Cloud 9 February 2013 Blog Hop

It has certainly been an eventful few weeks around South East Queensland.  The predicted rain event that I mentioned in my previous post did occur, dropping approx. 30cm (12 inches) of rain in a little over 24 hours.  Couple that with gale force winds and you have a recipe for flooding.  The creek at the back of us did rise quickly, but stayed well clear of the house.  But we weren't quite prepared for losing power for 3 days in very warm humid conditions.  We are definitely having some extreme weather events around the globe at the moment.
Add to this a delayed start to school and it has been a very mixed up time.  I am hoping that as school enters its second full week, a routine of sorts is starting to form.  I know the kids are quite tired as the timetable and activities are quite different in Grade 5 and that has taken some getting used to.  So I have absent from the blog, enforced initially, but we had a bit more time to relax this weekend (last weekend was just full of cleaning).  

So to this wonderful photo. I have picked out the Kraft, hearts and who can't resist the pink stripes.

What you need
Cardstock - PTI Kraft, Pure Poppy
Patterned paper - SU Brights Collection
Stamps - Wplus9 A pocketful - Valentine, Magical Moments
Ink - Versafine Onyx Black;  Versamark
Embossing Powder - Superior Filigree
Dies - PTI Hearts
Punches - Martha Stewart, SU
Glossy Accents
Corner Rounder - We R Memory Keepers

Edited to Add:  had I looked more closely at my addictive challenge blog list I would have noticed that this card also qualifies for the Pinspired challenge - gotta love pink and red.

  I have had the Magical Moments stamp set on my desk for a while, a good friend from work left fairly suddenly as her husband accepted a job in Melbourne.  She is of Indian descent and is smitten with peacocks.


  1. Glad to hear your family and home were safe from all the nasties going on up your way recently. It's been a terrible time all over. Not much fun having no power though :( poor you.

    Love both of these cards - that peacock is divine.

  2. Love those filigree squares! So pretty Cassandra!

  3. These are delightful project Cassandra. I really like the fun fold of your peacock clever!

  4. Glad to hear you didn't suffer any damage! We've had a big winter storm with lots of beautiful snow. Luckily, we had no power outage though thousands east of us did. I love the inspiration piece & your interpretation! The peacock card is simply stunning!

  5. Cassandra, I love the embossed squares and the scalloped striped borders! Sorry to read that you lost power...he had a few stretches of that last year - no fun at all! I hope the weather gets better for you soon!
