A quick post with exciting news!!!!

Well it's turned out to be a very busy couple of days!!

I received a last minute request to step in and demonstrate for Stampendous at the NEC Trade Craft show this weekend, so I've been busy getting packed and have set up my demo area ready for the start of the show tomorrow for demos and make and takes and will be here at the show until Tuesday.  

Then, also even more last minute, I've been asked to appear on 3 shows on Create and Craft for Stampendous on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.  I don't know the times yet or exactly what I will be doing but it will be with stamps and accessories from their new catalogue.  I'll be setting off straight from the NEC show to Peterborough so quite a week ahead!!

The new designs from Stampendous are wonderful and there are new additions to the range of embossing enamels, fragments, glass glitters etc.

I will be travelling on the next part of my adventure to Create and Craft with Linelle from Dreamweaver stencils who will be appearing in her first shows on Create and Craft.  Be sure to watch her too as she is the owner of the company and has travelled over from America to share her amazing talent with her Dreamweaver stencils, pastes and other products.

I'm sure Ian will appreciate a quiet week alone at home now after the manic shopping and packing over the last couple of days!!!

As it has been snowing here for most of the day so far I thought it would be nice to feature something floral and colourful.

As well as the beautiful poppy head, the set includes a very useful and elegant border swirl stamp.

Plant some seeds with Stampendous!

Despite the cold, wet and dismal weather recently it'll soon be time to work in our gardens and it was lovely to see some sunshine here on Friday when I noticed that the trees and shrubs are starting to show their buds.

Spring is on it's way... Yippee!!!!

So today I thought I'd share these wonderful and colourful plant pots made by the Stampendous design team.  While we are still stuck inside they would be a great project to complete until the better weather arrives.  They would make great Spring or Easter gifts, perhaps add some seed packets for the recipient ready for them to plant.

Placing them in a covered and lined stamped box with tissue paper really shows them off and I'm sure will make a treasured treat.

The new catalogue features lots of other lovely floral designs but today I am focusing on the 

It works so well with all the Frantage embellishments too

Such a pretty stamp to use as a matching gift card for your box of pots!

Have a great Sunday!!

I'll be back with more tomorrow
