Did you miss me?

Hello there! I'm back from my lovely holiday. It was so nice to spend some time with my family, just chilling out and catching up with everything that's been going on for the last six months. Heard some killer gossip, spent heaps of time with my Gran (not to mention hearing many scandalous stories about the past!!! Not that I know any of the people involved, but it's nice to know that things really haven't changed that much - just that these days people are more open and up front about it!)

Unfortunately, I also go the dreaded flu!! I very rarely get the flu (the last time was 10 years ago!) and when I do I turn into the world's worst patient....kinda like a man really :) So unfortunately I didn't get as much crafting done as I would have liked. Luckily for me Mama's craft room is also the spare bedroom (or MY room as I like to call it) and I got to "supervise" while she created. Over the next few days I'll put up some of the things she made while I was home. I did get the chance to make a couple of things, including a ribbon storage box for her, which I forgot to take a picture of before I left :( It is purple too and super cute...but you'll just have to take my word on that!

Any way...below is one card which I did get made using Mama's brand new Fishy Friends set. I mean really, how cute is this jellyfish. The BG is stamped with the shells from Seaside in Versamark. The card base is Pale plum and the matting for the jellyfish is is Perfect Plum...which are the two colours I used in water colouring him...as well as some blue for the water...but I can't remember which one it was....blame the flu! The sentiment is from By the Sea, stamped on Very Vanilla and mounted on Perfect Plum.

Gran really liked this one so I gave it to her to add to her stash box. Apparently she's been USING the cards I made her for Mother's day and actually sending them to people!!!!

I did manage to do a little shopping while I was away, including raiding Mad's retired stamp sets, so I should have some new creations for you next week, by which time the flu will be gone...I'm slowing killing it with enough garlic to supply a small Italian village for a month!!

On another note...tomorrow night is the BIG night...I'm going to see Michael Buble at the Sydney Entertainment centre...not sure if I mentioned this before but I have a FRONT ROW SEAT!!!! Yes, I am excited....I love Michael...so come by on Sunday for an update on how fabulous he was and how much I drooled. A lot of people have been surprised that I am going by myself....but hey, who needs a distraction like a companion when you have Michael to feast your eyes and eyes upon??? I mean really!!!!!

OK, off to try and catch up on more of the blogs I missed while I was away.
Thanks for stopping by,

Kristie
