Workshops and Dabble Day

Just a quick post to let you know that I am doing a workshop Sunday the 8th at Jay's Crafts in Milton Keynes. The following weekend on Sunday the 15th  I am doing a Dabble Day at Loobi Crafts in Leighton Buzzard.  There are still a few places left for both if you are interested.  Both days will be great fun with completely different projects so you could even do both if you are up for a few days of techniques, ideas and crafting fun!  To further entice you, I am baking (my other love behind crafting and my lovely daughter and family, of course!) my special homemade goodies for both!  For more info on either days, contact the stores directly.  Jay's Crafts at 01908 565578  and Loobi Craft at 01525 838535

On another note, I had mentioned on air that my next C & C show was on Aug. 28th, but that has been postponed for the time being.  Hopefully I will have a firm  date on my next show very soon.  In the meantime, I will give you a sneak peek at one of the sample cards for the show.  The show is based on Sam Poole's lovely new Vintage Christmas Postcard Stamp sets.  Here is a really simple, easy card using one of the images, but I wanted to show it for another reason too.  We have been sent a sampling of the latest additions to the Spellbinders Nestibility range.  This card showcases one of my favs from the new line.  It is a scallop oval but with cut out areas.  I just love it!  They are due to arrive sometime late August/ealy September.  Keep watching the Particraft website for their arrival.  What do you think?  All for now, Sue x

Great card. I love the embossing, I think it adds so much. That is a really neat scalloped oval, which is not a good thing as now I want one too.

Ohh more new nesties! I hope they dont pospone that show for too long, we are already having withdrawal symptoms! They need to put on shows like yours more often, not less.....I wait with bated breath. The stamps look good, am away to see if they are on the website to see the full range :)
