Well, I finally went back to work on Tuesday, although it has felt like I never even left, oh that's maybe because I didn't !!!!!
THANK YOU for all the lovely comments we've had these last couple of days, it's made all the HARD WORK worthwhile, and boy it was hard work!!!
I've been updating the website (adding more goodies), ordering in more goodies (don't tell Ricky, I promised "I wouldn't buy another thing") I do believe my fingers were crossed behind my back at the time! and DESIGNING a new cardmaking class, yes I've finally got my finger out, I was up at 5 this morning and sketched out some designs and so far so good, it's going to be all about CIRCLES.... hey Maggie if you're reading this I may even throw in a SQUARE RADIUS. LOL!!!
Nina's got some fantastic classes out, she's left me and Polly standing...... we'll have to hang our heads in shame.
I've now found my lead for the camera so I'll try and get some piccy's on here tomorrow.
For those of you that have taken part in the poll so far, THANK YOU. If there's other polls you'd be interested in taking part in let me know.

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
