For The Happy Couple

Hello to you.
Recently, I made this card for friends who are visiting from Sweden.
Whilst in Australia they annouced they are getting Engaged so natually I made them a card.
I had fun making these cute owls and my inspiration came from our up and coming mini catalogue which is still under wraps for a little while.(The inspiration is for the background only)

The colours used were Not Quite Navy, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla. The 2 Step Owl punch made up the bow in the Mrs Owls hair. The soon to be Mr and Mrs loved their card and it was nice to actually see them open it.
Sorry it'd only short and sweet today.
Be sure to stop by soon as a very special project will be placed on my blog soon.
Thanks for stopping by.

Tri Fold Birthday Card

I wanted to show you a male birthday card for a change. I don't do them very often and need some practise.
So I took a shot at a Tri Fold card because to me that is nice and easy.

I used a valcro dot to keep it closed.
The colours I used were Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Basic Black and Peach Parfait.The stamp is Happy Moments from last years Sale-a-bration and then just coloured them in with markers.
I hope you like it.

A Little Birdy Told Me

Hi everyone.

Well I have been away for a while as I celebrated my 40th birthday on the Gold Coast, Queensland. It was a surprise put on by my husband and had a fab time. Spoilt rotten is the only way to describe it.
After coming back home it was back to reality with kids back to school and my youngest child starting this year (sniff sniff). He surprised me how ready he was for big school and that he didn't need me, so much anymore. It is such a relief.
Now I have been glued to the news about beautiful Queensland going through more devastation. They've had to brave a Cyclone going through North Queensland and though it is not as bad as they first thought, it still looks bad and it hasn't stopped yet. So we are all thinking of you at this terrible time.
Time to show what I have been doing.
I have sent these cards out to customers to inform them of our current promotion which is Sale-a-bration. This continues until the 31st March, 2011.

This is a great opportunity to earn free stamps. For more details check out my website by on the right column.
The stamp set I used is Aviary and the colours are from the Brights collection.
Thanks to those of you for stopping by and have a great day.
