Today I have had my first attempt at a paper purse from the scorpal magazine. Thankyou so much to the very talented and sharing Kitty Franken for posting this. Here is the link

I have also included a photo of some King Proteus flowers which my sister picked for me over Christmas. They are just beautifull. She is lucky enough to be living next to a no longer utilised proteus farm and the owner allows her to pick anything she likes. I was thrilled with these and have kept the larger display and given the one on the left to MIL who was also delighted.
Hoping you have all enjoyed your week and are looking forward to some time with family and friends over the new year weekend. Be safe & happy!!

A couple more earlier cards from this year.

Recent cards

Here are some photos of recent cards I have made.
I think I may have deleted the rest of my Christmas cards so far I have only one to show!
The others have been made at different times over the past few motnhs and were most enjoyable to make.

Kittens at play!

Our kittens at play. We can no longer tell them apart. They are both girls and we ended up with two as we could not bring ourselves to separate them. They are sisters and sooo cute!!

Other favourite things!

Oh and btw....I neglected to declare my love of cooking, eating and our two new kittens!!
Hence the recipes and the kitten photos!!

About me....

Welcome to my blog!

The sole purpose of this is to share my interest in papercrafting.
My favourite tools are the cricut paper cutter and of course my much loved scor-pal! What did I ever do without these......truth be known I did lots of sewing and in particular machine embroidery and patchwork........these are now second place.

Also I am a busy full time nurse manager, mother of two and wife of one (lol)! I am also studying my Masters of Nursing at present and enjoying the summer break.

We live in Maffra, a small town in Gippsland, Victoria. We have two children, one in Melbourne at University (21yo daughter) and our son at school (15yo).

I am so looking forward to meeting other paper crafters and cricut lovers and to sharing patterns and ideas. The scor-pal and cricut are always on my desk and never, never put away. No matter how busy I am with others things I always find time to do atleast one little project.

I will post some of my work and call in regularly to add to my blog!
