Stamps: StampIt UM, Kaiser Clear Stamps
Card: Bazzill, White Gloss
Inks: Adirondack Alcohol Inks, StazOn Black
Other: Black Brads, DSFT, Ribbon

I am off to town today as soon as I am rescued! I went to start the car a little while ago and hubby had left the key turned slightly on! (Yes, it WAS him, coz the first thing I did was move the seat forward to accommodate my little legs...bit deficient in that area, I am!) Hence, the battery is flat and I am waiting for a decent time of day for one of the men around here to come and rescue me and kick start the car with jumper leads. ( Hubby, of course , is nowhere to be found. He went fishing at 3.30am!) (I had been up really early to take myself and my puppy for a walk...I like to go near dawn to try and beat the heat!)

I found a scrap of alcohol ink background yesterday, sequested myself in my dungeon (aka art room) and quickly made this little number up. I wanted to try out my new Xmas stamp set from Stamp It....found here which I recently ordered in for my little business. I also was keen to try out the Kaiser Clear Stamp Set... the first I have ever bought (as previously their wood mounted stamps were well below par in quality and I stepped away from them) TEST results: They seem to be on par with other clear stamps and the one I used stamps very clearly!

Blogger 3 Challenge 2

Stamps: StampIt UM Holly Swirl 3878E, TAC wording
Card: Kaiser Double Sided Patterned Paper, Bazzill Card
Other: Brad, White Grosgrain Ribbon inked with Chalk Pad, Kindy Glitz, Diamantes, Nestabilities Circles, Creative Memories Circle Cutting System

Oh whacky tabacky it IS BUSY!

I have just been able to sit for the shortest space of time to whiz this little card up for our challenge. This little flap card is just so simple to make and will come in handy for all the strip stuff we get left over when cutting down 12 x 12 sheets of card. I could not locate my circle coluzzle template...Now scratching my head as to where it could be, so tried with the CM circle cutter...Not the best result but better than leaving the underflap a straight edge.

It is soooo hot here again today. My aircons are working overtime and I actually begrudge having visitors coz it means I have to surface from the cool air rooms! Maybe we will get another refreshing storm!!!!

Cheers everyone!

Afternoon ladies,

I have been as busy as this week. Magella, my eldest moves tomorrow into Sarina, all going well. I have been to town a couple of times and each trip means a day of no stamping. Of course, on the weekends, the hubby usually wants to have a barbie or three...

Today, it is slightly less chaotic...The pest lady is nearly done...No more ants, cockies or spiders for a while...Bliss!!!!!! She also redid the termite bases, as a top up measure.

While she has been hard at work debugging my home, I made this little number up.

Cheers, Michelle

Clearing Out Stuff

I am having a major cleanout. All stamps are brand new, come from a smoke free and are dead cheap compared to normal retail price...

Postage is extra but exactly what it costs to send. Keep a lookout...I will be putting more stuff up yet!

Xmas From Scraps 2

Good morning everyone on this fine (unfortunately) morning! We did not receive the promised storm over the weekend...Hubby is out setting up the irrigator for the cane again this morning.

I did do this quick card up using scraps again, late yesterday! I did get caught up yesterday on the phone and having to go out to have Sunday arvo drinks, so did not achieve what I had in mind to achieve...But today is another day, they say!

Materials are basically the same as yesterday's post.
