It’s the first day of winter already!!!  And it was cold enough too!!!  I didn’t defrost until about 2pm!!

Although I was cold, I did manage to make a couple of gorgeous cards today.  My new favourite stamp set is Elements of Style.  I love the flowers!!  I have cased this card from Rachael Hecker, a fellow SU Demonstrator.  I inked the main flower stamp using the markers.  I love this technique, looks great and is so easy to do.

I have also fallen in love with black satin ribbon.  It looks so glamorous and silky and shiny!!  I’ve done it in two colour combinations, Real Red and Basic Black, and Certainly Celery and Rose Red.  I hope you enjoy!!

I’m at Stanthorpe today baby sitting my nieces for a few days, so I’ve pre-scheduled this post.

I’ve cased this one from fellow SU! demonstrator, Annette Sullivan.

There is a very talented SU! Demonstrator who does amazing things with punches!!  She has done a rose using the Owl punch.  Check out her video here to see how to make it.  I did end up with glue all over my fingers but the results are beautiful!!  I did spritz my rose with champagne mist shimmer paint but you can’t really tell in the photo.

I meant to post earlier today but my niece, Leah, had to have emergency surgery today to have her appendix out so I went to visit her in Toowoomba.  She’s doing much better now but the doctor said it was pretty bad.  I made her a cute card this morning, inspired by Kerry Bunting.  Looking at Kerry’s blog, I think she likes the owl punch!!!  It is pretty cute!!!
