Apologies to all for being such a bad blogger this past 2 weeks. As a result of my rather nasty bout of flu it took me all my time to get everything ready for my launch party so I just wasn't organised enough to update my blog.
I am thrilled to say that my party went like a dream on Tuesday and everyone had a great time.
Congratulations to Maureen who won first prize in my raffle. Your big basket of goodies is on its way to you and I am sure you will enjoy all of it. Other congrats go to Jen W, Suzy, Sheila, Vikki, Jenny S, Gillian and Cathy who all won prizes too.
My thanks go to all my ladies who attended and who made the day such a wonderful success. I look forward to seeing you all again soon.
Here are a few pictures of my samples to share.

Just had to share this card with you to showcase just one of the NEW Bella Bleu papers from Stampin' Up!. ( I used Night of Navy rather than Not Quite Navy on this particular card) I have also used the brand new Eyelet Border Punch which is gorgeous.
I got my first order from the brand new catalogue yesterday and I am blown away by this paper. It co-ordinates perfectly with Kraft, Very Vanilla and Not Quite Navy cardstock and inks. It is such an elegant and stunning set of papers and I already know I will be ordering loads of it over the next year. I am already in the process of creating a concertina box and six cards with this set so class ladies watch out for more details and the samples at my launch party on Tuesday.

Sorry for the lack of posts this past fortnight. I have a few days away on holiday and brought the flu back with me as a souvenir which wasn't good.
On top of that we have just started work on our new kitchen so I had to empty it all which took forever. I am now without a "working" kitchen for a few days whilst the main work is done so it's all a wee bit chaotic here, however it is going to be gorgeous once it is completed.
So all in all I am a wee bit behind with my prep for my launch party on the 13th so will now be spending the next 9 days frantically creating lots of nice samples for all my guests to enjoy on the day. I thought I would share with you the invite I made for all my existing customers and extend that same invite to any of you who would like to pop in on the 13th. Just email me me for further details.

No I haven't gone completely mad, REALLY I haven't.
I am of course referring to a new Stampin' Up! catalogue year.
Today is the day that the brand new 2009/2010 catalogue is launched and I am thrilled with the goodies it has in store for you. I personally already have a whole new wish list with "must have" new stamp sets, gorgeous ribbons, accessories, punches and Designer Papers.
I have just placed my first "New Year's" order and as soon as my parcel arrives I will be busy beavering away to make all new samples for you to view at my Catalogue launch party on the 13th October.
I have a nice stock of the new catalogue ( Stampers 10 copies are already reserved for you) so if you are not yet in my Stampers 10 group but would like to purchase your own copy then please contact me. The on-line catalogue will be available shortly and I will post a link as soon as I am able to do so. Please feel free to email me if you wish to place and order.
