Sunday catch up

Good afternoon all, do hope you are having a lovely weekend. Today has been a catching up on washing and ironing sort of day for me...plus a couple of dog walks...it is so muddy down on the fields , but Tess and Eric love it like that ...( thank goodness that we can hose them down in the garden )

Yesterday it was workshop day at CJ.Cardcrafts in Edgeley, Stockport, Cheshire, and we had a play with the Bokeh technique. We had a couple of new ladies joining us , it is always great to meet new crafters...

We did some blending with Distress inks...as you know I do love to use these. I also couldn't resist using these fabulous new stamps from Clarity....I just haven't been able to put them down since I got them,,,

Did you manage to catch Barbara with them on HOCHANDA at 2pm today..?.she is back at 5pm and 8pm too...

They also look wonderful on wood ....

I just couldn't resist...I have literally been stamping them all over.....

The sentiment and dragonfly stamps are also from Clarity and available on the website.

Our second design used a faux Bokeh background...and a die cut poppy...

This is such a quick and effective background to create...

After lunch we had a Groovi taster session...wow so many crafters came ...we even had to ask a couple of ladies to go and have a coffee and come back later...when we had more room...

Thanks ladies, for being accommodating you are so good...

And yes....many starter kits were bought...and so we are planning Groovi workshops...yah...more play time...no wonder I love my job....

Would you believe we had a power cut too...and we carried on In the Groove...just goes to show you really can do it just about anywhere and under any circumstances...although I did suggest that a head torch might help....and yes I do have one at home,,,from my cub leader days...honest....

Right I must dash....boss lady back on the box soon...

Thanks for joining me today...enjoy the rest of your day and see you soon...

Much love and hugs...
