I can't believe a week has already passed and I seem to still have an ironing mountain, I'm still running the children everywhere and I'm still chasing my tail. Anyone else feel this way?
However it's been a good week with Charlie gaining his badge 2 at gymnastics, he only has one more to achieve to have the full set and he also picked up 4 badges at Beavers and also news that he can move up to Cubs in September. So we have one happy gymnastical Beaver. Olivia has also had a good week with a trip to London to ride the London Eye and see Billy Elliott. She was so excited, but I can't say we felt the same excitement getting up at 5am to make sure she was at school by 6am! Thursday was a long day.
I've also had a good week as Stampin' Up! have announced some very promising changes to the business that will make life as a demonstrator even more rewarding with the promise of lots of fun and interesting rewards. If you'd like to know more and join in with the fun then contact me for a no obligation chat about being a demonstrator running it to your entire satisfaction at your own pace.
Now the other reason I know a week has passed apart from my tiredness level is there's a new challenge at Less is More. It is no less fun than any other that the ladies have set and this week it has a theme which offers so much choice - CIRCLES. I've used clear embossed circles from the Circle Circus and Medallion Background stamp sets to showcase some gorgeous buttons from the brights collection along with the odd one or two from the Oh Sew Suite big designer buttons in the mini and some circles from the simple understated bitty buttons. For inside the card I have stamped Circle Circus circles (good excuse for alliteration or what!) in rich razzleberry ink to match the base card. I love the simple but dramatic effects that the process of clear heat embossing achieves.
If it's not wet with you as it is across most of the UK then enjoy the sunshine and if you're getting rained on too then enjoy the perfect excuse for wallowing in your craft space!
Have a good one!
