Male Birthday Cards

I have some male Birthday Cards to share today. I am always asked for Male card idea. It is often a tricky one.
I have used "All in the Family" & "Party this way" both are unisex stamp sets. I find if I choose my colours to begin with (usually from the colour coach or a colour challenge blog) and work from there.

Australian Flood Appeal

It is no surprise to me that Stampin Up Australia have just made this pledge which I have great pleasure sharing with you. They really are an amazingly generous company. For those of you that came along to my fundraiser last year, will remember all prizes they donated. Over $1000 worth!!!

As Flood waters continue to inundate Australia in what has been described as the worst flooding in 37 years, we express our deepest sympathies to those who have lost loved ones and homes and to those who's lives have been changed forever. We, like so many of you, feel a compelling need to lend support to all those who have been affected.

Stampin Up! demonstrators have a long history of making a difference in helping the life's of others-- especially when disaster strikes and the need is greatest. Nearly two years ago we watched another tragedy unfold in Australia. Our hearts were touched as demonstrator, customers and friends joined together in support of the Bush Fire Appeal. We have done it before and we certainly can do it again!

Please join us in supporting the Australia Flood Appeal-- A cause it which Stampin Up will donate $2 AUD of the retail value of sales of any stamp set (with a retail value of $30 or more) sold in Australia and New Zealand from the 15th January through 15th February to State Emergencies services Queensland.

Stampin Up have a new Promotion to start the new year! You get a FREE packet of heart treat cups valued a $6.95 when you purchase The Sweet heart stamp set or the Full Heart punch. As with the round sweet treat cups, this punch and stamps are designed to co-ordinate together.

They made the cutest Valentine's cards for you loved ones, especially if they have a sweet tooth!

I just wanted to thank all of my lovely customers and friends for all of their support over 2010.

I am looking forward to another great year of stamping with you all again.
