It's been a while..

Hi Guys,

Just a quick post as have to work tonight.

Firstly, my thoughts & prayers to everyone in Christchurch, and to their loved ones around NZ & the World. It is a terrible tragedy, something we seem to be seeing too much of lately.

Sorry it's been so long, again, between posts. A work mate placed an order for five 'Labour Packs', a kit of products to help in labour, such as massage oil, lipbalm etc. I had run out of stock so it's taken a fair bit of time to make everything. PLus, when I went to print my labels, which are stored in the Windows partition on my Mac, I discovered the latest Mac OS update doesn't support Windows XP and my partition seems to have vanished. Thus i had to get new software & make new labels. No huge drama, just time consuming.

Finally, a card. My friend's daughter turned one on the 12th and I was working when her party was on. I finally got around to organising a little gift & needed a card. I turned to a recent Clean and Simple sketch. I have been either straight CASEing or using sketches as I am so short on time that I have no time to think. I use the mighty combined brain of the internet & I thank you all for putting your wonderful talent out there for me to access!!!

The sketch:

And my card:

I recently bought these number dies from PTI and a stamp set to match with 'th', 'st' etc to place after the numbers. I thought this sketch was a good place to try them out. The only thing I would've liked is a frame for the main image. I used retired SU DSP which I love for little girls and stocked up on, and some sprinkles (pink dots). The sentiment is from 'Party This Way' and the cupcakes from 'Short and Sweet'. Colours are 'Regal Rose' and 'Pumpkin Pie'.

Thanks for dropping in, must go & hit the shower,
