Did I mention I'm in Sydney? We are having a lovely week here with the kids. My clever husband got an amazing deal on a three bed, 2 bath serviced apartment in the heart of the city! Yesterday we walked around Darling Harbour and Chinatown, and Paddy's Markets. Today we will probably go to the zoo.
Have a great week! I may pop back in with holiday snaps, but we shall see.

pictures to sell at the Fete next month. I had some core'dinations
cardstock in my stash from 2 years ago (it feels good not to be
wasteful ) and I used some old Cuttlebug embossing folders in my Big
Shot to emboss them. I then used my sanding block to distress the
cardstock and highlight the design. Finally I punched put hearts with
my gorgeous big heart punch (SU!) and arranged them on whisper white
cardstock and adhered them with dimensionals. We did lots of
different frames, butterflies and stars, and Renee hand cut

I will be running this class again tomorrow night if any one is
interested and I still have a few spaces left.
I hope you enjoyed these!

in crystal effects to look like glass. Fun! Crystal effects doesn't
take long to dry. I thought the circles in the background looked like
condensation rings from a cold mug of beer! That stamp is from Circle
while waiting in the pick up line for the girls we carpool with, so I
will post each card seperately ( sorry about that!).
I used the same colour scheme of Not Quite Navy, Tangerine Tango and
Kiwi Kiss for all the cards and I must say I love this combo!
This one also uses the star wheel and you'll notice the large star
punch coordinates perfectly with it.

Clearly I have untapped psychic powers.
So the moral of the story is: Don't wait to order your reinkers or cardstock in your favourite retiring colours!
Of course, there will be lots of NEW yummy colours to choose from in September, and I must admit I'm getting excited about seeing them in real life!
Oops better dash - school run, etc.

I have been meaning to post pictures of the gorgeous hand made cards I received for my birthday (over a week ago now!), so here they are, finally:
