I wanted to say thank you to my boss. She generously allowed me to do a study day and worked on the ward so I could go. I wrote her a poem and made her this little box which I put in 4 little bags of multi coloured chocolate drops and 2 coffee bags.
the poem went like this:
Thank you, doesn’t seem enough,
When you went through, all that stuff
Just so I could say,
“I’ve done a culture safety day”.
I heard you worked into the night,
Because the staffing was so tight,
And then came back at 3am to say,
I’ll help out until its day.
I’ve spent time and made you a gift
In the hope it will give you a lift,
And to let you know, I appreciate
All the trouble you went to, on that date.
This is a brayer card I did tonight on CA. Brayering does make lovely sky or sea. I used the Stampin up stamp pads of Daffodil Delight, Peach Parfait and Tangerine Tango to do the brayeringThe snowman is a cricut cut from the Gingerbread cartridge. The trees and butterflys are small punches

At Crafters Anonymousthere was a October challenge to use Real red, Tempting turquoise crumb cake and white. This is what I came up with. I haven't done any challenges for a while but I thought I would give this one a go. I used Real red, tempting turquoise crumb cake and craft white stampinup ink pads and markers. I cut the pieces of the die and water painted them using the stampinup inks and water brush. I brayered the background with certainly celery and wild wasubi and the sky in bashful blue and marina mist and sponged so saffron in the area behind the letterbox. The stamps are from SU and I use the techniques of stamping off, and double stamping to get the trees (lovely as a tree), glittered the grass and used cherry cobler dazzeling details for the centre of the flowers. The sentiment is from curvey verses. I inked the edges of the front layer and layered it flat to the card base of read red. I used dimentionals to pop up the letterbox cat and grass as well as the envelope which has fallen from the box. the butterfly just hopped on at the last minute and seemed to be in just the right place.

I went to the Stampinup Heartfelt event in Auckland and we learnt a lot of new techniques and were lucky enough to have 4 projects to do as well. This is a little box with wee cards in and is made from the StampinUp tag die. I have used the flower die to make the flower and have used a dalia in the incolour gumball green for the centre

This is just the one lantern but it has a tea light that changes colour. I have tried to capture the different colours in the light box with the lights on.
These pics are with the lightbox lights off and I have tried to show the different colours it shows with the tealight. It looks so pretty. It is made with the StampinUp Petal cone die and Just Believe stamp set.
