A VERY Sparkly Reason to Smile

Hi all yes I do exist & yes I have been a very bad blogger & I'll try & do much better.

I thought I would share with you all one of the projects that everyone made at a free event I ran last weekend at my home.  Stampin' Up! for the month of June are giving away a very cool stamp set A Reason to Smile - now I love 2 step stamping & I love FREE.

One of the cool new products we have in our range is Irridescent Ice Embossing Powder it sure does sparkle. The stamped image has been lightly tapped all over with a Versamark pad & then the EP poured on & heat set - the picture does not do it justice.

I also wanted everyone to play with our too, too fabulous Adorning Accents Edgelit dies & matching framelits. The colour combo is Baja Breeze, Calypso Coral & Daffodil Delight - the combo came from the Color Coach & I love Calpyso Coral - such a happy colour on a dreary winter afternoon.

And we finished off with Pat's Apple & Date Cake which was fabulous & I've promised everyone the recipe in my next newsletter as it was so scrummy!!! So if you haven't signed up for it get your name down fast

If you'd like to know more about the promotion don't hesitate to contact me if you also like FREE :)
