Last months card swap with my sister had to use stamps out of the Mini catalog. With so many lovely stamp sets it was hard to chose which ones to use.

Here are Chantell's cards.
This one is using the Great friend set and the Scallop oval punch. She has used heaps of glitter to make it sparkle. (I love glitter!)

The Just Beachy is a fun set. The background is done with the Lazy Days jumbo wheel, a great combination! Thanks Chantell

My cards
I used soft summer for my cards. This pretty set is a two step stampin set. To make the grit I first drew the grid in very light pencil with my ruler, then stamped my image. I then used a fine black pen to draw in the grid lines around the image free hand. Then colour! Very easy and very effective.
I really enjoyed using the In Colours for this card. It's great to see how one stamp can be rotated to make this pretty design.

We had a midwinter christmas get together at work, so I made an envelope with a chocolate in for everyone. We had a great night too.


Recently our dog Ayla went to play with her doggie friend Astro at his house. Maybe she wanted to get inside the house or followed the cat who knows but when I picked her up she had the cat door stuck on her head! As it took two of us to get it off I had to take her home to get Rob to help remove it.

Thank goodness we got it off without having to cut it. Then we humbly went back and return it to it's rightful place, the house.
