A Sneak Peek For You!

Hi everyone!  I am officially back on English soil.  My plane landed this morning after leaving Tampa just as a very angry storm was beginning to pass through.  I have gotten all my unpacking finished and the laundry started so I can start in on the task at hand, which is preparing my demos for the POTW shows beginning on Friday at noon.  I thought I would give you a little peek at some of the dies on the show.  The POTW dies are all brand new with the exception of a few of the Christmas dies from the last show are being brought back as we have had so many requests for them.  The majority of the Spellbinders dies are from the summer releases that were just shown at the July CHA show in Chicago.  How is that for being on top of things!  I decided on this card for several reasons.  First of all, it showcases several of the new dies which I particularly like.  The ironwork accents and motifs are stunning and very detailed, love them!  The picot edge circles are just a bit more than a plain circle but still fancy enough to coordinate nicely with other dies in this release as well as previous die sets.  I love the way these layer.  Secondly, this card doesn't give away too much. It is a simple card and it probably won't be a demo card, but it does show off another brand new product that will be on the show.  Can you guess?  Thirdly, it is yellow and gray, one of my personal favs! You saw that one coming, didn't you?  I've got to get to work now, but I just wanted to say that it is great to be back and I am really looking forward to the POTW launch on Friday.  I hope you will tune in to see all the great new dies and other new products and stamps!  All for now, Sue x

I think, it´s an amazing card, and I just love these colors too. It´s sooo simple and yet so elegant, and I admit, I just really loves it a lot. Wish I could join you on friday too SIGH. But that´s not possible from here, I´m afraid LOL.
have a wonderful time everyone and lots of crafty fun there.

Lush card Sue, TFS...I have no idea what the new product is, unless it's that metallic looking button in the midst of the bow...or the stamp?

Hi Sell Out Sue!

What fantastic shows. You are such a talented lady. I love how you can think out of the box and come up with different ideas. I hope you have time to recover from your jet lag and that you mom is having a speedy recovery. (My mum broke her hip a few months ago too.) Keep up the good work and I'm looking forward to seeing your shows tomorrow. (If there is anything left!)
