quick card for my cousin who is moving away

here is a card that i made this morning for my cousin who is off to live in Brisbane for a few going to miss her. I used my cuttlebug for embossing..plane from everyday paper dolls & stamping inking from stampin up

Friday night

Good evening 
Kids are in all is reasonably quiet in the house. School holidays are underway and kids got to stay up a bit later than normal. This afternoon i got my parcel i was eagerly awaiting seemed to take forever to arrive! I got 2 new cricut cartridges...Everyday Paper dolls  & freshly picked. I haven't had a chance to play with them yet but will do soon.
I also got a CUTTLEBUG!!!! its supposed to be my christmas present but hey it arrived early & one must check these things before the 30 day of return runs out..luckily i did as it is missing a thin die adapter which im assuming is what helps cut the free cuttlekids dies that came with it. Im hoping they send it out soon or else the free gift is rather pointless to me.
I love the cuttlebug so far though & even went shopping for more embossing folders on the weekend just gone....i got 2 adorable embossing folders of butterflies & cupcakes!
Im hoping to get into more scrapbooking these holidays..dont have a lot planned for the kids to do....they can play outside as the weather is becoming nice and to love spring...apart from the sneezing & blocked up feeling with sinus! 

have a great weekend

Frame cards

i did the eb card swap a week ago i think but i forgot to post them off...very slack of me...but here are some pics of cards i did recently!!
The eb card swap challenge was to do a frame with a winter theme and also to include paint! Im thinking a scorepal would have made my life so much easier...or even if i could just find where i put my provocraft scoring blade for my trimmer would have been handy too!!

I folded up the frames....cut some gauze...did some stamping & some colouring..added kaiser rhinestones for the eyes added gold & brown paint and some inking around the frame

One of the ladies in my scrap group is pregnant & she is having a baby boy...i made her a card which im yet to give her
I cut out a purple ( looks pink in the picture) pregnant mum & bow with my cricut, added some rubons cuttlebug embossed the side and added kaiser flowers & a Joy brad. The yellow polka dotted paperwith bow looks like a gift...which being pregnant is all about!! its an amazing gift to be blessed with!!

thanks for stopping by!!

Losing day Friday

Yesterday my kids school had their sports carnival. It was a nice sunny day without too much wind..which was surprising as it is always blowing a gale there!
I made the kids some posters for their faction redback spiders with my cricut & design studio. It was basic as i had been sick all week with a horrible head cold or something so did them thursday night.
 The spider was from stretch your imagination & the font was the stamped cartridge. I then made one for my other child which used the spider & web from paperdoll dress ups and i think it was basecamp for the font. I will find a pic of that one later.
There faction team didnt win ...they came last...but they had a great day.
After getting home we got ready to watch the fremantle dockers play at the mcg in melbourne. Sadly they didnt make it further into the finals either!! They had a great year & im sure they can play even better next year!!

hope everyone has a good weekend...its the 9th anniversary of the twin was such a scary time & being heavily pregnant with my daughter i remember thinking i didnt want to bring her into such a world of hate & destruction. To all those that lost someone or many that they loved i hope you find a listening ear & a hug this weekend.
