Monday, Monday

Well, my Monday has flown by in a flash. Karen and I have been unloading the van after the Stevenage show yesterday and I have to admit that it really isn't my favourite pastime...in fact, it's bloomin hard work!!! Anyways, it's done and whilst I was unpacking, I came across a few of the samples that I managed to keep. I do usually give away all the samples that I make when I'm demoing but as we have PaperArtsy's fabulous new Hot Picks in the shop I needed to try and keep a few. Oh, nearly forgot....they on line already too........are you impressed???? Just go to www.lbcrafts.com and they'll be the first thing you see when you click the Paperartsy button.

If you stopped by the stand at the show yesterday, thank you for coming, it was lovely to see you all.
Anyways, I just wanted to share these few samples with you. The backgrounds are Fresco Finish Paint stamped as a resist, then covered with the new colours of Distress Stains. All the focal images are stamped on Copper Art Metal from Ten Seconds  Studio and embossed with their tools.......enjoy.

My goodness, Linda -- no-one, but no-one, does it like you. Those tags are more than beautiful -- they have me drooling. Reckon you've used at least three of the six new sets on those beauties, and -- of course -- now I must have them all!!!! They have made me soooooo antsy to try my hand at them . . . . . and don't have the stamps . . . . yet!!!! You are really at the top of your form!

it was lovely to see you all too, and stand and watch all this loveliness being made - yesterday! Sorry your card got damaged, hope you've managed to repair it...
I am enjoying playing with my new stash, and can't wait for Ally Pally to get some more... good job there's 2 paydays before then! (well there'll be 2 if I do the payrun the day before the show...!!)

Absolutely fabulous samples Linda. I know I'll be doing an overseas order soon! Sometimes I wonder if it would be cheaper to just fly over for a visit and fill a few suitcases of PaperArtsy goodies!
