World Card Making Day

I have just finished designing the last card for my fundraiser card making day I am doing on Saturday 3rd October which is World Card Making day. It is being held at Lesmurdie Baptist Church and we are fundraising for this years mission project which is building some accommodation for the refugees on the Thai/ Burma border. I thought I would give you a peek at my final card and maybe if you are in the area and have nothing to do on world card making day you are welcome to come and join us. It will be $50 for the day with a hot lunch and morning and afternoon tea included with a Christmas stamp a stack of 2 cards 5 of each and then 6 other cards. A total of 16 cards. Email me if you would like to come.
This is the card I designed. I have used Boatloads of Love and then added the lighthouse from Uncharted Territory and then some items from Just Beachy. I had fun making this stair step card.

Non Christmas Stamp Set Non Christmas Colours

I needed to come up with a card using non Christmas colours and a non Christmas stamp set for a get together I had today with friends. I got the idea of using these stamp sets from someone from a group I am on. Sorry I cant remember your name. Anyway the colours I chose are Taken with Teal and Elegant Eggplant. The stamp sets are Brocade Basics and Boho Backgrounds. We didnt end up making the card today as we were too busy making other lovely cards, but I didnt mind. I had a great day and am blessed to have such wonderful friends to share ideas with.

Emily's Card

Emily needed a card for a friend so she made this card for her. She doesn't make cards when I am around and creates her own designs. Isn't she clever. I love the way she has done the squares down the bottom. I haven't taught her how to prick the holes for the brads so she did bend her card a little while adding her brads but I think she has done a great card. One day we might even sit and make cards together.

Wild about You

I bought Wild about You a couple of months ago and hadn't got to use it, so I decided to make a baby card with it. I made the pink one while stamping with a friend and then when I taught it at my last 5 card day I gave the option of making it blue or pink. I think they look great. I hadn't used my spiral punch much either so wanted to use it as well. I used the Polka Dot background as well.

Back from Down South

hi there, i think I forgot to tell you I would be away down south for the week, but anyway here I am back again. I had a lovely time with my family and stayed with my sister Sue so that we could plan our crafts for our trip to Wiluna later this month. We are going up there to teach the kids crafts for the first week of the school holidays. We have planned all the different crafts and made samples and ordered what we needed.
Also while down in Manjimup my sister Barbie had her 50th birthday and we all went out for dinner on Saturday for her party. It was great to get together and help celebrate her day.
I also wanted to show you the card I made her. This is a star card that my good friend Jennie taught me to make. I basically cased her card with a few personal touches of my own. I'm really pleased with the end result and Barbie liked it too so that was the main objective.

To finish off I would like to show you this photo of me with my 3 lovely sisters. I am so lucky to have family that are so wonderful. Spending time with them has been just what I needed.
