... it's Friday already, how did that happen?

Sorry for my lack of blogging, this week has been very busy!

We had my Working With One Sheet Wonders class on Tuesday (and silly me forgot to pack my camera!) which went brilliantly.
I've had such positive feedback so thank you girls, I'm thrilled to pieces you enjoyed yourselves!

Linda from my team came along which was lovely, and as a thank you for all her hard work so far (and a pre-convention gift - soooo excited!!) I made her this lot:

It's a bag-a-lope made using the square chocolate chip envelopes that come with the carousel notes and as we are The Sparkly Stampers I glittered some chipboard pieces and attached them to the front - complete with some ruffling!

I also covered a little note book, a mini post-it note holder and the little beady thing you can see at the side of the note pad is our team signature - a scissor charm!

I've got a pink (obvs!) scissor charm on mine and plan to make one for each person who joins my team (as well as some other goodies you will get as part of your welcome gift) so we can all be spotted!

If you would like to join my team or have a chat about the benefits of becoming a Stampin' Up! demonstrator please don't hesitate to contact me. Details are in my profile on the side of the blog ---->

I finally cracked open my brand new Bird On A Branch stamp set, I have to say these stamps are setting my mojo into overdrive!

I glittered the blooms on the branch and used some of the gorgeous real red satin ribbon. I hope you like it all Linda!

And on a personal note, look at this!

This is my little nephew, due in August. How amazing, can't wait to meet him!

Thanks for stopping by,
take care.
