Tag time

I have a few gift tags to show you over the next few days. You know how I love products that coordinate? Well, swoon, Two Tags die (for the Big Shot) is another one! See how the thin tag is made to work with the scallop circle punch? Love it! The stamps I've used here are old favorites: Punch Pals, and Perfect Punches. In the second photo you see the other tag this die makes - totally cute and the work of moments.

Child's Play!

Look at the gorgeous card my sweet daughter (Thing 1 as she is affectionately known) made for her friend! I am totally going to copy it and pretend I made it! She stamped the recycled brown wrapping paper too - that's my girl!

Sigh.  I really did think I'd be able to cram 2-3 classes into this month, maybe a workshop too?  And my Christmas cards would of course all be ready to send by now.  Teacher Presents would be wrapped and ready to go.

Of course what really happened - the Year 6 Musical (Opening Night is tomorrow night!); the end of year music concert at two different schools, I got a chest infection, half the kids had a virus, a fencing competition, Stampin Up Regional Training,  the Year 3 Planetarium Excursion, and a little thing called Reality, or "What Were You Thinking?"

I'll be back when I can.

More Christmas fun!

I am sure I didn't show you these cards already...
But if I did, I'm sorry! I will come back and edit - I am writing this on my iPad, waiting at the doctor's surgery.
This card uses the Ovals die, Big Shot (seen this month's promotion yet? Whoops, haven't put it on the blog yet!), the Pennant Parade stamp set and matching punch) and Four the Holidays stamp set.
this is one I CASE'D from the current Idea Book and Catalogue. Love that glass glitter!
And finally, one made with an alphabet on my wish list - I borrowed this stamp set from the lovely Manda.
What else to tell you? Since my last post we've had my eldest son's 9th birthday party with a Halloween theme:
My seven year old did her first school assignment (with help from Mummy's Big Shot) on penguins:
The kids and I tried out some of the settings on my SLR camera:
And my Mum, Aunt, Sister and I made 6 aprons, 6 Lederhosen, and 12 Chinese Dancer costumes for my eleven year old's school musical. Well, they did the sewing; my involvement was multiple trips to Spotlight to buy more fabric, cutting out, and making sandwiches and cups of tea.
