Spring is here.....

Well I Saturday I ventured out with Mum to a Stampin Up Spring Catalogue Launch, hosted by a lovely friend of mine, and we managed to make two cards, and I won one of the lucky door prize....a new pen "Lucky Limeade"....which I love this colour, now to save up and get the ink also.

Here are the two cards I made that afternoon.

Bit heavy handed on the star on this card, but will fix later with some glitter.  I like to decorate the envelope also gives it a personal touch.

Laying Low

What I made today....

Today I went to a lovely friend's house, she is a Stampin Up Demonstrator.  We made two cards today, I really enjoyed myself and look forward to the next class.  Here are the two cards I made.  The first is a card made to look like a wallet, so clever, and you can use it for any occasion maybe popping in a gift card in the credit card section.  Also was my first time embossing anything!!!   The second card I changed to suit myself from her original design.

Mail from Germany!!!

My lovely mate Smilie from Germany sent me a package, it was choc-a-block full.  Thank you for each little individual package for each member of the family.  I love the handmade 'Lillies' hairclips, us girls love them.  The boys love the badges you made also.  The chocolate was eaten for breakfast by the kids (as the parcel was delivered early this morn), I have yet to savour mine with a cuppa later tonight, Hubby will probably snort his down in two seconds flat.

Also love the little fairy people, the stamped birdies, and the two beautiful cards you made.  We were way spoilt by Smilie.  Here is a couple of pics

Countdown is on!!!

The countdown is on till our next family holiday.  We are off to Cairns for Hubby's 40th Birthday, and youngest son's 11th Birthday.  Along for the ride will be my parents.  What to do! What to do!.......been surfing the web on what to do when we are up there, at this point there is no itinerary, we are just playing it by ear.

So far, we are thinking (nothing in concrete yet), maybe whale watching, breakfast with the lions at the Safari Park, up to Kuranda , visit the butterfly sanctuary, go to Port Douglas, go to the Daintree, maybe see a croc or two......anyways thats whats floating round the place at the moment, and not necessarily in that order.

After being sick, and the kids also last school holidays, Im definitely looking forward to the next ones......
