Howdy Cowgirl ...

I have a lovely pink card to share today, made for a very special 'almost a sister in law' who is 25 this week ... what do you call your brothers girlfriend? Anyway, I made this for her as she loves horses and misses Charlie horse a lot since she had to sell him to save up for their own house.

LOTV Colouring Class ...

Yesterday I went to the Lili Of The Valley shop with my Mum for a colouring workshop with the lovely Dawny P. Of course we know her through the Ribbon Girl DT and it is always nice catching up with her and also with Anne who works at LOTV. We had such a lovely day, really easy journey there with lots of chattering in the car - and munching of treats of course :) The class was really good - it's always nice to learn something new and spend time in the company of others who enjoy doing the same things as you do and I was very happy with my coloured in image. Then there was shopping to be done, once my car was loaded with all the new goodies that LOTV have in their shop there was just time to squeeze in a little more chatting then we came home via the fish and chip restaurant for a late lunch.

This morning I have played with all the new goodies we bought at the shop and make a card with the image that I coloured in.

I used:
Jack and Petch image
Perfect Pair paper pad
EK Success flower punch
LaLaLand heart banner die
DooHickeys lace die
Spellbinders circle and scallop circle dies

Yum Yum ...

I made these little pots for the teaching assistants who work alongside me in my classroom. They are fabulous and I really appreciate the work they do 

The daisy flowers and sparkly embellishments on the lids are from The Ribbon Girl and I used box pleat satin and bead string also from The Ribbon Girl. The plastic pots were from the local pound shop - they were the perfect size for 7 cream eggs and a handful of mini eggs ... there were a few left over which of course I had to eat :)
