I have been off to Wollongong uni again today … to see Stacey graduate her Diploma in Legal Practice (after graduating her Law Degree & Media & Communications Degree at the end of last year!) Stace has done really well … especially considering she is now married & so has extra responsibilities that many students don’t have … and is also very involved in our local church as a assistant youth leader. So … it was a huge surprise to her to win the “Macquarie Prize” for her course! “The Bill Macquarie prize is awarded each session to the PLT student who makes the most significant contribution to the Course. Academic achievement, although important, is not the sole criterion for the award. The ‘contribution’ students make is measured by the degree of commitment to competence in their coursework and their professionalism and cooperation in their dealings with their colleagues, staff and others in the Course.”
Stace was thrilled to receive this award … she really enjoyed the practical nature of the course and had some wonderful “mentors” who gave her great support and encouragement. It was hard work (60 assessments in 4 mths) but even though it was really intense and a lot of hard work … she did really enjoy it. So … I guess that is enough of being a proud mum … again!!! Perhaps I should share that final stamp a stack card???
So … I have to acknowledge that I CASED this card from a swap that we had at Ness’ team meeting recently. This card was designed by Leonie Newman … thanks Leonie! (I have changed it a little … using an eyelet punch along the bottom edge … where Leonie had done a torn edge. But … apart from that it is basically the same as Leonie’s design.)
I love this card! It is soooooo pretty … but soooooo sooooo simple to create! And … the Bashful Blue sample was just as pretty as these two! This is also a great card to do for Christmas as it uses very little in the way of supplies! Cheap but gorgeous! Just perfect!!! 😀
- Stamp Set: Snow Swirled
- Inks: Versamark, Whisper White
- Cardstock: 1 colour – Cut 1 x A5 + 12.5 x 9.5 cm
- Notes: Use an Eyelet Border Punch across bottom of smaller piece of card then sponge whisper white ink around the edge of this card. Rub embossing buddy over card. Stamp snowflakes (large & small) randomly over the card with Versamark & sprinkle mix of Heat & Stick Powder / Dazzling Diamonds over the images … tap off excess and heat with your heat tool to set the diamonds onto the card. Tie some white organza ribbon around and stick to the main card. Wipe embossing buddy over bottom of card. Use versamark to stamp phrase & sprinkle with Silver embossing powder. Heat to set. Voila! Done! Such a quick & easy card! I hope you will try it for yourself!
I am participating in a “Cyberstamping Weekend” with some lovely Aussie SU! demonstrators over the next couple of days. It started last night with a colour challenge … and then this morning there was a sketch challenge … and this afternoon a 3D challenge. So far I have kept up! I will show you all my creations soon! We also have a Bingo game running over the whole weekend and tonight there is a “Mini Catty Scavanger Hunt” on … not sure what that involves … but I had better fly as it starts in 5 mins!!!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
