Home Again

Hello  to all my blogging friends on this lovely Spring day. It is great to be home again, even though we had a wonderful time with our families. We had a couple of nights at Cromwell, with our daughter ( her husband is an oil rig man, hence he was away ) on the way down South, then we took the two little people with us down to the farm.They always enjoy the time spent with their cousins on the farm and of course, doing all the farm activities. I'm sure their father's hair would have stood on end, many a time, if he'd seen what they got up to. Anyway they're safely back home and all's well!
I will put up three cards that I made for special orders before I went away. At the moment I am working on projects for Kaisercraft. Boy, you're all going to love these new collections! Their papers are just getting better and better - I love them all!! Of course, I haven't got a paper addiction - it's good you can't see into my workroom!!

This card was made for a young lady who is just turning 15 and apparently loves fashion. DCWV  Lemon Flower papers were used ( I love them ), the flowers were made with Tim Holtz Rosettes Dies ( it is so easy to use and I think the fowers are so effective), and Martha Stewart Border punch.

Another card for Sarah who enjoys playing the Saxaphone. I made this card using the Kaisercraft Velvet Ensemble collection - even the saxaphone was part of this paper. What would we do without Spellbinders dies for cutting out our shapes?

This last card was made for a special patchwork friend who is moving away from the area. And Mary, we are sorry you are leaving us! Kaisercraft Bonjour range was used, Tim Holtz birdcage die and Kaiser flowers.I glimmer misted both the birdcage and the bird after stamping it with a script stamp- the bird that is!
We have a very big weekend ahead of us this coming weekend as it is the Geraldine Arts and Plants Festival.Our little town really does come to life, there is so much going on! As well as all the other activities round the town the patchwork group have a big exhibition of all the quilts made this year - it is absolutely stunning to see them all. I have three that I have made so will show them later on the blog. I think one of the Christchurch families are coming down to stay so we will enjoy that - it's great for Darby and Joan to have some life around the place!!
Must stop waffling and get back to work,
God bless you all, thanks for checking this out, love your comments.
Betsy, XX
