Stampin Up Gorgeous Grunge makes a fun Christmas Card Wreath
I promised this morning I'd be back with another quick post. I'm a little later than planned as I was late home from Onstage 2016 at Telford and was happy, but shattered and so slept in. My earlier post was scheduled.
Our day was so much fun yesterday. I travelled over on Friday with some friends and we stayed once again in the most delightful B&B. On arrival, we sat in the victorian sitting room with its roaring log fire, drank tea and ate homemade scones, strawberry cake and for those that liked walnut and coffee cake there was some of that too. I was ready to curl up and snooze then, but headed out to the CentreStage event laid on by Stampin' Up! for senior managers. We had a short presentation and then a delicious meal and we received a gorgeous back pack which is the same colour as a new colour coming in soon. I will share a pic tomorrow as I'm not allowed just yet. I can share some of the fun at the event though.
Table I sat at were awarded some balloons as a bit of fun. So here is me before I took them back to our B&B for my friend Mikaela's little boy to find when he woke up the next morning. He's only 5 and I'm sure he loved the outgoing in colour balloons!
The tables were beautifully laid also and decorated with these stunning flowers.
Yesterday at the actual Onstage Event we were given a copy of the new Stampin Up 2016 - 2017 catalogue and you can almost see it here as my bestie Emily received hers! Sorry to tease, but we can't quite show it all just yet.
Now my card for this fortnight's Christmas Card Challenge. Our challenger this time is Valery who set the theme of Red Berries. I've created a fun, modern wreath card and used real red candy dots for my berries. I stamped around in a rough circle using one of the stamps from Gorgeous Grunge in garden green ink, added the berries and also cut a red foil card bow using a die from The Wonderful Wreath Framelits. There is also the inevitable bling of some tiny rhinestones for added sparkle.
Don't forget to visit the others in our challenge who have some great inspiration for Red Berries.
