Happy Birthday Dad

Rain Hail or Shine - my Dad plays golf. That is really lucky because here in Melbourne we can have all of those in just one day. Sometimes even in one hour. 
Every Wednesday and every Saturday - without fail, my Dad is out on the golf course. He does however, draw the line at ... lightening. Something about golf stick thingys and flashes from the sky not being a good mix for your health.  
This little fella from Digi Stamp Boutique was just perfect for Dads birthday card. He is called 'Golf Stan' and can be found here over at Digi Stamp Boutique along with heaps of other images. Stay tuned because I may have bought a couple more images.
I am entering 'Golf Stan' in the following challenges:

Crafty Catz #134 Card for a Man
One Stop Craft #184 For the Boys
Allsorts #156 Happy Birthday to Someone Special

In my part of the world we are heading into Winter, with cold days and lots of rain so I had visions of dark skies and gloomy stars for my card. But, then I saw this cute little Bugaboo image - Boo Peeker - Moon - and all my pre ideas went out the window. Seems to happen to me a lot!

Sweet Stampin - Flower Power

I had visions of the 60's (from pictures I have seen of course). Peace signs, daisy chains, long flowing skirts, long flowing hair (for the girls too) and psychedelic colours. 
BUT as I was browsing through some of my digital images I came across this little Pure Innocence girl with her pot of flowers .... the very next thing I know I have my pink Copics out and my favourite floral paper and there is not a 'peace' sign in sight - except for the one I stuck to my craft room door saying: 
Mum would like some peace and quiet - she is creating. 

Pop on over to the Sweet Stampin site and join in our FLOWER POWER challenge this week. The rest of the team have created fabulous cards to inspire you and we can't wait to see your creations too. My Favourite Things are giving away a $25 voucher to a lucky winner and Joanna Sheen has a monthly prize voucher to give away too.

Just Because ... I like to colour

I made this card just because ... I like ... NO! Love ... to colour. 
I think that as a child I must have been deprived of colouring. Possibly I only had the 24 and not the 48 set of pencils. Maybe Santa didn't leave enough colouring books in my Christmas stocking. Probably my older sister secretly hoarded all our colouring 'stuff'. 
I figure that there must be some deep and meaningful reason for my colouring obsession in my adult years ... and if anyone touches my Copic markers I will lay on the floor, cry, kick my legs and scream. :-)

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges: 
Craft us Crazy #26 Fav Stamp Company and/or found inspiration 
(Well I found inspiration by using one of my favourite stamp company images)
Southern Girls #43 Get your Girly on
Kenny K #91 Anything Goes
Incy Wincy #143 Mothers day or Girlie

Crafty Sentiments Spots or Stripes
