Phew! What A Day

Wow today has been busy. I had a class on this morning, my daughters BIG "13th" birthday this afternoon and have been packing to go to the snow for 5 days. Boy am I looking forward to getting down there and putting my feet up for a while.
I have heard that the snow is fantastic although I am a hot holiday kind of gal but I am sure that my kids are going to have a ball. They love skiing!
Hopefully when I get back I will finally get around to posting some new cards and updated renovations photo's.
Back on deck on Friday so please email me and I will answer as soon as possible.

Stitches and Papercraft Show

Hi to everyone I met at the show last week. I totally enjoyed the two days that I was out there. I have always attended the show but never been on a stand before and it was a wonderful experience.
I got to meet so many talented people and to share my passion with you. I say this often but will say it again, "I love my job". Hopefully everyone that attended the stand and got to watch the demo's or took part in the Make and Take has gone home inspired and has been busy creating!
Please contact me if you would like any information on classes or workshops or to discuss any products. If you didn't get a catalogue at the show, I can arrange to get one to you. There are so many great products and creative ideas it is a great buy.
I will hopefully have some new cards to post soon. My renovation is nearly over and that will give me so much time back. For everyone who is waiting for the final product, hopefully next week. I want to wait until everything is done for the next photo.

A Beautiful Surprise

One day last week a very dear friend called in and gave me this beautiful bunch of flowers. It wasn't my birthday and I wasn't sick they were just a lovely surprise. They all started out as buds and over the past 5 days I have had the pleasure of watching them bloom into this wonderful display of natures beauty. Each day they have looked different and each day I get a great feeling when I look at them so I thought I would share that with you. Hope you see the beauty that I do. Thanks for my lovely surprise!

Where has the time gone

I haven't had much time lately to update my blog. With renovations and work I have neglected my postings. I made this card a while ago but I still love it. The colours are Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White and Certainly Celery. The stamp set is Bold Butterfly from page 81 of the catalogue. I have mounted the large butterfly using Dimensionals to give the card some lift. I have also used the Dimensionals in glitter and put them in the centres of some of the flowers. This doesn't show up very well in the photo but it really lifts the card. The ribbon is Certainly Celery Grosgrain.
I promise to update again soon and will also post the latest stages of the renovations. I have a great photo of cat footprints in wet cement which was a laugh.
