Thank you!




 A big thank you for everyone who visited my blog during the Blog Hop, and an especially big thank you to those who left some comment love.  I was blown away by the talent of the ESAD-SU team, well done to everyone!

I hope those of you who have little ones starting school this week have a good week.  I have two new starters - my eldest, starting a new Middle school, and my third, starting Prep.  After a crazy morning involving locksmiths and my fantastic Dad coming to my rescue, we all got to where we were supposed to be in time today!  Phew!  Must say it is awfully quiet here with just my baby and me rattling around until school pickup!


Here's another card I made with the SAB set I was able to pre-order called Happy Moments.  I based the card on one Bec O'Gorman made recently, I've linked to it HERE.  Mine is a much simpler version - or hers is a "stepped up" version, if you will!

I like the subtle tone on tone effect of the flowers stamped randomly with Sahara Sand ink on Kraft cardstock, and the crisp white border bringing in your focus to the main image, on white, mounted on dimensionals on a white frame.  The sentiment is from the same set.

I'm hoping I can have a play in the Craft Lair soon so I can enter a few of the challenges around the blogs recently; but if I don't, well, there's always next month!

I'll also leave you with some pictures of the project we'll be doing in classes in February - the Pun Fun Class, designed by the ever-fabulous Andrea Walford.    It's a very cute and clever card folder with four cards and envelopes in it!


So let me know if you would like to learn how to make this!  

I expect places to fill up quickly, so contact me ASAP to reserve your spot.  It will cost $25, you will need to bring your own basic tools, including adhesive.  Check my Stampin' Up! Website for further details.  I'm also running a Begginer's Course shortly so make sure you contact me for that too!
