Nice Buns!

Well it amused us at the motorway services! 
A little update on our adventures at the trade show at the NEC.  We discovered that all roads out of the NEC lead to Coventry... and ended up taking the wrong one! but after a slight detour we made it back to the hotel.  Lots of lovely things to see at the show.  Tim Holtz was demoing the new distress pens - they look rather good - particularly impressed with the white pen that is white even on black card and can be blended like any other ink.  Did a lovely workshop with Stix2 using their double sided film, foils, glitter, mica powders and chipboard die cut out into frames!  We've only made it half-way round so far - so more goodies to discover tomorrow.  Here are a couple of my favourite samples so far...

Gorgeous black gold and white cards from Kanban

Beautiful silver bauble peel-offs with bling accents from Woodware

Loving this cat stencil from Dreamweaver
Now to read through lots of catalogues to decide what to order!
