crafts 4 eternity

Well I'm just about to drop my daughter off at a sleepover for her friends 10th birthday, they are staying at a resort in Surfers Paradise which has waterslides and kids fun centre. Wow I wonder if they realise how lucky they are or because on the Gold Coast they are surrounded by theme parks with annual passes, a zillion shopping malls with every shop imaginable, beautiful beaches and parks and anything else you could think of, do they just think everywhere is the same. I have made this card for her friend and have followed the sketch at crafts 4 eternity I liked this sketch a lot the only problem is I ran out of staples so I couldn't add this to the recipe. THis was a fun card to make I like pink and black together.

Colour Create

I went to a craft get together yesterday for the first time this year it was very nice but one of our beautiful craft friends have moved interstate and it is not quite the same without her. Love you Alicia xx. The girls there were making Valentines cards for their husbands which I don't usually do but I joined in aswell. I also made a card eah for my daughters which are the ones pictured. I have used brown, pink and off white to enter in Colour Creates challenge The one on the right has got a little extra colour as my daughter didn't put it down all morning it has extra chocolate muffin on it. That's why I should scan before I give it away, a habit I got into over Christmas, I would create for a challenge but give the card away without posting it oh well. Hope you have had a lovely romantic valentines day. xAmanda

In the name of love

Ok, I don't know how this post is going to end up looking as I have photos all over the place. I scan my creations which doesn't give the best quality pics either because the book is so thick. Anyway enough about that. I have created these love books for the two loves of my life, my daughters. When I was creating things at Christmas everything I made they wanted one of so I wanted to make them a little something special. I was going to make them for them for Christmas but it got too busy and I put them aside and although I don't usually do Valentines Day it gave me the encouragement to get them finished for my girls. I am very happy I did as their response was just beautiful, I am very blessed to have two fabulous girls.

As I have not posted anything for so long, I thought I would enter in Cute Card Thursdays In the name of love challenge. Hope you had a romantic day.
