Today I’m sharing a cheeky card that I’ve made for a friend’s birthday.

It is also part of the Rubber Dance inspiration for the current challenge.

For this challenge you can use the colour combo above, or alter something any way that you like.

I’ve used the colour combo for my card.

This challenge at Rubber Dance goes for the whole of April. I hope that you can pop on over and take a look at some amazing inspiration from the team.

It’s fun to join in on the challenges and there is an awesome 12 Euro prize up for grabs at the end of the month.


Happy Stamping,

Hi, I hope everyone is keeping well where-ever you are in the world!

At the moment I’m ‘Farm-Sitting’ a friend’s farm with sheep, dogs and birds to look after. The sad part is that I’ve lost 2 sheep to crows. Hopefully I wont lose any more. It is so beautiful in this area though and I’m starting to feel quite relaxed. The weather has been absolutely fantastic, I’m even starting to get a tan.

Today I’ld like to show you some cards that I made for a magazine here in Australia called

Australian Simply Cards.

It’s always fun to put together some cards for this magazine and this time I was asked to use Rubber Dance Stamps.







Can you tell that I’ve had fun with this one?

Thanks for taking the time to stop by …

Happy Stamping!

Animals at FSC

It is time for a new challenge at FSC, gosh the months all of a sudden seem to be flying by so quickly.

This month our challenge is all about ANIMALS, a theme picked by Carola.

For my inspiration I’ve gone for a slow moving tortoise. At the moment I’m ‘farm-sitting’ in one of the most beautiful and relaxing parts of Australia – Halls Gap. Surrounded by the most glorious views and beautiful weather. After  only a few days I went into slow mode – so for this challenge I chose a slow moving animal.

This gorgeous tortoise is called Vacation from Carabelle Studio and sums up how I am feeling at the moment perfectly. The leaves are from the Four Seasons and Twiggy Leaves stamp sets from Rubber Dance. The background is Distress Oxides and the turtle has been coloured with water colour pencils.

It was interesting when I was packing to come here – all my clothes and personal stuff fitted on the front seat of my car easily … and my craft stuff just fitted into the rest of the car. Does anyone else travel this way?

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different takes on this theme. Please pop on over and check out their awesome creativity, be inspired and maybe join in the fun.

Ink Art Designs is our sponsor this month and has a gorgeous stamp set to give away to one lucky winner chosen by random org.

We also have a top 3 chosen by the design team and Saturday Spotlights where we showcase inspirational makes. And the icing on the cake is that each month we will be having a guest designer chosen from the entries.

I would like to enter this into the Craft Stamper Take It, Make It Challenge (April) – Anything Goes

Happy Stamping!

CAS Card

Good morning everyone,
I’ve a cute CAS card to show today that I made for Rubber Dance.
It uses the Textured Spring and Textured Flowers stamp sets.

CAS cards are always a challenge for me, but those that know me know that I like a good challenge!
So I will keep plugging away at it.  I really enjoyed this one because I used water-colour pencils and just played with them. It’s amazing how quick time flies when you are colouring in. It was very relaxing.
To try different styles is a really good way to help you know what it is that you love to do too.

Please pop over to the Rubber Dance blog and check how heaps of amazing inspiration that the girls have shared.

Our challenge for the month you can choose from a colour combo, or to alter something.  So for the mixed media lovers there is something for you too.


I would like to enter this into the CAS-ual Fridays challenge – #196 Spring Fever

Thank you for stopping by my blog.

Happy Stamping!
