Craft World Open Day

We had a great day yesterday at the Craft World open day. There was Becky from Do Crafts and myself demonstrating our products. We had a steady stream of lovely ladies and Andy visiting our tables to see what was what. I recognized quite a few faces from the last time I demonstrated there last year and it was really nice to see them again and meet new ones. I got a nice surprise when some of the ladies said they followed my blog :-D Hello to Roni, Rita and Elspeth!

I took along some samples of the June release as well as a few new designs to be released next month which went down well. I'll start posting them over the coming weeks but in the meantime here's another I never got posted last week.

I used my Promarkers to colour in Gossip Nikki. I'm relatively happy with it but if you look closely at Nikki's friends hair on the left, the ink bled past the line even though I tried to stay clear of it. I used the blender pen to remove as much of it as I could. The table colour is a bit strong so will try different colours next time. I didn't get many sentiments on the cards but I will get to that later :-D The stitching is a bit dodgy on the corners...not sure what happened there. Also, I must not have had my glasses on as the lines aren't exactly straight!

Do you like the button? I hadn't used my i-top in ages so dragged it out and made one using the reverse of the harlequin paper from MME. I love this surprise there lol.
Hope your Sunday isn't as soggy as mine.
Catch ya later x

Hello! Love yesterday's and today's card, it's so annoying when the stitching doesn't work out, I get so mad and it's probably me not the machine lol!!!
I got your email, off to get ready for a big family bbq this afternoon so will reply later.
Got masses of new stock still to add but managed to get the Robyn ones on yesterday :D

Hi Kerry. Was lovely to meet you yesterday at Craft World. Waiting patiently for Jack to be released so I can make some nice cards for my boys!
Will probably see you again at Craft World sometime. Thanks for showing how easy it is to use the Prisma pencils.

Another beautiful card Kerry. Patiently waiting for my blenders etc coming in the post. Pity Craft World ran out. Enjoy your Sunday. Hugs Rita xx

Lovely card Kerry, sorry you had a soggy Sunday, been gorgeous here! Lovely card, love that ribbon... although really want to ask - what do you prefer Promarkers or Copics?

Hi Kerry! It was so lovely to meet you in person on Saturday, I felt all star struck, lol! After following your blog for a while now I feel as though I already know you, which is weird? I've done what you said and added myself as a follower instead of a subscriber. I just wanted to say that even though I'm not much of a cat lover, I just love your Magnum stamps and wished I could've spent more time with you at your table but hubby was on the clock! I checked out your holiday snaps, loved them, especially wee Sadie next to the big ship! Takes me back to my honeymoon cruise! Sigh!
Roni :O) xoxo
