Hello there is a beautiful morning once again, I have been loving seeing this nice weather this week, unfortunately didn’t manage to take advantage of it as most of my jobs were inside, oh well. 
Today is THE LAST DAY to order from the current catalogue and mini catalogue. If there’s anything left on the I have to have list please order it as soon as you can.
I am soo excited for tomorrow, I finally managed to finish all my samples for the displays at 3 am this morning and all I have left today is sort and price my retired merchandise that will be for sale tomorrow at my open house. I have cut all the layers for my make n take( well my dad did bless him) but have not yet decided on a design so I need to do that as well.   If you are planning on coming please let me know so that I can prepare.
Oh and I mustn't forget the baking that’s happening today too but that is as easy as chuck everything in the bowl pressing a button, wait for 30 seconds and pour  into the tin to bake, did I tell you lately that I love my Thermomix? Red heart
I am sharing today another project made with new catalogue yummies, this time a stamp set I received while on the Incentive Trip in Prague. I adore this set and this card was made for a recent Passionette swap that Dawn kindly agree to organize and host for us. I got some absolute beauties back that I am sure I will share on here over the coming weeks and even copy them, but for now here is the one I have made.
Star of the show one of my fave new In colours Calypso Coral, look at that pop of colour!!
The base is Basic Gray I have embossed the bottom section using the Vintage Wallpaper folder, then I stamped and inked the base.  The frame was stamped in Crumb Cake, cut out and attached to a torn layer of Pear pizzaz card.
Stamped the flowers onto Calypso Coral with Tangerine Tango and Cajun Craze ink and cut them out with the perfect snips.  
swap close
Crumple everything, arrange and add to the base.  Time for some yummy gathered lace ribbon, spritz everything and  voila !!                                                   The sentiment is from a new set too and got this on the fabulous Incentive Trip. I love being a demonstrator, have you thought about becoming one? Get in touch for a no pressure chat, there’s never a better time to join or re join than with a new catalogue coming out. My email is telemech01ataoldotcom.
Right got to dash see you again very soon. Hugs xxx
