Ink: rich razzleberry, wisteria wonder
Stamp sets: just believe, so happy for you
Accessories: brayer, wisteria wonder ruffled ribbon, pearls
I was asked to create a thank you card for someone a few weeks ago. It was to thank a lady for having a group of friends (myself and my sister, included) around at her place to admire the christmas decorations she had put up in her home. This particular lady loves Christmas and it was a thrill to experience her amazing decorations with a group of friends a few weeks back.
I love how this card has come up - there's my brayer again! And I'm loving my new stamp set, Just Believe. I'm in awe of how the largest stamp can take up so much room on a card! On my project, I teamed up rich razzleberry with wisteria wonder, and the pearls just add that "wow" factor to the project. I added a white panel inside by stamping the smaller bunch of leaves from the 'Just Believe' stamp set in one bottom corner. Beautiful! The grateful recipient loved it :-)
I'm not sure when I'm going to get the chance to post again in the next few weeks, but want to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and New Year, and look forward to seeing you back here soon! I haven't forgotten my readers, or my blog - it's just been so busy to do much stamping. But I do have some exciting projects lined up, that I have been working on, to share with you when I get the chance to take pics, so stay tuned...

The Stampin' Up! team I am part of, Paper Divas, put on an all-day extravaganza for some of our clients, and you can see the lovely Paula and Rhonda doing their thing... We had a lot of fun and I'm pretty sure the ladies had a fabulous day getting creative!
I suprised myself by teaching a scrapbook page, and doing a WOW with the embossing resist technique - love, love, love! Really enjoyed showing the ladies some tips and tricks that I've learnt and passing on what I love doing - that's what Stampin' Up! is all about, after all :-)
On to preparing for a market this coming Sunday, here in Miramar, called Crafttea. Come along and have some afternoon tea and shop for those last-minute Christmas gifts!
