When Nz post let you Down

I am sooo sad today as a very special parcel for my niece and her grandfather whose birthday is a day apart have had there birthday Parcel misplaced even though it was sent track and trace.......... What is even worse than losing my wedding video on my fathers player, and the dress I had sent with hand made cards, was that because in contained a small amount of money for a phone top up card the other Items are said not compensated for so not only have I lost all these Items I also have to replace them myself ..... pretty double stinky

be warned gift vouchers etc also come under the label of money as per a post office front counter staff information (she was lovely thank you) cant say the same for the cold letter from nz post

However I will not give up and I have included that parcels return safely in my prayers

Colour challenge 50

Wow this is a very vibrant colour challenge by Kristina Werner .

I thought it was just perfect for a journal cover for a friend who is soon to be travelling overseas.

Unfortunately I couldn't seen to capture how beautiful the new fine super nova glitter by stampin up is I have used for this cover chocolate and Aqua and dazzling diamonds on the yellow card stock

The butterfly was hand cut which took some time but well worth the trouble as she is a lovely flyaway kind of girl. I have applied some crystal effects to the sailing ship in the bottom Left corner to give it a little pop this is a stampin up stamp from 1996 however I do not know its name The brad is fabric covered by K and co in red Turquoise and white pearls very yummy

Now I just have to get on and complete the rest of the Journal lol

Not just for Cooks

you may have to click the picture...

As soon as I saw this stamp set from the Kitchen of I just knew I had to have it as I can see soooo many reasons for using it and I just love it.

I shared this Idea with a couple of girls at the South Island (Dunedin) regional meeting yesterday and thought I better post a wee picture so they can see what I was on about I have used as a set of photo dividers this time in conjunction with the window dressing stamp set
In this instance :
girl = family photos
Cat = Pets
Pumpkins= seasons
Snow Men = Christmas
Flowers = Birthdays

No looking Dad colour challenge# 49

This Colour Challenge seemed to come around pretty quickly Kristina
And the challenge for myself was to make a Masculine card for my DaDs birthday therefore no yummy fluff I did however use the priceless stamp set to do the white embossing of the chipboard letters the other stamp set used was alphabet soup which is unfortunately no long available
It was great to colour it in with the challnge colours and to stamp the rose red card stock

Thank you Michelle

Can you believe it 4 days into daylight saving finishing and we have had the first small fall of snow on the hills......and it is so cold here today I really dont look forward to winter especially when the wood shed is not full

But ON a much brighter note this lovely Parcel arrived in the mail today from a very generous lady in our stampin up team called Michelle Cave I so wish I had the "a good egg" stamp set but I left my run a bit late.

Thank you for brightening the day with your kindness now please get a blog so we can see all the lovely things you make
