Card and a Half - Sketch Challenge #1

My card!

The sketch!

One of my lovely scrapbooking friends has started her own cardmaking challenge blog called "Card and a Half" and here is my entry for her Sketch Challenge #1. Good one Helen!! I glimmermisted a Twiddleybitz butterfly with the most gorgeous aqua shimmer but it hasn't quite shown up in the photo and the background PP is flocked - very nice!!!
Thanks for stopping by. It always makes my day!

Using a Zipper on a LO

I went into my local OP shop last week looking for zippers and buttons and came home with a bag full of various zippers, bits and pieces for $3, so I decided to use one on a LO! I'm also going to create flowers with the others as they are a bit longer. Stay tuned for these LOs to come!
Thanks for stopping by. This LO was created for the ScrapBoutique monthly Stylist challenge for May where you had to scrap a LO using the colour scheme of brown, orange, cream and green, featuring my gorgeous nephew Hayden.

NEW! 'Birdsong' Kit from Tattered Inspirations

This month I was inspired to do something different with the monthly kit from Tattered Inspirations and decided to alter a clipboard as I was in need of one. This 'Birdsong kit' is so elegant and I just loved the colour combination and at AU$8 - very affordable!
I glued some vintage seam binding to the back of the cameo and tied it to the spring to act as a holder for the pen. It works really well. I hope you like it!
