I'm back!

Well it's been a long time between posts. We have had school holidays here for two weeks, with me having a cold for the first week. We were supposed to go away for the second week, but decided to stay home and do some fun stuff in Sydney. We had a ball and went iceskating, to the Australian Museum, to Imax, the bike park and lots more. I even managed to get in some crafting with my friends.

My Auntie arrived to stay from New Zealand this week and last week I decided to finally finish off unpacking and sorting the kids room and my craft room. I have attempted this a couple of times but every time I have been to Ikea to buy the bookcases they haven't had them in stock. However this time I went they did have them, so I have had a major cleanout and unpacked all the boxes we had left from when we moved. Unfortunately when I do these major clean outs, I have more mess than ever and it seemed as if it was never going to get tidy again, but fortunately by 2.30pm on Monday afternoon it was all sorted (which was lucky as I had to leave home at 2.50pm to collect Jess from school and then go straight to the airport!).

Sam is home sick today, he woke me up at 4am this morning and has been vomitting every 20 mins. Poor little thing, but he seems to be on the mend now. It is a cold miserable rainy day here in Sydney, so it has been nice to be curled up on the couch with him watching a movie.

The card I have to share with you today is one I made for a friend who recently took possession of her newly built home. It was case'd from one I saw on the convention swap board, but unfortunately I have no idea who to credit for it.

I started off by stamping the neighbourhood jumbo wheel across a piece of basic gray cardstock and another one across some barely banana card (you only need to cut a window out of the banana one). I then cut around the buildings and adhered them onto a piece of basic black card. I punched out a moon from the barely banana card and stamped the owl wih basic gray ink onto whisper white card and cut it out. I used the Big Shot and cut out two of the little leaves dies and stuck it all together. The last thing I did was stamp "congratulations" from the teeny tiny sentiment stamp set and punch it out with the word window punch and adhered that.

Next time I have a very simple single layer card to share with you. I have already done the post and it is scheduled to come up on Friday, so don't forget to stop by and check it out.

Til next time, keep on creating.
