World Card Making Day celebrations

Do you remember the last time you received a card in the mail? In a sea of junk mail and bills, a card is a simple thing that really stands out to the person who receives it. Sending a card is a small gesture that shows just how much you care about that special someone in your life.
With World Card Making Day coming up on 1 October, celebrate by making and sending a handmade card to someone who could use a little recognition, love, or just a boost (which is anyone, really!). It’s also the perfect time to inspire you to send cards on 1 October too! And in celebration of World Card Making Day, from 1-5 October, you can save up to 25% on cardmaking essentials that can be used to share your love all year long! Check out my tips on making the most of this World Card Making Day promotion, download the flyer so you can quickly see which items are included in this promotion.  Guess What! The Envelope Punch Board is on this list, yipee!!!

Looking back

I had to find some photos for a friend of mine and that led to digging up a lot of happy memories and finding things I had forgotten about. I thought I would share this project with you all again. I did post it several years ago, but it is such a happy memory I feel the need to share it again.

Our very dear friends had invited us to their 50th wedding anniversary. We were thrilled to be going and I wanted to give them something special even though it was stipulated "no presents".

The invitation had a photograph of them on their wedding day, so I decided that I would make them Thank You cards using this photo. One of our Paper Angels Anna Wheaton had created a box and I am very partial to boxes, so, I rejigged it to make it fit the cards.

I scanned the invitation photo and then did a bit of playing around on the computer to get it to sit just so. I then printed the pieces out on Sahara Sand Card. The Thank You cards were made using Sahara Sand card. The sentiment was stamped then punched out with the little Curly Label punch. They loved them. Such a fond memory.

More visitors from the garden...

You can tell it is Spring, all the creatures are stirring. Another little critter was making its way to my craft room door this morning. Looks like everyone wants to comes to my classes.

A little more manageable than yesterdays visitor. He is a Red Triangle Slug. You can't see his sides but they have a red line running down them. The triangle on his back has a small hole and I thought he may have been hurt, but I did some research and found that it is his breathing hole. How amazing!!!

This is what Mr Google says....
The Red Triangle Slug is usually found grazing on microscopic algae growing on the surface of smooth-barked eucalypt trees, leaving behind scalloped tracks as it goes. If given the chance, it will also remove bathroom mould.

So, as though that wasn't enough from Mother Nature I get blessed with a Blue Tongue Lizard. This one was not trying to come to classes, I disturbed him in the garden. Isn't he lovely. He started to flatten himself so he could escape under the piece of timber nearby.

Unusual visitor to my craft studio

Today I got not a skerrick of crafting done, but it was a very interesting day. My craft studio is located under my house and is my little haven. This afternoon I had been in it cutting up some card and sorting out an upcoming Bluecare class. I decided to call it a day and was about to slide the door closed when I wondered what had just gone across my foot. I looked down to see a beautiful snake slithering into my room. Yes he was beautiful I'm not sure exactly what type of Python he was but something like this.

My first thought was what could I use to get him out. Second thought was, don't be silly, if you leave he will go somewhere and then you won't be able to find him. So I grabbed the phone and sat down and kept watch on his slithering movements and rang my friend. I asked her to ring me as soon as I hung up so that my husband who was upstairs, would answer the phone and she could ask him to come down. She did.

My husband came down and moved the fridge, yes, Mr Python had slithered under the fridge. He wasn't happy at being found so slithered across the room trying to find another place to hide. He was amazing to see as he was sooooo long when he was all stretched out about 6 feet. My husband picked him up, and put him in a polystyrene box. He was then taken up to the local park and released. A much better place than my craft room.

I know many of you will think this would have been an awful experience. Far from it, I was thrilled to see such a beautiful creature close up. Mind you Red Bellied Black or Brown snake and  I would not be saying this.
