Karen Rocks!!

Did anyone get a copy of Cardmaking & Papercraft today? Well my bff pulled it off again! She was commissioned to do another article...this time on gems and she decided to use Ruby Fairies!! She's done an amazing job as's one of the 5 cards she did using RF.

You'll know by now that Daydreaming Ruby is one of my 8 favourite Ruby Fairies ...well, I can't let the other other's know now can I lol. Still haven't had my Copic lesson from Karen but hopefully the next time she can show me a few tricks.

I went to see my neighbour today. I found out on Friday she was diagonosed with cervical cancer and when I dropped off a card and flowers to her on Saturday night she invited me and a few other neighbours over today. It was by chance they found it and she's amazingly positive. She's had 3 chemo sessions and sadly has lost her hair but she appeared at the door this afternoon with the most phenomenal'd never know it wasn't her own hair. Carol is such a lovely person and I hope and pray everything will be ok. I was putting together one of the projects for next weekends workshop and decided to give it to her along with a plate of brownies I baked which she loved. I've taken pictures so I'll post the project tomorrow.

My new glasses are ready so I'm going to pick them up in the morning. If I get a decent picture of me with them on I'll let you see them. You can let me know if they make me look intellectual!

I'm off to start cutting all the bits for the first project. Hope you've had a good day.

Catch ya later x
