Petal Party

If you weren’t there, then you really missed out on a good afternoon on Saturday.  We made 16 (yes, that does say sixteen) cards in the afternoon, all using the Petal Party Simply Scrappin’ Kit.  We had lots of fun and had heaps left over from the kit to take home for more card making or scrapbook pages, or whatever takes your fancy really 🙂  I just love these kits, everything goes together beautifully, the cardstock, Designer Series Papers and gorgeous Die Cut Stickers, to make beautiful cards or scrapbook pages.

I won’t show you all 16 of the cards we made, just a couple.  But if you did missed out, make sure you have a look at my Upcoming Events page or give me a call or email to make sure you don’t miss out on any more of the classes that are coming up.

Once again I find myself apologising for the being MIA for so long, but I have had quite a lot going on.  I recently found out the my Mum has had a return of the cancer that she had removed around 4 years ago only it has spread into other areas of her body.  She has decided not to have treatment for it, mainly because she saw how sick treatment made my Dad before he passed away.  So we are busy doing all those things that we try not to think too much about at other times, like updating wills etc and making sure everything is in order.  It is a difficult time for her (and the whole family) as she lives on her own, and we don’t know how long it will be before she gets too ill and weak to be on her own.

On a more positive note, lots of stamping and workshops have been on the go, which is giving me some good things to focus on as well. And as always, my Mum is very supportive of my stamping business and would want me to continue through thick and thin.

But I do have lots of cards etc to share with you so I will try to get back real soon and post some more.

In the mean time, happy stamping!
