Hello from Queensland where I am visiting my close friend, Cassandra. I'm using her camera and computer to make this post - thanks for sharing Cass.
Now that I've re-stocked my supply of PINK Columbines (not sure what happend to the blue ones), I can show you one of the projects for an upcoming event. It's a double purse made from SU! Designer Series Paper and Satin Ribbon, filled with sweets and embellished with a stamp from the Season of Joy stamp set. By using different paper, ribbon and embellishments it can be made to suit kids, men and anyone who loves confectionery. Or fill it with other goodies like bath salts, lottery tickets or a gift card.
If you're on my mailing list, you should have received an email invitation recently inviting you along to our "Get Ready for Christmas" Stamp and Scrap-a-thon on Saturday 25th October.
