Last day......

Last day of the reveals, before we all set off on our journeys from different parts of the globe. I, as you have come to expect, am totally up to date and ready. Samples done, bags packed, everything ship shape and in perfect order....!!!!!!!

WTF.????? Sorry dreaming again.!!!!!

Still in full blue arsed fly mode..!!!!!!!!!!!


Tim's are HERE

Wendy's are HERE

And mine are Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere.........................

DS019 Say what you mean.

Yet another set of quote stamps, but this time with a difference.  Oh yes, you asked for them and you've got them. My weird, tell it like is, pearls of wisdom.

Classics include....

"If at first you don't succeed...give up !! "

"Never be too proud to serve frozen peas"

And the much requested...

"I don't like you, you're very ugly and have no manners at all.!"

Then a big fave of mine, my background set...

DS020 Basic Backgrounds

So that's t all 12 of my stamp releases, unfortunately I have left all the samples of the last 2 sets at work so no piccies, big oops and all that. I'll try remember to put some on tomorrow.

Had a fabby workshop today, another of the extremely popular BIG canvas painting class.  As before the students were absolutely brilliant and produced stunning results.

Sexy Susie was fed up of waiting for me to come up with the promised goods for her dining room, so had to do it herself, and a mighty fine job she made.

Anne-Marie, showing how far she has come from having to have everything in a straight line, lol

Steph with an unusual but really effective colour scheme.

Julie's canvas, very serene and calming...just like her....Not !!!! lol

Jen started off wanting hot reds, but made a fabby choice of blues and browns.

The texture on Jackies really, really jumps out at you. Stunning.!!

Really vibrant colour scheme from Anna, again super 3d quality...

Chris stunned herself with the brilliant finish of her canvas.

And Ali, back for her 2nd canvas in 2 weeks...Not sure which of hers I prefer..!!

And here's mine...Yes I did another, you can't teach with out demoing, lmao... Anyway Our Ben has nicked the first one so that only leaves me with two..!!

Well done ladies I salute you. There will be another canvas class in the Winter brochure for those of you who are green with envy and kicking yourself for not booking..

Whilst many of you are enjoying the hot weather, I am fearful that Our Ben is suffering from a massive attack of sunstroke...

Why.?? you may ask..

Well he's only frikkin gone and reduced loads of the Wendy Vecchi and Tim Holtz stamps. !! Now I know we have to make way for all the new but you should see how much he's knocked them down to. If I were you I would get them in your baskets pronto, before his hallucinations stop and he returns to normal.!!! Find them HERE and HERE.

OK bath and a cheeky glass of Vimto awaits...

Enjoy xx
