Just Magnolia

My beautiful friend gave me this gorgeous Magnolia stamp for Christmas yesterday, I love it. I have followed Mina's sketch at Just Magnolia and I'm really happy with the way this card turned out. I have now done another in pink tones but this gold one is my favourite. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas x Amanda

Mojo Monday

Well only four more sleeps until Santa comes and my house is getting very loud,excited and busy. My mum has arrived to stay for a week and a bit and the beautiful sunshine is back so it's getting hard to sit and craft, but I told myself I need to make at least one card a day and hopefully post daily so luckily everyone except me had a rest after a very busy night and morning. This is my card for Mojo Monday they have a great sketch to follow. I just received this digi from Pixie Dust Studios so I decided to make this card for nobody in particular. I also purchased some twilight digis from there but I'm still working out the best way to colour them so stay tuned. Enjoy the rest of your day, X Amanda

Inspirational Card Sketches

This is my card for ICS . Another Kenny K digi, I am having alot of fun with these. I have done this card in green tones, my eldest daughters favourite colour but have coloured another two in red and in black. I was going to try to make a circle of card look like a cd but then thought I'd have fun and stick a real cd on. It is silver but when I scanned it came out rainbow which is pretty cool I think. Hope you like my card, I'm off to make some more, xAmanda.

One for the Kids- Cute Card Thursday

One for the kids for Cute Card thursday . Another great digi image from Kenny K. I can not wait to make some more cards with their digis but I need to go and do my chores and a bit of Christmas wrapping, shopping and preparation first. My girls loved this digi and they also chose a girl with a guitar, a girl with an ipod and a movie star. Have a great day, x Amanda

Colour Create Plum and White

I have joined in at Colour Create's Challenge which is plum and white. I got this image from Kenny K digis, her name is Luscious Linda. I am going to try and colour another one of her today in reds or blues. My daughter chose this image and I thought I don't think so but when looking at the card gallery at Kenny K's she looks really good. There are so many great digis out there, people are so talented. xAmanda

Papertake Weekly

Over at Papertake Weekly you need to make a birthday card for somebody with a birthday around Christmas. My husband's birthday is three days after and we usually don't do much at all for him. I wouldn't like to have my birthday so close to Christmas that's for sure. I made this card for him but will probably make a few more before his birthday and then decide. I am new to copic markers and am loving colouring in with them, they are quite addictive so any excuse to make new cards will do. THanks for looking, Amanda xx

Stamp Something

I have made this card for my friends daughter, gorgeous little Martina. I have nearly finished all of my Christmas cards which is very late I usually have them all out and sent by now. I have entered this card in Stamp Something's Digi Challenge. I can not remember where this image was from but it is very cute, I will have to go for a search and edit this post later to tell you what it is. Well off to make dinner and probably a birthday card for my husband who is out for dinner tonight. xAmanda

Digital Tuesday Challenge

It's a Sparkly Christmas at Digital Tuesday Challenge and I needed to create a small card/gift card for my husbands secret santa present. The person he has to give to is a 30 year old female so I decided this reindeer games digi would be good. I added a little sparkle to her nose and champagne and a couple of red sparkly brads. Thanks for having a look, Amanda.

MOjo Monday Sketch and Card Patterns sketch

I only purchased this cute little guy Francis this morning from Digistamp Boutique, isn't he cute. My daughter loves penguins and her favourite colour is green so I thought I'd practise with greens on these cards before I make something special for her. I have followed Mojo Mondays sketch on this first card.

And I have used the same digi and colour combo on this second card for Card Patterns sketch. I love Stampin up's green galore and taken by teal but both have been taken out of the new catalogue, such a shame. I am making cards this morning to keep myself calm as I'm off to see Bon Jovi in Brisbane tonight and am getting very excited. x Amanda

Baby it's cold outside

At Digital Tuesday Challenge it is Baby it's cold outside, which is great because I decided to make Christmas bon bons this year and these two friendly snow men are for my nephews. I have found an easy way to make bons bons now and I am very excited as I can personalise everybodys. For the children I am putting flashing Christmas badges and Magical Elves chocolates and for the grown ups lindt balls, christmas ear rings and christmas wine glass rings. Hope you like them I have different ones to post tomorrow.

Stampin for the weekend/Papertake weekly

I made this card for Stampin for the weekend recipe challenge but as I wrote down the recipe I also drew the sketch from Kates beautiful card thinking it was a sketch to follow as well. I love the colours turquoise and purple together so I have also entered in Papertake Weekly challenge blue and green not to be seen. THanks for looking, Amanda
