The Big Reveal

Oky, so here is what was inside my gift box from Sherrill. 
She received it from Stampin' Up! and gifted it to me, saying that she knew I'd love it...and I do!
Silver and pearl, it is hand stamped with the words 'Be the Difference'. This is our theme this year and is also part of our Statement of the Heart, which you can see below...
I love creating and crafting. I hope that I manage to share what I love with you all, for you to enjoy!

The Wanderer Returns!

As you can see - I'm back from my holiday in Las Vegas. I had a great time, but there seemed to be tons of stuff to catch up on as soon as I got home.
I have 2 brand new Jelly Stampers members - Jan Brackpool and Josphine Larcher. Welcome to Team Jelly, Jan and Jo!  Also, Cathryn has a new recruit so another welcome, this time to Nikki!
Whilst away I was so fortunate to meet up with my friend and US demo - Sherrill Graff. Sadly, we were so busy catching up that we forgot to take a photo, doh! (Sherrill did take a photo of her lunch but I don't think you'll want to see that!) However, we had a nice lunch together at the Cheesecake Factory. This place comes highly recommended by me - I love to visit, but not as much as I love to visit with Sherrill.
Take a look at one of the super gifts I received from her:

Finally, somewhere specially made to keep my messy daubers! Space for one of every colour in our colour families. Do you think that there's a chance that not only will I be able to find them now, but that the place will stay tidier???

Now I want to show you something else. This was another gift, rather special.
Perhaps I'll just leave you with a photo of the box and see if anyone can guess correctly what's inside. What do you think???


Okay, I know it says the words 'pearl' and 'jewellery' on the box, so that gives it away a little bit. But I'm interested to hear what you think. Then maybe, just maybe, I'll show you what's inside! Ha,ha!

A Bold Thank You

I needed to make a 'Thank You' card but wanted something bold as opposed to flowery. I used Cherry Cobbler and Island Indigo along with the 'Hello Lovely' stamp set. Not sure if I took bold to the extreme on this card. Looking back, maybe this was more suitable as a male card than for the friend who received it, but I think she realised that the sentiment was the same - let's hope so!

Timeless Talk

Hi everyone! I don't know what's going on with my settings but, for some reason, my posts aren't publishing properly.Some of you will have already seen the cards from today's post, they're from a recent class using the Timeless Talk stamp set. I'd originally passed this set over but am now loving these cards. Two sets of 3 cards, suitable for men too.
