Well after an incredibly BUSY weekend I had a lovely RELAXING day with a very special friend.
We try to get together once a month and usually do the girly thing and go to Bluewater for the day and end up looking at tops that we realise are actually dresses, we then feel really old and depressed for the rest of the day, but, TODAY was different, TODAY we went to the cinema or (pictures) as I still call it.
We decided to still do the girly thing and watch the Chick Flick CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC, and in my opinion was absolutely's a little teaser for you if you haven't already seen it The dance scene is soooo FUNNY, I have read all the books, I love Sophie Kinsella, she's a brilliant writer, it is slightly different but excellent nonetheless. After we'd scoffed our M & M Peanuts, we still needed/wanted more food, so trotted off to Chicago's (not been there before) and had lunch, and very nice it was too.
So if you're at a loose end, grab a mate and go watch this movie.

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
