Three cards made this weekend

Hello to all

I'm quite chuffed with my achievement of this weekend.

I have managed to make three cards.

We had a great time this arvo. We went out to Bethells Beach and climbed the sand dunes. The girls went down them on their boogie board, alot of fun we had.

Well with my mother's card made last night, I made my MIL's card today. Her birthday is just 2 days after my mothers.

My MIL lives a 3 1/2 hour drive away in the lovely city of Taupo. We visit there about 3-4 times a year.

I'm entering this card into three challenges.

*The Sweet Stop
*ABC Design
*The Sweetest Thing - Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 79

Time to have any early night as I didn't lay my head down until 1.30am this morning.

Well it's WAY past my bedtime, but just a quick post before I hit the sack.

It's my mummma's birthday next Sunday, and I've made her this special Tilda card.

I'm really wrapped with the outcome.

Also I get to enter it into a couple of challenges too. Sooo excited.

I coloured her with Copics and used my Cuttlebug for embossing and Diecuts.


And the challenges I'm entering her into are:

*Stampavie and more Challenge #102
*Papertake Weekly Challenge - Cutie Patootie
*Charisma Cardz Challenges - Anything But Square
*Magnolia Stamp Lovers: Paper Piecing
*One Stop Craft Challenge - Challenge # 90
*Sunday Sketch & Stamp: Challenge #33

Well I think I better go beddie byes.

Night all.

DP2 Challenge - Challenge 41 Paper Piercing

Good evening folks

Tonight's card is for a special wee man who's turning 5, "big school boy".

His mother is organising a "cowboy themed birthday party", so I hunted down a cowboy image, found it at the marvellous Mo Manning's Digi Image store. Anthony on his Hobby Horse. So appropriate. He was so much fun to colour.

I'm entering him in the DP2 Challenge ~ Challenge 41 Paper Piercing

* Creative Card Crew ~ It's Sketch Time
* Lexi's Creations
* One Stitch at a time - Digi Image

Here he is, coloured with Copics of course!

Magnolia Down Under Challenge

Hi all

Well this is my first Magnolia Challenge.

I've chosen to enter today's card in the Magnolia Down Under Challenge, my choice is SUMMER, as it's Winter here and I long for Summer again.

Will be here again soon enough I know. And this Winter here in Auckland, New Zealand hasn't been too shabby if I do say so myself.

Believe it or not my girls went for a swim at Bethells beach during the week, was a sunny day with no wind. Now we don't even get many days without wind in the Summer, so we were blessed.

Anyway, here she is.
