Rudolph Challenge November

Good evening all,
Just a quick stop by with my card for the Rudolph Challenge which is held over at Scrappy Mo's
Why not join in or pop over and see all the great cards that are made for the challenge each month.

I will admit to you that this card was not designed by me but by a very talented lady whose classes I attend each month, Christine Dyer.    I unashamedly CASE'd it, with her permission of course!
Hope you all have a lovely day.

Take care

Sneak Peek!

Last week I was lucky enough to attend Stampin Up's first "On Stage" event in Brussels where demos from all over the world gathered to celebrate & acknowledge all the talented demos who have achieved so much over the past year.  We also got to see and touch new products that are going to be released in January in our new Spring/Summer catalogue.        This card has been made using the brand new  Bloomin' Love stamp and die set bundle!    
Bet you knew I would have to make a shadow box card to show case it didn't you?!

I can't wait to share all the other bits and pieces that go with this gorgeous set,  which become available at beginning of January with the launch of our new Spring/Summer catalogue.

I think this set is going to be very popular as it is going to be very versatile. 

Hope you liked my quick sneak peek.

Have a good evening all

Take care

Brussels WOW swaps

Hi there, boy isn't it windy out there!  Spent a while trying to keep upright on my trip to the dentist this morning!  Not my favourite place to have to visit and the only "good" thing about it was that I was able to be away from my work desk for a couple of hours!
Today I would like to share with you my WOW swap for nine other members of Stampin Stars.

Really time consuming to make but loved every minute of it.  I hope that the recipients did think it was a WOW swap!

Brussels Swaps -

Good morning, as promised I am today sharing the swaps that I made to take to the Stampin'Up! On Stage Live event in Brussels this past weekend.   What a fantastic event this was and what a beautiful place to visit, Brussels.  The architecture was stunning. 
We had very little time to explore this wonderful place but what we saw was truly beautiful.
Another thing that was also gorgeous was the Chocolate!!  I have never in my life seen so much chocolate in one place!  Of course, I had to sample some and can say with certainty that Belgian chocolate is the best by far!!
Anyway, back on track!

Not sure why I always choose to do swaps that take so long to prepare!  
This first picture shows the flowers that I had made which were then attached  to a couple of sticks of the gorgeous smelling cinnamon.  In the corner of the picture you can see the tags that I gold embossed and attached to some gold glimmer card.
The tag was then attached to the other end of the cinnamon sticks using the gold twine.

This was the final result!   After assembling the cinnamon sticks & tags I then cut out a little sweet treat bag and attached it to it. These very versatile bags can be used for lots of things, sweets, a greeting card, a gift card etc etc.

Here a couple of pics to show the different paper I used for the bags

I hope that the ladies I swapped with were happy with their swaps and to know that it was a real pleasure making them to share with them.

Thank you for stopping by today and don't forget to stop by to see the WOW swaps that I also made.

Have a great day
Take care

Trip to Brussels - Stampin'Up! convention

Just wanted to let you know that I am still here! 
I have been quiet over the last week or so due to the fact that I have been getting some swaps and pressies ready to take to the Stampin'Up On Stage convention in Brussels.  We had a fantastic time sharing with fellow demonstrators from all over the world.
Hundreds of very talented people all gathered together.  Very inspiring.

Please stop by over the next couple of days to check out what I had made for my swaps x

Have a good day.
Take care
