Well, Tonight my husband informed me collingwood was playing and he was off to watch half of it with his dad. I thought bonus peace and quiet. I knew I had a card I wanted to make for a dear friend whom I used to work with, who has just retired. So I sat down and made the following with 2 matching gift boxes. One for Maiya to give to her and one from me. Filled with yummy chocolates. :-)

Well it was like Christmas here on Tuesday, Well for me anyway!!! My Stampin Up kit arrive and my gorgeous Hubby was kind enough to bring it home to me so i could play. I didn't get any stamping done in the end but I got all my stamps mounted etc and can't wait to play on the weekend. I have some ideas I want to play with and a card in mind for a lady that is retiring from my old work and we are having b'fast on Monday.

I had a little bit of time to myself today in between my nesting phase and made these cards

I saw the above card on splitcoasters, can't remember who it was by (sorry) I did change things a little bit.
Card stock: Sahara Sand, Baja breeze, Choc chip and also I think the Dsp was from the afternoon tea series but i may just have to check that
Ink: Baja Breeze, Choc chip and creamy caramel
Ribbon is the double stitched grosgrain choc chip

This Card I made just because I wanted to fiddle with some different flower stamps. I will have to come back and put more details. I got the Idea from Stephanie Luhrman. I really love this card
This is an anniversary card for my grandparents, once again the flower pot i'm really loving. Using the polka dot punches stamps that was available in the Sale-a-bration catalogue

Cleaning out my Cupboard

Well last night I decided to clean out my craft cupboard, in preparation for my exciting arrival of my Stampin Up kit that I will now have to find room for Woot Woot!!!

In my cleaning (maybe its nesting), I found my Scrapbook that I have nearly finished but not touched for so long, from a trip to Japan in 2002. I thought I might share a couple of pages, Before I show you some cards I have been working on today.
I have lots more but this is just a snippet. I will be back later with my cards. The battery just died in the camera, Time to charge up for "just in case" Don't want to get caught out with not having a camera for the hospital. Which also means i must back up photos and clear our memory card. Oh so much to do.......
