Yee haw!!!!!


****Stop Press****
This is just to let you know that as from yesterday...my fortunes changed in my small world of Cowboys & Custard merchandise.I am going to be eating, sleeping, dreaming ... and most definitely.. making.. greeting cards for the foreseable future... as an order for 936... yes that is nine hundred and thirty six .... greeting cards, came through from my agent..
So please forgive me if I am absent for a while..
It troubles me when I can't get to my blog and I do suffer from cold turkey syndrome if I don't communicate with you all on a regular basis...
I shall be complete gibbering wreck by the time I have finished this card order but hey....... I can't afford to turn it down.

So it's back in the saddle again and hi ho Silver ....

Much love to you all and hope to be back soon..XXX

P.s Dear Michelle from Chellebez ( Adam and Michelle) has tagged me... Thank you Michelle.. I will endeavour to fulfill this task over the next few days .... it will give me something to think about while I am slaving over a hot badge machine.

That's fantastic news Michele! So pleased for you. A really great order. Sounds like it must be for a pretty big customer. Good luck with getting it all done. It'll be worth the blogging break once it is all finished and packed up ready to go. x

Greetings Kemo Sabe. Goodness, gracious, me, you are going to be a busy little bee, you did say you liked bees didn't you! More good news for the tax man I fear, but as you say not one to turn down. Maybe by the time you complete all 936, you will be back on the blog circuit around about the same time as me? Protect your fingers from those sharp pins, you need to have them in good working order for when you get back to that keyboard. Take care Michele. x

Congratulations Michele, it was only a matter of time before you would be inundated with orders, they are fabulous cards, well done and good luck in keeping your fingers and eyes from giving up on such a big order, they say vinegar is great for keeping the fingers supple, just dip them in it for 5 mins and see!! as for the eyes , well, cucumber with a peek hole stuck on with sticky tape might just do the job!! lol...thanks for your lovely email, hope to speak again soon , have fun, xxxKath :)

Hi Ho Silver! Congratulations on that great order! Wonder why they didn't order 1,000? :) But bravo to you for having the talent those good folks recognized!!
