October Rain!

Isn't it lovely to have rain? Even though we have been enjoying the lovely warm Spring weather - having a lot of rain fall this morning and even now as I write this - is just fantastic. Heading to another summer drought is certainly not particularly pleasant. Great weather for getting things done though!

First I took the boys out to the local shops to get a few things. Big boy Luke had cabin fever - so he was happy with the opportunity to run around the park, enjoy a chocolate milkshake and look for magpies. He didn't like all the political candidates hanging around the entrance to the shops - and boy there were a lot of them! Can't say I blame him :)

Anyway, after all our chores and errands - I found the time to finish the set of gift cards that I made last night using the Fun & Fast Notes set from Stampin' Up!. This stamp set makes it easy. I cut each card to size, stamped the image with black StazOn® and coloured the images with markers. I even made envelopes to match and a little box to hold them in. I will be prepared for the next present I have to give!

There are 10 cards in all. Contact me if you would like to get your own Fun & Fast Notes set or the template to make the little gift box. It's such a versatile little set!

Sometimes I get so excited by the Spring Mini Catalogue from Stampin' Up! that you forget about some of the more "routine" stamps in their main catalogue - the Idea Book & Catalogue. If you have your own copy - pick it up and have a flick through again. You'll be pleasantly surprised by what stamp sets are available and what you can do with them!

There are several ways to get your own copy of the Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalogue if you want one - email me for more information: carolyn@stampwithme.com.au - or - You can look at the online version at http://www.stampinup.com/ :)
