Demo's Day Out !

Hi everyone,

Well today I had a wonderful day out with some of my team members.
Jenni Oliver invited us to her house for a get-together and we had a fantastic day.

The weather was warm & sunny - just perfect for the drive to the beautiful town of Gisborne here in Victoria where Jenni lives. I picked up my friend Debbie and we drove up to Jenni's together where we met up with Yvonne (our upline) and other members of our team and also some girls from Jenni's team.

We spent a lovely day together talking excitedly about what we were all going to order from the new catalogue as we already have ours - we're all going to be broke in the next month or so judging by the number of items on our Wish Lists !! LOL

As we have been able to pre-order some of the new stamps, inks and other items, some of the girls had brought along the new stamp sets to share them around for some stamping fun !

We had a great time playing with them and bouncing ideas off each other for cards we were going to make when we got home. Jenni then treated us to a beautiful BBQ lunch and we had all brought along some sweet goodies to share for dessert so a good time was had by all.

For a special treat (and to get us into training for Convention at the end of April) we all made cards /items to swap with each other - there were some fabulous ideas there and we all went home loaded with inspiration !!

Here is the card I made for the swap - I used one of the new stamp sets so here's a SNEAK PEEK at what you'll find in the new catalogue which will be available from 1st April.

For this card I used the Fresh Cuts stamp set with the Kiwi Kiss ink and the new Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss cardstock. The strip of blue paper is from one of the new Designer Series sets and these colours just blend together perfectly!

I added a bit of glitter to the leaves and to the flower centres to give the card that little something extra ! I managed to make quite a few of these cards over two nights so have a few extra ones to put away for that unexpected occasion when I need a card in a hurry and don't have the time to sit down and make one! Will have to get into the habit of making one or two extra of each card I make from now on so that I can build up a stockpile.

Well I hope you like this card - it's a SNEAK PEEK at some of the lovely things in our new catalogue so if you want to be one of the first to receive one of these new catalogues, contact me now and I'll send one out to you.

They are $12.95 a copy and I already have a box full so what are you waiting for ? Call me now to see what great products I'll be using in my upcoming classes !

Well, that's it for another day - must get to bed or I'll turn into a pumpkin - it's well past midnight and I really should be asleep.

See you all again soon - thanks for looking in :-)
