Anyways, as you know it was the Sincerely Yours papercraft show at Thetford last weekend. About a week before the show, my lovely, uber talented friend Squirrel said that she was going and I was desperate to meet her in person. My similarly adorable and talented friend Sue said she, and possibly Kat, were also going and I could go with them. But Sue thought that Thetford from Gloucester was about 2.5 hours and I'm another 2.5 hours further West than Gloucester. The 5 hour journey was putting a bit of a dampener on the whole thing and after a bit (OK, quite a lot) of umming and ahhing with Squirrel and hubby, I decided to be realistic and listen to my head instead of my heart.
Then I slept on the idea and changed my mind.
The amazing Sue offered to let me stop overnight at her house which meant that it didn't take me long to ignore my head and follow my heart again!
The reality of seeing so many of my lovely crafting buddies (Sue, Kat, Faye, Debs and of course, the chance to finally meet Squirrel) was amazing and there was a lot of hugging and a fair amount of squealing. I am so grateful to Sue for making the weekend possible for me.
And as if that wasn't enough news, I also met the lovely Tracy from Dies to Die For and I am absolutely overwhelmed to report that she's asked me if I would like to join her wonderful team of designers. So a new chapter starts and my first DT card will be next week! Eeeek! Please wish me luck! :0)
Anyway, among all that excitement I need to tell you a little bit about today's card. I've been efficient and combined one card for both my Guest spot at The Ribbon Girl and also the newly released cuties at Lili of the Valley. The image I've used is called Love Petals.
So without further ado, here's my card.
