Asian Artistry Stamp-a-Stack

This was the other Stamp-a-Stack Design for May (click to make the pic larger) ... a few more layers on this one, and a richer colour palette. I just love the "Asian Artistry" stamp set. It's a Level 2 Hostess set in our Autumn/Winter Mini. I've helped a few ladies earn this set for free, by doing a workshop for them and their friends. I'm taking bookings now for July and August, so let me know if you would like to have a stamping get-together!
It's raining again here in Sydney. I've lost track of how many weeks it's been, but it feels like 40 days and 40 nights! It's at the stage where everything just feels damp.
I'm reading a really good book at the moment ("Still Alice" by Lisa Genova), and I just feel like curling up on the lounge with a nice cup of tea and burying myself in that. But that won't get the grocery shopping done, or my tote packed for tonight's workshop (Hi Kerrie!).
Besides, it's one of those books that you almost don't want to keep reading, because that brings you closer to the end. As opposed to another book that a started a couple of weeks ago - "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" - which I couldn't bear to read at all. I don't know if something got lost in translation, but I found the writing plodding and clumsy. It must be just me, because it got rave reviews. I gave up in disgust, long before I reached the end...maybe I'll just see the movie instead LOL
Well done if you've stuck with my ramblings this long...can you spell PROCRASTINATION? Blame it on the rain!

  1. Marelle - what a gorgeous set of SAS cards! Just LOVE the colour scheme!


  2. Still Alice is such a wonderful book. I read it again recently and it is just as powerful the second time through.
    Have a good day!

  3. I read the Girl/Dragon one and it was quite full on - a friend saw the movie and from her description I'm not sure I'd recommend it - very graphic. I read the other two also as I got caught up in her world. Haven't heard of Still Alice - will love to hear more about it.

  4. Hi Marelle
    I love your colour combinations on this card - beautiful!
