SU! Friends narrow

Hey there....how are you today?

I hope you've enjoyed a beautiful Saturday:-)

I've had a lovely day....tripping down to Coolangatta for a sweet crafty get together with gorgeous crafty friends....Shazz Pratten, owner of  The Scrap Lounge, Ruthy Clarke - the gorgeous SU! Demonstrator, Ruth's SIL Julie and Jody, the owner of Stick and Giggle. It was lovely to catch up!

It is a loooong time since I have been to a Stampin' Up! party....since I was a demo myself 2 years ago actually.....so I enjoyed playing around with the gorgeous goodies Ruthy had organised for us. We created this beautiful card - thanks Ruthy -

Cards for Aussie Cards for Sale

Sharing in your sorrow narrow 

Hey there - how are you today?

My heart goes out to you if you have family or friends who have been affected by the devastating earthquake in Christchurch, NZ. What is happening to our world of late....so much sadness and suffering :(

Alicia at Aussie Cards for Sale asked us for Sympathy and Get Well Cards to stock the store so I have created one of each over the last couple of nights.

The first uses my new birthday stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps - I have long admired their vintage label sets and dropped a few hints for my recent birthday - yaaaaay! They took a week to arrive from the UK - not bad huh - and postage was free....double yaaaay!

Sharing in your sorrow close up 

I used Prima's Annalee paper pad and my sweet little My Favourite Things mini rolled roses die with pink felt. Stamp Set is SU!'s Thoughts and Prayers.

Sharing in your sorrow 

The next Get Well card uses the Annalee papers again and a MS Around the Page Wildfowers punch set.

Well, I am off to lunch with friends today...I know! -aren't I the lucky one mid week :-))

I hope you too have a lovely hump day....thanks for visiting.

See you again soon.

CAS Notecards - Verve and CR84FN

Verve Week 3 and CR84FN narrow 

Hey there...how was your day?

Great day here....my day "off" is always a great day I have to say:-))

I had time for some creative play...first off I needed to restock my note cards...I go through a lot of these throughout the year....popping them in with cards I make, mail I send....that sort of thing. So I kept these clean and simple - very unlike me but they'll serve their purpose very well....

Simple Note Cards 
Stamps are from PTI's Turning A New Leaf set, Mega Mixed Messages and SU!'s Sweet Little Sentiments and Really Retro sets.

Next I have my card for Verve's Feb Week 3 Sketch....which looks like this....

VLVFeb11Week3Sketch 
I combined the sketch with the latest colours over at Mona's Create4Fun Colour Challenge...

CR84FN15 Graphic ...bright and beautiful aren't they:-)

So here's my card....
