Here's my cheery card for the Dynamic Duos DD#44 colour challenge - yellow and black with ribbon, I've used the layout at the Paper Players PP#137. Thanks for taking a peek

OOOOWW!!! I'm making a second card on a Monday:-) I love the colours at Annabelle Stamps colour challange ac158 - choosing the watermelon colour was a challenge in itself and then this morning I see Retro Sketches rs#55 layout and there you go - I'd already die cut the borders and ribbon just matched fabulously. Thanks for taking a peek
One of the following themes:
April Fool's Day or Trees (in honor of Arbor Day) or FriendsHi from me on a rather windy but sunny day ....I've been wanting to submit a card to the Card chain challenge at Society of Stampaholics for some time now so here's my card for March ..I'm just going to make it in time...I've used a combination of the themes they had for inspiration.

A square card this afternoon for Paper Craft Crews #33 card sketch - and now that we are at our new address I can post off some of my cards to friends and family....the pile is growing. (Still not at all happy with the photo colours... :-( Thanks for taking a peek
It's been a while since I tackled a 10 minute Craft Dash challenge but thought I'd have a go at this weeks #13 with craft, green and brown colours....to help I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #77. I'm a bit rusty it took me 11 minutes 25 sec to do this one - my ricrac came unstuck as I was about to stick the layers onto the card but at least it got me going this afternoon I was feeling a bit tired after a busy day yesterday painting out the inside of the cupboards to freshen them up. Thanks for taking a peek

I've enjoyed a lazy day today and slowly this afternoon this card came together - so slowly that I've missed posting it to the Colour Throwdown CTD232 challenge anyway I've used the soft colours and the layout at Retro Sketches rs#54 .... I'm not liking the colours on my new camera though mmmm have to ask my son about it. Thanks for taking a peek.
AND include at least one piece of METAL EMBELLISHMENT.
Another gorgeous day here in Central Queensland - this morning I was determined to set up my table and unload all my stamping gear from the caravan so I could make my first card in our new home... it's a start, I have a nice view from my window and I can wait a few more weeks for all our belongings to arrive.
I decided to do the challenge at Our Creative Corner because I just love the lantern in the inspirational photo - my photo colours are out a bit as my patterned paper is more green than blue. I love the metal button I found in my stash and the sentiment is true... new town, a place to meet new friends. Hope you're enjoying your week and thanks for taking a peek.

Hello from me this Monday morning ....moving day today - we've found a house to rent in Yeppoon, QLD and until our furniture arrives we will live in the van at the property...yippee!!!
So my card this morning fills four challenges..
And over at Shopping Our Stash 92 - Border Punches - last night I was thinking about making a dress using the border dies and a heart cutout - so I layered them up with some ribbon and finished the top off with some bling .... the request at a new blog challenge site for me - Craft your Passion challenge 152 asked you to use an odd number of embellishments...and here's my feminine birthday card with a background created with Shabby Shutters and Broken China distress inks.
Have a super week and Thanks for taking a peek
