I miss you - Ain't Love Grand!

You MAY have noticed that there's a new Stampin' Up catalogue being released tomorrow... ! I'm only ever so SLIGHTLY excited (she says jumping up and down like a mad thing!) But I've also got another exciting announcement to make:

My Christmas House tutorial is ready! This beautifully detailed house-style mini album is designed to take your photographs on the inside, incorporates a roof that doubles as a card and folds flat for posting in a standard C5 envelope. It's the perfect 'more than a card' gift for all your relatives! I've lovingly prepared clearly-photographed, step-by-step instructions with measurements given in both imperial and metric. You can buy it today for just £2.50 by clicking on the paypal button in my sidebar!

Now, shall we have another sneak peek? Okay - come and see a card I made with a set that isn't my usual style at all:

Isn't that plane the cutest little thing?! I've fallen in love with the retro feel of it. There are five other gorgeous retro images in this hostess stamp set and I can't wait to show you the rest! And have you seen these gorgeous new colours?! The darker colour is Island Indigo and the lighter is Pool Party and they just go together so beautifully

I can imagine putting other messages in this banner but I thought the 'I miss you' message was appropriate for today because no matter how exciting all the fabulous new goodies are, there are some retiring items that will be very sadly missed. Today is the very last day for ordering retiring items from the Last Chance List and the mini catalogue!

I thought this little person, waving madly, would be the perfect companion to the 'miss you' plane! One of the things I love about getting new stamps is see how they combine with my existing collection.

Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Ain't Love Grand (hostess set), All in the Family
Ink: Island Indigo, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Basic Grey
Card stock: Island Indigo, Pool Party, watercolour paper
Other: Stamp-a-majig, paper snips, blender pen
You can buy any of these supplies from me and I can have them delivered to your address in the UK. Just send me an email or give me a call on 01280 820593. Click here to view the Last Chance List - it's the last day to order from this list.

I'm not even going to start wittering on today - just in case I burst with excitement! But do pop back tomorrow and join the fun!

See you then!
