Weekend away anyone?

Hello, ooh the third bit of news has been announced ages ago over at StampWithUs but I managed to forget that I didn't told you about it on here as well. I know sooo many of you are excited about the on line classes and we had a FANTASTIC response already but I also know that there is nothing better then a proper get together with lots of like minded people all sharing the same passion and all leaving as friends. Well we are making it all possible after months of preparations we have finally decided to offer the first EVER card making Retreat featuring inspirational classes and projects made entirely with exclusive Stampin'Up! products. Are you a Stampin'Up! fan? are you an avid card maker looking to constantly discover new techniques and try new ideas? are you scrapbooker who would like to branch out into card making and extend those skills you already have? then this is for YOU!!!! the Classes are going to be amazing and inspirational (think gift ideas, home decor, projects for him, projects for her, all sorts You Won't Believe It!!!), the atmosphere is going to be FUN and full of laughter, and all in all WE are going to have a BLAST!!! I know just how popular Scrapbooking Retreats are and it was my dream to offer something similar to card makers out there and WE HAVE DONE IT!!! Lots of you signed up already and certainly Saturday is looking like is filling up nicely so have a look at the different options and come Stamp With Us!! I would love to meet you and spend a whole weekend enjoying ourselves. Have a look here for all details and go on treat yourself to a weekend of fun, or even a full day if your finances don't stretch to a full weekend.

Yesterday I promised you a card and here it is, I LOVE this one!!!. I bought this set for one reason only, to demonstrate the spotlighting technique.( it is brilliant for so much more though)

Now like I was telling you yesterday I made this as an exact replica to the one I have made for my friend Michelle, only that hers was in Tempting Turquoise to match her blue eyes and I can assure you it was just as lovely. I embossed the Fresh Cuts background stamp in black onto my Whisper White layer and stamped the wine onto the pumpkin Pie layer with P.Pie ink then simply stamped again and punched out my spotlighting bit( the gorgeous flower head) coloured it using the Marvelous Markers, the *fabulous friend* sentiment from Oval All was layered onto a Scalloped Oval and I've used the same markers ( Summer Sun and Pumpkin Pie) to add colour to the tiny flower. Rather like this one you know. Hugs M xx
