Over at Helping Hudson, they have been running challenges and offering great tutorial packages (at a small cost) to help raise money for a special chair for little Hudson.  I have been meaning to play along with a challenge all month and now that there is only 2 hours left to join in, I have […]

My monthly Stamp Club class is something I look forward to each month as it is so great to catch up with the girls and they truly have become my friends.  It’s class time again tomorrow and this is the card we’ll be making. It uses the big shot to cut the top note, little […]


It was my sister’s birthday this week and I went my my mum and another sister to meet her for lunch.  We had a lovely time and so did my 3 yr old son and his 4 yr old cousin.  They loved playing in the water fountain that were near the restaurant but somehow they […]


I want to say thank you to everyone that sent me a “thinking of you” message.  It’s great to see that there are people that still care and that actually care about me.  I really appreciate it and it has really helped me.  Thank you. I wish I could send you all one of these […]

I had my first class at home yesterday.  I think it went quite well apart from the fact that it took 3 1/2 hours!  I didn’t realize how long it would take.  I guess the fact that my tape runners ran out and we had to cut double sided tape off the roll really chewed […]


For the Bride

16Jul09

I absolutely fell in love with this set,For the Bride, the second I saw it.  I also thought ‘how many times am I going to use it, and is it worth buying it?’  Too practical!! So I didn’t end up buying it.  But I was lucky enough recently to achieve a new level as a […]


I caved in recently and bought the much sort after Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set.  This is my first attempt at using it.  I have seen so many lovely designs but thought I’d keep this one simple and come up with my own. I have used Pink Pirouette cardstock for the base and also the […]
