Stampin' It Up

On the 2nd Thursday night of the month, I catch up with my friends Steph and Bek for 'Stampin' Up' card making class - with Ngaire Anderson. For the fabulous cost of $10 (& 2 hours of our time), we get to make 3 cards, chat, laugh, eat lollies and share what's going on in our lives - Bliss.

Ngaire's beautiful designs, the middle one is DH's card for Valentine's Day

The Victorian Bush Fires were not far from our thoughts and discussions last night. Ngaire said that Stampin' Up are selling 10 select group of stamp sets with 50% of sales going towards the Australia Red Cross Victorian Bushfires 2009 Appeal. - a great excuse to add to your stamping collection if you ask me!

Another 'Pleated Beauty Bag' (from Amy Karol - Bend the Rules Sewing) - my 10th! This one has found its way to Leigh in Pingelly.
