Saturday at C. J's....

Good evening all, and thanks for popping in today. Hope your Sunday has gone well, I must welcome our new always I do get excited when I see another new face in our gang...

I do hope that you will be very happy here.

I am just sitting down after crafting nearly all day...I have another magazine deadline tomorrow...phew...just finished the samples, now got the write ups to do, but I feel some food is needed first.

Yesterday it was workshops at C.J. Cardcrafts in Edgeley...and wow how busy they were...

We had some inky play and created our very own designs on some shoulder bags...I do love looking for different and unusual projects to create..

Look at all these wonderful ladies with their makes


This was my example...using some of my favourite Clarity stamps.

Some Distress inks and some masking,,

Tracie made this one,

And this one is Mary' cool are they?

I just love it when everyone is so happy with their makes

In contrast we also had Groovi time...and learnt all about incorporating Stamps and Groovi

The feather was stamped using black Archival ink on the front of the parchment, and left to dry , before the Groovi part was added

I do love how the white work looks on the feather.

Love this Ornate Panel boxes plate too...

And I have been playing with my new light panel and my pricking tool...hope you approve...I am still playing catch up Emma....but enjoying every minute of it.

I have another very busy week ahead...but really looking forward to Glasgow on Saturday...lots of Crafty friends to catch up with. Hope you have a lovely Sunday evening...

We have blue sky and sun at the moment...

Much love and hugs
