Summer by the Sea

I adore this card I made the other day. I really don't use this set as much as I should, it also has one of my fav sets embossed in SU copper in the background Stem Silhouettes.
This card will find a new home at one of my good friends who's birthday is 3 days before mine.

Discontinued list

Just letting you know (if you don't already) that we now have the list of stamp sets that you will no longer be able to purchase after 1st April.
If you haven't seen this list and want to know (in case one of your wish list stamp sets are on it), flick me an email, or give me a ring and I will send you out a list.

Bundle of Joy

Yes, I managed to survive Bee's room, it didn't take as long as I expected, mind you I did talk hubby and oldest daughter into helping me!!. Soooo.... I did get time to finish off a card I started on Friday. A friend of mine is due to have her baby soon, I'm convinced she's having a boy.. but we will see!!!, I have classes in 20 mins so better go get ready.

Stem Silhouettes

Well hello... it seems like it has been ages since I last posted... I have just feed hubby and kids lunch, thought I would quickly post a new card before I enter the black abyss called "Bailee's room".... Yes it is that clogged up with toys, that it is time for a clean up.. and I don't imagine that I will be out in time to make any cards today... or for that fact... even tomorrow...

All Mixed Up - take two!!

Two down one to go..... Here in Hawera we have had 4 seasons in one day about four times over. So hubby, and kids all picked out a dvd each.... movie night tonight, I may do some cards, then again I may just blob.

For those readers in NZ... I have just been down to see the two homes that are on Mitre 10 Dream Home... I was bitterly disappointed in them both, not my cup of tea!!

All Mixed Up

I have never really taken a shine to this stamp set... so I took it along to work (Oh my gosh... there goes that word again!!!) and whipped up this card.... in my lunch break of course!!!
In fact I have two more cards to upload from this set... watch this space!

Not long now for the new SU 2008/2009 Catty!

Enchante - DS Paper

I have had a (new) boring scanky plastic box that I call my address box... I have had this for some time and put all my SU, class, and SBS6 contacts in it... Well it was time to give it a face lift... one day I will get a decent camera that will give my art work some credit!!!
I used SU DS paper - Enchante and stamps - French Flair, Carte Postale, and Stem Silhouettes all out of the Summer Mini.... One project down and on to my next!!!

Merci - quick card

I have a stack of Stampin Up DS Paper sitting in my craft room that I hardly touch... so I made it my personal mission to at least try a card with some before my next class starts. I like the way it turned out.

Wedding favours

OK, so this is the second half day I have spent with the bride to be... Suzanne and her friends. I had a great time, the whole atmosphere was very relaxing, and whats even better... she brings lunch and wine!!!
I did have a minor panic attack when I thought the Chocolate Chip SU card stock wasn't going to turn up on time for today, but thankfully Sharlene from NP helped out...Phew!!!! Thanks Sharlene!
Will post weddings Part two tomorrow!
