Wonderful Wales

I've had a great day in Wales today.  I was doing a demonstration at Carole's Craft at Pugh's Garden Centre.  It was great to see the lovely Debbie, Mandy, the other girls and their fabulous customers.  This is my third visit to this shop and I always get a warm welcome and it's so nice to see friendly faces.  One of the girls who came to see me today was the talented Menna.  She's been stitching the Cute Companion characters on the back of her jacket - just look at how much work has gone in to it!

Just a couple of cards to share with you today and a sneak peak of some brand new Popcorn products!  Check back next week for more details.
This card is made using the Popcorn Platinum stamp set - Lovely Bubbly.  It's a set I know I'll be using a lot as I have a soft spot for champagne - pink or otherwise.  This card was inspired by the challenge at:
Totally Papercrafts - one for the girlies

This second card was inspired by the image challenge at:
It was the bright colours and the large flower that inspired me to make this card.

As if my day wasn't busy enough, I headed off to Weston-Super-Mare to meet up with some friends for a 1940's swing weekend, filled with live bands and lots of dancing:
There I am all dressed up for the Friday night dance, with my little Dorothy shoes on that I bought in Italy.  I love this outfit - thanks to wonderful Shona at Heyday Vintage Style Clothing, she brings us the best in vintage clothing but great to dance in to.

Some people really do arrive in style (not me!)

The first of the bands we saw this weekend  - The Pete Long Orchestra

Later the same evening another band - Honey B & The King of Sting.  I loved the female saxophone player she had great stage presence.

So a very long day but filled with lots of Ginger adventures, so all is well in my little bubble.  I hope  your day has been filled with a even little bit of happiness.
