Always time to stamp.

As you will appreciate we are a bit busy here but still stamping.

This is a shameless case from Tina Dyck? I loved it and had to have a go. Sorry for rubbish photo.

Our Visas Are Through

It is official, we are moving to Canada and we are sooo excited that the wait is finally over.   Thanks to everyone who has put up with my moaning and sighing during the long long wait.

Don't worry I am still available here to take orders for the next month and then I will had you over to my very capable downline who I am sure will look after you very very well.   I will still be posting and stamping as much as I can before most of my stash goes into storage for the move and then I will be back showcasing some of my new creations from over the pond.  Keep stampin and if you have any orders I may well have a virtual party in the next week or so if I have time.

If anyone is interested in buying some of my used stamp sets (and some not used promotional goods) I will be selling them them next month in an open table top sale at my house.  If you are interested please e-mai me so I have an idea of numbers and if it is worth doing.  Thanks.

Thank You Teacher 2

This is exactly the same card but with Greenhouse Gala DSP, another one of my favourite patterns.  I could use this forever but it seems it may be retired this year so order it while you can.   I really really enjoyed making these cards and just wish I know who to thank for the idea.

On a personal note my boys attended their primary school for the last time yesterday.  It was really sad to say goodbye as it is such a great school, they have grown and learned so much while they were there and have some truly wonderful friends.  I am also very sad as some of the mums are great friends of mine too and, while I will keep in touch during the holidays, it is not the same as seeing everyone every day.   

Luckily the sad day was topped of with Harry Potter in 3D and a nice meal out where everyone was in a good mood and had a great evening out (ok I may have had a couple of Margaritas ) .

Have a great weekend.

Thank You Teacher

This is a case and cannot find where it is from so snaps to the original creator. I made another version which I will post tomorrow.

I really love these simple layouts. The DSP is one of my very favourites.

Hope you like.

PS my blog is having problems so please bear with me.

New Nails

Just had to share this great new (to me) technique.  You use Konad Stamping system to stamp your nails, YES I AM STAMPING MY BODY NOW - it had to happen eventually.

I love the effect and am waiting for some other colour nail varnishes to come it to try.

Hope you like

Happy Birthday Dad

Made this for my Dad with thanks to Niki for the loan on a supply. Hope he liked it. It has a lot of features I like in it like texture from the embossing plate and the lovely label punch plus delicious Marina mist ribbon for that splash of colour.

Here is a really quick and effective card.

This uses a background stamp and the large flower punch.

It's in cards like these that you really appreciate the brilliant co-ordination of Stampin' Up! Colours.

I posted another pic of this card above but must have been lost somewhere. Will update later. Far too distracted with the new catalogue in the US. Can't wait to get my hands on some of that delicious stash. In the meantime I have some sets as yet unused so I will have to force myself to stamp some more lol.

Will past card ASAP x
