Winter Post Stair Step Card


While I was on vacation in Laughlin Nevada my Holiday project was featured on UStamp with Dawn and Friends. I thought you may like to see it.  I designed a Stair Step card and used two classic Stampin' Up stamp sets - Winter Post and Lovely as a Tree. 



This card is unique in that it features a gift card or tag holder on the back made with the Top Note Die from BigZ Shots. 




If you are interested in participating in the Holiday Session of UStamp, you can get information and sign up here. There are still 12 days left in this session and the projects so far have been fabulous!!! It's never too late to join, you will have access to all the projects for a long time, even after it closes."

"Fabulous" Blog Award

My very talented and creative friend Lainee from Murray Bridge South Austrailia has honoured me with a blog award............. this is so exciting, and so nice...........thanks Lainee!


So in order to accept this award I need to share 5 things I am addicted to and then pass the award on to 5 other lovely blogs.  So, here goes:

1.  I am a paper addict............. it's like ladies that quilt and collect all those quarters.  I love to collect the prettiest of papers.

2.  Like all good stampers I'm totally addicted to chocolate............ only the darkest will do!

3.  I'm totally addicted to participating in UStamp with Dawn and Friends sessions............. I get to meet the nicest people there and love all the projects.

4.  I'm addicted to late night stamping and blog surfing.............need I say more.

5.  I'm addicted to making pretty boxes and 3 dimensional projects........ can't get enough of them.  It's like an adrenaline rush when I'm able to create something.  

Whew there's my five addictions.......................I think there's probably a lot more but those are all stamping related.  And now I get to name 5 blogs that I love visiting in those wee hours.  Thank you ladies for sharing all your talent and inspiration............... I am always in awe when I visit your sites!  Make sure you visit their sites too!
