Par-tea Time!

I love the quintessential English teapots! They're so pretty, with dainty little patterns on them, looking all lady like and proper :-) I can almost imagine a scene - a beautiful backyard with pink 'n' white roses, white patio furniture, a tray of cakes and sandwiches, pretty cups 'n' saucers and a pot of fresh tea...sigh!
Well, maybe it's time to have a tea party! How about this fitting invite and matching place card?

Look who's here...and quite early!

I felt like making a Christmas card, just like that! So I went and made one :) And then I saw that I wasn't the only one. A Spoon Full of Sugar and Stampavie are both a having a Christmas in August Challenge and I'm sending my Santa cheer their way!

Hope you've been good this year, 'cos Santa seems to be in a rush to be here early :-)

Happy crafting!

Whimsical Owls

I'm back! I know it's been quiet here for a while...let's just say my mood hasn't been very upbeat these past couple of days. At times I would wish for everything around me to evaporate, leaving me in a vaccuum and staring at nothing. Intense, huh? Well, I think I quite need these days in my meandering life. They give me a perspective, help me clear my vision ahead and learn valuable things about myself.
Alright then, enough of my philosophy and over to this project I wanted to share with you. It's interesting that I chose a card I made with Owls in it. Owls - wisdom - wise old owl...I digress.

Here's the card -

These adorable owls are from Black Leaf Designs. Aren't they the cutest? Check them out and other fab images and projects from DT members at Black Leaf Studios.

The card itself was very simple to make - 6x6 card base in kraft, some background stamping, lots of inking on the edges, the owl digis printed out on white CS and coloured and cut out, the sentiment also printed out on white CS and cut out, the tree hand cut and fed into the crimper and the flowers punched out of patterned paper - easy peasy! (on the inside it says 'Happy Birthday'. But it could be anything really)

And so now, after my much needed being-in-the-void phase, I foresee creating and posting more often. It worked, see?

Happy crafting!
