Recent-ish photo request

Had a request for a recent-ish photo of the kids. Caitlyn in the foreground, Toby and Ryan behind. Ryan is so tall now - Caitlyn is almost the same height! Cousin Lily is the short one facing away. Anyway, my very beautiful babies all hunting Easter eggs!

itching to start

Oh Wailey Wailey Wailey!!! I've been hovering around my front door all day and visiting my post office box every day hanging out for a variety of packages due to arrive. And NOTHING! :(
Very annoying when the old brain is buzzing with ideas and the fingers are itching to DO!

Guest Design Team gig!

You'll have to wait and find out where! ;) Though its not hard to guess with the very few sites I frequent!

New stamps and papers from Stampin' Up!

My bulk purchase of papers and stamps arrived from Stampin' Up! So I've been busy creating...
For my hubby tomorrow - we've been married 9 years. Artfully Asian blossom branch in versamark, chalks applied in colour with a soft brush, lightly sanded back. Ribbon was a scrap on my desk - linked everything with the black gel-pen line around each section.
Trying out different techniques with the stamps - this one was a mistake covered up by the dimensional flowers, but love how its worked!

Using a stain-glass window type technique, this is the Illuminated wheel in Stazon ink on vellum with Bold Brights crayons behind.
More Artfully Asian (my one indulgence for myself in my order). Chalks over Pure Pomegranate inked stamp with papers from the current In Color(tm) Stampin' Up!(r) range. Little chalking around the torn edge and some raffia behind.

blue-bottom fly

Still crazy around my place - but finally hoping it will slow down a bit. Mother's Day cards for selling at the school with envelopes made out of packing material.
