Hey all! I hope you all had as fabulous a weekend as I had! As some of you know Kellie came to stay with me for our monthly craft weekend hahah. We had so much fun and actually got so much done, we decided this is our most prodctive one ever!! The first night we stayed up creating until 5am, then lastnight Kellie was creating and I started to get tired so at 3am I went and sat on the bed and watched tv but then the bright lights were hurting my eyes as kellie was still creating so I put my eye pillow on heheh and guess what I fell asleep sitting up and snoring {aparently} LOL Kellie even took a pic heheh I made her delete it so dont ask to see it LMAO. So anyway I completed 5 cards this weekend! I made a card for Farm Fresh Friday, club anya & friends, sketchy saturday & wildcard wednesday plus I made a card for this fortnights Magnolia down under challenge and anya ink! Phew all done.

This is FFF picture this challenge

This is CA&F wild card Wednesday colour combo

This card was my 2nd entry for the colour combo and its also my entry for Anya ink their challenge is flowers!Ddid you notice my sprouts hair is a different colour to what I normally do!
This is CA&F sketchy saturday Sketch 2
I am LOVING these papers from Bizzy Becs!
And last but not least is my card for this fortnights MDU Challenge Valentines Day.I wanted to show everyone who enters that u can use other stamps as long as you have at least 1 Magnolia stamp on the card too. My magnolia stamp is the fence! Wow that was a long post! So are you loving my doilies? Kellie is the sweetest she brought me 3pks of doilies from the stamp spot and I just cant stop using them!! The pink ribbon is from a fellow blogging friend Stephanne, I received a parcel full of ribbon, punched out leaves and YUMMY choc mint cocoa!! Anyway I hope you like all my cards I created this weekend! I think I need to head out to the local craft shop and stock up on ribon and pearls YUMMY! All my stamps are from The greeting Farm. {As you know I am opening an online store and will be stocking these gorgeous stamps Im sooo in love with} Whatever I dont have The greeting farm will. Ok I think I need an afternoon sleep now!



wow you have made so many beautiful cards. It sounds like you have had a great weekend, oh i would have loved seeing that pic of you sitting up asleep, you must have been buggered.


Wowzers! Love them all. It was so clever combining magnolia and greeting farm stamps on one card, my two faves in one place! She just looks so great against that fence. I love the doilies, and they fit perfectly with the sketch.


Hey Kristy

Holy cow you were a busy girl! It would take me a week to get that many cards done! lol
Awesome job!


Tracey Feeger

All fabulous Kristy. Love the Anya Ink one especially but they are all great. The MDUC is a great idea. Well done on all the challenges.


WOW you have been busy and they are all stunning.....beautiful work!!! Hmmmmmm you can't tell us about the photo and not have it to


Wow you did get something done, and a lot at that. Here I was thinking more talking than creating but it seems you managed both!! Yes I do love the doilies, esp the heart one! So excited for you and your new online store. A month is a long time for us to wait Kristy. Can't you work 24-7 and open sooner??? lol. O.K. then, I'll try to be patient!

WOW! What a beautiful card you have made. I love all of these, the flowers looks awesome and the DOILIES - what a great idea! :)


Wow, I could just imagine you and Kelly busily crafting away until the early (or late) hours of the morning - lol.

These cards are all gorgeous and I love the one with the photo.


Kellie Winnell

The photos really don't do any of these cards the justice they deserve, they look even better in real life I promise you all that! I loved our weekend, am mega tired right now and about to hit the bed at 9pm!! For me you know that is really early! Can still not get over we went what like 25 min without talking?! I love everything about all these cards, especially all the things on them you borrowed off me, hehe. Bring on next sleep over!
