Holidays at last

Well they have finally arrived...after waiting eight months I have two weeks off work. So I am off to the land of the long grey cloud AKA Nuu Zulund. This will only happen if I can pull myself out of bed at 4am so I can be at the airport at 4.30am. So far mum has sorted out day one. Dentist at 8am (NZ time) which is 5am QLD time which is a bit cruel but mum has never really grasphed time zones. Then after the dentist I am apparently drenching and innoculating sheep! Oh the memories of my former life and child labour come flooding back.

A few recent creations

As per Adriannes request, here are some of the latest creations that have been created over the last day or so. Thank goodness for air con and days off.
I recieved the Merci stamp set after winning a challenge on another blog (thank you Gina) and have had heaps of fun with it. I used some crystal effects to bring out the colours and to give the card a bit more bling. Now for the ones that just about did my head in. I had seen these cards on splitcoast stampers and thought I would give it a go but honestly the fiddly hand work require to get the bodice onto the dresses was a bit stressful but here they are:

Not for the faint hearted, I tell you. Finally, something I will not do again. There are just too many angles that need to be cut to make it look right. Found the dangly bits at spotlight the other day. It is meant to be a handbag card but I forgot to stick the handle on when I was glueing the inside card to the card so it didn't turn out quite how I wanted but still ok.
So Adrianne, hope this keeps you fed for a while. I have more but for now I need to go to bed so I can cope with the patients tomorrow.
