Easy Events - for you

I have been a busy little bee over the last few days but today I was able to post off welcome packs to the lovely ladies that have joined my team, the Inkredibles, this month.

It is such a brilliant time to become a Stampin' Up demonstrator because not only do you get your incredible value starter kit for only £119, but Stampin' Up are also giving away an in-colour kit for all those joining this month. The kit, worth £27.95, contains an assorted pack of card stock in the latest colours, plus five, full-sized matching ink pads. What an amazing deal! And with 20% off all your orders and only £225 in orders to submit by the end of March, there's nothing to lose. It probably sounds too good to be true, but I promise there are no catches. If you'd like to find out more, give me a call or drop me an email - I'd be happy to give you all the information so that you can mull it over in your own time.

Would you like to see the card I sent to my ladies?

This one's slightly different to the one in the photo - I made lots of them in different colours. It features Fine Flourish which makes such a fantastic and subtle background for all sorts of occasions.

To make the floral inchie, I stamped the flower image from Easy Events and coloured it using a blender pen and markers. It's cut out using the 1 1/4" square punch and matted onto a coordinating piece of card stock cut out with the 1 3/8" square punch. I've recently discovered that a 5cm square piece of card stock can easily be turned into this scalloped mat with the scallop trim corner punch. The floral inchie fits perfectly inside - how fabulous is that?! The sentiment was stamped, cut out with the jewellery tag punch and tied onto one of the scallops with a piece of linen thread.

Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Fine Flourish, Easy Events, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Sahara Sand, Basic Grey
Card stock: Sahara Sand, Wisteria Wonder
Punches: Scallop Trim corner punch, Jewellery Tag punch, Square punches
Other: Markers, linen thread
I'd love to order any of these supplies for you and I can have them delivered to your address in the UK. I am committed to providing excellent customer service and am always happy to help and advise. Just send me an email or give me a call on 01280 820593. 

My daughter has just cracked me up! She and I have always had a thing about words and can have each other in fits with a deliberate mispronunciation or a dodgy accent. When she started learning other languages our repertoire grew so that, for example, she no longer shops at New Look, we prefer to call it Nouveau Regardez. Just now, I asked her whether she'd finished her homework. "I did," she said. "But I made a complete 'oreille de cochon' of it so I'm having to do it again!"

Right, I'd better get going otherwise we're going to have some very hungry people around here! Thank you for stopping by, for following my blog and for all your messages - I love reading them. Three Minute Thursday is back here tomorrow and I'll have a quick card for you. Until then, enjoy your day!

EDITED TO ADD: Oops! Looks like I made a  complete oreille de cochon of this post as it actually IS Thursday! I do apologise to those of you expecting a fast card today - I've had a senior moment! - but do pop back tomorrow when we'll have a one-time only 'Free-minute Friday'!
