Hello - Long Time no See

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends - long time no see!!!!
I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted on my blog - but sooooooo much has happened in that time!!!!

Before I go into detail with that I would just like to share the very CAS design card I made for


using a couple of MFT dies and some gorgeous Doodle Bug Design Paper - love this fresh colour combo!

Here are the links to the items used:
Die-Namics Transform-ables 'Say Hello'
MFT Blueprints 3 (Scallop Border)
Doodle Bug Designs 'Sugar Shoppe'

So since I last posted - Jack has had his amazing trip to Las Vegas and enjoyed every minute of it - Jamie and Aaron have celebrated their birthdays and enjoyed that too. I had a fabulous long weekend in Amsterdam with my DH - what a stunning hotel we stayed in - brilliant service and A-MAZ-ING food.

I have done 2 more Create and Craft shows for The Hobby House - that takes a lot of preparation - which is one of the key reasons I haven't been around much - but I am really enjoying the experience - I have another show booked for this Sunday 10 July live from Summer Crafting at Doncaster at 9:00am - would love to hear if you are going along to Doncaster on Sunday :o)
Then I have another 2 shows on Create and Craft USA at the end of this month - 22 July.

I did a Craft Fayre at Dumbleton on Saturday - it was very quiet but I still managed to sell quite a few things which gives me some pocket money for Doncaster lol!!!

And my latest news is I have just been appointed as a docrafts Craft Expert and will be doing my first demo day in The Range at Gloucester on Saturday 16 July and an other on Saturday 30 July at The Range in Cheltenham.

Hopefully I will get the chance to pop round your blogs a later this evening - whilst relaxing in front of the telly :o)

Thanks for popping by.
It's always good to see you.

Have a wonderful afternoon.
