Good times

I had a really fun afternoon yesterday - Stampin Up held one of its training days in Taunton so I got to spend a few hours with some wonderful ladies, laughing a lot and making some fab projects!

A big hello to all the lovely ladies I met and big thank you to Paula and Kelly for a great afternoon. This is a picture of my upline Jenny (front row, far left) and her team members that went to the training (I'm next to Jenny). It was fantastic to meet them all for the first time!!

These are the fabulous swaps that I received - such a fabulous selection, thank you all so SO much!

And these are the cards that I made for my fellow demos - I went for a simple, masculine card:

So now it's Sunday and another Stamp With Us challenge - this week's is a sketch, my favourite!!

Here's the sketch:

And my take on it:

Recipe: (All Stampin' Up! unless otherwise stated)

Card - Rose Red/Old Olive/Whisper White
Other - Circle Nestabilities/Ribbon tag dies/Pretty in Pink ribbon and brads/Crafter's Tool Kit

Awh I so wished I could have gone but I don't officially sign up until next week. I love your swaps too, simple and classy.

It's so great to be back and if you ever need a partner in crime to open up a craft shop down south give me a shout lol x

Glad you had a good time at field training! The cards you made for the swap look wonderful - simple and elegant.

The SWU card is stunning - I love all the little details like the brads and the piercing

Thanks for sharing :-)

My field training seems like such a long time ago now. Bet you had a great time. It's such a fantastic opportunity to meet up with people you feel you already know.

Beautiful challenge card as ever. I like the bow on it's side so that you can read the sentiment.
