Another weekend gone

What a laugh we had at the crop yesterday. I don't know if Annette forgot to take her medication or took too much but she kept us thoroughly entertained! Although I had seen Annette and Elaine recently we had a lot to catch up with Julie, Chris and Alison. Julie had made some gorgeous Nikki images using fabric. Instead of paper piecing she fabric pieced! Julie is VERY talented with the sewing machine and used to design and make wedding dresses. She used some leftover scraps of silk for Nikki's tops, pants and even Martini Nikki's couch!! She has taken pictures of the cards she made with them yesterday and will email them to me for me to post.
For the make and take we did the magnet board but I changed it for the crop. The girls loved it and we had a great time making the flowers to be turned into magnets. What a hoot the magnets were...I got super strenghth ones and you could barely pull them apart! Also you had to be careful where you put them down as anything magnetic would end up attached. Poor Chris lost one of her flowers and we hunted high and low for it. Elaine eventually found it attached to the bottom of my tin of colouring pencils lol. Here's the finished result...hope you like it.
The pp is from MME from the Tiny Dancer range and is one of my favourites but for some reason they've decided to discontinue it!!! When I heard that I hunted high and low for it but it was sold out everywhere. If anyone knows where I can get some more please let me know.

This is a cute flower. I cut 4 scallop circles from my Nestabilities, punched a hole in the centre of them with my Crop a dile, spritzed them with water and scrunched them up. Then I gently unfolded them, put a brad through and moved the 'petals' around until I was happy with the look. I waited until it was dry before I attached the bottom flower to look like leaves then attached the magnet to the bottom with Glossy Accents.

Another flower

I was only going to make the 3 flowers for the magnets but Annette loves butterflies and loved the ones I made for Nicole's board so I added them as well. I tried to get the colours to match but the blue isn't quite right.
After we finished the m/t we had lunch then I managed to make 7...yes people...7 cards!!!! I think that's the most I've made in one day in a long long LONG time. I'll post them tomorrow.
I've got a busy week ahead. Tomorrow I have to finalize a few orders and get them shipped off. The rest of my stamps are arriving Tues/Wed so I'll need to count and code them...Annette said she would give me a hand which is fantastic.
That's all for today. Hope you've had a good weekend. The sun has been shining here in Glasgow so hopefully spring has arrived!
Catch ya later x

I want to come to your crop and make these gorgeous things!!! I think flying up could get very pricey though :(

It was great fun Kerry, even though I came out the house with someone elses head on, promise I will be better behaved next time, don't want to be first person ever to be barred from a crop !!!!!!! AX
