Lovely Day on Sunday!























I just wanted to say what a lovely day I had on Sunday with the great group at Berkley Garden Centre.  I had a crowd there as soon as the doors opens all the way until we ended at 3pm.  I really want to thank them all for coming out and spending time with me.  I don't demo very often, maybe a few times a year at most, but they made me feel right at home like we were all crafting together!  It was really nice to meet some of the people that have been following my blog and leaving such amazing comments for me too.  I really enjoyed that!
  I also forgot in my rush to put up a quick post last time to say a big thank you to Karen ( aka furry monkey) for the wonderful best friend blogger award she left for me on her blog.  It now holds a place of honour on my sidebar with the few others that I have received lately.  I can't tell you what that means to me to be acknowledged  by your crafting friends.  Thank you again.
This is another quick post with one of the samples from last weekends show that didn't see much time.  It is a bit dark, but I really like it.  It may ssem familiar as it is a layout that I really like and have made this card using other papers and stamps from time to time.  It is always one that I am happy with when I finish it so why not keep doing it, right?  It does kind of look like I am hooked on black flowers lately though, doesn't it?  They have stickles on them in real life which looks really nice. The picture doesn't do it justice.  I am getting ready for a couple of shows on Friday the 1st (9am and 1pm) so hopefully I will have a couple of sneak peeks for you soon too.  All for now, Sue x
