Look what happens when I am child free.

What are slacker I have been lately. Sorry to all my devoted bloggers for not keeping up with more regular entries. It has been a super busy 2 weeks with Stampin' Up and my craft classes.

A little over a few weeks ago now my lovely husband sent me away for some peace and quiet at our caravan, without the kids. I had such a lovely, relaxing time and was able to catch up with loads of card making and scrapbooking, and not to mention girlie movies as well. Luckily for me the weather was beautiful also. So I thought I would share with you all some of the cards I was able to complete whilst on my relaxing weekend.

This is the first set that I made which I must admit I CASED from an idea I saw in Stamping and Papercraft Magazine. Such a simple set using Whisper White; Choc. Chip; Old Olive; Really Rust and Soft Sky Inks and Card Stock. The Stamp sets were Wonderful Words and Priceless.

This is the second set I made and once again it was CASED from SAPM. These were a little more complicated and involved the use of more tools but I had so much fun fiddling with my tools to make them. I have used Purely Pomegranate; Basic Black; Whisper White and Soft Sky Card stock and inks. The Stamp sets are Polka Dot Punch and So Many Sayings. I have also used some Hodge Podge Hardware in Pewter and some Whisper White Ribbon. The images have been stamped with Versamark and Embossed with Clear embossing powder. So much fun!!!

Finally these two aren't part of a set but instead are just 2 cards that I had a go at. One of them is using the my new set called Loads of Love which was chosen by my 3 year old son Lucas. It is such a great set for so many different uses. The extension set Loads of Love Accessories is definately on my wish list for the future.
The second card shown here was made using the set from the new catalogue called Greetings Eight and is pretty much as is described in it's title.
Both sets are outline sets and I have used the inks and an Aquabrush to watercolour them. Have I mentioned before how much I love to watercolour!!!!
So there you have it. The fruits of my relaxed labour - hardly labour though.
If you would like to get a few friends together to have a class and make one of these card sets then contact me to make a date. Usually a min. of 4 people and max. of 8 is good and the class will cost $15/person.
Cheers for now.
