Wishing you Luck!

Evening all!

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend? I'm working this weekend but so far it's going ok and I've still found some time to craft!

So at the end of my last post I said that I had some exciting news to share with you all. Well if some of you thought that a little baby might be on the way, I'm sorry to dissapoint (those who know me well know me better than that!). The news is that I am now officially a Stampin Up Demonstrator, which I personally think is much more exciting!! Lol! After using their products for years, I have finally taken the plunge and decided to join as a demonstrator, I don't know why I didn't do this years ago as I am a huge advocate of their products! I have already received my starter kit and wow it was like christmas when it arrived, I didn't know what to play with first! So watch this space for some new projects made with my new stash!

I haven't been able to photograph my most recent projects yet due to poor lighting so today's card is one that I made earlier as they say on Blue Peter!! I made this card for a girl at work who is leaving for a promotion. By now you probably know I am the CAS queen, and I just love pink, green and Kraft (crumb cake) together, such a pretty colour combination!


Materials

CS: SU Crumb Cake

Paper: SU Retired designer series

Sentiment: SU Sincere Salutations and Elzybells

Tools: SU scallop trim border punch, SU stampin marker in choc chip, SU stamp-a-ma-jig

Misc: SU retired felt flowers


Now I know have used some retired products, and I would apologise but I am still trying to use some of the endless mountains of stash that I have. I have however used the fabulous scallop trim border punch that I got for christmas which I just love and one of the sincere salutations sentiments. Now this was the first I ever set I bought from SU, I adore the font design and with 8 sentiments in the set for only £21.95 it pretty much covers all occasions for a great price. I must admit that I have added the 'wishing you' from another stamp from my stash, but this just shows how versatile SU products are! I positioned the sentiment using my stamp-a-ma-jig, which was also another of my first purchases from SU, I just don't know what I did before I got this. I am such a perfectionist when it comes to my cards and this helps to line all your sentiments and images up perfectly!

Well thanks for stopping by tonight. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and if you would like to ask me about any of the Stampin Up items I have used then please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
