January CCC...just a little late...

I've been waiting so patiently for the gorgeous set of cards from Paula in Australia to arrive. I'm getting ready to make my card for the February CCC but I thought I should get January posted first.
Luckily, the sweet and lovely Paula has provided me with photos of the promised cards (the funky weather down under prevented her from getting to the mail sooner).
I do love this fun card exchange, it is so fun and easy to participate. There's no pressure, just make one card and send it on it's way. Then sit back and be surprised when a card lands in the mailbox from anywhere in the world. I love it....thanks goes to Deborah Nolan- Society of Stamp & Scrap-aholics for originating this idea and to all the wonderful card makers who participate each month.
So without further ado, here's the card that I sent to Anette in Norway....
I'm so loving this wonderful set of chair stamps from Hero Arts, it's called Wish You Were Here. I stamped the chair on pp and then made a background with more pp from the Restoration Collection by Crate Paper.
A sentiment and a few very simple embellies and I called it done.

Now can I just say that our dear Paula likes to do things up right. Not only did she make a gorgeous card for me....she made 4 gorgeous cards. One of the themes was Australia Day and I'm very honored that she shared cards with her country's big holiday.
I believe the answer to Aussie, Aussie, Aussie is Oy, Oy, Oy! Well done Paula, love it!

 I like how Paula translated for me....G'day Mate must mean Hello Friend!

Beautiful flower...this card reminds me of pretty package! Be sure to check out her blog, Scrappy Me. Thank you Paula for making these wonderful cards for me, you are such a sweet and generous soul. Blessings to you, dear friend!

 ~ Psalm 86: 4-5 ~
Give me happiness, O Lord,
for I give myself to You.
O Lord, You are so good,
so ready to forgive,
so full of unfailing love
for all who ask for Your help.
