a little while ago I was sent some Gorgeous Cosmo Cricket paper from Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft and asked to make some cards....What Fun!
These Papers, Ribbons and Embellishments are a dream to work with and oooohhh so pretty :)
I made these two cards, both with lots of sewing and layering. These papers reminded me of Patchwork fabric and all of the quilts I have made and those hidden away in my cupboard unfinished (oh the shame....lol!) They appeared in
Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft
Vol 15 No 4
I know it's been ages since I last blogged, our September was our so busy with 2 School Musicals, A Singing Concert, A Drama Festival, A Trip to Sydney for State Tournament of the Minds, a Weekend Trip to our old home town of Inverell to see my parents, A Craft Fair at which I had a stall with my jewellery, and so on......

Now it's October we are coming up to Breath... :)
and we start our School holidays on Friday afternoon
and my Husband starts 4weeks annual leave - Yay!!!


A Big Happy Birthday to
Nathan, MJ, Grandma, Bradley & Jacob
I love you all!!!!

May your October be a Truly Fun one!

I do love your jewellery Gillian but gee its nice to see some paper here too :) Isn't it interesting when we think it was each others paper inspiration that began our friendship, to see where our respective creative journeys have taken us!

Oh Gill, You've done such wonderful things with these papers, I have them and have found them quite tricky to work with - you've inspired me to have another go!

Came by especially today to wish you a Happy Birthday
I think I've got the date right but you never know!
