Happy Easter!

Well, if you'd told me before Christmas, that I wouldn't be blogging again till Easter, I would have thought you mad! But here we are! Hi everyone - a bit late, but, Happy New Year!

So, where have I been? Well, the truth is very boring - I just haven't been stamping! Shocking right? I took the summer off, and other than dabbling a little, and a few small projects, I can't say I've spent much time in my stamp room at all. Instead I've been enjoying the lovely weather, spending time with friends and family, reading lots of good books and puttering around with a bit of beading and cross stitch.

Now that the weather is starting to cool, and we have a wonderful new Stampin' Up! catalogue for inspiration, I'm starting to feel like putting in some time with my beloved inks and stamps - finally!
I whipped up this wee mini 3x3" card this afternoon. The cute wee bunny is from a great new set, Greetings Eight. I coloured him using blender pens, and all the wonderful new In Colours from Stampin' Up! this year! Aren't they gorgeous? I love using blender pens for small images like this, the lovely pen tips make getting into those tight spots a breeze.

I'll hopefully have a few updates over the next couple of days, including a Beautiful Bundle with these gorgeous new colours. If you would like a copy of the new catalogue, feel free to email me to order your copy - or better yet, book a workshop to get one for free! I am all booked up for April (I could possibly squeeze in a weeknight workshop the last week if you're desperate!) but feel free to enquire about your date for May, or email to find out how you can earn hostess benefits from anywhere in New Zealand!

I hope you had a great Easter, that no one was stuck in traffic with hyper children on a sugar high, and that you've had a wonderful summer too! Thanks for all the emails and enquiries, they are much appreciated and it's great to be back in the stampin' swing of things!

Happy Stampin'
