About me

The holidays are over...

It's back to school tomorrow and it feels like this week has flown by! We've had a fantastic weekend with family and friends at Glenburn to celebrate my mother in laws 60th birthday.  It was such a beautiful sunny day and it was so nice to have one of the family's big get togethers there again. It's the first one since the horrible fires earlier in the year.

After last weeks much needed rain the place is looking greener and Bronwen has been busy replanting all her garden beds, so it's starting to look a little brighter. Although I'm sure it will be years before we see it as it was before.  There was around 60 - 70 people there yesterday and it was great to see the kids running around kicking the ball and everyone enjoying the day.

I've been working today :( so I promised the kids my undivided attention for Australian Idol (a weekly Kirsty and the kids ritual). Now that everyone's asleep and all ready for tomorrow I'm can sit down and finally post the cards that have been sitting on my desk for days... but better late than never!


This gorgeous stamp has the same name as my little girl, so it was a must have!  I just love fairies, so much so that I even have a tattoo. It think it's because they look so sweet and innocent but really they're a little bit mischievous underneath!  It's a fairly simple card, I'm still just playing with my ever growing collection of copics (favourite new toy much??)

As a side note; at the insistence of my seven year old I've just got Kate Miller Heidke's new CD, not bad at all, if you haven't already heard it it's definitely worth a listen! Kudos to the kid for liking stuff a little left of centre:-) Now on to the next card...

I love this little guy! This stamp was responsible for a 'should I, shouldn't I' that seemed to go on for ages. As you can see I caved and bought it.  When I see it stamped, why oh why did I even think twice!


Now that everything's back to normal I hope to have some more time to stamp. My dear friends Bron and Dee are coming on Tuesday for a long overdue bad food and stamping night!  We're always hopeful of creating at least one card but the talking always seems to get in the way LOL.  Be sure to visit again soon and see if we actually come up with anything!

til next time, hugs
