Cow Parsley...

Good evening all, how has your day been? Mine has been lovely....I do love workshop day in Hazel Grove...you see I have been teaching some of these ladies for many years now....they are such special friends and we have been through so much together.

Today we used PanPastels, I do love these and the effects that you can get...our stamp of the day was the Cow Parsley stamp from Clarity....

This was our first project...

Simple but elegant , and all the ladies made great cards....

We had extra chocolates today......thanks Adam.....

This was our second project...

Using linen card, it does give a brilliant textured look...

Some Stickles added extras sparkle...

Eileen was too ill to come today....we did miss you Eileen....and we kept your chair warm....

Oh and we ate your chocolate..!!!!!!.....hope you soon feel better......

Karl has just made me a coffee so I am off to sit with him and Tess and chill.....oh did you see the events at Manchester airport yesterday? I was sat quietly colouring in ( samples for Barbara ) when the noise of the jets made me jump so much...Tess and me ran outside and this is what we saw.....

Honestly the noise was so loud...I was then transfixed to Sky news for the next hour....

Those poor passengers......and all that disruption...

Catch you soon....love and hugs from me....

  2. Beautiful cards. I have used the masking panel technique and it makes some great effects. Have a good weekend, hopefully with no more plane scares. XX

  3. That's such a lovely card. I'm just back from the Crowborough retreat - you've given me another great idea for a panel card!
