topsy turvey

Hi all you lovely crafters out there.
are you preparing for a great weekend, I do hope so.
I am very excited as I am doing a demo on Bank Holiday Monday at Sir Stampalot, a bit sad in one way though as I am doing it on my own now as the lovely Brenda from Floral fantasies is poorly, get well soon Brenda.
so if you are at a loose end on Bank Holiday Monday, come and see me.
Its the Christmas launch, there's lost of exciting things that are NEW, in the shop.
this car is made using woodware Tipsy tree
the papers are October afternoon again, sorry but I love them.
also I have a friend Mandy who has just started a new blog
she is on the design team for Sir Stampalot check her out here
her work is amazing.
I thought I would enter this into a couple of challenges

Hi Chris, Lou told me all about the demo...Just wish I was a little closer, as hubby works in Swindon, the last thing on his mind is driving on a day off...If he had had the week off I would have been able to twist his arm...we have our way's don't we...hehe
I am determined to visit you lovely lady's soon though...so you don't get away that easy...lol

Blimey Chris, I didn't think you could top some of your recent stuff, but this is awesome, amazing, fabulous and plain downright gorgeous! I absolutely love it! I'd never have thought of using these papers on a Chrimbo card - but they work so well.

I wish I lived nearer as I'd definately come see you, but sadly I'm stuck right down on the coast in the SE.

Have a fab holiday weekend.

Hugs Claire x
