Harvest Time

Well the month of October is nearly gone, my how fast did it go.  I nearly forgot to post my card for From The Heart Stamps ~ October Stamp of the Month - Harvest Medley.  Such a lovely image to be given, if you want to know how to get it for free just drop on over to From The Heart Stamps Blog to see what you need to do.

~ My Card ~

I made a CAS style card using "Harvest Medley" a great image to have a lovely sentiment added to it.  I used designer papers from Basic Grey, SU cardstock, ribbon & pastel chalks for background as well as some rhinestones.  "Harvest Medley" was coloured in with copics which I'm sorry to say I forgot to take a pic of what was used

Robyn's Fetish Challenge #183 ~ Halloween

We  have another great challenge this week at Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog, with the theme being "Halloween". We are proudly sponsored by Whoopsi Daisy, and kindly donated some lovely images to work with, I used "Sleeping Ballerina " from Sheet 121.

Sponsor ~ Whoopsi Daisy
Prize ~  3 sheets of the winner's choice

I really had to use my imagination for this image but this poor sleepy ballerina is all worn out from all the trick and treating, she just  had to find somewhere to sleep.  So I used DP's from Bearly-Mine Designs, ribbon and glitter for added touches as well as colouring in the image and putting her behind some die cut pumpkins.  I loved how this CAS style card finished up.

I was so stoked to see we could pick our own image and I wanted something different and  Dilly Beans certainly have that, love their designs.  I also went out of my comfort zone and decided I would create a tag, oh my I thought this would be quicker than a card, not really alot more fiddily bits.  I started searching for my tag die, low and behold didn't have one, so onto Google and found a template and printed out my own. I used cardstock from SU, designer paper from Papermania called Summer Bloom (love these papers), also distressed the edges.  I coloured in "Crinkles Heart Framed" with my copics and then used my SU butterfly punches, ribbon pearls, diamonte.  I was over the moon how well it turned out.

Thinking of You Today In Heaven ...

It would have been your birthday today and I so miss you.  With my birthday being also this month on 27th, I remember we would go to the Beaudesert RSL have a few drinks, dinner, listen to the band that was playing, then we would go back to Mum and your place and play pool, listen to country music, get drunk have lots of laughs.  You where more my father than my own and I still love and miss you.  I know you are always watching over us and I can't believe it has been over 18 years since you past, love you xx......

Happy 68th Birthday Ronnie
The Best Stepfather Ever
May you RIP xx
