We're off on a three week outback camping trip tomorrow so I've made a very quick attempt at sketch 105 between spurts of packing. I'm sneaking in to my study when my husband is occupied elsewhere so he doesn't notice I'm not putting all my energy into our preparations.

The main stamp is by Stamp-it and the sentiment is Hero Arts. Punch by Martha Stewart.

Our resident diamond python made an appearance today. Usually he lives in our roof space and keeps it free from possums and rats. He has just shed his skin and is finding one of my hanging pots very cosy. He came out this morning to enjoy some winter sunshine. We estimate him to be nearly two metres long.

I made a card using a stamp from Stamp World, an Australian company. The text was printed on my computer.

Tomorrow we're heading down the south coast for a few days at Bateman's Bay.

Today I made some cards. The first is my first ever attempt at a challenge. I love simple cards and have been following Clean and Simple for some time. This is my take on Sketch 104. The papers are all by Kaiser Kraft, stamp from Gina K designs and butterfly punch is Martha Stewart.

This card is for our neighbour. The ship was cut on my silhouette and the stamp is from GinaK designs.

This next one also uses Gina K stamps.

I had a go at an acetate card with inspiration from the Hero Arts website. This is for my daughter-in-law. Both stamps by Hero Arts.
