Fussy and Fancy or Clean And Simple at Tilda's Town....

Hi there everyone!!

Well this week we decided that our theme was so great, at Tilda's Town Challenges, we would carry it on for another week!!! LOL  

For my card I've used Australian Tilda with Ugg Boots.... she is just toooooooo cute!!!! and of course I've gone Fussy and Fancy - because clean and simple doesn't really "do" it for me!!! hahahah 

I coloured my Tilda ages ago it seems now - while I was in Melbourne at my fellow crafty buddy Debbie P. Place!!!  We had so much fun that weekend - anyway here is my Tilda I hope you love her as much as me!!!!

So what do you think - Fussy and Fancy enough??? LOL anyway we of course can't wait to see what you all come up with - I know it will be gorgeous and full of inspiration for me!!!

Kookaburra sits in the old Gum Tree at Paper Play this week!

Kookaburra Sits in the Old Gum Tree
Merry Merry, King of the bush is he...
Laugh, Kookaburra Laugh
How Gay your life must be!!

Can you guess which Australian Magnolia I have used??? You'll never guess... LOL

This week at Paper Play the theme is Flowers and Lace, now how simple is this challenge - every thing I make has lace and flowers of some sort on it!!

So In case you haven't guessed - I've used Tilda with her Kookaburra for my card this week!! I actually coloured her ages ago - at Debbie's - the colouring is not so HOT as this was the first image after about 2 weeks of not colouring... and I must say if I don't keep colouring my little bit of ability disappears pretty darn quick!! But she ended up looking cute - so here she is, hope you love her as much as me!!

So what did you think of my Aussie Song???  I remember singing this all the time when I was little - especially on the farm where we had lots and lots of Kookie's.... but then they all disappeared (I don't think it was my singing) anyway many years later another pair came and soon we had more and more - I love Kookaburra's they are definitely my favourite and I'm so glad to say that we had them at our new house too - with all the bush just out the back door I'm sure there is a few of my other favourites - like Galah's.... and Cockatoo's!! 

Anyway I hope you can come along and play with us this week, I'm sure there will be LOTS and LOTS of entries - which means HEAPS of inspiration for Me!!!

I'm moving house!!!

Hi there everyone...

Well its finally happening after - what 2 years? planning building and now finally moving in:-)  As much as I can't wait to get there - I'm also SOOOOOOO over moving... packing and unpacking.... YUCK

Anyway I just wanted you all to know why I have disappeared for a while... I'm extra busy moving house, and I will also be without Internet connection for about a fortnight - hopefully not that long - but who knows, after the past 3 weeks of trying to get just a phone number?? OMG talk about hopeless.... but today I've managed to GET a phone number finally (not that it works just yet) and wireless Internet - which of course I have to wait for the bits and stuff to arrive before I can switch it on!! grrrrr so annoying.... 

so I will be taking a break for a wee bit, until I get myself all organised again in my NEW craft room - can't wait to have a play in there -  and also until I get my Internet connected again.

So see you all soonish, in mean time happy stamping!!!
