The sample note card tote box pictured with 'Little Benny'. Teddy bear making is also another hobby of mine!! The bears have been put on hold since I joined 'Stampin' Up!'

Here's one of the sample cards I made to highlight the new 'Oval All' stamp set. It is made with the Parisian Breeze textured speciality papers. Choc Chip ink was used to stamp the design onto Kraft card stock and then it was punched out using the Scallop Oval Punch. The Baroque Border was 'wheeled' on with Baja Breeze ink.

Speaking of 'fabulous friends' ... here's some snapshots of some of the lovely ladies that came along last night to make the 4 projects featured. Here's Jill and Susan making the 'Great Friend' card -

Carolyn is having fun putting the CD case together. I guess it will come in handy. Her new CD 'Reflection' is one of the best worship CD's I own.

Christine and Andrea enjoyed making the little note card tote and matching cards. Apologies to Lisa-Marie. How did I miss taking a photo of you?

Leonie is right at home making the cute 'owl' card and Jo is secretly becoming a paper craft addict but doesn't want to admit it yet!
