Good Morning Ladies,
Just look at this stunningly beautiful creation, I love the beautiful floral element that Janet has created in the centre of this card. Janet has used the Creative Expressions Lattice Arched Adornment, finished with pearls around the edges of the card, it looks amazing. The Central Focal frame of the card comes from the Creative Expressions Vienna Die from the Austrian collection, Janet has matted this die cut with some Teal coloured card, to top this Janet has made a delightful arrangement of flowers and foliage, I love the way the foliage swirls from the top to the bottom of the card.
Janet, I really, really want to know where you got that AMAZING butterfly from? it looks like Lace, it is so pretty!
Thank you so very much for sharing this beautiful card with us xxxx
Well ladies I managed to get most of my bags unpacked yesterday and things put away, boy did I take a lot of stuff, mainly because I wanted everyone to have access to a die cutting machine etc.
It was interesting to see how many people still love the good old Cuttlebug, I was surprised that how many people agreed when I said that I thought they should just make a Larger Version of the Cuttlebug, without making any alterations to it, as it seems that we all thought that it was the most sturdy reliable small machine! I know that Patricia said that she had thought the exact same thing.
Maureen told us that her Cuttlebug had popped apart during a die cutting session but she just popped it back together and it continued to work perfectly! (something that can only happen to our Maureen )!
I still keep replaying part of the weekend back through my mind and chuckling to myself, so much humour in one room! Delicious cakes too, gorgeous Lemon Drizzle cake courtesy of Diane, Yummy Swedish Treats from Maria, those Ginger Biscuits were amazing! We had delicious shortbread handmade by Jess, it just melted in your mouth, Patricia bought some of her Scottish Tablet and Baileys Truffles that went down a treat after dinner, I don't think there were many of them left over, the cake that I couldn't get enough of was Margaret P's boiled fruit cake, it doesn't sound anywhere near as delicious as it actually was, I loved it and could quite easily have it as a Christmas cake, I think we should Publish a Cotswold Crafter Cake and Biscuit book. Please ladies can we have your recipes??
That's all from me for now, I will call in again later,
Love and Hugs
