these tilted thingamys... AND... I might even actually like them!!!. GASP!!!

I really enjoyed putting this card together... It's made using colours I wouldn't usually pick up first time around... Hello Honey and Mossy Meadow, although it does have Calypso Coral and Crumb Cake... so I guess that made it all a little easier! ;-). I've used the gorgeous stamp set Kinda Eclectic... LOVE it!!! And the sentiment is from Four You. I've added my usual suspects in the form of a Doily, Burlap Ribbon, Linen Thread and some sparkles!
