A Notebook, A Card and A Frog!

The notebook & card were made for my old (not in numbers!) teacher, Judy. She had a birthday last week & this is what I made her. She runs the cofee group I go to.
I covered the notebook with SU card & embossed it using an SU embossing folder.
The card is also made using SU stamps etc.
The frog needs to be stuffed with un-cooked rice - then he turns not a Prince...he turns into a paper weight! I made him last week too.
I had a busy week last week, I made a card, covered a notebook, posted them & made a frog...and spent two days in hospital, again:-(
I'm ok again now, just really tired/fatigued. The story of my life...
Anyway, thanks for visiting, see you again:-)

I Had Fun and Only Spent a Few Dollars!

Here are a few photo's of some things I got at a mini gala I went to on Saturday. Amongst the things I bought were two notepads (blue & white at bottom left of photo. I have covered one in Pumpkin coloured card from SU. I embossed it with one of their embossing folders & put some pumpkin coloured gems on it too. You can see it next to the un-covered note pad. This is a birthday gift for one of my old school teachers from when I was only 11 years old! Wow, that was a long time ago! She now runs the coffee group I go to & is still teaching! She was my favourite teacher at school.
The recipe book appears to be brand new & has some fabulous recipes in it. All of them are quick & easy to make. (and yummy to eat!)
I found a recipe in it for "Weekend Biscuits", so, being Saturday, I thought, "I can make those"!, so I did! (That's them in the first photo!) They have sultanas in them & taste delish!

Stampin' Up Cards

Ok, here are a few cards I made recently. The one with the candles is made from the same SU Ornament punch that I made the fish cards with. (Scroll down to see fish cards)
The owl book mark is also made with SU stamps & punches...I am totally hooked on SU stamps and punches etc! My wonderful friend Rosy, in Illinois, whom I stayed with a few years ago, introduced me to the wonderful world of Stampin' Up and all their awesome stamps & I have been hooked ever since! Way back then they were not available down under here in New Zealand so I would order them from her & she would ship them to me. When I stayed with her I had ordered HEAPS of SU stamp sets, so my suitcases were VERY full when I came home! (Thank you Rosy Babe!)
Ok, thanks for visiting, it is dinner time now so I have to go...{{HUGS}} from me to you and thank you for dropping by:-)

Full Moon

This is one of the photo's I took recently, of the full moon.
It was about 7.35 pm and was getting dark when the moon rose over the hill. It was so bright & luminous so I grabbed my camera & went outside & shot off some photo's before it got too dark!
I have an A3 size enlargement of this on my "Great Hall Of Frame" & it looks AWESOME!
I thought I had already put this on my blog but when I checked, it wasn't there. So here it is now, hope you enjoy it!
