more cards

A few more cards... This one has been stuck in my brain since I did the first free-standing pop-up card...

Like how its turned out! :) Slider-card follows - magic slides out both ends when you pull on the ribbon bit. Took me three goes to get this right!!

Loads of love - just tried the little truck with different colours! :)
And a Dahlia fold card which has turned out beautifully - little bit of inking around the edges and I made it all stick out a bit.

Egg-citing weekend!

Well the kids are high on chocolate and have been running around the yard for a good part of the day to burn it off. (edited to insert photo)

After Sharon cleaned the house yesterday, I went over the carpets again with the power-head vac and cleaned up a bit more in the kitchen and dining room in preparation for people visiting on Tuesday for my Stampin' Up! launch. Slowly getting through the piles of junk that accumulate around my house...

So here's some cards I made ready for my workshops:
And a page I did for the EB Friday Challenge #29 set by Natmay.

Fath'r & son

My brother and his son - very pleased with this - edited out a picture behind the baby's head and lightened the photo considerably. Spooky resemblance to me when put up against my sig-file on 3AS and EB!!

Baby card

Here's a baby card I made tonight for one of my mother's group. Lost touch but heard along the grapevine she's just had a little girl. Background is versamark ink and chalking on white cardstock. Tags I bought at a newsagents in various sizes. Pink SU ink and brown staz-on with watercolour pencils. Very happy with the result!

Stampin' Up!® Adventure

So I've just started as an Independent Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator. My launch workshop is Tuesday 25 March 2008 and I'm offering 10% off retiring stamps. I'm not quite sure what I'll be doing just yet - a lot spinning through my skull. I'm sorting out some space at home to do regular workshops - might take me a little while. Trying not to rush too much!! I'm really excited about running workshops to show people how to make gorgeous cards for every occasion! Please contact me if you're interested in attending.

Here's a card I've done for a challenge, trying out a new style. Its supposed to fold flat, but I hiccuped on that with the addition of the ribbon. Working on a cute one that uses this technique.

Just adding some more cards to this post - Christmas ones and gorgeous butterfly one done at workshops with Linda Higgins - others are all my own (blush).

A new adventure

Big announcement time! I've joined Stampin' Up!® as an independent demonstrator! Nothing to show yet, but have updated the old image on the blog and am going to slowly work on updating my links and how this looks! Bit excited, but not too much.
