Lauren's Birthday Card

My beautiful Daughter Lauren is turning 13 on Saturday. Where has the time gone? This is the card I made for her. The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil. They have so many amazing digi's.
I coloured her with my Copic markers and the DP is from DCWV. The little frame around the greeting is made from my newly acquired spellbinder dies.

Lauren is having some of her friends come and have a sleep over for her birthday. She will be having a bonus that night as the Pacific Dunes Golf Club is having their Christmas Carols and fireworks on the same night. We are lucky enough to be living virtually next door to it. All we need do is sit under our pergola and look up. lol.. I too will be celebrating my Birthday on Thursday. Unfortunately my Hubby and eldest Daughter wont be home that night. Erin has her year 12 formal and Geoff will be on base having a farewell dinner. Having said that, we now only have about 5 weeks before we pack up for our posting to Canberra. Oh the joys of being married to someone serving in the Defence Force. Hopefully this will be our last posting.

I hope this finds you all well and I want to say a huge thank you to all the lovely ladies who leave comments. I truly appreciate each and everyone of them.

Take care xo Jackie

Swiss Pixie Digi

Just a quick post to show you a card I finished a few days ago. It's very basic isn't it. I coloured the gorgeous swiss pixie with copic markers and added dazzling diamonds to her wings and the ground. I clear embossed the always artichoke cardstock and used my "new" bigshot with the snowflake embossing folder and embossed the real red piece of cardstock. I bought the folder and my spellbinder dies from Bec's online store. She has absolutely everything you need for die cutting, embossing etc. I bought the flowers from ebay. Gotta love ebay. lol.. As I said, this card is not very impressive, but I thought I'd share it with you lovely ladies anyway.

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. Take care xo Jackie

Vintage Anya

I thought I'd change it up a bit and make a card not "christmassy". I adore the Miss Anya's from The Greeting Farm. I have had this set for quite some time and I had not actually inked this sweetie up before. I had the chocolate flowers and lacy ribbon just laying on my craft table and this card just came together from there. This never happens to me. I always have so much trouble trying to get a layout in my head. Anyway, I hope you like her.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my blog. Your comments are always so lovely. Have a wonderful week.

Linda's blog candy

Head on over to the lovely Linda's blog and enter her amazing blog candy draw. Linda is such a sweet lady and is incredibly talented.

I will be back shortly with another couple of cards I have been working on. I didn't get a chance over the weekend to get much crafting in as my beautiful sister Helen was here for a very short visit. She lives in Western Australia and we don't get to see her often enough. It was so lovely to see her again. She will be heading back over this way for Christmas, so saying goodbye to her yesterday wasn't to bad at all.

We also have another addition to our family, we adopted an month old Lavender Point Himalayan cat. His name is Indie and he is adorable. Our other two moggies are not very happy with us at the moment. Hopefully it wont take too long and they will all be best of buddies.

Take care xo Jackie

Christmas, Pixie Chicks Style!

As you know, I'm infatuated with my pixie chick images at the moment. Here is a card I recently made. To see it clearer, just click on the picture. I coloured her with copics and used some flocking on the tops of her boots and dress. Thank you Kylie for letting me use your flocking. The beautiful paper is some I recently purchased from Bec. I'm working on a couple more at the moment. I have them already coloured, but I'm having a little trouble in making them into a finished card.

I hope you're all having a great day. Take care xo Jackie

Pink Christmas

This card is so far from the traditional christmas cards don't you think, but I think sometimes a change can be good too. Yes, this is another Pixie Chick image, isn't she gorgeous. I couldn't decide which set to buy, so I just had to get both. lol.. I didn't have any pink flowers to match, so I coloured some white ones with my copics. Thanks for taking the time to visit and for leaving your wonderful comments. I really appreciate each and everyone of them.

Take care xo Jackie

Pixie Chicks

Whoo hoo...Two posts in two days. This girls on a roll... I purchased this adorable pixie chick last night and couldn't go to bed until I had coloured her and made up this card. She is sooo gorgeous, as is all the pixie chicks. I coloured her with copics and added diamonds to her wings and the little butterfly. You wouldn't believe how close I was to spilling all my diamonds on the floor last night. Eek. I think my heart skipped a beat or two. lol. I hope you like her.

Have a great weekend lovely ladies and thank you for all your gorgeous comments. xo Jackie

Christmas Fairy

First of all, I want to apologise for the quality of the photo. I'ts a miserable day here today and this is the best light possible. As soon as I saw this digi image from Digital Pencil, I knew I just couldn't live without it. lol..She is called Christmas Fairy Holly and she is just gorgeous. I have kept this card very clean and simple because I wanted to show off the lovely dp (thanks Bec). I coloured her with my copic markers and added some diamonds to the snow globe. If you click onto the photo it will come up larger on your screen to give you a clearer image.

I'll be back in the next couple of days with another couple of cards I'm working on at the moment. This will hopefully keep 2 ladies who's name I wont mention off my back. Yes, you know who you are. lol....I even had an email from one of them demanding that I had to post something sooner rather than later. Oh, it's so nice to be loved. lol..

Thank you to all the lovely ladies who have left sweet, encouraging comments. I absolutely love the thought that I have all these blogging friends from all over the world.

Till next time, take care xo Jackie
