My head hurts :(

and the only drink I had last night was water! Lovely meal at Anatolia in St Vincent Street - it's a Turkish restaurant (my friend's husband is Turkish!) Never had Turkish food before but it was lovely. There was even a belly dancer there and a few of the ladies at the table were persuaded to have a go at the belly dancing too. Thankfully she didn't pick on me! Been a busy weekend so far. Had the Stampin' Up training in Edinburgh on Friday which was great. Really good day, met some great people, including 2 ladies from Northern Ireland who had got up at 4am to make it over for the training - I would have been sleeping by about 10am!!! On Thursday night I had a major panic attack thinking that no one would want to swap with me at the training - it's a tradition at SU training to take along swaps to swap with other demos. Well, I'm pleased to report that actually I had nothing to worry about because out of the 3o swaps I made I only brought back 4. Happy bunny! This is the swap below. It's made using the Vintage Vogue set and the Very Vintage wheel. This is the black version but I made lots of other colours too. Although I think the black was possibly my favourite. I shall take a photo of the swaps I got in return and post it through the week. I also had a birthday card to make this week for a friend, my oldest friend, who I met the day we both registered for Primary school! She lives in Lossiemouth now so we don't see each other very often. I kinda based it on my swaps, you can see the way my mind was working last week eh?! I've used the So Happy For You SaleABration set for the Birthday wishes greeting. I hope she liked it! This last card is the card for last night's birthday girl (although it's actually her birthday today!) It started off as an experiment but I liked what I'd done so it made it to being a card. I've used a Tim Holtz stamp although I've no idea what it's called!

I'm going off now to do a spot of housework - I'm going to see if I can spot anything that needs doing, lol!

Hi Susan, sorry I must have missed you at Edinburgh because I've not got one of your lovely swaps!! Presumably that means you didn't get one of mine either! If you still want to swap let me know and I'll get one in the post to you. Helen xx
