I'm spending the weekend with one of my favourite friends and doing what I love best, eating, drinking, gluing and sticking. I arrived last night and have been having a blast ever since. This morning I made a card for breast cancer, I challenged myself to use no patterned paper, I'm not sure why I thought that would be fun, but hey! The card was also inspired by challenges at:
CRAFT challenge - monochrome
PaperCutz - Breast cancer awareness
Card - Papertrey ink
Die cuts - Slice Think Pink and basic elelments
Embossing folder - cuttlebug
Ribbon - Papertey ink
Then we popped out for a bit, lunch at Ruskin Mill, which is always yummy and wholesome. Today it was broccoli and cheese pancakes.
After some retail therapy and a quick visit to see Nick, Anna's boyfriend we made it home just in time to set up our downstairs crafting space before we settled in for a night of Strictly Come Dancing, X-factor and Pierce Morgan. I think this a my perfect craft space with an obligatory glass of Prosecco!
Our challenge tonight was to make cards for the Hucklow Christmas fayre. As well as being a great place for our scrapbooking weekends they also do some great work up there - Send a Child to Hucklow, so we thought we'd like to support them. We found some very (and I mean very) old Create & Craft kits and just put them together. It's quite satisfying to make over 80 cards between the of us. Here's one set:
Right I'm off to bed now to get that extra hours sleep!
