One of the girls at work is turning 21 tomorrow, Wendy (my boss) asked me if I could make a card for her, but with everything that has been happening of late, I have been running WAY behind! So when I finished my swaps this morning and got them in the post, I thought I had better sit down and get this card made to take to work this arvo. I had the base already made, as I was originally going to use the Scribble wheel for the base of my Swaps (because I ordered Pink Piroutte DP but it went into backorder!!! Grrrrr ~ by they way that's my new catch phrase!! grrrrr) Anyway I had to come up with a plan, and after rolling in Versamark and lining it up rolling it again, then embossing it ~ it seemed way too much so I put it aside and went with an easier option!! (Still time consuming but a bit easier than all the rolling). I cut the '21' out with my Cricut Machine using Alphalicious, set on Short Stack at 3", added the scallop strip and the Pink Pirouette Ribbon, a couple left over flowers from my Swap cards and Whalah!! a 21st card!! I am just going to go find a greeting to go on the inside and then it's all done ready to go to work with me. Now I just need to do Eilish's Birthday card, I am late, her birthday was last week, but I will get it done, then I am all caught up ~ sort of ~ I have an absolute mess of a craft desk to clean up, 2 boxes of Stampin Up Product to sort, mount and get to my friends, sort my stamps in to 2 sections Retired & Current and do the same with my DP and then I should be right!! (Grrrrr, I just wanna play with my goodies!!! not clean and organise.....sob)

Ella & Taneika (Note the Twilight Book!! Another Addict!)
Ella's 'Camera Face'
Owen's "I said..Don't take my Picture" Look!! (Whoops!! Too Late!!)
And Finally Jayden & Taneika
So that's it, another visit over and gone!! Ella has grown so much, I had to be careful picking her up as I did my back again the week before!! (What timing! grrr) So it was limited cuddles, as she is running around alot and doesn't like to just sit on Aunties knee, there is way too much exploring to do! Lol.
Well I am now off to finish my Unconvention Swaps, I just need to stick the 'recipe' to the back and package them up ready to post. I also need to make a card for my SOS Hotel Roommate Maggie (Whom I am yet to email and introduce myself to) and get that sent off with the little gift I made. More about Unconvention later, it is all still so secretive. But in a nutshell it is a Stampin Up Convention for those of us who are not attending the 'actual' convention that is being held in Canberra next week. There are around 30 of us who are all meeting online for chats, make & takes, swaps and even an Awards Dinner!! Sounds like fun, so I thought I'd join in. I will share my Swap and the projects we make after the event.
Till next time, Happy Stamping!!

Hi there!! I am feeling very sore today :-( My back, which I put out last week is still very sore, so amongst, resting, strolling around the house and heat pillows, I have been having a play, though I cannot sit for too long!! I went to get in the car to take the boys to a friends place and found I can't lift my leg high enough to get in the KIA!! Oops!! Anyway, I have made up these little cards so I thought I'd share. They are using last years In Colours, but the new Fresh Cuts stamp Set. I love Chocolate Chip!! In every shape and form!! Yummm. I sort of used the Rock & Roll Technique. I first inked up the square stamp in the colour and the just inked up each edge with the Chocolate Chip. It's a bit big to 'roll'. Well that's it from me, time to do a lap of the house and heat up the old back again!!
Materials Used - Stampin Up! - Stamp Set - Fresh Cuts, Sanded. Cardstock & Inks - Wild Wasabi, Blue Bayou, Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White. Accessories - Chocolate Chip 1/4" Grosgain Ribbon, Oval Punches.
