Clock Romance

A friend of mine ordered this clock for an 18 year old girl. I didn't have a clue what to do with it but decided on the Graphic 45 papers with roses, feathers and pearls. The sayings are all rub ons and the butterflies are kindy glitzed with pearl bodies. What do you think....will it do?
Have a wonderful day everyone.

Baby Girl

I apologise for the quality of this photo but it was taken on my phone. The silver thing you can see is actually a teddy bear charm. The stamps are Just Rite, stamped and layered onto corresponding Nesties. The lace was gathered up by a thread and then taped down with the button in the middle. Two fancy head pins, wrinkled pink ribbon and a charm finished my embellishment. I used a sketch but for the life of me can't remember which one. The lace is gorgeous and I'm a bit sorry now that I put the ribbon over it. Oh well too late now.
Thanks for visiting and I'm hoping to be back to being more active with my blog again.
I had two weeks school holiday where Dean and his girlfriend needed taxiing around then the last two weeks have been hectic too. My car turns automatically towards Sarina now and sometimes it's 3 or 4 trips a day. Cuts into the day somewhat.

Soft Suede Yesteryear

My friend Jan, loves these Yesteryear cards for the males in her family. Here is one that I made several weeks ago. Someone I know said when she was ordering a pack of soft suede that the colour would be perfect with these Stamp It 9up pictures of Yesteryear images. So I filed that away in my mind and pulled out the soft suede when I had to make this card. Well Charmaine was right!!!! Perfect match. So using black as the base and highlight I made this card. Not much to explain except that the greetings label is actually straight on the card. lol
Jan told me yesterday that her grandson who is a teenager thought the card just fantastic and actually asked about who made it and where his Gran had bought it. For a teenager to go into the in's and out's of a card that's given to him is amazing!!
It's wonderful when you get feedback on the cards you make.

I have been missing in action I know, but with some excuse I feel. I purchased a kit from Sharon at No Time To Stamp in the US called K&Co Blue Awning. It includes the 12 x 12 paper pad, co-ordinating ribbons, a pack of Blue Awning Grand Adhesions flowers, pearls and bling to match.
The amount of cards one can get out of a 12 x 12 paper pad is awesome so I have been purchasing extra accessories in the same Blue Awning range as embellishments.
Up to date I have cut 44 card kits out of the papers and cardstock to match all waiting to be put together with embellishments. I'm determined to use as much of the paper as possible.

Then on top of all that, it's school holidays here for two weeks. We are now into the second week and my son has had his girlfriend here to stay since last Thursday. They both have jobs but start and finish at different times so I've been backwards and forwards to Sarina nearly everyday. I don't mind but it does cut into my crafting time. lol

Finally as another addiction, I joined Facebook which I thought I'd never do. So now I'm playing Farm Ville and Farm Town. In between running to Sarina and back, I'm checking that my crops are growing and haven't withered and died ├žause I haven't been able to harvest them. pmsl

Right I'm at the end of my long winded post and now I'm off to check out blogs on my Google Reader. Yep, another addiction. Oh yes, and of course organise breakfast. lol
Have a wonderful day everyone.
