Had to share

I am so excited. I found these gorgeous new stamps from Ppinkydolls on Etsy and needed to share one of the cards I made with one of the images. This is Christmas Angel and you can find her here

I coloured her in different Christmas colours to normal as I just think she is not a red girl (although have coloured her in red too - to come soon). There are so many different and gorgeous designs by this designer - you need to check them out.

I gave this card to one of my dearest friends - Paula. She loved it. Even said she should have got me to make cards for her - yes you should have ;) LOL.

Birthday image for a Christmas card

Hello my lovelies. Another card. So sorry it took so long to pop another card up but feeling very lucky that I can do lots of things in my life - card making is just one of them. 

Have started my own 't-shirt' business. I am putting your favourite quotes on shirts. 'Suck It Up Princess'. Beast Mode. You name it we can do it. If you are interested check out Booya Designs on Facebook here. 

This card was made for my friend Tania again and I used this image from Spesch Designer Stamps - it is called Birthday Present and is available here. Thought it would be great to use one of our stamps as a Christmas stamp even though it's original purpose was for Birthday cards. I love how she came up in the christmas colours. 

Poem on the inside. Love it. Signifies Christmas.

Christmas Elf 2

I have been trying to make some cards for a friends sister. I have finally finished all six of them and this card is the second one. I love Christmas colours but with the non traditional christmas papers out there these days I also love changing it up. This paper has the Dark Aqua and light green colours which are starting to become one of my favourites. 

This image (again) is Floppy from Make it Crafty and you can find him here. He is awesome to colour and as you can see looks awesome on the front of a card. 

A close up of this guy is always needed. I love colouring the stripey hat. He is so adorable. LOL.

The inside of the card has a poem.

The poem:

As you relish the goodies, decorate every nook and corner of you home
and enjoy the get-togethers,
May the joy and festivities contiue to radiate in your lives,
long after Christmas is gone.
Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

Hope you enjoy your day. I will be posting up a few more cards over the next couple of days.

Been a while

 So it has been a while since I have posted on this blog and I am totally and utterly sorry. With my study - now a qualified Personal Trainer - and doing all my gym stuff I have neglected my card making and am I so glad I have my groove back. I am loving making cards.

Last weekend I attended and had a stall at my kids School Carnival. I shared the stall with some good girlfriends who make jewellery and candles. Unfortunately I only sold one card but it made me look through my cards and realize that I love doing colouring with Copics and also love making cards.

With Christmas coming up I was asked to make six cards for a sister of my good girlfriend. This card is the first one I have made for her. It is using the Make it Crafty Socks digital stamp which you can get here.

 I love this stamp. I used it last year for one of my Christmas cards but made him green. Yep - Green. LOL. He looked like a real elf. Was amusing. Anyway....!!!! hahahaha. I love the way he coloured up and this paper is the bomb. I actually purchased it a while ago and don't know what paper it is but that is not an issue.

This inside of the card reads:

 Merry Christmas - Anon

Merry Christmas to friends!
Merry Christmas to foes!
The world's bright with joy, so
Forget all your woes.
The earth's full of beauty, of
Love and good cheer,
Merry Christmas to all and a 
Happy New Year!

Nearly the end

The 12Week challenge is coming to an end. Woot. But I have been doing well. Food wise I have been sticking to my meal plan and only having the cheats that I am supposed to. Now to carry that lifestyle over to my everyday life when the challenge has ended. 

Below are photos that were taken on the 26th October on a night out to dinner for a girlfriend's birthday. Was a great night and was nice to be able to wear a dress and look nice in it.

Paleo life for me

Food art is the bomb so my first photo is my attempt at making my food as tasty looking as it does actually taste. Who wants to eat unattractive food right...!!! LOL.

Spinach, cucumber, capsicum, homemade guacamole and salmon with herbs. So yummy. Ultra healthy and utterly Paleo. Yep Paleo. It has been an adjustment. No wheat products and no dairy products. As much raw vegetables and salad as you can muster.
Sweet potato is one of my main sources of carbs. Love making and eating baked sweet potato with Turmeric and cracked pepper. Nice nice nice. 

I guess the one thing you have to do also is to have good food prep. The above photo is of my food for a day out and about. Yummo. Nice huh...!!!! 

My new meal plan rocks and really enjoying it - especially the banana in the morning. 

Enjoy your day. Might have to experiment with Paleo recipes and post up.

It has started

The new 12 Week Challenge that I signed up for started a week ago. I have been working out hard all week and will continue to do so. Bootcamp was this morning but unfortunately I think I have done too much already this week and listened to my body and missed it. Spewing but need the rest. 

Hope you crafting advenures are going well.

New dress - feeling fabulous

Yes I look awesome. LOL. My new dress. New outlook on life. Feeling really positive about everything. 

Hope you all are having an awesome week. 

Two days until I start the new 12 Week Challenge at Goodlife Fountain Gate. Looking forward to getting started. 

Yes I still have a Mummy tummy but hoping to change that.

Update with photo

Even though I posted the other day I thought I would put up a more recent photo. I am not good at taking selfies but I was feeling super awesome on Wednesday when I took this photo so thought I would share. 

I am 4kgs lighter in this photo compared to last one. Gained lots of muscle and lost about 5% body fat.

Just an update on myself, seeing I haven't written anything here for a while.

I am currently focusing on my health and fitness and that means no yummy food or cards are being made. I have done a 12 week challenge at my local gym and the end result was the photo below. About to embark on another one on the 10th August to get to a much smaller version of me. Still the same just different size. 

Hope you hang around. I might get back to the crafting one day but for now it is on the back burner.
