One World One Heart

My poor ‘winner’. It seems after much searching and clearing of my desk that I accidentally gave the atc’s ment for her, away :( So I contacted her and she give her any and she would be happy. Now I didn’t actually give the last of the ones that was lost in the mail away, but alas I can’t find the darn things. So I have sent my winner (Elizabeth) these four. When the missing ‘friends’ ones turn up again. I will forward her one as a little thanks for being so patient with this forgetful atc-addict

The first atc is my Great Great Grandmother Margaret Burns. I love that picture, so when I was looking for the ‘right’ image I thought of her photo.
The second atc is lovely and textured with the scrunched paper underneath with gold on top, then stamped and a cut-out on it.
The third is a stamped background, word stamp, and an embossed bird cut out of stamped cardstock. ALL TIM HOLTZ on that atc.. Well apart from the clear embossing powder ;)
The fourth atc is embossed image, embossed tape, punchy flower (cuttlebugged) and a colour wash using re-inkers and water.

Winners ARE grinners!

No photos to share this post. I am working on something 'TOP SECRET’ ok.. not really. I am working on my A to Z album for Purple Scraps, so that has been keeping me busy, and what I have done so far I can’t show you :P :P I have some awesome news from the CC, I won for the card challenge. YAY! Thank you so much to Chelle, she is a demonstrator for Stampin’up so if you need anything, buy from her! Scramin’up. The Lo’s are still up for voting, so if you are a member go vote for the LO’s you love!! While you’re at it stop and say g’day..

I won a RAK from the lovely Marnie for my card that I did for her first challenge on Boot Camp Our Way the second challenge is up and almost over, so why not take a look and get ready for challenge three.. Unless your superwoman and you can get the challenge done in 2 days.. DARE YA!
Also my mother won, so double thanks Marnie! Can’t wait for the pressie.
Now as a coincidence, Marnie was the only person to comment on my last post, so a RAK is going out to you m’dear! I am thinking bling, or how about returning the book you lent me a million years ago… which I just re-found for the 7th time… Anyhow start stalking that postie ;)

Thanks for reading, and remember you never know what may happen if you leave a comment!

Recent ATC’s and a Card

BelieveAt Christmas time one of the presents my mother gave me was a cute little toadstool, and 2 pictures, on of a fairy and one of a pixie. I had to make an ATC with the two items (only 1 picture). It was my present, but a challenge also. Anyhow I made this ‘Believe’ atc. Stamped the background in silver and a spare piece of background paper. Cuttlebugged the piece of spare cardstock. I opaled the Toadstools and put while paper behind it, put the fairy on dimensional tape. Cut out the piece of cuttlebugged cardstock for a whimsical tree, drew a trunk and went over the embossed image in red shimmer krylon pen and stamped the word believe in on white paper. One of my favourite cards!!

Zetti3Zetti1zetti2Recently I was in my first ever ‘Zetti’ swap. These are the four cards I made. I am not sure if I like them or not LOL.. My favourite is the tea lady.. Had lots of fun Zetti4making these, certainly did a workout on the old imagination ;).

Wishing you happinessLast of is a card I made this weekend as part of Marnie’s “BootCamp Our Way” I had a lot of fun with this card. It has LOTS of gold elements to it. The cuttlebugging I painted over to make it stand out. The butterfly I heat embossed, painted and fussy cut. As well as stamping and outlining the squares in MORE gold :)

Thanks for looking. Leave a comment if you stop by, you never know what might happen!!

I just sent off my red package to JDH, so I hope she likes it. We had to spend $10 to $20 dollars, I went over, but Jacinta made me such a lovely parcel the month before, I don’t think it matters that I went over :) I also thought I might have been late sending it, but she was so nice about it I thought that warranted some extra love.
I sent; KindyGlitz, Altered domino, Altered letter J, Post-it Note holder, Opals Powder, Seed Beads, Buttons, Big Beads, Glitter, Rhinestones, Pearls, 2 Fat Quarters, a stamp, Embroidery Thread.

Purple Scraps Cyber Crop

10 CardsWell it is ages since I attended a Cyber Crop. Got my newsletter for Purple Scraps and thought I might attend this one. I haven’t done much scrapping or card making lately so I thought “why not”. I am so glad I went too. I did 2 Lo’s and 10 cards as part of 3 challenges. I am just starting the 4th challenge an A to Z of me. Luckily though we have until the 6th(ish) of April to get that done. The cards aren’t due til Monday the 16th, but I already did them :). I am so happy with them too. Lots of fun to make them as well. The conditions were that they were versatile, in that they didn’t have “happy birthday” or whatever on the front, so when you have an occasion you can just pull it out and go with it :) FamilyYou also had to do, 2 masculine, 2 feminine and 2 kids cards. The other 4 were up to us to decide what we wanted.
The Lo’s were fun to make too. So long since I last did one. I am surprised I wasn’t rusty :D One had to follow a sketch (our house) and the other (family) had to be something that gave you a ‘pick me up’. As I said on the forum. Michael and Mum give me a pick me up.. Unless I am ready to kill em :D
