Fox & Friends mini cards

I forgot to post these ages ago when we made these.
My son helped as the Fox & Friends set really appeals to him.

These are tiny cards but perfect for gift tags.

I often leave my cards sentiment free if they aren't being made for an immediate purpose so then i can just choose one appropriate at the time, stamp it and it's right for the occasion.

Cute aren't they?

quick accents card

Here is a very quick and simple card made using the quick accents and the Nursery Suite DS paper.
How cute is that bunny!!!
 You can also get the bunny in the stamp set So Cute but this is  just a bunny cut out of the paper.
A sweet new baby card I think!  Or even an Easter Card?
So it's not just for scrapbookers.

Nursery Suite Accents

One of the things that is easy to pass over in the catalogue is the Quick Accents. This hte the Nursery Suite one. Its' 2 12" pages of thick stickers. It's perfect to share with a friend especialy if they only have girls and  you only have boys!
Chopped up you really get an idea of how much comes in those two sheets!

Here is a closer view of what we each got.

I shall have to come back with the projects I've made with these soon.

Never Ending Card

These cards are amazing - they are actually very simple in design
- it's hard to believe how simple until you've done it really!
But they take time to decorate as there are so many parts to cover.
 I've combined my two favourite things from the big catalogue in this card.

 The Elegant Soiree DS paper and the Just Believe stamp set.
Oh, and the 2 step Owl punch is just so very cute - had to use that also.
So you just keep flipping and folding til you've seen everything but then you just want to keep on flipping it.
It's good therapy!
 I have a class on this running later this month Hope you can come to it.

Warning Petrol Fumes in this post

I can't believe today is the first day of April- the past three months have flown. Mind you we have been rather busy -parties parties parties -so I thought a recap was in order.
Today is my spunky's hubby's birthday so the partying is far from over and with holidays to look forward to the end is not in sight - which is a good thing!

3 weeks ago was Jake's 5th birthday and he had a Buzz Lightyear party - last year it was a Woody party. It's hard to believe how long one child can love the same movie characters but I guess it is played out in the movies themselves isn't it! I do wonder what he'll do with his Woody and Buzz when he is 18 - however I'm sure they won't be in as good a condition as they were in TS3!

Here is his Spaceship cake and the birthday boy dressed in his new electronic Buzz wings, gravity belt, suit  etc.

A week later we had my nephews 21st party - check how cute his cake is!
It's Dave defeating Andy Murray (our favourite tennis player)

and we celebrated my sister-in-law's 40th too.

Then last weekend it was my birthday and as our birthdays are so close we used up our frequent flyers and went to Melbourne for the day to celebrate both. We had a very early start so plenty of time to enjoy a bit of Melbourne to start with including the Haighs chocolate chop -YUM!!!

We had a great day wandering the track, we changed a F1 car tyre in a competition, saw Webber and Vettels suits from last year,

 Scotty met his childhood hero
 (being from Bathurst and a Ford fan growing up Dickky Johnson was a legend)

Unfortunately this was as close as I got to Jenson that day!

We really enjoyed some time together without interruptions!

SO often people are surprised when they find out I like motor sport. But I know I'm not the only girl around and I'm not as full on as some. In fact in my SU! team i know of at least 4 others who have all been to the F1 - lucky chicks! SO if you're a fan (which if you've made to the end of this post you're must be half way there!) then our team is very welcoming to fellow revheads!

Now I'd best be off to finish hubby's card and gift.
