New Goodies...

My order arrived yesterday from Ginny (the Stampin' Up Demonstrator) after the Demo evening last Wednesday.

As it fitted with both of us, Ginny delivered the goodies to me at work :)  The down side of this was that I was sat trying to work at my desk, while thinking about what was sat in my car... maybe not a good combination LOL.

So... I decided to use 2 hours of Lieu time and head off home early!!!

I decided to lay all of my new goodies out on the desk & take a picture to share with you all, however I had one problem... I could not see enough space on my desk to put all of the Goodies!!!  This meant that I had to have a clear up (which was really needed!).

Here are all of my Goodies, including: 1 Paper Pack; 2 Stamp Sets; 1 Butterfly Punch; 1 Ink Pad; 1 pack of paper peircing guides (I can't remember the real name for them) Dimensionals & a glue rubber.

The one I am most looking foward to playing with is the 'Lovely As a Tree' stamp set, but in the end I did not get time to start using them this afternoon :(

I already have another shopping list on the go for bits that I want to get, but they will have to wait a few months. I know that the Stampin' Up stuff is not cheap, but the quality of anything I have brought from them is great!!!!

Stampin' Up Evening

Following on from yesterday's WOYWW post we had a great evening with Stampin' Up Demonstrator Ginny Beard.

Due to a lack of space in the conservatory I asked Ginny for a Demonstration using the Stampin' Up Products (rather than a Make & Take event). I must say a very big Thank You to Ginny, her Demos were great and I think we all came away with more ideas for Cards & Projects.

It was a bit of a squash but we all fit into the conservatory :)

This was Ginny's First Demo and when the Gift Holder was completed she filled it with Chocolate Eclairs & gave it to me as a gift :)
Delta & Jumanji also made an appearance during the evening, comming into the house for a quick visit - well that was until Delta decided to discrace himself and poo on the carpet (guess who had to clean it up though!!).  We do say that we have the best spot cleaned carpet in Lincolnshire!!

WOYWW - 21 November 2012

Once again it is Wednesday... where have the last 2 weeks gone????

So it is of to Stamping Ground for the weekly Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday, this week will be a very quick post as I have been cleaning like mad.
So why have I taken a picture of a very empty conservatory??  Well later this evening I have booked a Stampin' Up Demonstration, here at my house.  So 7 friends will be visiting for a craft evening.

I already have my shopping list written out, but I am sure there might be a few last minute additions!!

Happy WOYWW.

We travelled back on the Ferry from Denmark to the UK during Tuesday evinging, arriving in Harwich at 12:30pm yesterday. When we went down to the car deck to start our drive home we found this mess...

The car parked in front of us had not used his Handbrake and during the rough crossing (winds gusting Force 9!!) his car had slide into the one to the right of us and the car to the right of him. Luckly our car was undamaged :)

Spiderman Birthday Card

This card was created using a Kanban Spiderman - Wall Crawler kit (ref No CON9043), I can't remember where I found it but I just HAD to have one for my Nephew's birthday card.

It was very easy to make, with Spiderman being made up of 4 layers.

Also with the card was a 2nd sheet of Spiderman elements, these will be used to create Table Place Holders on the day of his party (I hope to add photos later) and will complement the Spiderman Plates, Cups & Napkins... well it just had to be done!

Happy Birthday "L"
