Strictly come flower arranging...

Yesterday was a lovely day at the Happy Stampers show in Port Sunlight, it was good to catch up with Kay Halliwell-Sutton, travel with Jane and Brenda, watch Linda Simpson demonstrate Mica Powders and to be wowed by the fantastic magic that Maia Simms made with her Gelli Plate...
Oh and I bought some goodies too.....
Then today, Karl and I went to Daisy Nook Garden Centre to see their floral displays and help them raise money for a fantastic Charity.... The Christie Hospital ...(especially close to our hearts as that is where we met when I was a Therapy Radiographer and Karl worked in the Physics department) 
Thanks to an advert that a Facebook friend of mine posted.....thank you Beryl Martin....
As we were walking round Karl pointed out that one of the displays had been created by one of our craft class ladies.


Here is Joan Quinland's interpretation of the Samba, Salsa and Limbo...


How fabulous...


Look at the leaf platting...

As we were having our lunch, I read the programme and to my surprise found another display from one of our crafty friends....


This is the work of Chris O Hara and Sue Goldsbey,


And is their version of the Argentine Tango, 



Just look at those colours,

I just had to take some photos to share with you all, I do hope that you like them.
I have a busy week ahead .....I am now part of the Clarity Challenge Blog Design Team and their is a new Challenge on Tuesday so pop back and see what I have come up with....
Wednesday is craft classes, Saturday is workshop day at Crafts4u2do, I also have some Clarity samples to get in the post and another magazine piece to compose....but, I do love what I do....so I am really looking forward to it....
Hope you have a good week planned too,
Ttfn.....Jo. X
