More Birthdays

Judy Hawkins and Wendy Green celebrated their birthdays recently. I used the milk caton die with the bird punch to make treat boxes and filled them with matching ribbon. I had to make 3 more. You just can't have enough treats.

Birthday Owl

I was just having a play with my new owl punch and voila it turned into my sister-in-law's birthday present.
It's her birthday tomorrow, happy birthday Kay. Sorry but your present is going to be late as usual. I have also made 6 matching cards that fit into our favourite divided pizza box.

This Sunday we will be making our 6 Christmas cards in 2 hours.  (Stamp-a-Stack) All of the hard work has been done for you. Everything has been cut up and is just waiting for you. It is also Judy Hawkins' birthday. Come along and make the cards. Please bring a plate of food to share. Don't worry if this time does not suit. Just contact me to make another appointment.
Here is another sample from the Stack.

Birthday Bakery

Tissue Boxes for next week's class

I know that most of you have seen these but I thought I'd remind you. We will be constructing the boxes but the decoration will be up to you. Why not opt for Designer Series Paper for your first set.
The cost will be $20 without the tissues (you supply your own) or $25 with the tissues.
Dates: 19, 20, 21, 24, 26, 27 October

For those who aren't into construction I have designed a set of cards using the hostess set Birthday Bakery. Same dates as above.
Just let me know which class and when you'd like to attend.

More photos from the Castle

I have been struggling with Blogger but this morning I sorted out two problems. I'll add more photos from our trip to Macadamia Castle.

Clever Kids

I had a lovely morning yesterday with Cathy and her daughters Laura and Sarah. Cathy did a great job with her Dasher cards and the girls did the notebooks from Lesson 19. I decided to spoil them and let them christen my owl punch. We spent some time discussing colour and lay out and then the girls were let loose. I was so impressed with their design I thought you'd like it too.

A closer look at Dasher

I thought you'd like a closer look at a couple of the cards in lesson 20. I really like the colour combinations. What do you think?
Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake (Kraft), Soft Suede, Basic Grey,

Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla

A day with the girls at Macadamia Castle

We were both very happy to see the girls, Ruby and Jemima, after their holiday in Cairns. We drove straight down to Judy's for morning tea and then off to the castle. We had a great day. The girls really liked the mice and rats (yuck) but I liked the possums. We ended a great day at Mumma's with prawn cutlets, chicken, chips and apple pie!!!
