Happiness is stamping with friends!

Petal Pizzazz for Mum!

1 Comment

Hi again! How is your day going? I am off to my daughter’s place today (this is where you pipe in and say … you don’t look old enough to have a married daughter, Andrea!!!) 😉 Anyway, I am off to my daughter’s with my other 2 daughters to help them get ready to go to a friend’s wedding! It is nice that even though they are all growing up and becoming independent … they still like their mum to do their hair & make-up for them! So … I am happy to help them out! I am not invited to the wedding … but thought I would go and have a “sticky-beak” … as Skye is singing (& Shane is accompanying her on guitar) … so I just can’t miss a chance to see them perform. (The bride is one of my kids’ friends from youth group & it is just a smallish wedding.) Anyway … enough “blah blah blah” … here is another of my recent NEW CATALOGUE CREATIONS!


The amazing thing about this gorgeous flower stamp set???? It was FREE!!! Yes … I received this as a Sale-a-bration reward for sales during January & February!!!!! SU! is soooo good to it’s demonstrators. It was so much fun to pick a couple of FREEBIES when the new catalogue was released!!!

Isn’t it amazing … I have only just got around to ordering the Basic Grey card & stamp pad … only to find it was one of the colours in the Afternoon Tea papers. You wouldn’t think it could be an attractive colour for a card … but I have seen plenty lately using this colour … so I am hoping to “experiment” a little with it.

I’d love to have some feedback on my recent creations! … Now … back to my swaps … I think I will be doing these for the next two weeks, solid!!!
