Just A Quickie!

As the title suggests, this is just a quick post to let you know that I see that it's time for the blog candy contest draw, however, all my followers info is in my office at work. Since I am still doing shows this week and driving back and forth to Peterborough, I won't be in the office until Thursday.  I didn't want anyone to think I had forgotten, but it will just be delayed a few days.  In the meantime, I thought that I would give you a final chance to improve the odds of winning.  If you leave me a comment after this post so that I know you have been by the blog, you will get an extra entry!
Just to answer a question left by follower Sue, several stores ordered the vintage ribbon from us at the trade show recently, but I think the closest to you is Loobicrafts in Leighton Buzzard.  I was really glad to see that it was a popular item and as they say, watch this space to see more of it!  Here is one of the cards that I did as a demo recently so I hope this will help you get by until I can do the candy draw on Thursday!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, it took me a while for the penny to drop and realise that you are the Sue from the TV!!! I love your demos and all your great ideas, my recorder is full of your shows. Love the cards you make and especially the demo using real flowers through a cuttlebug ( I think it was). Nice to see you back on our screens. ~ Debbie

I am just loving the vintage ribbon, Sue. It looks so pretty and I love that you can colour coordinate it perfectly. It's first on my wish list at the moment... Thanks for all the fab demos this week. I especially liked the demo with the Native American stamps. Thanks for the inspiration.

Wellington said...

I love these red/b/w colour schemes you've been using. Keep missing the POW shows :( Hope you're not too exhausted when the shows are finished. I'm another who checks your blog almost daily, but don't always leave comments - been following you for months. Keep up the good work & thank you for the inspiration - only the other day I checked your archive posts for ideas for the lattice embossing folder which I finally managed to get my hands on last month

Granny P said...

Have been recording all your demos for pick of the week. Always find something new and interesting. Can't keep up with everything but I like the variety of style and technique. Really impressed with how the masks can be used with the nesties.

Georgiegirl2012 said...

Hi, so you are one of the Wilson twins from C&C - I wasn't even looking for you, but having discovered it, it would have been rude not to follow you. Lovely card, and very impressed with the demos you are giving on the TV. Maybe I'll e-mail in again to tell you how fab you are xxx

Thank You Sue for taking the time out to answer my question, I will go visit the shop in the next week. Loved the show again yesterday, I have seen them all so now can't wait till Tue. Loved all the demo's and the samples they have shown. Tell them to do a Leonie and put them to the bottom so we can see new ones too. Take care.
