Springtime in Cumbria.

Good afternoon all and thanks for popping in today, I do hope that you have had a lovely weekend.

It was our monthly craft session in Cumbria yesterday, as always it is a pleasure to be crafting in the same room with these wonderful ladies and gentleman...

We stared our day with grunge paste and Clarity stencils, to make our base , ready for paint and then some stamping...( we also added some gilding wax....onto our hook, unfortunately I called it a knob!!!!! As you can all got rather silly!!!!! )

These wall mounted hooks are so useful , I have one for my keys and another for the dog leads..

We also had a play with some Ultra Thick Embossing powder and the windmill set of Clarity stamps...

The idea was to make a tile , a sort of Delft design

Then we just had to do some went so well with the tea and cake...

Look at these, I love the effect and the colours are fab...

It is amazing how quickly the time goes when you craft with friends....

An added bonus too was that the sun was shinning for the drive home...

It has been another lovely Spring day today,,.and as I had some work to do this afternoon we decided to take the dogs to Dunham Massey this morning,,,it is such a great place for a walk...

We saw lots of deer , but they were all in their sanctuary so a little far away for a good photo...( sorry )

Tess and Eric had a great time..

They have slept all afternoon

The Sunday dinner is cooking , pork today...and I just have time to fetch the dry washing in before I dish out our food.

So I will love you and leave you for today,

Thanks for your company...

As always...take care and call back soon
