Lime Tart - September Gallery

Just popping in here to quickly let you know Lime Tart's September gallery is up and ready for viewing. Lots of gorgeous inspiration, so grab a cuppa and have a look here.

I got to play with the A La Tarte and here are some of my creations.

I stamped the dragonfly in a neutral colour.

Created a gift set with some matching envelopes.

You can't really see in the pics but I stamped in two shades of ink - Rusty Hinge and Mustard Seed.

And the finishing touch to the set :)

Short and sweet tonight, got heaps to do. Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments.

I have been having a play with my Copics and have quite a few images ready to find homes on a card or maybe even a little box or something. Just need a few more hours in my days ;)

This little cutie is 'Kisses' and is my Marker Monday post at Lime Tart, so for more details go and have a peek here.

Papers are MME The Sweetest Thing - Honey, Wild Orchid flowers and the rest is from my stash.

And another close up.

Tea and Biscuits - Anyone?

This month Whiff of Joy's summer stamp kit with the theme "Jane Austen meets Charles Dickens" will be available from tomorrow in Digi. They are gorgeous and I have been playing with a few, can't wait to play with the rest!

This is Vintage Lady Mouse Drinking Tea, I decided to create a little box filled with some yummy biscuits. This is a lovely idea to give to someone for their birthday especially when you are joining them for some tea and cake!

I have used lots of Whiff of Joy goodies here, the stamp, the Sweet Hearts tag and Leaves die, twine and did you see the little cupcake charm? Love their new charms!

I have a little tutorial at Whiff of Joy's World of Ideas Blog, if you wanting to know how I made this box.

Pop the biscuits into some tissue paper, wrap a some ribbon or lace around it and pop it into the box!

Had to show you the yummy biscuits ;)

My lovely team mates have some previews for you today to, so pop on over to their blogs.........

Don't forget our blog hop tomorrow with some prizes to!!!

Thank you for stopping by and have an awesome weekend.

Nature's Beauty

I love my kit from Lime Tart this month, the A La Tarte has a gorgeous set of stamps and I love the combination of colours!

This kit inspired me to scrap something from our everyday lives, its not often we scrap the simple things. But recording little details will be a treasure in years to come. I love sunsets and where I live, they are amazing with such gorgeous rich colour.

Had some fun with my templates!

Added some gorgeous washi - Sunburst Orange to the layers.

The kit includes these cute mini tickets and this butterfly is just one of the stamps included.

Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments.

Whimsical Garden

I have been playing with the gorgeous September A La Tarte form Lime Tart and have a little step by step I shared last weekend.

The stamps included in the kit are beautiful, so I had to stamp a little scene! So with a bit of masking and a bit of thought, I made this card.

I kept embellishments simple, so the focus would be on my little garden.

Pop over here for more details and some info on masking.

Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments.

All White

Wow, its been a busy two weeks and I am so behind with everything but its been a great time to. Our netball season has come to an end and both Courtney and I made it to the Grand Finals. The finals were on this past weekend and we both won our games!!! My girl played so hard - a very proud mummy here :)

With netball season finished, I should have some more crafting time once I have caught up on the housework....LOL. So I thought I would quickly pop on and share the latest challenge at Whiff of Joy Challenges #36 - All White.

I used the gorgeous image Bride Henrietta, she is from the Spring kit but they are all now available as digis!!

A close up.

Short and sweet today, hope you have a fabulous week!
