Well it's been soo long since I've blogged, have been rather lazy on that score. But that dosen't mean that I havent been stamping because I 've been stamping like a crazy girl. But this for now is for Sharlene. I promise that I will take some photos of my new cards and get blogging. Not a great photo (took it myself) (lol), but it's brown with red streaks.

Hi all it's been sooo long since I've blogged but, I have had some good excuses. We are nearly at the end of calving with only 18 cows to go. It's been a good spring. Also I had been doing Wardrobe for Hawera Repertory's The Gingerbread Lady which finnished last weekend, so with the early mornings and late nights I haven't had any time to blog let alone stamp. But wait there's more here are two cards that I did manage to get done for the cast and Director of the show. I was asked to make a card for Donald and this is what I came up with.
I did a gate fold card.
Stamps: For Father
Cardstock: Chocolate chip, Tangerine Tango, Red Riding Hood
Ink: Saraha Sand
Accessories: Versamark, clear embossing powder, tangerine tango ribbon
The other card was one that I did for the guys in the cast.
