May Release Delay

I have decided to delay the May Release by a few days, April has been a particularly hectic month because the children were on Easter break for almost 4 weeks (!!) so I'm playing catch up on pretty much everything!!  Also, Her Majesty The Queen (I know - HUGE name drop right? haha! ) is visiting the children's school to commemorate it's 450th year on the 6th and I really want to be there for that - so selfish of me right? ;)   Coincidentally, the obstetrician who delivered our future King George is an alumni of the school....okay I'm done with the name dropping now I promise lol

Teaser Time will now kick off on Tuesday 6th May and the new stamps and dies will be made available on Saturday the 10th, I hope this is okay :)

Here are a couple of cards I made many months ago....

Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Say It Is Style' & 'Butterfly Wishes Additions' / Tools - Clearly Besotted Dies 'Geometric Rose Large', 'Butterfly Wishes Die Collection' & 'Tag Along Die Collection'

Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Basic Stripes', 'Call Me' & 'My Cup of Tea' / Tools - Clearly Besotted Dies 'Call Me' & 'Tag Along Die Collection'; Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Standard Circles'

Thank you so much to everyone who entered our Spring Themed Challenge, the randomly drawn winner is Gemma of Gem's Little Creations (entry number 1!!).

Right, I must clean the kitchen now, before the health authorities come in and shut it down lol  Have a fantastic week :) xxx

Can't wait to see the release next week, I'm sure it will be super fab as always. Bad timing for me though. I'm hitting 'uh-oh 40' mid week and got my main night of celebrations on the 10th so no doubt I'll be a tiny bit drunk by 10pm (hopefully!) :) I'll have to order what's left the next morning during my whopping hangover! Lol xxx

Hi, your cards are wonderful. And I completely can understand about the delay! Hope you and your family will have a great time at the school of your children, while your queen is visiting! I saw our queen (Beatrix) a couple of times, wich was always quite hectic but fun! I am curious to the new stamps.

Best of luck seeing the Queen :o)
I know exactly how you feel. I have been so fortunate to be invited to an occasion where Her Majesty Queen of Denmark attended. We had a clear view to her seat, but only the hubby's scholarship winning apprentice got to shake her hand. It was a really big deal - for me at least :o)

The Queen visiting your children's school? AWESOME! Of course you need to be there! I remember the excitement when Will and Kate came 'near' to our town (they were at Lake Louise, camping), as part of their honeymoon. The air itself was alive with excitement. I can only imagine what 'real presence' of royalty must be like. WOW! Waiting for the release: we'll all be fine - just amps up my anticipation of what I know will be more dazzling delights. Your cards: stunning!! Hugs~c

Hi Stephanie

Your cards are very beautiful, as usual. I just love your style.

And I'm sure your kids and your whole family are thrilled about the forthcoming visit of Her Majesty the Queen at your children's school, that's really a big event which cannot be missed. Don't worry about delaying the release, I look forward to it, no matter when it comes.

By the way: after telling my son that your kids had an Easter break of almost 4 weeks he told me he wants to move to England *lol*.
