It’s on it’s way……

It’s on it’s way….yep Christmas is coming and as always I am far from ready!  I am still prepping for Convention which is just over a week away now. I am no where near ready for that either.  I do, however, have quite a few cards ready for writing and sending….and today I have two things for you…

Week 5 of Twelve weeks of Christmas…Here is a super quick card – I have managed to make 10 of these little beauty’s just this morning to add to my growing pile.  They are fabulously simple and use the Fabulously easy to use Envelope Board. Now I have been wanting to make something for you with the new tool from Stampin’ Up for a while – since I got it  – to be honest but havent quite got round to it…I also used Be Merry stamp which is one of the single Christmas stamps available right now as well which works really well with the Chalk Talk framelits.  And remember, you can buy any of the items I use in my projects directly from my online shop here – http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/stampdelicious   – just click the link and have your favourite crafting goodies delivered right to your door!

And second on my list…..

The final Stampdelicious by Stamp of the year (possibly!!!!)  yes this will  possibly be that last one for 2013 – and what a fabulous year you ladies have made it for me. Stampdelicious by Stamp has been far more successful than I could possibly have hoped and lots of you have emailed me with great ideas for moving it forward into the New Year – thank you for those ideas and please keep them coming. I may not use them all but I certainly appreciate the interest you have all taken in keeping Stampdelicious by Stamp going for next year!

So what are we getting for the final projects Lorraine? I am so glad you asked me…..I thought we would finish the year off with a stamp a stack…that means that you will make a stack of cards – Christmas of course! – ready for sending out.  I am going to put a strict time limit on this so I can get everything out to you as quickly as possible so…

Christmas Stamp A Stack by Stampdelicious by Stamp

We will make 20 cards5 x 4 designs and I will provide the envelopes as well so this is really good value at £17.99 for hand made cards everyone will love to receive.

Usual kit, I will provide card stock, ribbons, rhinestones pearls etc and you will provide tape, glue, scissors and artistic licence!

All orders MUST be in by Friday 22nd November – I cannot take orders after this date and get the kits out to you in good time. Kits will then be sent out starting Friday 29th November so you should have them over that weekend and first couple of  days into December, that way you can get cracking with them ready for sending out! 

So…Go ahead and book your place now – I MUST close this down FRIDAY 22nd November to get your kit out by 29th November….Use the PAYPAL button up there on the right to book your place now.

Okay, all done for today – I will be back briefly to give you next weeks Twelve Weeks of Christmas project so that you are not missing out whilst I am away at convention next but until then…remember to stamp your place in the world! xxxx

Lest we forget….

To day is Remembrance Sunday….need I say more. I find this to be terribly emotional and cannot watch the Remembrance Sunday ceremony on the television except at a distance. This doesn’t mean that I am ignoring it or denying anything. My Mum, who was born just before WWII, was very big on remembering what happened, the people that she personally lost as a result of the war and all the terrible things that went on and people endured. My Mum held some strong opinions about the bad people on all sides and took time to ensure that we understood there were two sides to every war and that neither ever did anything to recommend themselves. Both side were equally as heinous in their own way.

She never missed the Ceremonies and programs about it. Consequently neither did  we as children. As a result, I have a pronounced view on the war, the atrocities and consequences. Winners and losers and in my opinion, there were very few winners.

My Mum is no longer with us and she is badly missed. She would have loved to see the Remembrance Service today on such a clean and crisp morning, with the sun shining and the world looking good in it’s frosty coat.

When I observe my minutes silence this morning to remember all the fallen, I will also remember my Mum.

Lest we forget….

A quickie…for a Great Cause!
