First of all I have to share this beautiful photo I took of the new baby in the backgarden the other week. This is Qaylie at 12 weeks of age and she is just gorgeous. I'm sure there will be plenty of other pics to share too. This weekend I ran a masculine card class and the ladies completed three cards. This uses some old TLC papers, Kaisercraft Script stamp and a greeting from the Sugarloaf 248 stamp set, some Kaisercraft pearls and a die-cut created in Design studio from the Storybook and George cartridges. Love this Bird Call Cuttlebug embossing folder and it always looks good for a masculine card. Stamp is from The Stamps of Life banners4all set. This one for a younger male is made with more stamps from the Sugarloaf 248 stamp set. Last weekend I was involved with Cybercrops at both Scrap of Difference and Home and Scrapped. Scrap of Difference had the theme of Smiles, Frowns and funny faces, so the card challenge had to include scraps from one of our layouts and a face..…

We stayed at Holloways Beach which is approx 10kms north of Cairns city and the beach is not like our South Aussie beaches where we have the soft hard packed sand, it was grainy and moved a lot under foot. In Cairns itself you cannot swim at the beach as the city has a more swampy beachfront which is muddy and tacky with lots of crabs. At this time of the year also, the waters are full of stingers so it is dangerous to swim in the sea unless in an enclosed netted off area for protection. Holloways beach had a small area to do this and the boys liked it but the current was strong and wavy and no sooner would they stand up than wave would come and dump them under again. It became a little much for them af…
Last Christmas season I bought the Kaisercraft North Pole 6.5" x 6.5" paper pad as I really loved the colours of the papers. Of course I really didn't get a chance to use them much because I had already made my cards earlier in the year so have been putting them to use in recent weeks for my cards for this Christmas Season. Inspired by Pinterest above. A sketch from Paper Wishes for World Card Making Day was used for above and below.
Above is another Paper Wishes sketch for World Card Making Day and below is OWH sketch #236.
