I am alive after all!!

My dear friends how are you all?? Thanks so much for your comments and keeping in touch despite me almost falling off the side of the earth!! lol. Its been over a month since I have blogged anything. It has been very busy with successful workshops, ebay doing very well with my cross stitches and long stitches walking out the door and getting organised for a month overseas!!! I can't believe it, a year of thinking, its so far away and here we are. Bruno and I depart to Korea on the 23rd September then japan on the 31st and return on the 17th September back home.
I have however found time to be creative, my lovely kind generous sister-in-law who is inspiring me to lose weight at the moment with her new blog CLICK HERE to see it, it is a great read. Anyway as I was saying, last week we had a demonstrators get together and it was so much fun!!! Thanks to Ange and her great ideas. It was so nice to meet Sue Maddex in the flesh. I qualified to get my stampin start (3 free stamp sets of my choice) and I told ange I was going to get good friend. She replied by saying just take mine and use it, there are only so many bird cards you can make. Which I agree with. But I had lots of fun coming home that day and making this card -

I have used tangerine tango and chocolate chip sponged the edges and watercoloured the good friend stamp. So bright and fun!!
But my pride and joy is this next one - I am attempting to make as many of these during this week - an aboriginal bookmark to give out to our korean and Japanese friends!! Do you think they will like it? I thought it was very original, lol. I have used the seeing spots and polka dot punches in the back ground embossed in white and then the earth colour markers to do the kangaroo.
So there you have it...... May be my last blog for quite some time. I will miss you all, but hopefully while we are overseas I can drop a line and keep you all updated of what we are up to and where in the world we are.

Thanks for reading everyone!! Sayoornara jamata. (good bye and see you soon)
