Oops, My Bad

Kia Ora.

Well I just entered the wrong project into LOTV's monthly challenge Anything but a Card it was supposed to be this tag,

Now, off I go to enter the correct project :)

From a wet New Zealand, I'm not complaining though because the gardens really need the water and then they'll need weeding lols.

New Years Eve

Kia Ora.

It's New Years eve already here in New Zealand. Can you believe it, 2013 almost over all ready. Before I do another card challenge post I have to mention a quick challenge on The Ribbon Girl Challenge Blog. It's the Button Give Away just guess how many buttons are in the dish and leave a comment and a mention on your blog about their challenge to be in to win. I never guess correctly but it's worth a go lols.

Keep Well x

I will be back later with another card challenge =^.^=

Quick Christmas

Kia Ora,

It may be sunny here in New Zealand but I have succumbed to "man flu" the gift that keeps on giving, with thanks to my Scrubby who passed this on to me.

With that in mind this is my last Christmas card as I'm now feeling just a weeny bit on the rough side. It's a quickie card because I had everything cut out and ready a little while ago so I only had to assemble this one to post it lols.

So, here goes, I'd like to enter the following card into the Totally Gorjuss Challenge 125 Quick Christmas

Quickly then… I used LOTV stamp and sentiment copic colored and paper pieced the little gal used spellbinders dies some ribbon and bling I got from ribbon girls and the DP is from Rosies Boutique. 

Got to go now and get ready for work to spread around the gift that keeps on giving, cough cough sniff sniff, hopefully if I'm really good with the hand sanitizers and tissues I won't spread it around too much or even better I get sent home for some R&R. 

Thanks for stopping by ,

Happy Christmas one and all

And as always

Keep Well x

Adding a little sparkle to my life !

Kia Ora

Crafty Bloggy chums….. I hope the week is going well for you.

I'd like to enter this card into TGFs Farm Fresh Friday Challenge  All that sparkles …

It doesn't show very well on the photo's but I am sparkling honestly

See (very poor lighting today)

The image is from TGF Keep Cozy stamp set and the sentiment and candy canes are form TGF Merry Tags set and the DP is Peppermint Express from American Crafts. That's a spellbinders die. and some red card stock of unknown and mysterious origins ;) The snowman and candy cane have been colored using my trusty copic pens (spell check really dislikes the word copic, I don't know why, I use it often enough lols).  

That's all for today because just like you I'm busy, busy, busy at this time of year.

Thanks for stopping by and as always 

Keep Well x
