Yes I am writing this on Tuesday like last week but I will not post it until the stroke of midnight.....or there abouts. lol
Thank you all so much for replying to my question on my last post ...even those who do not scrap had thoughts on it. I am so glad that so many feel that Scrapping is not on the wane and that it will remain steadfast as does card making, while other crafty fancies come and go to add variety to our crafty lives.
I had a great group of visitors last week and managed to make about 70 visits again myself.
Sorry no desk again ....the table has been taken back ...not for eating yet but by a pile of 'rubbish' ....mine I might add .... but nothing crafty ....letters and things that need sorting.
Saturday was crop day ...the Easter Crop ... where there was ... a challenge ... a lesson .. 10 mins of fast and furious egg decorating which I was rubbish at....a raffle ... an egg hunt .... and yummy cakes.
This was the result of the lesson ....brilliantly taught by Vicki who has a knack of making it an individual lesson even though there were 10 or so doing it. The subject of the lesson was creating a 'V' with a different paper or medium behind and then doing something with the resulting wings. Vicki sometimes slips this into her LO's in different formats and members often ask how she achieves the effect. We brought our own bits and pieces, although I did beg a book page but I was not as adventurous as some of the others. Many used string and lace, tore rather than cut and curled instead of folded ...but it was our choice what we did and that made it fun and even more personal. Here are a couple of closeups on the inserted areas ... I managed to finish off some LO's that were waiting for titles and embelishments and I did enter the challenge ...all of which will appear here, during the week ... didn't want to 'LO over load' you ... instead I thought I would add a collage of late spring plants from my garden, to brighten your day. I adore Pieris and Skimmia ....plants that are such good value for money .... they give you something to look at in every season. I am mourning the demise of my Butterfly Bush ...DD and Vicki chopped it all down today as it took over the end of the garden ...self seeding and producing even more bushes....I am hoping a small seedling may have escaped.lol
If you drop by PLEASE say 'Hi' ... it means so much to know you have visited ...and even more if there is a comment ....no matter how tiny.
Again a huge thank you to all that commented last week....it was fantastic to read them all.
Take Care xx
