Goosey, Goosey, Gander...

Good evening all, and thanks for sharing a few moments with me this evening...and welcome to another new follower....I am thrilled that you are sharing this journey with me...( and 200 others....yah...)

Yesterday it was Clarity Cumbria...and as always it was great to spend the day with friends and family...

We had extra Italian treats made by Debbie and Flapjack from Sheila's kitchen...plus some special gluten free Chocolate Fudge cake...mmmmm thanks Freda...

Enough about the food...we do craft as well as eat...honestly..

We used the wonderful new Geese stamps from Clarity...and our first card was my take on Watercolour painting using the Spectrum Aqua Markers...

Such a lovely way to create a background....and we used Linen card...it gives a great texture...

The cards that the ladies made are brilliant , I am so proud of them.....At this point I must mention Maria who was too ill to come,,,so I am hoping that as you read this Maria you are feeling much better.....hugs...

We mopped up our ink palates and made backgrounds for our next card....I went for Canadian geese for this one...

 

And look what the ladies made...

We did have to have a good old Clarity card...sorry but they are my favourite ...

The ladies loved this one too...

Then the new shaped aperture stencils came out to play..(Notice that bobble border again....)

And play we did...

I really love the way that every card is different , and as crafters we can share ideas and inspire each other...

Even the drive home was lovely as the sun was shining....

Today has been cloudy here in more than one way...poor Adam has been in hospital all day...he fell yesterday and has really injured his face...he is home now....but can only drink through a straw....and would you believe that yes I had a full packet of straws in my craft stash...

Good old craft stash...

I will leave you in peace now...

Much love and hugs from me....

Fingers crossed for a peaceful evening...

Jo. xxxx
