The New Autumn/Winter Catalogue is here with videos!!!!!

I've been so excited looking through this new catalogue as my mind immediately started buzzing with ideas for creating for Christmas.
The catalogue is full of ideas for you to try too. Also some of the pages in the catalogue feature a Stampin' Up! Interactive icon, which means there's a video showing additional product details. You can find this at There are at least 20 different instructional videos on this page now, so do pop over and have a look.
Here is one showing you the new Simply Create Christmas Banner:

LNS Fall Treasure Hunt 2013

I have joined a group called Positively Late Night Stampers (LNS). It's a group run by an incredibly friendly, supportive and inspiring group of  Stampin' Up! Demonstrators and they have organised this fun for you.

Would you like to win a Prize? Then join our TREASURE HUNT.  
There are 3 Countries participating - USA, Canada and UK, and each of those countries are offering their own prizes. 
I am offering a prize for someone who enters this Treasure Hunt and lives in the UK. 

Will it be you? (Please note that prizes mentioned on blogs in the US and Canada will be of significantly higher value due to the large number of participating demonstrators on that continent).

It's not too late for any other UK Demos to join us if they have a blog. Email me for more details if you're a UK Demo interested in participating

Here is how you play this Treasure Hunt:
  1. Visit each of the blogs (in all 3 countries) listed below (although not necessary, it would be appreciated if you had time to leave a wee comment)
  2. All the participating Treasure Hunt players will have this picture and they will list their clue.
  3. Make a note of what the clue is, and also whose blog it is on.
  4. You have from today Tuesday 20th August until Friday October 25th to collect at least 50 clues from all the blogs and say where you found it.
  5.  If you live in the  UK, please email your entry to me at by Friday October 25th at 8am GMT (that's midnight PST). If you live in US or Canada, please send your entry to the Coordinator from your country.
So for everyone living in the UK, I will pass on all correct UK entries to Lesley Lendon, our UK Coordinator (thank you so much for kindly volunteering Lesley) and you'll be entered in the UK drawing on October 28th 2013 and the winner announced on 28th October 2013

Celebrating 32 years of marriage!

Hello... yes, it's 32 years since we were married. We exchanged cards and went out for a lovely relaxed meal and spent the evening reminiscing. Here is the card I made for my husband
Happy Anniversary! xx

Materials used:
Stamp sets: Hearts a Flutter and Hostess set: Sweetly Framed
Card stock: Brushed Silver and Naturals White
Ink: Versamark
Silver Embossing Powder
Framelits: Hearts a Flutter Dies
Buttons: Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons
Basic Pearls, Basic Rhinestones Jewel Accents
Whisper White 5/8" Organza Ribbon

Now I know this may not interest everyone, but it's been a busy week here on the Farm. It's that exciting time of the year when suddenly all seems well with the world and there is an excited noisy, dusty buzz in the air and everyone is happy and goes around saying how thankful they are. The Buzzards and Red Kites are hovering and swooping around the field too.
It's harvest time! and they are busy working in  the barley field outside the house today. I took a few photos from one of the bedroom windows and thought I'd share some here

I hope you weren't too bored with the Harvest Time photos, but I'll be back with some crafting photos another day. Until then...

Keep Crafting,
Ruth xx
