prepare to be amazed...

Last night I went to visit a friend who had just moved into her brand new (and very beautiful) house. This was both for research purposes but more to have a chat and a glass of wine (and chocolates) in her very lovely new lounge room. Sigh, I want my new house now...

Anyway, I had a little house warming present for her but no card - So I MADE A CARD!! yay! A very simple card, lets face it but a card none the less.



The chip board tree and house are form Bella Blvd, so cute. And of course some Twinery twine, finally got to use the Maraschino reddy one- it is about my fav I think.

And today I finished a lo that was inspired by this weeks A-Z challenge at Scrapbookers Anonymous, this week bought to you by the letter 'C' (now the kids are big -I miss sesame street). And as I had a huge stack of Crate Paper (I love Crate Paper so much), I did another unusual thing for me, this lo is just about all matching lines -Neighbourhood and Emma's Shop - coincidentally as this Lo is about my very cute niece, Emma and her excitment at using her favourite cousins umbrella! I usually mix things up a lot more, I did add the little basic grey yoyo and the alphas are from BG as well and some very. very old Pink Paislee


And now that I am no longer on the DT for Southern Girls, I can enter this weeks challenge, Polka dots and Stripes. How cool is that?? They are after some more Australian and NZ entries for this week, a very cool prize awaits someone.

I really need to housework now so I guess that means I will be scrapping a lot (ok avoiding housework is what I do best...). have a good one. xx

Ps still a couple of days to go in Another Freaking Scrappy challenge site's two October challenges, not many entries yet so you would be in with a really good chance to win something very cool - head on over and check us out! x
