I have reached 5000 hits!

Hello all. Yes I am still here, haven’t run away (yet!!). So let me explain my absence! I have got a job! It happened very suddenly, but I believe it was meant to be, and is the perfect “part-time” job for me. I am working Mon – Thurs from about 8:30 till 11:30, and I am helping out the lady in town who gives swimming lessons to the little kiddies. I go to each playschool, pick up the kids, get them ready for their lesson, climb into the pool and assist Jenny, and then get out, get the kids dressed and back to school. On a Mon & Wed I do 3 classes and on the other two days 2 lessons. So needless to say this week has been rather hectic with me trying to get used to my new routine. On top of that we are doing some renovations, so I had the builders here this week, and Caide and Bryce have also started with their swimming lessons. Their lessons are at 2:30pm Mon – Thurs. So, as I was saying, busy, busy busy. As a result my cardmaking has unfortunately taken a bit of a backseat for the last week or so!!

Hopefully I will be able to get myself back on track soon.

So, I do have a card to show you today. It is one I made using the Elephant Valentine set from Annabelle Stamps. This is an adorable set. It is called a Valentine set, but I think the ellies are perfect for baby and little kids cards too. Here is what is included in this set:

The card I made is quite a simple one, I paper pieced the elephant, and used some Making Memories patterned paper, which I think matches the ellie image perfectly!

Andrea from Annabelle Stamps is going to be releasing a few Christmas sets at the beginning of November so stayed tuned for those. She also has another surprise up her sleeve, which I should be able to tell you about soon!

I have just realised that while I was away I reached 5000 hits!! I am going to have to come up with some blog candy to celebrate!! What do you think??
