Those cards I said....

These cards are for Sandy and they've been a looong time coming. Sandy is also a SU Demo and I've left places where maybe she would like to stamp a sentiment. I really hope you like these Sandy.
Do you see the flourish stamp? It's from Basic Grey and because it's the clear acrylic I was able to bend it a little for variety. I was inspired by Nic Howard's Card Buffet to create these.

These two were for a mini swap. I used an "I went shopping challenge" of Lesley's at Scrapbook Outlet Forum, for my inspiration to create them. I used Nesties for them both which you can find at Scrapbook Outlets online store. I love Nestabilities!! The sheet music was cut from an oooold book I found at a market for a few dollars, the centres of the flowers are heart brads pierced thru torn and scrunched scrap bazzil and the leaves were handcut from bazzil and folded for a little 3D. So I have two more cards to share but I'm having trouble finding them in my recently re organised scrapspace.

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope you're all having a lovely day today. We've certainly got the beautiful weather to go with it - a bit windy but the washing's getting dry. Lol, yes - dirty laundry, washed, hung on the clothes line and I did it myself - on Mothers Day too, well Dd pushed the buttons on the machine ;) It wasn't so much dirty as just plain wet towels, after mopping the kitchen floor....left the taps on again!!

I had to sneak back to bed for my poached egg on vogels toast, side of avocado and freshly ground pepper. YUM. Breakfast favourites! Forever and ever when the word avocado pops into my head, or indeed my mouth I am remembered of Nic Howards cool Things That Make Me Go Grrr layout or the sign on a cardboard box at the local RSA "Free Avodacados". I'll never forget it!

I've been blog hopping this morning, visiting some of my favourites when I spied a cutie layout by Jamie Waters titled Bright Eyes...and then I started humming.....before you know it Dh, Dd and I are sitting here watching Bright Eyes on You Tube. Sniff.

I'm currently putting some cards together...abt time too I hear you say. Maybe later this eve or tomorrow sometime.

Leaving you with an old favourite...a layout of some of my favourite things.
