The end is in sight

Hi there, I only have three more weeks left in Cairns this year before I have eight weeks off work (see me smile). I haven't had more than a week off at a time in more than two and a half years which has been a long haul. So, I am off to Nepal, India, Wagga Wagga (NSW) and then at last to New Zealand to see my family. Therefore, this weekend is probably the last time for the year that I will get to stamp for an extended period of time. Instead of studying (and getting my research proposal finished) I decided to head up to the coolness of the Tablelands and do some stamping with Adrianne.

One of the things I was determined to do was Makeeshas sketch challenge. The first problem was deciding what ├íre the dimensions of a square card. Is it 10x10cm or 12x12cm or some other measurement? I decided on 12x12cm. So here it is. I must say I quite like it.

The designer paper is the new Stampin Up Elegant Soiree on the background of Kraft, Bashful Blue and Soft Suede (I call it cow poo brown which is probably a bit harsh but see cow poo and soft suede together and you will see the connection - I'm still a farmgirl at heart). The stamp is sincere salutations and the bling is cheap spotlight stuff. I does look better in real life.

And as an add on here is a video of other cards I made over the weekend

Well, I hope you all have a good week. I am off to the Gold Coast on Saturday for a conference (which I am speaking at!).
