Creative Saturday.

Yesterday I spend a very creative day with 5 other lovely ladies at Helen's place stamping.... and chatting and eating!!!!!  We had a great day and the time just flew by.  Despite all the eating and talking I did manage to get a few things done...
 A number of these were similar to ones I had done earlier in the week ( but either sold or posted off) so were quick and easy to do second time round.  The bluebell resist I did to show the ladies how it was done.  The final red card with the lovely Sugar Nellie image ( from the lovely Sarah) has a bit of a story to it... I had cut the red card using my Victorian blade on my trimmer and was busy trying to measure up where to make the crease on my Scor-pal as it was a tiny bit smaller than usual... well missed the mark completely and one side was nearly 1 cm shorter than the other.... Luckily found some PP with me that had the scallops on it so cut them out and used them to make up the difference!!!  A good mistake in the end!!!

and this is what our table looked liked
Notice there were some very special goodies... mini Toberones.... yummy.  Helen had been overseas last week and got them duty free....

So a fun day was had by all .... and I got home in time to change to go out for drinks and dinner with my husband's touch rugby mates and their wives..... so an even better end to the day....

Thanks for stopping by and I must say a big thanks for all the lovely comments on my last post.... I really appreciated all your thoughts and good wishes....
