The most fantastic day!

Well I have had the MOST fantastic day today. Ive been out with my crafty chums Michelle, Elaine, Barbara, Debbie and my Mum and were were met at The stampman by the most gorgeous Georgina and her beautiful daughter Joanne. I first met Georgina and Joanne 2 years ago on a craft retreat at Malham. I sat next to Georgina and we hit it off straight away - I just love her to bits and dont see enough of her. Joanne is also fabulous - both extremely talented crafters not to mention the high flying job Joanne does as a Lawyer!
Georgina always spoils me rotton and this is the gift she brought me today.



Looks inside the draw packed with goodies aw me love its gorgeous thanks sooo much xx

We watched a metal embossing demo at The Stampman - look out for more on Michelle's blog as she bought a set to do it. As always at Jill and Ian treated us to their best hospitality with cuppas and choc biscuits as well as a sale day - who could resist! so I have 2 more adirondack dye ink pads, some stickles, a background stamp, some eazi mount and a wooden frame to alter - brilliant thanks so much Jill and Ian we had a fab time!
Then back to my house for lunch - chicken and vegetable soup (homemade) and crusty bread rolls followed by doughnuts and Debbies fab flapjack and choc biscuits Yum!
By 1pm we were ready to go visit Embsay Mills for the demo day. Saw my crafty Idol Dyan in action with perfect pearls and her new paper range and various other brill stuff such as the paperartsy stamps and papers - they are so lush and available here . back to Embsays shop to pick up THE MOST AMAZING GOODY BAG EVER! then over to the pub for a very large glass of wine hic! I got quite fresh which was 'appen as well (a bit of Yorkshire in there im afraid)because my Mum found a grey hair on my head and pulled it out to show me - the wine helped to mask the distress a little!
Back to mine for more refreshments and a show and tell with our goodies.
I had a brilliant day girlies thanks so much for your company x
