Hi all!! Hope you all have had a fantastic week!
This week Keesh has a awesome Inspiration Challenge for us! I just love all the colours and decided to use this cute SU stamp set "Bug's and Kisses", this stamp set is sooo easy to use and I decided to pop up the images to give it that extra dimension.
I went for the colours Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Basic Grey, Black and Craft coordinating with different DSP.
I got into my craft hemp twine which I always forget to use but is quite a nice change.
Well I am off to put my feet up and watch some T.V hehe.
Make sure you go check out the other design team members but clicking below,
Take care,

Hello its that time of the week again! and what a beautiful colour combo Keesh has for us this Friday.
I love "Fifth Avenue" and layered the flower using different DSP and to add a bit of dimension to the flower I made a ruched ribbon, and finished it off with a corduroy button.

Hi all!! I have finally made it!! I have had a hectic weekend and I won't bore you here with all the details hehe.
But I must say this sketch is the mother of all sketches I LOVED IT thanks Keesh.
I used the DSP " Bella Rose" and the stamp sets "Garden Wimsey" and also " Live like you mean it"
You really must give this sketch a go!! It didn't take long at all to whip up, the hard thing is choosing the colours and stamps.
Well I must go to watch our movie we have rented.

It's time again for another ME & MI project.
When I saw this darling tea gift folder I just knew I had to make one.
I have totally cased this design, when you find a good thing ya need to just go with it.
I did change the DSP and stamp set though, and maybe the inside of the folder because I was so excited and didn't pay enough attention to the instructions ( the story of my life).hehe
It was such a fun project to make and didn't take that long at all.
I actually forgot to make the envelope, I have it sitting at home ready to make which I will finish, as it compliments the folder beautifully.
Today is soooo cold and windy, and I am typing this little post at my in laws, nice and early don't get to shocked.
To make this cute project click here, you won't be disappointed, Nicole is such an amazing designer lots of eye candy on her blog! Enjoy.
Thanks for looking and stopping by to say hi.

The beautiful Birthday boy taken at his little party yesterday.

Well my baby Noah is having his 4th Birthday on Tuesday and I thought that I would use karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch as my Inspiration.
Yesterday Noah was given this adorable frog early as one of his birthday gifts from his Auntie. I was in awe of the different colours, that I definitely would not of thought of putting together. I am so going to use this combo again.
I thought Always Artichoke, Baja Breeze and Green Galore were a good match' and it wasn't hard deciding which stamp set to use,  "Wild About You."
I had a lot of fun doing this sketch if you click here it will take you to Karen's amazing blog and fabulous design team.
Have a great week,

Honestly who has stolen this week from me!! hehe
I left my card for this challenge a little on the late side, but i really enjoyed Keesh's Inspirational Challenge this week.
I decided to use Riding Hood Red purely because I wanted to use that luscious wide ribbon, don't ya just love it!!
I used the stamp set "Eastern Blooms" inked with Craft Whisper White, embossed in white on Kraft card stock and coloured in some of the flowers to brighten it up a little.
I have totally gone wild with some faux stitching on this card, it is so much easier than lugging out my huge sewing machine and then trying to find the right colour cotton.

On another note thank you for all your kind thoughts and prayers/emails regarding Sean's Nana.
We had a fantastic time away with the family, meeting new family members etc even under the circumstances.
It was so sad to see the effects of a bad stroke, but she is still fighting and we were able to have some great conversations and laughs.
Its just a waiting game now but feel much better that we got to spend some time with her.
Anyway check below for the other design team eye candy for this week, I still haven't had a chance to check out last weeks so I am off to do some blog stalking.
Have a good one,
