Last Christmas Post

Afternoon everyone. Well, as we're about to roll into a new year I figured that this was the last chance I'd get to show you all the lovely handmade cards I received for Christmas this year. I've got lots to share, many are using SU products* but all lovingly made and gratefully received! And, don't forget, these may be Christmas cards but you could use the designs with your own stash of stamps. * Keep an eye out for the SU stamps ,DSP, various dies, and even washi tape has been put to great use!
So, here we go.......

It always strikes me just how different the cards are even when using the same stamp!
Thank you all for your fabulous cards, now it's time to go play with some of the new treats we have in store for you in 2014!

Morning all!
I've still to show you all the swaps I received at Convention last month - around 100 of them! So, in an attempt to get a little organised (stop laughing!), I've pulled out all those with a Christmas theme and intend to post them here, in batches, throughout the day. Now, I know many of you are used to my fuzzifotos, with all manner of things in the background, but I'm just warning you in advance that my photographic skill has not improved!
Let the show begin!

Stampin' Blondie

Over the past dew months I've 'met' and been able to 'visit' with a US demo living in Italy. You will remember me writing about Anastasia who joined us for convention. Yesterday she wrote up 2 posts on her blog about her visit to the UK and attending the convention. She also showed some photos of the lovely colour book that was one of the gifts she made for me. I haven't posted photos of the book yet as I was hoping to add some bits and bobs to it first but her photos are so superior to my 'fuzzifotos' that I though I'd post them here.


How fab is that! The book is made using our This n That book and then embellished using pictures that showcase our four main colour families and 2 In Colour suites. I'm so lucky to have received this lovely gift, I look forward to adding to it over the next few months. 
Why not pop over to Anastasia's blog and take a look around, I love her style. You can see it via this link: http://stampinblondie.blogspot.co.uk/

Final Prep

This is what we've been up to today - final prep on our stand at the O2. I've got a few 'fuzzifoto's' to share...
 Adjustments here and there...

 Finish a quick lunch before the doors open.

Ready for the crowds and all 'professional'! We're there until Sunday evening.
Hope to see you!
