Christmas in July with Sheena Day One

Just escaped to the house while we have a thunderstorm, hope it doesn't last to long as I have plenty of samples to make before I go on holiday tomorrow.
Well our Sheena has a 4DD  starting on Monday, so my fellow Inkoids and myself have been very busy. Just wait to see how busy, poor Sheena has been overwhelmed with the boxes arriving on her doorstep.
On this show there is both new stamps and embossing folders, as well as some old favourites from last year. So great to use with your Spectrums, silks, Distress inks and embossing powders, not forgetting your gilding wax .
The card above was made using last years stamp but with one of the brand new embossing folders.
Since starting this post I have travelled down to Cornwall to start my holiday. Pleased to say the weather is good, hot and sunny, couldn't that about Gloucester. We decided to have a break from travelling on the way down and stop off at Gloucester Quays. The were in the middle of a food fair weekend , it would have been brilliant, had the heavens not opened. We were soaked to the skin, I feel sorry for the stall holders, nobody was standing still long enough to see what they were selling. The outlet store was busy, everybody escaping the rain. Did buy a waterproof coat at a bagain price, just in case but it's not going to rain any more is it.........
Well I can't complain about our holiday cottage, every need is catered for, there is even one of those things that gets hot, something you use on clothes...........
Just to answer Mrs B's question , a clue, it's something to use with ribbon.
Well I'm shattered , an early night , maybe, of to Plymouth tomorrow.
Will check in tomorrow night, another plus to this place free Wifi, can't be bad.
Happy Crafting
