Another post in a week - what the????

Yes it is true readers, I have managed to drag myself here and make another post this week - strange, but true!!!!! I wanted to share another special little card that I discovered this week. This is a "Never Ending Card" - there's directions everywhere for it and I found mine on SCS - Dawn3577 - what a legend. This card is so simple when you know how. The picture at the top doesn't do it justice, so I've added a video for you to see how it actually "works". If anyone is interested in learning how to make these, let me know and I'll be happy to demo it for you.

Nothing much has been happening this week apart from lots of illness here at home. We rushed Maggie to hospital on Friday night with a very high temp. I spent a good portion of this week in bed absolutely knocked out with sinusitis (yuck!!!!!) - it's a good thing Jerry is well!!!!!

OK, I'm off to get ready for some VSN action this weekend on SCS. If you haven't experienced it yet, you should. It kicks of at 6pm (CT) Friday night in the US (22nd August) which is 8am EST Australian Time Saturday morning. We now only have about 14 hours to go - guess who's excited????

For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about - VSN stands for "Virtual Stamping Night" - except it goes for 2 days LOL!!!!! There are usually around 18 challenges posted. 6 on Friday night (US time) and 12 on Saturday, every hour on the hour from set times. The challenges range from sketches/layouts to techniques and themes. The overall weekend has a theme and this weekend is Book weekend. We have 45 minutes to complete each challenge and then 15 minutes to photograph, upload the photo to SCS and clean up, ready for the next challenge. Sounds constrictive, but it's not. It's done on the honour system. If you're late starting, that's fine - you start the challenges whenever you can, but once you start, you time yourself to make sure you don't go over the 45 minutes.

It should be heaps of fun and I hope to be able to share with you all next week some of the cards I make.

Until then, I hope you all have a great weekend and Happy Stamping!!!!!

Hey Cav, that card is great, very effective. Reminds me of the snap dragons we made as kids. Clare
