Thank You...Thank You...Thank You...

Morning folks...I just had the best fun time with the 240 lovely superstar crafters who kept me company for 4 days at The NEC and superstars was putting it mildly...in fact we set a few world cardmaking records...the workshop was timed for 50 minutes and at times I was struggling to keep up with these super duper crafty machines...gold medal position went to the group who romped home in 31 minutes...

and of course it's always lovely to meet up with all my bestest crafting buddies that I only see twice a year starting off with sweet Ali and Andy..my gorgeous mateys Enfys and Jacqui ..my fellow Scot lovely Lorraine and all the other sweeties who popped by to say hello...too many to mention but you know who you are...sending hugs and missing you all already.
Saturday was an extra special day...chilling out at lunchtime with the gorgeous Wetherspoon Girlies and we now have 2 new very special honorary members...the lovely Andrea and Mary from The Ribbon Girl...thanks girls ...loves you all...until the next time.
And just to round up a special day...it was time for the Fiskars Girls to party...good food...vino and great company is a sure way of having a fun evening...big hugs to Severine...Hina...Rachel and Clare for a hilarious night but with the clocks going forward...I have to confess I wasn't feeling quite so chirpy on Sunday morning...an extra big breakfast...big girl knickers and probably the thought that I was going home got me back in the mood and ready to rock and roll for just one more day...
My special Fiskars buddies...Rachel strutting her stuff on the Fiskars Stand...
and Hina demonstrating my Easter Card at The Prima Theatre...
Sending hugs to Penny and Jane from The Art Of Craft for all their help and support and a big big thank you to everyone for making my time in Birmingham so special....roll on November. 
So what about the shopping....well you will have to wait until tomorrow for the big reveal because the suitcase is still sitting neglected in the hall...I had a lazy chill out day yesterday catching up with all the tips techniques and videos from Timmie's Online Class...when I'll ever find the time to have a play is anybody's guess...
unpacking and laundry will be top of the list today after our morning stroll and woohoo it's going to be yet another beautiful day.  A big thank you also for all your lovely comments on my Hero Arts Week and to answer the question..."can the dies and embossing folders be used in other die cutting machines"...in a word YES.
See you all tomorrow over at WOYWW
