And what fun we had...

Hello, I hope you had a great weekend. Like you already know I had a class on Saturday. I had 10 people booked for this and by Thursday there were only 3 left. So decided against the venue and we held it at my house instead, and because it was a gorgeous day we held in in the garden. Before we started all set and ready to go
However it didn't take long before the girls were well into their projects and the table looked like this
Bless, it was so nice to be outside (we were in shade of course) but we did have a few issues with the bees, they rather liked the bright colours of the paper we were working with. From left we have lovely Alison then, lovely Joanne and peeking in the corner( she was trying to hide) is lovely Jane. They are such a great bunch of girls and I really enjoy their company, we had such a laugh. And of course there was cake as well. ( I dare you to click on this picture and make it bigger)

A rather yummy apricot (cos they are in season) upside down cake served with real dairy vanilla ice cream. Not terribly pretty but very nice. (And yes I scoffed the rest by Saturday night girls lol).

Ok should I show you a card? It was Sunday yesterday and that means one thing , there is a new challenge posted over at SWUS and this time is Christmas. I really need to start on Christmassy makings but here is my first effort, pretty simple one to ease me in nicely and steadily.

Certainly Celery, Real red and Chocolate Chip, Snow Flurries stamp set and Big Deal alpha,the pudding was made with the 1 3/8" circle punch and the scallop circle punch. And check that new twill ribbon out, it ties heavenly, I love it!!!
Ok got to go hope to catch up soon, hugs Monica xxx
