Clarity time in Cumbria.

Good afternoon and thanks for dropping in on a Sunday. I do hope that your day is going well.

Our Sunday dinner is cooking quite nicely in the oven and Tess and Eric are both asleep after a long walk this afternoon.

Yesterday it was Clarity Cumbria and as always it was great to see everyone.

We started with a warm up card using Clarity stamps and the new background stencils.

They really are so versatile

Look at these wonderful cards

After coffee it was out with our Distress inks

( I love this wilted violet colour...)

Such wonderful colours.

Then after lunch we had a bit of a jigsaw time...and I do believe that they all arrived home bits missing....

A bit of reflecting after tea and cake...( thanks Sheila)

There is some great inspiration here.

And the weather was great too....I had a lovely drive home...

I am so lucky to spend so much time with lovely , crafters....and I can't believe that we are booking venues for next year already...

I had better get week is another busy week with workshops in Hazel Grove and Edgeley, Cheshire...mmmm....what have I got planned for the crafters....pop back and see.

Take care....

Much love and hugs....
