Set Sail - Cased cards

I needed a technique for a class today and because I have been going a bit stale in the SU department I cased these two cards from Lori on Splitcoast Stampers. I did change the Bronco stamp she used and used Set Sail instead - 3 days to go from new catty orders... yeeha!!

5 Minute Cards

Here are a couple 5 minute cards I whipped up. Not SU I know.... just waiting to order my big stash then the drought will be over.!!!! Although in my defense the background on both cards is from Scribble This set... one of my favorite sets of all time

My little monkey

This is one of the scrapbook pages I done while away with Lou... ... Big thanks to Lou for making me add a space to do my writing in..(which I hate doing, hence why it's still blank!!) I love these photos... they are Bailee's personality to a tee.

countdown is on... 4 days till we can order from new catty

Bundle of Joy

I know I haven't posted for a few days... well not SU cards anyway! The guilts were getting to me.. so here is a couple cards that I put together (rather fastley ... if that is even a word!). Not the best of photos, I also have velum over the stamped image, that doesnt help... but as always (and you hear this in most blogs) it looks great in real life!

My Easter weekend away.... awesome, although I am slightly jaded now. Thursday night had a wonderful friend who never stops talking from Canada come and stay (sorry Mary) late night. Friday met up with Lou in Wanganui, stamped and scrapbooked another late night but well worth it... would have had more sleep if the idoits next door at motel didnt party. Saturday - stayed with a long time friend Janine (check out eyephoto at side of blog), watched some chick flicks another late night!!! And last but not least.. Sunday and Monday night... hubby on night shift... don't sleep well when he's not here... hence I am off to bed very soon!!

If you are still reading this after my novel... good on ya mate!!!! Oh god now I'm sounding Australian.. (Sorry Melanie SBS6)

Last High Hopes

Thought I would quickly load this on blog before I take off out the door... Bailee and I are off on a road trip and meeting SU Demo Lou half way (well ... she does have a little further than me to drive!!). We are staying the night in Wanganui...

Agenda for this afternoon / night... stamp... drawl over new catty... go out for tea.... stamp... have some bubbles..... (thought to myself... mmm chocolate would be good too!!)... oh and did I mention stamp!!!!.

Since I can't take my whole craft room, I will be limited to what I can do... but I promise to share what goodies I make.

Have a great Easter weekend.

High Hopes

Now, before my readers go into shock... yes I know that I have an exclusive SU blog.... but... my wonderful friend Lou saved me from boredom and sent me some stamped off cute High Hopes stamps. I have seen these on other SBS6 sister blogs and look great ...soooo I thought I would give it a crack and branch outside SU... just for a couple days until I get my new catty and order new SU stamp sets!!! I promise!!!!

My 8yr daughter also had a play... So for this afternoon I was in my craft room (with earplugs) .. 8yr old was in hers stamping...(music blasting) and 5yr old was in her room not stamping... just being louder...(music blasting in competition trying to get one up on her 8yr old sister... oh the harmony of it all..... poor neighbours!! Did I mention that hubby was trying to sleep... he has night shift tonight!

Floral Background stamp

This would have to be one of my first flops!!! I had an idea, only had about 5 mins to do it... and this is the result!!! See I do have bad stamping days!!! LOL.
The general idea of stamping and embossing in copper was good, but the colors just don't do it for me.
On a brighter note... my great friend Lou is sending down some stamped images of stamps I haven't got... my poor mailman... stalker comes to mind....waiting for them to arrive!!!
