Join SU for £50, Retirement Lists, free gifts!

Oh my goodness - where to start with the news today?!

Join Stampin' Up for just £50! 

No, it isn't a typo - you really can join the gang for just £50, with a starter kit containing your choice of £55 worth of goodies, plus free catalogues and stationery! Check here for more details.

Stampin' Up Retirement Lists 2014 are here!

At this time of year, selected stamp sets and accessories retire to make room for exciting new ones when the new catalogue is released. Some of these products are being sold at discounted prices so they won't be available for long - don't let your favourites go!

The quickest way to order your retiring items in my online shop and that way you can be sure that the item is still available. Happy shopping!

Get even MORE for your money!

When you place your order today or early tomorrow you'll still get to choose one of these photopolymer stamp sets as a free gift with every £60 you order! Go for it!

With all the buzz going on here today, I thought I'd better show you an appropriate card! Come and see:

The honeycomb panel is made by sanding back embossed core'dinations cardstock. I adore having core'dinations card stock in all the Stampin' Up colours, so I'll be stocking up before that goes. It's a sad goodbye to the sweet Bug Me stamp set too. This happy-looking bee from the set pairs rather nicely with the Honeycomb embossing folder and that fabulous sentiment (just beeeee-cause!) which are both staying.

TIP: To make a trail template, doodle on a piece of window sheet and pierce along it at regular intervals. You can use it again and again!

I'll be linking this card up with CASology where the cue word this week is Bee!

but if you have any queries, or prefer to speak to me, I'm always happy to help.

This is what I've been feeling like for the last couple of days:

Ready to burst!

Talking of balloons, here's a top tip if you have small, bored boys in your house over half term: Sit the boys down, blow up a balloon solemnly and then let it loose - it should fly round the room making vulgar parping noises! Repeat this several times enjoying the sound of the boys shrieking with laughter and then let them take over. When the novelty wears off, you can tie a knot in the balloon and show them how to play balloon volleyball, using chairs as a net.

Sigh. Those days were much more fun than helping out with the GCSE chemistry revision!

Enjoy your weekend and I'll see you on Monday,
