Pony Party and Tote-ally Tess

Morning all, hope you are all ready for the ESAD Blog Hop! Better grab a cuppa as we will be hopping around for a while. I guess you are wondering what ESAD is? It stands for Extra Special Australian Demonstrators and it is an online group just for Aussie and NZ demonstrators for Stampin' Up!
We love what we do and not only do we like to share it with our customers, friends and wonderful Blog visitors, but we share what we love with fellow demos. We run swaps, challenges, tutorials, product know how and cyberstamps and we are always there to help and support each other when needed.
So if you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.
I hope you enjoyed looking at Ann's Blog..and now here is my contribution.
I loved every single thing in the Autumn-winter mini catalogue (and bought most of them) but two items I purchased for my own personal pleasure were Pony Party and Tote-ally Tess...
I have three grand daughters and they are mad about My Little Pony, so it was my DUTY  to buy this set. I used Melon Mambo card stock with the matching polka dot ribbon. The pony is water coloured, with Dazzling Diamonds added to the tail and mane... I love all the little extras that come with this set...this pony has had wings added

Same pony but no wings this time!! For the background I stamped the tiny flower from Season of Joy and the flower posey is made with the single flower from Eastern Blooms. Pony Party (119179) is going to be a big hit around here for birthday invitations! (I am not selfish two of the grandies have already played with this set and made themselves some colouring pages)
The other set I bought for my own pleasure was Tote-ally Tess....I wanted it to make personalised stationery....But there is so much more to Tess....sure she loves to stamp and scrapbook but she is a party girl at heart.

Here she is on her way to a birthday party! For this one I paper pieced Tess using various designer papers. The added accessories are the balloon from Crazy For Cupcakes and the tiny cake in her hand is from the Short and Sweet set. The sentiment is from Heard From the Heart (119167) I stamped it in Whisper White craft ink but will remember to emboss it next time so it stands out. (I love all the sentiments in this set and it will be well used for sure).

Ooh La La Undies and Bra!

I have seen this idea all over the net and just had to make one...sooo cute!

The back of the card is a little bit cheeky! ha ha. I used  Sweet Always designer paper and the cardstock is blush blossom. This is exactly what I look like in my jox.....ok are right it looks nothing like me....but I figured granny undies and cellulite wouldn't look tso great lol.

A simple card I will be doing in  a free workshop on Saturday..I think I have done this in every colour combo now!

I would like the thank the lovely Sandi McGyver for so willingly sharing this super cute bunny template...I will be making a few of these for the Grandies

And lastly this super easy little Easter Treat...I saw these very cute marshmallow bunnies at the shops and had to buy a pack...they are individually wrapped in a little cello packet so I just had to make a little pouch with a window...
I would also like to show you the double slider card I made but it has disappeared into thin air...which is a pain because we are making them in  Stamp Club tomorrow night...looks like I will have to knock one up quick smart!
