Hi Folks hope all is well out there in blogland. It's only Monday and I'm exhausted already following a v. busy weekend and today my Stampin' Up! year started for real with a wonderful workshop at Sue's with lots of fun ladies and we had a giggle.
The weekend was busy as usual ferrying children to their social engagements. We did manage to have a meal out Saturday night with Charlie as Olivia was at a sleep over with 9 friends at her friend Tia's house. Brave Tia's mum is what I say. Olivia took handmade card and gift for Tia and I made a gift box similar to this and filled it with Lindt chocolates for Tia's mum.
Above is the card I made for Tia which combines the fun stamp set Party This Way which I received as a free gift at convention back in November and the gorgeous greenhouse gala designer series papers. There's a few rhinestones thrown in which 12year olds love and some lovely gathered ribbon in red satin. I used my crimper to add a little subtle texture in the daffodil delight cardstock beneath the ribbon. Wow and what a colour combo this is. Today at the workshop daffodil delight, pumpkin pie and in-colour pear pizzass went down a storm and everyone agreed what a fab combo for the coming spring and to brighten these gloomy days.
Remember if you indulge in these fab colours you can earn a free stamp set with every multiple of £45 you spend on product during Jan and Feb. My diary is busy with workshops, but I still have a couple of dates if you'd like to benefit further by hosting a party and earning more free sets. Just email at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
I'll be back soon with a picture of the Stampin Up journal that I decorated for part of Tia's gift.
