Sunday Musings

What a lovely day! beautiful sunny day, not a cloud in the sky, love it.
Had to get up this morning to take some painkillers and go back to bed until they kicked in, was so sore. 
Anyway, had a fantastic afternoon teaching some incredibly funny ladies at The Papeterie yesterday - they are definitely the rowdiest bunch so far.... but they were "amazing" lol I was explaining some other uses for promarkers to them yesterday and I don't think they believed me, so I said I would dig out this card to show them... on it I used white or light coloured ribbons and trims and coloured them with promarkers then basket wove them to make my background...

and here's some pics of my very studious students...

And I was really nervous about finally meeting Erika who was there doing an instore demo all day - and I had no reason to be nervous at all, I think we hit it off straight away, she's a lovely girl and we yapped away like we'd known each other for ages. She is however a terrible influence and she made me spend loads of money lol.

Now, how many of you bought card from The Papeterie stand at the SECC last month? How many of you live in the NE of Scotland and have been to The Papeterie
And how many of you would like to win £100 of crafting goodness?
it's sooooooooooooooo easy, all you have to do is make a card with products which are currently sold at The Papeterie and you'll be entered into their Spring into Summer Card Designer Challenge.
The challenge will run until the 30th April(noon) with winners being announced at 4pm.
1st Prize: £100 of crafty goodies
2nd Prize: £30 of crafty goodies
3rd Prize: £10 of crafty goodies
All you need to do is design a card made with products currently sold at The Papeterie with a Spring/Summer theme. Take them in to be displayed in store and we will also feature them on our website. Good Luck and have fun.

Aren't those prizes fantastic, I'd certainly love to be winner, wouldn't you?

I was at The Papeterie yesterday morning, stocking up on cardstock. Came away with 6 boxes of card and a few pretty extras :)

Would be so easy to spend a fortune there though, they really do have a lovely selection of products.

I'll have to try and get a card made for their challenge:)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend

I do hope you are feeling much better. I still cannot get over those Kanban grils cards you posted. Your woven background here is gorgeous with the buttons & who'd have thought ribbons for a boy. Glad the teaching went well & intrigued by your spending.........
Take care & have a good week.
