2 WEEKS......

Oh my goodness, I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since my last blog post #hangsheadinshame !!!
But I have had a bit of an excuse... I've been away working for WOW Embossing Powders at the NEC in Birmingham these last 5 days, now I'm not going to say it wasn't hard work, BUT...we do have so much fun and this time I got to meet so many of the WOW Design Team, they've seriously done some stunning projects !!
It was 4 days of full on classes, with lots of help from Neil, Rachel, Nicki and Tania... thanks guys :) :) :)
One of the classes we had some deaf ladies, who were such a delight, whilst we were teaching them the skills of embossing they were teaching us sign's Mary and her friend showing off the wonderful card they made

 If any of you who took the classes are reading this...THANK YOU.....You were all amazing !!!
Now let me introduce you to the gorgeous and seriously talented Rachel, what this girl can't do with Ultra High is nobody's business !!
 If you live in the Birmingham area, tell your local craft store they NEED her to come and demo WOW Powders - She's FAB !!!
And this is Sue, well Sue's hand actually, she's very shy LOL !! She introduced me to her "Life Stones", she is soooooo talented, they both put me to shame really !! So seeing as I hadn't had enough of embossing powders I decided to try my first "Life Stone" ... now it's nowhere nearly as good as Sue's and those of you that know me, know I'm more about the clean lines and not grunge so I tried to make a pretty one....
I'm actually quite pleased with it, but I'll let Sue be the judge of that !!!
Anyhoo's tomorrow is back to my "real" job, and it's really exciting as I've just been informed all my stash from CHA is landing at Heathrow tonight.... just in time for Ally Pally TOOT TOOT !!!!
PLUS...I've another lot of super duper Mashed Potatoes about to drop through the door .... WINK WINK ;) ;)
Managed to steal a couple of mins in the garden today..... absolutely gorgeous..lets hope it lasts

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
