Thank You..Thank You..Thank You

Morning's silly morning o'clock in the North East of Scotland....the weekend is over and time to get back to the crafty stuff after a real fun day yesterday with the grandkiddies....where on earth do they get all that energy from....the weather was absolutely scorchio and I was fair tuckered out by the time I got home.  Another busy week in the cubbyhole and if I want to have a "lazing on the sofa..glued to the TV " day on Friday for The Royal Wedding.....I need to get a move on with the samples for my Demo Day at Papercraft Boutique on 7th it's going to be four days of getting all inky and grungy with Tim Holtz....but first...time for some  thank yous for the gorgeous cards that arrived in the cubbyhole last week from.....

my lovely bloggy buddy
a super cute thank you card for her goodie parcel...
and my lovely buddy Fiona gave me this gorgeous card when we met up recently  for coffee and a chat
Fiona came along to my Hero Arts....Masking Technique Class at The Papeterie.....I love how she took the technique and did her own thing with it.....isn't it the colour

Sizzix have now been in touch about my naughty the biggest thank you of the day is to Tim Holtz for all his help....not only is he a creative genius who is passionate about his products....he's a wonderful Ambassador for the Craft Industry and a fabulous Advocate for customer relations.   TIM...I salute you.....being an American citizen he won't be appearing on the New Years Honours List anytime soon...but in my eyes he is a real toff...a diamond geezer and will always be... Lord Tim of All Things Holtziness.
I wasn't going to tell  you about my huge numptie moment yesterday but hey this is a warts and all here we laughing please.    I set off on the 45 minute drive to deliver Easter Goodies to the grandkiddies....half way there I realised I had the parcels but had left the Choccy Eggs at home....a quick dash into the nearest Tesco and it's sorted...who's ever going to know.   But I now have 3 huge chocolate eggs sitting in the cubbyhole...they obviously have a sell by date so there is nothing else for it but to bite the bullet and force myself to devour them...the old teeth are groaning in protest already.
Catch up with you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add: if you live in my neck of the are welcome to pop in for coffee and a chunk of chocolate egg if you don't mind the odd splash of alcohol ink...

    I'd love to help with the eggs but since I'm being really good about what I eat I'm trying not to eat sweeties and chocolate!! Lucky I took the kids' Easter eggs down 2 weeks ago, just hope Catriona hasn't eaten them.

  15. Kath...can you see me bowing to Mr. Holtz all the way over here in Nebraska, USA? Way to go I just hope it will be resolved to your satisfaction. I hope he created a real upheaval in the CS Dept. of Sizzix, and that we will all be able to benefit from your distasteful experience.
