Anniversary card and tin

Well it's my Mum and Dads anniversary on Monday so I thought i'd better make at least a card. So here is the card... Now I also decorated a coffee tin I bought recently and of course put a little bear inside, He's not that little tho and only just fit!
I hope she likes it, she's a bear collector so should be well recieved.

That's all for tonight - never enough time... Too many late nights....

Easter Cards

Well after spending the entire weekend cleaning out my crafts, dvds, books. And then listing a heap of stuff on trademe (trying to get some money together to pay bills and hopefully have some left for the arrival of the new Stampin up catelogue), I had to make time to make a few cards.

Standup Photo Frame

Well tonights creation is inspired thanks to telecom. We recieved something in the mail from telecom promoting some deal to do with your favourite phone number, or something, I never actually read the mail but, as a part of this promotion they sent this standup photo frame.....
So of course I just had to try to make one my self!
I like the fact it folds down for easy posting just like a card....then I like the fact you can stand it up like a photo frame.. it's a similar design to the photo calendars I made for 2009.

I didn't spend much time on this design as I just wanted to try it and see if it would work... What you do think???

Survival kit - water bottle holder

So after a busy day at work I come home and remember I need to make some survival packs for some ladies at work.

The team at PAE, the caretaker/cleaning company that look after the WITT campus, are putting in a team for the relay for life this weekend.

Pat, Stacy, Barney and Becks are such good supporters of my crafts that it seemed only fitting to support them in the relay by providing them with survival kits. They are such good friends they even invited me to join their team although I don't work for their company! How nice are they!

The kit includes NZ Spring Water, and of course, hiding inside the holder is 2 chocolate frogs!

I have used stampin up's lifes definitions on the front and chosen a different definition appropriate for each person.
Inspire for Pat as she is so very inspiring especially as she has been recently diagonsed with breast cancer but that won't get her down.
Gratitude for Barney as I am thankful for the great cleaning job she does in my building.
Happy for Stacy as she needs some happiness right about now, and hearing about her adventures makes me happy.
And Original for Becks as being so youthful, I do hope she stays so very original and true to herself, she rocks.

I hope these little care packages help them through the day.

Photo cards

Here are some photo cards also made on Thursday night. All photos are taken by me... The funny thing about this photo is that you can see the size of the table I have all the cards on... This is my card making table! All my creations are made on this very small fold out table as I have limited space. I hope the rest of you know how lucky you are with entire areas set up for your crafting! LOL.
