2 days to go …

Well, on 17 March it will be St Patrick’s Day … and it is also my husband’s birthday. So, this is the card I’ve made for him … and how handy was the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Polka Dot Punches!! I was completely inspired by Splitcoaststampers for this card here. I’ve also used the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Yummy, for the sentiment “with love” and my “Happy Birthday” is from God’s Blessings. And the background stamp I’ve used is En Francais. My only regret with this card is that I should have stamped the “Happy Birthday” a little lower 😦 But, otherwise, I think this has to be the best birthday card I’ve made for Shane yet, especially seeing as it is also St Pat’s Day!!  Oh, and the colour is Wild Wasabi through and through!

As you no doubt know, I love embellishments! And so there are a few on this card: a square rhinestone brad, Antique Brass hodgepodge, Wild Wasabi stitched grosgrain, black and white gingham and linen thread.

I hope you like this idea!

Remember, Sale-a-bration finishes for the year on Saturday, so if you have an order of $100 or more, then now is the time to place it with me … so you can have a free Sale-a-bration stamp set to go with it!

Thanks for looking 🙂

Embossing class

This is one of the cards we will make at my embossing class on Friday 20 February 2009.

Given the horrific fires that have swept through Victoria this week, I want to help in what small way I can.  So, I will be donating all profits from my embossing class to the Red Cross for the Victorian Bush Fire Appeal.  Please come along and support a worthy cause.

Bookings are essential, so email me today.

Thanks for looking.

Valentine’s Day next weekend!

This is the card I’ve made for my husband for Valentine’s Day. I was entirely inspired by Dawn’s card here. Thank you, Dawn! I hope Dawn’s card may inspire you the way it inspired me 🙂

I love the way Polka Dot Punches embosses … the heart just looks elegant. The silver was a perfect colour for a masculine card … and I teamed it up with the Going Grey Textured cardstock (not having enough Silver) and the Basic Grey Taffeta ribbon. And ever since I earned the First Level Hostess stamp set, Party Punch, I have wanted to use the “Be Mine” stamp with the Round Tab punch … and I remembered to use it! I’m really amazed I remembered! It’s so easy to forget you have a particular stamp, isn’t it?!

Have a great day and thanks for looking 🙂
