tomorrow I fly to Australia for a few days in the Gold Coast before heading up to Brisbane for Stampin' Up!'s annual convention. I am SO excited about it!!! SO I have been busy getting stuff for it etc and so I haven't been crafting so I have nothing to share with you at the mo.
I may be able to access my blog from there and if I can I will try and post something. Meanwhile you can STILL SHOP using my online 24/7 shop - see top left window!.
Products will be sent directly to you too!!!
So see you in 11 days if not before!!! xx

On Monday Dee Sturgeon taught us this double pocket card on Crafters Anonymous. To create one of the pockets I used the DSP from the This and That bundle and cut around the images on it. The other pocket I made by cutting around a stamped and heat embossed image. The green is Gumball Green - I thought I would use it up as it's one of the colours that is going come 1st July!!

Another card using the same card map as yesterday - this one is for yet another family birthday - my eldest brother. We do have a stretch of birthday which finally finishes on Thursday! Other than my daughter I have all my 'blood' families birthdays in two weeks!!! So pleased it's over hee hee. I think my bank manager would probably agree too!
This one is made using the Ticket Due Builder punch and a couple of small oval and circle punches for the handle. I hope my brother enjoys it!

this card is a card I made for my brother who's birthday was at the end of last month. He LOVES his red wine and so I thought I would match his card to that. I used Bravo Burgundy and Always Artichoke along with Very Vanilla. Bravo Burgundy is one of the colours that is going with our Colour Refresh and so after 30 June it won't be seen again!
The 'map' of this card I cased DIRECTLY from a swap I received from Delys Cram. It is such a neat map that you can work so many ways. It's PERFECT for a good structured masculine card.
Hope you all had a lovely mothers day yesterday! I got spoiled with brekkie in bed, a bit of shopping with daughter, got my car cleaned by son and they both cooked dinner so a very nice day indeed! Below is a pic of my two babes - taken last year in during our holiday in Cairns. They don't often appear in the same photo - he still thinks you can get germs your his sister so gives her a wide birth usually! hehe

Here is the second Mothers Day card I made, this is for my mother-in-law. I enjoyed doing these pleats - they are done with a 5/8" & 1/4" pattern. You do need to add some extra DSP to the strip as a 12" strip won't do the whole card. I really like this Calypso Coral colour and are so pleased it's staying around!! Funny they've put it in 'subtles' group but hey as long as it stays! lol Personally I would of preferred Lucky Limeade to stay rather than bringing back Pear Pizzazz but who can't please everyone all of the time! I have posted the list of the new colours - if you LOVE some of the colours that are retiring you BETTER get in real QUICK to order you supplies as some of the products in those colours have already run out!!! email firstname.lastname@example.org

On Monday night Kristine McNickle taught this pleated card at our Crafters Anonymous class. I decided that it would make a great Mothers Day card. I have made two, so I will show you the other one tomorrow. I'm racing out the door but hopefully you can see the details on the photos.

Whilst this is the last of the chalkboard cards to share it was the first one I made. It was LOTS of fun to make and pick what stamps I wanted to use. I really enjoyed the free hand drawing around the sides too, as Miranda's mum would say 'such fun'!!!
