Firstly I apologies for not posting as regularly as usual - I think I was a little flat after Convention - which seems strange because I was sooo fired up when I left Canberra! Maybe it was heading back to work straight away that did it - I wanted to play not work!! It's also amazing how my few days away from home can create soo much housework!!!
I am currently preparing a display for the Picture to Page Papercrafting Show which is on this coming weekend in Melbourne. I'll be on the Stampin' Up stand on Saturday if you want to pop in and say "hi" - it's at The Whitehorse Club, 298-336 Burwood Hwy, East Burwood - Mel.Ref 62C7
I've used a number of cards I already had in my stash but I did need a few more to co-ordinate the display properly. I made these up on Mother's Day - it was wonderful to sit and stamp without worrying about what else I should be doing!! I love the guys from Holiday Line-Up and can't decide which group is my favourite. These guys just have some colours "washed" over in places using my Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss stamp pads and blender pen! The striped DP from Urban Garden gives them a really funky feel I think.
This card is a direct CASE from the fabulous Dawn Griffith - she has a wonderful video tutorial here. It uses the crayon resist technique. I have seen some fabulous different colour versions of these lately but Dawn's colours co-ordinated perfectly with the rest of my display! Check out Zarna's and Lisa's versions too - gorgeous! These lovely ladies were the inspiration for me trying the card out - so thanx!
This one was inspired by one of the swaps I received at Convention - from Andrea Lowcock, check out her swaps here. I was in desperate need of a place to start when I saw the box of swaps, and I ended up with way too many ideas in the end - LOL. I have changed her design around a little - but loved the whole concept of her card - and yes, you guessed it - it matched my display!! I've also added Dazzling Diamonds to the Pacific Point leaves on the main image - a little bling never hurts - LOL
Now for the wonderful blog award Kellie Winnell not only passed on to me but had designed herself!!!! The idea behind the award is this - to quote Kellie - "I feel that there are a lot out there that are award for the creative sides of things and I love them, but few to just appreciate the people that follow and comment on your blog which to me nothing makes my day more than having gorgeous comments left on something you created, really lifts the spirits and makes my day." I'm soo with Kellie on that - it's amazing how a few comments can change a bad day around!
I'd like to pass this on too....in no particular order....because these gals always end up making me smile!!!! Check out their fabulous blogs too!!!
Kellie Winnell - yup she deserves it even if it IS her award!!!
Marcia at The Stamp Spot
Cheryl Joshua - I know Kellie gave her this award but she always brightens my day too!
Kristine B from Ink Something
I know, I went over 5 recipients too - but it's tooo hard not too!!! Trust me I could have kept on going - I enjoy reading every single comment left on my blog - OH OK - there were a couple I had to delete that weren't so enjoyable!! Thanx to everyone who leaves comments - it really is appreciated!
