First off, apologies if I'm boring you with all the blog posts...I'm on a bit of a roll at the mo and can't stop making, posting, making, posting !!!! I may as well make the most of it :)
This weekend saw us celebrate Ricky's uncle's 65th birthday, so off we trotted to Great Dunmow via Ford End, got to say if any of you live at Ford End...WOW what a beautiful village !!! to a gathering in the village hall all for the love of Derek, it was great seeing family again, but the funny thing was, there we were with our boys aged 22 and 19 and then there were all these little nippers whizzing around, there's a whole new generation come along. I managed to capture a couple (they were fast) I was trying out some KW photographic tips, but you know, they just wouldn't stay still !!

This little cutie is Jackson, when I asked if I could take his photo he just looked at me as said "NO" LOL!!

and this little one is Sophia...she's ALL lady...and I really want those flowers off her dress when she's done with it !!
It's lovely to celebrate and it made me think of one of the sentiments in one of my stamp sets "Find Joy Everyday" which then lead me to make a quick card this morning...and when I say quick, I mean quick, seriously this is one for the "Oh my gosh I forgot" Draw

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
