NZSU Pics of the Week 25 Sept 2015

Hi de Ho Stampers, a very stormy weekend over most of the country, I hope that none of you have been affected by the flooding experienced in some areas. 
The beginning of the school holidays heralding the last term of the year bringing us ever closer to Christmas. I have started creating Christmas cards over the last week and hope to have these completed well before I need to post them. There are many inspiring Christmas creations being posted and blog hops to follow.
Have a fantastic week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 11 Sept 2016

We are heading into the silly season rapidly and Christmas cards are being posted all over Social Media. This year we have some very "Summery Christmas" sets available in the Holiday Catalogue aimed obviously for the NZ/Australian market, however there are also some wonderful traditional images for those who still favour traditional. Personally I love traditional and have decided to use "Santa's Sleigh" bundle for my cards this season, with lots of glitter! It was a toss up between "Santa's Sleigh" and the "Star of Light" bundle which I also love, maybe I'll need to get that bundle as well because I'm seeing some beautiful creations using the "Star of Light" Isn't it awesome being able to get sets in bundles, love it!
Have a fantastic week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 21 August 2016

Aloha from Hawaii this week, we are here on holiday with 2 of our sons and their families. It is taking me some time to acclimatise to the very hot weather, coming from the cold wintry blast we've just had in NZ. However many of the stores we have visited in the past couple of days have been air conditioned, enabling us to help out the local economy. We're having a lovely time and I hope you have a fantastic week.
PS: I'm sorry this post is late, I forgot we're a day behind here. (Ah well, Island time)
