Fun with Tilda

 This is a card I made today, had nothing planned for it.. just made it up as I went.. Coloured Tilda with copics and made the flowers by cutting out different sizes on my cricut. Also used my new fiskars border punch :) .

Butterfly Love

I did a few cards today...
Here is one of my favourites:

I've been having a lot of fun with my new cricut.
I like the butterfly image and punched two coloured flowers out just for something different. I love purple and red together.

Challenge winner?!

I can't believe it, I won a challenge at Scrapper's Delight... I definitely did not expect to win, I always doubt my craftiness and think everyone's work is much better than mine. I think I need to start believing in myself more.

This is the challenge I won HERE

I love my new cricut!

So I received my new Cricut in the post a few days ago, I think I may have screamed the whole street down with excitement. I bought it off ebay with everything I need to start and 21 cricut cartridges!


I got some really good cartridges.. Some of my favs are "Forever Young" and "Give a Hoot"... I'm still a true beginner and trying to work it all out. Its heaps of fun!
I've tried out a few cards that I  shall post soon...

Copic crazed

 Omg.. I love my new copics!! They are so cool! I can see how collecting them might become addictive because I'm already thinking about the colours I want next.. The are expensive, but totally worth it I think...:)

So I figured out today how generous and caring some people can be. A friend of the family organised a charity event today at his venue and raised money to purchase me a wheelchair. I can't believe it... I feel so loved :).
I didn't stay that long, but it was nice to get out of the house for a while.

If I was told 6 months ago that I would need a wheelchair to get around.. I would just not believe it! It's crazy how life can change so quickly and you just have to plod along and deal with what you've been handed. Everyone has issues, it's all about how we take them and deal with them that really matters.

At least I have my baby...

The spunk rat!

My SPUNKY poodle Louis!!

He is my little boy, pride and joy and makes life interesting!!

Recent creations

Seeing as I'm a little craft deprived, I thought I'd share some recent scrapbook pages.. I am only new to scrapbooking, so I guess I will just keep improving with time and practice...

Also, a scrapbook layout by my mum..

This is the crafty mess we work in! haha

Not fair

Did not do much today... Have not done art or craft in a couple of days! Probably start having withdrawals soon. Argh...

Complete Newbie!!

So new to blogging... Pretty simple so far (thank God :)). 
Hoping to start creating something everyday and posting it on here.. Maybe this will give me the push and motivation I need. I've been putting things off for way too long.. Oh well, at least I've made the first step.
