You may have already noticed my new-look blog and there'll be more new things on the way too as Stampin' Up are publishing a brand new mini catalogue at the beginning of 2012... I've seen it of course, and I can tell you it's bursting with exciting new goodies! I can't wait to show you! I've used one of the new stamp sets to make a little new year card to take to a lovely friend of mine who hosted a party this week, so here's a sneak preview for you:
The misty floral panel is made with three of the flowers from a gorgeous new set called Fruit and Flowers. I love the effect of stamping onto Crumb Cake card stock using Whisper White craft ink and mounted the panel onto vellum to add to the translucent look.
This beautiful brad from the Antique Brads collection makes a lovely focal point on the ornate label from Everything Eleanor that I use so often. Aren't these brads wonderful? They come in several designs and look like elegant designer jewellery to me!
You can start ordering from the mini catalogue on 4th January when you'll be able to see it in my side bar, but do let me know if you'd like me to pop a paper copy in the post for you.

Stamps: Fruit and Flowers (available 4th Jan), Everything Eleanor, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Poppy Parade, Crumb Cake, Whisper White craft ink
Card stock: Crumb Cake, Vellum

I'd be delighted to order any of these supplies for you and 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.
I hope you had a lovely Christmas. Ours was wonderful - although we were a little surprised to be woken up at 6am - not by an excited 10 year old but by my hulking great 16 year old daughter! It was perhaps a little earlier than I would've liked but the five of us soon got into the Christmas spirit! There's nothing like being snuggled up together in a warm house, enjoying giving one another presents, eating excellent food and spending time doing the things we don't usually have time to do - jigsaw puzzles, watching old films on TV, going for long country walks, playing board games... My youngest son who thrashed us all at Trivial Pursuits stunned us all by going on a roll and getting three 'pies' in succession! "You'd better watch out boys!" he said in his best gangster voice. "I'm the new janitor and it's clean-up time around here!"
Thank you for popping in today. Have a great new year's weekend and I'll see you very soon!
