A card and layout.

Hey Everyone,
I can't believe its been two weeks since I posted last! I have spent a lot of my time working on my holiday photos from our trip to Canada and America last year. You could say I'm kinda on holidays again........two of my children and my husband are in Canada at the moment visiting family. Hardly any house stuff to do!!

Today I have two DT projects to show you.....
Look at this fun inspiration photo for 'The Shabby Tea Room'
Fun Blooms

The design team were given cut files to use from
  The Cutting Cafe  .....sponsor for this challenge.
I chose this cute fish bowl......I had fun shabbying it up with lots of glitter, sequins,  some flowers and leaves that I made using 'Flower Shoppe' Cricut cartridge.


My Second project is for 'Stuck on U Sketches' Die cuts
Home Sweet Home is the challenge
One thing that I really enjoy is spending time in the garden. Its Autumn in Australia now ........these photos were taken last week just after it rained. My camellia's and gerbera are in full bloom, they look so pretty.

I made the butterflies from paper clay . Can you see  the embossed an embossing folder from Maggie Holmes. Love how it turned out!

Die cuts.... Simple Pleasures - Cricut - Country Life, the chicken wire and feather.
This is the fun sketch I followed from 'Stuck'

Oh my gosh......what a long post, I hope you made it to the bottom.
Have a great week and thank you for visiting :)
