Christmas cards / Sydney Papercrafts Festvial

Pin It
Hi All, well were back from the Sydney papercraft Festival. It was a hot 2 days we spent away with our son doing most of the driving on his L's to get some more hours up.....the normally 5 hour drive took us about 6 and a half!! :0 But i was proud of how he drove. This year's festival had been moved from Penrith to Canterbury and i must admit it wasn't as good as in years past as there weren't as many stalls, but still had the same atmosphere. here's a pic of one of the stalls and the goodies i ended up getting...............I got those big stamps for just $5 each!
So i was pretty happy with the day.

So here are the 2 cards we made on Monday with the ladies....Both fairly easy. In the second one the holly leaves were hand cut and the berries are a 1" punch.

We also had our daughter gain her silver award from school this week and are so proud of her. To get these Bronze Silver and Gold awards they have to work hard to receive compliments slips from teachers concerning their behaviour and school work, school service and also community service. here's a pic of her.........

Please also continue to remember the year 12 students in their exams ....Beth has her last one tomorrow, Chemistry. And also my friends Judy and Bev who are not well.

and a last thought that i found encouraging this week.

My soul claims the Lord as
my inheritance; therefore i will
hope in Him.
Lamentations 3:24
