Canoes and Cardwell

Do you know since we moved back to Scotland it seems as though our lives have been taken over by busy bees I am truly blessed that we have so much to smile about.
This weekend has been no different even though the body was calling me to just have 5 more minutes to relax on Saturday morning. DH was working over the weekend with a come and try day at the centre so we book out a Canadian canoe and took to the water. It was so windy that we ended up in the reeds which was funny and there was me thinking that if only I could squeeze back into the wetsuit I could rig a sail and set out on the windsurf board! The girls loved it even after all the wibbling and wobbling (and I am talking about the water!) Shock Horror I did not have my camera with me so don't have any pics to share.

Product: Papermania Henbury Lane A5 Paper Pack, Papermania Bluetit wooden stamp,
Papermania silver gems, Papermania Water colour pencils.

On Sunday I headed across the other side of Scotland to demo at Cardwell Nursery, again I was gobsmacked at seeing another wonderfully filled craft store and still asking the question .... WHY, is there nothing over this side!!

Product: Card Made from Do Crafts Goody Bag, papers are Henbury Lane

It was good to meet some more crafters and show them all the new product that has been launched this month with Do Crafts. Henbury Lane is proving to be a favourite as is the A4 decoupage kit with Bramble and Hawthorn.

Product: Daisy and Dandelion A4 decoupage pack with Bramble and Hawthorn.

And whilst on cards here is one that I made with a selection of the My Little Shoe box papers. I'm loving easel cards and the way you can really make your designs pop! I couldn't resist putting the wee butterflies onto wire so they really looked like they were fluttering!

Product: My little shoe box Imaginery friends : Knock Knock, All a Flutter : Wings and Things, Flutterby, Social Butterfly, MLS Mini Alphabet Stickers, Anitas pink spotty ribbon, Papermania red hot buttons, Papermania card springs.

Well I seriously need some shut eye, thanks for popping by
