NZSU Pics of the Week 26 July 2015

Hi everyone, I know some of you have had a huge weekend at the Auckland Extravaganza and by the looks of the photos on facebook, it was a definite "WOW" day. Congratulations to all who were involved.
A huge Congratulations must go to Kristine McNickle who has been appointed to the first "Stampin' Up" Global Events Council, awesome Kristine.
I have spent a good part of this afternoon making 4 x 4 note cards using the Butterfly Basics stamps and thinlits, I have to admit being smitten with this bundle and can't seem to keep away from it.
Have a great week everyone.

NZSU Pics of the Week 19 July 2015

I hope you have all had a great week especially those of you enjoying some fun times with children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews during the school holidays. I visited Christchurch with two of my grandsons for five days this week and we had a lovely time, one of the high-lights was our visit to Orana Park, even though it was extremely cold we loved it.
Have an awesome week everyone.

NZSU Pics of the Week 12 July 2015

Well here I am back in Auckland after spending a week Melbourne and this Wednesday I'm off to Christchurch with two of my Grandsons for the remainder of the school holidays. We went to The Warehouse this afternoon to buy, boots, jackets, scarves, gloves and beannies to keep out the worst of the cold. I am reliably informed that the best place to take kids to play in the snow is "Hilltop", so if anyone has a better alternative please let me know.


There are some splendid cards appearing on blogs and facebook using the new products ; "Butterfly Basics" stamps and thinlits have obviously been a huge success and the new "In Colours" are also very popular, I'm really enjoying using the new Tip Top Taupe, both the ink and cardstock.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 5 July 2015

Good Afternoon all, I have to post this a little earlier than usual as I have just had an email from my brother-in-law, in Melbourne advising that my sister has been admitted to hospital again, so I'm off over there to help out where I can.

I know a few of you will be holding school holiday classes for children, I hope they go well and you have lots of interest. Lets cross our fingers that the weather isn't too bad. 

I'm coming back from Melbourne on Friday night as I have booked flights to take two of my grandsons down to Christchurch in the 2nd week of the holidays, to visit with Southern branch of the family.

Have a wonderful week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 28 June 2015

How have you all coped with the severe weather this week? Even here in Auckland we had what for us were extremely cold temperatures and "Hard" frosts, However nothing compared to other parts of the country, like for instance, Methven; in case you missed it here is a photo of Alison Hyde's daughter building an igloo!
Enjoy your week everyone.

NZSU Pics of the Week 14 June 2015

Have you had a busy week with the New Catty? Lots of Launch Parties and hopefully lots of orders.
I've just returned from our trip to Bali and I'm still trying to get my body clock back to normal. We had a lovely relaxing break in the warmth, with the added bonus of spending time with my sister and her family.
Have a great week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 7 June 2015

Hello Stampers, have you had a good week?  I'm looking forward to seeing many of your creations posted on our NZSU Blog using the great new products in this years catty.
I note that we will be able to update our MDS program to "My Memories Suite" software, which I will be doing so I am able to continue using similar software to create these posts.
I am posting this from Bali where we are holidaying with my sister and her family. We are staying in a beautiful villa about 45 minutes from the airport, so away from the hustle and bustle and spending a lot of time in the fabulous pool.
Have a great week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 31 May 2015

I hope everyone has enjoyed Queens Birthday weekend and been able to share some time with family and friends. My awesome husband prepared a beautiful lunch for 11 adults and 4 children today, we had a fabulous afternoon. 
This Wednesday we are travelling to Bali to join my sister, brother in-law and niece for 9 days, we're all looking forward to some warm weather. I am hopeful I will be able to post "Pics of the week" from there next Sunday, but I apologise in advance in case I have any hiccups and am unable to do so.
Have a fantastic "New Catty" week.
