With a little help from my friends

Hello all, I couldn't resist making this card which was inspired from here. It was in aid of the recent move of my dearest friend Rhian. We had such a laugh helping her move, yes it was hard work but we were rewarded with drinks and dinner afterwards - I wish them all well in their swell new place.

I don't know about you but I am itching to place my Stampin' Up! order - I am so torn though as I still 'need' to get so many things from the current idea book & catalogue but also so excited for the things that will be in the new one, which is out on the 1st of October. I should be getting some demonstrator privilege sneak peaks soon and maybe ;D I will let you in on a few secrets - eeeeeee.

Have a great day & see you tomorrow xx

I'm just the same, still have a massive wish list for this catty, dread to think how much I'll "need" from the new one!!

Lovely card, the turquoise looks really fresh & bright against the green & the kraft.

Another great card Emma...I know what you mean about the new catalogue, can't wait to get a glimpse! I have a rather 'large' order hopefully on it's way to me, but I have saved some money for the new cattie !!
