I seem to have been MIA for what seems like forever, I have been creating but most of it has been for people who read my blog so I haven’t been able to post the things I have made. I am seriously hoping that my Mum has lost the address to here as this little venture is for her, I got the idea for it from here. I apologise for the bad pictures, I was having trouble finding somewhere large enough to lay it out.
Warning – there are a few photos.

I learned today that a friends daughter is getting married in 3 weeks time. The last time I saw her, she was just a little girl, now she is all grown up and off to start a new life with her husband! Where does the time go?
Anyway I took the sketch from Sketch Saturday, the theme of metalic, from One Stop Craft Challenge and Distressing from The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and I came up with this:
Distress Inks to make the paper for the peel off
DCWV Wedding paper pack
Elzybells sentiment stamps
Kanban adhesive pearls
Believe it or not I have made a few things over the past week or so, but sadly cant put them on my blog as the people who they are for would see them lol. Today I have made my 3rd thing using Sunday Sketch and Stamp’s very first sketch. In case you didn’t know they are having a birthday blog hop, you need to start on the challenge blog page here.
Here is a box I made to hold some sketch pieces in:

The Easter holidays are over and the kids are back to school so Mummy gets to create again 🙂 This morning I have made a spring birthday card (see the flowers 🙂 ) for the Forever Friends Challenge.

Here is another of my embossing samples ready for my class at Cullen Crafts this month, I had a notebook with all our website stuff in and I thought it could do with a little decoration. I took the challenges from Alsoorts Challenge blog – no DP’s, The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge – How does your Garden Grow and Stamp, Scrap and Doodle challenge – Wings and came up with this:
For those who wish to know, the background paper was made by heat embossing stamped images and then going over the paper with sponged ink, once dry, wipe a cloth over the embossing and voila, you images show through 🙂

I am teaching a 3D class over at Cullen Crafts next month and decided to make a 4 way matchbox card as a sample. Stamp Something this week wanted pink somethings, so I set out to make it pink, which is not my normal colour but I am thinking it will be more so in future. Raise the bar had a weather theme, and Totaly Papercrafts had a Lets go Digital theme so I used this really cute digital stamp from Squiggle stamps. Last but not least Stamping for the weekend wanted ribbons and bows.

An acquaintance of ours, who we do framing for, has opened up a new gallery in Cullen to sell her pictures and I wanted to make her a good luck card (didnt get chance last week as I was too busy cutting the mounts for her opening) I took the sketch from Truly Scrumptious this week and made what turned out to be a very “Springy” card – it didnt start out that way but I love the result.
Everybody Art Challenge and Crafty Cardmakers wanted a spring card, Papertake Weekly and Crafty Crations both had an Anything Goes theme.
