January class!!

Hello dear blog reader. WOW!!!! What a response to my last entry, I thank each of you so very much it was lovely to see those comments and nice to have confirmation once again that WE are all different and that's what makes the world go round. The bride to be has been in touch, she loves the designs and will sit down with her fiance (who works away during the week) this weekend and look into it further, I will keep you informed of the outcome.

Had my first class on the 10 th of January, and this is what we made.
A cute desk top calendar and a matching card.

Crazy for cupcakes stamp set and Sweet Always designer paper, Regal Rose, Choc Chip card stock. Cupcakes were coloured using markers, and the frosting on the big cupcake was made using salt, water and flour with a few drops of reinker( really cool, I might do a tut. on this). they were well received and we had a laugh like always, really love my classes and I know my ladies do as well.

I have finally organized a ribbon share. To join simply email me at with the title ribbon share. Join this and you will get AT LEAST one metre of every single ribbon in the StampinUp catalogue and have all your projects coordinate, elegant wide grosgrain, narrow grosgrain, double stitched grosgrain, silky taffeta, sweet gingham, gold and silver cord, get it all sent to your door for a cool £25.00 including postage, plus I will send you a little gift.

Last week I told you I have some exciting news, well I am off to find some sun. I will be spending two weeks here.(ps. if you ve been here let me know what you thought). It all happen very suddenly as we didn't planned to go on hols right this month, but I was at the risk of loosing some paid holiday from last year so we had to. I am excited of course, but this meant a lot of work organizing various things, and I want to say big huge thank you to ALL my ladies in my Stamper 10 clubs for bringing their orders forward, without their help I would have not been able to go, so if that s you reading this, I am very greatful to you, thanks. I am frantically working on projects and I will have scheduled posts to share with you while I m gone but I am also sneaking my markers and a few stamps in my case (DH doesn't know) and you never know I might even post a card I have made on my hols, you will know if I did as it will have sand all over it. LOL Take care hugs M xxx

    I could have recommened coming to Ontario, Canada for lots of sun (there is always sunshine when the temperatures are freezing (-32 degrees celcius with the wind chill)oh but it was warm sunshine you were looking for. Have a great time.
