Dandelion Wishes

Happy Wednesday!

Today feels like a very long week and we're only half way through :-( clearly I need to set some more time aside to craft and cheer myself up!

Today I'm sharing with you a really quick card that I made using the gorgeous dandelion wishes stamp set. This one is already proving really popular. So much so I'll be running a class on the 18th August where the set is the focus of the class. You can sign up for the class here



Now you all know I love a quick card. You can make the background for the card using ink and a waterbrush or using some brushos. I've gone the easy route and used some of the delightfully detailed notecards and envelopes.

I hope you enjoy today's offering and I look forward to sharing some more designs using this set on the 18th August.

Don't forget you can easily order items used in this card by clicking the image below and use the hostess code ---> --->
and I'll send you a thank you gift.

Something old and something new

Happy Monday!

How did you enjoy the Malawi blog? We managed to pack so much in to such a short visit. Hopefully I'll get to go back again one day and explore a bit more. I have so many photos and I've started putting my album together, so no doubt I'll share some photos of that in due course.

Today I'm bringing a couple of cards to you which uses some stamps from the new catalogue, but using up some of my retired paper and cardstock.





I love this stamp set, I was fortunate enough to receive it at On Stage back in April and I'm so glad that the catalogue is live so that you can get one too!

Fancy making some cards like this one? I'm running a class on the 3rd July which uses this stamp set. Why not come and join us for an evening of fun!

Happy crafting!

Malawi - Day 8

 
It’s 7am and we’re heading home. Having to leave the wonderful people of Malawi is heart wrenching. The events of the week catch up with us on the drive back to airport.

There are a few tears as we go our separate ways in Addis Ababa, we’ve all returned home with a lifetime of memories, some incredible friendships and dreaming of the days when we might be lucky enough to return to our piece of paradise.

Malawi - Day 7


How did we get here? The last day in Malawi today and the Friday feeling is here already! Just the girls at the build today, progress was a little slower, but we did have a crash course on cooking chicken from scratch, meaning catching and "preparing" it as well! Life is simple, what you want for lunch? Chicken. All right, lets grab one!

Lads at the nursery chilling in the meantime.

Footy tournament scheduled for the afternoon with gifts for the village and builders. The locals were treated to beautifications, courtesy of Elisa during the football match. Meanwhile Vasiliki got Africanised with skin to skin extensions!

We said our final farewells at the infant home and the mothers sang and danced with us all. What a fantastic end to this amazing trip!

The evening got a little wild at what we affectionately call the zebra club with dancing, drinking, drinking and well some more drinking, followed by garden party whiskey, laughter and more beer till 2am! No-one wants the magic to be over.
