I just wanted to remind you that our Inventory Clearance Sale is still running … and there are some GREAT BARGAINS happening! Some stamp sets are reduced by 50%!!! And … if you have been wanting an Alphabet stamp set for your scrap booking … then now is the time to buy … with 3 different sets reduced from $77.95 to $38.98!!! I must admit … I have often thought about the “Life Definitions” set which is normally $90.95 … but is now on special for $68.91! Not sure I can pass that one up!!! 😀 It is full of lovely sayings! And … I am going to make sure I get some of the ribbons that are on special too!!! Oh … and truly … you will want the Chunky Sprinkles at this price … they are just FAB! (I already have 3 packs – I bought them when they first were available in a mini catty – just in case they didn’t make it to the IB&C!!! – I think that will keep me going for a while!) And … I really wanted to highlight the “Warm Words” set … an absolute MUST!!! 😀 It was one of my very first stamp sets … and I have used these gorgeous little words over and over again! This set is a STEAL at 30% off ($29.95). So … make sure you email me with your orders BEFORE JAN 24TH!!! Take advantage of these great prices.
Well … time for a card! 😀 I decided to buy a stamp set recently that has been around for a while … and I have been tempted for a long time … but kept resisting. I just fancied something a little different … and this set is quite “formal” & “elegant”. And … I must admit … very easy to use! So … I have already made 3 cards using this set … and am planning some more! Here is the first …
Isn’t this a lovely colour combo … and yes … don’t faint … but I have used the “loathsome” Pacific Point. And … it actually looks FAB … don’t you think??? I also bought the “En Francais” background particularly to go with this stamp set … and it does team PERFECTLY … doesn’t it??? This design was a Pink Elephant challenge (#46) … I just changed it to be a square layout instead of a rectangle card.
You can see that I have stamped the image twice … and cut around the “H” … added some gorgeously sparkly blue supernova glitter and layered this on top with dimensionals. I am really thrilled with the result! (Not so thrilled with the photo … cos it is a little dark!) The rhinestones have been taken out of the brads (just open the clips on the back of the brads … and remove rhinestone) … and I have stuck these on with mini glue dots!
Gav & I were “kidless” for a few hours last night (NOT A COMMON OCCURRENCE AT OUR HOUSE! 😀 ) Sandy had a sleepover at a friend’s place … Skye had a rehearsal … Sheree & Shane are down the coast at the beach mission … so Gav & I decided to pop out to the movies with some friends (whose two boys were sleeping over at their grandparent’s place).
We had a lovely time … dropped Skye down at Shellharbour Village and grabbed burgers/fish for dinner … then went and saw “Sherlock Holmes” … and back to Shellharbour Village for coffee to wait for Skye. It even stormed (as in major thunder/lightening/rain) while we were sitting on the verandah of the coffee shop looking down the street to the beach. Perfect!!! It was a lovely evening … and I think we just really enjoyed getting out together with friends! The movie was actually not one I wanted to see … and was definitely a bit more violent than I was expecting (lots of fist fighting – and I DO NOT LIKE punch ups!) … but Holmes & Watson were just cast so well … and the story was very clever … so … I actually was surprised to find I quite enjoyed the movie! I did “jump” a few times (I don’t handle suspense very well!!!) … but I came out thinking … yep … would recommend the movie to others … and I will definitely be seeing the sequel!!! (I’m sure there will be one … but I won’t spoil the ending!!! 😉 )
Sorry to have rabbited on so long … I’m sure you are all yawning with boredom by now! 😉 But … I am just making up for when I will be away on hols. (2 weeks from Jan 16 – Jan 31). I am planning some scheduled posts (I hope) … but there won’t be any chit chat! So … you can just grin and bear it in the meantime … ok??? 😀 Anyway … I am off to my sis’ for the day! Might take some stamping … and we can sit & just chillax for a while! Sounds nice … doesn’t it! C U all soon!
