Hi, I'm Debbie and welcome to my blog. I'm a mom to two amazing kids, and wife to a wonderful Husband. I thrive on being creative - thanks to my incredible Mom. She is talented in so many areas; she taught me to sew, enjoy baking and creating from experiences. I enjoy many forms of creativity: Graphic design (my newest venture), sewing, paper crafting and even cake decorating. I am constantly evolving and thus, an avid Pinner! The world and its array of wonderful people, will forever be inspiration. I hope you find something here that will inspire you to find your inner creativity. I love to learn new things and hear about my readers. Please leave a comment if a post has inspired you or just made you smile.

Card making - Baby cards

We seem to be welcoming so many precious, new babies into this world at the moment. Our little angel in Jan, 1 in April, 2 in June and 1 in July and another friend expecting September. 

I had to make some very quick cards. Here are two I made - same theme, different colours.

The people die is from My Favourite things and the scalloped circle is my bestest Stampin Up punch. The sentiment is from stampin up. I have no idea where the paper is from though - collect it over the years and often cut to square and A6 as soon as I buy it.
The photo's are not the greatest - need to sort out a proper light studio. Perhaps when we are finally settled in the UK, my dream craft room will be a reality??
Have a great day.....

Card Making - Tucker and toad stool

It's Micaela's 2nd birthday this week and I have just received my Purple onion designs stamps that I had ordered. They arrived very quickly for SA standards - 9 days from posting in the US to my post office. Was very happy  - patience is not my virtue.
 I bought the Sunny Blooms, Toad stool and Tucker. They are Stacey Yacula's designs....

I used a large postal tag and sprayed it with 3 colours of Ranger Dylusions - Lemon Zest, Bubblegum Pink and Fresh Lime. The toad stool and Tucker snail were stamped with brilliance graphite black. I folded the tag a little so it would fit on the A5 card and used bright pink staples to secure. The sentiment is from My Favourite Things - you take the cake.

A card would not be complete without stickles and 3 diamond blings.
Thanks for stopping by....

Wash day blues ...

The weather here in Cape Town has been rather cold and wet. Getting the washing dried is always a headache, and I am often forced to use the tumble drier. Whilst browsing through some photo's this weekend (Oliver's favourite - he sits on my lap and comments on each photo), I came across these......

The blue skies and tiny pink clothes, just give me such a warm feeling. V has outgrown all the clothes already, but for a brief instant, I can remember the teeny-tiny little outfits and the first time I held her in my arms.

Sigh.....time is certainly flying. V is 7 months old already and in 8 months time we will be packing up and heading to the UK - guess I will be firm friends with my tumble drier there - LOL!

Will post some more cards - I have had a little time, so could be creative!!
Have a great day
