Hello, Well what a day. I am late with this post because i was not feeling great today. We also had Carries school harvest service but just as i was leaving i got a call saying my mum had fallen down the stairs. She has had so many falls lately. Her brain Tumour has left her with mobility and co-ordination problems as well as short term memory loss and very poor concentration. We are not sure why she falls. She just has no idea. We got the Careline service installed for her so she has her button on her wrist which has came in handy a few times!

Anyway enough of me babbling on. I am here with my card for the new Elphine House Australia challenge!

Pretty Bubbles Everywhere.....

Good Morning! At last i am here with a card...made just for the fun of it! I have had a few rough days with kidney pain and toothache just finish me right off!! Anyway feeling bit better today, well the toothache has gone. 

I was in the middle of a card that i had on order for wedding when i seen this image printed off and was shouting at me to colour her! Before i knew it i had the whole card finished!

All the way through making the card i got the tune of "I'm forever blowing bubbles, pretty bubbles everywhere. They fly so high, way up to the sky"..etc etc!! Probably lucky for you all that you cant hear my very awful singing!!

The image is called "Bubbles Girl" from Mo Manning!

Materials Used
Papers - Tilly Daydream from Docrafts
Dies - Marianne Design Flourishes, Spellbinders Morrocan Accents, Cuttlebug Flower die (not sure what its called as i have had it forever!!)
Embellishments - Lace, Tulle, gems, from Hobbycraft. Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Stickles Stardust and touches of Glamour Dust.
Pin was made from loose beads and pin by myself.

A closer look!

Some challenges that i love to play along with...
Southern Girls - Inspired by song - I'm forever blowing bubbles!
Crafter Cafe - Faourite craft item - Where do i start but at the moment Tulle  and making my own pins are rught up there!

Well have a great day whatever you may be doing! The weather here is getting colder by the day so its time for the winter wardrope to come out!!
Take Care and Hugs,

Operation Write Home Blog Hop!!

Hello Hopper! Thank you sooo much for coming by!

We brought our creativity together in the hopes that we would inspire you to join us (DT members) in doing a good deed!
Most of you know our Boys and Gals from the armed forces are deployed all over the world. Sometimes these men and woman are in places that make it very hard, or they’re far away from anywhere that they can pick up a sweet card to send a quick note home. Luckily, they have OPERATION WRITE HOME (OWH). OWH is a non-profit organization that sends special boxes filled with cards to soldiers all over the world. How can you help OWH keep the good deed going? Making cards!!! Yes! OWH angels receive tons of handmade cards from crafters all over the world, then they check and organize cards to be sent out to our soldiers. Take a look at some of their own words about OWH packs on the Hero Blog.

Now we would love for you to join us to help OWH. We thought it would be amazing fun to do a blog hop to inspire you! Design Teams from PaperTemptress, Oozak and Color me Creative Class will join together in one amazing Card Drive HOP. The fun just gets better! You can join in by making a project (following OWH – size and safety guidelines), entering a picture of the project on the hop inlinkz (One project linked per person please) then mailing the project to us. We would loooove it if you could send as many as you can by November 7th (we will screen them and send all of them to OWH) . You could win super prizes from amazing, super generous sponsors!!! YES!! You do a good deed and you also can win a sweet gift!!!

Thank you to our sponsors

Here is my card...well cards. I decided to make 3 of them that all co-ordinate. I was generously given a cardstock pack from Paper Tempress and Butterfly Prncess Digi Stamp from Sweet Pea Stamps!

It’s time to HOP around. Leave little note as you pass by these lovely designers’ blogs! Don’t forget to add you project to the inlinkz at the end of the Hop! You will also find the address to mail your cards at the end of the hop. You can Hop throughout the month of October. This way everyone in their own time can hop and join in!
