Penny Black Saturday - Spring, and a big thank you


I didn't manage to get a card made yesterday, I was so whacked when I got in I just cabbaged out and did nowt all evening. I've managed to get a card made tonight, I love working with Penny Blacks, you're always sure of a cute, quick and easy card. I’ve used these new Dovecraft papers that I picked up last week, how perfect for spring, which is the challenge at Penny Black Saturday
.penny-black-spring-challeng

Phew, what a fab but hectic weekend I had. I think I can safely say The Hobby House was a resounding success, Jill was anchored to the floor in front of the till for two days - poor soul didn't even get to the loo as the queue was never ending, thanks ladies for your patience in waiting in the long queues. The stash she took was delish! I was in Prima flowers paradise lol. She also had all the new Kaiserkraft papers in and the clear stamp sets - oooh! I didn't know which pack to stroke first lol. I'm biased I know but I think our stall was THE best at the show, the stash on offer was so different to what everyone else was offering and it was a delight to see new and fresh things for a change.

Thanks to all the lovely ladies that took the time to stop by and say hello, I wish I had more time to chat with you all. I really appreciated your support xxxx

Jill, this might have been your first show hun, but you ROCKED!! Loved it and can’t wait for the next one.

The only disappointment to the weekend was the Copics workshop - umm what workshop? I left there after a hour feeling sorely aggrieved as I was none the wiser and £10 lighter! I was so disappointed but pleased in a way as I saved myself an awful lot of money - that workshop put me off Copics sadly. Although a little angel - Maddi - flew in to my rescue and is going to show Marcea, Linda and I what a real workshop is lol. Looking forward to that honey


Recipe
Stamps: Penny Black Bunny Bath and Fiskars Clear Stamps Cameo Ovations (also from The Hobby House but not yet on the web)
Papers: Dovecraft Wild Blossom (love these)
Embellishments: Delish new spacers and dragonfly charm from The Hobby House - wait till you see what Jill has to go on the web, drool worthy lol)

Thanks for looking,

  9. Hi Bev, I was sooo desperate to go to the show and see you do some work that I took a 2 hours and 15 min drive on ma first unsupervised motorway journey lol and i have to say it was soooo worth it!! I really enjoyed watching you do your demonstrations and ended up spending alot of money on the stall. I was great the way the stall was set up to basically show everything you use but i have to say it was manic lol anyways big thanks for your inspiration!!!! love rach xxx

  63. Hi Bev, sounds like an exciting day, with the exception of the copic workshop. I wish they had things like that around this area, but so far have not found anyplace. I guess that's what I get for living in Upstate NY. Fabulous Card, and you are right, those images are always just adorable. But you always put that extra flair and make it perfect.
