New stamps :D

Hi all,

Well I finally have gotten my inky hands on some Greeting Farm stamps. Oh boy all I can say is WOW!!!! These stamps are fantastic! I am so going to be getting me some more of these fantastic creations. I have gotten three sets of these & my dear friend Helen has gotten some as well. My LSS even rang me as soon as they came in so I was one of the very first to get my hands on them, gotta love that :D. I have some more cards here on my flickr stream.

I am finally putting my limited supply of Copics to good use. I am having a blast putting these cards together. I used a few of the challenge sketches from some of my favourite blogs as a starting point. I am going to give these cards to my LSS for them to display if they want. So with that in mind I brought a few of the newest pattern papers they have in stock. On the Amellia cards I have used Basic Grey (love that company!) Koshi range & for the Oliver cards I am using the Transportation Range by Best Creation Inc. Which is sooo cute especially for little boys.

On non crafty stuff - Lilly & Em are doing really well. I can't believe that Lilly is now five weeks (& one day) old already! Where does the time fly? Em is relishing her roll as a big sister & tries to be as helpful as a four year old can be. Doug has started back at work this week & things seem to be running smoothly.

Helen came over for a visit today & we had a wonderful time together disscussing this, that & everything in between. We shared some wonderful home cooking & reciepes. Em was so happy to see Helen that she got over excited & played up (a lot). Even after Helen went home she was naughty & ended up crying herself to sleep, poor thing. Lilly went out in sympathy & was very unsettled as well. So our house was rather noisy for a while tonight. They joys of kids :D, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

Well Doug has just pulled up in the drive (it's his early night) so will go now. Have a great weekend & happy crafting every one xoxoxoxo TTFN

A LO of Em & Lilly

Hi all,

I know it's been a while since I last blogged :(. I have been busy trying to keep up with the every day stuff of having a new baby & juggling Lilly around all the things that I do with Em. I have been lucky that my dh has taken a month off to help me. Unfortunately that is fast comming to an end, as Doug starts work on Wednesday night. In a way I am looking forward to things getting back to "normal", men have a way of getting under foot don't they ;D.

I thought I would post a small LO I have just done this afternoon. It's a 6"x6" LO that I put into a bound Scrapbook that I made ages ago. As you can see I used one of my most favourite photos' for this LO. I just love the way Em is holding Lilly & is so happy about that.

I used another LO as my template. I have done a larger version of this page with another photo of Lilly & was using up some of the left overs for this page. I am really starting to enjoy scrapping again, plus I have managed to include some stamping & copic colouring on this LO as well.

I thought I would share a photo of Missy Em (with her sheep), Lilly & the very lovely Dawn :D.

Dawn & her dh had a holiday here on the Sunshine Coast a few weeks ago & was nice enough to visit us. Em was so excited (me too!) to meet Dawn. Em especially loves her sheep that Dawn gave to her. So much so that the sheep had to go to pre-prep the very next day so Em could show it off. I was lucky enough to get some chocolates (I still have one or two left ;D) & Lilly got some bibs, which fit her perfectly.

Materials used in LO:
Hawthorn & Bramble stamps,
Copic Ciaos - YR23, YG67, E50, BV02, BV04, BV08
Snugglebug papers by Little Yellow Bycycle
Snugglebug stickers by Little Yellow Bycycle
Prima flower
Assorted ribbons

Have a great week ahead every one & happy crafting TTFN
