Hi, I'm busy getting the kids back to school things ready this week, It's sad that the holidays are almost over. We've had a very relaxing time.
The card today has a beach feel to it. Using the Nature's Nest stamp set from the Summer Mini. I've used the reptile skin technique to make the seaweed, that was Alex's idea. Very cool. And used the markers directly onto the shell stamp to get that multi coloured effect.

Stamps: Nature's Nest, Sincere Salutations
Ink: Choc Chip, VersaMark
Markers: Choc Chip, Close to Cocoa, Really Rust, More Mustard
Card: Confetti White, Kraft, Really Rust, More Mustard
Tools: Stamp a ma jig,
Accessories: linen thread, paper towel, crystal effects, dimensionals

Mojo Monday 120.

I had a play with this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch today. They always have such great sketches to inspire us. As I found out yesterday I'm to be an Aunty again I thought I would make a baby card. We now have two babies in our family arriving this year, one in March and the other in July. It's so very exciting.
Anyway, I used the Something Sweet stamp set from the Summer Mini, making a baby rattle. (Can really do a lot with this set.) I don't know if the baby is a boy or girl so used Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze with Close to Cocoa. The large scallop circle is a Die Cut from Blooms Again and I used the Circle Scissor Plus (Summer Mini) for the pink circle.
Stamp Sets: Something Sweet, Warm Words
Ink: Close to cocoa, Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze
Card: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Close to Cocoa, Pink Pirouette
DSP: Urban Garden
Punches: scallop edge punch, 1 3/4" circle
Tools: Circle Scissor Plus, stamp a ma jig, mat pack & tool, daubers
Accessories: Die Cut Blooms Again, Flower Fusion Too, silver brads, 1 1/4" grosgrain ribbon Pink Pirouette, taffeta ribbon Pretty in Pink, mini glue dots, dimenionals

Happy New Year.

Happy New Year everyone, I hope your all enjoying the Holiday Season. I had a fantastic Christmas with the family, little Zach really got into the hang of opening presents we had paper flying everywhere. For New Years Eve we went to Southbank for the early fireworks and meet up with Leanne and family. The kids had a huge time playing in the water and watching the fireworks. We even spotted a possum.
I want to show you some of the amazing Christmas cards I've received. They are just too good not to. I love receiving hand made cards because I know they have been made with love.
