A Weekend Away in Manjimup

I have just had a 3 day weekend with my friends at my family farm in Manjimup. We were looked after so wonderfully by my mum while we had a card making weekend. We also had a tour of the avocado farm and the forest behind the farm. It was a great weekend. I have a few photos to show you that I took. I apologize for not posting for a couple of weeks. I had a cortisone injection into my elbow last week (tennis elbow) so wasnt able to use my arm for a couple of days but now it feels great so I can get back into things.

the avocado's are ready to be picked. The trees have hundreds of avocados on them.

The irises in the garden and magnificant.


Two trees were hit by lightening last week. This is one.

In the Spotlight Christmas Card

Hi everyone, I am very slow at getting some more of WCMD cards up here. Anyway this is a card that I made using the layout of a card that was swapped at Regionals. I changed it into a slider card as I wanted to try that technique. I have used the hostess set, In the Spotlight, which goes with the 5 petal punch. Even though I love this card I dont think I would do it as a multiple card again as there are so many layers to cut out especially with 2 more layers for the insert. The colours I have used are Purely Pomegranite, Wild Wasabi and Ballet blue with Whisper White.

Cool Christmas Case

I saw a lovely set of cards in this months Cardmaking Stamping and Papercraft magazine using the stamp set Crazy for Christmas. I loved the square card but wanted to make an A5 card so this is my version of the same card. The original card was designed by Suzanne Kohler.

World Card Making Day Projects

My World Card Making day went really well yesterday. Thank you to all that came along and helped make the day a fun one. I thought I would show you a couple of the cards we made. I tried to make a selection of different category cards and here is the Male one and the Baby one.
I used the set Bareback for the first one, kindly loaned to me, by my good friend Sandra. I have always liked the brayered sky look so did that technique here.


For the baby card I used the set Nursery Necessities. As we made 2 of every card I also had the option of making it into a birthday card as well.



I hope your day was a good one if you joined in, or ran an event.
