Play Day.....

I've had a lovely day stamping with my friend Val W.
We did a lot of chatting but also managed to complete 2 projects, one being a Watering Can which you can find the tutorial for on Splitcoast Stampers, and also a Christmas gift bag which I made from bags given to me by the lovely Jenny Moors, thank you Jenny.
The bags made are for children but if making them for 'grown ups' you can really go to town and put lots of glitz and sparkle on. The stamp set used on both these project is SU Season of Joy, all SU card and designer papers have also been used and of course SU oval punches! Cuttlebug flower dies. We also made a Christmas 'Peek a Boo' card but I need to complete that.

Thank you.....

This post is a little late as I have had problems with my PC but better late than never.
Last Wednesday night we had the lovely Jenny Moors from Stampin Up at our craft club, we had a great night. Jenny bought some wonderful cards and boxes to show us and while half of the ladies were watching Jenny doing a demo the other half did a 'make & take' project that Jenny had prepared for us then we changed over half way through the evening.
Jenny 'thank you so much' for giving us a fantastic evening and we look forward to your next visit.
