Friends are Flowers

Well what a weekend we have had.

Our local football team the Dockers made history yesterday and are off to their first  Grand Final next week, so very exciting for them and their fans.

I have spent a fabulous weekend with friends making another altered book which was just fantastic.  It is not finished yet as there are a few more pages to add and then I will share the finished product.  I am however very happy with what I have done so far.

Today I would like to share a tag that I made one of about 20 that I will be making for Christmas.  I have used an stamp that is currently available as a preorder from Bizzy Becs here called "Friends are Flowers" and is from Tiddly Inks.  There are also lots of others available too!

Also used is a new Memory Box die called "Christmas" that is also available to preorder in store here.

There is still plenty of time to join us in this months challenge at Bizzy Becs Challenge Blog here for our "Stitching - Faux or Real" Challenge.

Until next time happy crafting.

Fathers Day

We have a new challenge up and running at  Bizzy Becs  "Stitching - Faux or Real" and is brought to you my our DT gal Suzanne.

The prize this month is an adorable Bildmalarna Stamp - Christmas Flower and is kindly donated by Bizzy Becs online store.

Bec has recently restocked the Card Making Kits which include ones suitable for men's cards and for Christmas. As it was Fathers Day last weekend it thought it would be perfect to break open the new kit that I brought and  make a card.  You can view all the new kits here and they are fabulous, full of awesome bits and pieces for your cards. I used the Card Kit - for Men # 3.

Everything used for the card is from the kit with the exception of the kraft card stock and the stamp .  Because this months theme is stitching I used a bit of faux stitching around the outside in brown to compliment the  base.

We did a day trip to the country on Fathers Day as a surprise for dad and presented him with the card and some chocolate. It was an awesome day and fabulous end to a very full weekend.

Don't  forget to pop into the Challenge Blog here to check out the other DT gals cards and then come and play too!

Thanks for dropping in, happy crafting.
