Punting on the River Avon - Christchurch NZ

Here we are about to take a leasurly punt down the river - very civilized if you ask me LOL
It was such a pretty evening - a perfect end to a perfect day - followed by a meal in the 'Bard on the Avon" LOL As someone who comes from Stratford-On-Avon (the original Avon) it made me giggle but lots of fun was had by all :O)

Here are the 'upgrades' for the kit - the new Spring Blossom paper flowers which include 6 sizes of flowers (2 of each of the 3 designs) plus butterflies which are adorable. The other upgrade are the new anitque copper mini medley. (apologies that this photo is a little blurry)

And here are the other 3 cards again with their 'upgrades' - You could use these cards for birthdays, get well, anniversary - just a 'hello I miss you' card. Hope you like them as much as I do :O)

January Stamp Of The Month

Oh how I am LOVING this stamp of the month. I love these frames AND the words are perfect for friends where ever they are - living nearby or half way around the world.
I have used Twitterpatted paper on 3 of the top photos cards and the top right card features the swirl stamp from the Felicity Heart Of Winter special offer Kit and stamp set.
On the bottom photo the left hand card uses the Notebook paper and the right hand card uses Perfect Day paper pack (one of my all time favorite paper sets) and also uses the Solo F.
Hope you like these as much as me :O)

I am back again :O)

It was a lot of traveling but so worth it :O) We had a fabulous time and here is I think one of my all time favorite photos of Rich and I - we were standing on the edge of Lake Takepo and the scenery was absolutely beautiful.
I am still totally out of sync with the time so I will try to get up to date here on my blog within a couple of days :O)

I will be MIA for a few days

Yes I am off to New Zealand early tomorrow morning and I can't wait - but more importantly the dog has chewed the cable which I download my photos from my camera - so I have a camera with photos on it for you but can't get them to my computer - darn animal. When I get back from NZ I will go and buy another cable and post photos for you - please be patient with me - so sorry about this :O(

Happy Halloween

Yes I know it is a little late to post this as this album was of 2005 - hey it takes me a while to catch up sometimes :O) I found it when I was searching for something else and after looking back through the pages thought it was just too cute not to post.
I embossed the words using white embossing powder and used liquid applique on the "mummy" - he is soooo cute :O)
Richard & I were the Phantom of the Opera and Christine. 
Leo was a ninja and Elliott was a MNT.
I used Black waxy flax as an accent on most of these pages - here I separated the fibers so that they looked like a spider on the pocket
Hope you like it :O)

Take Flight

I had so much fun making this card - It used the stamp set D1234 - Take flight. I used lots of texture cardstock on here - both torn and sanded. The pheasant was colored using chalks and then I cut it out using a craft knife. The background 'wood-grain' effect was done using a toothbrush dipped in re-inker. The dimensional element bookplate was sponged with ink and then the words stamped on it. I used a  matching marker to color in the edges of it. Autumn terracotta brads and chocolate waxy flax added the finishing touches. Hope you like it :O)
