Firstly, I'd like to thank and welcome my new followers/blog buddies and thank my 'old' ones for staying with me! This blog has been up for only 5 months during which I have had a great fun creating and sharing my crafty creations with you all and hope that more people join soon so we can all have fun together!
To make it more interesting for you I am bringing you an exclusive news and exclusive photos released by Maserati!!! Must read on...!
"On Sunday 15 June, the British round of Maserati’s Centennial Polo Tour was held at Cirencester Park Polo Club. The Jerudong Park Polo Trophy is the third event in the Italian brand’s celebratory tour which has already seen thrilling action on the field in Palm Beach in the USA and in Tianjin in China.
Playing in the UK match on the iconic Ivy Lodge ground were two very special guests; HRH The Duke of Cambridge played on the Maserati team whilst his brother HRH Prince Henry of Wales played on the opposing BMG team. Both took part in the game in aid of their chosen charities Centrepoint, Child Bereavement and Well Child. The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George were also in attendance at Cirencester Park yesterday to cheer on HRH The Duke of Cambridge on Father’s Day.
In the end, it was the Maserati Team that secured a well-contested victory, with a final score of 8-7.5. The ‘Best Playing Pony’ accolade was awarded to New Zealand’s highest ranking polo player, John Paul Clarkin’s, chestnut pony who is coincidentally and very aptly named ‘Maserati’.
HRH The Duke of Cambridge was named ‘Most Valuable Player of the Match’ and was presented with a La Martina Pro Evolution Helmet by the polo brand’s co-founder, Gachi Ferrari.
Maserati together with its global brand partner, La Martina, showcased a bespoke one-off polo saddle which the two companies created in partnership to celebrate the centennial tour. The stylish saddle was on show alongside the newest model in Maserati’s line-up; the Ghibli executive saloon. Also on display was Maserati’s flagship model; the luxury four door Quattroporte.''
Here are a few photos from the special day my partner Greg helped to organise and attended on Sunday:
Secondly, I'd like to show you a CAS card that I have made following a sketch at Make The Day Special Stamp Store, challenge #3. I know that this hardly can top the photos above, but this is a craft blog and what kind of crafter would I be if I didn't show you any of my jewels! :)
I used the Avery Elle Petals & Stems stamp set, Versamark & my white WOW! embossing powder on a thick piece of vellum and adhered it to my turquoise card base. I also made a banner for my sentiment and embellished the card with white flat back pearls. I believe that this is a simple yet very effective card. It shows another way of using the beautiful stamp set that I happened to purchase at the Make The Day Special Stamp Store.
I'd like to take this opportunity and enter this card into another couple of lovely challenges and they are as follows:
Simon Says Stamp Monday Blog - Anything Goes
Time Out - summer with a twist of flowers (my favourite colour for summer is turquoise so I used it for this card and of course used the gorgeous petals & stems! I hope this counts..)
I hope you enjoyed my special blog post today and like my card! Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below.
Have an amazing day! Thank you for stopping by,
