Thursday already....

Good evening all and thanks for your company....

How is your week going? It is all go here....mind you that is usual....

We had Mikeys Birthday yesterday...I can't believe he is 24....it only seems yesterday that he was born...

One of his friends is leaving work...she is very talented and is pursuing her arty career so he needed a quick card...this is what I came up with...,,I thought butterflies were a good choice as they represent not only Craft but change as well...

I do like to decorate the envelope to match...

Yesterday was also workshop day in Hazel Grove...we used the wonderful Finches stamp set from Clarity...

We used the Matrix Feather stamp and white embossing powder to make a resist background...

I do love these finches...

We had quite a discussion about colours...and we decided in the end that artistic licence ...the Finch can be any colour we want to colour him in...why him...I'm not sure...he just looks male.....or is that just me????

For our second card we used Distress ink to stamp with and then did some water colouring...

I like to leave the cards without a specific sentiment and then the crafters can choose their own depending on how they want to use the cards..

It was one of the ladies Birthdays too..and Rachel brought cakes...thanks Rachel..

Today I have been trying to tackle the mountain that is the ironing basket!!!! Plus making samples for the next Clarity show...it will soon be here...

More ..must have stamps....perfect for An Easter present and less calories than an Egg....

Must go now and make some food...Karl is on his way home from London...he will be in about 7-30... So better get something in the oven...

Enjoy your evening...

Love and hugs...

Jo. xxxx
