Well what a two weeks it's been! Phew!

So I've had one class, two Stampin' Up parties, a new SU! Mini Catalogue launch. SU! field training and oh, just the little thing of


Just slightly busy then LOL! That's not including my "proper" job and being both a wife and mother too thrown into that lot too - it;s been a whirlwind!

So, in a whirlwind rundown.....the class was great - as usual - Crazy for Cupcakes was used and here are some of the cards that we made:

The SU parties / workshops were fun - some hardcore SU fans came and loved what the new catalogue brings us. Who doesn't want those oval punches?

Field training was great - always good to catch up with a bunch of ladies who just get "it!"

We always do a swap of cards / card fronts when we go to these type of events. Now for the first time ever, I didn't want to stress myself out with extra jobs to do with everything else going on, so I didn't sign up. Then I felt guilty! :) So last minute, I thought if I gave everyone chocolate, they might forgive me for not doing a card! So this is what everyone got from me:

The flower is from the new Petal Pizzaz set stamped in Regal Rose and the sentiment is from the Friendship Circles set stamped in Chocolate Chip of course!

Here are the Make and Take's that we made using the Forest Friends set which includes this tree, Bambi, Thumper and the Wise Old Owl :). I love this set and think it is great for all sorts of things!


I was also a very good upline and made a book for my downline to make notes in the meeting all personalised with Sweet always papers, Flower Fusion flowers (best felt flowers ever!), brads from the Hodgepodge Kit and chipboard letters coloured with my *new* marker pens and the White Doodling pen. I can't believe that the chipboard retained the proper ink colour (didn't discolour!) and there were no streaky colouring in marks either - they were great!

So.......Stamp With Us went live on Wednesday and we have launched the Challenges, the on-line class and the retreat in our first three days - what are you waiting for, get over here to find out more information! It's very very exciting!

Right well that has been the last two weeks in a nutshell. Now we are all up to date, I'll see if I can update a little bit more often - I'm hoping things will be calming down a little now :)

Have fun and enjoy the weekend!
