Happiness is stamping with friends!

Hello there!


WOJ - Magical Wishes SB'13 (4)Well … I am super tired this morning! We went to Keith Urban’s concert in Sydney and didn’t get home until 2:30am!! We decided to go by train …. Because it takes an hour to get out of the car park at Allphones Arena … BUT … That was a mistake! We had to change trains twice each trip … Wait in between trains … And there are not a lot of trains that late at night. It was fun & exciting … But I think I am getting too old to be out that late at night! The concert was fantastic! Keith is such an entertainer … And soooooo talented. He was so good at getting the crowd involved. I did enjoy it! The Madden brothers were the back up band an Keith also had Guy Sebastian, Jimmy Barnes & Joel & Benji come on and sing a song each with him. What a great night. I am paying for the late night today … But I am thankful I can be home with Bree. Murray, Sheree & Gav all had to get up & go to work!! Sandy had to go to school … (2nd day back this year!) I hope he doesn’t fall asleep on his desk!

WOJ - Magical Wishes SB'13 (1)WOJ - Magical Wishes SB'13 (3)Today’s card is one I made for Sheree’s birthday on 19th January! Yes … It is taking me a while to get here at the moment! I used a new embossing folder that took my fancy a little while ago! Sorry … the lighting is not so good with these photos. It was a little hard to capture the soft chalks on the embossing! I used a Versamarker pen to “colour” over the raised embossing then sponged some of my new “Pebbles Pearlescent Chalks” over the top. The Versamark ‘holds’ the chalk on the card. This was such a Q&E card! But … perfect for my sweet Sheree.

I guess I should go and play with Bree … although … Shane is doing a great elephant impersonation at the moment! Hope to see you again soon!

  1. This is so soft and pretty, such a gorgeous card, seems like you had an amazing night, would love to have seen Keith perform – happy sigh, something about him lol.


  2. Andrea, this is so, so, so lovely! She will treasure it. What a beautiful job of chalking your EF!!


  3. Miss Andrea….didn’t yo mumma ever tell you that there are consequences to pay for those who galavant out late at night chasing those (very appealing and uber talented) country singer folk????? Am I jealous…slightly…but I am also wrapped you had a fab night. Seeing all that hot stuff on stage at once would have been one for the senses indeed…….insert seamless segway…..
    As this card is!!!! I love the looks of the soft chalk in the embossing. I have NEVER had any luck with this techy….so it is nice to see it when it wkd well. I am sure Sheree was blown away by it!! GORJUS. ooxx


    • As per usual … Your comment made me grin! I can just imagine you rocking the night away … Shame you couldn’t go too! Great Segway! Funny that 12 months ago … No one had ever heard that word … & now we find it so amusing! Hugs xxx


  4. I know we are the same age – and I most definitely am not able to handle late night concerts!!! I was most impressed that you made that card the next day – but then I read your words and realized you had done it earlier. I was glad because I didn’t feel quite so old!!


    • Another giggle … Thanks for making me feel better! I had a nanna nap with my granddaughter on my lap playing on my iPad! How could that happen? Hugs xxx


  5. Oh, how pretty Andrea. Love the embossed images and the soft colors. Very feminine and delicate. We’ve been watching Keith on American Idol over here… it must have been a fun night despite the train issues. I haven’t been at a concert in ages…


  6. Love the card Andrea. It is really pretty and I am sure Sheree loved it. You did well to party Friday night as well 🙂

    I am just imagining Shane doing elephant impersonations. I am sure Bree was very entertained.

    See you soon,

    Love Jenny xx
