Still playing..

Not fussed on this layout either, but will have another play another day. No power tomorrow (3rd day in a few weeks) so will have to sleep and read I guess, could even *gasp* stamp!

Back again!

Hi Guys,

Thought I'd better explain my blog change. I recently resigned from Stampin' Up!, due to time and money constraints mostly, but also so I could feel free-er to purchase, and blog, products from other companies. I really enjoyed my time with SU and those Demoes are some of the fabbest, most gorgeous, peeps you'll ever meet. I still consider them as good friends and hope to stay in touch, maybe even get to Convention in 2013 (as mentioned in my last post, I'll be heading to Europe instead of Convention this year). Anyway, I had to remove all the SU Demo stuff from my blog. I tried to just change the header but forgot how I did it last time duh!!! Anyway, I've gone for simple until I have time to figure out what the heck I did last time (I do remember it taking me hours & hours LOL).

Anyway, gotta run. Heading out for tea :-)

A card for Lizzie

I hope you didn't just faint at the sight of a blog post! This is the first card I've had time to take a pic off,  let alone edit and blog. Have been busy with work, uni and life. I am going to Europe with my beautiful niece in May and organising the trip is also taking time, but so much fun :-)

My lovely work friend Liz reached a significant milestone birthday the other week and I made a card for everyone to sign. I wanted pretty and vintagey and found lots of inspiration on Splitcoast, especially this card, which I merged into one card.

Here's my card:

Forgive the poor photography. It was late at night by desk lamp. I am pleased to say that Liz loved it and said that she'd been hoping to get a 'Fi card'. Sweet words indeed. Also gratifying to over hear someone say 'did she make that??'. Had fun, and made a big mess, all the joys of stamping.

I used 'Established Elegance', 'Perfectly Penned', 'French Foliage' by SU and PTI's 'Big B'day Wishes' and their number dies. Paper is Su's Beau Chateau. I had to go on Youtube to figure out how to emboss the little frame, but once I saw the tutorial it worked perfectly, no more crumples!

I really wanted to make a card for my friend Andrea's 50th but having 3 other birthday cards to make, on top of this one, and several uni assignments all due meant time just ran out. Sorry Andrea. Maybe I'll get to make a (very) belated one.

Hope you all have a great week (month, six months LOL).
Hope to catch you after my next uni essay is finished,
