Hello Everyone...Happy Sunday..

Mine is nearly at the end but was a lovely day and managed to knock out three cards yesterday for an order of 50...50!!!!...but one of those orders when you say " What would you like"..." Oh! anything will be lovely"..except!! I think I have figured her out...she has a lot of elderly friends and being a caregiver also, she wants cards for any occasion....[ Got it.] I should have plenty to show over the next 2 months or so..

Back to today....Thanks so much to all who joined in with our challenge over the last 2 weeks over at LACY SUNSHINE   ..,

Today  we have a new fortnight challenge starting and it  is "PASSION FOR FASHION"

So we have new dresses...pretty fashion related..

For my card share I chose this gorgeous image from the LACY SUNSHINE STORE 


All coloured with copics..and lots of layers on her skirt and hat....

Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and I made heart butterflies with added pearls..

Another side view as somehow I lost my front view..papers from my stash...the birthday sentiment was a freebie inside a magazine...and that is about that..

Hello Everyone..

A lovely Sunday afternoon today and just finished work, with the rest of the afternoon off till 4pm when it starts all over again..had a few extra clients this weekend and they all keep me pretty busy.

Have a vintage card to share today for a challenge at Vintage Challenge and the theme is birdcages and birds...and that sounded like a fun thing to do.. so here we are.

The sweet image is from the  Graphics Fairy..gosh! there is lot going on here

Flowers from "I am Roses"..[my win on the Emerald Faeries challenge in Dec]

Papers from my stash.. birdcage die from Poppy stamps...chipboard bird on a branch..pearls..Gesso and a feather I found floating on the ground a long time ago and I just had to pick it up..

A closer view...

This sweet frame with a bird is from Rosies Studio..set of 6 for $3..could not go wrong there..and they are all different..and it had the Gesso treatment too..

And a side view..the flower behind the "Love "sentiment is from an old vintage Wedding gown..One of my clients cuts them off a gown she has at very nice of her.

So that's me for a lazy afternoon on the couch...too hot today for anything else and it is Art Deco this weekend here in Napier..planes buzzing around all day and visitors and locals all dressed up to kill.
Last night they were in evening attire and looked stunning..about 3000 people are gathered in town for we went for a wander last night checking everyone out..

Okay the planes have now upset my dog Harry..he is out their barking his head off and chasing them from one side of the house to the other..I swear one day he will catch one..

See you tomorrow and thanks ever so much for stopping by..

Paw print ribbons from my stash...and so is the little love dog charm/button.

The second challenge is SWEET 7 DESIGNS CHALLENGE   [Puppy Love]

Well, that's me for tonight...been a long hot day..but did notice driving down  a local street , the leaves were flying off the trees and rolling down the road, so that means Autumn is so very close..
