Hot and sunny today here, how was it with you?  I say hot, however I believe it is really hot elsewhere in Europe, and it sounds way to hot for me (or Monty dog), so I hope if you live somewhere as hot as that I hope you are surviving it all!  We went to the seaside and down on the sand it was much cooler.

I have popped a couple of 'pages' from Flo's delicious concertina book (as featured on our last Hochanda shows) on Facebook recently, so I thought that tonight I would show you those two pages again plus several more on our blog, so here they are.....

What a clever lady our lovely Flo is, as I'm sure you will agree!

This lovely folding book was created using our latest stamps (note to self: must take them off special offer on Monday!), plus a few more older images.  You will find the newbies here.

Thank you for your lovely company, and your lovely comments always too.

Back soon,

A short blog post from me tonight, but with lots of gloriousness attached, as time has disappeared again since my last post.  We had a lovely week in Northumberland last week to recharge the low powered batteries in us both (and Monty dog loved it too).  Now we have lots to catch up on though, and of course we need to get the latest stamps, released on Hochanda at the beginning of the month, up on our own website asap.  I'm working on that one, lol!

I received these beauties from teamie Sylvie today, and although they are using the new butterfly stamp, which of course isn't up on the website yet, lol again, I thought I would share them with you tonight, because they are so very beautiful, and it's so very nice to see a good design used in different glorious colourways.  Lots more fabulous makes from the teamies with the newbies to come on here in the next few weeks......

Oh my goodness and many thanks to Sylvie!

Back soon,

I will be travelling down to Peterborough again on Monday morning, at daft o'clock, with lovely Lesley (Chocolate Baroque).  We have shows at 4pm on Monday, and 12pm on Tuesday, and Chocolate Baroque (with Lesley and Judith) have shows on Tuesday at 11am and 3pm.  Mostly packed now ready for demos and showing you all the wonderful teamie makes with the brand new stamps launching on the shows.  They are stunning!!  Do we have the bestest teamies in the world?  We certainly think so!

So now I have a mass of sneakies, with an explosion of colour, to share (in no particular order)...

Oh my word how gorgeous!!!

..And here are a couple of sneakys of bits of the new A4 background papers as well, yum...

See you on the box on Monday, and here are all the details you need to watch:

Bye for now, back soon,
