A Card and Pics of the Workshop























Hi everyone!  It seems that the bauble has proven to be quite popular with the Christmas card loving followers.  I decided to post another sample using it and let you know that they will be back on my next POTW shows in August if you missed it in June!  I requested that they bring that bundle back due to popular demand and it has been accepted.  So look for it to be on along with the new Summer releases from Spellbinders around the 26th of August.  We will have stock of our organza roses back in time for those shows and new colours too!  I am very excited!
   I've also posted a few pictures from the workshops that I taught this past weekend on Saturday and Sunday at the Creative Expressions warehouse in Kettering.  We had a full house both days and a lot of fun, homemade cookies (my other favourite thing to do is bake), laughs and we learned some new techniques (I hope, at least!).  Karen Lines helped me during the weekend and you can see her standing at the sidelines.  I tried to get a few pics while everyone was working away.  I even got a few gals to look up, knoiwing that I was lurking with the camera in hand!  It was a great bunch for both days.  They worked hard and got all the projects finished and still had time to shop in the warehouse.  You can see in some of the pics the aisles and aisles of product just begging to be played with and used on your next project!  It was a fun weekend for all and I hope to do another one soon!  All for now, Sue x

What an Alladins Cave of goodies. Must be a fantastic place to have a workshop. I wouldnt be able to concentrate for looking down the aisles! Your card is superb, the red is so striking next to the white background. Wish you could visit us up here in Scotland!

That was another favourite from the show and I've got notes on the technique (which I expect I won't be able to find come crafting time!!).

If you love baking you should check out www.thecakedcrusader.blogspot.com lots of yummy baking inspiration! ( she's a good friend and I can vouch for the tastiness of the recipes!)

Beautiful card again Sue. It is so effective to use a lot of textured white card.
It looks like everyone had a fabulous time at the workshop (oooooohh, so envious of you all!) and the chance to look round your warehouse?... well that must have been like having all your Christmases come at once!!
Hugs to everyone, Buttons x
