The Craft Barn Extravaganza Weekend - New Kadoodle Stamps

Hi everyone, new Kadoodle stamps are being launched tomorrow at the Craft Barn Extravaganza and I'm very much looking forward to demonstrating them with watercolour using Ranger Distress inks alongside my friend Sandra who is also launching gorgeous new stamps and all the other talented demonstrators who'll be attending. So if you're in the area we'd love the chance to see you there. Chris x
