Bye Miss H...

Here's a little card made after a little web-scouting, for Miss 6's student teacher.

Frankly, I was coming down with flu and figured the 'smudged' white craft ink could be mistaken for genuine chalk messiness!?!  Oh my, how my perfectionist mind had been addled by germs!!

Between Miss 6 and I, we stuck it all together and delivered it via Miss 7, before both collapsing into bed for a few days!!

A little extra for today....

Here's an extra card using the Extreme Elements set from SU - a card that didn't quite pass the Captain A 'Man-card-test'!  I don't know... I thought it'd be ok for a boy?

post-BCD workshop...

As a delicious friend put it... My car and I had a disagreement about when was the appropriate time to leave the house... my car chose to leave earlier... without me... but with kids.

We laugh and guffaw about BCD already (BCD = Bad Crash Day), but really... it was horrible.

In my attempts to prove everything was perfectly alright and nothing hurt and I truly am a big-brave-bear... I ran my Birthday Cards workshop!  What a twat!

... looking at the photos below, my mojo was definitely left in my car which was (and indeed is STILL at time of print!) being lovingly fixed in l'hopital d'automobile **sniff**

Stamp Camp - One last favourite!

Kez 'Owl Queen' Bunting shared this GOR-JUS card with us all which really does hold its place as a favourite from the weekend....
nite nite Stamp Camp - I shall dream of you always xxxx

Stamp Camp ... Free Time!

OK - so it may not look like we got that much free time during our weekend fun, but we did... and it was mostly spent eating!! ha ha!  However, I did get to make a couple of cards outwith the amazing workshops ...

Honestly, these pictures where taken one minute apart!  But the day went from balmy 29 to 19 degrees in the space of about 30 seconds!!  It then proceeded to rain for about 3 days and since then, my gorgeous family have been knocked about by swine flu! ho hum!

Both cards are using the new SU set, Under The Big Top, with card 2 using the matching (and adorable) DSP series.  Loving this new stuff!!

Stamp Camp Colour Challenge

Rob & Kez set a seemingly simple colour challenge - Daffodil Delight, Early Expresso and Whisper White.

Well, it proved a huge challenge to my gorgeous yet yellow-challenged buddy, Sue! tee hee!

I chose the 'teacher's pet' route and plumped for the Owl, in honour of our lovely muse, Kez Bunting xxxx

Stamp Camp Stamp Set Challenge

No, there's more, really, there's more!!!

Kez and Rob set us a couple of challenges through the weekend too and one was to make a card / page / whatever with the stamp set provided, who's name I know not and may have even psychologically forgotten!!

Here are my three efforts, slowly liking each one a little more than the one before!?!

This last one is an 8x8 page (with space ready for annual Santa pic!), in which I used SU's glitter glass for the first time - I.  LOVE.  IT.  Oooh, it's so chunky and sparkly, I just know I'm going to use pots and pots this Christmas!

Stamp Camp Techniques

We were treated to two awesome technique workshops, faux mother of pearl and faux tiles...

Stamp Camp 3D projects

The 3D projects at camp were awesome and 'my ladies' have already asked to do BOTH!

They won't receive such fantastic tutelage but we'll have a good laugh trying!!

WAHOO for Stamp Camp!

And now, Wow, wow and wow again!

I was lucky enough to be invited to my first ever Stamp Camp, hosted by the ever-inspiring Kerry Bunting and Robyn Irving.

These amazing women had put together workshops (3d projects, fancy folds & technique workshops), shoebox projects, challenges as well as arranging for the Stamp Fairy to visit us each night with some beautiful treats!

It was an amazing weekend with hilarious stories!

So, what to share first?  I'll start with the shoebox projects - creations whereby everything needed to complete them, is found in the one box!

Here are my versions of Robyn's projects...

And my efforts on Kerry's creations...

These last two cards are right up my street - so modern and crisp; just love them!
