A friend's birthday

I embarked on making a card for a special friend who is a master at card making herself!! So I had to come up with a special, different masterpiece. Not so sure about it being a "masterpiece" but I think I did a pretty good job!! I even crocheted the flower!!

Baby Shower invitations

I thought I would start using my blog again. Not so much for the big wide world, (although if that happens - great!) but for myself to keep track of what I make! Here are some baby shower invitations that I made for my new and very special friend Kate. They took me ages but I loved doing it and I love the outcome!

Playing in WA

I have been in WA since beginning of December and I haven't done much card making. But my Mother In-Law invited a few crafty friends around to play and I managed to make some. I even made a card for last weeks JAI sketch challenge and went to post it only to remember that it was after midnight over East and 9:30pm here!! ARGHHH!! So i missed out - oh well!! Posting anyway!

Post it Note Holders

I made these a little while ago with the intent of posting on my blog but since I am terrible at keeping up with blogging (I do have great intentions) I am terribly late. What has really given me a swift kick up the bum is my friend Narelle asked how to make them. So now I am trying to write down instructions that actually make sense... And I thought the easiest way to show her a picture was to put these cute post it note holders on my blog.
