A Chatty Post


Good afternoon everyone, I am so late with today's post, but I have been trying to tidy up after my weekend away.  What a fantastic time we had at the Lili of the Valley Stand at Doncaster it was mega mega busy and on Saturday we sold out of lots of the new and old stamps, Bev, Marcea and I had to send Lisa and Laila home to pick up lots more stamps for Sunday, and again by the end of the show we had more empty boxes than full.

It was fabulous to see you all and thank you so much for your lovely comments, it is so nice to know that you love the stamps as much as we do, and once again it was so nice to put faces to names, a big thanks to Net who bought us a lovely box of yummy Cupcakes and also a fab punch each thanks hun XXXXX.

You may find that some of the  new stamps have also sold out on the website, Lisa and Laila order even more stamps than usual but the demand has been unprecedented, but don’t panic we hope to have them back in stock asap.

004 I coloured this image up at the show and he seemed to be very popular so i thought I would bring him home with me and make a card, I love this colour scheme of Aqua and Brown.  The image has been coloured with Copics

BG10, BG11, BG13, E70, E71, E40, E50, E53, & Face E21, E00, E000, E0000.

The paper is last years Silver Snow by Fancy pants designs, the snow flakes are from my stash, the sweet Cherry Blossom is from Wild Orchid Crafts, the sentiment if a Magnolia Stamp.

007 Here are a couple of photos taken of the Lili of the Valley Stand

002may I present to you Laila ,Barbie (opps sorry Marcea)  and Lisa, the girls changed the layout of the stand on Sunday, and it worked really well, looks good don’t you think.


Now there is a reason for me showing this picture, I have a little story to tell about why I look so tired!!!!!, I stayed Saturday night at a hotel in Doncaster had a fabulous evening with Sara and the Girls from Crafters Companion, when I got back to the bedroom I had my shower before bed and put my watch back on, I woke up with a start in the morning took a look at my watch and saw it was 9am, we were supposed to be leaving for the racecourse at 9.15, I rushed had a shower put on my slap then pulled the curtains to find it pitched black outside, NUMPTY that I am I had put on my watch upside down!!!!!!! and it was actually 3am.  Nothing for it but to go outside and have a ciggie, so now you know why I look as if I am falling asleep on my feet

Hugs to you all dear friends
