A Lone Cypress in Anglesey

Good evening all and thanks for joining me for a few moments. I do hope that you have had a lovely day .

It has been our regular Anglesey workshop today and as always it has been great to spend time with such wonderful , creative and kind ladies...the Crafty Crew from Anglesey....

We used the fab Lone Cypress stamp which has a really useful stencil with it too, and you know how I love to use Stencils.


For our first card design we used white embossing powder to make a resist, look at all these great samples...

Then it was time to play with the stencil along with the stamp...

We even managed a Groovi demonstration before lunch...In fact I was worried that two of our ladies were going to miss out on lunch as they were so engrossed with their parchment work...


Distress ink blending was next and wow just look at these...fabulous work ladies...

Thanks Julie for the tea and cake,,.you are a star...

And we finished the day with a quick and easy card..stamping in Disress ink and dragging the colour out with water,..

It was great to meet our two new ladies, Kathy and Ann, plus one of our regular crafters was ill today we all send Linda healing vibes and good wishes...hope you feel better soon.

It has been a lovely sunny evening and we have walked Tess and Eric , who are now both sleeping like babies...

So I am going to open a bottle of something bubbly...and take five..

I have another busy week ahead with workshops on Wednesday and then the Clarity Open Days in Crowborough Friday and Saturday,...

Enjoy your evening all
