Hi Everyone,
Hope you all had a lovely Mother's day. Unfortunately the weather has not been to good and snow has been forecast for Monday/Tuesday.  I do hope not as I hate the cold it plays havoc with my bones!!

As promised here are the card samples I made at Malvern Craft Show, followed by the Saturday workshop cards, a beautiful card and book mark sent to me by Michele Pratten, and a rather pretty  bookmark made for me for by Paula.  How lucky am I ! There is also a sample card using a Sizzix new die set made by Sue who works in the store.  You can see she has used Mulberry paper to create the butterfly.  We all have some of this lovely paper in our craft stash so why not get it out and have a go.  It does show the butterfly off very well.

Our workshops are nearly all full so we have included another Saturday within the schedules.  Call the store if you want to book as I am really sorry some of you have been disappointed of late.

The Imagination stamps have proved really popular so will be ordering more shortly.  The rather lovely Poppy one will be used in a workshop next month along with gilding flakes.
Speak to you soon.

Happy Crafting
 Una x

Hi everyone, gosh it has been a busy week.  The show is going well with only one day to go.  It has been great meeting up with our customers in and around Malvern.  Thank you to all the new customers as well for supporting us.  We hope to see you in the store sometime soon.  Here is a photo of the stand all set up and ready to go.  Howard has been brilliant at demoing  the BigShot and some of the border punches.  We had a lovely lady from Ireland just before closing today who was fascinated with stamping and punching the borders.  I told her if she started she would have to be prepared to be "hooked" on crafting and want everything she sees.  She does Woodturning which is quite an art and of course because this is a hobby of Howard's they had loads to talk about.  Anyway she went away happy with a border punch, glue and card.  Somehow I think she may be back tomorrow!!
