Ohh I've had fun this weekend. I've been to Sheena and Donna's workshop. We made some brilliant projects.
Here's what we made
As you can see we made 3 cards, a canvas and flowers.
Here's for the closer images of the canvas
I really enjoyed making this and can't wait to make some more!!!
Next the cards
We used Sheena's Eye stamp and made two very different cards.
I've got to admit the second one is my favourite.
The final Card using the rock band stamp.
And finally the flowers
Hope you like.

Well what a busy few weeks i've had. I haven't been blogging but I have certainly been creating.
I spent most of a week making things for my sister's wedding.. I am going to share quite a few photo's of them in this post. I have also attended a crafty workshop at Chloe's Creative Cards, made a Wedding Memory Candle, as well as a 1st Wedding Anniversary Frame and a baby plaque. Photos all to follow in separate posts.

Today I have been busy making a 30th Birthday card for an order.
One of the things the recipient likes is cocktails so I thought that Chloe's Creative Cards Cocktail stamp range and her glitter was perfect for the job.
The card blank measure 8x8" and is very sparkly. You can see a bit of the sparkle in the photo but not as much as in real life.
I hope you like. Right now I best go get ready to pick up the hubby from his friends.
