It's been a while ...

...since I spent time making a complete card, never mind two.

I have had the pleasure of attending three workshops with the most beautiful friend Tracy Easson. She is from Scotland and her very kind hubby has driven her down to teach at Art Workshops.
Tracy teaches her drawings in small steps making them achievable.
When I saw her newly released stamps I knew they would be fab, so I had to have a little purchase. I ordered the stamps on Friday at around 3 and they arrived at 10.20 on Saturday morning, great service from Which Craft.

The first is Francesca, which I have painted with DecoArt paint and Oak House Studio inks for the background.

Georgina is so dreamy to colour, I used alcohol pens and distress inks.

Here is Dawn and I with our 'Baker of Dreams' at the end of a workshop, we always have a giggle.

Last weekend I was talking to a friend about all the UFO's I have and this week intend to make a start on finishing some of them before I attempt to remember the steps for the painting that was done by the ladies and gents that attended the retreat.

Long time no blogging

I started my blog a few years ago to record for me, my creations. Looking back over the last couple of years it shows how my hobbies and loves have changed. I spend any spare time making allsorts of stuff. I have a passion for card making mainly using stamps and ink and that will probably never change.
Over the last three years, I have been fortunate to be involved with Art Workshops organised by my buddy Sue. I have met some lovely, talented, unique ladies and gentlemen during this time which I love to meet up with and I think of them as good friends.

We have a lovely location right by the river Tees and the room we use is light and airy, perfect for creating.

I have had the pleasure of attending two retreats in the past and thoroughly loved every minute of them both. Last weekend I was involved in hosting a retreat with Sue and it was amazing.
I will organise the photos and post later this week.
