I do you hope you enjoy the ticking over of the clocks on New Year’s Eve and I also pray that 2014 will find you happy and healthy and that you may be blessed beyond your dreams!
I have heard a lot of people say they are glad that 2013 is over however, even though there were tough times my 2013 was pretty good all in all with earning the Stampin’ Up! Grand Vacation and then it becoming a reality as well as attending Stampin’ Up! Convention in Utah plus meeting so many of my Stampin’ Up! friends who I’d known for years and only dreamt of meeting them one day – well both those dreams came true! So my prayer for you this year is to have some of your dreams come true!
Now I’d love to go on this year’s Stampin’ Up! Grand Vacation and I could use your help – all you need to do is to either join my Stampin’ Up! family and share your passion with your family and friends or to hold a Stampin’ Up! party with me before the end of March or to simply just place an order with me. Now for every $90 that you spend between 28th January and 31st March you’ll a free product! I could say it’s from me – well it is in a way lol – nah it’s actually from Stampin’ Up! and it’s called Sale-a-bration!
Here’s a card I made with one of the free sets Banner Blast ….
My oldest had a birthday party to attend on New Year’s Eve and thought this set would be perfect but after making the card I thought it needed something to just lift it a little ….
So I grabbed one of my markers and created some faux stitching – worked a treat!
Banner Blast has 6 little banners like I’ve used on the card and it just so happens there is also a coordinating punch you can also get for free during Sale-a-bration. Gotta love Stampin’ Up! coordination department!
Now what’s a card without a gift?
Using the Envelope Punch Board I created this little gift box for Caitie to pop her present in as she requested this exact box. The bow was also created with the Envelope Punch Board.
How cute? Would you like to make these at your party? No problems – you can even change the colours – contact me now to book your party in so we can Sale-a-brate in style!

Parties where I can share my love for stamping and also have my team grow!
Here’s the card that Yvonne chose as her make n take for her Stampin’ Up! party ….
You may recall this card from May 2011 when I used the Hostess set Punch Potpourri – Yvonne saw that card and had to make it! Where there is a will there is a way! So I just redesigned the card using current (and soon to be retired) items.

I just love this card and so has everyone who has made it over the last few weeks. Its such a queasy card!
Here is the card side-on so you can see the dimension in the butterflies and I just love Elegant Eggplant and Cherry Cobbler together – and I mean love it!
Now one of the reasons for my absence can be summed up in one photo ….
Yup I finally got a new car and it smells sooo good and I love love love it!!
Doesnt the neighbour’s wattle look awesome!?!
My poor old Magna Wagon was really getting very old and starting to show signs of being an 18 year old car … and you could hear her moan so not a good sign.
