Me again

Well back again in a short space of time this time. Good news I have finally been able to make contact with a New Zealand Demonstrator for Stampin Up and she is sending off the latest catalogue to me which I should have by Friday so this will make for interesting reading and drooling over for over the weekend.

Have basically caught up on most of my July swaps now which is good for me and I am even starting to organise getting done some of my Cardworkship list swaps for August as well.

On my Rubberstampangels list we do a technique of the month swap and this month it is the direct to paper technique so last night(24July) I had fun playing around with these. Did 3 different coloured backgrounds and used one for a Travel themed card in another group. I will upload the card here when I transfer it from the big computer to CD and then onto this site.

Just waiting for my Collage Hero Arts stamp to come now from Cheryl and that will be something else to play around with as well so lots of fun times coming up stamping wise that is.
Well that's me up to date with my blogs for now.
See ya soon.

Cuttlebug and stamping stuff

Well at last back again to my Stampin blog.

I am enjoying using the new Cuttlebug machine and the embossing folders that is for sure.

It just has to be my best investment over the years as well.

I have been having fun creating my 2007 Christmas cards using both the divine Swirls embossing folder along with the Snowflake embossing folder.

I feel that I am turning out some really great cards all round just now especially for the different 1-4-1 swaps that I am doing. What a change doing 1-4-1 compared to a few years back when all we did were 6 for 5 which got very boring to say the least.

I love my atcs that i make too some of the themes get you really thinking on what to do when you don't always have all the gear to make them and then its amazing how you can improvise when you don't have the gear and it turns out right in the end.

Back again

Have had a good day today. The back has been really good for which I am thankful for and I went down to the school by myself tonight. Could only do the woodwork room as Paul and Karen and Anthony were having a meeting so will go back tomorrow some time to finish.
I managed to get through the morning at the Red Cross shop last Friday 20th April as well and that was a good milestone for me since the back injury.
On the countdown to conference in Hamilton. Only 9 days to go. Can't believe how fast the time is going too as next Monday sees us at the end of April already. So have made a start that is a very small start on Christmas cards but felt I needed to make the effort as well.

Weather is definitely cooling down here in town now and the trees have got their autumn dresses on as well and the leaves are starting to fall too. That is the thing i don't like about autumn but everything else I do as I prefer the cooler weather.

Well time to go now my favourite programme Dancing with Stars is on this evening.
See ya again soon.

My first stamping blog

This purple card was for a purple dragonfly card swap that I was in on one of my groups and I really liked what I had done here too.
I have decided to start another blog this is one especially for my stamping and card making and I am hoping to share with you cards that I am making as well.

Keep coming back for further updates here.

Cheers Carol
