Stitches...Here We Come...

Morning folks...by the time you are reading this...well that is if Mr Blogger hasn't decided to have a grumpy day...Charlotte Rachel Debbi and yours truly will be waking up in Birmingham and getting all set for our first day at Stitches...I was beginning to think I wouldn't make it when it started to snow heavily in my neck of the woods on Saturday morning but it takes more than a little bit of snow to close Aberdeen Airport...then I was hit by a tummy bug Saturday night/Sunday morning...hopefully 24 hours on a water only diet will have done the trick...let's put it this way...I was going even if I had to shovel the runway and be stretchered on to the plane.  We're in mega excitement mode..."kids in a sweetie shop" and are raring to go.  As soon as the doors open we will be hot footing it at supersonic speed to say hello to the lovely Tim and Mario and suss out these babies...
Then I will be popping by the Fiskars Stand to check out the samples...yes the ones that had me nearly losing the plot and tearing my hair out. The brief was 6 themes (4 samples per theme) card/scrapbook page/home decor/gift box etc so here goes...
MOTHER'S DAY






BIRTHDAY






CHRISTMAS






I'll be back tomorrow to share the other 3 themes...DEBBI will be sharing BTS titbits from the show over on Facebook and Twitter doing her best Mario J Rossi impression but must dash...let the fun begin.
Hugs Kath xxx

No wonder you had your hands full with all those samples. Hope you're fully recovered. Have my Distress Markers now safely ordered as I did a bookshop duty again & had almost sufficient pennies.
