I received lots of Birthday cards from fellows members of ESAD Facebook group. I have felt especially privileged to receive all these amazing cards. Quite a few of them I have CASED and used in my fortnightly classes that I hold from home.

I’ve been busy this weekend completing some boxes for sale at Craft Markets. These boxes were started a long time ago, and use mainly retired cardstock and DSP, although all Stampin’ Up! products.
I am a member of the ESAD (Extra Special Australia and NZ Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators) group on Facebook. For the months of July, August and September I am taking part in a Secret Sister swap. I have been allocated a Secret Sister and for these three months I have to send 2 cards and a gift each month to my Secret Sister – obviously without letting her know who I am. For this reason I cannot show photos of the gifts I’ve made until the final reveal in September. But I can show you photos of all the lovely goodies that I’ve received from my Secret Sister. Can’t wait until the end of September to find out who this wonderful person is!!
August gift and cards:
September Card and gift of new In Colour Ribbons. The Chocolates didn’t last long. LOL.

The Stamping Wife
She learned to stamp on Monday
Her embossing was quite fine.
She forgot to make us dinner,
So we went out to dine.
She brayered backgrounds Tuesday
She says they are a must.
They really were quite lovely
But she forgot to dust.
On Wednesday it was birthday cards
She says that chalking's fun.
Shading, blending, and watercolouring.
But the laundry wasn't done.
Her card swap was on Thursday
Using green and blue and red;
I guess she really was engrossed,
She never made the bed!
It was shaker cards on Friday
Using techniques she just adores,
But she never seemed to notice
The crumbs on all the floors.
I found a maid on Saturday!
My week is now complete
My wife can stamp the hours away,
And the house will still be neat.
Well, it's already Sunday,
And my forehead's feeling damp.
I cursed, I raved, and I ranted. . .
The MAID has learned to stamp!!!
I just found this poem through fellow ESAD sister on Facebook. I thought it was just hilarious!!

For Mother’s Day this year Shakira and I made Coconut Ice Mice for Grandma.
We coloured coconut ice pink and brown for the mice, and some yellow – for cheese. The tails were made from liquorice and they had chocolate button ears, with chocolate for eyes and noses.
Shakira and I stamped and decorated the brown paper to go around the box and shredded brown paper for inside the box.
I found a really cute card on the internet which I cased from here.
I recently took part in a Secret Sister swap through ESAD (Extra Special Australian and New Zealand Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators).
The swap ran over three months – from February till April. The idea was that every month, we were to send 2 cards and a small gift to our secret sister. At the end of the three months we were to send a larger gift, and tell our Secret Sister who we were.
It was lots of fun and exciting, was hard waiting till the end of the three months to find out who our Secret Sister was.
All these cards and gifts I received from the lovely Narelle Hoggard. Wasn’t I spoilt!!
