WE Stamp Wednesday Sketch Challenge #4

Good evening everyone.

While I’m sitting here at the computer, I thought I’d get a head start on Wednesday, and post my WE Stamp Wednesday challenge card here – the reject one!   WHAT a night.  Wrong stamp set to fit into the oval as it should be, then words wouldn’t stamp right, then ovals were all bumpy…  and on it went.  I finally put this card aside in disgust and made a whole new one, that’s just slightly better.  It’ll be over on the WE Stamp blog first thing Wednesday for you to see that I did actually improve – I think!

See – wrong way around, and just not right!   Hope your night has gone better than mine. 

Happy Stamping.

Hi everyone.

Sorry, after an absolutely wonderful evening out with some girlfriends, I forgot to publish the post with all of my stuff for sale, so here it is – finally!   Everything starts at 25% off and the discount goes up from there depending on the condition of the stamp sets.  There is no shipping charges, unless you wish for me to post it to you, then standard postage will apply – approximately $4 for a regular stamp set, or maximum $10 postage if you are buying a whole HEAP of things!  

CLICK HERE to go to my list.

Have a fabulous day!

Season of Joy.

Good morning!

Firstly, I want to say that I have been surprised and incredibly overwhelmed by the emails, phone calls, visits, flowers, gifts and comments since sharing that I have resigned as a demonstrator.  THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!   Your support has really been so very encouraging and positive, and confirms that I have indeed made such great friends over the past couple of years.    I have read each one, but am unable to reply to all of you personally, so please accept my heartfelt thanks!   I’m nearly through sorting my stamp sets, cardstock & stuff for sale so I will post that later today on my blog.  I’ve set myself (with the help of a friend who has told me she’s coming to inspect my office in two weeks) a goal of having my office completely ordered and sorted by the end of August, so that’s been a great project to start getting into, along with getting all organised for tomorrow’s Christmas Class. 
Here is one of the cards we are making tomorrow – it is a CASE of Kim Richards from last year.  This is a card that Kim made as a swap last year, and I really liked the layout, so decided to change colours and DSP, and remake it – why change something that’s so gorgeous huh??

See the clever way Kim made this tag – I thought this was a fabulous idea!   Using the 3/4" circle stuck to the back of the 1 3/8" circle then punching a hole through with the horizontal slot punch.   Very cute – thanks Kim for your fabulous idea!  REALLY looking forward to tomorrow’s class – see you then!

News. Finally.

Hi everyone.  I know you’re all probably thinking I’ve run off to a desert island, but unfortunately the reality is not quite as exotic.  This week I resigned as a Stampin’ Up demonstrator after a very long and difficult few weeks.  I’m not going to go into details here, but instead focus on the positive side of all this – lots more time for coffee, walking, squash, coffee, shopping, coffee and of course stamping!   YAY!   Did I mention coffee??   See, every cloud DOES have a silver lining.  AND, this is the fastest I’ve ever lost weight, and I’ve ALMOST weaned myself off chocolate… I’d better try and fix that!

So, the good news is that I’m having a huge sale of all the stuff I’ve accumulated over the past 2 1/2 years, including lots of brand new sets, all at the best prices you will get anywhere!   These will be available to purchase for about 2 weeks.

I am currently putting together a list that I will put onto my blog later this week for you to check out, otherwise just send me an email if there’s something you are wanting to get before I sell it to someone else!

Now for some stamping – over at the WE Stamp blog we are having our latest WE Stamp Wednesday sketch challenge.  Here’s my card for it – go over and check it out, and even upload your creation if you like.  The next round of WE Stamp is starting on 15th September, and is going to be staying at the AMAZING price of NZ$20 – that’s less than $1 per day! 

WSW Challenge 2
This card was made for my wonderful friends Cherie & Angela – friends like you are hard to find, and I’m absolutely blessed to have two of you!!

Have a fabulous day everyone.
