Star Framelits card and #christhecatalogue



Am having an exhausting evening as Mr Winky has had some dental work done today and, because of the anaesthetic, he’s not allowed outside… supposedly for 2-3 days. I vetoed that immediately as I know what he’s like but the vet did say he couldn’t go out until tomorrow at least. 

So this evening is an Ayckbourn-style farce of closing doors and running around to prevent him from escaping. “He may be a little drowsy”… I think not - he’s never been so lively! Mainly because he really needs a wee and won’t use the litter tray provided.

...

Anyway… after a short break to disinfect and mop the floor,  I’m back with a card from my now not-so-recent Awkward Cards Workshop. This was one of the cards we made for teenagers, using the Stars Framelits which, trust me, are not just for Christmas. 

In other news, I spent Saturday in the company of 350 other demonstrators at the UK Regional training event in Telford. This was a great opportunity to see some of the products from the upcoming catalogue. There were some fabulous demonstration, lots of swapping (sadly, I didn’t have time to make any swaps, but that never seems to stop me coming home with some!) and I even won a Prize Patrol, which is virtually unheard of!



The catalogue itself was launched in spectacular style by our very own Chris from Demonstrator Support. Chris has been with SU ever since they launched in Europe in November 2007 and is the one we all turn to when we need help. So it’s no wonder he gets the biggest cheer of all when he turns up on the SU stage… and dressing him as a catalogue only served to make the cheers even louder.  

He did, however confess that it was quite heavy, so I asked him to pose looking miserable and he said: “I’ll pretend that you’ve phoned me three times in a day with different problems.” Rude.
