It's been a while!

So ... 8th of April ... and I think about 100 demonstrators in New Zealand (and even more in Australia) are waiting ...

We, like all our customers, had to wait until 1st April to put in our first orders from the new catalogue, of course, with having to wait until the last minute to book my trip to Brisbane (I'm going to the SU! Convention - yay!), on 1st of April I wasn't flush enough to make the big order I would have liked anyway - I put my order in yesterday, a lot smaller than I was dreaming of ... but I'm now in the waiting club as well! I've ordered the new In-Colours, some new papers and other accessories - I can't wait to show you them in my workshops after I come back!

Meanwhile, I was lucky enough to have two stamp sets from the new catalogue that I could show people at my last two workshops, and the wonderful product that has moved from the old catalogue to the new one is still well and truly worth showing!

As part of the convention experience, I've been busy making 100 card tops - these will be swapped with other convention goers and I will come home with 100 different card tops, which makes for great ideas. However, yesterday I was bored with cutting out the same flower, and the same colours, so I had a play instead. The All in the Family set was brought out for a month last year as a special fund raiser and is now in the new catalogue, it looks like it will definitely be a favourite with my customers!

I had a play yesterday, I used water-colour crayons, water-colour pencils, Stampin' Write markers directly and Stampin' Write markers with my aqua painter ... then made them into very simple bright cards :) I have to say, my favourite look/way to colour these, are using my aqua painter with either the pens, or stamp pads!

Today ... I really have to finish those 100 card tops ...
