Good Morning and welcome to another Thursday Time Out!

If you are new to my blog you may not be aware that each Thursday I do a ‘Time Out‘ card.  It’s a card I hope will inspire and motivate you to create something to give to someone special.

I find we always seem to be busy – or too busy to do things for ourselves and I’m an avid believer in that you must take time out for yourself and do something you enjoy like making a card or having coffee with a friend.  We can get so caught up in looking after the hubby, kids, extended family and all the housework and such that we just keep pushing ourselves and then cant work out why we get sick or burnt out – if we just stop for an hour or so a week and relax and do something for us there is less chance to become burnt out and it is good for us physically and mentally.  Well that was supposed to be a short explanation – sorry!

This week’s card I’ve combined three of my favourites … Peaceful Petals Stamp Set, Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and Purple!


I love how these cards turn out!  They aren’t hard to do and the end result is a little different and just a little special!

Now when I was making this card I couldn’t decide which sentiment to use so I opted for both and made two cards!


The sentiments on these cards come from the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set – another set from the Occasions Catalogue that I really love!

How would you like to learn how to make the Scallop Tag Topper Card?  Well I’m starting something new – Private Classes!

What is a Private Class?

It is simply a class for you and your friends in your home – yep I bring the class to you!

In a Private Class you’ll create three lovely projects all for just $15!   Maybe you’d  you like to get the class for free?  Done! All my March Private Class Hostesses will get their Class for free and your friends can get their class for free by simply placing a minimum order of just $40 on the day! Too easy!

  1. This is such an interesting card, Leonie, that I would surely host a class and invite friends to my house if you could just come to Burlington, Iowa, US. I know, I know, too far–but I promise I’d put on the coffee! Well, I’ll see if I can figure it out myself anyway! Keep on stampin’!
