Simply fantastic

The clue is in the title. Remember I was hinting at last week that I couldn't reveal some things to you until later? Well, later has come and I'm excited to tell you that Nikki is going to be in the 'News' section of Simply Cards & Papercraft on sale November 12th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok, I don't expect you to be jumping around like I am LOL but I'm so excited and I can't wait to see it for myself. By then my 'store' should be up and running properly with all the right buttons and gizmo's so it's all looking good. I have one or two more tricks up my sleeve to be revealed at a later date but feel free to try any sort of bribery that involves a cappuccino and an apple and cinnamon scone from Eat to get a heads up sooner!

I made this card last week with a stamp set I have wanted for ages and finally got it when my lovely mom....the Judy... brought it with her when she visited us in July. It's from Gina K and it's called Retro Boutique. There are 18 coordinating images and sentiments so you can mix and match to your hearts content. I've teamed it up with my favourite pp, Basic Grey, stitched around the edges and add some ribbon from PTI. I know I've said this a few times now but I'm really going to have to get one of those tent thingy's for taking pictures because none of the pictures I'm taking do the cards justice. They look so much nicer in real life.

I've got a busy day ahead of me (is there any other kind???). My SIL has ordered 14 personalized notebooks for friends for Christmas and I only started yesterday. I cut out all the chipboard and pp yesterday and managed to make 3 last night though I haven't personalized them yet. I'd like to get them finished by tomorrow so I can tick something else off my never ending list. Thursday is the first day of the SECC and Annette and I are going to arrive as close to opening as possible. Nikki will be there so I'll be checking her out at the Craftology stand.
Hope you have a great day!
Catch ya later x
PS - Nikki went on sale at Precious Memories in Langley BC yesterday!!!!!
