Mini Catalogue Preview

I'm sorry I haven't updated sooner, I've been sick with the flu and just haven't had the energy to do anything. Ahh I love winter lol. But I did think I should post before I go and get my copy of Harry Potter and disappear into the wizarding world for one last time. And I will not cry. Ok, maybe a little.

For all those in the US that view this site, this will be no surprise, but for the Australians, we have a great set in our new mini, called Scribble This. And I love it! I have a feeling you'll be seeing it everywhere, it seems to be one of the most popular sets, and of course I had to get it. It also has a matching well and alphabet. Fantastic.

Our Spring Mini is available from the 1st of August to the 30th November. If you'd like to receieve a free copy please email me and I'll pop one in the post for you.

I've Been Tagged Again!

Now I never have enough people to tag, that haven't already been tagged of course lol

So 7 vaguely interesting things about myself.

1. I hate housework, loathe it with a passion. And will do anything I can to get out of it.

2. I spend way too much time on the internet.

3. I don't have interests I have obsessions.

4. My husband thinks I'm nuts because I think actors the likes of Alan Rickman, William Peterson and Tony Head are dead sexy.

5. I enjoy silence. I find it very hard to concentrate on reading or creating when there is a lot of noise happening. Although sometimes some Linkin Park is called for.

6. I don't go to the gym anywhere near as much as I should. But when I do I love it.

7. I like to sleep. I love having an afternoon nap, it orders my mind.

Now who to tag.

Ok I only have 4 so we'll see what happens lol.

June Elite Stampers Cyberchallenge

On Thursday night we had a cyber challenge on Angela Sargeants forum for the Elite Stampers. The great thing about challenges, it really makes you think outside the box.

The challenges set by Tracey Eaton, were challenging to say the least, especially the first colour one. We had to use the colours Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red and Blush Blossom. Not colours that I'd usually use together but I really like the bright combo of them.

The second Challenge was a sketch challenge, we had to create an everyday and Christmas card from the same sketch.

The third challenge was create a card using just inks, cardstock and stamps. And of course that's how I usually create my cards, but I like what I came up with anyway.

All material used are Stampin' Up! and available through me.

Stamp Set - All The Best
Inks - Rose Red Marker
Cardstock - Blush Blossom, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie
