In the Countryside...

Good afternoon and thanks for looking in on a Sunday afternoon...it is a catch up sort of a day for me...you know the sort where you try to do all those little jobs that you didn't do during the week...I really need to tick some jobs off my list....ready for Monday and another busy week ahead..

I hope you had a good Saturday.... It was Clarity Cumbria for me..and boy did we have a great day...talk about enthusiastic...we were all ready to go 15 minutes early....so we did...

It was lovely to have another three new ladies joining us....

We started off with a warm up Christmas card...well I have to get mine made where I can...

I do love to see how all the cards are so different...

After coffee it was stencil work....with the outer and the Inner...( you get such different results depending on how you use them )

Gill made a good point that it would make an ideal New Home card...

Then it was lunch....and the sun was shining...

 

Full of energy we created our very own Lake District scene

Now , I have to confess that I was suppose to take a photo of the cards at this point but I got a bit distracted with the fact that it was tea and cake time....

It was Debbie's Birthday , and Peter had organised Sheila to make this yummy cake....so you can understand how my mind wandered...!!!!

 

Our fourth design was a nice quick and easy card that would be suitable for so many different occasions...

It is amazing how just changing the colour can change the whole feel of a card design...

We had a few of our regular ladies who were away on holiday....now...although we did miss them....

It did mean that there was extra cake......

All the stamps and stencils are from Claritystamps....and if you check out Barbara's blog from yesterday you will have a sneaky little look at some new stamps....mmmmmm...they will be on Hochanda next Sunday....

Back to today and more ticks needed on this list....

Enjoy your evening all,

Take are.....much love,

Jo. xxx
