Quick catch up and thank you

Good afternoon one and all, hope everyone is having a great weekend and some of the sunshine we have been treated to here in the Fens. Afraid I have been rather quiet all weekend and apologise that I am all behind on visiting you all but yesterday was all taken up with my demo day at Sir Stampalot and the today we have some unexpected visitors so this is a very brief catchup so you don't think I have abandoned ship.Here is a quick share from yesterday (and really quick explanations - smells like the chickens nearly ready and I am meant to be entertaining visitors) and I also want to say a very special thank you all everyone who came along to see me on Saturday, too many to name individually but I met some of my blogland friends including Chris, Denise and Alice and her daughter for the very first time which was loveley. And there were even one or two men crafters which was really wonderful........now does that sound right........what I mean is, it's great to see that this obsession of ours is not female dominated......grief, think I will quit whilst I am ahead and hope you all know what I mean ?
The first card used Penny Black 3997K and 2636K in the background, shaded with Tim Holtz broken china and spiced marmalade. DP is My Minds Eye and lots of buttons to decorate.

The second one good old Stampendous P107 onto a background brayered with Kaleidecolour Bouquet and some DP from stash, roses made from the same DP and border punched with Martha Steward arch lattice.

  3. Two of my all time favourite stamps here Brenda and two very lovely cards. Sounds like everyone including you had a fabby day yesterday. I had a go at brayering yesterday - complete failure but I will keep trying and maybe one day I'll have something worth looking at. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

    Love Lynda xxx

  21. Hi Brenda. Great cards as always. I hope your chicken tasted good, I could almost smell it from here. Can you send some of your sunshine over our way please, it's been cold and grey here, we're just not used to the chilly weather after being spoilt by a lovely autumn.
