I Can't Stop Ticking-The-Tock...

Kia ora koutou

....Time!  Ever get that feeling; there's not enough time in the day to do all the things need doing?  Even after prioritising and planning by the minute...  I was told some good advice - "One thing at a time", so when ever I start to panic about things piling up around me I say to myself, "one thing at a time, relax, is it that important?"  

These past couple of weeks have been using up every grain of sand in the hour glass, sheeeshh - it has been challenging, but if you didn't know something about me already, that is; I love challenges :)

Monday Card Class 

Pretty Pop-up

This lovely pop-up card folds flat so that you can pop it in the post :)  I followed a very good tutorial:  Dawn's Pop-up Card
I used Liquid Pearls and Kindyglitz in the centers of the flowers - beautiful way to make them 'pop'.

Card Candy

For those of you unfamiliar with the term 'card candy' it is a delectable, cool name for - card toppers/card supply the base card and attach the card candy to the front, voile! a beautiful card.  I was introduced to this fantastic idea through my wonderful, creative Australian friends - Paper Angels.  Have you ever needed a card that was ready to go for any occassion?  Card candy is the solution!!! :)

Stencils and Primary Elements

OMG - glimmer mist, stencils, silver embossing, choice die-cut shapes and washi tape combined = funtastic, cool, 'pretty grunge' love this style!

Spritz, Splotch, Smoosh - Stencil Magic

What a ball! I had such a blast creating these cards, I hope the ladies had fun making them :)

A Little Thankyou

I am forever grateful to my Stampin' Up! customer's - thank you.  Loving Stampin' Up!'s washi tape and In Colours - Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, so scrumpdillyumptious.

....Whats coming up 

Well, as usual I have put my hand up, bitten off a bit more than I can chew, oh well.  So I have a few deadlines to meet - marketing assignment due, design a swap card (design a card then make 10 kits of the card to teach and swap with fellow colleagues, gahhhhh), design alternating scrapbook layouts and cards for a competition I have entered called ABC Summer Crop 2013 (held by My Sketch World) each project represents the letter of the alphabet, design and create cards for my monday class, make a farewell card...very challenging!  Pics will be up soon - watch this space :)

Thank you for visiting my post, please come by again :) 

P.S.  - If you're wondering what the heck the post title is?  It is a line from one of my favourite songs of Kylie  Minogue's - Giving You Up

Can I simply just say what a comfort to discover somebody who genuinely knows what they are discussing on the internet.

You actually understand how to bring a problem to light
and make it important. More people must check this out and understand this side of your story.
I was surprised that you aren't more popular because you certainly possess the gift.
