My Stampin'Up Workshop........

Last night I had 14 crafty ladies around my house for a Stampin'Up workshop,which is why I haven't been around much the last few days with all the preperation going on behind the scenes. Jodie,my eldest was my hostess with mostess looking after my guests,getting drinks and taking orders,I don't know how I'd have managed without her,she also looked after my niece all day while I set up.
 I started the evening by doing a workshop,making a quick and simple stamped card,I had to do three sittings as I haven't got a very big table,lol but I don't think they minded waiting,there was a lot of chatting and laughing going on and the chance to look through the catalogue. We had a raffle for a set of SU stamps which the lovely Maria won and lots of special offers.
Here's the Make and Take that the ladies got to do.



This card was using SU Going Green, Four Frames and Butterfly Prints,the butterfly and frame have a coordinating punch which is so much easier and quicker,

and here's a few photo's of the night.....










It was a great evening and everybody seemed to have a good time and loved their card,which I was pleased about. My friend Libby is hosting one next month so I get to do it all over again,it's all good fun. If anybody wants to host a workshop in the West Midlands area and earn free stamps and products get in touch,
I had a lovely surprise in the post yesterday all the way from Las Vegas, Kirsty sent me a beautiful handmade 'Thank You' card. Thanks Kirsty,love it !!!!


Paige finished school officially on Wednesday so for a treat I'm taking her to Birmingham tomorrow for a shopping trip and then staying over at the beautiful Malmaison hotel overnight. I'm really looking forward to it but can't believe the baby of the family has left school,do you think I can still call myself a SAHM or should I change it to Homemaker,lol.
Thanks for stopping by.Have a great weekend,everyone !!!

It looks like you had a great evening. I think you should still be a SAHM and be proud of it.

See you soon.
