On a roll and another long post!!

Another card from Jo, I hear you say must be having a bad week!! Well, lets just say it could be a lot worse but I have come home from work the last two evenings with the urge to craft rather than the need to craft!! So we are on the up at the mo!! And I must say, I am really enjoying it. I had a fab day on Saturday with Wendy at the sale in Kintbury, demonstrating the lovely Martha Stewart punches, making flowers with the Nellie punches and colouring away with the Copic Pens just pure bliss!! I loved it, just wasn't long enough though! Wendy is off to Exeter tomorrow for the Craft 4 Crafters show, so if any of my lovely readers are going, do pop across and visit Wend on the Stamps and Memories stand as she would love to see you!

Thank you for the blog award I'll pop it on my blog tommorrow on my day off when I've got time to think about the 10 things and 10 people, such a hard choice with so many talented people out there (including yourself)
