Great Northern Papercrafts show, an apology and a little toot

Well, I think I am in shock!! Jill from The Hobby House has taken a stand at the Great Northern Papercrafts Show in Harrogate in less than two weeks time and I have been asked to demo for her. Oooh, I don't know whether to be excited or terrified or both. Sooo, I'll be taking my distress inks and H2O's and am going to play for two whole days!! I hope that those that are lucky enough to go will pop along and say hello - it will be wonderful to meet some of my blogging friends.

Which brings me to an apology - I am so sorry that I have not had much chance to visit your blogs, I am trying to get as many samples together as I can for Jill to display on her stand, plus I have all the gorgeous new Whiff of Joy stamps that I am having such fun stamping up and colouring - but I will try and visit you all this week and catch up with all your fab creations.

One top of all of this, I have made some cards for a feature in the latest Making Cards magazine that is out this week which is for The Hobby House, featuring Penny Black stamps. Guess who has been a busy girl lol. It's out this week and I can't wait to see it - I think I'll go and give myself another good pinch (I'll be black and blue at this rate).

I'll be back later with another Whiff of Joy sneak peek.

Thanks for looking,

  29. Wish I could go to the show, so many of these shows are too far north for me to go to. You could measure the distance in metres from my house to falling into the English Channel!!

    You are such a great ambassador for our addiction (sorry meant to say hobby)and I envy the fact that you are such an inspiration you are asked to demo and inspire others. Well done!!
