FUN, FUN, FUN ......

Last week I felt very privileged to be asked to hold a craft masterclass with a couple of competition winners at QVC. So I got my finger out and designed 5 cards, made up their kits and drove up very early Tuesday Morning, to meet the ladies. Olivia came ALL the way from Northern Ireland and Angela, came all the way from Yorkshire, originally from New Jersey

We had the loveliest of mornings, probably chatted far too much, but then hey ho, why not !!! Got treated to a lovely lunch and then had a studio tour, then the lucky ladies got treated to a yummy goodie bag !! Thanks girls you really were good fun. Xx
As I was on air the next day I stayed up there and spent a night in the Pestana hotel, courtesy of QVC, thanks guys. It states it's in the top 100 hotels in the world !! And very nice it was too.
Wednesday saw me and Wendie Rhodes together again, I was only on for two hours Wendie, bless her, was on for the TSV, and that's, well, loads of hours !!! She done marvellous, as usual. I've never met such a sweet, charming, supportive lady. You know those genuinely nice people out there, that pop into our lives ? Well, she's that person !!
I've just been given the dates of my next shows (over on the right) Amy and Wendie are going to be on loads in between with some super duper shows. So don't miss them, I've got to say QVC have got some fabby product coming on, rather strokable, if I say so myself.
It's good to be back in the shop again, I'm trying to sort out a card making class before my next QVC date, so keep an eye out for the newsletter.
Barb's more on the ball than I am :) and she's listened to you asking for a wedding card class, and she's gone and done a class for you, incorporating Nestibilities, details are on the website, she's holding it on Sunday 19th June at 10 am. You can call the shop to book.
Here's a sneak peek....

Well better go make a list, that never seems to go down, but the thoughts there !!
Enjoy the sunshine everyone

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
