.....only tears.....BOO HOO, we're coming home, BUT the GOOD NEWS is our flight is delayed 3 hours so we've got 3 more hours of sunshine to soak up before we get back to wet and dreary ENGLAND. THANKS SOOOOO MUCH AMANDA, the fact that our flight is delayed and we haven't had to vacate (oh that sounds so American) the house at 11 am has been a god send.
We've had THE MOST FUN and some fantastic FOOD and some rather nice CHEESECAKES as well.
Jamie and Nicky left a day before us and I can only assume that they are home safe and sound as, I suppose, with most 18 year olds they forget to let you know!!! Don't worry Jay I'm only your mother!!!!
We managed to pack in the parks all last week, good really as the schools were off this week and they became really busy, got quite a bit of shopping done and have relaxed for the last few days, so now I feel really chilled out.
See you all soon in CHILLY ENGLAND. Love to all xx

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
