Joke: How do chickens dance?

Joke Answer….. ‘Chick to chick!’ ….. teehee.

Hellooooooo Monday! Hope you liked my lame joke to start off your week. 🙂

I can’t believe how many things I’ve got checked off my long, long list today. It’s amazing what happens when the kids and hubby go back to school right?

………… silence……….

To be honest it’s a little bit bitter sweet. This year is the last year that all my Bennie men will be heading off to the same school together. My husband Chris is the Assistant Principal at the primary school all 3 of my boys attend and my oldest son is in year 7 this year (which is the last year of primary school here in South Australia). You can see the cute family happy snap at the bottom of this post. 🙂

So last week I started back with some regular monthly card making classes here in the Adelaide Hills. I had a little break from classes last year and just concentrated on a card Club – but I thought I’d have a monthly card class this year and see what happens.

If you’re in Adelaide I’d love to have you pop along. We’re shooting for the first Tuesday of the month (family allowing) and I’m trying for a 9.30am and 7pm class on that same day.

The class is super cheap at $10 for 4 EASY cards… but I’ll need a good big bunch of ladies to regularly attend to keep these prices so crazy low. Head on over to my Facebook Page HERE to see my local events posted there and keep up in the loop. Or send me an email at

These where the cards we made last week. I had the original inspiration from my dear friend Alisa Tilsner who sent me a sweet card with this set, I then HAD to have a play with it myself. This stamp set is SO cute.

The class all use the Free gift with $90 purchase during Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Hey, Chick.. (thus my chicken joke at the top of the page).

What do you think?? I’m loving the new Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder #143231 $16.00. Love love love texture like that.

I think all the ladies were surprised just how easy it is to watercolour with our Aqua Painters #103954 $20 and the Stampin’ Up! Watercolour paper #122959 $8.75.

Remember the Stitched Shapes Framelits are BACK in stock…  yaayayyayay!! They’re $50 and the code is #145372.

I’d love you to join me live and chat, ask any card making or Stampin’ Up! questions you might have and see some LIVE card making demonstrations.

All you have to do is head over to my Facebook Page NOW and Follow my page (the button is at the top of my Facebook business page) then you’ll be told by Facebook whenever I’m doing a live video. Of course you’ll be able to see the recorded video if you’re not free to watch it on Friday morning.
