A day in Glasgow...

Good evening all, and what a beautiful Sunday evening it is...I do hope you are enjoying it.

Karl and me have just had a lovely long walk with Tess and Eric who are now both fast asleep....and Yes, Karl and me feel like joining them. .You see we have had another busy but enjoyable weekend....

On Friday we traveled up to Glasgow ready for the workshop on Saturday....I have to say that all the ladies who attend this event are so kind and lovely...I have been suffering this week with some cold sores...and anyone who gets them knows how embarrassing they are...I felt such a mess....but do you know the ladies made me feel so good and so loved....I thank them all...

We had Christmas in August and started with a quick make.

And look what the ladies made.

These are all fabulous.

Next we moved onto my favourite card at the moment.... The resist wreath

And just look at all the gorgeous designs.

After lunch we used stencils ...You know how I love Stencils.

I was so impressed with all the lovely work that the crafters made, and such great colours.

Then it was tea and cake,

And look Eileen made a special Gluten Free cake....( bless you lovely lady....)

Our last card uses a die cut.....a snow globe....just perfect for the Wee Folk..

And because there are so many Wee Folk...

There are lots of different card designs that you can make..

I do hope you have enjoyed sharing our makes, after all us crafters do love to share.

Just before I go I need to show you the serviette that I was given...( it did make me smile )

Oh how right is that....

I hope you have a lovely evening and that we all have a good week ahead...

Positive vibes and happy thoughts all round...

Take care and pop back soon,

Jo. xxx
