Hatches, Matches and Dispatches

Hey ho all! We got back from Queensland late Tuesday night - well, actually, in the early hours of Wednesday morning. Do you remember a childhood story about a small train who used to say "I think I can, I think I can" to get up a hill? Well, that was us! Our XPT train had engine trouble and we couldn't make it up the hill! We ended up having to get towed up by extra engines and, long story short, were 3 hours late arriving back in Sydney! Then it was over an hour's drive home, so it was the wee small hours when we got home - after a 5 am start! Yes, we were tired little bunnies yesterday. But we had a lovely time visiting my brother, niece and nephew and also caught up with my aunt and cousin, so it was a great few days.

Now, of course, it's back to work with a vengeance with classes to organise, so today I have some cards to share. These are the cards we are making at my Simply Sweet class this month and I've dubbed it "Hatches, Matches and Dispatches".

Firstly, a card suitable to welcome a new baby, use for a christening or even baby's first birthday. (Excuse the photos, I'm out of practice and the light is poor!)

  • stamps used - Nursery Letters jumbo wheel, Wild About You, Best Yet, Nursery Necessities
  • colours used - Barely Banana, Whisper White, Certainly Celery

This next one can be used for a wedding or anniversary.

  • stamps used - Together Forever
  • colours used - Basic Grey, Very Vanilla, Purely Pomegranate

And lastly a sympathy card.

  • stamps used - Thoughts & Prayers, Baroque Motifs
  • colours used - Mellow Moss, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand

If you are interested in the Simply Sweet class, email or phone me for details. Enjoy your day!

Cheers

Kez
