Wow, I don’t know the last time I actually made so many cards lol. I am having lots of fun, trying a few new techniques and using a few old favourites. I really like the dream card, the “bad or fattening” one is cool too. Not sure about that frog card, it just wouldn’t behave haha!

Anyhow I stamped the Dark Room Door image first, then made a mask out of some scrap card. I placed it on the card, sprayed with home made glimmer sprays, then while it was still wet stamped with the Tim Holtz swirly stamp. Did that 11 times ;o) then painted the buildings and water using distressing inks. I stamped the Dark Room Door lamps and did a very fussy, cutting. Distressed those with distressing inks and adhered them with mounting tape.. Stamped the word explore in the top right corner. Wow.. It doesn’t sound like much work, but it was, x11 HAHA!

Wow talk about being in a crafting mood.. Ok I don’t know how much is me being in a creative mood and how much is me just procrastinating so that I don’t have to finish my travel ATC’s. Ugh! I have just gotten to a spot and now I have no idea what to do next.. bah!
So anyhow I’ve found this cool site, StampTv and they have some really cool challenges, so I have partaken in 4 of them and I am just trying to think of something for the 5th challenge. It’s another colour challenge. Now I know 4 cards in 4 days isn’t alot for some, but for me it is LOL. I really struggle. I spend way to long thinking about things.
Anyhow the first card was a Colour challenge (red white and black) the second card was a technique challenge (smacking acetate), third card is a random challenge (I think it was haha) which was boy themed card and the forth card was a sketch challenge. Lots of fun. The girls there all seem to do a different type of card to me. I think that my style has changed a little from doing so many atc’s. I think I am developing my craft HAHA!
I hope you enjoy looking. Leave a comment if you wish. You know I’d love it ;)

Here are some recent ATC’s that I have made. Some are for Atcoz, some for CuteStampers. I really like some of these.. What’s YOUR fav? I have spares of some of these so if you comment. I may send you the one you like (if available) :) I really like the “all things grow with love” and the weather one is so cute. The background paper has been run through the cuttlebug to make the rain. But rather than have it bumpy side out, it is the other way around.

Wow I can’t believe how fast the days are flying by. Last month at Allcraftz was NSD/W here are all the things I made for the challenges. Mostly the sketch challenges were all I achieved. I didn’t win anything though, I don’t even know who did win LOL. I did 4 cards, 6 ATC’s and one Lo. Not bad for a weekends work. You could do the challenges over a week, but I find that too long and drawn out. I was thinking of
doing another Challenge but I ended up going off to Brisbane for the P!NK concert.
Pink was so AWESOME! I had the most fun. It was so hot and tiring too, we had to stand for ages, and sit on the ground lots too. Was definitely worth it though. When she came out the pain disappeared lol. She talked to us all, gave lots of eye contact and the stunts she did were AMAZING!! I would go again!

Here is my ATC for Nova. Her theme was Birds or Butterflies, so I did birds, but I did give the girl butterfly wings ;) The image came from a challenge at Art Adventure. Even though I’ve missed their challenge by a few months, I still liked the image and wanted to do something with it. I hope Nova likes it.
