Happy Hanukkah

Hanukkah commences on the 27th November this year and I was asked to create a card for a friend. I gladly accepted. I loved how the colours of the Winter Frost Designer Paper Stack go with the silver embossing and marina mist cardstock.
What a fabulous idea that Stampin' Up came up with. Card front sized Designer Paper. The best part is there are two paper stacks and you get 48 pages of it. One in gorgeous blue hues and in the other in more traditional xmas colours. They both can be found in the current seasonal catalogue. There are many terrific products in the seasonal catalogue. Make sure you click on the link and check them out. Hope you like my card!

Loving the 2013-2014 In-Colours

There are just so many things that I love about Stampin' Up but the one that I want to talk about today is the wonderful way that all the products co-ordinate. Not only do you have the range of products in the same colour you have family groups of colours that co-ordinate so well with each other. This card that I am going to show you demonstrates this in the new In-Colours in the current catalogue.This card has been cased from a U.S. demonstrator who received it in a card swap so the original creator is not known. I really love the use of many embossing folders as well as the fabulous use of one of the most versatile stamp set Papillion Potpurri.

Well Halloween has come and gone for another year. Quite uneventful really. Here in Australia it is hit and miss who celebrates Halloween. I got excited as there are alot of children in my street. Bought lollies ready for the onslaught of excited children and would you believe it not one single door knock! Anyway in the spirit of things I created a halloween card for a friend who I know loves all things black, creepy and spooky. She also loves cats. So quite a fitting card I hope. I really love the colour combo.

Wow a lot has happened in 3 months!

Well again it has taken me 3 months to get back to my blog. It has been an eventful 3 months though. I celebrated my daughter's 2nd birthday, worked full time, went on holidays and experienced what it was like to live in an area that was threatened by one of the bushfires that NSW has endured over the past 3 weeks. Just want to share with you a beautiful photo that my husband took 2 weeks on after the fires.

Loving Secret Garden!

Did you see the Secret Garden bundle that was in the seasonal catalogue that is ending today? Don't worry I am excited to announce that the Secret Garden stampset and the Secret Garden framelits will be continued in the 2013-2014 catalogue. That is really exciting for me as I really love this set. There is so much to do with the gorgeous flowers that are in this set. I found a card which I loved so much that I had to case it. Thanks Amy O'Neill!! I am loving the colour combination-Midnight Muse, Baja Breeze and Calypso Coral and Pink Pirouette. Isn't it gorgeous?

So I have been terrible at this blogging thing.

Well with all best intentions to have a regular blog it has proven to be a little more difficult then expected. I thought I had better get my butt into gear again.
Over the past month I have celebrated my husband's birthday and I am busily planning my daughter's 2nd birthday. So busy and so exciting!!!! Thought I would share the card that I made for my hubby. I was inspired by a father's day card using same colours and squares and modified it for a male birthday.

My First Blog Post

Hi there! I am very excited about my new blog and I hope you enjoy seeing my creations and share a little bit of my life.Thanks a lot to my upline Louise Sharp for her help to get the blog started and her inspiration. 
Well I am very excited for the launch of the new Stampin' Up catalogue which will be available from July 1st, 2013. It has so much great new stuff in it.
Here is a sample of some great things ahead. Designed by Louise and made by me on our recent fabulous team night. It was so much fun! I even managed to win myself a card tree from the Stampin' Up Convention that was held just recently in Brisbane. ( See it the picture below ).
Thanks for stopping by and reading my first post!!
