Get ready to celebrate with Making Spirits Bright by Stampin' Up!

There's nothing like the clinking of glasses of bubbly to say congratulations and Stampin' Up's new set, Making Spirits Bright, contains the perfect pair! Come and see:

This card was made for a member of my team who has achieved so much in a short space of time. I wanted to send her a card to celebrate and I hope champagne and gold sequins struck the right note!

The glasses were heat embossed with gold embossing powder and the champers coloured in with blendabilities - can you see how it's blended from light to dark?

I'll be linking this card up with Less is More where the lovely ladies are celebrating the 200th challenge with a Celebrations theme! Huge congratulations to you all, especially Chrissie who came up with the idea for this challenge site with her friend Mandi, and who has grown a wonderful, warm friendly crafting community.

I made a little gift to go with this card.

This little pouch was made with one of the envelopes from the Gratitude for Days kit on page 38 of the Stampin' Up autumn/winter catalogue. The kit was designed as a 'grateful diary', to be filled in and kept as a keepsake, but it's also perfect for presenting small gifts.

Want a peek inside?

Slide the band off and tucked inside is a handmade charm. Members of my team get a charm bracelet on their first promotion and a charm each time they achieve another title.

It's been quite a weekend! I never quite realised quite how restful our cat was until the puppy turned up! I think we can safely say that Eva has settled in now. She knows that she must go outside when she needs to go, sleeps happily through the night and as long as we feed her at regular intervals, play with her and give her lots of cuddles, she's perfectly happy thank you very much!

Look how big she's getting! Never lie on the floor when there's a comfy human to lie on, that's her motto!

See you tomorrow with more celebrations!
