Sketched Birthday & Weekly Deals…………and Moo Moo is back!

carolynbennieink.wordpress.com

 

Moo Moo is back!!! This was an AMAZING day in the Bennie Family. Moo Moo is my middle son Macauley’s very special toy that he’s had since he was a baby. One day late last year we realised that Moo Moo was gone. I mean really really gone. At first we thought he’d just fallen under the bed or was in a toy box but after a few weeks when he didn’t show up we all started to get worried. I turned the house upside down looking for Moo Moo, I would have brilliant idea in the middle of the night and be found digging through the linen cupboard (was he trapped inside a fitted sheet???) and to be honest the kids room got a super big clean out as I crawled under beds and riffled through wardrobes. But to no avail. Moo Moo was just plain gone.

Life without Moo Moo was hard. Macauley was in tears when Moo Moo missed Christmas and then our summer beach holiday – the pain of loosing this little fella was very hard for a loving 6 year old. I was a mess too…… I hated seeing my little man so sad. So after a lot of Googling I found another New Moo at a toy store in Queensland. Macauley was excited to have a ‘New’ Moo and the order was placed.

So with ‘New’ Moo now taking pride of place in Macauley’s bed we tried to move on and hoped that one day Moo Moo would come back to us – but to be honest I thought he was never going to come back, perhaps he somehow had been thrown out 😦 . Until………… My oldest son Finn was playing in the sand pit outside and let out a huge shout  “MOO MOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”  Yep, Moo Moo was found under a bush at the side of the sandpit. After us all dancing the happy dance,  Moo Moo was carried straight into the laundry and washed, and washed, and washed, then washed with fungal wash three times and scrubbed.

Below is a photo that shows pure happiness…….

Now Moo Moo AND New Moo take turns in Macauley’s bed at night and life is peaceful and happy for my little man again. But you might ask how did Moo Moo find his way out to the sandpit…….. see below the culprit ………

Fudge our 3 year old cavoodle.

Here she is looking very guilty watching Moo Moo in the washing machine. How do I know it was Fudge? Well that fact that the very next day I found her burying Moo Moo in a pile of the (now clean) washing AND just yesterday I could hear Moo Moo’s bell as Fudge carried him down the hall way!!! So naughty!!! While it would seem Moo Moo and New Moo have a stalker we now have to be put them up high every day for their own protection. LOL.

Now for a bit of creative inspiration. I made these two birthday cards using the Sketched Birthday stamp set for a couple of kids birthday parties my boys attended. Lots of sponge daubing and a little watercolouring made me very happy.

Which colour way do you prefer? I love this set as it’s great for adults or kids. It’s a stamp set that gets a big all round work out not just a few images. I’ve also used the fab paper stack from the Occasions Mini Catalogue -Fresh Prints designer series paper. It’s really good value with 48 sheets of 11.4 x 16.5cm paper. There are 4 of 12 double sided designs so you have lots of different designs to mix and match.

I think I like this one on the left but I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Photopolymer Stamps (completely clear stamps) now available

demoheader_photopolymer_demo_5-1-2014_sp8ff411583795661a8962ff0000f7f0e6

 

Stampin’ Up! searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. They’ve found it! I’m excited to announce that with the release of the upcoming 2014-2015 Annual Catalogue, will have wood-mount, clear-mount AND photopolymer stamps. Our top-quality photopolymer stamps stick extremely well on our acrylic blocks, are durable, and the transparent nature of these sets makes it easier to line up your images without the need of a guide. This is a feature that is particularly helpful with alphabets, borders, and backgrounds! Photopolymer is clearly a great choice.

Will you want to wait until the catalogue comes out to try this great new product? Of course not! So, beginning 1 May, Stampin’ Up! are introducing two exclusive photopolymer stamp sets: Show & Tell 1, and Show & Tell 2.

These great new photopolymer sets are designed to be used together. Even better, you can order both sets in a bundle that comes with an amazing online class-featuring tons of great project ideas using Show & Tell 1 and 2.
