Best Dad Ever!

Yesterday was a FAB day!!! My HUGE box of new goodies from the Brand New Catalogue arrived!! Look at the size of it!

Alas it isnt all for me!!!! About 1/3 of it is mine, the rest of for our Team Training Event in a couple of weeks time! Even though I have been a demonstrator for over 4 years, its still exciting to open a box of brand new goodies!!!

Once of the items I ordered was this stamp set called Best Dad Ever. Its a great value stamp set and I love the ties! I have ordered it in clear and I am going to cut the ties up on the rubber (if I dare!!) It comes with 4 brilliant sentiments for guy cards, ironically I havent used one on here, I have used a stamp from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set.

The colour combo is Old Olive, Marina Mist and Early Espresso with some Very Vanilla.

I also used the useful Woodgrain stamp set for the background.

Here is a little peek at the stamp set if you are fancying it!!! Great value at £16.95 in WOOD or £13.95 in CLEAR. I'm placing an order tomorrow so if you would like something adding to it please dont hesitate to contact me.

I thought I would leave you with this picture of my youngest!! He LOVES the new Glue Sticks and could not wait to use them on his homework!!! Did you know they are rectangular so you can glue in the corners easier!! You get 2 in a pack for £3.25 - how fab is that!!

Evan is taking one into school to put in his tray. I asked him what he would say if his teacher asked what they were. He said he would say "They are from Stampin Up, my Mum sells them from a Catalogue, but you might have to sign up!"

Ha ha ha!!!! 

See you tomorrow!
