Don't know what happened there girls.....But I didn't post the Frankfurt Market thingy !!! Although I'm sure it's a wonderful place to go.....So sorry about that, must be a glitch in the machine.....or someone's HACKING....shame on you - I'm sure there's better things to hack than our little Blog !!!
Whilst I'm here, I may as well give you a few words - seeing as I don't get on here much.
At 45 I'm really feeling my age after doing two weekend shows on the trot. Alley Pally - Simply blinding - as always a fantastic show - I hope Polly and Jayne's feet have come back to their normal size and no longer resemble blown up Marigold Gloves !!! Artisan - I wouldn't call it blinding but it was lovely, we really had a giggle and I met some gorgeous peeps, including the most talented girlie by the name of LISA OLSON, she makes the most STUNNING felt bags - yes girlies I said FELT BAGS with gorgeous FELT FLOWERS. I do believe she takes orders AND she's LOVELY - here's her blog -
and the Craft Bug girls were great - but the funniest one there was one of the Glitter Girls (sorry didn't get here name) just had some great banter with her - she was hilarious !!!
We stayed in Warwick - what a beautiful place, had a miniature version of Maggie Thatcher as our landlady and had some great meals out - all in all a good weekend.
The Sugar and Spice stamps sold really well - Yay!!! Sorry still haven't got the new ones on the website - think I'm going to have to order more !!!. I've got to get me head down and design an all day card class - I know, I know I hear you!!! But before that takes place we've got the FREE MAKE AND TAKE on 31st October, don't forget to join us and have some fun!!! See you there.
Hope you're enjoying all the design ideas on the blog, I think you'll agree the girls are doing a GRAND job !!!
Take care

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
