Hello everyone. Just popping in to let you know that I am still here. Life has been incredibly busy over the last few months and unfortunately I had to put my card making aside. I am hoping that in the new year, the pace will slow down and I will be able to get back into creating again.
I just wanted to share with you a card I made a little while ago, for a special little girl.
I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2013.
Good gravy! I can't believe we are in August already. This months theme over at Bizzy Bec's is
SPOTS AND STRIPES...
Bec has a gorgeous Memory Box die up for grabs for the lucky winner of this challenge. Be sure to pop on over to the challenge blog and check out all the gorgeous DT creations. While you're there, please send a warm welcome to our newest DT gal Michelle.
Welcome to this month's challenge over at Bizzy Bec's. Our theme this month was chosen by DT Tracy "FLOWER POWER".
For my card, I used an adorable magnolia stamp and paper pieced her dress and shoes to match the dp. Most of the flowers, spellbinder classic circles die and butterfly die are all available from Bec'sonline store.
Bec has a lot of gorgeous goodies in store at the moment, be sure to pop on over and check it all out.
Oh my goodness. I can't believe that it has been nearly 2 months since my last post. I have been super busy with work and have missed having my therapy time in my craft room. It was so nice to actually sit down and create again.

Are you ready for Bizzy Bec's monthly challenge? This month's challenge theme was up to me, so I decided on "VINTAGE". I didn't actually use my copics on this card and I actually really enjoyed creating this one.

Your challenge over at Hooked on Craft this fortnight is "TRY SOMETHING NEW" So I decided to try my hand at stamping on candles. A few of my friends have made these recently and I just fell in love with them. I found a fantastic tutorialhere, over at Splitcoast Stampers.

Oops. I was meant to have this post go up this morning, sorry about that. Wow I can't believe how long it has been since my last post. Where has the time gone? We had a super easy challenge this month over atBIZZY BEC'S. The theme is ANYTHING GOES.
I have used the adorable Whimsy Wee Stamp Rose and Felix. I just adore all of Sylvia's images. This stamp, doily, cheery lynn heart die and stickles are all available from BIZZY BEC'S ONLINE STORE.
Oooh, not long now till the jolly man in the red suite arrives. We are all getting excited here in our home. My sister and her family are all coming down to Canberra to celebrate with us. I can't wait. I had the most wonderful visit from my Mum and Nan last week. It was only for a few days but I loved every moment of it.
I had better get back to the challenge hadn't I. Your challenge is to create something with a christmas theme. Too easy huh.
I wanted to share with you a gift I made for my daughter Lauren. With help from my beautiful and extremely talented friend Kylie, we managed to get this finished in 2 days lol. Click on the image for a closer look. I'm absolutely over the moon with how this turned out and Lauren couldn't get the smile off her face. That makes it all worth while.
I hope you're all having a lovely day. Hugs xo Jackie
Well we are at the beginning of my favourite month of the year. I had my birthday 2 days ago and my beautiful daughter Lauren is celebrating her 15th Birthday today. Happy Birthday sweetie. Then of course it is nearly Christmas. Which leads us into Bec's Challenge, so of course it has to be "Christmas theme"
