Oh where Oh where are the weeks going!!!!  Last Wednesday I took the boys with a friend into the city on the train to see the Christmas Windows and the display in the Casino, it was magical they loved it.  Have also been working on a few things one was Thank You cards ordered by the playgroup I take the boys to, and something Christmassy which you will have to wait until next week to see..... Oh and guess what, I managed to get a couple of scrapbooking pages completed, yeah!!!!
 The image I used was a Stamping Bella stamp called Tabitha the teacup girl, isn't she cute!!! The papers were from Kaisercraft 6½" Paper Pad - Bonjour collection, then using nestabilities for the circles and adding Ribbon, Peals and Flowers most of which were purchased from my LSS (Creative Dreams, Boronia, Vic).

Make a Wish for Christmas!!

Phew, it is very warm today and thankfully we have cooling!!  I did pop to the shops this morning and my 4½ year old son wanted to buy a water blaster and oh yes, I let me!! So he thought it great fun when we got home to get mummy in the back yard and get her wet - it was actually very refreshing.  Thankfully, it is now quiet time whilst the other sleeps so managed to complete this card.....
This card has on it the lovely Make a Wish digi image from Mo Manning and of course coloured with copics, the paper used was Paper Salon - dazzle: blizzard and the pink is the reverse, along with glitter card for the snowflakes in white & blue. The sentiment was printed out on the computer.

The spider flower is from ScrapFX which I heat embossed with Summer Lilac Sparkle and Soft, then added lots of flowers and sparkle....
