I just had to share....

Having moved to Tasmania in February this year I am now thoroughly enjoying spring here on our 5 acre property.  We have a resident Kookaburra who is always flying around and perching himself on the posts or roofs and although I have tried to photograph him in the past I haven't had a lot of success....until today!  Upon walking into my lounge room earlier today I happened to notice Mr Kookaburra sitting on the fence post outside the window so was quick to grab my camera and take a few shots.  As I type this he is still sitting there....very unusual for him....thanks for taking a peek.

I'm also loving all the plants in bloom especially the cherry blossom trees we have scattered around...


20...Happy Birthday!

Well I have finally managed to make a card in time to play along with the team over at CAS(E) this Sketch! and the sketch for this week CTS#91.  Inspired by Simone's card I have made this card for my one and only child, who is no longer a child but a young man who will be turning 20 this Friday.  Wow...where do the years go?  I used his favourite colours so I do hope he likes it (it does have the stamp of approval from my husband).  Thanks for taking a peek.

Christmas Gifts

Hi.  I am back again today posting yet another Christmas card.  I am playing along again this week with the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge.  This week's challenge #124 by Deanne is asking for a gift/present to be somewhere on our card.  This is another stamp I found in my Christmas stash which I'm pretty sure I've rarely used before.  I went with these colours as I really like this designer paper I found in my collection.....much to my husband's dismay...the only colours that are Christmas for him are red, green and gold!  Oh well, it is something different and another card I won't be having to make on Christmas Eve!  Thanks for taking a peek.


I'm back today posting my card for the August challenge for RobVikVik, (a challenge between myself, my sister in law and friend Vikki W and our stamping friend Robyn).  For August Robyn chose this lovely colour scheme and I chose the layout which is from the Freshly Made Sketches archives.  Although I love these colours I found them harder to use than I first thought I would.  So, after much rehashing this is my final card and I am quite happy with it after all.  Thanks for taking a peek.
