I emossed the cardstock and the title using the Bug.
The ribbon is from Finishingtouch ideasa nd the flower is from SALT.
I chose red because it is one of my favourite colours and I have always loved red roses.
In Memory of my Loving Father Kenneth Cox whom I miss every day of my life. I cannot believe it has been 9 years since he went to Heaven. He was a wonderful man to so many people and I wish he was still here to laugh and talk to. One day we will meet up again but until then I have my wonderful memories. I love you Father.
Ken died on 27-10-1999.
What a week. Everybody in my family has been sick. Thanks Cooper for bring the bug home.I am so over washing sheets etc.
Yesterday after school I stayed back and did a lesson on making sweets. It was fun but you need patience. Something I do not have. i like it done now but with sweet making you need to wait until it reaches a certain temperature. This is something I will do when I retire. We made Russian Caramels, Honeycomb and Pepermint Lollies.

This card was made by putting a transparency through the Cuttlebug. I also used some Staz -On to highlight the centre of one of the flowers.

Here is how I did the card below and the one that will appear above soon.
1. I put a piece of cardstock through the Cuttlebug.
2. I Gel Mediumed it to the card.
3. I pulled the bottom 2 layers from a serviette and Gel Mediumed it to the textured card.
4. I then used a Versa Cube to swipe ink over the raised parks that are under the serviette.
5. Then decorated it.

Chloe's first time with chocolate and she loved it. The chicken wanted some too. Melanie, Jessica, Chloe and I sat int he backyard each day in the sun and had either afternoon tea or morning tea or lunch. It was so relaxing. The chicken hung around all the time.
The girls both loved the swings. Jessica is being a great big sister by pushing her little sister. I had a lot of fun with the 2 girls at the park and it was delightful to see them enjoying themselves.
After swimming lessons we went to feed the ducks. This photo of Jess is also well posed by her and it looks like the fountain is spraying out of her arm.Pink is Jessica's favourite colour.
This card was done using the Christmas folder and colorcore cardstock by Cordinations. When you sand this cardstock another colour comes through and in this case it was a pinkish colour. I used the Kaiser Stamps for the words.
This card was done with the heart folder and then inked using the Versa Cubes one row at a time. I just swiped the inks over the row of hearts and each row it didn't matter if the colours overlapped in parts. It adds interest to the layers. The indented hearts were kindy glitzed with Crystallina and the big hearts were popped up. This was a fun one to do and my 5 year old grandaughter was intrigued with it and wanted to know how I did it.
