Tuesday and craft


Welcome to my room . Thank you for calling in .

Hope that you are happily crafting away there .

Thank you to new follower Manderly , who is definately developing a real fun style with her card making and who is new to blogging .

I began crafting , today , at The Round a bout , a Church run venue .

I missed going here last year as DH was not well enough to leave on his own after his stroke .

I had 6 ladies making up the kits I had prepared . It was a bit hectic as the table was placed in the wrong spot but next week should be better

Sandy and Fran ,who have followed me from pillow to post with card making were there and helped a lot by passing on hints and tips to the newbies who made up the numbers , while I was helping with stamping and layering . Thank you friends .

Using an idea I gleaned from a magazine , one of the cards for today was an easle card with papers from my stash and a stamp set from SU , Elements of Style .Card base is River Rock, SU

I kept the designs pretty simple with not much of a technique as I was not too sure how advanced the newbies were with craft .

Doug popped in to see us on his gopher after he had been for his coffee and then went home to turn the crockpot on to be ready for lunch when I got home .

I felt that the ladies had enjoyed making these kits up and I will share another tomorrow night

Tonight now , I will try to visit you and leave some blog love .

In the meantime heres wishing you happy crafting

Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.
