A few more items Added to my Etsy Shop

Well I forgot to check on my expired listings, and lo and behold I found two or three cards that I still had and was able to renew.

If you have a moment, come on over to my etsy shop and check them out.

I'm working hard on my custom ordered wedding album for a friend right now and haven't had a chance to list or design any new cards. But I expect to be finished the album in a week or so, so check back here and I'll let you see a sneek peek of the album when it's done.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

Take care,

Can You Believe it......I'm on YOUTUBE!!!!

Hi there, been a busy couple of days lately and haven't had much of a chance to blog!

Guess what!!! A wonderful friend I met an the Etsy message board, Paula, better known as UxCritter, made a video for my Etsy card shop and put it up on YouTube, how exciting is that!!!! She is super talented, so if you'd like the check out the video she made for my shop, here's the link

Please go and have a peek and tell me what you think, I'd be thrilled to hear any comments!

Been busy here running around with hubby and trying to organize the house, so I haven't had a heck of a lot of time lately to create some new cards. But I'm hoping to get back to creating next week.......crossing my fingers for luck!

And don't forget, you can also check out my Stampin' Up! website for some fantastic rubber stamps! The link is on the top right hand side of my blog.

Got to run, kids are calling, it's family time!

Talk to you again soon,

Hand made Gift Bag

I die cut this cute little gift bag from sturdy packing or wrapping paper. I'm really into the 'kraft' type paper right now. It's something a little different for me and was so pleased with it that I decided to put it up for sale in my shop. I think it's the perfect little bag for jewellery or gift cards. The bag is approx 3.75 x 6 inches. As you can tell I'm also still into the plum/berry colours right now too.

Visit my Etsy shop if you are interested in purchasing this pretty little handmade gift bag.

Oh and don't forget, if you love stamping as much as I do, check out my Stampin' Up! website, the link is on the right at the top of the can even order online right through my website. So exciting!

Take care,

Breast Cancer Awareness Cards for Charity

Loopy, this is for you!!!

Another friend who I've met through the message boards is doing the 60K walk for Breast Cancer in 2009 and I wanted to try and help her earn some donations for this wonderful cause. I decided to design a greeting card for her, and this is the result. I've made 10 cards in all so far. If they are a success, I'll gladly contribute more.

Just listed the cards in my Etsy shop now, so if you like you can go take a look at them, and maybe even buy one...... :)
I've always wanted to do something for this worthy cause, aside from just making a monetary donation, and now I'm very thrilled to have met Loopy and thought of a way of using my craft to help others.

Take care and thanks for visiting,
