Flower Circle & Sneak Peek. . . . . . . . .

Good morning blogging chums. Hope you are well.

Sorry its been a few days but I've been busy sorting stock out and loading it onto the website and also getting sorted for yesterday's workshop with John as I was in charge of the buffet.

The workshop went fantastically well and it was lovely to see some familiar faces and to meet some new ladies too. Everyone was lovely and it was a great atmosphere, so thank you to those of you that came along.
There will be another one in October so details will follow later this week.

Now, its back to John's stamps and this fantastic wreath.

White card
Green pearlised card (Lime Tree)
John Next Door Flower Circle stamp
John Next Door Butterfly Corners stamp (sentiment)
Presscut Squares and circles dies
Memento Dew Drops in greens, lilacs and dark pinks

I stamped the green layer to give the impression of leaves.
Such a quick and easy card but sometimes, simple is good (that's what I keep telling Mr D lol!!!).

And, now a sneak peek of what's coming on the website.............

These are just some of the lovely items I have bought for the web store, with more stock coming this week.

Hoping to go live during this coming week but have to get the red carpet cleaned as Kate (cuilliesocks) and Milk Tray Man are coming south for a visit to Coventry for a few days from tomorrow. I've had to make room for the gin supplies and a hookah.......that's a pipe and not an interactive gift for Alistair lol!!!
Really looking forward to it as I haven't seen Kate for a couple of years. Have some activities planned, including meeting up with Nursey Harrop and Mr Lockwood for lunch on Tuesday. With everything going on, I may not get time to visit your blogs but wlll catch up asap.

Well, scheduling this so its time for bed now as its been a long but very enjoyable day.

Italian GP today but only highlights so will spend the afternoon avoiding the news so I don't see the result.

Have a good Sunday.

    Love today's card, this shows that stamp off to perfection.
    Enjoy your company with Kate and the Man, and have a good meet up with John and the Nurse!!! You do lead an exciting life, I'm pleased I know when you are going out as the "wrecking crew" can get out the secateurs and trowels and pay you a visit!!
    Take care with that carpet.

  18. Oh Ang,
    Personally, I blame old age but I forgot to mention all the goodies on show. Very interesting (said slowly with a German accent) and I await with bated breath the grand opening of your craft site. Who will be cutting the red ribbon?
