Smiles on Friday

Happy Friday!

I hope you have had a good week.  I've  certainly had a busy one.

I've been out crafting with friends,  out for lunch twice a visit from the hairdresser  who really is a friend after 10 years and hubby,s cousin came for a visit.

On Wednesday  I  was both surprised and delighted to find that  I  had won  some Tim Holtz stencils on Rachel,s blog.

I've  been having a play and this is my first card using them, together with one of Tim's Crazy Birds.  I know my new stencils are going to get lots of use.

I,m going to the craft show at Stoneleigh on Sunday with a friend.We,ve arranged to meet up there with two blog buddies I've never met before so  I'm  feeling quite excited.

I,m linking up with Annie on her Stitches in Time blog  where we share what made us smile during the week.

  13. Happy Friday Barb!! So far I've resisted those adorable little birds but the more I see them the more I want them! Unfortunately I gave away my Cuttlebug and all my stencils and dies - I have no idea what I was thinking.

    The young woman did do most of the artwork on her skateboard! It was a black skeleton and she added everything else. She was so sweet to talk with. I noticed her the minute she walked into the place and knew instantly that I wanted a picture. She said everyone asks her for pictures!! haaa I showed her mine and she asked me to email them to her so she must have thought they turned out quite well.

    Have a wonderful time at the craft fair! It's great when you get to meet blogging buddies in person!

    Hugs,
    Kay

  24. Your card is fun. I met the crazy birds on Di's blog. They are not a stamp I would have chosen to buy, but I love all the things I have seen made with them. So I should look harder and think about the possibilities before discarding things, shouldn't I?
    I hope you have a lovely day out at the craft show. Kate x
