HOW JEALOUS ARE WE!!!! Thought I'd share some photos that were taken at the NEC Stitches Trade Show last weekend.  Réne, Di and John went to Birmingham to source out some new goodies for us all (keep checking the shop they are all due in very, very soon!!).  Réne and Di were lucky enough to do a 3hour workshop with the one and only TIM HOLTZ!! They had a great time stamping, distressing, using gesso and all sorts of different techniques and both brought home two lovely projects they did. (They are in the shop if you want to have a look).  They learnt all sorts of things and hopefully will be incorporating some of them in the new workshop list which is due out in the next few weeks. 
So look below and drool!!!! :)

Just wanted to say sorry to Sharon for forgetting her birthday last week (especially as its the same day as mine!!!) - obviously old age is affecting me!! Anyway I made her a "sorry I forgot" card and I thought I'd share it with you.

Hope you had a good birthday :)

Just thought I'd say thank you to all my crafting friends who sent me a handmade card for my birthday last week.  I had some beautiful ones - you can see them below.  I think everyone knows me very well - they were either "Magnolia", Cuttlebug, ladybugs or tulips - all of my favourite things - so thank you again very much. 
On a different note - as we speak we are all doing our cards for the February sketch challenge - so check back around the weekend and the new sketch will be posted.
