see you in a bit x
I've made one card and one tag so far - not too bad for 35 minutes! I'm sure I'll slow down as the night wears on though...
So from midnight tonight, you have the chance to win a wonderful Stampin' Up prize!
There will be two prizes to give away, each one consisting of a punch, a stamp set and an ink pad ... a lovely little prize if I do say so myself! The first prize will be an early bird prize - to qualify you need to visit this blog between midnight tonight and 1am - this gives you precisely sixty minutes to win! All you have to do to be in with a chance is leave a comment, and if you are also a blogger we ask that you mention the challenge on your own blog, link through to here and then paste your blog link in your comment. If you don't have a blog, fear not, leave a comment and we will still enter you into the draw.
The second prize will run from 1am until 12 midday on Thursday, so if you aren't an early bird (or should I say late!), then you still have a chance of winning a prize. The same rules apply, leave a comment and link if you can. I will announce the winners chosen by a random number generator on my blog on Thursday so check back to see if you have won!
Don't forget, Lousette and Suzanne will also be giving away two prizes each, so you have six chances to win! I hope that's enough to whet your appetite - as I am now off to begin my crafting very shortly! (No pressure with all you watching, eh...)
I can’t wait to see what goodies we have to play with and to share them with you later. No pressure on us though to create something good with you all checking in, eh! This is somehow very different to magazine deadline pressure – this is real life action, so I hope we do the products justice.
In the mean time, maybe I’ll share something else instead! To get me in the mood, I’ve been looking back at my old card designs, and some of those that I’ve used stamping on. Festive again, but I know so many of you will be organised crafters and working on those already – I wish I were!

...I have been asked as one of three people in the UK to showcase some of the brand new Stampin' Up! products on Wednesday evening at midnight! The new catalogue is being launched on Thursday (1st October) and Stampin' Up! have asked three crafters who are independent from their demonstration programme to take part in this exclusive blogging event.We are going to be sent a box of brand new materials, along with their current products, which we are allowed to open at 6pm on Wednesday evening. We then have six hours to create craft projects with them and we will be posting the first sneak previews of the new products and what you can create with them on our blogs at midnight! This will officially be the first unveiling of their new catalogue products. How exciting!
I really love Stampin' Up products as they are of such a high quality, that it makes using them so easy! So I'm really looking forward to this challenge. Will you join me? If so, spread the word on any forums that you visit and I will see you back here on Wednesday evening!

It's made with a similar theme to the button wedding invitations that I made - in fact, that's where our idea came from for doing them! It's simply a present made from buttons, with some lovely embroidery stitching to complete the ribbon bow. Voila!
Continuing with the food theme, I tried another recipe recenty from the Jamie Oliver Ministry of Food book - Salmon pesto with green beans and I added lemon cous cous, it was lovely.
