Another fabulous day

Good morning all, welcome to another lovely, sunny day...oh life is good.

We are up and out early this morning driving up north to get the ferry over to Ireland, ready for Clarity Belfast tomorrow....not long now ladies.

Yesterday was a long day with another early start as it was the regular monthly workshop at the Paper Warehouse,( Grosvenor ) in Kendal. As always it was great fun and maybe a little naughty at times!!!! Not me off course....

We used the Fantasy Flower stamps, as requested by the ladies and I am so happy to report that they were so well received...phew...

Our first design used the circle aperature stencil, a nice quick and easy warm up card...

Our second design was a bit more arty with some gesso and Kraft new favourite technique...I bet it will soon become other people's too..

Then it was lunch know how much I enjoy the buffet provided....


Backing papers, and clear embossing powder for this one...also some colouring in,,,so that teacher could have a nap in the

And to finish off some inky play and a touch of white embossing powder...oh and the usual little dots on the bubbles...

It was great to have Maggie back in the UK and with us for the summer...

After a flying visit to my parents it was back home and packing the van ready for this morning...oh I do hope I have remembered everything,,,

Mind you, if not ...we are crafters...and we will just use what we have....

Must dash...

Busy, busy, busy..

Love and hugs
