First of all I would like to let you know that we have a wonderful time at the Party Night last Thursday we had a lot of fun and raised over £200 for Red Nose Day 2009.
We had loads going on, the delightful Lindsay Mason and her lovely new stamp designs, the glamorous Dawn doing a bit of everything!
I was lucky enough to play with the New Hero Arts stamps, Cute little Brenda was doing make and takes, gorgeous Gill using the Cuttlebug and new Gemstone papers, last but not least the fantastic Jo with the “I must have” new stamps from Penny Black.
We all worked really, really and everyone seems to enjoy themselves….. Here are a few pics…..
Now then, my workshop today was jam packed full of mini notelet cards, tag techniques, playing with spray Inks, New Penny Black Rubber Stamps, White Staz on using acetate…….
Here are a few snaps of everybody working so hard. Well done ladies…….

My darling Husband Ewan often offers my services to friends and work colleagues, which I don't mind as it gives me an excuse to craft.
Here is a card I whipped up this morning for a little girl called Amy, who loves Glitter, Pink and Princesses........ I think I caught most of the criteria.
I used the beautiful princess girl from papernation (43301) + backing paper. Chipboard letters with Ultra Think Embossing powder in Sugar Plum, Pink Bazzil and Pink Bazzil bling, gemstones, and some Disney Princess stickers to finish....
Be sure to check in later I have a tutorial for some of the little muted toned cards.
