With Sympathy # 2

Ok, not sure if this rooster could classify as a sympathy card, but I thought I would give it a try!
I used the cracked glass technique on this rooster (I thought I would hate it, but I keep using it! Damn!) and have had it sitting around for a couple of weeks not sure what to do with it...I know what you are all thinking - she's made another rooster card, and check out the colours - Chocolate Chip and Summer Sun - AGAIN! I can't move on from these colours with this stamp! I am hooked!
And here is the card... what do you all think? Could this pass for a sympathy card?
On a non-stamping note, I am sporting all kind of injuries at present - I have a huge bruise on my shin (not sure where from), a slightly bruised eye (football injury from a 3yr old's foot collecting my face) and sore ribs (somehow playing with balloons turned into wrestling and a jump on my ribs...). I tell you, I cant wait for this kid to go back to school! hahaha

With Sympathy

I was asked to make a couple of sympathy cards for a friend, and this is one I made so far. I was rushed in the end and kind of smudged the greeting, so wasnt very happy about that, so will have to make sure the other cards I made are better

A Special Thankyou

I have so many cards to make that I actually have a list of names of everyone who I need to make a card for, so I dont forget!
I know this one is a retired stamp, but I love it so much, and I had to make a thank you card for a relative who has been a great help to me recently, and wanted to use an extra special image for her. Again, I have used a flower, ribbon and button which are not SU products, but matched well for me.

For my nana & Pa

This isn't strictly SU products on this card, but I wanted to show you anyway.
I made this card as a hello card for my Nana and Pa in Hervey Bay. Since we have moved, I have missed them so much, so wanted to send a card to say hi! I have used Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip & Summer Sun, with Baroque Motifs and Upsy Daisy stamps. The flower and button are from Lincraft.

Sorry I'm late...

ha, by about a week! lol
I was on a roll with posting, then I slack off again! Terrible!
Today was the first time I have been able to sit down at my stamping table and make something, and although I have a million cards to make, I just havent had any luck with time or energy! But today I just decided to pull my finger out and get to it!
I made these cards to thank some of my dear friends who helped me out over the last couple of months, and just wanted to show them how much I appreciate them in my life. And of course, everytime the camera comes out, the poser AKA Will comes over for a photo too. Don't be fooled, I had to pose for 4 'silly' photos before we managed this nice one! hahaha
Enjoy the rest of your day!

Grandma's Birthday

Hopefully the last birthday card for a while... this one is for Grant's Grandma who also had her birthday the other week. I used some DSP, and watercoloured the rose from Fifth Avenue Floral using Regal Rose and Rose Red. Also on there is Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss.

Maddie's Birthday Card

As promised, I am back today with another birthday card, this time for Sophie's little sister, Maddie, who celebrated her birthday earlier in the month.
Another simple card here, using Riding Hood Red, Bashful Blue, So Saffron & Pumpkin Pie as the main colours, with the Big Bold Birthday stamp set.

Sophie's Birthday Card

Hi all,
I have a few birthday cards to post over the next few days, so you will have to excuse the generic theme over the next few days!
Today I will start with Sophie's card. Sophie is Grant's lovely cousin who turns 18 and is having her birthday party this weekend. We are going along, to her place in the middle of the bush and will most probably freeze our little behinds off, but for Soph, it will all be worth it. As my husband says - a little more alcohol will warm your heart...!The card is very self-explanitory, so I wont bother. Nice and simple.

Upsy Daisy Summer Sun

Back, with another summer sun card, using the Good Morning Sunshine DSP again. This one isnt totally Stampin' Up!, but I know you will understand! This card was CASEd from Dawn Easton but again slightly modified.You probably cant see very well, but there is glitter on the stamped flowers, and a brown brad in the centre of the paper flowers.

Have a great day!

Summer Rooster

Howdy ho everyone! Back with another card ( I know, how impressive has my regular blogging been lately!?!?!? ) and this time, I used the Rustic Rooster with Summer Sun! I must say, I quite like how it turned out, and so did Hubby, which was a bonus!
So on to the card, I used Good Morning Sunchine DSP with wide chocolate chip ribbon, and a latte button. I saw a similar design from Lauren Meader in the US on her blog, and altered it slightly and changed colours, stamps, papers, etc.

So what do you think? Am I officially forgiven for being a bad blogger????
