Story book friends card - Cats

Hey there everyone..... WOW long time no write!! Hope you are all well and have been enjoying this wonderful Autumn weather! We have been very busy as a family and I've been busy with stamping too..... (so want to show you all.... one day!)
Just recently in fact we had a loss in our family, a fluffy member, our dear Thea cat. (Find out more about the whole story HERE at my family blog)
It was all very hard for the girls and I (especially) and we ended up going to the RSPCA soon after and brought home not 1 but 2 sweet little kittens!!!!(brother and sister) OH MY oh My!! They are sooooooooo adorable, we love them dearly and continuing say how sweet, cute, fun and wonderful they are! Just Perfect for our family!
 With the loss of Thea our dear Vet was TOTALLY AMAZING and I wanted to send her a card. I also wanted to send the ladies at the RSPCA a card for the awesome way they helped us with our new fluffy family members. Here they are....
 "T t" is for Thea. This card was for our Vet

"C c" is for Chokolait and Cobweb
 this card was for Robyn and Kate at the RSPCA

To create the two kitten card I just stamped on a window sheet and then flipped it to make it look like two kittens! COOL! Then looking at it carefully I water-coloured under neath directly on the paper to achieve the cat's colours! The fun black and white DSP is from the paper stack still available in the mini - Stacked with Love....but not for long!!! Oh and those little wooden elements are also retiring so make sure you get your stock up NOW before they are gone!
Hope to show you more of my crafting creations soon, there is a lot going on in the Stampin' Up world so stay tuned!

SUO challenges #121 - Mother's Day

With Mother's Day just around the corner the fabbo ladies at SUO are running a challenge all about just that.... Mother's Day! I ran a Mother's/daughters class for a group of wonderful ladies on the weekend and this is what we made....
 This particular one is being sent off to WA for my friends Mummy, she loves Purple so I went a little crazy with the yummy Blackberry bliss! Soooo love the look of those flowers!

Then with the wallet, once you take off the belly band you see in first greeting on the inside...
 Keep opening it up and you see some room for special words from children 
or spots for some extra photo's....
 Lastly, when fully opened you have room for photo's or your own personal message!
This is such a versatile gift, great for any occasion! It's called the Photo Wallet, and I found it HERE. Everyone had a wonderful time and needless to say were all very happy and totally ready with that special gift for Mum/Nan!

Perfectly Rustics challenge #46 - New Technique

This is it, the last challenge for me with the fabbo team at Perfectly Rustics! We are wanting to stretch you a little in your creating and encourage you to try a new technique!! I've been wanting to try the very popular BOKEH technique, which may I say is super fun!! I found THIS great video and then got to work.
My card was actually made for the lovely Kim's, super man, Colin for his birthday! He is a photographer so this card fitted perfectly for him!
I hope that you play along with us this challenge, be awesome to see what fun techniques you try!
