Another great day in Cumbria

Good afternoon all, 
I do hope that you had a lovely weekend. 
It was our regular Cumbria workshop on Saturday 
and what a great day it was. 
Lots of lovely Crafters, 
We laughed, crafted , ate cake 
and  generally had a brilliant day.
A couple of ladies were on holiday , 
But don’t worry , 
We ate your cake too. 

It was a bit of a Christmas party really
as we made a start  on our Christmas cards...
Well, it really isn’t far away ,
In fact   I even bought a lovely, but very large Christmas decoration yesterday 
For the hall of our new home,,,

We used a wonderful stamp set.
Lisa’s Collection - Snowy Wishes 
I do love your designs.  Lisa B...keep them coming 

Our first card, was a nice quick and easy warm up card. 
Just look at these beauties 


Next we did some heat embossing and the resist technique 

Once again, 
Great cards ladies and gent 

After lunch 
We used some of the smaller Stamps 

To make toppers for 6x6 cards 

Billy Brayer even came out to play...

And one of the foliage Stamps makes a great wreath...

It was Surprise Birthday cake for Debbie...
Happy Birthday for today Mrs,,,

And then we used Kraft card to finish off the day 

I kept this design very simple so that it could be used for someone who 
doesn’t like a lot of fuss, or might be having a bit of a hard time at Christmas.
After all it isn't everyone’s favourite time of year...

Sorry , I didn’t get to photograph all of the last cards..
But we do pack a lot into our day...
Don’t we ????

 I must admit , I was shattered when I got home. 
But , 
Shattered in a good way .

Karl is away tonight , so I am going to try and catch up with some jobs on my craft a list 
Blog post done , that’s one tick 
I did add, 
Walk the dogs , so that got an early
Must put some washing in too. 
 I have a magazine piece to write up and email. 
Plus some prepping to do for Wednesday’s class in Hazel Grove..
So I had better get on...

Take care all
Much love and hugs 
Jo. xxx
