1 million page views!

WOW yesterday my blog hit an amazing record! I went over the 1 Million page view mark!!! I have been watching it creep up for the last couple of weeks and then it caught me unawares and tipped over sometime yesterday afternoon!

Thank you to all my loyal and lovely blog readers wherever you are. Please leave me a comment today on here so I can see where my readers are from and how long you have been reading my blog!

Talking of loyal customers, last week it was one of my most lovely and loyal customers special 50th birthday so of course a card was in order for her! I used the Gold Soiree papers and of course my new fave ribbon the gold satin!
 The numbers were cut from the new Perfect Print dies and added to the front.
 And here is what the card was like inside. I wrote the message to Gill on the back before I tied the card back up.
 The middle panel has been stamped with the Too Kind stamp set. Thank you Gill for being such a fantastic customer and class attendee, your support is amazing!
Well it looks like it's going to be another gorgeous day today, I am sat her typing this at 09:11am and already I am melting! Looking forward to seeing any comments you can leave me on my milestone million!!

Team Gifts

Wow - it's another sunny day today, I feel so lucky to have had such fab weather so far this summer. Today is a bit of a chill out/jobs day in our house! I have lots of ironing to catch up on as its simply been to hot to do it! Might have to set up in the garden again to do it today!

This week I had the pleasure of sending out gifts to some team members for their achievements during Sale-A-Bration. I gave the winners the choice of one of my free items that I had earned to reward their sales, recruiting and leadership efforts and they wanted to wait for the new catalogue to redeem them! 
 I had to make a little card to go with these to send out and I finished them off with some Blackberry Bliss ribbon. I loved sending these out to the girls!
 Sweet little cards to reward my girls! Well done ladies!
Ok then the ironing is calling me, better go!

Engagement card golden style!

Hello there! Phew! I had a lovely lie in this morning, very much needed. Yesterday I ran my last class  until September. Although I LOVE my classes I am very much looking forward to having a few weeks off from classes and events to take time to be with my family and to plot and plan all the lovely things I will be sharing with you from September (more of that later)! 

On Friday night we were invited to an engagement party by one of Robin's cricket team friends. I don't really know them well at all but of course I had to make a card. I turned to the Cheers to Love stamp set which is a new set in the catalogue and is part of the wedding range. I did think though that this sentiment was also perfect for an engagement card too so I set to making it. 
 I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and I embossed it in Gold, the last photo on here shows how lovely it has come up! I never tire of watching the magic happen when you emboss an image with the Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out with the Banner framelits and then used some of the Gold Soiree papers for the background. 
 I added my new fave ribbon the gold satin! I am seriously loving this ribbon and I need to make sure I always have a full roll in stock as I think it will be on lots of makes and will be lovely for Christmas!
 Here is a photo showing just how lovely the embossing has come up!
If you like todays make then you may want to consider attended my All Day Retreat at the Mecure Hotel in Leeds which is part of my weekend retreat. I have places left for the full weekend and for the  Saturday All Day option and I just know the gold ribbon will be making an appearance in the goody bags!! Please check out my Classes/Events page for more details or drop me an email.
