Preschool Thanks

Last year, to thank my son's preschool teachers, I organised for the class to join together to purchase gift vouchers to day spas for each teacher. They were a huge success for everyone and just a small token of how much we valued their imput into our children's lives.

To accompany the vouchers I came up with this card design. I really like the simplicity of this combination. [I have to say though, it was hard trying to get a photo that did the SU Soft Sky justice.]

Thanks for stopping by - see you soon!

A Quick Post

Just quickly popping in between shopping and picking up my dd from a birthday party but wanted to keep with my aim of regular posting.

I've been trying to work on creating a few cards for my stash. This is one of the cards I created with an adult male in mind. [It looks better IRL - struggling to get a good photo.]

What do you think?

I'm Encouraged!

I received an Encouragement Award from the very talented Danyelle! She is so inspiring and I am very humbled to think that she has noticed my absence in "blogdom". Thanks Danyelle! Your creations always encourage me.

I would like to pass on this award to some friends whom have encouraged me in my creative walk and whom I'd like to encourage in their creative journey. (There are so many I could give this to but have just chosen a few.)

Hannah - Please share some more of your fabulous work with the world! You're an inspiration to me!
Joan - Someone who cares and encourages from across the otherside of the world. Thanks.
Chrissie - Who's creative joy is so contagious.
Susan - Who is always encouraging and building others up.

Thank you ladies! I hope you are all encouraged that your creations are touching the lives of others.

I'm still here!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that the New Year is shaping up to be a cracker! :o) Oh - Happy Valentine's Day for the other day. Hope it was full of love and romance for you - I know mine was. *vbg*

Since Christmas I've been spending time with my husband and kids as the Christmas holidays in Australia is the longest break in the school year. Then it was the usual busyness of getting the kids ready for school with the extra delight for our youngest son who started primary school this year. But now with school into its third week, life is settling down and I am excitedly looking forward to more craft time with only myself at home. With that in mind, my aim is to keep my blog updated regularly with my creations.

So in keeping with my goal, here is a card I made over my absence. I just love the 3D effect of the butterflies, don't you?

Don't forget to say hi! I'd love to see what you've been up to and I also like to know that I'm not talking to myself...again!@?! hee hee

Thanks for dropping by,
