BIG news from wet and miserable Sydney.....






Hello Blogging friends, I hope all my American friends are enjoying the Memorial Day long week end and that the weather is good so you get to spend time outside with family and friends.

I was watching a program on TV last night that was filmed at the Chelsea Flower Show......wow I so want to go one year....the colours and designer gardens are to die for. The reason I mention this is that the weather in the UK looked good too (How pleased am I, Walshie and I will be there soon). Here in Sydney it's wet and miserable with the terrible cyclonic conditions we've been warned about due to hit tonight or tomorrow.




It's good crafting weather though and I am mega busy.....Annabella Stamps have 11 new sets due to release starting from 14th June. Previews will commence from 7th June with the new stamps introduced a few at a time starting from 14th. Andrea is working on some fun stuff too, so keep watching the Annabelle Stamps Blog and the DT's blogs for all the information. I can't give too much away... but I can tell you that there's something for everyone with these new stamps. I'm having lots of fun making up as much as I can before we leave.




Just a quick card to post today which uses Waltzingmouse Asian Gardens, I love this set and this tree in particular.

I've used Maroon, Kraft and white card for the stamped image. Sponged the edges to take away the stark white. The Kraft has been stamped with the large background stamp with a couple of Asian charms for a bit of bling. I've stamped an extra small foliage cluster to pop up on foam for some added interest.




That's it take care all and stay dry!!!!!

Love that card, especially the tree, sorry to say this comes from a wet Somerset, I hope summer isnt over all ready, perhaps Mr Sunshine is saving himself for when you arrive.
