On that note I have started giving some consideration to my Christmas card list for this year. Each year I make all my cards so with November almost gone I thought I had better get started. Today I would like to share with you my very first Christmas card for the year.
To create my card base if have used a Spellbinder die "Labels Eight", "Scallop cirles'" and "Standard Circles Small" available here and I have used an image from Saturated Canary called Nevaeh. The exciting part is that there is a selection of stamps available currently for preorder through Bizzy Bec's and this gorgeous stamp is one of them.
Here she is:
I have also used a Memory Box die "Winterland Tree". There is a great selection of dies available from Bec here for preorder and the sentitment is also from Bec, a freebie that is on the challenge blog here together with many others.

Today I would like to share with you another card I have made following on with my "Halloween" theme. I have used another of the Blue Butterfly Digi stamps, "Candra Goth Girl" which is available from Becs store here. They are so easy to colour I just love them and hopefully you all took advantage of the little sale that Bec had over the last few days and stocked up on all your favourites.
Here is my card, I have used lots of die cuts and crystal embellishments, even managed to spray some white flowers as I wanted to use some black roses, haha think I got more on me than the flowers.
I have chosen to do something different this time and have had a go at doing a twisted easel card. Well have to so say they are so easy and lots of fun so will definitely be doing that one again. There are lots of wonderful tutorials out there to follow but quite liked this one as it is easy to follow and has great pictures.
Here is a close up

This month our challenge is:
Now being October and the challenge being things with wings got me thinking. Normally I do not do anything Halloween - being an Aussie kid it was something we didn't do. The most we ever did growing up was Guy Fawkes night which I recall being awesome fun. Dad would go any buy a few crackers and we would set them off - hehe those were the days when you could purchase them and you didn't need a special licence.
There are so many lovely Halloween cards and Treat bags around this time of the year so it got me thinking why not, I will too. So on that note I would like to share with you what I made.
I have used Angel Goth which is a Blue Butterfly Digi from Bizzy Becs Store here and Spellbinders Splendid Circles which you can also get from Bizzy Becs here. The background moon and birds stamp is one that I have had for ages and is from Cherry Pie.
The Coffin Treat Box was found on line at a site called Birds Cards. Now I searched high and low to find something to fit in with the theme to go inside, none of the shops had anything Halloween but everything Christmas. Well I found some Candy Corn yesterday, perfect! Had to have a taste too, but oooh they are sooo sweet.
So now its your turn, thinking caps on everyone and get creating. Pop over to Bizzy Becs and check out my teamies creations and then show us what you have created.
The countdown to All Hallows Eve has began.
Thanks for dropping by and Happy Creating.

I have been creating again and this time I would like to share with you a little corner bookmark I have made. There are so many wonderful tutorials out there for these just had to make one. I have used from Bizzy Becs Blue Butterfly digi range "Cody Fishing" and you can find him right here. It still fits in perfectly with this months challenge "For a Male with a tag". The Bookmark is perfect for someone who is an avid reader and doesn't like to dog ear the page.
I have also used spellbinder dies Labels 2 and Basic Banners both are also available to purchase through Becs online store here.
Also don't forget there is still plenty of time to enter this months challenge and be in the running to win the fabulous stamp from Wild Rose Studios Christmas Range "Bella with Sledge".
Thanks for looking, happy creating.

This month I decided to create a birthday tag instead of a card and have used "Teddy Cuddles" Once upon a Time collection from Bizzy Becs online stores - Blue Butterfly Digital range. If you haven't got them yet go take a look there are lots to choose from.
I also used for the greeting another digi element from Becs a freebie found on the store blog here. To go with the spots and stripes theme I added stripes to her socks and spots to her bow in her hair. The flowers came from Bizzy Becs as well as the butterfly charm. Paper and lace and from my own stash and I coloured her with copic markers.
Don't forget to drop by the challenge blog to see the rest of the teams gorgeous creations and we look forward to seeing your cards, so get those entries in.
Thanks for dropping by, happy crafting.

The challenge this month at Bizzy Becs is Flower Power and to continue on with that theme I have had a play with my Poppystamp and Memory Box dies and this is what I came up with.
The floral paper I used is from the card kit 10 which is available - here. I also used Poppystamp dies Small Madison Window, Shutter and small Flower Box all available from Bec - here together with the Memory Box Catalina Border and Essex Label - here. The Catalina border was used with several different colour card stocks and pieced onto the green patterned paper, cut into sprays and arranged into the window box. I also used it in one piece on the inside of the card in a maroon to match the card.
It was a bit fiddly cutting the flowers and piecing them onto the green card stock but well worth the effort.
For the wall background I used Tim Holtz's bricked embossing folder.
Don't forget that if there is anything you can't see in Bec's store drop her an email and if it is possible it can be ordered in for you.
There is also time to enter this month's flower challenge with two fabulous Memory Box dies up for grabs so keep those entries coming.
Thanks for dropping by, happy creating.

Wow! We have been so lucky, this week as Donna Downey came to Perth for two days of workshops hosted by Made with Memories, Rockingham. On Wednesday I was fortunate enough to do Donna's Inspiration Journal workshop. What a treat got to see her Inspiration Wednesday Journal in real life so,so nice. We got to play with lots of different media - pan pastels, golden paint mmmm my favourite, gelatos and some Indian ink all in a handmade journal. Had an absolute blast and we hope that Donna can come back again next year.
Here is a little look at a few pages from the day.
These pages we put down colour using different techniques and one of them over gesso so we could see the difference between the two pages.
Love this one too did a gel medium transfer of text onto a canvas heart and then added it to the page with a bit of colour then drizzled the page with a contrasting colour, so fun.
The journal will be a work in progress and look forward to using the many techniques shown during the class. Of course it has also highlighted that I just have to now have some Pan Pastels they are so nice to work with, oh well little steps.
Thanks so much for dropping by, hope your day is wonderful.
Until next time

This week at Dilly Beans their challenge is Winter Wonderland. For this challenge I have used the Snow Family digi together with a Christmas Ornament digi that I got from TiddlyInks. I originally made this for Dillybeans challenge when the snow family was released but didn't have anything to use for the snow. At a local craft shop last weekend we discovered this awesome paint to use as snow (True Snow) so easy to apply, love it.
I coloured the image with my copics and am happy with the overall effect of the finished card.
Thanks for looking, have a wonderful day.
