Were the colors that Riley has chosen for this week
And this is my take on those colors again using mainly my Coredinations range that I really like to use.
The bird stamp is from Montarga Stamps and the lace edge punch is a Stampin Up punch that I really like
To use. Enjoy my take for this challenge.

The theme this week was Polka dots, bows and pink. This is what I have created. The scalloped circle is from my
Nesties circles set and I ran it through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss dots folder. Hope you like what I have done.
Hi there this is my take on the challenge over at http://www.palspaperarts.com/challenges/. This week we had to do anything but a card so I did this canvas montarge with photos from Christmas and new Year's Day that I had taken. I decorated it with these flowers and I am never sure where they have come from but love them all the same and of course the light green pearls are from Kaisercraft. I reckon their pearls and rhinestones are the best.
And here is my canvas. Hope you like what I have done this time

Over at http://colordare.blogspot.com/. This week I used some of my Coredinations
Cardstock that matched the colors that are required for this week's challenge and used
This design that I did through a card making class that I went to last year. I am enjoying
Doing the challenges for this group that is for sure. Here is my take on the color

I used this kind of garden green card from Coredinations along with the melon cardstock
Also from Coredinations. The lemon is from an unknown source. The rhinestons are
From Kaiser craft and the stamp is an unmounted on from Grant Archival.
I had fun doing this challenge and hope to take part in the future doing more
At The Color Dare blog .Here is my card

I made this Stand up card yesterday January 14th and I really
Like this template just can't remember where it came from though.
I made it using 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock in this vanilla colour, stripped
Green Kaiser designer paper, Kaiser green rhinestones and the green
Butterfly from my Ezi Cut butterfly die set.

I went to my first card making class Monday 11th January 2010, we basically had our old Friday afternoon group
Back. We made this card using a paper lacing technique. We put the designer strip of paper through the Ezi
Cut die and embossing machine to punch out the flowers. We then used a rectangle template to cut the window
Out and from this the punched out flowers of different sizes were stuck together over the window part using
PVA glue. The flower centres were from diamantes that Liz had in the shop. It only took us an hour to make
From scratch and so we then just talked and got the next lot of classes organised for what we wanted to
And organised that we would get together at Liz's craft shop on a Friday to do our own thing. It would
Include a session of show and tell as well.

I made this Mainly Blue bookmark for a Cuttlebug swap that I am on.
I am very happy with the end result as well. I used my Ezi Cut die
Cutting and embossing machine to cut out the bookmark and then
Ran it through the Cuttlebug using my trusty Swiss dots folder.
I used this blue and gold ribbon brought from The Warehouse
And the stones are from Kaiser craft I think.

Hi all I have managed to make my first Christmas card for 2010 this week. Thank goodness for our trusty Cuttlebugs and folders
As I used the Lace Christmas Tree fold for this card and matted it onto navy blue cardstock and used some blue and gold
Ribbon that I had on hand plus some Kaiser blue rhinestons. I reckon it looks pretty good too considering.

I made this male themed fisherman card today using my new set of male clear cling stamps I brought last month.
I used my trusty "bug" and Divine Swirls folder to do the background on.

First card and blog mini make over for 2010-01-01 Well today is the 1st January 2010. Where did this last decade go to huh.
Murray and I went for a mini bush walk this afternoon up at Awa Awa Rata Reserve about 15 minutes west of methven and just up from the
Mt Hutt ski field. Had a lovely walk and we didn't get all the way up the track that I wanted to go to either. Not quite there fitness wise so
I guess this means I need to work harder at the gym from now on. I am going back tomorrow (Saturday) and will try to go most days from
Now on as well.
I made my first card for 2010 today as well. Its for an anything Goes swap that I take part in on one of my groups. Enjoy these photos of both our bush walk
And my New Year's card from today and of course HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL MY INTERNET FRIENDS
