Stampin' Up! UK Miss Simply Scored does Frankfurt!!!!

Hello dear readers, it's been over a week since my last post because I've been very busy,  firstly fostering on trial a beautiful border collie from the RSPCA.  Having in the recent past been the owners of a gorgeous, but elderly border collie we had forgotten how much walking a young bouncy one needs and how much energy you use just walking long distances on a daily basis.  The upshot is we are hoping to adopt him and if all goes well I'll introduce you once he joins our household.
Secondly I've been to Frankfurt to the European Head Office of Stampin' Up! to visit the warehouse full of yummy Stampin' Up! products to pick my prize for being crowned Miss Simply Scored.  I left on Monday and took a friend with me!!
 You'll remember Fr'o'nk from the Stampin' Up! Incentive trip to Vienna back in June, well unfortuately Fr'o'nk is busy with the UK team preparing for our forthcoming training event and so Fr'o'nk suggested that his adorable girlfriend Fifi came along for the trip.
She is so much better behaved than Fr'o'nk so I let her sit up front on the way to the airport with me.
You'll see from the sneak peek card above that I came home with some stunning new stash from the warehouse and have used it to make a card for the Christmas Card Club Challenge which this time is a sketch put together by the lovely Kerry
Here's the sketch.
Why don't you have a go a designing a card using this sketch. Add it to your blog and leave a comment so I can see yours.  The colours I've used are indigo island, crumb cake, cherry cobbler, very vanilla and a touch of gold embossing.

I've also entered the Paper Players Colour Challenge.

 Here's me outside Merlin Logistics with Valerie (left) the french Miss Simply Scored and Helga (right) the german winner.  You can find out more about what we did and saw including this very interesting set of pallets by checking back later.
More soon from my Stampin' Up! Miss Simply Scored Trip soon.
