ANOTHER MONDAY SHOP FEST.....

Yes it's that time of the month that I get together with my friend and shopping confidant Lyn. This time we hit Bluewater and what a lovely day we had, obviously it included purchasing pretty things and eating tasty things.
As usual the tasty things included GARLIC BREAD and the pretty things included SHOES..and with a HEEL....ooh get me! After treking around for 6 hours and picking out bits and pieces our last stop was M & S....
In my search for a particular item of clothing I went upto a lady and asked her if this was the only floor that womenswear was on, she looked at me quizically and said "Uh" I repeated the question and she replied "toilets ? over there" So I asked the question one more time, saying it very slowly, and this time she understood me and replied "Yes, only this floor", "Thank -you" I replied, to which she replied "I don't work here, but your welcome". After being mortified, we couldn't stop laughing to the extent that we were getting some really funny looks. Hey Ho, that sort of sums up our days out.
This weeks going to be a busy one, getting things sorted for the BANANA FROG DAY. We've also decided to do a FREE MAKE AND TAKE DAY on SATURDAY 27th JUNE, I'll be sending a newsletter out about it so if your registered check your inbox.

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
