Purple Lil Little Lolita Willow

Hi all,

Am I glad it has cooled down somewhat here in Melbourne as the weekend was so hot!!! Friday evening we had a family night in the Park for Charlie's Kinder which was lovely meeting up with other mum's and dad's and seeing all the Children enjoying themselves!! Then Sunday Charlie went for a drive out with daddy, Harvey went for a sleep, so lucky for me I got to play in my craft room!!! 

It seems I need a tap on my nose as unfortunately, I have picked up the boys cold and my nose has not stopped running today:-( At least it is this week and not next as we have lots of appointments for Harvey next as well as a class and finally getting my hair cut and coloured!!

Over at Tickled Pink they are having their last challenge which is USE A LOLITA and they have some great prizes up for grabs:
  1st  - 5 DIGITAL Stamps of your choice!
2nd - 3 Digital Stamps of your choice

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all well and enjoying your week so far. Today I bring you a card which I have made using the beautiful Teen Fairy Mia from Mo's Digital Pencil, I included hearts as it was valentines this week and yes I did receive some flowers and Charlie and I made chocolate muffins for daddy with punched out hearts made into little tags using cocktail sticks and put names/words on each of them!!!

 I just loved how the colours worked on this card, it came about from the Mad for Markers challenge which was to use Pink/Red R's or RV copic colours. Below is a close up of the image and this time I used Nestabilities Labels Seventeen for the sentiment inside the card!
 The papers are an old Kaiser collection 'Made with Love', pearls which I coloured using copic Y35, and also Kaiser lace. The boarders were created using a MS boarder punch and of course Kindy Glitz for her wings!!

All White except Image!!

Hello bloggers

Hope you all had a lovely weekend, can't believe it has been and gone already!! Took the boys to Kaisercraft at the DFO on Saturday morning, mum got to have a wonder and purchase just a few things, whilst Charlie had his face painted for the first time with a spiderman theme:
 He was so proud of it that he did not want to take it off before going to bed, but I can assure you this was not staying on as I did not want red & black bedding!!!  Anyway, Friday evening I managed to do some crafting and I made a card to fit in with a few challenges:
This was something that I had never tried before using all white except the image, which was a challenge but good fun, this image is from D'Arcy's Diaries part of the Teddy Bo & Co Group, the large heart was cut out using nestabilities as was the image using mega ovals LG and the tiny hearts were punched using a 'personal impressions' punch the sentiment was a stamp that I had in my stash and then embellished with pearls and ribbon.

If you have not done so already it is worth checking out http://www.hookedoncraft.com/ as for the month of February they are having a Birthday Sale and it is FREE postage worldwide on retail orders over $75, and also not forgetting over at Bizzy Becs she has lots of new and exciting goodies for 2012.

1st Day at Kinder

Well today it was my sons first day at Kinder, he was so excited we had everything ready the night/day before including his snacks in the new lunch bag, which he was so proud of, we had labelled everything which he helped by putting his name into the label printer!!!  For his first day I made him a special card and included $5 to do as he wished (his choice to put it in his money box!) When he sat down for breakfast, I gave him the envelope to open and his face was priceless, he was so pleased that he wanted to take it to show his new teacher. Here is the card:
As well as our words, I included stickers inside the card that read remember: enjoy, shine, laugh & friends x
Charlie & Harvey

When I collected Charlie from Kinder we went for a special lunch together where he got to have a Chino with chocolate sprinkled on top and a marshmallow (his favourite) and an extra large cookie, which he did share a small piece with his brother, so all in all a good day was had. So proud of you Charlie x

The card was made using the Kaisercraft 'Class of '87 Collection' along with Kaiser stickers for wording some ribbon from my stash and a button which I coloured with copics to match the image.
The image is one of the many digi images from Mo Manning, I just love her images.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge
