Here is my card (finally) for the letter “K'” for my Alphabet Soup and Monday Mornings challenge.
It is also a challenge I undertook at Scrapbook Capital.
Lorrie asked who would like to participate in a Mystery Challenge – why not? So she sent through the 3 different strands of embroidery thread.
This is the card that I created. I have added straight stitching and some french knots. It was stacks of fun.
Thanks for looking.
Righto - today calls for all things "L"
Here is the list to chose from -
"L" is for love, leaves, lilac, ladybird, lions, lace, love, lavender, lines, laugh, layout
Don't forget to share your creation with me if you manage to complete one.

Well it's all happening around our place. Sean has 2 weeks off - last week and this week and we have been cracking on our pergola.
Sean's very much the handyman which is great and he made a start last week on the plans for our pergola and it has been full steam ahead since.
We are both a bit stiff and sore - feeling our age.....LOL but I gotta say it has all been worth it.
We still have a ways to go but we have a roof over it and we can now sit and have cuppas outside at least.
I think we are getting stuck into some painting tomorrow.
I must say I am missing creating in my craft room - but I am creating another great room outside that we can spend many hours relaxing and entertaining.
I will share some photos when I think to take some...........LOL.
Hope all is well in your part of the world.
I made a trip over to Mornington today to catch up with my friend Andrea. I arrived right on lunch time. Andrea had made the bestest Potato and Leek Soup and we had some nice crunchy bread to go with it, oh and a couple of nice cuppas to boot!!!!!
We caught up on all there was to catch up on as it has been TOO long since our last catch up.
We are going to try and make a deal that our visits become a little closer than what they have in the past.
I have lots to think about now to keep me going - it was just the thing I needed to lift my spirits.
Thanks for a great day Andrea!!!! Say gidday to those boys of yours.

That I am a winner again.
You may remember that I entered a “Build It Up Challenge” over at Scrapbook Capital. We had a 6 week challenge where a new element needed to be added to our creations each week as well as the previous weeks challenges.
We started with Week 1 – patterned paper, Week 2 – punches or diecuts, Week 3 – distressing, Week 4 - buttons, Week 5 – brads, Week 6 – photo corners.
So there you go – I am blown away. I am on a roll as they say.
I think I need to buy a Tatts ticket………….LOL.
Thanks to Shaz for organising the challenge and to Lorrie for my goodies – wonder what they’ll be.
I was asked a while ago to make some cards. I had to make a boy and a girl baby card and also 2 female cards. I came up with these designs.
I also had leftover patterned paper and decided to make a cupcake card. I used 2 different embossing folders as you can see in the close up shot. I just drew the top of the cupcake freehand and then whizzed it through the good old Cuttlebug – I would be lost without this thing now. I luv it!!!!!
Thanks for popping in.
|Oh and the cupcake card is also for my weekly Alphabet Soup and Monday Mornings challenge “I” is for inked edges using green ink.|

I was dishing up dinner tonight and some chips fell off the tray - I quickly pounced on the kids and told them to leave them - "they are mine" I piped in.
Anyway, dinner is served we are all sitting quietly and eating and I had this funny feeling - Tammy was looking at me with a strange look on her face "what's wrong mum?" I replied "oh nothing really"..........and went on thinking in my head that there was something wrong I was just trying to figure out what it was.
I had this rather warm feeling coming from my butt.....................then it dawned on me. I was sitting on the chips that I said were mine.
I burst out laughing once I worked out what it was - the funny feeling was when it just kept getting hotter and hotter..............I was thinking "what could it be, why is this happening?"
I got up off my seat and there they were - the 3 squished chips looking at me!!!!!
LOL!!!!!!! I was crying with laughter trying to explain to everyone what it was that I had done.................LOL.
Definately worth sharing for a laugh I reckon.
I nearly forgot these cards as well that I made for Nicole at Craft Queen
In these shots you can see my NEW natural daisies. They have now been added to my Handmade Daisies blog.
Thanks for looking.
