Ooooer! ...........

......2 posts in one day! can you believe that of me? Only cos' I just visited a pals blog & they'd done the name thing! - go on, try it - I know you want to!!

What My Name Means

You are very open. You communicate well, and you connect with other people easily.
You are a naturally creative person. Ideas just flow from your mind.
A true chameleon, you are many things at different points in your life. You are very adaptable.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are a seeker. You often find yourself restless - and you have a lot of questions about life.
You tend to travel often, to fairly random locations. You're most comfortable when you're far away from home.
You are quite passionate and easily tempted. Your impulses sometimes get you into trouble.

You are truly an original person. You have amazing ideas, and the power to carry them out.
Success comes rather easily for you... especially in business and academia.
Some people find you to be selfish and a bit overbearing. You're a strong person.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.
You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.

See you all soon!

Gosh, another week over!!

.....I can't believe it's gonna be October in a couple of days! Today the weather has been gorgeous & I thought it weired that it went dark so early!!?

Anyway, I've done a few more SU cards & thought you might want to see them?

This one is done with the 'Simply Said' set & the scallop circle punch.

This is my favorite one, I used 'Seeing Spots' set & the scallop circle punch - I think I like this punch!!LOL

And for this I used 'Seeing spots' & the tiny flower from 'Simply said' set ........... & yes you can see I used 'that' punch again!! & the corner punch to make my scalloped edge!

Well I have to get things ready for my crop tomorrow, so see you all soon!

Thanks for visiting me, it means so much!

I'm soooo excited..........

......... about the new Stampin'Up Catalogue!! It's available through me, so give me a shout if you want one! I know you're gonna love all the new goodies in it which I will be able to order from 1st October! Get your order in quick & be one of the first to get your mitts on the new stuff!

Well I've been busy making a few cards etc with some SU stamps & accesories, I hope you like what I've done?

I used the 'Bundle of Joy' set for the above, I just love it, it's so cute & looks great in any colour combo!

This one is the hostess set 'Oh So Lovely' which I'm afraid has been retired, there's some gorgeous sets to take it's place though.

'Seeing Spots' set for this one, oh & the 'Scallop Circle Punch' - I know I'm going to use this set over & over again, it's so versatile & has been carried over to the new catalogue which I'm pleased about.
And here's some Christmas stuff I've created:

This tree image is from the 'Old Fashioned Christams' set & looks as lovely in 'close to cocoa' ink as the 'old olive' I used previously - I'm gonna try colouring the images in next time I use this set.

This little gift card/envelope & card I made for my first workshop, it went down a treat! I won this stamp set on a fellow SU demo's blog & I love it!

My latest creation! I just loved doing this, I was inspired by another Stampin'Up demo in the US. I used the 'Perfect Presents' again on this along with the scallop circle punch & my corner rounder to make the scalloped edge - no need to do that for much longer though, not now there's a Scallop Boarder Punch in the new catalogue!!

Gosh, that was a long post!!

Oooops! nearly forgot..............

Here's a couple of pics of Henry & Olivia,(I know I've been promising them for so long!! - sorry!)

Olivia, taken just before they went back to Germany 5 weeks ago, she's such a doll!

And Henry, taken about 4 weeks ago, he just loves the camera, I'm so lucky to have such a sweet subject!

Henry is growing like a weed lately, he's gonna be a big boy! Olivia has started crawling & is walking around the furniture driving here mummy & daddy up the wall - bless her!

Anyway, I must be off now, I'm not gonna promise when I'll be back cos' I know I won't be able to keep it! LOL

See you soon & thank you for visiting me & taking the time to read my blog!

Home from holiday & hopefully.............

.......... ready to be a better blogger!! ......... ??

Anyway, we had a fabulous time, the weather was gorgeous & I was very pleased that I didn't have to climb stairs for a whole 17 days!

Stampin'Up has a new catalogue coming very, very soon & I thought I'd share a couple of sneak peaks ............

Do you like them? I think they're fab, especially the 'True Friend' set - here's another 2 sets for you to drool over ...........

I can't make my mind up which of these 2 I like the best, I'm sure I'll have both in my possesion very soon! LOL!

Also there's going to be a scallop boarder punch!!!

There's also some sets going into retirement from the old catalogue, so have a look through & give me a shout if there's anything you need & I'll let you know which ones are not going to be available for much longer - be quick though cos' once they're gone - they're gone!!!

That's me for tonight I'm affraid! Will check back tomorrow & upload some piccies of the evergrowing Henry!! .......... we missed him so much while we were away - we also miss Olivia just as much as we do everyday & hopefully we'll get to party with her at the end of November for her 1st Birthday!!

See you soon!
