Birthday Cards

Here are just two of the four birthday cards I need to make before the end of next week. I'm thinking of entering this card into Bizzy Becs Creatalicious Challenge.

The first is for my beautiful and incredibly talented friend Kylie. Happy Birthday for the 5th gorgeous. I just had to use her favourite colour combination of pink and green. I coloured the Sugar Nellie image with my Copic markers. The tiny little pink rose is from Bizzy Becs. She has an incredible array of flowers in her online store. You simply must check it out.

The second card is for Kylies adorable little girl Jorjia. I love this little girl as if she was my very own. I can't believe she is going to be turning 3. I think she needs a playmate

This is another Sugar Nellie image, coloured with my Copic markers. I used crystal effects on the apples to give a lovely gloss to them. I'm in the process of making the other two cards at the moment. One is for Kylies other daughter Miki and the other is for Kylies Mum Lyn. (Hi Lyn, wish I was coming down with Kylie next week to see you). Since knowing Kylie, October is now a very busy month for Birthdays for me too, but I wouldn't have it any other way. They are all so very special to me and my family.

Till next time, take care Jackie xo

Back Again

Wow.. It feels like I've been away for ever. I have had a lovely two weeks with my hubby. We had a lovely romantic picnic by the river (just the two of us). As you can imagine, the kids have wanted to be by his side the whole time. So it was lovely just being the two of us.

We celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary last week and went out to dinner to the
restaurant that we had our very first date at. It was so lovely. Geoff bought me the most beautiful diamond ring set . They are simply stunning. Yes, I am very spoiled.

Geoff has another 3 weeks off before he heads back to work. We are starting to get busy doing our household inventory for our posting to Canberra. It will be here before we know it. We already have a home and schools organised, so that is a huge relief.

I'ts Fathers Day here in Australia today, so a big happy Fathers Day to all. Here is the card I made for my gorgeous Pop. He loves fishing. Love ya Pop..

I coloured him with my Copic Markers and used Stampin' Up! card stock in Always Artichoke, Bordering Blue and Brocade Blue.

I also had a play with one of my new stamps from Bizzy Bec's. I fell in love with her as soon as I saw her. What do you think?

I adore all the tilda's. The paper and flower are from Bizzy Bec's and the card stock is Stampin' Up!. The heart border is a Martha Stewart border punch.

While I was absent, I received this award from the beautiful Cheryl. Thank you, yet again for thinking of me. You are such a sweet lady. (big hugs to you).

Till next time, take care xo Jackie

I have been spending all my time with Geoff since he came home. I'ts so nice to have him back. Having said that, I'm planning on getting something made this weekend and will post it shortly after. Well, that's the grand plan anyway.

I hope you are all well and thank you for all of your lovely comments and well wishes.

Till next time, take care xo Jackie
