Hope you had a great weekend.
My husband Mark was home for the weekend and has gone back to Wagga Wagga for more training.
We had rain which was so greatly needed for the farms as we are in a really bad drought at the moment.
Our neighbours went away for the weekend and left us to take care of there puppy dog she is so cut. I am not really a small dog lover but she has a lovely nature. We took her for long walks in the morning and evening it was lovely to get out and enjoy the cooler weather.
It can get so hot here that it makes it really difficult to get out and walk as it is just to hot.
Anyway enough yakking about stuff... the fresh rain reminded me of all the flowers that bloom and how it makes everything grow so this card was inspired by the rain and the garden.
The stamp set is from the Summer Mini Catalogue and it is called Long-Time Friend.
I stamped the image on water colour paper and coloured it in using water colour wonder crayons (earth elements) The matt card is close to coco and the base card is old olive.
You can find the PDF to the Mini Catalogue Under Stampin Up! link on my blog.
If you would like to learn more about the Summer Mini catalogue promotion or Sale-A-Bration please contact me by email. Or through the demonstrator locator on the Australian Stampin Up! web site.
Enjoy your day!

It has cooled down a bit today after being around 37 degrees yesterday sooo..... hot. We had a bit of rain not much but it has helped to keep the temperature down a bit today. Mark and spent the morning in the garden it was lovely, nothing like having you hands in the dirt....
I have been pondering for a while if I should buy this stamp set but I could not help myself and just had to have it...so glad I did it arrived in the mail on Moday.
I first inked up the roller in pretty in pink and rolled it onto pretty in pink card. The dragon fly was stamped using Stazon and coloured in with my water colour wonder crayons....I think I am addicted to them..lol. I mounted the image onto sage shadow and use my paper piercer down the side. The flower is not Stampin Up! but creates just the finish I was looking for. The words where stamped in black and mounted onto sage shadow with dimensionals. The background was created using my white gel pen and black stampin maker.
My hubby is off tomorrow for more training so guess what ???
Let the stamping frenzy begin!!!!!

Stamping frenzy since Monday Stamping all day and night.......This is one of my fun creations. Being a Stanping up demonstrator we have access to amazing creations and templates. This is a box from our friends at Stampin up!
The box is made with Regal rose, Taken with teal and Certainly celery and Whisper White. I first stamped the cake from "Birthday Whimsy" on whisper white cut it out and mounted it on with dimensional to Certainly celery and the Taken with teal. The ribbon is from the "sweet shop", ribbon originals.
It's hard so see but the bottom of the box is stamped using the Paisley back ground stamp, you might have to zoom in to take a better look.
The top of the box is decorated using a strip of Certainly celery and scalloped with a corner round punch. And finally to finish it off I used certainly celery brads.
Thanks for dropping by!
Have a great day.
