This is for Sherry

Okay so Sherry wanted to see Kangaroos when my family went on a picnic which we do regularly. They are all around us at the local dam which is also a huge recreation area with BBQs and park areas. You can fish out there etc. You will see all manner of wildlife out there and as I said the Kangaroos are everywhere lazing in the sun hehehe, eating all the fresh grass shoots.

So there you go chick as requested. . . .Kangaroos!!!!!!

SSSC - #93

I promised that I would be back with another card and the challenge Sherry and I did this time was Karen Girons' Sweet Sunday Sketch. We had fun doing this one.

Once again I broke out the snowflake embossing folder hehehehe. The tree I cut out is from the DSP once again the collection is from last year when I was loathe to cut into my papers but now I just cut them including my favs Graphic 45 ROTFLOL.

The wrinkle ribbon was a gift from Sherry and she does such a wonderful job. She sent me a whole package of all different colours that she does herself. Pop over to her blog and check it out as she does sell it and you get a good deal too. Okay short and sweet for this one and now I have to do a post just for Sherry.
In the meantime. . . .

Technostamper #148

Well hello everyone!! I know I have been absent for a week or so but I have been so busy with working and having my grandbabies living with us for a while. I have to sneak time to come in and play in my craftroom lol and it ain't easy at time lol. Sherry and I were finally able to skype and craft the other day and we did a couple of challenges in between laughing and chatting. We both did the Technostamper challenge first as you can see by the sketch below. . . .

This is my interpretation of the above sketch. . . .

Even though I am a card maker I find it so hard to sit and make christmas cards for some unknown reason. I think it might go back to the late 80's early 90's when I made so many of them and in those days we hand coloured our images and I got so sick of it it put me off stamping for many years lol. I think that is probably why I have not got into the Copic epidemic that has hit you tube lately lol. I would love some to play with but they are very expensive so I will have to wait for those but in the meantime I am buying rubber stamps from TGF and Kraftin' Kimmie etc in readiness for when I get the Copic markers. The DSP I used on my card is from last year but I love it and the snowflake dies are Spellbinders which my friend Sherry sent me and this is the first time I have used them. . .I heart them so much hehehe. I even cracked my snowflake embossing folder for this one which has never been used. I told you I struggle with making christmas cards. Okay I will be back later with another card and then a pic just for Sherry.
In the meantime. . . .

Sasya's Sketches #35

Hello everyone. Well since I have been absent from my blog for nearly two weeks and even though I have been skyping with Sherry and making cards with her etc and I have taken pics of them, none of them got uploaded to the blog. . . .shame on me hey? But today a parcel arrived from Sherry with some awesome goodies inside, things that I was not expecting at all so I was totally surprised. She is so good to me honestly and we have so much fun when we skype. It is her birthday next week on the 7th Nov so why don't you pop over to her blog then and give her some birthday love. I decided to use one of the embossing folders that she sent me which blew me away because I was only expecting the one Timster set not four sets for goodness sake!!! See how much she spoils me. She also sent me some of her awesome wrinkle seam binding which I am so in love with. So if you want the best wrinkle ribbon out there today then pop over to her blog and buy some because she won't have it very long, it goes like hotcakes!!

Below is the sketch we were to follow. Which is very simple and clean lol so I put this card together in ten minutes.
Okay folks that is it for about five minutes until I load the next challenge card hehehe.
So until next time. . . .
Walk about your day with absolute beauty.
