Blog Hybernation

G’day Everyone!

Today I am turning a new leaf an placing my WordPress Blog into hybernation. From now on all of my projects will be posted on my Stampin’ Up! Web Site. No doubt there will be some teething problems so please bear with me!
Nothing will change except that I will no long be uploading any projects or current promotions to my old WordPress personal blog or at least that is the plan!!!

For the past 12 months or so it has been a real struggle to keep up with both blogs, working & being a Mum, so the time has come to only have the one website.  For the time being I will see how this all goes and of course if circumstances change I can always reinstate this WordPress Blog.

I want to thank you all so much for the support on my WordPress blog since it’s inception and hope you still stop by my SU Web Site to see what I am up to.

Please click HERE  to be transferred to my Stampin’ Up! Web Site then  click on My Stampin Blog to see all my projects or just click on the link on the right hand side of this page to be directed to my  ‘My Stampin’ Up Website’.

Thanks for stopping by & Happy Stampin’

Christmas in June

G’day Everyone!

So proud of myself for fitting in a few challenges this month.

Todays card was for Inkspirations Colour Challenge #74 and I have to say I love, love this colour combo!

Happy Birthday Stacey

G’day Everyone!

Today my gorgeous daughter Stacey is celebrating her Birthday. Unfortunately I didn’t think we would get to see her on the da,y so I made sure her card was posted in plenty of time along with a small gift from her brother. Finger crossed as it’s over to Aussie Post now! Stacey had a bit of a wish list so I deposited some money into her account so she could at least cross some of the items off.

My Mum has always called Stacey “Daisy” so I thought the Every Moment Daisy stamp fitted the bill exactly for her Birthday card this year. Isn’t the card super cute?

I thought I would take a close up of the daisies for you, with a little Crystal Effects they look like the sun is making the early morning dew sparkle. Well that’s what I think!


As you know, I mentioned in a post earlier in the year that I was going to be super organised and have every months birthday cards made in advance. Well guess what? I am on a roll and so far have stuck to that plan. I am feeling a bit proud of myself, can you tell?

Stamp Set – Every Moment, Short & Sweet, Tiny Tags

Card – Crumb Cake, Melon Mambo, So Saffro, Watercolour

Ink – Stazon Black

Accessories – Watercolour Crayons, Pinking Heart punch, Pearls, AquaPainter, Small Heart punch, Word Window, Modern Label, Crystal Effects

Thanks for stopping by!
