Flood Appeal

We all know how devestating the floods have been throughout Queensland, NSW and Victoria. Stampin' Up! is doing their part to help those affected.

As flood waters continue to inundate Australia in what has been described as the worst flooding in 37 years, we express our deepest sympathies to those who have lost loved ones and homes and to those whose lives have been changed forever. We, like so many of you, feel a compelling need to lend support to all those who have been affected.
Stampin' Up! demonstrators have a long history of making a difference in the lives of others--especially when disaster strikes and the need is greatest. Nearly two years ago, we watched another tragedy unfold in Australia. Our hearts were touched as demonstrators, customers and friends joined together in support of the Bushfire Appeal. We've done it before and we can certainly do it again!
Please join with us by supporting the Australia Flood Appeal--a cause in which Stampin' Up! will donate $2 AUD of the retail value of sales from any stamp set (with a retail value of $30 or more) sold in Australia and New Zealand from 15 January through 15 February to the State Emergency Services in Queensland.
Please help us make a difference by placing an order today. If there is something you have wanted for a while then this is the perfect time to order as you will not only be getting that fantastic product but helping others at the same time!
Happy stamping,

Clean and Simple Cards

I liked the sketch 121 on Clean & Simple so decided to pull out one of my favourite sets that hasn't seen much ink of late. I got on such a roll I made a whole set of 8 using all the stamps and the same sketch. Here they are:

I embossed the images with black EP onto watercolour paper and then coloured using my markers and an aquapainter. I won't list everything I used but it is all 99% SU and most of the DSP is retired but if there is anything you would like to know then drop me a line. That's all from me today - got a bit of a fuzzy head after last nights festivities. I'm getting too old for this!
Happy new year,
