It is so nice knowing

Hi Bloggers.

I got back from my parents last night after a nightmare journey down the M1. My Dad came out of hospital late yesterday afternoon - he's ok but needs to go back for a little op some time.

I must apologise for the delay in website orders placed sonce Wednesday not being sent out, I will get to that this morning.

Sorry, just some photos again today - rather tired as I write this. Normal service will be resumed tomorrow with a sneak peek from my Justrite ODS on Hochanda which starts on Tuesday evening. This card features Justrite Doodled Birds, Chicken Wire Background and Text Background Stamps and CS Pixie Powders.

John Lockwood is continuing with a One Day Special on Hochanda today. I'm offering 10% discount on products I have on my website from the shows. You can find them here. Offer applies till midnight tonight or while stocks last. Discount will be applied at checkout.

Thanks for stopping by.

Free card with all website orders (ask for one in the comments box at checkout).
