Do you know I wrote the title for this post last night … got interrupted … and didn’t get back to the computer at all! So … “Snowed” … ain’t that the truth! 😉 I am so hanging for the school holiays in October! In all the busy-ness of the new Catty month + soccer finals + Yr 12 exams + Music performances + sports gala days + birthdays + 50th anniversarys + father’s day + catty launch + orders … I just haven’t had a chance to stamp with any of my pre-order goodies. So … you will have to be satisfied with something I made a couple of weeks ago. I would so love to show you some NEW STUFF !!! Perhaps by the end of next week … after the Catty Launch I might find some time to stamp just FOR ME!!! In the meantime I do have plenty of Stamp Club & StampNGiggle projects to share!
Isn’t this an elegant colour combo? It is a Colour Throwdown combo. They have had some gorgeous combos lately … I am just sad that I haven’t had the time to play! (Click on challenge pic to visit the site!) This card is showing layered images … and I am a huge fan of this technique since watching Shelli demonstrating at the last two conventions. And … I have used my fav butterfly stamp … too! (Sorry the photography is a little dark!) Well … I need to go order some daffodils for our Cancer Council Launch night … and pack some guest packs … so I had better stop procrastinating.
Today is Gav’s mum & dad’s 50th wedding anniversary … oooh! that reminds me … I need to finish their card! We are going up to Sydney tonight … to Darling Harbour. We have booked a room on the “South Steyne” … an old boat that is moored on the harbour. It is going to be a special night. Skye has written a song for her grandparents. (I was stunned to hear it last night and realise that it had only taken 2 hours for her to write!) I know I am her mum … but sometimes I am just so in awe of her musical gifts! I would so love to be able to do what she does! Sandy has his soccer GRAND FINAL tomorrow … but will probably be worn out after a big night tonight! Not good timing! We did suggest that we have the dinner tomorrow night … it would have been much less of a rush for the workers having to leave work early to make it in time up to Sydney … but some sentimental family members felt it should be ON THE DAY! :ROLL: We are not expecting Sandy’s team to win tomorrow … as the team he is playing against is undefeated for the season. Sandy’s team has had 1 draw & 2 narrow losses against them … so I guess there is always a chance! Anyway … I better fly … it is going to be a busy day! AGAIN!!!!!! 🙄 Stampin’ Hugs xxx
PS: Oooh! I forgot to add … I haven’t forgotten about my blog challenge … I will get my family to help me choose a winner ASAP! Keep watching for the announcement! Prizes for EVERYONE!!!! 😉
It must be so fabulous to live in a house of SUCH inspiration, talent and creativity Andrea. The card is STUNNING and I love the colour combo to bits. Everything in it is balanced so beautifully. The b’flies just finish it off.
I’ll send u as much energy reserves as I can….man u push it to the limit. Best of luck for Sandy “Kewell” and I hope you all have a beautiful night away. Very NOICE place to stay….better if the weather is in ur favour. Breathe, enjoy and relax. ooxx
Andrea adds: Ooooh! I wish we were staying … but sadly it is just for dinner! It will take us at LEAST 2 hours to get home … hence the worry about Sandy’s late night before his big soccer game. He managed to clash heads with another kid at school today … blood nose … bad headache … swollen nose!!! Great timing!!! Giggle … never rains but it pours! Thanks for the hugs and kisses … you have no idea what a boost they always are for me! Hugs right back at ya! xxx
Lots of Mother love n care for poor Sandy. Boys will be boys tho…no matter what!!! Drive hm careful…and I;ll keep the luvin’ and carin’ coming!! ooxx
Andrea adds: Thanks hunny! Woo hoo! Sandy won his grand final … more in today’s post! Hugs xxaxx
Andrea, Your life is sounding like mine at the moment. I hope you have an enjoyable night tonight. Sounds lovely!
This card is gorgeous. I would never have thought to put these colours together. Must add that to my ‘to do’ list sometime.
See you soon,
Andrea adds: It’s such a shame that the photo is a little dark … cos this really is gorgeous IRL! The pic doesn’t really show it off well enough! I’m sure tonight will be lovely ONCE we get there! 😉 Hugs xxaxx Off to get ready now … so won’t be back to answer comments until tomorrow. xxx
Oooh, I like it a lot!
Been so busy – haven’t had time to blog at all…so you are doing better than me… hopefully it will all come to an end soon.
Andrea adds: I understand totally, Sonia! Keep smilling hunny! Hugs xxaxx
What a beautiful card! Hope all goes well for you this weekend. xx
Andrea adds: Finally stopped to do a little blog hopping this morning … and popped by your blog … and HERE you are today! How lovely that we managed to do that together! The weekend was a DOOZY … but a very happy one!!!
Beautiful, I’m so glad the futterfly stayed around for the cattie. I wish I could play more challenges, I’m sorry I missed yours. Life has been very challenging with my little girl going for surgery tomorrow.
Thank you for the lovely comments as always.
Andrea adds: Oh Rachel … I will be praying for your daughter! Hope all is ok … and the surgery is a success … and she recovers quickly. Don’t worry about the challenges … much more important things to worry about! Hugs xxaxx
Gorgeous card Andrea. Love the colors, the beautiful butterflies, the words… lovely ribbon and pearl treatmant. :o)
Andrea adds: Thanks Monika! I’m just a bit disappointed in the photo … cos the colours in this one are lovely! But … thanks for the lovely comment! Hugs xxaxx
Your card is awesome Andrea 🙂 As I think you know I’m so not a purple girl, but I think this combo is great . Your collaging is LOVELY!!!!! I must try some more of that (when I get to sit & stamp that is :P)
Andrea adds: I am having trouble sitting and stamping too at the moment! I am going to miss all the old purples … as this is one of my fav colours! Can’t wait to see those new colours! Hugs xxaxx
