Sheena and Donna Messy Workshop August 13-14th

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.

Magnolia wedding sparkle and in flight

Hi all

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. Then I have had some very busy days at my work as well as a shopping trip followed by the theater to see Chicago. Wow when you see it all written down you realise how busy you have been. Oh and how can I forget. I also was bridesmaid at my sister's wedding, lol.

Well then now for the photo's of my sister's wedding items.

1st I want to share with you the card I made for her. I must say I am really pleased with how this has turned out and my sister loved it too.
