Shadowbox card Workshop

Before I move onto the real content of my post, is anyone I know going to the STITCHES TRADE SHOW in BIRMINGHAM this weekend?
I am hopefully going Sunday and Monday and would love to meet up with any of you who might be there.

I had the most amazing group of ladies at my workshop on Tuesday and not only did we have a fabulous fun  morning with lots of laughs, but they made the most amazing cards.

I used the template I made for my Valentine card a few weeks ago and the images came from a Tilda pack called Garden Party.

A spellbinders die creates the aperture and the Chloe stem is a Memory Box die.

The stamps are ones from the Art of Craft workroom (I forgot to see what they are called!!)

I am lucky to have a group of regular participants to my workshops.

They work hard ( well they have to with me LOL).

Two new ladies who came to join me and have booked to come again - they must have enjoyed it then.

We have great fun and alot of laughs along the way.
Christine had to go and I didn't get a picture of her, maybe next time.

Here are the cards they made.

 Thanks for looking and sharing in our workshop pieces.

Take care and have a fun Valentine day. I will be back soon with my Tim Tag for February.

Ken loved his Valentine card I made and we had a laugh because he scoured the shops for something vintage for me.

Today I said I would announce the winner of my 3 year Blogaversary gift.

Three years blogging today (29th January), how amazing is that? And still loving it. 

I have made so many amazing friends through our wonderful blogging community, some I have met in real life others I might meet one day, but every one of you has enriched my life because you have become a part of this incredible artistic journey I am on.

So to say a HUGE thank you for being part of my life I am offering a little thank you give-away.

Dylusions rubber stamps and I love these sayings, I really must use them more.

These pens are very fluid and have a gorgeous mica in them which makes them sparkly.

This Give-Away is for Followers only, anywhere in the world.

Please leave me a comment below, tell me you are a follower (mind you I know quite a few of you are) and I will do the draw on Valentine's Day, the 14th February. If you'd like to post the candy on your sidebar then that would be lovely, but it is not essential.

Thanks for taking part and a massive thank you for being a follower and giving me so much support and encouragement.
