Simple Statement

I kept this card clean and simple.
I wanted to concentrate on what i was
writing on the inside.
I used Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze & More Mustard colours.

Cards for the Troops 2011

Here is the stash of cards i have posted off
to Karen. I didn't make as many as last year.
But in saying that i am happy with what i did
get finished. You still have time to send off
one or many blank Christmas cards so
our Troops can send their Christmas
wishes home to family and friends.
For more details visit Karen's blog,
They need to arrive by next Saturday,
the 5th of November.

The bundle i posted off.

A few of my favourites.

Parents To Be

I really enjoyed making this card.
It exudes excitement.
Such a special time for the recipients.
I decided on making an easel card
to add that special touch.
The verse i used on the card is from
the first card i ever received
seventeen and a half years ago
when i was expecting my first baby.
Looking forward to making the baby
it's own card in 7 months.

Old Is New

Loving school holidays.
I have nearly been through the
whole home and cleaned
every nook & cranny.
You could say spring cleaning
but the weather hasn't been
very spring like.
So what have i been up to.
Here are a few projects
that i have been working on.

A faded picture but with a nice frame,
turned into a blackboard.

A tired set of dresser draws.
Cleaned up, painted and handles polished.

Bedside drawers that have seen better days.
Painted, new drawer runners
and handles.
