Happy New Year!!

I hope you all had a great New Year and are enjoying the school holidays. We have started swimming lessons for the kids this week. One week at the pool and 2 weeks down the beach at Emu Point. Hopefully the weather will continue to be sunny while we are down the beach. The Albany weather can be a bit tempermental, so while it may be summer there is no guarantee of sun!

My New Year's resolution is to send more happy mail! To do this I promise to send a few Birthday cards each month to members of my ESAD group.  I made 4 cards last night and will send them to the next 4 birthday reminders on the group. I will make a few cards at the start of each month and then keep posting them til I run out. If you would like a card just email me your birth date and I will add you to the list.

These are the cards I have made for this month. See that piece of embossing down the bottom of each card? That is a SU! Big Shot embossing folder made exclusively for Stampin' Up! Althought not yet available you can expect to see them in the next mini catalogue!

  1. Hi Carole! Thank you so very much, I received my beautiful birthday card in the mail today! I love that stamp set, and the colours are among my favourites at the moment! You are very talented... I will be stopping by to check out your creative works again soon! I love the embossing folder to match... I hope that makes in into our next mini with the Big Shot!!
    Thanks again, and Best Wishes,
