An Aussie Baby Welcome

My cousin is due to give birth any day now so in preparation for the event I made this sweet little card as she is Queenslander but she lives in UK now, so I wanted to give her something that had an Aussie flavour and was gender neutral as the gender is unknown.

Stamps: Lawn Fawn Critters Down Under stamp & die set

Autumn Goddess

It was a successful day of being on holidays and ignoring the kids and spending the day in my studio challenging myself to put into practice all that I've learnt from the past Create & Learn classes from Kit & Clowder. I decided to use one of the recent Krista Smith subscription images over a random background images I found in my collection.

Racing by

My brother-in-law is one of those fitness fanatics who loves to challenge the limits of his body by competing in Ironman competitions (which are insane ultra triathlons of 3.8km swim, followed by 180km bicycle ride, finished off with a 42km marathon run!!!). He competed in one in early December and earned a place to go to Kona in Hawaii for the world championships! He celebrated his birthday the other day so I wanted to create a special card to recognise his super efforts.
