'Bicycle Kaylee'

Hi again,

Wow I'm on a roll, two posts in two days. Well it is also that I really wanted to get into some challenges and of course I procrastinated and now I'm entering just as it is closing.

Today I am entering the Totally awesome Ombre Challenge at Some Odd Girl. I sooo love Some Odd Girl stamps, I would almost say I'm addicted. I was very lucky to win a set of SOG stamps so I am waiting patiently for them to arrive, shame I live so far away.

Here is my card for the challenge.

This is Bicycle Kaylee by SOG
Papers are Echo Park For the Record 2 Collection
Markers used are Promarkers
Ombre ink by Color Box
Spellbinders Blossom Nesties

Thanks for popping by, it's so late so I had better go to bed, got a busy day at work tomorrow.
Have a great week!

Cheers Nic

'Spell on Ya'

Hi there,

This is my first time I am entering a card making challenge.  I am a little nervous but I shouldn't be as the winners are chosen at random.  I guess it's just that this is the first time I have put my cards out there in public.  My family love them and well I guess I am pretty proud of my creations but I have seen some of the cards out there in blogland that are so amazing, I can't live up to those but I am happy trying.

So here is my card.  This is my Halloween style card, although we don't celebrate Halloween here in Oz too much it was fun and it got me in the spooky mood.

 The cute witch is 'Spell on Ya'
 by Tiddly Inks
Markers used are Finecolour
The papers used are Echo Park
Sentiment by Lili of the Valley
Star flourish die cut by Nellie Snellen

My very first post!

This blog is purely for my benefit to share some of my card creations and to try and enter some challenges.  I am definitely still learning about blogging and also my card making but I am having fun doing it. 
Well that is it for now as this was just a test and my kiddies are bugging me for a bike ride to the park. Bye Bye
