Flip Flop Card

Well I'm not sure what you'd call this card but I really love cards that have a wee twist & this is a card inside a card to me  - the original I found on the fabulous Nancy Riley's blog - where she calls it's a 2-way open card.

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Cottage Garden
Ink: Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz
Paper: Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Sunny Garden DSP (retired)
Punches: Word window,1-3/4" scallop circle, 1-3/8: circle, 1-1/4" circle & the flower is hand cut using our fabulous paper snips (I've had a few comments that it looks punched out when seen in real life)

Well it's a gorgeous Spring day in Auckland today so I hope everyone has a super weekend.
Happy stampin' in the interim

Hello My Friends

Hi all I'm not really sure where the days & months go but I'm going to try really hard to blog at least once a week in time for the for the weekend for starters for a catch up - as I'm sure you all know the new IB+C has launched from SU! & I don't know how they do it but they manage to surpass themselves everytime.

This was one of the wee projects that attendees at my Launch made recently, a covered notepad. I just love this colour combo - it's so bright & cheery; Pacific Point, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight & it uses the new My Friend stamp set, which I love.

Well the Rugby World Cup has kicked off in NZ & last Friday was a frenetic day from dawn to very late for me so I thought I'd just share a collage of my day's experiences!

Hope your weekend goes well I have a rugby match to attend tonight - go the AB's
