Morning and welcome to Sunday morning

Hi everyone

I'd like to welcome my two new followers, one from today and another from a few days ago but they aren't the last ones on my list so I don't know who you are and can't leave a link to your blog. You are, however, very welcome and I hope you will stop back and leave a comment sometime. EDITED:- one mystery solved as one of my new followers is Karen Clare - thanks for letting me know, Karen.
FAB day yesterday - a full on day at a workshop by Jane Barber ... paper clay and regular clay .... not sure about the paper clay but it's ALWAYS gr8 to try new things, isn't it?. REALLY enjoyed the other projects and got on pretty well ... speed of light crafter that I am! Check out the pix
Hard at work

My work space ... note the most important item .... coffee!

Engrossed in rolling little bits of clay!

One jelly roll, three sizes!

Everyone's projects ..... I craft so fast that two of these are mine!

All the projects I got made during the day!
All of the top projects (8) were from Paper Clay
My two necklaces, after 30 minutes in the oven at 130°c
My thanks to everyone who came along and who made it such a fun day,  and to Terri for some one on one tuition too ..... can't wait till the next one.

And then, last evening, we were at a pals for dinner too .... a busy (busy, busy) day, frankly, I was exhausted and ready for my bed by the time I got there! A splendid evening and a lovely meal though so glad I went.

No time for much of my regular crafting - but I managed this:-

My splatty card
And a close up to show the three different shades of orange ink used

And co-ordinating inside and envelope
I blame Katie from yesterday's workshop as she made some fab projects in her fave colour

Materials used:
  • 15cm square white, 300gsm, scallop edged card and matching sized envelope
  • Visible Image large splatter image stamped twice in Memento tangelo ink
  • Hero Arts sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • Stamplorations scribble circle stamped using Adirondack sunset orange ink
  • Paper Artsy splatter image stamped using Hero Arts neon orange ink

I'll be entering this for the following challenges:-
  1. Simply Less Is More - challenge #219 "SPLATTERS" - this week is also the dreaded ONE LAYER CARD and, this time, I remembered!
  2. Sister Act - challenge #101 - "Anything Goes"
  3. Little Miss Muffet - challenge #109 "Anything Goes"
  4. Scribble and Stamp - challenge #42 "Anything Goes"
Have a fab Sunday ... I'll be working on catching up on my Saturday/Sunday challenges!
