Crazy 4 Challenges, Play Date Cafe

I've made a card for my hubby for Fathers' Day this Sunday using the layout from Crazy 4 Challenges C4C151, just because I love him and he's the dad to our wonderful kids....thanks for being there for me Ollie.  I used the colour scheme from Play date cafe for last weeks challenge #146 - black and white with a splash of Lime. Thanks for taking a peek

MojoMonday, Shabby Tea Room


Today I had so much trouble selecting a colour theme and in the end the ribbon decided for m eand it fitted perfectly with the Shabby Tea Room challenge #129 'Summer Cottage", I've used the MojoMonday #256 design for my layout...I'm feeling so rusty after my break but I do like my finished card.  Thanks for taking a peek

Fathers' Day card

It's Fathers' Day next weekend and this card needs to be in the mail today... it was a bit tricky making a male card this time as most of my masculine stamps are wood mounted and these I chose not to bring with me because of the storage space problem in our caravan. Anyway I did manage to find this comical one and added my own sentiments. I was planning to make this card with a tapering shape like my friend Vikki but in the end decided I should've cut the shape first so it's just a tri-fold. Thanks for taking a peek...see you again

Sympathy card

Hello fellow stampers, I'm card making today from my tiny table in our caravan....yeah...but at least I am at it again. Also wonderful to be back sharing on Skype with my friend Vikki.
I've just made this simple card today for a aunt who recently lost her husband, the background of the embossing is faintly pale green...but the pic doesn't do it justice.
Thanks for taking a peek...have a super creative weekend

Oh ... it's so good to be back at my desk having a fiddle with my stamps :-)

I've made an easel card today, using these great abstract flowers from the Fantastic Florals set from Chocolate Baroque .... no bling just stamping.....sigh!!

Thanks for taking a peek.... Robyn
