Well I can't believe it, but I managed to make four cards even though there were seven of us congregated round a dining table in Pauline's kitchen.
Talk about a tight squeeze! We didn't care though. We were having a great time, using each others 'stuff'. There was a bacon butty (sandwich), to start us off. (It's a tradition now).
Made a card or two and went to Hobby Horse for a browse. Can't not visit a craft shop, it wouldn't be polite! Got a bargain or two! All Christmas stuff was half price! Got a set of Papermania clear stamps for £3.95! There are TEN stamps in the set and they are a good size too.
Got a Craftwork Cards paper pack, Plum Pudding for £2.85. There are 36 sheets of 6x6 papers in the pad. Two reels of Christmas grosgrain ribbon for £1 and a punch for £1.
Then I bought some Bazzil CS. I'm really short of chocolaty colours. I only spent £12!
When we got back, we were starving and had ham sandwiches. Copious amounts of tea and coffee supplied all day by Robert, Pauline's star of a Hubby. More playing..ooops! I mean crafting LOL then it was tea -time. Cottage pie! Scrummy!! Followed by a delicious strawberry and yogurt terrine. Wow! We were stuffed!
Pam and I left at about 10.15pm. Shattered but happy.
Here are the fruits of my labours......LOL
The cupcake image and scroll stamp are mine.
I finished this one when I got home. I added the silver filigree corner and the little square with the flower from the SU Close as a Memory set.
LOOK AT MY WATERMARK!!!!
It was made for me by the enormously talented Jennifer.
Isn't is fabulous! It's exactly as I wanted. You are SO clever my friend.
(I need a bit of practice to get the size right, but I'm almost there).
Thank you so much! :0)
Thanks for dropping by and staying the course.
Hope I've not sent you to sleep! LOL Viv xx
