The Best Time.....

Morning folks...I just had the best time on my little crafty jaunt to GNPE...a very special thank you to the lovely Sue and Julie at Craftwork Cards for inviting me along and to all the wonderful girls and boys on the Craftwork Cards team for making me feel so welcome...sending you all big hugs and if you've never been to GNPE before....you don't know what you're missing...check it out HERE
a huge thank you to all the lovely crafters who came and joined me for  "The Magical Christmas" Workshops and what a pleasure to meet such a lovely bunch of super duper speedy crafty superstars....I  had a great time....hope you did too...

we had great fun playing with the brand new Frosty Collection....gorgeous colour combos...adorable images to colour...yummy papers...embellishments and gorgeous sparkly Candi...

a big thank you to Nikki...the gorgeous Mrs Polkadoodles for letting me raid her Promarker display for the workshops...it was lovely to catch up with you again Nikki....see you at The NEC...
and of course the best bit is meeting up with all the crafty buddies I haven't seen for ages...they truly made the weekend special...huge hugs to my very special buddy and CWC teamie Lynda and her lovely friend Susan...it was great to finally meet my CWC teamie Kath Woods...to say hello to Esther Jozza Kath and Elaine and all the other lovely folks who popped by to say hello and gave me lots of hugs to pass on to The Furry Boy...I am left thinking that perhaps I should change the name of my blog to "Buddy's Mum's Blog".
Big thank you to the lovely Debbie and Archie for this fabulous sweet card...Timmie papers...Craftwork Cards Candi and this beautiful image...
and thank you to my lovely teamie Kath Woods who left a parcel of treats for the furry celebrity on the Craftwork Cards stand.
And the day just got better and better when two of the sweetest girls in bloggyland...the lovely Emma and Kirsten turned up for the workshop...
check out the gorgeous card Emma made for me...
but no show would be complete without big hugs from the hooligan LOTV girlies...the gorgeous Bev and Jacqui who led me horribly astray in the shopping department...it's that old crafty motto....IF THEY ARE BUYING IT...SO AM I.
I'll catch up with you all tomorrow to share what crafting goodies the Chief Cubbyhole Stash Buyer managed to cram into her luggage and wooohoo a yummy Craftwork Cards give-away.
Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add: if you are reading this Debbie...I've had a bundle of e-mails asking where we can get that gorgeous retriever image....yes I want it too

  2. Hi Kath,
    Glad you had a fab time, I popped by to say a quick hi whilst you were setting up, your cards look fab. Spent far too much money, but it was worth every penny. Hope Buddy didn't miss you too much.
