Thank you for all the lovely greetings last week. Despite us getting some very sad news we did manage to have a lovely day.
Mum has had a pacemaker fitted - yesterday and is now at home with my sister. All went well and we hope that this will make her feel a lot better.
Well onto my desk.
I have had quite a few cards to make of late and not much enthusiasm as I've said. However got back into it more this week. Good job as I am having a table at the Community Association Open Evening on Thursday to promote classes. If all goes well I am going to be holding a workshop there on Sat mornings. So I've been preparing a few bits for that. Luckily had some stuff already made which I will use. will try and get a photo of my table if I can.
All very self explanatory really.
Below you can see I've been using my glue gun. first time in use despite buying it last year at the NEC at Art and Craft Show in Nov. Good job it works!!
This one is for our granddaughters. Ella goes into Year 1 on Thursday and Phoebe will start her new nursery next week. She is going into the nursery at the school she will start next year (same school as Ella)
Have to say that I made this after seeing the absolutely gorgeous one (this is nothing like it - gorgeous that is ) I saw on Sheena's Blog - thanks for giving me an idea Sheena. Sheena used ladybirds like these on her card and I remembered she sent me some once. Great. The girls will love them. The girls are blonde and wear grey pinafore dresses and red cardigans.
Below is what I used the glue gun for. I eventually got round to having a go at this - from Stampin Up last Christmas. I just cut the shapes from some of SU's paper I had left as well. Enjoyed making it and have some ideas for a simpler version for the workshop if it happens.
And finally my bouquet from DH last week
and a beautiful sunset.
I will visit as many as I can but it might be tomorrow night as doubt I will get much chance with the girls here :-)
