Good Morning Ladies,
Thank you first of all for all of the wonderfully thought provoking and heartfelt words yesterday, it was hugely comforting to read.
Now on to today's card, this amazing card has been designed by Pat, the background has the 'Bargello' look, although I think that it looks as though it has been created by weaving two different
papers together, I think that Pat has them stamped the stunning image onto the woven background and them cut it into squared and pieced it back together, I may be wrong though, I am sure that Pat will be in to tell us exactly how she created this card. I have to say that I really love the stamp that Pat has used, it's a really striking design. Thank you Pat for sharing with us xxxx
Hazel's Chemo Unit Goodies
The above picture is of the Assortment of goodies that Hazel took into the local Chemo Unit for
their Tea Trolley, the money for these (£188) I believe was raised at the Retreat by Hazel and Patricia selling their gorgeous Wirework Pendants, I am sure the patients will be hugely grateful for the donations for many weeks to come, Hazel also had the fantastic idea of using some of the money to provide small goodie bags for patients that would be in over Christmas, I think that it is a wonderful idea that would be hugely appreciated, well done girls, you deserve to be very proud of your achievements xxx
Sue, Pat and I had a fun day yesterday, we all took out Ultimate Pro boards to Pat's to sit and watch the new DVDs that Pat got when she bought her new Ultimate Pro, I will add that Pat's is a gorgeous purple sparkly ultimate, it was their special birthday edition! We had a go at boxes and a Stepper card, mixed success first time round but we got fab results in the end! xxx
Now I would like to tell you about an idea I have been thinking about to raise some money for Charity, we often discuss baking and ask one another for recipes, they are sometimes hard to find
either on the blog or in an email so I had the idea of creating ......................
The Cotswold Crafter Café Recipe Book
Nothing too fancy, just a simply put together booklet featuring some of our favourite recipes, like
Margaret's Butter Biscuits, Margaret P's Boiled fruit Cake, Patricia's Scottish Tablet, to name but a few, we must all have at least one family favourite recipe.
Let me know your thoughts,
I will call in later,
Love and Hugs
