It's funny how you go through life thinking you have found your true friends, only to find out that there are a lot of shallow people out there who want to be your friend because it suits them and that they are not really your friend at all, it's funny how they always play the victim. But a TRUE friend treats you with respect and is there for you......So today I grasped one of my TRUE friends with both hands and what do FRIENDS do BEST......SHOPPING, of course.

We hit Lakeside like a couple of whirling dervishes, two women on a mission, Jasper Conran was our first stop and I got a lovely top, full of flowers, bling and a snippet here and there of organza. Next stop Monsoon, here, I fell in love with a top, one size was too small, it made my boobies look like a couple of helium filled ballons and the other size was too big, but I just had to have it, so did i decide on the smaller one and promise to go on a diet??? Did I heck, I went for the bigger one and will adjust it !!
We were getting quite hungry so off we toddled to Cafe Rouge (love that place, well the garlic bread sticks mainly) and stuffed our faces, literally.
With belly's full and stinking of GARLIC we moved on to Per Una, bargains of the day were found here, I got two pairs of trousers (linen) three pair of knickers (lacey) and three vest tops (cotton) all for under £35.00. WOW !!
All in all had a brilliant day with a great friend, got some lovely new togs and ate some rather garlicy food.
Now I wait patiently for an e mail to say our NEW STASH is on it's way, I'll keep you in suspense a little longer, but suffice it to say you're gonna LOVE IT.
I love this.....The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart. ~Elisabeth Foley

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
