Thank You Card

I had to make a thank you card for a friend and used some of Rangers new Stamping Paper, well I think it's very expensive and wasn't going to buy any but did is fantastic. I absolutely love it.  I stamped the butterflies onto the paper and coloured them in with the new distress markers.

My friend really liked it and hope you do too.

Art Journaling

Spent a lovely relaxing day at AFTH yesterday.  It was the regular art journalers class and there were 5 new ladies who had never done journaling before....what a treat they were in for.  Dy led them through the whole process, very gently and they all created some fabulous pages in their brand new journals.  The rest of us decided to do the same theme which was the construction of a page, boy, I'd forgotten half Dy had taught us years ago.

Dy's having a preview day of her up and coming workshops next Saturday 17 March, so if you're in the area I recommend you go along and see all the lovely creativity going on there, plus all the goodies in the shop.

I've Been Dinad?

Just spent a brilliant three days at AFTH taking a workshop with the fabulous Dina Wakley.  I wasn't booked to go on this workshop, but my very good friend, my bestist friend, my gorgeous friend (enough with the grovelling) Christine, is ill and was unable to go, so guess who she gave her place and boy am I grateful.  I've been on one of Dina's workshops before and if you get the chance, please go, you'll not regret it.  Here are some pics of what we did, mine isn't finished yet, still more to do

Front of book

We painted, texture pasted, inked, stamped on tissue paper, stencilled, stuck, glued until we were exhausted, but boy did we laugh.

If you want to know more about what we did take a look at my friend Sandy Poppins blog, her drawings are brilliant, and you'll see a picture of me with one of Lady Dy's headscarves on, can't  remember why she put it on me, but everyone thought it suited me, can't see it myself, lol.

I've had a bit of a bad back for a few weeks, and although I did manage over the weekend, on Sunday night I was in agony.  Been to doctors this morning and I've pulled a muscle, what a bummer, still keep calm and carry on as they say.
