Get Whale Soon

The kids and I are currently enjoying a short holiday with friends in California while hubby works hard back at home. Before we left though I forgot to share this card with you all.

I made it for my cousin who is pretty ill at the moment. He suffers from M S and is in the hospital with a kidney infection. We are all sending prayers his way in the hopes he will be well enough to go home soon. xxxxx

Thanks for looking

Kickin' It for Michelle

I read some sad news the other day, fellow blogger Michelle from had a really nasty accident about two weeks ago, which has left her with the loss of her right eye and a long road of recovery ahead. She is on the design team for A Spoon Full of Sugar and in an effort to cheer her up and raise awareness for what happened they are holding a card drive in her honor. They are asking that everyone please create a card in dedication to Michelle and mail it off to her and flood her mailbox with well wishes from around the world. More details and her address is on the spoon full of sugar website.

They have posted a donkey image on there too that you can download for you to use for the card. I am off on a 2 week trip to see friends in California in 2 days but just had to make a card for this before I left. I hope she likes it.

Thanks for looking

My Daughter and I have been working on a knot-a-quilt that she got for Christmas. I have been encouraging her to do as much as possible as it is good practice for her to learn to tie knots. This week we finally finished it and she is very happy. we had one block missing so I made her a replacement from one of her old pyjamas that she had grown out of.

Cards for my Neice

I made a couple of cards recently for my Niece. She lives in the UK and has recently started a new job at a sanctuary for cats and rabbits. She loves animals and I think she will be awesome. She also has just bought a new car so I thought it would be nice to send her a couple of cards to celebrate. I knew i had the perfect images in my High Hopes collection. Above is her new job card and below is the card I made for her new car.

Stampin News

I know most of you probably know this already but the new Stampin' Up catalogue is out today. I for one am very excited. They have revamped the colors bringing back some of my favorite In-Colors this time to stay. I am going to sit down with mine and start working on my wish list.

With a lot of sets retiring my Demo Jane had a stamp-a-stack class using a few of her favorites. I got to meet and make some new friends while having lots of fun doing what I love most. Here is a pic of the cards I made.

Seen as I am on the subject of Stampin' Up I thought I would show you a picture of my tree. It's from the SU Definitely Decorative line. I bought it months ago and have been putting off putting it up as it seemed such a huge task and time has not been in my favor. Well I finally grabbed some time to put this beautiful tree up on my craft room wall. My walls are textured which is not the best surface for things like this but it seems to be happy for now.
