AWOL - Sorry!

Is it really 13 days since I last posted! The time does fly when you are having fun!

Had a lovely workshop at The Glitter Pot on Friday, lovely group of ladies as ever, used the Sorbet Souffle in the morning and they we created our own range of cupcakes in the afternoon. Sorry but I forgot to take pictures!

Here is a card I made using Craftwork Cards gorgeous new 8x8 embossed cardstock cut into squares to create a background accented with stamped flowers from Kay Carley's stamps that I bought recently.

Kay taught me some tricks with the Copics and I have stamped onto Craftwork Cards Silver Ice pearlised card and I have to say I love the results. The embossed papers come in 5 different designs, 2 sheets of each design in a pack for just £3.75 - a bargain! The designs are: little dots, daisies (of course), paisley, large dots and swirls. They look stunning left white and highlighted with glitter glue or colour them with chalks, ink pads, specialist paints and mists.

At the weekend we went up to London to Carla and Brendon's engagement party. Carla is our niece and they are getting married in May next year and Im helping Carla to make her wedding invitations - only helping not making them all!

Anyway they had a picnic in a local park up in London and it was really lovely except for a bit of rain. There were family and some of their close friends there. Had a lovely time, played some silly games which was a great ice breaker and got everything mixing together.

Owen had a brilliant time, Brendon is a music producer and a friend has just signed a deal with a record company and been recording his first album. Owen has been writing songs recently and he took them along for Brendon to see. I love this picture - I forget how grown up he is now and it was so lovely to watch him talking to Brendon and friends about his songs and the music he likes.

Brendon's Dad was taking pictures which I didnt realise at the time, but he took one of me and I can actually say I like the picture, now this does not happen often if ever at all actually!

Off to Leeds for a workshop at the weekend, still a few spaces available call 0113 276 5713 if you would like to book a seat and then staying over and at The Craft Box at Elsecar Heritage Centre, Elsecar, South Yorkshire S74 8HJ on Sunday 19th July for a demo from 10.30am - 3:30pm.
