Today saw us do something that we haven't done in a while..... Go out on bikes, no I'm not talking big honking 1250cc motor bikes I'm talking "bicycles" they took a bit of getting used to as there's no brakes on the handlebars, you just peddle backwards and that makes it brake !!! I know!!! I'm still finding it weird LOL. We cycled along the coast road and stopped off at a little pier, where people were fishing, probably getting their morning catch, I looked down and there was a rather large and gorgeous seal, just hanging around probably grabbing the catch before they did LOL !!! He was too quick for me to get my camera out ;)
Now a trip to the states isn't complete without a trip to Walmart, and Jane, if you're reading this I got your cherry lifesavers :) :) oh and while I was there a couple of packs of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups just happened to fall in my trolley, and it would have been so rude to take them out... right ??
We then went on and visited probably the most gorgeous scrapbook store I've ever seen. Small but stunning !!! And I just had to grab myself one of the Amy Tangerine journal books AND I'm definitely going to stock these, they're like a smaller funkier Smash book :)
We finished the evening off by having probably one of the best prime ribs EVER !!! Seriously, it was soooooo good.
While I'm away Nina has been sorting out a fab weekend at Sugar and Spice.... On the 3rd and 4th March we've got Amy Shaw coming to teach you card making, seriously, this is going to be a fun packed day full of techniques and goodies :) :) places are very limited so call the shop on 01268 530933, choose your day and book your place. You won't regret it. I promise !!!
Ooh yeah and while I'm here, don't forget it's the SUPER TABLE TOP SALE on Sunday 29th January, there's nothing over £6.00 some serious bargains to be had. Go treat yourself.
Where will our adventures take us next ???

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
