Its Official - Dannie's a Demo!!

Well its been a long time coming but Dannie is now officially an Independent Stampin Up! Demonstrator - YAY!! For those of you who know Dannie, you'll know why I'm so excited. She is a self confessed scrapbooking nerd and is by far the best Scrapbooker I have ever met! Her work is always absolutely gorgeous, she has such a knack for colour and design - I cant wait to see what she can do with SU! products. All I have to do now is work on convincing her to start a blog so you can all see what I mean!!!
Here's a card and little gift I made for her...

Here I've used the Baroque Motifs stamp set (my current fave!), Short & Sweet (for the Welcome), the new scallop punch (love it!), some white grosgrain ribbon, dazzling diamonds glitter and some Almost Amethyst DS paper from the Prints Sampler 6 x 6 pad (which is the promotion for May - more on this very soon). The colours are Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lilac and Sage Shadow.

I also gave Dannie a little bag of goodies to help her get started, as you can see I gave her some ribbon samples, some hodgepodge and made her some colour swatches. I thought I'd be tricky with the bag topper and make it a card which she could use in her workshops/displays. I adhered it with a temporary bond only. Here's the card close up on its own (colours aren't true to life in this photo for some reason...

The stamp set is Garden Whimsy, the greeting again is from Short & Sweet. The colours are Purely Pomegranate, Blue Bayou and Soft Sky (all new In Colours).

It's great to be able to share the SU! experience with another wonderful friend (and one that's close by!)

Isn't karen gorgeous, I'm so lucky to have her as my up line. My little pressie was awesome and so considerate especially as I am just getting started and needed some extra bits.Karen also made me some colour swatches out of all the different coloured card stock, so I will have no excuse not to be good with colours. BTW sorry it took so long for me to post but I have been having all sorts of trouble with my password.
