Happy Go Lucky

 I finally, after months and months, got around to entering a challenge again.  Woohoo.  This was for Artfull Crafts- using RUBY ROCK-IT.  I simply love this range.  Stoked with how the LO came together.  A bit of Crate and Prima added in there.  The gorgeous pic was taken by our great friend and photographer Steve

Well as my good friend Lyn H says "make friends with disappointment".  I did not win.   ROFL.

LOVING the Tim Holtz edge distresser- thanks for the inspiration Vicki!.  Good for roughing up edges nicely.

Beautiful Butterflies

 Trina Mcclune, thank you for posting this card tutorial!  You can find it here

So I didn't have the same Spellbinders die, so made do- love the effect though and the concept of not die cutting the top to retain the card crease is a goody!  The card was a perfect excuse to move the Jenni Bowlin butterfly from my Silhouette wishlist to my cart.  Stunning.

The title is on acetate (love this!) and simply stapled to either side.

Thanks again Trina!

A lesson in hydrolics

One of the benefits of not having a manicured (landscaped!) section has been the creative dirt and water play for the boys.  So on this particular day I said to hubby (AKA the engineer) something like "Are you happy with them using all that water?".  The engineer's response... yeah they're fine "IT'S A LESSON IN HYDROLICS"....LOL

And a gift sack for one of my son's wee friends.  Fun doing girly girl for a change.  Inside was lip gloss, fairy stickers and a pretty little bracelet.  How girly is that!

Hope your week's going well.  We've passed 'hump Wednesday'.  2 days till the weekend.  Blessings.  Sal. :)

Prima Trina

 First up is the LO we did at Trina McClune's class, here in Nelson.  Guess what?  I loved it!  I altered it slightly- less flowers and left out the blingy bit.  New for me- die cutting a photo and Prima Resist canvas.

This is what I created with the kit leftovers, along with some bling from my stash.  I haven't used Prima much cos I thought it was too girly.  Well I'm converted!  Thanks Trina :)

Hoping for a better, healthier week this week for my whanau.  Blessings.  Sally.
