I'm home!

Hello to you all!  I'm back home again (actually got home Thursday night) but still not on top of anything!   Have had the most wonderful time with Angela and her team in Waiuku ("Hi" girls!) and also with Angela's amazing family.  Her 6 year old son just stole my heart, and I would have brought him home with me, but I kinda know that Angela and Neil would miss him so much.  What a beautiful boy you have - thanks for sharing him with me!!   (And your other two children are also just delightful!)  My boys all missed me, but I am impressed how my DH did while I was away!   

Anyway, enough rambling - thought I'd quickly post two of the cards that we made today at the Christmas Stamp-A-Stack.   The ladies did so well making 16 cards in record time.  I kept the cards really really simple, so that it staying enjoyable, and didn't feel like a chore making 4 of each card.  I think I achieved that goal!  





RECIPE : Stamp Sets : Crazy For Christmas, Short & Sweet.  Cardstock/Ink : Sahara Sand, Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Whisper White.  Accessories : Crimper, Double Stitched Ribbon, 3/4" & 1/2" circle punches.








This card was inspired by Jayne Mercer - another blog that I love!  RECIPE : Stamp Sets : Hung Up On The Holidays, Occasional Greetings.  Cardstock/Ink : Bravo Burgandy, Mellow Moss, Whisper White.  Accessories : Burgandy Organza Ribbon (retired), Versamark, Gold EP & Embossing Buddy of course!


This is another very simple card we made today.  It was inspired by a card made by the lovely Angela Corbett, who very kindly loaned me one to take home & CASE.  This is the really basic version, ideal for classes such as this one.  Tomorrow, I'll post the glammed-up version, and show you how simple it is to make something quite simple into something really amazing!   I'm off to bed - yes, before midnight, as my stamping started at 4.00am today when I couldn't sleep....  YES - I'M ADDICTED!

Have a great night

This is a cool card. Angela's inspiration was from a demo swap at the Waikato regionals. The original creator is Leanne Marsters - her card can be seen on my blog. Great fold.
