Hehehe ... they are my daughters on the cover. Cool huh?
They had a fundraiser for Heart Kids and for $2 you could get your pic taken and they put the cover onto a catalogue for you. How could I resist? And it is for a great charity after all (so I got 4 copies for the grandma's and a friend). Tomorrow I have to take Miss C back with her BFF so they can get one together. And while I am there I am picking up another small desk for my room :)

Anyway, I thought I would share it with you because you never know, it may inspire you too!
Once I have had a chance to make something, I will come back and post it here on my blog. And if by some chance you find yourself inspired, please post a link to your creation here in the comments so that I can see it!

So with hubby away, my new job, and 315 metres of ribbon to cut, sort and bag for a ribbon swap I am in, it has meant that I have had no time to stamp all week :( I did get some new stuff from Stampin' Up! this week though so I am hoping to get to play lots on the weekend.
The girls also start school holidays this week (for 2 weeks) so I will be working around that, and looking after my friend's boys for a little while next week as well. But as long as I get some stamping time in, and get to hang out with the girls I will be one happy camper.
Now onto the reason for my post ... this week's sketch over at Just Add Ink. I have gone bright this week with a colour combination of tempting turquoise and melon mambo, although it's not quite as bright in reality as it looks in the pic ;) I also flipped the sketch to fit the idea I had for the card as well.
The rest of the DT have made some gorgeous creations this week, so be sure to pop over and check them out!

It was so great to catch up with my upline Leonie and one of her other downlines Deanne, who both came up from Kalgoorlie as well as other stamping friends I have met before but never get to catch up with. And it was wonderful to finally meet some more of my online friends, including three of my fellow DT members from Just Add Ink! And hopefully I won't have to wait until next years Regionals to meet up with them again ;)
Anyway, before I fall asleep at my keyboard I will post my pics and go and catch up on some much needed sleep. Getting up at 6am on a Saturday should be illegal! LOL

Anyway, I just have a quick card share today for this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge over at Karen's blog. I made this on Sunday but have only just got around to posting it. I am frantically trying to get some swaps done for the Perth Regionals this weekend. This will be my first time swapping and I am always worried that people will not like my cards and so I haven't done them before. This time I thought I would have a go and have so far done a couple of different swap cards to take.
Anyway, here is the great sketch that Karen put up this week.
And here is my card. Supplies:
Cardstock: Chocolate chip, pretty in pink, whisper white, certainly celery
Paper: A walk in the park patterned paper
Stamps: Stampin' Up! Greeting and donuts by Taylored Expressions.
Other: Martha Stewart border punch, beads, stitching, modern label punch, Espresso dimensional pearls, prismacolour pencils.

This week I have made two cards using this sketch. They are both quite different in colour and theme, but I think this sketch works great for both of them! The first one is a bright kids birthday card. Supplies:
The second is a card I made for my hubby for our 16th Wedding Anniversary which we are celebrating today. I tried to make it less 'girly' by changing the ribbon for some scalloped edge strips of coordinating cardstock. He doesn't like too much 'stuff' on his cards. LOL
