30 Days of Creativity (Day 28) Pirates VS Ninjas

OK, I’ll admit it. I don’t do pirates and ninjas. I am the mother of three girls. But it was my eldest DD who was able to ‘advise’ me on today’s inspiration of ‘Pirates VS Ninjas’.

She advised me on the shape of the ninja’s sword and whether the ninja star was satisfactory. She also told me that pirates carry PARROTS on their shoulder, but the little yellow bird would suffice, just for today. She was suitably impressed by the pirate’s peg legs, but asked where his cutlass was. Seriously – one swordy thing a day is enough for this girly mum. 🙂

Then this girly Mum couldn’t resist having a real Pirates VS Ninjas battle – it was kinda fun. I won’t go into details about who was defeated . . . . 🙂


30 Days of Creativity (Day 24) Lawn Gnome

Lawn Gnomes (aka Garden Gnomes in Australia) are really quite amazing little characters. There is a secret society of gnomes who travel the world and keep blogs not unlike mine. They are photographed in the most amazing locations around the globe. There is even a website dedicated to providing people with tips on how to survive gnome attacks. I’ll never wander the garden alone again.

Anyway, I had a lot of fun creating my little gnome today, I hope you like him to! Don’t forget to leave some love peeps!

30 Days of Creativity (Day 21) Cheese

When I think of cheese I think of mice. Yes, I also think about delicious camembert with crackers, but a papercraft version of those is a bit out of my league!

I made my cute little mousie using punches once again, using up bits of scrap cardstock. I’m really making a dent in my stash! 🙂

Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla, Watercolour, Basic Black

Ink: Daffodil Delight, Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Basic Black

Stamp Sets: For Everything, Scribble Jumbo Wheel

Accessories: Blender Pens, Stampin’ Dimensionals

And here is my cat Lucy who clearly can’t be bothered chasing any mice . . . . she has a very difficult and stressful life!
