Between catching up with everyone and getting all the gossip, i also manged to make 5 cards at the weekend meet, Sara also managed to take Shell and I too a lovely wee craft shop on the Sunday for a quick look, she mentioned that they sold Whiff of Joy stamps and Sarah kay stamps and Shell and I were in Sara's car in double quick time, before she could change her mind! We all bought some and the shop owner was soon smiling as she had just rung through a £100+ in her till after our quick little visit!
SUNDAYS CHALLENGE - Set By the lovely Shell
Shell's challenge was to decorate/alter a container, we had a lucky dip in a big bag for a container, there were a few different shapes and sizes. I picked out a washing soap tablet box. We were given an hour to complete the task . I covered mine with Claire curd 12 x 12 paper and added a pale turqouise ribbon. I stamped and coloured a popcorn bear image and coloured with promarkers and copics, i layered it onto silver Mirri card and added to box with foam pads, added a large fabric flower with a metal rimmed sentiment for its centre. the top was decorated to match with the same paper, gems added around edge and the word images cut out with my sidekick and sizzlits alphabet, bug in a rug - letters inked to match. really enjoyed this challenge and it's great to have something useful to use at the end of it. thanks Shell x

Met up with the whole gang again on Saturday morning for a day of craft fun and challenges - loved it! It was great to meet up with everyone again - i had met them all at a craft retreat in Blackpool in January of this year, this was arranged by Patsi and Helen and was with other crafters from the Docrafts forum - many of whom i now count as good friends. Will pop on tomorrow and post piccies of what we got up to and what we managed to make! c ya soon xx
