Mojo Monday In-colour Embrace Life (two posts in one day, don't die of shock!)

Wohoo my second Mojo-Monday challenge! I'll try and make it two in a row! To be honest I'm not sure if Im feeling this card...

I used my fav set Embrace Life and Sahara Sand, Purely Pomergrante and Blue Bayou... Boo hoo I'm loosing Purely Pomergrante, its my favouritest colour of all time! I think I may go into hiding when its retired.

Anyway, I just realised that its my parents Anniversary in two days, so this card is for them. I wonder if it can make it from Dunedin to Whangarei in two days... I think I wont say anything and Mum will get a nice surprise, I have been a Stampin Up demo for a year come the new catalogue and I have not made my own mother a card!!! Anyway here it is!

In-colour Onesie!

A friend of mine is having a C-section tomorrow so I thought I would make a card, by the colours its obviously a boy, only known to the world at the moment as "Junior" coz the name is a secret until tomorrow! I thought yeah I'll make a cool onesie card and then i was like, ummm I have no baby stamps, so I found my Garden Whimsey and found the Lady bird, and thought that will do!

So I hope she likes it!

I used the soon to be gone Soft Sky and Blue Bayou!

Way to go Stampin' Up!

You can't go anywhere right now without seeing or hearing something about the fires, my heart goes out to all the families, and all the poor little koala's. We tend to forget about the animals in these situations! Stampin Up NZ/Australia are coming to the party and doing a wonderful thing by donating 50% of the retail value of certain stamp sets... (Listed below!)

Also I've been a bit quiet lately only because the job hunt is insaine! I have a temp job that starts soon, and I'm in the interview process for two other jobs... Fingers crossed!!!

Polka Dot Punch Valentine's Swap

This is a card I made for our teams online-swap...
I'm a pink girl at heart although I try not to admit!

I used the Polka Dot Punch from the Sale-a-bration caty, and So Many Sayings (level 1 hostess set) Rose Red DSP, Rose red ink and cardstock and Pretty in Pink cardstock. Also used the word window punch :)

Gota go rescue my chocolate cake from the oven!
