Introducing Pat!!

I love school holidays...I have spent some time with my new little dog...Pat...he is very playful and a pleasure to have around the home. He keeps me company! Over the holidays we went away for a few days so Pat had to have a sleep over at Grandma's....Pat does not like chooks!! Pat went on chain!!
 While we were away we got to paddle down the Mary River at my brother in laws. We all had a turn and ended up with a wet behind. Nice!!
 We also had a go at ice skating......lots of fun......this I managed to stay upright.
I was, according to the girls very slow and stayed near the edge. Rachel fell over quite a few times and ended up with a purple knee and Kirsten did the old sympathy fall......someone fell over in front of her and she fell over as an act of sympathy;)
 We also got to meet our newest nephew, Fletcher. Here is Ruby showing off her new brother.
Now, I don't normally take a photo of my washing but todays was particularly impressive. I washed a quilt to go in our quilt show on the weekend and had a few others that I washed and I thought what a great photo this would Ta Da!!
I have made a few cards yesterday that I will add to the blog rather I hope to see you back soon.

Christmas Quilt done and dusted...

 ....YEAH!!! I am super organised for Christmas this year....I have my Christmas quilt finished. (Nobody knows that I was hoping to have it finished for last Christmas:)
This quilt was a BOM in Homespun Magazine last year. I changed the colours to suit and I have changed some blocks slightly along the way. I am super happy with the finished quilt.

Bits and Pieces

Off the page....
A canvas for hubby.
A range of photos from our cattle, pets and GRASS!!
Just to show that sometimes grass can grow. (In the middle of a drought sometimes you doubt the ability of the land to ever grow grass again.)
 I saw this scrapbook layout on pinterest and wanted to try it for myself. I used the Big Shot to make the circles and I have used distress ink (walnut stain) to ink the edges of all the circles.
 More scrapbooking....Happy snaps from school trip!
Hope that you can get some photo's scrapbooked or created into something off the page.

Layered stamping

As promised, the card that I gave to a dear friend last month. While looking through a stamping magazine a found this technique where you have the 3 pieces of paper that you are stamping on layered on top of each other then you stamp your image/s. Once you have finished stamping you add your mounts (brown cards). I love the finished effect.

We had a miracle on our other block in the form of a storm which dumped nearly 4 inches of rain very quickly and filled our very dry dams. We had taken most of the cattle off this block due to the dry so now we can restock again.  
 Grass in the making......
 On a crafty note....we have been tidying up over the holidays and this card was found. It belongs with this post here. I love these funky houses. They are great for using up all those scraps of papers.

I have made a card recently for a friend, but I can't share this with you yet as the recipient is still yet to receive it. Check back soon!!

Hello 2014

I would like to wish you all a Very Happy 2014. 

 2014 has started with a big bang...yes a big birthday for me!
 2014 has also started off really well in the card making scene.

I would also love to say that it has rained here and things are looking great but I can't....that one will have to wait another day....but I do love this sunset.
Happy crafting in 2014 to all.
