Melbourne here I come ...

Well at long last I'm due to leave for Melbourne next Tuesday for my PET scan on the Wednesday. My friend Anne is coming with me and we are then staying on until the Saturday so hope once the scan is over to do some well deserved retail therapy and perhaps take in a show - and maybe a short tour somewhere.

In the meantime I have made another couple of cards but think with all the other on my mind that my heart wasn't really in it. Either that, or my creative powers have been severely diminished! Anyway, this is them:

Saw a similar card somewhere - probably on SCS but not too sure about it after making four of them thinking they would be great standbys for a male card.

This was made using the Birthday Whimsy stamp set and 3 squares of SU DSP.

Had a plan in my mind for this but somehow veered off in all directions while making it. This was also intended to be a male card as there are a lot of boy birthdays coming up.

I used the large Baroque Motifs stamped in Versamark and clear embossed on River Rock, mounted on Chocolate Chip with the base card being Blue Bayou. The round stamp is from the Riveting set.

Last night we had a watercolouring lesson at the lovely Jacque's. The first card we made had a pirate theme. I will have to put this away for my youngest grandson's birthday next year - he'll love it. Haven't lined the circle stamp up on the photo very well as the card was open but when closed it fits perfectly.

Now for my favourite little girl stamp - doesn't it look gorgeous but I won't tell you about my big 'boo boo' when making it because I don't think it shows up in the photo and I was able to correct it so that you can't notice it.

I am hoping that over the weekend I will have the time to go to the Dunkley's Craft Show on the North Shore.

My friends/demonstrators from Stampin' Up have a booth there and are demonstrating hands-on projects for visitors to join in and do. If you're reading this blog and live in Auckland do go as I know you will have a ball!

Bye for now.
