ESAD Farewell to the Annual 2020-2021 Catalogue

Hello and welcome everyone to the ESAD farewell to the anual is always so sad to see much loved stampsets go. ESAD is a group just for Australian & New Zealand  SU demonstrators who give support to one another. More important today as we share ANZAC day with our kiwi neighbours across the ditch. Just a bit of history -  ANZAC is an acronym for Australian and New Zealand  Army Corps which was a grouping of several divisions created in the Great War of 1914-18. On the 25th April 1915 the ANZACS were part of the allied expedition that set out to capture the Gallipoli peninsula. Each year we remember all our fallen service men & women from all wars.

Now you may have hopped across from Denise Buetler and I can't wait to see what she has used. Now tonight I had a hard time deciding so I chose my favourite first - Beautiful Friendship on page 115.

This stampset will be kept as it is so versatile and I love making quick easy cards with it. Also in the top left hand corner is the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots that are retiring as well.
My next card is using Waterfront on page 129.

It is a great stampset for beginners to use as they can make a card so quickly.

Now I do love making cards with scenes and leaving them blank for words until I need them.

This stampset used on the card above is called Snowfront which is on page 58 of the catalogue. I have also used the embossing folder Subtle 3D on the Highland Heather layer which is also retiring...sigh.

Thank you for joining us tonight and now please hop across to Rochelle Blok and I can't wait to see her creation.
