Another fabulous day

Good evening all and thanks for popping in this Sunday evening...I do hope you have had a lovely weekend.

Today started with Karl and me taking Tess and Eric out for a long walk , then it was home for breakfast.

It has been a day of catching up with washing, ironing, gardening and emails...

Yesterday it was our monthly workshops at CJ CardCrafts in Edgeley, Cheshire, and it was a really fun day,

Glynis had a Summer Event planned and we stated our class by blowing up balloons.... Honestly you had to be there to see the balloon blowing skills of some of the crafters!!!!

Our morning workshop was an inky class where we used one of my favourite stencils...the Leaf wreath stencil...

Some ink blending....

And some masking with drawing gum,,,fab technique ...

It was great to catch up with the regular ladies and also fab to have Paul join us...I did try and behave,,,,well for five minutes,,..

Our afternoon was a Groovi one...using the plate...Frilly circle friend...

I do love this plate , it has so many possibilities...

 

A bit of glitter for Christmas...

Now as you know I am quite new to the world of Parchment...but it is great to lean a new craft and then to pass it on to other crafters.

You see we have all been beginners at some stage,,,and I do feel as a tutor it is important to remember what it is like to be new to things, techniques, etc.. It helps me be a better, more patient and understanding teacher...

So I am busy practicing my snipping....and yes I do mean practing..

Today one of my jobs on the list was to make a Brithday card for a very special lady...Nanny win,,,it will be her 92nd Birthday...( and don't worry , she doesn't read my blog )

So I thought I would carry on and make a card using part of the design from yesterday's Class...

Just don't look to close at the snipping....like I say I am practicing...I just keep telling myself that practice makes perfect.....

Before I go , I just need to remind you that if you pop over to the Clarity website there is a brilliant Sale on Pergamano tools and some Groovi plates

Fill your boots.....

Right , I had better go...time for some food, a shower, then catch up with some tv...

Another busy week ahead...

Much love and hugs

Jo. xxxx
