The countdown begins ....

Happy Tuesday folks!

I hope you all had a good Bank Holiday weekend, I certainly did!

So ....... what did I get up to ......well!  Friday was a lovely day, going here there and everywhere ..... with a spot of retail therapy thrown in for good measure.  I could have spent a small fortune but ..... I only had hand luggage so I had to be careful (sigh!)  I really need a trip over there with the car ..... there's so many nice things to buy!

Saturday ..... I spent the day on a fabulous Clarity workshop with the the lovely Maria Simms.  It's always fun catching up with the Preston Clarity crew ...... and there was cake!!!
I'm not sure if our workshop was the last one for May ..... I don't want to spoil it if there's anyone out there that hasn't done it yet so here's just a sneaky peek of what we did ......

Four gorgeous card designs, filled with great techniques ..... stencils, masking, stamping onto acetate (always fun!!), colouring using Spectrum Noir pencils, brayering (eek!), getting messy with paints, and of course all using the fabulous Claritystamp products ...... a great way to spend the weekend!

I also got a nice surprise on Saturday morning ...... I'd been ShowCASed over at Less is More for Week 223 .... whoo hoo!!

My little froggy friends proved to be favourites of the LIM crew too.

And I got some exciting news .... I can't say anything more just yet, watch this space!!!

I do love my trips across to the UK but it's always nice to come home again, especially when hubby picks me up from the airport and then takes me out for dinner on the way home!  Then .... when I get home, there's craft stuff waiting for me ....... this little lot arrived while I was away .... guess what I'm doing this week!! (if I get the time)

Oh well .... better get a move on, busy day as usual.
The countdown begins for this years TT Races ..... it all gets underway on Saturday with the start of Practice Week.

It shouldn't affect us much this year .... since we've moved, we're now outside the track so no need to worry about road closures etc.  And ....... hubby is taking Race Week as holiday this year so we should be able to get out and about and soak up some of the atmosphere.  Lets hope the weather's good.

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day.
I've got a friend coming round for coffee soon and I need to scurryfunge before she gets here.  I need to do what ...... I hear you say ...... check out the old English definition here ..... I'll bet that you're a scurryfunger too!!

Cheerio until next time
