Merry Christmas Everyone !!!!
Just thought I would share the Christmas cards I made for my downline "SuziesCrew" girls and Stamp Club girls. I made 21 cards and put a little pressie in each of them (a packet of bakers twine from the new summer mini). Hopefully I have waited long enough now so they have received them in the post....HAHAHA
If not "SURPRISE"... it's coming....LOL

The close-up shows that the M,R and Y, where cut out and popped up. The reindeer has a red glimmer punched nose. I have distressed around the edges of the Lucky limeade card and houndstooth embossed the real red.

I hope all my darling stamp girls have a wonderful Christmas and enjoy being "tied up" in their baker's twine......LOL

Back to rebuilding my termite beaten house.....LOL

Nothing like being BUSY!!!!

No One can believe the S**T that happens in my life......

Hi Everyone... I told you I have been busy lately....Not in a GOOD way.
We found termites in our garage and laundry and have been pulling walls down and fighting the little pests.
You think you do all you can to keep these bloody termites away and they still get thru somehow. I spray every 6 months and have my house checked regularly.....AHHHH!!!!
It's amazing they can do this much damage in no time. The pest man said they have only been here about 2 months at the most. Luck we found them now.......
I have alot of rebuilding and that will take awhile because I am divorced and only have one wage.....but that's fine. I'm really good at painting, plastering and redecorating so I can't wait to start that part of it.
I just can't believe the things that happen in my life.....I have to keep smiling.....They say that "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" But I think someone is trying to make me Superwoman.....LOL

In all of this mess I have been teaching my classes and card making so I will post some creations

Back to tearing down walls

Masking Class

Hi Everyone....
Recently I was inspired by the simple sponging and masking techniques of fellow Stampin'Up! demo PAULA DOBSON from New Zealand. This technique is simple but so elegant and very easy to achieve great results. The stamp girls had alot of fun with this one.

We made these two cards and a few different variations. The ladies used some different colours and stamped images. They all turned out brilliant.

We cut our mask out of clear acetate for the clouds and hills and masked down the edge with giant sticky notes. Using the Stampin'Up! sponges we then sponged lightly with the inks.

Pop on over to Paula's Blogspot for some great card ideas.

Thanks Paula and Thank you for stopping bye....

Pumpkin 2011

I think we are starting a tradition in our family. Pumpkin Carving at Halloween. It is great fun and we light them up outside our house to greet our Trick or Treaters. They look wonderful.
This year Karlee has excelled once again with her pumpkin carving abilities. She is amazing - the time and patience she has when she is crafting. This year she tried a new skill of skinning sections of the pumpkin to give a layered glowing effect.
Excellent for her first try.

Thanks for stopping bye...
