Here we are again another Wednesday!!! Where do the days go? Thank you for all the lovely comments last week.
Well I managed to be ready for my class on Saturday and everyone seemed to enjoy it. One lady bought yummy chocolate cake and another scones with jam and cream - yum- yum yum!!! Not helping my healthy eating plan though :-)

A quieter time than of late. However last Friday evening we had dinner with our youngest son and family - really lovely. The girls went to bed and we ate later so that we had chance to chat :-)
Saturday was class and then I went to lunch and a mooch around the garden centre with two of the ladies.
Sunday was a beautiful day and we worked in the garden - well I told DH what needed to be done lol

Monday a few chores and some crafting. Today I went out to lunch again and a mooch around another Garden Centre and managed to get some birthday presents I needed.
So a very relaxed and enjoyable few days.

My work space has been tidied up after the weekend and yesterday

In background is card I was working on for my son and daughter in law's wedding anniversary - it's not going well!

One of the ladies busy making - love that watch.

 Above are cards and bag we made. I did use some ideas I had seen on Pinterest as I was really short of time. I made some little changes to the originals.

Some birthday cards and a thank you card I made .

 Above some ideas I played with.

  1. You're such a busy bee and making fun memories and cards and friends.. good for you! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. Ahhh a calmer time and pretty creative makes. It is difficult for me to believe your card is not going well, Anne, because you are so much more a pro than I with what you make! I hope you are able to wrestle it into submission so that it satisfies you :-) xx

  3. wow well done Anne love the cards clever ideas indeed!! would have been great to have been there!
    I could have helped pass the scones around or maybe the cake :D happy WOYWW Shaz in Oz.x # no number yet.

  4. Hi Anne, happy WOYWW. Looks like you all had a great creative time at the class, they are gorgeous cards and I think Pinterest is a great asset when the mojo is lacking. Cheers and have a great week RobynO#27

  10. Hi Anne, I love your spotless desk ... it's just ready for a session of crafting. I'm sure you will complete that card to your satisfaction. Sometimes all that's needed is a bit of time away ... maybe another lunch and trawl round the garden centre is all that's called for :) What a lovely array of cards - they are all beautiful - thanks for sharing. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #62

  13. Hi Anne - that sounds like a lovely few relaxing days with the family and friends. I love all the finished projects, too - they must have been very happy with what they produced. Happy WOYWW, Chris # 29

  14. What lovely cards, Anne. Funnily enough I am in the middle of looking at a whole lot of Stampin' Up designs on Pinterest at the moment and amazed at the talent and variety. Thanks for your visit - you certainly do understand the problems of dealing with stubborn elderly ladies lol! I said to my hubby recently, "If I ever get like that, you have my permission to SHOOT ME!!!" Lol! Glad you like my masterboard. I will post about it when it's finished.

    Happy WOYWW,

    Hugs,Annie x # 30

  17. Wow, those cards are stunning - I love the garland circle stamps that you've used, they are so pretty and effective - are they stampin up? The hanging stars are gorgeous too. Thanks so much for stopping by my desk, I hope you have a great week,

  20. I wish I lived closer too. I'd love to learn how to make those beautiful cards. I suppose you then sell the stamps you demonstrate. Good idea. I'd be smitten!
