Weekend away! Yah ...

Hi Stampers,

Just a little note to tell you all I am still here, but I've been very busy lately getting ready for the upcoming Stamp Camp, Oct 3rd, which by the way is FULL!!  Right, NO seats left.  But good news, because of demand I am having a second day on Nov7th, which at this time is HALF FULL.   There is a post below with all the info.   People, if you want to attend you'll have to respond ASAP, it won't take long to fill up.  You won't want to miss the fun, never mind completing 20 cards and lots more through out the day.  Oh yes, and lots of food too,with  lunch provided.

So I'm away this weekend,  there are 80 of us ladies that wait one whole year for this event, and this weekend has finally arrived.  Scrapbooking/stamping - 24/7 if you wish, with as little sleep as possible.  Now if I can just sleep tonight, I should be able to get at least one whole album completed.  After all, we have a new little one coming, he too will need an album.

Have a great weekend everyone, I'll have some new post by mid week next week, photo's. cards all kinds of fun things!!

OK, Some days there not time to post, then some days I just can't stop.  I was home today, so I got a few things done.  So this is my last post today.  If you don't know we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our Grandson.  Yes, that's right, we know already, IT"S A BOY!!  My daughter's baby shower is this coming Sunday, so more cards are needed.  Here are two that I made for the occasion.  Enjoy!

So here she is, my little girl, her due date is Oct 22nd, but she's ready now.  Decisions, Decisions, which card to use!  What do you think?

Getting Married ! Well maybe not you ....

But our niece is getting married, so you know I had to make a special cards as everyone would be looking at it!  What do you think?  I love it - hope she does too!

I love this card and it was very simple, I used my Big Shot to emboss the background with the Elegant Lines embossing folder.  Then I used some of the Paper Daisies and the Antique Brads.  To finish it off perfectly, I used our new Basic Rhinestones.  This card was a case from another Stampin'Up! Demo - Patty Bennett.  I loved it as soon as I saw it and new it was perfect for our niece.  Hope you like it too, and feel free to case it from me.

Eight more SLEEPS! Yep ..

Every year I go with my girlfriend to NB for a Scrappin Weekend.  There are about 80 ladies in all, and that's all we do do - all weekend.  From the moment we open our eyes, for as long as we can keep them open.  All our meals, snacks, treats, every thing is prepared for us.  We have to do NOTHING .....  but SCRAP.  There are 6 of us that share a cabin every year.  Every year we make a little gift for the other friends, this year I'll bet you can't guess what I'll be making - you got it - CARDS!!  I have made a little set of christmas cards and a small
4 x 4 box to hold them.  I thought  I would share them with my stamp'in friends.  Here's a peek -

Here they are! The rest of our Monthly Swaps

Here are the last two cards I received from the other ladies on our team.  I love how they all fit together so nicely and yet they have all been completed by four different people.  All I suggested was some of the colors, the rest was up to the individual.  I think this would be an awesome class!  What so you stampers think?  Leave a comment and let me know.  We could have this as a class before the holidays arrive!

 These are the last two for this month.  But we share every month and I'll keep you posted!

Monthly Swap

Hi Stampers!

Thought I might show everyone my monthly card swap.  What's a SWAP?  Well, every month the ladies on my Stampin'Up! team, do a monthly swap.  Each one of us takes a turn and chooses the colors, idea, etc we would like to see.  We then let the rest of the team know and each of us has to make a card for each team member. You would make all the same card and mail them to the other team members and of course, they do the same.  We have four members on our team, whats really cool is you receive four different cards, all following the same theme.  It's quite fun!!  As I was the member this month to choose the colors, etc, I decided that I would like a Christmas theme in " Blues, whites and silvers", so with no further ado - here is the cards I am sending out.  As I receive mine, I will post them for you all to see.

Need a card & a coffee!

Hi everyone, Well we're all back to normal here on the Noel Shore.  As it turned out the wind blew and the rain came, but the worst was the loss of power for 24hrs.  Oh how I miss electricity.  Anyway, we are now back up and running and today I've decided to take the BIG step and post my very first original card. 

This is a great little  "pick me up card",  you could send to a friend and invite over for a coffee/tea.  Maybe someone new on the block, even hand deliver it.  What an awesome way to say " Hello".

 List of supplies:
  • Morning Cup stamp set 
  • Whisper white paper
  • Black paper
  • DP ( designer paper ) is Elegant Soiree
  • Baja Breeze
  • Ribbon is Chantilly Lace -  new ribbon which is awesome
  • New Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch  - if you don't have ribbon in the color you want, use this punch, it's absolutely perfect!
Well there you go.  I expect to see all kinds of these cards going around the neighbourhood now.  Have a great day everyone.
