Good morning crafty pals. Hope you are being good?
Thank you for all of your wonderful comments, particularly over the last few manic days. You really are a lovely bunch. . . . . . even Bonnie Fletcher, Clyde Killen and their Yorkie getaway driver lol!!! Talking of which, I'm going to I-Player the Gardeners World featuring the wisterias to see if they give an address, which I will then put on my side bar, pretending its my house to put the ram raiders off the scent.
A very warm welcome to David J, Sandra, Linda, mryoak, Morag and Pauline J who have kindly clicked "follow", hopefully intentionally rather than thinking it was the "delete the boring bint" button hahaha!!!
Don't forget, anyone who is a follower and comments on Tuesday's post (click here) is in with a chance of winning the little paddle Prize on offer.
Now, today's card is another sample from the Daisy's Jewels and Crafts shows that were on Hochanda yesterday. I hope you managed to watch. Even though the stamp sets are called "cute" you can do non cute things with them too. I also love the little MDF Christmas shapes too, particularly the leaping reindeer/stag.

I was going for the leaping reindeer/stag against the moonlight look (hopefully achieved).
Well, Tuesday was a long and tiring day as John picked me up in the Craftmobile (its like the Batmobile, but we didn't have to wear our underpants over our tights) at 6.30am.
There is only usually one 6.30 I see in a day and that's pm!!!
They are a really lovely team at Hochanda and it was bizarre that a couple of the presenters and producers came into the Green Room as they wanted to meet "Mrs Duck". Bit embarrassing but if I was "Mrs Smith" they probably wouldn't have been that curious lol! Fascinating though to see behind the scenes.
Helped John set up (and pack up at the end) and didn't he do fabulously. I'm in the queue for some media plates too as they are currently as rare as rocking horse poo.
If you've got a set, bang em on eBay for £50 lol!!!
Thank you for bearing with my post overload this week. I know its usually just a couple of times per week, which normally teeters round everyone's yawn threshold (I thought I'd say that before anyone else does lol!!!) so I hope the post fest hasn't pushed you over the edge.
Next week, normal service will be resumed.
Also, in the next couple of days, John and I will be giving details of a craft workshop day we have set up for 2nd September at a Midlands venue, very handy for the M6, M69(M1), M6(M1) and A46.
That's me for today folks. Be back again tomorrow with another Daisy's card. . . . . . .bet you can't wait lol!!!
