Bush dance party invitations!

I've been busy preparing for my 40th birthday next week! Oh my, I'm a little in disbelief that that's actually going to be my new number.... the 30's are such a great age..... I'm hoping that the 40's are even better!
I must admit that now more and more people know that I'm turning 40 I'm "owing" it much more than if you had of asked me in Jan! That's got to be a positive right???
Well if you know anything about me then you know that I LOVE a THEME!! So for my BIG ONE I'm having a Bush Dance! Yee Haw!! I'm sooo super excited about it all, the band is booked and the invites are out, now it's just the little things to finish.
I wanted to stamp my invites but with sooo many bits of info I put my son to the task and he came up with this.....

Clever boy he is on the computer!! This was the invite that inspired and he tweaked, added and created to make me this fabbo invite! I love it!! What do you think??

Of course they needed to be wrapped up and sent out with love, so a little bit of burlap ribbon and some native bush did the job nicely!

Autumn scrapbook page - Vintage leaves

With the Autumn season well upon us I wanted to share with you a scrap book page I recently made ready for my annual calendar I make each year. This photo of our precious girls is a good few years old (see more about it HERE) but is one of my favourites!

The main set used on this page is the very Vintage Leaves! Ohhhh such an amazing set and guess what???
It's continued over to the brand new catty (released on the 1st June!)
The splashes of gold there are created by using the gold glitter brush from the mini!! Love those glitter brushes!! I've also brushed over the leaves a little too for some more sparkle effects.

Some circles of Dsp and other wooden embellishments and you have an Autumn page! YAY!!

Shine On: Birthday cards!


I can't even remember the last time I held a stamp-a-stack..... at least not this year!! So when I saw THESE gorgeous, simple cards, full of fun and great for boys & girls then I knew I had to do some serious casing and have a get together!! I'm not sure if you've heard of the #i'mbringingbirthdaysback movement started by Shannon... story of all that HERE but it sure is a super reason to make cards, and then SEND THEM to those you love!! Who doesn't love some snail mail?? (even slower now with the recent changes but it's not called snail mail for nothing... RIGHT!!??)
SO check out my spin on the lovely Susan's design
If you live in Launceston and would like to join me, Thursday night 12th May, 8pm, contact me today to get your seat!! YAY for birthdays!!

A Nice Cuppa - Mother's Day Card and gift bag


Have you made your Mother's Day card yet?? I'm pleased to say that I'm super organized and have it in the bag! Haa!! I have a card and gift bag (bag idea from HERE) and now all I need to do is make some home-made chocolates and I'm ready for Sunday!!

How wonderful is this set?!?! I love the little spoon and the swinging tea bag tag! What things will you be doing for your Mum this year?? Will you make her card with her favourite colours?? That's why I've chosen blue, My Mum's FAV!! (and so is chocolate!!)
