A day for...

...colouring.

As Autumn approaches, the Saturdays workshops at Pinnacles have started again. Andy (Pearson) has a number of workshops lined up that encourage you to get ready for Christmas. This weekend was "Seasonal colouring".

It was only a small 'class' but that was great because there was no waiting around because everyone wanted to use the same stamps.

This cheery Snowman is one of the new Sweet Dixie clear stamps...
 ..."Cute Snowman" SDCDA6079. I have this stamp myself but hadn't yet inked it up.
This was stamped using the new Creative Expressions stamp set...
 ..."Mr and Mrs Claus". There are lots of elements to this set and plenty to play with.
Another new set from Creative Expressions includes this fun chap...
...he is from "Make Gnome Mistake" - isn't he just perfect for a bit of Christmas fun.
This chap was from the same set but I rather rushed him...
...and I'm not so happy with the way he turned out. However, the set of stamps has plenty of other bits & pieces to play around with...
 ...and I will certainly be having a 'play' with those mushrooms. I also think those boots sticking out of the chimney on the other set...
...are just crying out to be used.

All my colouring was completed using Copics.

It was a lovely day sitting colouring in - very restful. Thank you Andy for letting us have a 'play' and get to know more "3 pen shade combos".

My friend Hilary & I made a day of it at usual. We started with coffee & toast before class. Went back to the café at lunchtime for homemade Chicken & Mushroom pie. Then finished off the day with a Tiptree fruit juice - the new English Apple is fabulous.

I don't think you can beat a lovely day of crafting with friends......................................................
