I hadn't realised...

...just how much I had missed Dawn's workshops.

Today was the first one for 2009 as she doesn't hold them during the winter months. The classroom is a large marquee and although it is heated it can't cope with really bad weather...today was bad enough with the driving rain and high winds - we thought we were going to take-off LOL

We made four cards today, each with something that 'moved'.


This pretty lavender slider card used cute Penny Black stamps, Whispers pens and a strip of carrier bag...

When Dawn said we would be making a Jacob's Ladder card in a box my heart sunk as I made a Jacob's Ladder at a fairly recent crop and I did not enjoy the experience - I must say, I was pleasantly surprised as Dawn's method was easy to follow and far more straight forward...

This lovely wedding card uses scented pearl papers, embossed mirrorboard, fabulous fabric on the front and glass beads strung inside - will probably adapt this to make a card for my niece's wedding...

Last, but not least - a penny slider card for a footie fan...


We had a super Roast Beef dinner at lunchtime with all the trimmings and this was followed by the most scrummy lemon cheesecake mmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I've had a super day - can't wait for April................

I love the slider card. I saw a demo and ideal World and I have used them for cards and CJ entries. Never made a Jacob's ladder before. Looks cool!!
