Shave For a Cure

Pin It
This Darian our Eldest son, he is 16 year old.
He has decided to take part in "Shave for a Cure".
Which is a big thing for him, the last time I wanted him to get a hair cut I had to bribe him with pizza which is favorite food.
He has decided to do this crazy thing for an amazing cause( His words). 
I've joined the Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand (LBC) in their effort to get 10,000 people shaving in a mass expression of solidarity. 
That's one shavee for each one of the estimated 10,000 New Zealanders living with a blood cancer or condition like leukaemia.LBC is the national charity dedicated to supporting patients and their families living with blood cancers and related blood conditions, this support can last months or even years.Shave for a Cure is LBC's signature fundraising event.
 LBC receives no government funding.
Please sponsor me and help me support this great cause.
It's simple, fast and totally secure. Just click the on the link 
Please get behind him for this very worthwhile cause.
Many thanks for your support.

23 Years Ago Yesterday

Pin It
23 Years ago Yesterday at 11am (well maybe a bit late) I arrived the church to marry Paul.
Happy Anniversary Darling.
I love you more today than when I said "I do".
We have had a good 23 years together.
Lots of milestones happy and sad.
Three beautiful children and 3 we will meet one day in heaven.
Thanks for your patience Paul. 
I look forward to the rest of our life together.

Savannah Baptism Card and NZSU Emboss Challenge

Pin It
Hi all.
Sorry it been awhile between posts.
Last week I had an ex-ray of my knee and the outcome was as we thought I have Osteoarthritis.
I also had bloods taken and they showed up that I'm low on Iron.
As result of these results I have now added another tablet (iron) to all my other tablets I already take.
On Friday the doctor gave me a steroid injection in my knee.
So my knee is now feeling better, I still get some pain but it's bearable.
Yesterday Savannah (DD) got baptized, with some other young ladies from Church.
 Here's the Savannah's Card.
I have cased this from Lynda Shrimpton Here, Lynda had made it as a sympathy card.
 She had cased it from Andrea buckland's blog, Andrea had made it a Easter card, you will find a tutorial Here.
Here's the inner.
I have used 'God's Blessings, Vintage Vogue and Precious Butterflies' Stamp Sets.
God's Blessings is a great set of 8, I use it so much.
Savannah's card is Island Indigo and Whisper White.
 Here's Riding Hood Red and Whisper White Combo.
Pool Party and Whisper White.

Thank You Debbie

Something that I love about Stampin' Up is the people you meet.
Here in Timaru there is another Demo Debbie, we have become friends and support one another even through we are not on the same team.
Just recently I borrowed some stamp sets from her.
Here's the thank you card and wee gift I made her.
I have cased this card, I didn't save the details so if this is your card please let me know so I can give you credit for it.
 I have really enjoyed the SAB Everyday Enchantment DSP, they are gorgeous.
There are only a couple of weeks left of SAB, so contact me to get your free products when you spend $120.
Here's the gift I made her.
I have made a lot of these Post it Note Holders, they made great host gifts.
Thanks Debbie.

Lego Dude

Pin It
Here's the Lego Dude card that I promised you.
 I made this for Samuel for his birthday last Friday.
I used Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red and Pacific Point.
I used 1 1/4" Square, Corner Rounder, Word Window, Owl, 3/4" Circle and Large Oval Punches.
So sorry that it took all week to get around to posting this card.
I have had a very busy week and I have been also nursing a very sore knee as well.
I have been to the doctors this afternoon, I have now got some powerful drugs and I will be getting blood tests and x-rays done on Monday.
Have a great weekend.

Yesterday's Lego Party

Pin It
Here's Samuel's Lego Party yesterday.
I made this board with the number 7 on it, it sat in our front window and we used it in the group photo.
 Above is the serious and below the funny photo.
 The invitations can be found in this blog post HERE.
Here's the Lego Ice Cream Cake.
Ice Cream Cake Recipe
Whip 500mls of Cream
Fold in a tin of Condensed Milk
Add 3 -4 crushed Crunchies.
Pour into a silicone mould.
The day before the birthday I whip cream with food colouring to ice the cake then pop back into freezer.
Afternoon Tea.
 Lego Biscuits.
 Happy Birthday, 6 candles blown out with the first breathe, so one girlfriend this year.
Now let the games begin.
 Treasure hunt, there is small chocolates inside these Lego blocks that I made.
I made these Lego dudes lollypops for the treasure hunt and loot bags.
Build the tallest tower in 2 minutes.
There is 21 pieces of  Lego in each bag, the rules were that the tower had to be able to stand by itself.
 This Amane she build the the tallest tower.
 Place the mouth on the Lego dude.
 Guess how many Lego pieces in the jar, there was 43 pieces in this jar.
 Here's a notebook that I altered to look like a Lego block, these were for the loot bags. 
I got these notebooks from the Warehouse, they were $3 for pack of 4, a real bargain.
 We had a great afternoon, there was lots of laughter and smiles all round.
I will be back to show you the birthday card tomorrow.

Busy week this week preparing for Samuel's Lego birthday party on Saturday.

I'm now making 12 Lego blocks to put chocolate inside also for treasure hunt.
I need to make a birthday card for him as it tomorrow he turns 7, present is wrapped by Savannah (handy having a teenager once in a while).
I still need to make Lego notebooks, Lego man face and 12 mouths for pin the mouth on the Lego man.
I would like to get this all done tonight so I can make Lego biscuits, ice the cake and make over snack tomorrow.
