I had a fantastic weekend starting with my wonderful Stamp Club ladies on the Friday night - I always look forward to seeing them. These are the cards we made above.

The tree card has a layer of vellum stamped with snowflakes (the smallest stamp in the Snow Swirled set) using white stazon - this is in the current spring mini which finishes on 30th November and also the Noel greeting from the Many Merry Messages set. I had grand plans to make this card lat year but never got around to it. It is the simplest of cards to make as it is using the Whisper White note cards which come in a pack of 20 precut and scored cards with matching envelopes! To tell the truth, I was actually running quite late in getting organised that night and a few hours before the ladies were due to arrive I was still to even think up the 2nd card yet alone prep for it, so I almost feel like I cheated but they really loved it - especially the simplicity of it.

Then on the weekend I had a great time helping out my good friend Naomi running her new fabulous Paperific business. I was on the door on Saturday and then the registers on Sunday. It was lovely meeting and greeting everyone as they came through but I have been told that next year I am not on the door at all as there is too much opportunity for me to wander off - being locked inside the "office" running the registers is the safest place for me lol! I was let off to get a bit of shopping done and can't wait to have a play with my new toys. I also finished a piece of jewellery off which I had actually bought the products to make it with at Paperific about 3 years ago! I had a refresher demo on what to do, went home and made it and wore it back to the show the following day to show the vendors who were very impressed I might add lol!
