CAS Colours & Sketches - Challenge # 249

Welcome to the second challenge of the month, and it's time for a sketch. Samantha has designed this one for us.


For some reason this sketch had me a totally flummoxed and it took me some time to get my head around it. Not helped by a really bad head cold that I seem to have picked up from somewhere.  Anyway, this is what I came up with.

Fun at the November OnStage Local plus the STAMPARATUS

This past weekend I was able to spend time with my team and other Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the UK. I was also able to catch up (very briefly) with a demonstrator that I met way back in April 2016 in Australia when I attended an event there.

There is an awful lot I can't share with you just yet but I can say that the 2018 Spring/Summer catalogue is fabulous, and yes I do already have a copy of it. That's one of the perks of attending the event. Here are a few photos that I can share with you.

Friday night was Centre Stage for Silver Elites and above. Thanks to my team and customers I have been able to attend these events for the past few years. At Centre Stage we have a business presentation/discussion which was lead by Andrea Withers from the home office and then dinner. It's a great chance to meet and chat with other demonstrators in a much smaller group.

CAS Colours & Sketches - Challenge # 248


Welcome to November and this month it is Samantha's turn to host the CAS Colours & Sketches challenges.

To start the month she has a colour challenge for us.


I'm afraid I went with the obvious this week - Christmas! The question was whether I should heat emboss or not for the Metallic Silver element? In the end I did both.

The top card has the sentiment embossed using Silver Embossing Powder, and I also added a strip of Silver Glimmer Paper.
