Enchanted Garden From Kaisercraft

Well ladies, the sun is shining and the washing is on the line. Things couldn't be better!! After the cold week we had last week it is sure lovely to see the sun again and we are so thankful for it!
Enchanted Garden is another collection from Kaisercraft, which as the title suggests, is Fairies etc, great for little girl cards.Our little girls always go through the fairy stage, don't they?

This range is July collection, so another sneak as to what is coming up next month. Do click on the photos for a clearer image.

This time next week, Liz and I will be in Australia, at Kaisercraft's Retailers Days, which we are really looking forward to. It will great to catch up with all our special friends again and we do have a lot of fun.
We fly back to Auckland on the following Wednesday, meet up with all our Artfull Crafts team, set up our stall etc and get prepared for the SENZ weekend. It will be fun altogether, although rather busy!

I'm not sure I will get another blog up before our travels, but will certainly bring you up to date when I return.

May you all be specially blessed, happy crafting and catch up when we return. Trust you are all keepng warm and thank you for checking this out - I do appreciate you all.

An Education For Nana

Good morning to you all. It sure is a wet cold Winter's day but by the forecast sounds as though it is pretty general over the country. Do hope you are all managing to keep warm.

Well, as the title of this post states, Nana has a lot to learn and she has very good tutors!!
Our youngest grandson decided he was a fan of  GANGNAM STYLE and his birthday card had to depict this. Well, he sat Nana down and educated her on this new phase, as she hadn't a clue on what he was talking about! What would one do without Google and grandchildren, hence the resulting card!!!

Ladies aren't you impressed just what Nana's can learn and what can be produced!!? Harvey seemed to approve but I do hope by next year he has moved on!!

Now to keep to a similar theme, being boys cards, I did another one for a special young friend who actually looks on us as his New Zealand grandparents. Justus's other grandparents live in Canada, so we have acquired the privilege of being their NZ ones and do feel honoured at being so.

All today ladies, thank you so much for checking this out and hope you enjoy the fun card!
Happy crafting, keep warm and many blessings to you all,

Kaisercraft's Sweet Pea Cards

Greetings to all my blog friends. I do hope you have all had a great week.
My week has been rather busy but I can now see daylight! I have just completed nine collections for Kaisercraft, so feel I can now relax. Whew!! The cards are required for the Retailers Days which seems to be coming up very fast. I am heading over again with Liz, so am really looking forward to that - it is a fun time meeting all our special friends there.

Today I would like to share some cards I did for the Magazine, using the Sweet Pea collection, but for various reasons, they didn't make it. Hope you enjoy seeing what I have achieved, with another lovely range of papers.

I really like the colour combination in this range - so enjoyed making these cards. I think the range may be a July one, so you have had a sneak preview!
I must go and do some photographing while the sun is shining - I usually take one of all the cards I do, so as I have a record of what I send away.
Blessings to you all - thanks for stopping by,

Kaisercraft's Summer Breeze Cards

Well, there isn't much sun shining through today but it is still a great day for staying in one's workroom making cards, cards and more cards!! Just as well we enjoy what we do, isn't it?!

We had a great time down South with our farm family and arrived home to find our Cromwell family in residence. Was so special to have them for a couple of nights. The house sure comes alive with two busy, happy kids, who we love dearly!

Today I would like to share another collection that didn't make the Workshop Magazine for May. Summer Breeze is just how it sounds - a fun colourful range. Here are the four cards I have done.

All today ladies, I must retreat to my workroom and carry on with the good work!!

Happy crafting to you all and many blessings.
