Hi Everyone

A couple of weeks ago my good friend Bette turned 70 .... sssshhh ... she doesn't like to think about it. I was scratching my head about her birthday card because I wanted it to be super special. Bette and I have always been great shoppers and have had tons of fun over the years getting our 'retail therapy'. I found this gorgeous card over at Calla Lily Studio and it suited the occasion perfectly. Here is my version of her card:

How cute is that? Now here are the real 'shopper queens' at Bette's 'special' birthday lunch :)

All punches, some card and papers used were from Stampin' Up! with a mixture of card, embossing folders and papers from other companies.

Happy Birthday Girlfriend!

Hello Everyone

Well here we are at the start of a New Year .. My wish for this year is that it is a happy year for us all particularly after our annus horribilis (to quote the Queen) of last year.  With the passing of my Mum and Greg's Dad, 2012 was really just a blur for our families and you can tell from my lack of posts and lack of updates. So let me remedy that and kick off the new year with a photo of the Christmas Card that I made for some friends.

This cute little Gingerbread House was inspired by a card that was demonstrated at the Brisbane Heartfelt Stampin' Event in November last year. The original card was created by Liz Collett and this is my version.

I have used products from several different companies but all the stamps, punches and dies that were used are from Stampin' Up!. Contact me if you would like to know more.

Stay tuned for more posts.Hugs and Happy Stamping
