Stampin Up Santa's Sleigh Down Under

I was so excited  when I thought of this idea and could not wait to get it together.
Thank you so much  Carolyn Bennie for the pattern of the Reindeer.   I could not resist this idea.  Our Sleigh from down under(Australia).
It has taken a week to get all the parts together and I thought just to start again on my Blog this was such a good idea.

The Kangaroos are made with the Cookie Cutter Punch Bundle as well as the Santa Hat Punch.  All brought together makes this beautiful Kangaroo Design.
I have also used the Sleigh Die Bundle to make this card.  I hope it inspires you as the Kangaroo inspired me.  If you would like any details please email me and I would be happy to share it with you.  Also if you would like any of these Stampin' Up! goodies please shop on my ONLINE STORE if you are in Australia.
I would love it if you would leave a comment and let me know what you think about this project.
Have a wonderful day Crafting and I shall be back again next week with my next project.

St. Therese's Handmade Market Stall

Well  yesterday was an accomplishment in itself.  After so long out of action I was finally able to hold a small but encouraging handmade stall.  It was the very first the school had offered so attendance was small but great. Also school holidays had started and so some families had left for holidays etc.  I have included just a small range of the goods I had to offer.  If there is a next time I definitely have some cool ideas!  Only having two weeks for preparation I think I did quite well.  
The photo's that were taken were well into the fair so cards were starting to dwindle.  Thanks to my dear niece Catherine who took them for me.
