It's a small world!

Here is one I did on the weekend. I don't know why but Christmas
Cards always seem like a chore to me which is a bit silly, but that' s
how I always feel. I know every one loves getthing them so will
have to get into action. The right hand side of this card is pink, but
has faded in the scan shot. I love snowman stamps, as they
have a lot of charachter, but it feels weird doing them.

The Snowman is an Uptown Rubber Stamp.

Here is a copy of a card I made on the weekend for a friends birthday.

I don't mind it, but I feel like there is something missing. Any suggestions.

The hen is from SU. The paper is wrapping paper.....

I was going to get in and try and do a series of cowboy cards as have quite

a few different types. Got one made last night, but got an email from hollylogic

at SCS inviting me to join in in the Double Dog Dare Challenge. So might have to spend

a couple of days on "DOG" cards instead. Anyway........this isn't getting tea cooked, or cards made (I wish) or clothes hung out.

I got a lovely Welcome to Stampin' Up email from Jean Mc Kenzie today.
It was funny because, I am originally from Jean's area in CQ , and after a few emails
backwards and forwards, Jean knows my parents and my twin brother and
I am sure we have met at some stage in the past. She also used to work
with my Aunty Maxine. Thanks for the welcome Jean it was lovely.I had a look at Jeans site and she makes the most beutiful cards, she isa very talented lady and her site is well worth a look. I have added a link to Jeans Blog so go and have a look, I'm sure you will enjoy them as much as I did.

G'day Kristy
Well talk about a small world ... I know Jean too but only through stamping and man have we had some fun here and there but I live in the big smoke, between Bisbane & Gold Coast. Strangely enough my eldest daughter worked on Camfield station many years ago as a Nanny/Housekeeper. I know Camfield is a long way from Katherine but that was her base to get out there. Our son is also a country bloke too working on Mt Magaret Station here in western Qld.
Love your blog and your cards ... all the best ... OOroo ... Bethel

Hello Kristy, Thank you so much for your very kind comments [blush] LOL!! It sure is a small world! I look forward to seeing more of your work and photos. Your cards are really lovely - aren't they just so much fun to make?? Not enough hours in a day for me!
