Morning and what a glorious morning it is, not what the weather forecast man predicted at all. I thought I'd share with you some fabbie news, I went to a workshop with Jean Hardy a few weeks back for a weekend of crafting, I have always been a big fan of Crafty Individual stamps and I have quite a few .....well thats a bit of a fib I have quite a lot. I first met Jean at a show where she was demoing her stamps, the backgrounds that she had done for them were amazing so I brought my very first stamps from her, they were mostly the travel ones as I wanted to do an Italian Journal as another of my passions is going to Italy and she had some gorgeous papers featuing Italy........well that was then and then I was hooked. I have been on a couple of Jeans workshops, the very first one a couple of years ago at Yarm, I had never done anything inky before then, in fact I'd never used a Cuttlebug and Jean patiently showed me how to use it along with introducing me to Viva paints.
After the workshop at Whitby Jean wanted a word with me but didn't get the chance as we had to head off home and she was helping another lady so she said she'd email me.........I recieved it a few days later asking me to join her team at Crafty Individulas .......to say I was thrilled is an understatement, I'm still on cloud nine now. Thought I'd show you the photos of the clock I made, if you pop over to The CI blog you'll see some of the other ladies finished ones as well, the challenge this month is 'Time for Summer', and not only that there is Candy to be had......yummy ends midnight tonight so what you waiting for, the goodies are scrumptious including some of the new stamps
