Happy retirement

Good evening

I am sharing a retirement card tonight, one I crafted for Neil and his shift to give to their retiring day shift supervisor

The card is an 8in x 8in size, giving plenty of room inside for all the guys to sign

I used a Crafters Companion stamp, the image was coloured using Distress Inks and the sentiment was computer generated

Love and lazy days

Birthday wishes

Good evening

I have just been sorting and editing photos and have found a few items that have not yet been shared on here or the shop site

So I will be along over the next few days to share my last couple of weeks crafty projects

Tonight I am sharing a birthday card

I used dies by Cheery Lynn, a Tim Holtz Embossing folder, sentiment stamp is Stampin' Up as are the flower stamps and punches, papers were all out of my scraps box

I must say a massive thankyou to two very special people this week

Ann, you have been an absolute rock over the last few weeks, you know why, thankyou so much xxx

Jan, I could not have managed on wednesday without you, thankyou so much for taking the class, locking up, tidying up and all the other little things, far too numerous to list but every single one appreciated xxx

I also need to thank all my lovely friends who have sent me emails, texts and messages, all the lovely kind words spoken in person and the flowers and cards, and especially the hugs ( I even receive a hug all the way from Sweden, thankyou Inga-lil) xxx

As most of you know, our family has been through a  hard few weeks, no worse than anyone else, but sad none-the-less, we have had such a lot of support, genuine heartfelt kindness, thankyou so much, I am so blessed to have so many thoughtful people in my life, bless you all xxx

Love and heartfelt hugs

Jan's Box Class

Good morning

I think that's a first, me blogging in the morning ! Unless of course we are talking early hours 

Anyway just a fly by post today, I am well aware my blog has been neglected, my friends and regular readers know that as a family we have had an incredibly difficult month, I have had time to blog, but not the heart if I am honest, I will update soon but for now I am keeping all the emotional stuff in check and stopping by to share with you all the new box class Jan will be teaching this saturday

We do still have a couple of places so if you fancy making this stunning box please telephone the shop or pop in to book your place, spaces are limited and we do need to know by close of business on friday as Jan will be preparing your kits at home

Here are all the details from Jan herself :

September Box Class

Hi Everyone
I'm back again with this month's box making class. This time we're making a traditional chocolate box (though it would be good for all sorts of small pressies, or you could just keep it yourself).
It's in gorgeous brown and aqua, one of my favourite colour combinations, and it's quite easy to do, though you may learn some new tips and tricks along the way.

It's this Saturday, the 27th of September
from 10.00 till 1.00
and costs £7.

I do hope you can join us
Love and craftiness
