Team Training

Apologies dear bloggers! I have been a bit rubbish with my blog lately, which isn't like me!!! On Sunday I celebrated my birthday, thank you so much to everyone who sent me gorgeous cards, flowers and presents, I am so lucky to have met so many wonderful people through crafting! I will put photos of all my cards etc on my blog soon but to be honest I am still getting a couple each day as the post around here has been so hit and miss lately!

Yesterday I spent a lovely morning with some of my team. I wasn't feel very well at all yesterday and wasn't on top form!!! Felt a bit down actually yesterday which again isn't like me!! Is it the post-birthday blues???? I am feeling a bit better today so thought I must update my blog!!

It was a lovely sunny morning in the conservatoire, I had 7 lovely ladies join me!

I had my christmas display from Saturday on show to let them know how they could run an event of their own!! I am laughing at my reflection taking a photo in the window!!

The projects we made were makes and takes for workshops using Contempo Christmas and the Ornament Punch. We made a very simple card using the In Laid embossing technique.

Then we took it up a level by adding some rhinestones and some ribbon

We also made this double pillow box which I saw on the wonderful Jenni Pauli's blog, a lovely lady who is a SU demonstrator in Germany.

And here is the full set

Thanks to the ladies for bearing with me yesterday whilst I was not on form!!!! Looking forward to our All Day Training a week on Saturday.

I have been busy making cards for upcoming birthdays today but I cannot show any of them until next week! Boo!!
