Anything but a card…

It was so much fun to step out of the box for this one and make a little *Get Well* tin. The tin itself, as well as the gorgeous Crate Paper, came from a kit Madonna got at a Craft Show make and take for me. (Thanks Mad!) Ok, enough blather, here it is:

Ok, hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday. I will catch up with you all soon,

Really simple…

….because I still haven’t found my Mojo :) Mama asked me to emboss some roses in different colours for her and I happened to think that silver on Basic Gray would look awesome…and I think it does.


Of course my photo doesn’t do it justice!!! I also used some Pale Plum, Perfect Plum and some of my hoarded Rich Razzleberry for the base. The ribbon is the Razzleberry polka dot. That’s about it really…I told you it was simple :)

Hope you are all well and happy and having a wonderful Wednesday,

The swine flu stole my Mojo

I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if everyone had stopped visiting me, I’ve been gone so long :) That swine flu is NASTY and it took ages for me to start feeling better. It wrecked my back too, with all the coughing. I’m such a sook, aren’t I? But I have made something…not that I think it’s blog worthy, but it’s all I’ve got right now ;)


When Mad was here a few weeks ago she was looking through a catalogue (not sure from where….Target maybe?) and she saw this colour combo and challenged me to use it. Tangerine Tango, Night of Navy, Kraft and Bashful Blue. I’ve used the Artfully Asian stamp set, the Eyelet border, Large Oval and Scalloped Oval punches and some Navy ribbon. The buttons are from Mama’s stash (she has some awesome buttons!).

Like I said, it’s nothing special, but it has kind of got me back into the swing of things and I hope that I can get back into it soon. I hope you are all having a wonderful Father’s day and I’ll see you soon.

Swine Flu!!!!!!

Hi there everyone :) I'm sure you've been wondering what on earth has happened to me....or maybe you didn't even notice I've been missing....LOL! When I told you last Sunday that I had a bad cold I had absolutely no idea just how sick I was going to get. I finally got to see my doctor yesterday and he thinks that I most probably have had Swine Flu! Without a test there is no way of being 100% certain, but the symptoms indicate that it is. I didn't bother with the test (even though Dr Ross offered it) because the health system is under enormous pressure with the Swine Flu problem.

I am slowly improving, but have very little energy and a very dodgy back after all the coughing! Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that I'm still alive and hope to be back to normal asap! I probably won’t be posting again this week until the MDUC card on Sunday…I still need lots of R&R before I can sit up long enough to create something.

I hope that you are all being super vigilant about hygiene and taking your vitamins :) Believe me when I tell you that you DO NOT want to get this flu…I have NEVER been so sick in my whole life! It was horrible and I hate the thought of any of you guys suffering like that. I fully understand how it can kill people…last Friday I could barely breathe and anyone with breathing problems (like asthma) is definitely in trouble if they get this flu.

OK, gotta go back to bed….see you soon!

MDUC #20!!!!

Wow! I can’t believe we’re up to TWENTY challenges! The only time I missed doing them was when I was in hospital :) I have loved every one of them…though some were more challenging than others!

Today’s MDUC challenge is no exception. It’s Father’s Day here next month, and so Kellie set this fortnight’s challenge as *Father’s Day*. I don’t give my father a card (long story) so I thought I’d make one for Abby to give to my brother, Shaun, for the day. Of course it had to be purple and for Abby’s sake it’s got some glitter and bling :)


I’ve used some of the US in-colour Rich Razzleberry (ribbon & layer) {thanks Leslie} as well as Lovely Lilac and Lavender Lace. Tilda is stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with SU markers & an aquapainter. The bling is Basic Grey & the glitter is SU Supernova. The wooden letters and heart were from a sale & don’t have the manufacturers name on the packaging. They were coloured with Copics.

I hope that both Abby & Shaun like the card…my other sister, Anna, thinks they will. OK, gotta go back to bed now…I’ve managed to catch a cold on top of the sore back and I’m feeling rather miserable. Hope it doesn’t last long! I’ll see you again soon,
