Briannan's card.. better late than never!

This is the card that Briannan made for her friend. Sorry its taken so long to post, but with Julian being so ill (had him up to the Dr's twice as his breathing was dreadful and he did not eat for 8 days and had a nice temp that whole time) I have gotten his flu, yeah, love getting sick and not being able to take anything for it with being pregnant. Ended up with losing my voice for 3 days as my throat was so sore and infected, still have the flu now. But Julian is having a sleep and I have had 5 minutes alone on the computer...
So here it is Briannan's card. I think that she did a top job on it.

pop up card using great friend and so swirly

I have poor Julian sick at the moment, think he must have picked up a cold somewhere in the last week poor darling. He has been up since early this morning coughing. Daddy and him are having a bit of a sleep so I took the opportunity to have a bit of a play. Briannan is going to a sleep over birthday party so we need a card. We both agreed on a pop up card. Now, I have to let you know that when I started designing the card we both agreed on what She wanted, well.. me being me, took over and created a card definately not suitable for a 12 year old. So as I am doing this blog entry Briannan has been left to herself to create the card that She wanted. After she is done I will post it on here...
This is the card shut so it fits into a standard aussie sized envelope. I used perfect plum c/s and versa marked in the so swirly roller... I know... sooooo unlike me lol! I have put two pink rhinestone brads on either side of the new Oval All punch set from the new mini... Only available until the end of November if you like it! I alo used chocolate chip ribbon on the c/sThis is what it looks like opened. I ued the butterfly from the Good Friend set, again, available from the mini until the end of november. I stamped it onto the ww base c/s in pretty in pink and than rock and rolled it on another sheet of ww c/s in perfect plum and chocolate chip and dimensionald (is that a word?) over the other butterfly. I also used the crop-a-dile to punch in an eyelet and threaded it with the same chocolate chip ribbon that I did on the base.

Workshops, classes... Christmas!

Wow, do I have a busy few months coming up!
As most of you know I have organised my first Christmas card workshop for the year. You make 8 Christmas cards for a cost of $25! BARGAIN! If you are interested in coming and would like to view the flier please let me know and I will send it to you. Dates for the first workshop are 5Th September 1 -3 at my house. The same class will be on the 19Th September from 2 - 4.
A great way to get a head start on Christmas!
I have the next two workshops dates booked in Octobers will be held on the 3rd from 1 -3 and on the 17th 2 -4. Novembers will be 7th from 1 - 3 and 21st from 2 -4. if you attend these classes and bring along a person that I have not met before you will also receive $5 off your next class.

After some consideration on days and times etc... My wonderful customers have agreed that it would be a great idea if I hold open nights at my house for everyone to come and use my inks, stamps, punches, rolls etc... If you have an unfinished project, or would just like to have a play with all the cool Stampin' Up! stuff, you are more than welcome to come. Cost is $5 per person and will be held on the last Wednesday of every month from 7pm - 830 pm. If you are interested in coming please let me know and I will give you all of the details.

Mater Mothers Christmas Card Workshops... As you all know, our Paper Angel's group hold Christmas card events annually to help support with donations, the mater mothers bereavement programme, The official flier will be out some time this week with full details, but if you would like to get in early and secure your place the Pine Rivers workshop will be held on Sunday the 25th October. I will probably only be attending this workshop as I am pregnant and if I went to all of the workshops I would have too much fun, which could lead to an early delivery lol! In all seriousness, it is a great day, with awesome prizes, fantastic food and all for a great cause!
I will post up more information as it comes to hand, but it would be great to see the familiar as well as some new faces this year! Let's make it the best one ever!!

I know that this is not a very creative entry to my blog, but I hope to get some new samples on here from the new mini as soon as Julian remembers that He does have a sleep during the day and allows me o make some great things!

Take Care...
