Yesterday we had a Stampin’ Up! Regional Training Day in Christchurch and it was Great! Actually it was beyond great. It was lovely to catch up with and meet so many of my fellow team members and other local demonstrators. And along with the usual great WOW! demonstrations and make’n’takes there were some surprises too. Its great belonging to the Stampin’ Up! family as there are so many lovely ladies (and men) involved. A big thank to Emma and her helpers who made us a flower folds brooch each and to Helen McEwen from Inglewood and her team of helpers who made everyone a special surprise too. It’s funny that the first things to sell out at our local supermarket after the earthquakes were milk and …um… chocolate. But everyone including Helen knows that a Stampers best friend is CHOCOLATE . Thanks ladies for these special touches to out day!
Anyway there was a name tag competition and guess who won it…..ME! I was so happy because I get to choose a free stamp set as my prize. I used a brand new product called Bevelled Windowpanes so look out for them in the new Autumn Winter Mini Catalogue due for release April 1st and my favourite Broadsheet alphabet. The Chantilly Lace is in the Summer Mini catalogue which means it is only available until March 31st!!
Here is my swap card. Its a little bit different as it is a gatefold but the picture has been punched so each alternate piece opens a differnet way to separate the picture. Easier to show you with a picture. No doubt there is a fancy name for it but I dont know. Thanks Christine who showed me a card that inspired my one. The tassels on my key are made by unraveling some of the in colour ribbon
Thanks for your advice on yesterdays card ladies I will wait till next Friday to draw a name from the comments to get a little piece of “happy mail”.
