Simply sent card kits......

Did you enter the competition to win a Simply Sent Card Kit from Stampin' Up? Well I am very excited to announce that someone who entered via link from my blog won one! It was my mum! (No, it wasn't rigged!)
Congratulations Mum! Have fun creating loads of gorgeous cards ~ I know that you will have a ball.
I will get some pictures of her creations and post them here once she is done (won't I mum?)

World Card Making Day

I bet you didn't even know there was such a thing, did you? Well you can be forgiven; last year was the first year. World Card Making Day began in 2006 as National Card Making Day. It was founded by Paper Crafts magazine in an effort to bring card makers together at the busiest card-making season of the year.

World Card Making Day is especially for card makers around the world to:

- Celebrate the creativity of handmade cards and the personal connection that they create between friends and family,
- Kick off (and get a head start on) your Christmas card making. You know that if you don't start now, suddenly it will be December and there will be no time left to make your cards.

Why not celebrate World Card Making Day by holding a Stamp-a-Stack? Invite some friends over and make 10 cards (5 each of 2 designs) with a prepared kit that contains pre-cut papers, embellishments, glue and envelopes. All for $18. As World Card Making Day is in October, we shall celebrate all month long & I will have a special treat for you, as the hostess, if you book your Stamp-a-Stack anytime in October.

Contact me to book your Stamp-a-Stack today!

I've been busy

I had some time to stamp on the weekend and have been playing with some of the new stamp sets. Here's a few pictures from the Polka Dots & Paisley set. I really love this set, you can get a different feel depending on what colours you use. I had to use some glitter on one of these ~ you can just about see it in the picture if you look closely......

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket" I've received another RAK ~ I was blown away last week when a grogeous card arrived in the mail. It was from the lovely Claire Daly, just to wish me well and to let me know that she was thinking of me & my dodgy back. It's great to come home to mail that isn't a bill! As much as I would love to show it to you, photobucket keeps loading it upside down, which does not show it off to it's best advantage! When I can get that sorted out, I shall post it here.

I went to a workshop at Fleurie's to make this gorgeous little board book ~ it was a lovely small group and we had a ball. Loads of sanding and cutting and chatting! This is my book. I think I need some more embellishments!

I have some more cards to show, but as photobucket isn't cooperating today, I'll leave them for another day. See you soon!
