LPoCF #202 Alex Syberia Strawberry Cupcake

 Hello again,

Well, we are enjoying (I am not enjoying the heat at all) an early Autumn heat wave and today we are expecting 34C (93F), I am sure my poor little budgies are getting confused, they are currently moulting and we hope they are growing their winter feathers and not summer ones... during the week I finally caught the NSW Water Dragon up the side of the house almost two stories up, current length 6.5 Brick courses...

Today brings us to another all-new challenge with my teammates over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends, and this fortnight we are being sponsored by Alex Syberia Design who kindly gave each of us a choice of her digital stamps to work with. I have used Strawberry Cupcake to make a birthday card.

#200 LPoCF Mirtillamente

 Hello all,

Summer has finally decided to arrive in my part of Australia for the first time in four years we went above 32C, not something I truly like, at least the storm last night has cooled us down for the day... We bought a new printer, one that has individual inks you add to the device no cartridges, unfortunately the inks ran when using printed images for crafting with liquid glitters including wink of stella pen :( I will have to look into if/how to seal the ink. 

This fortnight brings us to Challenge #200 with my team mates over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends, this week our sponsor is Mirtillamente who kindly gave the team three images to choose from. The prize will be two digital images of choice.

Prize 2 images

I have used the image called Santa Ops Color to make a rather fast and flat Christmas card, I think the layered Die cut took the longest to dry. 

Here is my card:-

What I used:-

Sparkle gold paper
Checked paper from a magazine

Have a wonderful week...

LPoCF#198 Conie Fong

 Hello all,

Wishing you all a very Happy, safe, healthy and Crafty New Year, I want to join in a few more challenges this year, it will of course depend on how I am feeling and if the physiotherapist will allow me to do more craft... 

Another New Year, I hope you have all enjoyed the celebrations of the start of a New Year, some locals let off illegal fireworks, there were no local fireworks, as a child I remember being taken to the local railway station with Dad and his binoculars to see the fireworks in Sydney, nearly 100km away, being in the mountains we can on a clear day see Sydney's skyline...

Today brings us to an all-new challenge with my team mates over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends, this fortnight we are sponsored by Conie Fong who kindly gave the design team three images to work with, I have used Conie Fong Peonies in a Jar to make a start on birthday cards for the coming year.
