Not this old?

Hi there , welcome to my room and this reestablished site of mine . This is where I am sharing a collection of cards made just for my stash .

Cold and wet here today so spare time for crafting . looking forward to tomorrow morning when I have a couple of friends over for card making .  Have 3 kits for them to make and take . Actually has been a busy week for me but I handled it ok .Two birthday cards , a DT card and two B/cards and a few comments . No time for some groups that I had joined in and am  so sorry .Feel bad about not joining in on some of the group shares and conversations and it has been months since I made an  appearance . Have you done that ? There are so many wonderful people out there in so many fabulous groups sharing so much talent and friendship that it really is hard not to want to join in .

But I digress….

Here is another square masculine card .

P1030787 Found this image on  the internet . The back ground and sentiment tags are from Kraftyhands CD ROM , By Gone Transport . Rhinestones from Kraftyhands  Card base is from my  SU stash .Star punch from SU. all elements are edged sponged with  JH, Distress Ink , Vintage Photo.I went over the word “older” with red  Wink of Stella .

Must find some images for male cards other than motor related as I am on a roll with masculine cards .

Must leave the room for now as it is afternoon tea time and I am craving for a sweet biscuit.

See you here again soon ,  hugs Shirley-Anne.

Super Autumn weather today . Very quiet in the Barber household . A quick ride around the block so that Doug  could get some fresh air . A little house work , some meal preparation then in my craft room while DH watched a movie and dozed .

Always wanted to try roller skates. Left it too late now of course , even for the skimpy uniform ! Hello there , thanks for calling in and I hope you like my card for today .


Pumpkin Pie , SU , for  C6 card base with layer of older SU paper from my stash .Sentiment from SU set , Endless Birthday Wishes . Small cup cake image from clipart on Pinterest ..Bling from my stash .

I printed digi clip art image and cut her out leaving a panel on one side of her while cutting around the image on the other .  Stamped the sentiment , added bling and layered the lot onto Pumpkin card leaving small border .Small cup cake punched out with circle punch  and adhered to more Pumpkin Pie then punched out with scallop circle punch .This was 3D into corner .

Would like to enter this into this challenge …

Cake or cookie , love them both ..

Thanks again for checking in .

See you again soon , Shirley-Anne.

Birthday baking

Well hello there .Hope that all is well with you and yours . Doug and I are out and about still , even though the mornings are crisp now .But no photos as I think the koalas have headed for the hills .

Welcome to my room . Today I am sharing card for my girls to make .I have been browsing through pinterest and clip art .

The  coloured image on card front though is from a CD free from a magazine ,  Digital Crafting . Time poor at the moment so no time for colouring .

P1030759              P1030760

The idea for the gingham strips top and bottom on kraft card front came from blog land . I have cut out images without leaving white border this time as I think that makes them POP more , in this instance any way . The second photo is of the inside . Really happy with this card .The two sentiments are from the same stamp set from “Just by Jesta” DLU526S  sold by The Stamp Trap a loooong time ago .

Well there you go , a quick post . Hope that you liked the card and that my girls will too on Tuesday morning at craft .

See you again soon .

Hi , welcome to my room . It is fabulous to see you here .

I hope that there is a smile on your face and a spring in your step .

I see that my stash of sympathy cards is low . So , the card that I made today is a card for that purpose .

The card base is Naturals White with Old Olive mat. Both from SU . The image,  I found on pinterest. The sentiment and punch used are from SU . A Spellbinders die used for the image . The green gingham paper is from a C6 Kraftyhands pack.


I am looking forward to another quiet weekend some where along Linear Park trail .And if the weather is kind we might see a koala or two that I can photograph .

Wonder what the weekend will bring you . What ever is in store for you ,I hope that you enjoy every moment . Be happy .


See you here again soon .

A perfect day .




A beautiful Autumn day for Adelaide , although the morning was ,    BRISK.

I do hope that your weather is just as glorious .  If it is not,  then I send warm wishes for a lovely day any way .

Went out early on gophers to Linear Park and headed for the hills . The trails were quite busy with walkers , joggers and dogs . There were many elderly people  strolling  , there were couples with children ambling along  ,scantily attired young ladies jogging .and a few men with sweaty T-shirts actually running ….and puffing . LOL


Just one of the photos that I took this morning . I put more pics on my Face book page if you want to pop over to see .

While I am here , I would like to share a card that I made today .



All card and paper along with sentiment and punch used are SU stock . The pink pearls are from Kraftyhands , while the floral die cut is from a  Kaisercraft    pack .  The white layer has been embossed . I adhered the flower and sentiment  with foam dots for added dimension .

So , as you can see , I have had a fabulous day . Hope that you did too .

I was thinking of this , as I passed  others today .

See you again soon .

Hugs Shirley-Anne.

Birthday tweet .

Almost end of March ! Do you feel that the year is passing far too quickly?

I do. The days are just a blur , same old same old . Stop the train , I want to get off  and catch some thing slower . I have slowed down some what this week or so after leaving one of my DT positions . Time will tell if I manage now ,  to use my days more wisely.

Welcome to my room . Thanks for calling in , please say hello before you go .

Tonight I have managed to complete a card that I began  a week ago  . Wonders will never cease as I have even added some flowers .



White square card base . Used scrap brown card and coordinating papers and flowers from my stash . Image , a free find on the internet. The  sentiment , The Creative Stamp Collection , has to be 10 years old I think .

Well the clock is still ticking away and now it is time for bed . But before I go here is  a thought for today , before it is tomorrow . LOL



See you again soon .
