I'm gallavanting again....

Morning everyone..I hope I'm not tempting fate but it looks like Summer has arrived in my neck of the woods. Us Brits are never entirely happy with the weather...it's either too hot...too cold...too wet or too something.  The problem with the scorching variety is the cubbyhole gets the full on afternoon sun making it baking hot and stuffy....it's like working in a sauna...makes you feel like a greasy plook.  Mind you I shouldn't complain..I can dress accordingly but The Furry Boy is well and truly stuck with his super duper thick and double insulated fur coat. I don't want Mr Sunshine taking the hump and disappearing again but could we please have the sun along with a little bit of a cooling breeze...some happy medium kind of weather.
But no worries about cooking in the cubbyhole today...I am skivving off again with my lovely Fiskars Buddy Ann who's come to visit...I'm donning my chauffeur's hat and we're hitting the road for the day doing The Rustiques Tour but before I go it's a quick trip to the Post Office. The Spellbinder and Card Candi samples will be on their way to Craftwork Cards and will soon be winging their way across the Atlantic with Sue and Julie heading for Chicago and CHA where Craftwork Cards will once again be flying the flag for the UK with their fabulous Card Candi....
the last of the sneaky peeks....

I've always wanted to go to CHA to check out all the new must-haves that us crafty girls are going to want...perhaps wangle a workshop or two with the one and only TH and fulfil a lifelong dream...to finally meet my Hero Arts buddy...the lovely and mega talented Shari Carroll...the person who got me into stamping all those years ago and you could say is entirely to blame for my Hero Arts addiction.  I may not be heading for Chicago but I am planning a crafting trip away to somewhere nearer home...once the I have dotted the I's and crossed the T's and got my flight booked...I will be telling all.
Catch up with you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

  4. Hi Kath . . . well THAT card certainly makes good use of Card Candi doesn't it! LOL! Congrats.

    Hugs, Sandra

  5. oh Kath You are sooo inspiring ! I check your blog most mornings after the kids have gone to school (damn those pesky holidays they are upsetting my routine !) and it inspires me to whip thru the housework with the self-made promise to sit down and have some "me"time at the craft table .
    Keep up the good work.

  6. well if you ever make it to CHA you had better be smuggling me there in your suitcase too - and I'm not fussy, winter or summer CHA is fine with me lol
    have a great day gallivanting and thanks for the lovely comment about my video

  7. Have a fab day - would love to visit Rustiques (one day maybe...) Love n a hug anj x

  8. Enjoy your trip out. Poor Buddy, my Skipper know how you feel in this weather. Take care. Hugs Anesha

  9. WE've got drizzle cool & almost time to put the heating on again so that I can keep my fingers crafting - seems we need a compromise!

    PS - I'm small enough to go in your suitcase but not quite for the handluggage, oh fiddle - it'd be much too cold for me in the luggage hold! Better abandon that idea.

  10. the weather is beautiful here (Essex) that card is stunning x Leigh x

  11. Love your candi card to bits :O) Will have my eye out for these "yummy" thingies.
    Hugs Laila


  12. Hi Kath hope you've had a lovely day. Weathers gone down hill here. With heavy rain and thunder forecast. Never mind as long as we can craft to keep us happy. Hugs xChrisB

  13. Loving your sneaky peeks again Kath.

    You must have had better weather today than us. Quite dull today but at least it was dry. Hope you enjoyed your day out.

    Max is sympathising with Buddy. He hasn't been enjoying the sunny, warm weather. But Blue doesn't mind it at all!

  14. Mmmmmmmmm, I have put two and two together and think I have come up with the answer, and I am so thrilled. I rang and asked if I could book and it was a bit previous but I am assured that I will be on the list and if I a not then there will be murder. Read all about it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
