Twisted Sketches Final

Good Evening Well it is with a heavy heart that I can now share with you all that the lovely Anam has decided after three years of running the amazing Twisted Sketches site that it is time to call it a day. Anam you have done an amazing job over the past few years, providing us all with some amazingly talented scrapbookers & card makers to inspire our creativity week in and week out. It has been both an honour & privilege to work alongside such a talented bunch of card makers these past few months. Our final twist for this week was *THANKS*. Of course as I was making my card I was thinking of how much I wanted to thank Anam for the opportunity she gave me and for the wonderful work she has done over the past three years running & managing the site. So without further adieu here is my final card. All the best Anam......... and THANK YOU Hugs Shirl

Fond Farewell......

Good Afternoon Well after what seems to always be another chaotic week (found out our dd is highly allergic to dust mites) I have finally managed to sit down for an hour and make a start on one of several *special* cards I need to make asap. This card will be hand delivered tomorrow at our monthly card making class to a special lady I have come to know who is leaving us to live interstate! She will be dearly missed and I wanted to make a little card & as well as give her a little farewell gift! Still working on that! lols Nothing like leaving it to the very last minute hey? Hope everyone is having a scrappy week. Bye for now. Hugs Shirl

Stampin' Up Christmas Cards

Well I have been just a tad absent of late, for which I apologise. Real life has been crazy busy with illness, sporting competitions & matches, training and the list goes on and on. But I thought I would share some of my Stampin' Up Christmas Cards. I have been on a total roll the past week since receiving my first ever SU order. After months and months and months considering whether or not I would join SU I finally decided to take the plunge at the end of May. As part of my first order I got two sets of Christmas stamps as well as two sets of word stamps. I ordered these with Christmas Card making on my mind. As well as creating my Magnolia cards for special friends and family members (fellow crafters) I wanted a way of making some quick and easy cards that would still appeal not only to me but of course to the people I am giving them too as well. So I can't say enough how happy I am with not only my stamps but also the co-ordinating inks, as well as paper and cardstock. If I can assist anyone with an queries please don't hesistate to get in touch. But for now... here are some of my very simple christmas cards. Thanks for stopping by. Hope everyone has had a great Sunday and got lots of scrapbooking and card making done. Hugs Shirl
