I still think is Sunday!!

Hello is so odd as I feel like is Sunday today but is not. I am on tender hooks (along with 300 other SU demoes) as tonight we get a glimpse of the new things to come in the new SU catalogue launched on the 1st of October, we also get a chance to pre order a small selection so you can imagine just how important day it is today. I have so many things I want/wish for and I am hoping I will get quite a few of them in not ALL>(what? can't I dream?)
I have also place a big Almighty order for catalogues and I am giving you a chance to preorder your copy for ONLY £2.50 plus postage. You can reserve your copy today to be sent to you at the end of September by sending me an email to I know you will want to see the new book as soon as possible and I will get those out the door as soon as I receive them.
A new challenge has gone up yesterday over at SWUS and this time is a sketch again. I decided to make a Z fold card which was very much inspired by the talented Jenny over at Stamping Moments, I tend to stick with plain card designs.

Real Red , Chocolate Chip card stock, Old Olive designer paper and the ever so beautiful Silent Night stamp set. I cut a snowflake from the Winter post set only because I was working on my October Class when I did this card so it was there in front of me. The image was coloured with the ink pads and lashings of dazzling diamonds dazzling glitter have been applied using the tombow multi glue. It sparkles very much so.

Now Luca's second birthday is fast approaching (scary how fast time goes) and of course I am hunting for present ideas. this little boy is mad about cars and he likes nothing better than to sit in a car and fiddle with every wiper, indicator levers or hazard, windows, stereo buttons for ages. So as he is started to climb out of his cot we have decided that we will buy him a bed and what better bed than a car shaped one. We still haven't found the ONE yet but we managed to narrow it down a bit. I did however ordered the cutest plaque for him from this lovely lady. Juls and her hubs make the perfect team when it comes to handmade plaques and she has a good selection in her ebay shop. She made one for Luca that reads Luca's Broom Broom and is just delightful. It came while there were here last weekend and his face lit up when he unwrapped it. First words he uttered? BROOM BROOM. I loved seeing him so happy and he was delighted with it. Thank you Ju this is a gift he will treasure I'm sure as it will hopefully hang on his new bed, and I am very touched by your generosity.

Look at that happy face? oooh I could eat him whole. Have a great week hugs Monica xxx
