Sweet Moments @ Arci-scraps


This is the Archi-scraps November challenge & the theme is TRANSPORT.

So I used a photo from 1974, of me being one of the Jacaranda Princesses in Grafton.

The Jacaranda Festival is a long running festival, celebrating all the beautiful Jacaranda trees blossoming.

Here is my dad driving me & my little attendants along with the float procession.
Dad loved this Ford Falcon!

I have layered & found all sorts of matching ephemera....& loved working on this page.

Great challenge!

Figgy Pudding @ JIngle Belles

Playing along with Jingle Belles inspiration this fortnight.

And it is another goodie!

Take a look...

Bring Us Some Figgy Pudding

This fortnight we're making cards that celebrate holiday foods & drinks: Gingerbread and candy canes... Christmas cookies and cocoa... Sugar plums and figgy pudding... maybe even Who-hash and Roast Beast for you Dr. Seuss fans? Whatever your favorites, we can't wait to see them! Meanwhile, here's what we made this week:
So here is my card...inspired by fruit 

I have used some older Simple Stories Paper & embellishments, on a lovely cream card.

Then topped by another Simple Stories clear overlay.

Very happy with this Christmas card making....its so fun.

Thank you for the inspiration.

Merry Christmas @ Freshly Made Sketches

Another wonderful sketch from

Very versatile, & very pretty I think! 

So I am in a 'Christmas card making mode' & turning the sketch on the side...I loved making this one.

I have used a creamy card as my has a gentle sheen to it & some machine stitching.

 I have added a delightful vellum washi tape with silver threads & then some lovely light muslin.

I then added a beautiful die cut sent to me by my dear friend Karen from Canada.  I love the sparklies on the flower, & feel it sets it off well.

Thank you for a great challenge once again.

Merry Christmas @ Feeling Sketchy

Playing across at my old favourite challenge blog Feeling Sketchy with this great sketch.

I really love this one & I believe I will make more cards with this design. 

And here is my card.....

I have used a Crate Paper 6 x 6 paper pad from 2010, but these papers I like & its good to start on the Christmas cards.

Plus some BG paper embellies & a Christmas Pointsettia

Great challenge - thank you.
