Pinwheel Christmas Card

Hi Everyone

How do you like this card I made it last week using a pinwheel design I had learned to make in first class at school.  I have used Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Very Vanilla and Basic Black card stock.  I have used a Antique Brad and some holly punched shapes.  Old Olive striped grosgrain ribbon makes a perfect background for A Gift for You stamp from the Beautiful Season stamp set.  I mounted this on Cherry Cobbler and fixed into place with a dimensional.  A little gold cord finishes it off nicely.

What do you think of this one?  If you would like to know how to make this and many other cards for all occasions please dont hesitate to call me on (02) 9727 9384 or mobile 0401 459 486.   My email contact is

Hello Again

Sorry there is no picture to show you this time but I have had a few personal things to attend to lately.  Firstly, my brother suffered a mild stroke and I flew to Brisbane to be with him.  He is okay now but while I was there I took his car and drove to Toowoomba to meet a lovely talented and hospitable lady named Ruth Clarke.  Yes the one and only Ruthy.  I sat in her craft room and the whole room engulfed me.  She has her lessons in there and the walls are beautifully layed out with Stampin, Up products all created beautifully into lovely projects. 

Thank you Ruthy for a lovely day.

On returning to Sydney I received a call advising me that my cousin Beverly had passed away in Port Macquarie so I flew up there and attended the funeral yesterday.  While I was there I met so many family members and new cousins.  I was told 'now that we have found you we are not letting you go'.  What a wonderful 'new' family I have found.  Thank you all in Port Macquarie.

So now back home and I am madly trying to make Christmas cards and heaps of other things.  So wish me luck and I will be here again soon with some projects to show you.

Bauble in a Window Card

This card is a pretty design another from Valita .  It reminds me of a shop window with a decorative bauble hanging.  The card is Real Red and Old Olive in colour.  The Whisper White card stock is stamped with the Baroque Motifs large background stamp.  A window topper of DSP is cut with the Scallop Edge Border  punch and fixed with dimensionals.  A bow of Real Red satin ribbon was glued to the DSP.  The Delightful Decorations stamp was stamped twice.  The middle of the bauble is punched out with a circle punch and fixed with a dimensional onto the larger punched shape made using the Ornament Punch.   A rhinestone is fixed to the middle for a little bling.  A small hole is punched in the top and some gold cord is threaded through and glued underneath the DSP.

This card and many more can be made during my Christmas Card Classes.  Please call me on (02) 9727 9384 or 0401 459 486 for more details.
