Thanks to you all for commenting on my humble little blog. I've met some new people along the way and it's been fun sharing a little bit of me with you as well. I will certainly be doing some more give-aways soon.

Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Mellow Moss, Whisper White
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Mellow Moss
Accessories: Hodgepodge, Gingham
Today I've made a card using two of my new stamp sets: Paisley BG and Reasons to Smile. And I just love them. Paisley has always been a favourite of mine and when I saw it was in the new catalogue, it was definately the first stamp I ordered. Reasons to Smile is one of the Hostess Free Stamps Sets you can redeem when having workshops/demonstrations.
I'm having a giveaway. Leave a comment on this post and tell me where you are from. On Wednesday night, 25th April, I'm going to draw a name and that person will receive this card. Thanks and enjoy!

Stamp Set: Delight in Life
Cardstock: Whisper White, Apricot Appeal, Blush Blossom, Pretty in Pink
Ink: Basic Black, Apricot Appeal
Accessories: Gingam ribbon, Oval Scallop Punch (Carl), Cuttlebug, Paper Piercing
I made this card a few days ago after purchasing this patterned paper from 'Around the Block'. I thought it matched in nicely with the 'Bloom Dots' embossing folder. I must say, I'm very happy about getting the Cuttlebug. It's so much fun to use!!

ADAM & KYLE
Well, we did have a nice Easter time. Craig & Renae came down from Perth to spend a week at their holiday home. We spent time at the beach, had nice dinner's and lots of time just chatting. The boys went out fishing on Saturday morning and Warren came home with a nice Dhu fish. Yummy!! Kyle, especially loved seeing his cousin Adam. They can spend hours together, playing lego, colouring-in, talking and just hanging out together. We can't wait to see them again.
Card Recipe - Stamp set: Fishy Friends
Stamped on Watercolour paper and coloured in with Watercolour pencils. One of my favourite things to do at the moment. Also did the masking technique for the starfish which I've only just tried out. That will be another favourite of mine.
Card Recipe: Stamp Set: Looks like Spring with co-ordinating Spring Showers DP. The scallop square is a die from the Cuttlebug.
Card Recipe: Stamp Set - Looks like Spring. Used the Cuttlebug Swirl on the Handsome Hunter cardstock and swiped it with Whisper White ink to make it stand out. Have used the 'rock-n-roll' technique on the flower.
Card Recipe: Stamp set - Birthday best (had this stamp set for a while now but have only just started playing with it) Used the masking technique for the cupcakes - so much fun. Love this background for the Cuttlebug as well.
I've more to upload for you soon. Keep watching. Am waiting for my new SU supplies which should be arriving any day now so I will be trying out some stamp sets from the new Catalogue. Very exciting and can't wait.
