Happy Milestone!!!!!!

$100,000 in SALES!

In April I achieved my first Milestone in Stampin'Up!......I reached $100,000 in sales. I joined Stampin'Up! in November 2006 and it has taken 5 1/2 years to reach this sales figure.
I am a hobby demo and work fulltime but share my passion with my wonderful craft ladies (lots started as customers) but they are all now my dearest friends.

I have sooo much fun in the Stamp Clubs. These ladies make my heart sing....their company is truly great for my soul.....
We laugh, cry, share the good times and sometimes complain about the world....LOL
We all say it's cheaper than therapy and much more beneficial.

These gorgeous presents where from two of my craft ladies, Sanchia and Megan, as a wonderful surprise for my milestone....
The tissue cover, tea bag holder and water bottle and cover will be accompanying me to Canberra soon. All with beautiful matching card and gift tag.

Sanchia and Megan know me too well...... I LOVE the Timeless Portrait DSP and Fabric.

So I have been extra spoilt in April......

Happy Birthday to me.....

I know it's a bit late but.......

April 14 was my birthday....... and I was spoilt by my beautiful girls, family and friends. This is a very small share of the goodies I recieved.  Just thought I would show you some of the beautiful handmade cards and gifts.

My darling daughters, Karlee and Allanna gave my a beautiful new handbag and wallet and then Mum, Dad and the girls took me out for pancakes for birthday breakfast......YUMM

I wish to thank everyone for making my birthday very special....Lots of cake and hugs.... I still have some breakfast and lunch dates to catch up on....It's great to be loved!!

April was truly a very BUSY month.....

Just loved this one......

I just loved this card sooooo much I had to case it.......

I changed up the front of the card but kept the centre basically the same.....different greeting

Go to Lisa Young's Pop Up Birthday Card for a fantastic tutorial on how to make this card.
Thank you Lisa for sharing this card and your beautiful inspiration.

Back to some stamping!!!!

Sorry I have been missing in action over the last 6 weeks......


I have been stamping along the way, just not sharing it with the blogging world.

My upline Robyn Lawton came for a stamping visit and bought along the 'Zoo Review' stamp I don't have.....LOL

We made this cool birthday card and gift card holder.

Rich Razzleberry and Crumb Cake make up my card....Sounds more like baking than stamping....LOL
I have fallen in love with the new Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue and all it has to offer......
One of my favourites is the Mixed Bunch and Blossom Punch.

In last months Stamp Clubs we made this little box and gift card set, using the Mixed Bunch stamp and Blossom Punch and the Cheerful Treat Hostess Paper.

The box is made up of 4 Scallop Envelope dies and then a partition in the centre for the handle. Four little 3" x 3" note cards and 4 mini square envelopes. All the stamp girls loved making this great little gift.

And in the meantime I have been 'madly' making my swaps for the Stampin'Up! convention in Canberra on May 31 - June 2......I'm trying to make 120 this year because there are over 450 people attending....It will be HUGE!!!!!

Back to the Bunker......

Allanna's Graduation


Just a Very Proud Mother Moment.......

Saturday 12 May 2012 was Allanna's Graduation Day from University of Southern Queensland - Springfield Campus. She graduated with a Bachelor of Education - Primary School.
Allanna finished her degree in November 2011 but it takes awhile for the Graduation Ceremony. It was held at the Ipswich Civic Centre. She got to march up the Ipswich Mall wearing her gown and cap with 200 other graduates of USQ.

She has been teaching Year 3 at Bundamba State School since the start of this year.

Karlee and I are very proud of her achievements.

Suzie xoxo
