Fancy Nancy Arrived.......

I would like to introduce you to "Fancy Nancy".

She keeps me company while I'm at the computer. Nancy was handmade by Ro (a wonderful Canadian lady) who makes some fantastic dolls. I won her as a prize for creating this Blog and making regular posts.
Visit her blog to see some more incredible creations.

Thank You Card

Just playing with some card layouts yesterday and came up with this one - loosely based on one in a magazine. The wording and flower were cut on my Cricut machine. Floral paper is DCWV from the Glitter Stack. I used stickles on the lettering and flower. You can't really tell from the pic but card is three fold with the narrow mauve panel at the front, then the floral paper in the middle, then the mauve cardstock for the back panel. I haven't decided what to put on the inside yet.

New Card Creation

I've been busy with visitors and various other activities but finally found time to make some cards. Lounge room renovation is complete (except for me putting back all my things in the wall units) and the garden is starting to look great - we're gearing up for a hot summer here.

My most recent card creation - made for a swap.

Baby Card

A baby card I created for a Card Swap recently.

Bromeliad Garden

At last - the final stage in our garden renovation has nearly been completed (it's taken 3 years). I planted a bromeliad garden at the bottom of the large Poinciana tree in the back garden. The plants are only babies yet - can't wait to see them fully grown.

Kitchen/Dining room/Lounge Renovations

It's been a while since I posted - been really busy. We've just completed painting and semi renovating our living area in the house. Unfortunately it's not finished yet, have to order the carpet (getting laid in a week), order the lights (should be here next week) and order the new handles for the kitchen cupboards (should be here next week). Grrrr.... does nobody carry any stock any more? It's very frustrating. I must say so far it is looking great - it's amazing what a coat of paint will do. I will post some pics when it is finished.

Other than that I have made a few cards (can't show them yet as they are for a swap). My ATC Swap group is in full swing and have also committed myself to a Tag swap - Yikes, I'll have to find the time to create them all. I have also been assisting my daughter scrapbook her pages from her 2 year trip to London and Europe. Big job seeing that she bought home about 15 CD's of photos - but seriously we are only scrapbooking a select few, condensing the project to 3 pages per country, that still makes at least 45 pages!!!

Mothers Day & pots

Boy, half way through May already - where has the time gone this year? I had a lovely Mothers Day, went to brunch with the family and received some Bunnings Gift Vouchers to buy some new ceramic pots for the garden to replace the ones that were broken when they fell over in a strong gust of wind. I have to wait for new stock to arrive as there is not a lot of variety available at the moment. Will post pics when I get them set up and in position.

Potted petunias from last season.

Not too much happening lately - my XP computer was playing up badly and a reformat was on the cards, so I decided to upgrade to Windows Vista, but problems occurred and I had to do a clean install. It has taken me a while to get everything back up and running how I like it. My sound card isn't compatible though, even with the new drivers installed - have to wait for an answer from support. My wireless adapter wasn't working either so I had to go back to using an ethernet cable, until such time as there is an upgraded driver (if ever). At least I have internet and it is probably faster than wireless - but, it's all good and I do like all the bells and whistles on Vista. What can I say - I'm a visual person LOL.

We spent Easter in Townsville and went to the Cowboys vs West Tigers football game. Great game in the end - Cowboys winning by 1 point.

I need some inspiration................. I have ATC's to do, scrapbooking and haven't painted in ages. I did make some easter cards though which I gave to my family.

Taipans Presentation Dinner - Starry, Starry Night

Saturday night we attended the annual Taipans NBL Basketball Teams Presentation Dinner. A great night was had by all.

Below is one of the recent pages I have completed for my Grandmother's scrapbook album. Most of the photos are very old and unfortuneately I have little information about them to add to the pages.
