Let's hear it for Three sneak peaks!!

HELLO!! How was your weekend???
Mine was completely WONDERFUL, spending much of it in Sydney with the delightful Carli who celebrated her birthday Monday!! Happy 30th Lovely!!!!

(here we are pictured at a yummy ice-cream parlour in Darling Harbour on Saturday night)

But I'm here to show you some more crafting goodies to get those creative juices flowing. So here are some cards made with the new Graphic Botanical Suite. Firstly these are some of the cute gift tags that I made to go with a very exciting pressie that I gave out to all my Paper Doll Stamp club members..... THE NEW CATTY!!!

The next idea is using some more of the new and very bright Greenhouse Gala DSP and the set to match Friends never fade. How groovy are those strips!!

There's LOTS more of where these came from and with only 1 more sleep till YOU AND I both can order from the new 2010/2011 catty..... I hope you've liked my little sneak peak!! Until tomorrow when I'm sure computers and phones will be HOT with orders, have a super Tuesday eve.

These are using the new Birthday Bash Suite. It is loaded with rub-on's and DSP and the cutest little button's so watch out for this as it's a great colour combo suitable for our little girls and boys and screams Fun and Play!!!

What shall I wear today?

There simply is not ONE day, HONESTLY NOT ONE that I don't adorn myself with the amazingly gorgeous, stylish, fashionable pieces of jewelery from THAT VINTAGE!!
Sophie Hill the designer and owner of the label is a very dear friend of mine and coming up NEXT WEEKEND (27-28th Aug) she will have some of her best and newest jewellery treasures to be snapped up by ME and hopefully YOU too!!
I have the pleasure of designing some cute little gift cards to go with her beauties so if you're in Launceston, or actually if you're not and you're FREE next weekend then YOU MUST CHECK IT OUT!!!! The market showcases lots of other wonderful local designers from all around this special little Island so it really needs to be put at the top of your "to do" list for next weekend!!

Hope this weekend is a lovely one for you,

I'm not sure if you've heard about the precious little Hudson (click here to read his story) but Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over Australia are pitching in to raise funds for him. It's really wonderful to see people pull together and if you've got time to read the blogs and join in the challenges, or purchase the fabulous tutorial's that they have at the HELPING HUDSON blog- then DO IT!!!
We needed to use a wheel for this week, or at least a circle shape, I was needing a 40th birthday card for a very special friend of ours who's party we are going to on the weekend and so came up with thisI used the Spot on wheel and coloured each dot or spot with my markers! (yes I had lots of time to play with this one so I made the most of it!!)
Hope your day has been super,

Embellish Quirky - Cutesy, Clean style

The name of this challenge says it all..... how cool is the word "quirky"!!! I'd like to try and use it more.... maybe I will this week as a word challenge! HE HE!!!
Anyhow I had time to play along with this one and was most excited on Saturday morn when I whipped this little number up.....
but before we go there here is the inspiration picture from EMBELLISH....

Ohhhh it's screaming spring to me! I love how close it is now, some days you can feel it in the air, and the blossom's are already starting to shine......

So here is my quirky, cutesy card!

Note the button!?! There is that saying "cute as a button" so how could I NOT include one!
I love this little deer (which is coming back in the new catty next month) and the dotty frame is a very loved stamp from Frames with a Flourish! This beauty is retiring so make sure you DON"T MISS OUT AND ORDER ONE FOR YOURSELF!!!
It's been great to play and say HELLO!! I've thought of you often but time has been used for other things..... I look forward to saying HELLO again soon!
