About Me

Hi, I'm Pam and thank you for visiting my blog. I have been making cards for over 10 years and am an independent demonstrator for Creative Expressions. I am lucky enough to teach on cruise ships and also get the chance to demo at The Big Stamping and Scrapbooking Show at Alexander Palace. I run workshops for a local craft shop and if anyone would like details of the them please e-mail me at stephen.smith870@ntlworld.com I love to scrapbook but my all time favourite thing is to get messy with ink!

WOYWW

Another Wednesday, another WOYWW! Hope everyone is well and the Christmas Card preparation is in full swing!

Here's my desk this week.


I'm working on a Design Team project for Creative Expressions using some beer mats that I "liberated" from a pub a while ago!  There's an empty cup, lots of Distress Inks, the Winter Flowers stamp set and of course, my trusty paper trimmer.  In answer to a question a few weeks ago, there are 4 bone folders in the tub (I don't know why there's that many!).

I have been making Christmas cards and I've got a very quick and easy one on the Creative Studios Design Team Blog today (the link is Sam Poole on the right).  The full step by step is there but here's the finished thing.


And the final picture is.....the sweetest kitten in the world...fact!  It's Dr Gonzo!


He's laying on his favourite fleecy blanket and cuddling a knitted toy.  He loves having something to cuddle.  My daughter has just got Dr Gonzo a goldfish to watch swimming around and he's fascinated by it.  Well, the vet did say to try and stimulate him with interesting things!

I'm going away on my travels next week so although I won't be able to join in with WOYWW I'll still be blogging, hope you'll pop by for a visit.  We're down to the final 9 followers for the blog candy...if it happens while I'm away, I'll do the draw when I get back.

There's going to be a blog hop next week with all the Creative Expressions Design Team taking part and prizes on offer.  Have a look at the Creative Expressions website news (there's a link on the right) for details.  It's to celebrate the launch of a brand new product...watch C&C on about 15th/16th November.  There's lots of gorgeous samples that the team have made for the shows.

So, until next time, have a very happy week and many thanks for your visit.  I'll get round as many desks as I can before I go away.

It's my opinion you can never have too many bone folders! Don't know why, I just love them. Dr Gonzo is the most adorable cat I've ever seen - no wonder your daughter fell in love with him. The Christmas card looks beautiful! Thank you for the earlier visit. Have a happy time away. Julie Ann xx

Ha ha liberated beer mats, hope to see the end result. OMG Dr Gonzo is so adorable..is a fish a wise idea?! Might end up stimulating the inside of Dr Gonzo's tummy, if he is anything like my cats :) You have 4 bone creasers and I have 10 pairs of scissors. Cx #29
