Happy Birthday Fiona!

It's Fiona's birthday today.

This is made using Kaisercraft Tigerlily paper pack and StampIt SISET060. Hope Fiona doesn't mind the age reference ;)

Nautical, but nice?

Will be posting this to a challenge as soon as I find the address - I saved it to my netbook not my laptop - the criteria showed chocolate cupcakes with white fluffy icing and navy disks with white anchors on them. This is my response.
Found it! How could I forget? I've created my project for the Scrapbook Boutique Challenge - link here:

Stamp used is a from a Just Rite set. Sizzix Wood-grain embossing folder for ocean and sky texture. Coloured pencils. Memento ink.

My new pens!

I have been colouring with the fabulous new Spectrum Noir pens at work for some time. I now have my own full set (thanks, Nat) so I had to have a play at home. The image was purchased from Elisabeth Bell Designs and is called A Tasty Read. I love using it on bookmarks.
Spectrum colours used are TB3, TB5 (tip to tip); DR3, DR5; FS2, FS3; TB2 (shadows on white blouse); GB8, EB5; TN2 (under TN7), TN7, TN8; DG2.

Coffee on my mind? Whatever gave you that idea?

Pam brought in a new batch of Washi tape on Monday, and the selection included a coffee tape. "What would you do with that?" asks Nat.
And this -
Tim reckons I'm addicted to coffee. I reckon I could give it up easily - just not this week!

Last minute birthday card

You have to love those papers that do all the work for you! This paper sat in the shop for months until I made a couple of variations on this theme ... then the sheets raced out the door :)
I'm one of those terrible people that leave things to the last minute. It's an awful habit and I'm not sure why I do it. I seem to need that sense of pressure to get motivated.  I have finally made a birthday card file so I can hopefully begin to overcome this problem (though I still have to print the Month/Date sheets for each page).  Given my passion for card-making there is no reason at all to procrastinate. I suspect it's innate - I was the same at school - projects, assignments, exam study ... all left to the last possible minute :(

Look - A Card!!!

Finally a chance to show one of my creations. A C&S trying out two new embossing folders.

School Holidays

As you may have deduced from the time between these posts, I need more time! I HAVE made lots of cards since my first post - you can see them on our work blog -
I suspect the problem is I'd rather spend time creating than blogging ...
