Vintage Imagine

Hi there , welcome to my room . Thanks so much for calling in .
Warm wishes for a happy day for you and yours .

Very hot here today.  Fans and air con working perfectly .Had a wonderful morning of card making with Fran and Sandy while Hubby dozed in lounge chair . Jatz with  cheese and gerkin and a few sweet plain biscuits and a coffee kept the energy levels up till lunch time at the Forest Avenue deli .

Will share one of the cards made here,  now .

And for the inside .. In case you are wondering ,
the paper clip is just there to hold card open  to show inside ..

Card base of Kraft card was cut from 12x12 kraft pack from SU
Basic Black ink .Image is a clear stamp from Kaisercraft . Sentiments from MFT.
Black pearls from my stash .Bit of sponging from SU ink , Backed Brown Sugar .

                   it's just that it can't buzz any slower

Hello craft pals , welcome to my room . Thank you so much for calling in .
I do hope that you say hello .

Very hot here so staying indoors where it is a lot cooler . Have finished 3 kits for tomorrow morning so not actually card making but sharing on blog instead .

For this card I have used a pre cut SU card base from SU.
This a Sweet Moments Simply Sent card kit .
Had a few cards left over so using up in a different way to that  suggested .
Front image is from Jim Holtz coloured with copics . The sentiment is from Tasty Trucks , set , SU.

Cake from Big Day set , SU . Circle punches from SU.

Sentiment for inside is from Big Day as well .


This was a pleasant way to pass a hot afternoon .Just hope my girls enjoy making kits this way ..

Quite a mix

Hello you all . Welcome to my room .

I suppose you all thought that I had given up creating,  but not so ! Just been time poor .
I still have my wonderful friends Sandy , Fran and Jane call in weekly to see me and craft with me .
Constructing kits for them and caring for my Hubby leaves me with limited computer time though .

Here I am now to share a few cards That I have made .Thank you for calling in and I hope that you like  that which  you find here today .

                                               A Christmas card from SU  Kraft card stock along with Real Red. I used SU circle punches for the sentiment tag . The image  is from SU  set,  Christmas in the Making . The sentiment is from  SU set , Feeling of Christmas . My friends and I could not agree on whether this delightful lady was wearing a dress and pinny / apron or just a dress .I think she has on a crisp , pretty white apron . And using foam dots to adhere her to the  card seemed the way to go .

A child's Birthday card is next with fun  images and a super sentiment from a freebie on a magazine ...what a find !!Green card base and white layer from my SU stash

Some child  will love this hopefully ..

Loved the paper combination of dots and gingham for this one on a white card base .
The party girl is from SU set , In this Together .  Sorry , I have forgotten where the " it's a party' and the streamers came from . Punched out some tiny flowers with a retired SU punch .


Summer seems to be giving us ,  here in Adelaide , a preview of what is to come , pushing Spring to one side . We have a week or so of very hot weather on the way so I may have a little free time in my  room  while hubby rests under a fan .

This is so me!!

Hope that you have enjoyed your visit as much as I have blogging .

Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.
