...pass the rest of the weekdays in a whirlwind of doing stuff and do not stop until you make time to blog. Bet this sounds familiar, huh.
I cannot explain the frightening speed of time - and no thanks, please don't get all physics on me. I will simply keel over and sleep for a week. And I apparently need to stop sleeping in order to fit stuff in!
So today I bring you a couple of cards that I've actually started and finished for workshops. This star was from last week...I used Reynolds freezer wrap to make the envelope..you see here it has a piece of red card in it. When I use it, it will contain money. Of the folding variety, but not the red colour unfortunately. Red(ish) is the colour of our £50 note. Rare in these parts, believe me! You could quite easily change this into a Christmas card...a gift card in the pocket and some more appropriate text. Ooh, thinking on my feet here. See, I'm trying to trick you into talking about Christmas really. I mean, if I have to - why shouldn't you!
Here's an offering for my first Christmas card workshop this year. Next week. *sigh*. It's very straightforward and my word, they need to be don't they. The 'bling' is foil. The stamps are Stampendous (text) and Magenta. A classic card design..use the text over and over to make the background..even while I was stamping, it took me back to the early days when large background stamps weren't 'invented' yet, and printed papers and all the scrapbook stuff hadn't arrived on UK shores. Unthinkable now, huh!
Tomorrow, Shopkeeper Gal celebrates her first anniversary in her new premises. To celebrate, there is a professional demonstrator in store who will be using Woodware and Stix 2 products. I'm going over after lunch if anyone would like to come with me. The shop is called Kraft Crazy and is at Unit 3 Stonehenge Walk, Amesbury, Wilts SP4 7DB.
Yep, Stonehenge..if you're flying in to get a lift with me, I'll even swing round to the Monument for you. But don't ask me to explain much about it..it's like the speed of time. I can't.
