Hiya!!! Well, I survived the weekend :-D I was in the classroom with fellow demonstrator's Ruth and Carol and Saturday was extremely busy. I'm sure there were bus loads of people arriving as just when I thought I could get myself a coffee a group of people arrived. I met some lovely new ladies and also ladies who follow my blog and who I met at the last demo day in July. I met Roni and Lyndi properly this time...both lovely girls. I'm trying to get Roni to stamp more and I think I might have managed :-D She made some signs (thanks Roni!) for me to put throughout CW and above my table and she also gave me a tip on cartridge paper she bought at Tesco that doesn't bleed and I managed to pick up a pad yesterday so will give it a try along with the Neenah that Sue sent me on Saturday and will give my verdict this week :-D. Lyndi made a fantastic football card using Football Jack (you can see it here) for her son who was 3 yesterday...hope you had a good day Lyndi:-D
Sunday wasn't as busy but there was still plenty to do and I managed to have a look at what Ruth and Carol were up to. Needless to say I was knackered by the time I got home so after dinner just plonked myself on the sofa!
I made this card for my friend's first grandchild. I used my favourite PB teddy's and I was really pleased with the result until I found out Luca was born on the 15th not the 16th!! I have to pass the buck onto my friend because the way she worded her text it made it look like he was born on the 16th...that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it lol. I brought the card home and instead of doing the whole thing over I'm going to re-print the sentiment and mount it onto the turquoise cs and cover the existing sentiment. It won't have the same effect as it does now but it will be quicker to do! I used the Ryman's cs that Lyndsey recommended that doesn't bleed with Copics and Promarkers. It's certainly better (less bleeding) but it is quite a bright white which you can see from the picture.
I love these litte bears holding the placards :-D I coloured the bears with Copics and the signs with Prisma pencils.
I picked up a few bits and pieces to play with which I can't wait to get out. Carol was making some gorgeous cards using Martha Stewart punches so I'm going to give them a go. They're bigger than my usual card but the good thing is a lot of them aren't square so I can get out of my square rut lol. Ruth was demonstrating PB Christmas stamps with the new Metallic Stazon which were gorgeous.
Thanks to Gaynor and Donald for inviting me this weekend. I had a great time and look forward to the next one...if they'll have me!!
Catch ya later x
