Playful Petals - Mother's day

Thought I'd better hurry up and make some mother's day cards.... I used the mojo monday template from last week as the guide for the placement on these cards... very useful, I must do these more often....

Lost Budgie! Come home Kiwi!

Well, today is a very sad day. I got a call from my mum late this morning to say Kiwi, my budgie, took off out the backdoor...
Of course I raced home to try to find him... Well can you see him in the first photo? Spot the budgie!
I used a zoom on the second photo...
So he was in the neighbours very big tree... he wouldn't come down... then he took off to NP Boys High School... or course I chased after him.. found him i a tree over there but still wouldn't come down... then back to the neighbours tree, then down the street again..
I gave up once he took off again and went back to work the second time... very tiring.
Rushed home at the end of the day, walked around the neighbourhood and put flyers in the letter boxes... kept calling him and ringin his bell... I'm sure by now I look like a looney on the loose!
I heard him down the road but couldn't see him... kept calling and he followed me home, by the time I got to the back yard again he was up in the tree... at least I took photos this time and doesn't he look great in the tree!!!!
I stayed out til dark trying to get him down but he wouldn't come, I couldn't even bribe him with his favourite foods...

Sadly he is in for a very cold night out there in the big wild world, alone. He will be getting hungry by now too.. but it's dark and he won't fly in the dark.

I hope he survives the night and comes home in the morning....

If you make any cards in the next day or so make sure you put birds on them, it could be a good omen!

Puddle - favourite of the night

This is my favourite creation from last night.. The puddle stamp was in the bulklot from trademe... The people are a cheap stamp, which I have had since I started stampin, from spotlight... The clouds were inspired by Tracey, she has some fab cards on her blog. She likes puff paint... Thanks Tracey, I love puff paint too now!

Frogs with lilly pad

This is another creation started last night but finished off tonight....

I bought the Stampin Up Lilly pad wheel on trademe recently and picked up from a lovey lady, Tracey. She is right into stampin up and I was impressed with her creations on her blog

When I met her she mentioned how she love puff paint. Well of course I had never heard of it before and after checking out some of her creations, I went out and bought some to try... I hope you can see the blue puff paint on the card above...

I like it a lot more than the flowersoft stuff I bought! Must sell that on trademe....
