HAPPY 1 st of OCTOBER !!!!!!!!!!!!!

YAY!!!! Finally the day where the new catalogue is launched is HERE, I was up bright and early this morning getting all my pre orders ready to be placed into the system by 11 am. So if you ve pre ordered something from me you need to know that the mission is completed order is with SU and I will update you as soon as the status changes to Shipped, also I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your support. Of course I can now change my picture in my side bar and start work on more inspiring projects using the fantastic new product!! And my God have I got a lot of new stash coming from the new catalogue due to my promotion bonus. ( yes you get money to spend on yummy stuff when you reach certain promotion levels) EXCITED!!!
So I m showing you a card I have designed for my downline organized shoe box swap at High Wycombe last month. Is a simple card( we had to allow 15 min/project) and it was inspired by the old catalogue cover, over this last year with SU I wanted to case a few of the cards in the catalogue and never did so now was the time, the colours used are very autumnal and one of my favorites. Really Rust, Old Olive and Choc. Chip and the set used is the ever so beautiful Simply Said.

My next card features one of the new sets *True Friend* and it was made for a German friend and demo Irene. Irene is the German dream team member for UStamp has won a prize in one of my weekly UStamp chats, she got in touch saying she would rather have one of my cards than the prize and said that she could buy any SU product but she coudn t buy one of my cards anywhere (isn't that so sweet?) So here it is the card I made for her, colour combo is So Safrron and Basic Gray, the ribbon is Basic Gray taffeta. Two background stamps were used to make the background of this card, Paisley was stamped in So Saffron over Whisper White and the Sanded was stamped in Versamark and white embossed over the saffron layer, try this if you have the Sanded background the effect is just lovely. Pearls from the Pretties kit finish the card off.

Ok now I ve got some exciting news!!!!

I am so excited to let you know that Heather and Dawn are going to be hosting another round of UStamp......UStamp 08 Holidays which is "The 12 Gifts of the Holidays"!!!!! You guessed it, Holiday themed projects, that of course can be altered and modified to suit your needs!
