Or it depends how you look at it. I do like my crafty creations to be all my own work but with a baby card to make and this cute Mo Manning topper available - i cheated ! I do actually have this stamp which is beautiful and I love colouring her in - but this is bigger and perfect for this 8x8 card.
The lace is some I have had for years - i bought it for babies bonnets when our Megs was small but it went perfectly around the circle giving it a wispy frame.
So I cheated - but am still happy with the result. Its been posted off to its recipient so I hope she likes it xx
I have a 2 week break from work and have very much enjoyed going back in the craft room for day long crafty sessions. I have been asked to do a few projects for a magazine which wont be out until November so I cannot share them but I can say its Christmassy which I absolutely love. I did get a little carried away and made 6 projects instead of just 3 but they can choose which they like best to use that way.
This coming weekend is my first lone retreat which I am thrilled is full. Its a do your own thing retreat but I do have a Christmas workshop planned for Saturday which is optional. The big event is on Sunday when I am hosting an afternoon tea party. I am thrilled folks have joined in with this and am looking forward to doing the whole "sipping tea with your pinky finger out". I will try to take lots of pictures - though I am usually rubbish at remembering !
Whilst I think on - I will mention here that I run a crafty page on facebook called Skipton Craft club. Initially a place for the crafters who come to the sessions I run to meet and chat inbetween classes - its now Countrywide as we have crafters from all over joining in.
We have a monthly challenge, which I choose and the winner is picked at random and wins a prize. this month the challenge is to go POSH !
As crafters in the group are not just papercrafters I try to pick a theme that will span many crafts. We do have lots of fun and some serious crafty questions are asked and debated and answered by the many experienced crafters on there. If you fancy joining in then please do look us up and request to join.
Well best be off - got a new printer to set up - Yippee ! and an advent calendar to prepare.
thanks for stopping by today
