Rest In Peace

Am quite sad this morning ;-(

heard of two deaths of artists that were part of my life growing up

Mary Tamm, the actress who played Romana in Doctor Who


Daryl Cotton, a singer very popular in Australia during the 70's

Happy Birthday John!

My friend John recently celebrated his birthday very quietly, as he was recovering from surgery on his knee.

I couldn't resist giving him this card ;-)

Happy Birthday Mum

A sadness still comes over us,
Tears in silence often flow,
Memory keeps you ever near us,
Though you died 14 years ago.

Your presence I miss,
Your memory I treasure,
Loving you always,
Forgetting you never.

Playing with a new toy ;-)

I had every intention of sewing on Friday  ............

that was before this got delivered!

New Toy KnK Zing

So I spent the rest of the afternoon setting it up and having a play!

New Toy KnK Zing

first test cut!
New Toy KnK Zing

very impressed!  This is Bazzil cardstock and was cut with one pass and the really delicate lines are only 1mm thick - my CraftROBO couldn't cut Bazzil properly and it was struggling with doing delicate stuff ;-(


now to experiment with the print and cut feature!

I'll be back!  (insert Arnie voice here)

UnstampaBelles Challenge #13 - Celebrations

Challenge #13 for UnstampaBelles is open today.

The theme this month is 'Celebrations' as it is UnstampaBelles' First Birthday ;-)
To Celebrate our first year we are giving away some blog candy! Leave us a comment (on the UnstampaBelles post); we want to know what your favourite post from the last year was.  We’d also love to know what you would like to see more of. The winner will receive ......

3 Australiana Phone Charms, Cadbury Chocolate 5 x 15g pieces, A5 Textured Paper Pack, 30 Diecut Paper Flowers, Grand Adhesion Stickers, 40 x Rhinestone Florettes.

Prize for Challenge #13 donated by Cairns Bookbinders and on Facebook

 
One handmade A5 Journal and three lengths of ribbon.

All entries are subject to the Design Teams' discretion.

Any form of paper creation will be accepted as long as NO STAMPS (Digital or Rubber) have been used (this includes sentiments).

You can find our rules here for further information.

This challenge closes Friday, 3rd August 2012 and Winners will be announced Monday, 6th August 2012 - Remember we are working on Aussie Time.
Due to graphic technology any entry with a graphic image will be subject to the Design Teams' discretion and we will contact you if we feel the entry does not meet the ethos of our challenge blog.

Now for my DT entry.

Once again in my endeavour to make less girly male cards - I used the same layout as for my Dad's birthday card, this time for a friend's upcoming birthday.  He loves his cars, so it will suit him well.

Die cut Paper Tole & sentiments and cardstock from Blue Edge Crafts.

Please visit the UnstampaBelles blog and see last month's winner.

Each month there are some amazing entries and it really is getting more difficult for the DT to pick a favourite!

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.

Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)
