September News!

Hello Stampers

No, I haven't fallen off the side of the planet 😕 but my Blog has taken a back seat to "Life" lately haha  I am better at keeping my Facebook Page up to date so check that out if you don't hear from me here. I will pop a link on the right hand side of this Page or click here -

I have just come home from a driving trip down to the Hunter Valley, Shoal Bay, Salamanda Bay and Coffs Harbour and ticked off another thing on my "Bucket List"....take my own car on a driving trip.
I had 2 lovely friends to join me and share a little bit of the driving.  It definitely would not have been as much fun without them.

We did the wineries and the Cheese Specialty places and the beautiful Hunter Valley Gardens.  A must see if you are ever in that area.

 I just love this saying "Time to Drink Champagne and Dance on the Table".  I saw it at Two Fat Blokes Cafe and now I am on a mission to find one for myself.  😁

The main reason for this trip, also, was to catch up with a Primary School Friend whom I lost contact with in 1978 when I went overseas for 12 months.  I found her again on Facebook. Thank You Mark Zuckerberg for creating Facebook 😃 I just loved chatting for hours about our lives over the last 40ish years!!! Love you to bits Mish 💋

Now I am back home again and busy as a little beaver prepping for my World Card Making Day Event on 7th October this year.  I am holding it at a local Tavern near me on the Sunshine Coast (Australia) and it has a great water view and lovely location to craft away the day.

It has mainly a "Christmas" Theme but am throwing in a birthday card as well.

So I thought I would use my Foil Snowflakes in a Christmas Banner. Here is the end result which I m going to tie to the front of my display table at WCMD.

I didn't waste any part of the foil snowflake.  I cut out the middle which would have been covered by the Cherry Cobbler circle

Then hot glued the snowflake to the rosette. I used the "Merry Music" Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) for the rosette.

Lastly I added Large Letters using the Champagne Foil Sheets

I will now use the middle pieces from the Foil Snowflakes on another project.  Watch this space or my FB Page for what these are used for 😉

Well thanks everyone for being patient with me and my Blog tardiness.  I will try and get to it more often.

Happy Stamping
