Believe it or not i took NO photos!! Working all day on the Fiskars stand didn't leave much time to take any pics (not complaining mind you :0) Half an hour for lunch, in which you have to eat, wee AND look at everything the show has to offer, goes VERY quickly!!
I was amazed at hour many Cairns girls i saw down there, maybe one day we will have some sort of craft show up our way, maybe...
This lovely lady and her delightful family generously put up with me for the week, for which i was very grateful :0) Brisbane was a bit of an eyeopener for me, although originally from Sydney, i have lived up in FNQ for 21 years and realised more than ever that i really have adapted to the slower way of life up here. Not that there is anything wrong with life down there, just alot faster and busier, cars and buses like i have never seen before, LOL!!
So back on Monday ready for a relaxing week to finish some magazine work, deadlines looming (next week)was quickly thrown out the window with some unexpected work at the kids school. The admin lady has taken ill so i am filling in, all good... just not planned.
A little tiny sneak at what i am working on, will share when i can:0)
Some published work this month in Australian Cardmaking Stamping and Papercraft Magazine Volume 15 No 6.

Okay bed is calling, lots of blogs to catch up on... soon as i get a minute....soon ;0)
Big catchup on blue, working yesterday so a day away from the computer.
Well i probably would be happy if i had a swig on this, lol!!
Not my drink preference but a very important ingredient for the garlic prawns my hubby likes to cook!!
My last blue pic is this one.....
such a lovely colour blue, i was sitting in the car in a carpark making sure no one was around before i took the pic!! I couldn't get the whole car, cause i was too close, and i WASN'T getting out in broad daylight to take it, lol!!
FINAL BLUE PHOTOS OR LINKS (SHOOT ME AN EMAIL) HAVE TO BE IN BY 8.30 TONIGHT CAUSE ITS COLLAGE NIGHT AND A NEW COLOUR TOMORROW.
and some published work for me this week :0)
Seeing as we are looking at BLUE I thought i would share a card that was published in Australian Cardmaking Stamping and Papercraft, Volume 15 No 3 which is the current issue out.
I have used the rubons, stickers and alphas to tell a little story on the front of the card.
This extra big card (A4) size uses the Lil Davis "Away we go" range of papers and epoxy stickers, and rubon, also in this range is some gorgeous diecut paper papers, you can see the little aeroplane cutouts on the white card.
Okay i am off to post my shadow shot, better late than never!!
hello!! Well i haven't got any photos of my Wedding Card Class that i taught at Paper Possibilities this morning, ahh, that might have something to do with the fact that i finished it at a late hour last night and ran out of time before the class this morning to photograph it!! It was received well and the girls as usual did a fabulous job of their creations.
Now, I thought i would let you guys in on a RAK that i have going over on the FISKARS ANZ BLOG at the moment, it ends tomorrow night, if you like making cards there is a AUSTRALIAN STAMPING AND PAPERCRAFT MAGAZINE up for grabs, just leave a comment to be in the draw!!
This is the post below as it reads on the Fiskars Blog, just click on the link to leave a comment if you wish :0) Oh and if you already have - thanks ;0)
Oodles of Doodles stamp set......and a RAK :0)
Hi, Annette here dropping by to share some cards.
I was thrilled when Australian Cardmaking Stamping and Papercraft arrived on the doorstep and one of my cards was on the front cover :0)
Thats it on the bottom right hand corner.
It was a set i did where i used some Fiskars stamps from the "Oodles of Doodles" set.
And the team at Stamping and Papercraft always do a fabulous job of photographing and making our cards look the part!!
Now it just so happens that the next edition of Stamping and Papercraft arrived today (volume 15 no 1) and for some reason, not sure why, they have sent me 2 copies!! ;0)
