Good afternoon everyone.  Isn't this weather just the best??  BBQ's are the order of the week, so I'm getting ready now for one tonight - trying to disguise chocolate by adding crispy noodles to it!!  Don't think it will work, and they will see straight through my thinly veiled disguise.  Kinda think they know I'm a chocoholic anyway, so why try & hide it?

"A well balanced diet is one bar of chocolate in each hand"!

I've had a bit of fun playing last night & today (while being "pecked to death by THREE ducks" - see previous post) with something I have never used.  Pearl-ex.  I bought this a while back, and have never used it.  It is sooo cooool!   Am really hoping that Stampin' Up! will put it into their new NZ catalogue (that comes out in about 79 days!!!)

Both Way Blossoms 001 Both Way Blossoms 002

The pearl ex doesn't really show up well in the pics, but it is super shiny, and pearly!  I might even break it out for $2 cards one time...

The recipe for these cards is as follows :  Stamp Sets :  Both Way Blossoms (Hostess), All year Cheer I, Simply Sketches

CARD 1 : Cardstock : Sage Shadow, Basic Black, Very Vanilla - Ink : Versamark & Basic Black, Pretty in Pink to colour - Accessories : Pearl Ex, Black EP, Blender Pens, Pretty in Pink Narrow Grosgrain Ribbon

CARD 2 : Cardstock : Cameo Coral, Basic Black, Certainly Celery, Whisper White  -  Ink Versamark & Basic Black, Cameo Coral to colour  -  Accessories : Double Rectangle Punch, Pearl Ex, Black EP, Blender Pens.

I'm going to try and get cards done with all my Hostess Sets, so you can see what you can make with these cool sets, when you earn one at a workshop - WATCH  THIS SPACE!

Well, better go & fill some pastry things with cream!  Enjoy your night.

A special "HELLO" to Glenda - my new internet friend from the USA.  Glenda, it' so cool you check out our blogs in NZ.  Have a fab weekend!

Take care

Sleep.... hmm. How does that work again?? LOL. Hey Trudi - two ducks sleeping at the moment, so have had a lovely time crying while reading through the blog of a cystic fibrosis husband whose wife has just had a 1lb, 6oz baby girl. Check out the link to his blog. It's AMAZING!!
