Cards cards and more cards

Here is another card that I made at retreat recently at the end of August and yes I have rotated it to have them looking the right way (in too much of a hurry last time). Apologies to those that had to view the last lot on the side, also a few simple bookmarks using the left over scraps and jumbo eyelets.
Happy crafting

A weekend at retreat

My Dads birthday card - happy birthday Poppa Doug! sorry about the postioning. The arrow was a cuttlelebug die which I purchased from Paula at Papercraft and Model Haven in Wanganui. If you are interested in this die please don't hesitate to contact Paula on 06 3489020 and don't forget to mention that you saw it on my blog.
Recently I went to a retreat at Otaki with about 30 ladies. The most stress we had was to put our coffee mug under the urn. At Bridge Lodge we do nothing but craft or shopping if you want to hit the factory shops in the town.
It was a great weekend and it is organised by Hare to Scrap N Stamp from Levin, Papercraft and Model Haven in Wanganui and Palmerston North Stamp n Scrap in Palmerston North. The next one is the last weekend in March 2010 and I have already booked the babysitter as its just too much fun to miss. If you interested in attending please don't hesitate to contact me at and I can pass the contact details to secure your place at the next one. Trust me it is so worth it to have a weekend away crafting, you feel totally relaxed when you return and the ladies that go are tops.

Here are a couple of cards I made for a stationery suitcase. I will post more tomorrow for you to have a look at
Happy crafting

Happy Fathers Day to Savannah's Dad

Today is Fathers Day and Savannah selected 7 photos of her and Steve to put in her mini fold up wallet that we had made. She then wrote in her own words a few lines on each page to him expressing how she felt about him.

We also made a wallet out of chocolate chip and put vouchers and money in it so Steve and Savannah could go out for lunch together.

Needless to say father was very pleased indeed with our efforts and had a great lunch at Burger King with Savannah
