Christmas trends

I was thrilled when I saw " A wish for Peace" stamp set in this years main catalogue as I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. First of all I stamped in night of navy ink onto the beautiful glossy paper to give a real depth of colour to the image then with my two way glue pen I placed riverlets of glue for my dusting of dazzling diamonds super sparkle glitter to cling to a quick shake and a winter wonderland is created.

The peace dove is mounted on night of navy cardstock and I have used some of my fabulous collection of heavy duty stampin up punches, here I have used small, large and scallop ovals which make life super easy, I have also used our new eyelet punch. I felt the ballet blue card stock offered a smooth transition from the dark night of the navy to the brilliance of the whisper white card stock

Christmas greetings where provided by the very versatile cute and curly stamp set that comes with the punch bundle "curly label. Finally from the current mini catalogue is the beautiful riding hood red and cream striped wide ribbon.

Its great to have a table full of product goodies and use it all together the way that stampin up products go so effortlessley together, Please feel free to contact me if you which to purchase any of these fab products or you need to refresh or renew your current supply,

Kaikoura page Road trip

Just a few of my favourite things are on this page, travelling love it especially on a Train My Dad spent most of his working Career on the Railways from Shunter, Guard and Manager in Dunedin. Great times where often had by Sandra mum and I as we would get up in the middle of the night (it felt) and catch the train to my Nana and Grandads in Nelson. This Part of the trip was always memorable due to all the Tunnels that the train would go through.

Another Favourite is the TV show Logan and Brown more about that on other postings later , but the Often use Sea food in there show I really enjoyed the show covering this area and We also stopped at the infamous Nin's Bin for a couple of crays to go with fresh bread and butter with a pinch of salt......Devine

And Devine would also desribe the beautiful extremes of Land scape from the wind scuffed snow topped mountains to the ruggered black rocked coast
