Christmas Party at Stamp Group.

Yesterday was my monthly Stamp Group session... and this year we had a bit of a party... you had to wear a hat/Christmas earrings/Christmas broach - bring some yummy Christmas food and a Secret Santa gift...  All great fun

This is a montage of photos from the day.  Showing the girls all working hard.... and a look at our yummy lunch.

And this is a good photo of my friend Sue and I together

Dawn & Sue

I had a very successful day ( a shortish one as I left at 4.30)  - did a set of 9 cards using the same sentiment circle ( free here from Gina K) using the design Gina used in her video (here)
The cards are all about 4 1/4" square.  Did another couple of the mini cards too, plus two normal sized cards and two scraplings... all very CAS and quick.

Here's just a couple of the pictures of the set

I'll share some more as the week progresses.  These are all 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" and followed Gina's design.  I used a variety of background papers.

Had to come home early as we were having guests for a barbeque.  I LOVE barbies.... so easy to prepare.  Green salad, tomato cucumber and onion salad, beans with feta and beetroot cubes and some new potatoes and mint.... Hubby cooked muscles in their shells for starters and the steak with the salads.... everyone was so full, that we didn't even get out the strawberries for dessert.  The weather didn't play it's part though... windy and cool, but we did manage to eat outside.

Well better fly as I have heaps of ironing.... I tend to leave it for 3 weeks then have a pile to do.... My Bad!!!!

Have a great week all

Looks like a lot of fun with the ladies! Great photos of everyone- especially you and Sue :)
Love your card set, Dawn! I'm trying to come up with simple lay outs for quick cards and this is so perfect! May have to borrow from you :)
Good luck with the ironing- I think it's my LEAST favorite thing to do!!

This is so much fun, Dawn! And you look so festive with the fun hats too! Is that kitchen inside the craft store or is that someone's house? Love all the photos!
