Friday 17th September 2010

WOW what a week! it was Steves Birthday and our Wedding Anniversary so we both took a couple of days off work!! which was lovely!

This week also saw the sale of Tim Holtz tickets for his workshop in Newport Pagnell in February 2011 - well, couldn't let that pass by without trying to be part of it could I? my hero teaching on these shores!! well, I managed to butter up Steve and Christmas came early with my ticket - so, we'll be off to learn amazing things with the creator of all things distressed!!

So, its Friday again, and its another SCD day....hopefully a few more SCD'ers will join us this week and make some arches - this week its Sioux's first theme choice and she's chosen:-


so here is my arch:-

the photograph is seriously lacking as there wasn't alot of light about - will try and take a better one this weekend.

The base is the usual white card which has been coloured using DI's the background was a star stamp with other star stamps used in the corners, all stamped with di's - the main stars are grungeboard shapes coloured with di's and coated with rangers' Matt accents and then hi-lighted with white pen!

Do pop on over to the SCD blog and see the what the others have come up with - and hopefully some of you will join us this week.

Also, this week, I'm teaching a class at "Crafts By Candlelight" on Bramford Road in Ipswich - the class is on Wednesday starting at 6.30pm - we will be making a sectional pizza box measuring 4" x 4" - and then creating background papers using di's and collage stamping and hi-lighting and our own embellishments to finish it all off. If you're interested please contact Diane at Crafts by Candlelight....

Have a good weekend.

TFL xx
