So, after the most sumptuous meal on the Saturday evening....Mmmm I can still taste it, Sunday dawned.
After a rather tasty and filling breakfast (it was all about the food of course) we got cracking on our third project.

This was All About embossing techniques...such fun !!!!
Here's our little Dawny showing off the ring she made....

Now, we know our customers very well, mainly because they've stayed loyal to us for so many years...we are blessed !!!
So....hands up who're received the "most improved embosser" reward.....

Yep it's our lovely Vanessa, what this girl doesn't know about embossing now is no ones business :) :)
Here's our lovely Lisa showing off her wonderful only took her a weekend to grow !!!

Here's some of the girls collecting their prizes.....lucky ladies :) :)

Big thanks to our lovely friends at Premium Art Brands, Imagination Crafts, QVC and Artemio for donating some FAB prizes.

We asked everyone to make a name badge and throughout the weekend they were judged by each other. We had a prize for the best one.....but, seeing as how amazing everyone's were, there was a tie break... So Alison and Claire got a prize each :) :)

So after a rather yummy Sunday roast, we continued the afternoon with Cardmaking, they made 4 fabulous cards designed by our lovely Nina.
AND was home time ....ohhhh the tears !!!!
We had THE MOST AMAZING weekend and we know our girls did also. Thank you ladies you made it so special. We love you :) :)
But, you know I couldn't have done it without the help from Nina and Paula, so to thank them for all their hard work I took them to Henlow Grange for a day of pampering. We all so deserved it :) another two amazing people to thank are Ricky and Skip for all their help. But they went to work the next day :)

But, it doesn't end when we got into work on Tuesday we were greeted with three beautiful boxes of chocolates and flowers, all from our lovely retreatees. THANK YOU

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
