So, some feedback for the 'why weren't you demonstrating' questions!
I put my name down for a crafty day a while ago, before I was asked to demonstrate at a local craft event.  By the time I was asked it also turned out that I was 'without car' this weekend.
So, in the first instance I thought I had to pass because prep for a demo didn't really fit into the agenda as you can tell from the chaos of my previous post and not being able to get there was the final nail in the coffin.  A shame as I love demonstrating but I'll be back next time.

I was working on a plan b to still attend today's event when I was rescued by Julia who also came today and very kindly drove us - many thanks to Julia.

So ... today I have been on a Stampin' Up stamp-a-stack day with Jo Dumbleton near Wimborne.  And what a great day it was.  We made 12 cards!!  Made me realise how much you can do in a day although it does help when everything is laid out in front of you and you don't have to unearth the house to find anything.

Aren't they fab, I'm so pleased.  Even more so as I have several of the stamp sets to make some more.

It was great to use so many products and Jo's Mum kept us supplied with drinks and made a lovely lunch.

A better view of the card made using the mosaic stamp set.  This is a set I was convinced I wasn't interested in when I saw it in the catalogue but I have seen some lovely cards made with it and think this colour combo is really smart.

This is using the Gorgeous Grunge set which had sort of caught my eye and I love this card!

And just for Karen I am pleased to report that without taking Mum with me today I managed a raffle prize and came away with 3 lovely new ink pads.


  1. What a lovely selection of cards Jill and 12 of them...well done for winning a raffle prize. Like you the Mosaic set has grown on me..


  2. What a fab set of cards Jill. Love the anniversary card, but like you it didn't catch my eye......on the other hand I've been umming and ahhing about the grunge set but love what you've done with it. Might just have to slip that onto my list for next month! Well done on winning the raffle prize.....at least Heather's luck rubbed off on you! lol

  3. Well that certainly was a productive day and you might have tempted me with the mosaic set - I wasn't sure when I first saw it. Well done for winning a raffle prize too. You were missed at the show but you also missed a thunder storm in the afternoon with the usual small river running through the marquee!!
