Good evening

Good evening all, thanks for joining me for a few minutes, we have another new folllower to welcome to the fold , so do come in and feel at home.

oh my , I am a bit late has been a very busy day and I still have jobs to tick off the list...

It has been a lovely day though with our regular workshops in Hazel Grove, it is always such a fun day..

And we had mince pies ( gluten free..yah ) thanks Julie.

We made cards using the boy with birds stamps,,.using book paper and some distress ink blending


We also talked about making presents ....after all we are in November now...soon it will be the big day and the man in Red will be calling..

So here is a frame made using the same techniques as the card


I started with some stencil card and blended some blue ink.

Followed with some purple

And then some water spritzing, and a rather lovely Clarity sentiment

Next I added some stickles glitter glue, I like to use a brush to apply it , and I applied it to all the faux bleached ares

I added a frame and some Clarity butterflies..

Then mounted it into black photo frame,,,

You can even match the colours to the room decor...or use the recipients favourite colours.

Right , I had better get on . I am off to the NEC tomorrow with the girls for a day out and then I am back there on Friday ready to be on the Clarity stand with Barbara and the team....on Saturday and Sunday..

So if you are going do pop over to us and say hi...

Take care all,

Love and hugs

Jo. xxxx
