Convention, Challenge Card.....and more!

How are you all?
I hope you're keeping warm in this freezing weather!
Last night I celebrated being able to stay at home in the warm by taking part in a Card Challenge! It was lots of fun (thanks ladies!). One of the challenges was a colour challenge - to make a card using the colours Crumb Cake, Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip. I made a birthday card!

Wild Wasabi felt a bit bright next to the other colours so I sanded the Designer Series Paper I had to give it a more muted tone. I love the way the Beveled Windowpane really highlights the sentiment!


It's a gorgeous clear cold day here today, so I've photographed my card outside in the lavender. I had a little helper - I think he approved!

I've been a having some fun lately creating cards which are not my usual style. This one, using the stamp set Artistic Etchings was a lot of fun! 

Back in May I went to Stampin' Up Convention down in Melbourne. I had a fabulous time! I learned lots of new things and was so glad to meet people I'd previously only met online, as well as catching up with old friends. There are lots of things to show you when our new catalogue comes out in a few months - and so many new things to share already! I was surprised to see this photo of me with Beth (my upline), Amanda (my downline) and Marelle and Jo (two very lovely ladies!) on Shelli Gardner's blog!

Shelli (Stampin' Up! founder) wrote a great post about this years Convention which you can read on her blog. I highly recommend her blog for all kinds of inspiration! There are lots of lovely photos from Convention there!

 These last two cards are some simple pretty cards I've been sharing with people lately! The little cupcake card has lots of sparkly goodness and the thankyou card has some vintage sweetness. If you'd like to make one of these cards with me (or any other I've posted today!) let me know!
