The winner, and a trip to the NEC

Firstly, apologies for the delay in posting the winner of the Polkadoodles CD, who is


Congrats, email me with your name and address and I will get your prize in the post

The kitchen and other stuff really have kept me so hectically busy this past week, but I was thrilled to get my latest parcel of design team stuff from Craftwork Cards, gorgeous papers and this trio of little ladies that I coloured to take with me to the craft show at the NEC. They come printed on postcard sized cards, so no messing about with stamping and you have plenty of space to cut around them with label shapes if that suits your design 

Here is the Craftwork Cards booth at the show - you can see Julie answering questions from the crowd.....

and some of the lovely samples, Craftwork Cards stands always look so pretty at the shows...... 

I love these little scottie dog die cuts, I can't wait to do something with them...

then it was time for a coffee and gossip with Nikky Hall and Kath Stewart, boy did we put the world to rights.....

I have lots more photos of samples to show you in the next couple of days.

Now we really don't expect this at the end of March..........

The other 'incident' that set me back a bit last week was a visit to the cinema with my girlfriends. A visit to the loo before the film (why is it always women who do that? Do men have cast iron bladders I wonder?), and my iPhone which was in the back pocket of my jeans fell out - right into the loo. Dead, kaput, nothing on the screen, not even a flicker. So I googled, and the advice was to put it in a bag of rice on a radiator and let it dry out. Much anxious peering into rice bag......still dead. I took it out of the rice after a couple of days (I was a bit obsessed with throwing the rice away, considering where the phone had been) So off I went to get a new phone, luckily my contract was due for renewal anyway. Problem solved. Then Mike helpfully put my phone on to charge - only he charged the old one by mistake.
Yes, you guessed the punch line.....
Old phone is now in perfect working order
