Snow Swirled Christmas

Hi everyone, I am just popping in here quickly to show you another of the Christmas Cards that I have made this year. I just loved snow swirled when it was first released in our Catty this year. I have used Baja breeze, Not quite Navy and Whisper White. I also used the sanded background stamp and the sentiment is from occasional greetings. I finished with a Rhinestone brad and some dazzling diamonds. Ok I am now off the attack the house today. I am having a cleaning day and have half started heaps of jobs, I have the vacuuming half started, the ironing, the beds stripped the washing up started and the kids are cleaning up there toys because Santa just won't come to a messy house.....lol......So I need to actually focus and get one of those jobs completed.....If I don't get back here before Christmas....I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!!!!

Male Christmas Card

I needed a couple of Male Christmas Cards so I didn't want them to fancy, so this is what I came up with. The colours are Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White. I have used the Holly Jolly Christmas Stamp Set. This was a pretty simple card to make so there isn't really much to tell you about how to do it. I hope you are all getting organised for Christmas....Not long now......

Teachers Gifts

I have seen then floating around blog land on a few different blogs but am not sure who the original creator is. I made my own measurements to fit the hot chocolate sachets that I had. I made the boxes using Night of Navy, Whisper White & Brocade Blue, I also used the same colours on the card but also added some vellum cardstock. I am sorry about the quality of the photo's but I was rushing out the door yesterday morning and realised I forgot to photograph the cards and the presents. It was Nicholas last day at preschool yesterday! I carn't believe how quickly they grow up.....Now you can see the inside of the box well that side was filled with lindt and darrell lea chocolates when it was given to the teachers. I just didn't have any on hand when I took the piccy.....Lucky I would say because I would have only eaten them anyway.......

Baby Card

Hey there, Hows the Christmas rush being treating you?..... Why do we always try to to jam to much into these last couple of weeks? I guess thats just part of Christmas, well for me anyway....lol....I thought I would pop in here and show you this Baby card I made last week its very cute. The idea isn't mine I copied it but again I carn't find out where. I had just saved this picture and made up my own measurements, it is very handy now having the 1 3/4" circle punch because that is what I used for the neck and the arms. The pockets are just what was cut from the neck. I finished with a rub-on and some stitching all around. I hope you like it.....

Christmas Card

I made this cards the other day for some of friends that I had lunch with. I used the sweet treat cups which hasn't photographed very good but it is a quarter filled with glitter to give the effect of snow in a snow globe. I used the wish for peace stamp set and coloured with my old olive and chocolate chip markers. I think everything else is pretty straight forward, if not just ask..... I have been scrapbooking and not card making so I will have some more pages to share with you soon......Have a good day......

ESAD Summer Mini Blog Hop

Welcome to the ESAD-SU Summer Mini Blog Hop. ESAD - Extremely Special Aussie Demonstrators is a yahoo group dedicated to Australian Stampin Up Demonstrators where we share heaps of ideas and tips with each other as well as offer support and encouragement.

Now a bit about my project. I have used the Kaleidoscope DS Papers and teamed a Close to Cocoa heading that has been wheeled with Retro Remix Wheel in Close to Cocoa Ink. I also added some Rub on dots from the Dots & Designs Rub-ons. Now I just love those Crocheted flowers. I punched out some Close to Cocoa cardstock and added a cute pink button from the Sherbet collection threaded with some Linen thread and popped those on top of the flowers with a glue dot. I just loved how this has turned out and I think those crocheted flowers have just made the page.

Now to go and see the rest of the projects made by my fellow ESAD friends just follow this link to Narelle Hodges blog and then she will have a link to the next blog and hopefully you will end up back here where you started. If you would love to win some fabulous blog candy just leave a comment on all of the 30 blogs that are participating in this blog hop. Have fun hopping along.....
