What a gorgeous day it was today. My lovely mum gave me the day off today and as Ricky was off as well, we decided to take Tyson (our chocolate labrador) to Thorndon Country Park, and lovely it was too, that was until Ty decided to get in the water with the ducks, not realising there was quite a steep ledge and he couldn't get out...

I must be wicked as I asked Rick to wait on his rescue until I'd taken a shot ...A true scrapper I'd say!!!

....And rescue him he did, at which point he called to me to get out of the way, as what do dogs do on exit from water....that's right ...SHAKE !!! and boy did he SHAKE, we were covered in dirty muddy water!! He soon got over his little trauma and was off running around like a looney...

Does this take you back to your childhood...days of just playing in the fields for hours, while mum was cooking the dinner, and there we were checking if we liked butter or not....BUTTERCUPS...don't you just love them !!

Today was also the end of an was the day that my "baby" left school, for those of you that don't know Luke his 16 and 5ft 10, but he's still my baby, needless to say he was rather happy about it.
And lastly, before you fall asleep, a couple of the NEW CLEAR STAMP DESIGNS from SUGAR AND SPICE have been delivered and I had a quick and I mean really quick play yesterday, here's a little taster of what you can do using the "Happy Birthday With a Cherry On Top" Set, if you're LUCKY/TALENTED enough to get on our Design Team, you may even get this set sent to you to play with.

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
