Mothering Sunday

Good afternoon all, hope you are having a lovely Sunday. To my wonderful Mum, and all Mums out there I would like to send lots of love and special wishes.

I had a lovely surprise last night when Mikey finished work early and came home with a beautiful bunch of flowers, and yes they did bring a tear to my eye. You see in knew that both Adam and Mikey had to work today so I had Said to them just to forget about it being a special day .

I have just finished some ironing, so whilst the soup is cooking I thought we could have a chat.

Yesterday it was workshops at CJ Cardcrafts in Edgeley, Cheshire, and we had a morning off MDF and an afternoon of Groovi.

As always I get so lost in the class and chatting to people that I forget to take photos. But thanks to Janet I have a couple to share with you.

These are lovely and very useful hook plates from Creativ, and can be decorated in many different ways. Here we used Chalk Board paint and some embossing

A great place to hang your keys...and then you know exactly where they are . They can be personalised with names etc...another great gift idea.

For our Groovi class we used the beautiful lace flower and netting plates....they can be found here...

It was great to see so many ladies getting into the Groove ....and oh my ...it was so quiet...

Although I added colour to the first design , I wanted to leave this one just with the white work...and the space at the top is left blank so that a sentiment, name etc can be added.... I really do think that personalised cards are just so special.

I used the Clarity corner punch a real must have I my opinion.

Remember that Barbara is on HOCHANDA today and tomorrow with live shows and some really exciting new Groovi products.

All our snow has gone now , but Friday was a different story, and Eric was so excited...he loves the snow.

Tess , well, she really isn't bothered what the weather is doing....she just loves to run and play in the fields.

And look who I spotted , watching us from a tree.....

Such beautiful scenery

This photo , I am saving , as I want to turn it into Christmas cards.

Oh....my soup is ready....better go and eat it....still jobs to do , as I want to get to the bottom of my list ready for next week....Monday means a new list .........and lots on it already with workshops in Hazel Grove and Glasgow...

Enjoy your evening.....stay safe....and thanks for all the lovely messages , emails etc passing on your good wishes to Sheila, she is much better and sends you a big Thank you...

Love and Hugs.

  6. Lovely makes Jo. I will have to look up Creativ as I could really use those hooks.
    I'm sorry Mikey & Adam couldn't spend the day with you but you did get some gorgeous flowers. We spent the day with Gareth & his family - a really lovely day including chocolates!
    Take care & I will see you on Wednesday
