Saturday Workshop

Good evening, just a quick stop by this evening to remind you I am holding this workshop on saturday - this saturday 30th November

10 am to 3pm ish

I managed to get hold of just a couple more frames so I have just two spaces extra if anyone is interested

The price of the class is £20 and includes all you need to alter the frame and to create all the little decorations inside

Please telephone the shop to reserve your place

Deck the halls with boughs of holly, tra la la la la, la la la la

Yesterday saw me stepping into Bonnie's shoes just for the day, due to prior arrangements Bonnie was unable to teach the monthly die cutting class.

The shop is currently in full Christmas mode so I promised two more cards towards the steadily growing yuletide supplies.

We performed a special cut and and emboss technique on this first card

And some lush traditional colours on this second card

It was a lovely day, we had some new faces to the class too.

Thankyou to everyone for their patience, I hope I lived up to the high standard Bonnie has set !

Also thankyou to my regular lovely ladies who always stay back after class to help me clean up, I really do always appreciate your help - thankyou xxx

This marks the last die cutting class for this year as December's class falls too near to christmas, but the class will resume as normal in January.

Happy Birthday baby girl

Twenty years ago today I was cradling a tiny little bundle all in white

Our first child

Our daughter

Twenty years ago today I was the proudest mum ever

Today I am still the proudest mum ever

Amy you are so beautiful both inside and out

You are kind and generous, forgiving, understanding, clever, thoughtful and the most perfect daughter we could wish for xxx

Here is the card I made for Amy

This is an 8in square scalloped base, altered to create an easel card

Papers are by Tilda

Today has been a hard day for me, it is the first year in twenty years that I have not been able to wish happy birthday in person, nor have I been able to hug my daughter on her birthday, but I honestly couldn't be prouder of the little girl who has grown and developed into an individual, unafraid of blazing her own trail and daring to be different.

Happy birthday Amy

Love always
