Craft Barn & a catch-up...

I spent yesterday at the Craft Barn with 5 lovely ladies who inked, die-cut, stenciled and stamped their way through the day...
I gave the ladies the option to choose their colours for creating the cards and they made some great choices - I think we all agreed that 'Peacock Feathers' distress ink is a FAB colour - especially when teamed with gold card stock - lush! (and very opulent)
(Francesca - thanks again for the seeds... :o)..)

I'm back at The Craft Barn next Saturday for a Demonstration/Inspiration Iay where I'll be playing with oh-so-very exciting new products from the oh-so-very clever peeps at PaperArtsy......  I look forward to seeing you there....

Come and join me...

... at the Craft Barn on Saturday (29th) where I'll be running a class, there are still a few places left so call the shop if you fancy a crafty day out..- here's a sneek peek:

And then the following Saturday (6th October) I'll be there again demo'ing some reeeeeaaaaallly exciting new products... seriously exciting (you know that feeling you get when you're so excited about something it makes you feel quite sick..  thats how I feel! lol) & I can't wait to show the products to you - watch this space....

7 hearts for 7 years..

... back in 2005 I married Matt.
Here's the card I made for him this year - I always try to include the same number of heart motifs on the card as the number of years we've been married - this may get trickier the longer we've been married - I imagine the card for our 25th Anniversary will either be reeeally big or the hearts will be reeeeeally small! lol
The pattern on the hearts is quite significant - my lovely husband has over 20 work shirts in his wardrobe and they are nearly all white shirts with variations of blue check/stripes.... that man loves blue!
& I love him.

Hello!

It was Hubby's birthday recently - here's his card - with a crown because everyone gets to be king/queen on their birthday. :o)

Love the silver Frantage embossing powder on the crown & especially the white on the tips and base... blingy but not too much..

.. and, a while back (in time, but only a couple of posts) I posted a picture of my hollyhock that had buds - well here it is with all its fabulous flowers - how gorgeous is that!!!! I really hope all the other small hollyhocks that I've grown bloom into similar colours..
