Christmas catering and not a turkey in sight.... too much chicken though!


















Finally found a few mins to update my Blog! Life's been a bit busy - fortunately, all nice things! Christmas has hit the craft shops and despite the beautiful sunshine we had over the weekend all us crafters were having a great time at CUL's Christmas Extravaganza! Once again, I met up with my ever increasing circle of crafty friends and we all oo'd and ah'd over what we'd bought and ALL of us admitted we just don't get enough time to sit and play as much as we'd like to. There were some amazing demos and classes going on and a real buzz about the place!

I've made some cards - some in classes, some at home and some with the swapping of ideas with my mate SarahK!

Here are three cards I've had to make recently - the wedding one is for an ex-colleague of mine who is getting married in a couple of weeks, I used doodlebug embossed white card for the main body and wrapped some of the beautiful tulle available from CUL, the names were done on my computer. The CD card is for my friend's son Oliver who will be 21 this week thanks to SarahK for the inspiration. The third is a Jolly Nation decoupage set for my friend Mike - guess what? he's a fireman (sorry fire fighter) who is a great deal older than 21 this week....

Off to Mrs. Wonka's tomorrow evening and then to another class on Thursday. Thanks to Treacle for helping me with my counter. Thanks to Sue for giving me such a laugh (behind the scenes) on Saturday. Thanks to everyone at CUL for a great day and letting me be part of it!
