Supposedly the very next day....ha!

Well, I had the very best of intentions of posting agin the day after my first post, and of course a million and one other things got in the way, and instead i ended up helping with the preparation of lecture notes and tutorial problems. Then came Halloween, and the next day (supposedly my crafty day) we ended up cleaning gloss paint off the driveway, our cars and our neighbours cars, thanks to some moron deciding to redecorate!! With the clean up finished, it's been all work and no play this week - something which I changed this weekend, as i got into Christmas Card production mode, especially now that the lovely Monica has sent me my Stampers 10 goodies :) Pictures of the latest creations are on their way shortly but in the meantime, here's a card I made as part of the Stamp With Us Winter sketch challenge, I'm loving my snowman!!

Hopefully I'll be back soon with a couple of this year's Christmas designs.

I'm here!

Hey folks, well I have finally got around to setting myself up with a blog - I seem to have spent ages drooling over other people's and have decided to give it a go myself. Hopefully everyone is having a great weekend - I'm looking forward to the extra hour in bed tomorrow morning for sure. I'm currently experimenting with my blogger settings - so please excuse the mess. In the meantime, here's a card that i created for the first challenge at 'Stamp With Us Winter'.

The challenge was to create a project using Stampin' Up's! bashful blue, lavender lace and certainly celery colours, along with a border punch in a different way (I used the scalloped oval and cut sections out to use as photo corners) and I used the fresh cuts stamp set. I was rather pleased with the final card - especially given that it was created, photographed and uploaded in an hour - it usually takes me that long to decide which stamp set I'm going to use! Well, that's enough gabbling for today - I've got some more projects to share tomorrow. Nighty noodles.
