Morning all!

I hope you're all enjoying your weekend whatever you're doing, be it relaxing, crafting, shopping etc!

Well I went to a SU training day yesterday held here in Leeds. It's my first training day as I have only been a demo for just over a month now and I had such a wonderful day. Got lot's of hints and useful crafty tips, and I got to meet lots of lovely fellow crafters. Now at such events everyone creates some projects to swap with all the other ladies, a great way to be inspired. Well, I underestimated my swaps a bit and only made 40, but there was 70 ladies, oh well I know better for next time! So here is the swap that I made, a topper that can easily be added to any card base.


CS: SU Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo

Sentiment: SU Vintage Vogue

Stamps: SU I heart hearts

Tools: SU Scallop Trim border punch, SU Colour spritzer tool, SU stamp-a-ma-jig

Misc: SU markers, Foam dimensionals

I love the pink and purple together. I though this card could be used not only for a love themed occasion such as Valentines day or an anniversary but to give to a friend as well!
I got the spritzer tool for christmas and have really enjoyed playing and experimenting with it. You can create lovely backgrounds with it if you use a few diferent colours and depending how close to the paper you are, it gives different splatter effects!

Well I have an afternoon filled with crafting ahead of me , I will be busy finishing my table favours and place name settings. Only 9 days left until I get married and only 3 days until we leave for beautiful Mexcio. I will take pictures of my wedding favours/table decorations that I have made to show you on my return. Lot's to do in the next few days so might not be around much.

Thanks for stopping by today and if I don't see you again before tuesday i'll be back in 3 weeks with lots of pictures to show you all!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~

I couldn't go yesterday as my girls were in an Irish Dancing comp so hopefully we'll get to meet another time.
Have a fantastic wedding, can't wait to see the pics.
